      I think the joke is that “squirt” from women is pee and people do a lot of mental gymnastics to avoid saying they’re getting pissed on. Like an equivalent to a yellow snow joke. It also hinges on the fact that Squirt the beverage is a grapefruit soda that also doesn’t taste anything like lemonade

        The porn industry’s marketing is pretty wild. They rebranded watersports and made a generation think that losing bladder control during sex was a desirable outcome and that it wasn’t pee.

        What is sad is that it worked because basic human anatomy is not common knowledge.

          It isn’t urine, at least, not all of it or not always. It has a certain smell and it’s not the scent of urine.

          I’ll tell my wife that I need more data (taste, etc.) Double-blind testing this is going to be… interesting…

            Look at female anatomy in a textbook and tell me what gland or organ excretes that much fluid from the urethra that isn’t the bladder.

            You are into piss play. There is nothing wrong with consenting adults having fun with pee, the problem is calling piss something else and pretending that it isn’t piss to preserve a porn marketing induced delusion.

              I’ve heard a bit about the “Cowper’s gland”; female version of the prostate?

              Like you say, I’m fine with it, pleasuring her until she loses control is my kink and it’s less messy/dangerous than scat. 😂

              Marketing’s job is to warp reality. 🤪

                You are probably thinking of Bartholin’s or Skene’s glands, located by the vaginal opening on both sides towards the bottom and top respectively.

                The Bartholin’s are about the size of a pea and produces a few drops of fluid, like precum, and is analogous to the male Cowper’s that produce precum. The Skene’s are about the diameter of a pea but a couple centimeters long and produce a few milliliters of fluid and is analogous to the male prostate, that produces the majority of seminal fluid.

          Losing control of bodily functions can be hot in some situations. But in porn they aren’t even trying to make it look natural. They just pretend to cum, and take a piss. You can see them pushing it out; it’s not sexy or appealing. It’s fake.

        I’ve fucked around and made some pussyhavers cum before but only one time did one of them decide they wanted to “show off” by squirting. It was not my favorite

    I know calling lemon/lime flavored soda lemonade is a regional thing, but I don’t remember what country it’s from. Australia, I think?

        Wow, I had no idea it was that widespread. I don’t look down on it or anything, languages be localised and all that, it just seems odd to me from a practical perspective, because what I call lemonade and lemon-lime soda are super different to me and lumping them under the same name seems like it’d make it difficult to specify which one you mean, but maybe it’s kind of like sparkling water, it’s still water but with bubbles? Idk flat sprite is still a lot different from lemonade but still vaguely lemony… I think it’s one of the neater differences in terminology between countries tbh.

          In the UK, you can generally still find what you’d recognise as lemonade, but more likely under names like cloudy/flat/traditional/homemade/US style lemonade, then double check the ingredients for carbonated water. If it’s just called lemonade (or cherryade, limeade, orangeade etc), it’s fizzy.

          The other way round, I used to be mystified how Calvin & Hobbes or Bart Simpson etc managed to sell lemonade on a table in front of their house, without a CO2 canister :)
