7 Little-Known Facts About Male Orgasm

A lot of attention has been put lately on the mysterious world of the female orgasm, while the male orgasm has been left alone, taken for granted for being too straightforward (bad pun fully intended.).

While the world scrambles to figure out the secrets of female sexuality, it oftentimes forgets we still do not know everything about men.

That’s right, guys, your sexuality is just as much an uncharted island of curiosities as the ladies’ is, and science is still trying to figure you out.

So what exactly do we not know about male orgasms? It turns out, there's a lot. Like, did you know that men have the potential to have multiple orgasms? Did you also know that men who ejaculate more frequently are believed to have a reduced incidence of cancer?

Here are 7 Facts about a man’s happiest moment.

1. Frequent ejaculation may lower your risk of cancer

As if orgasms couldn’t get any better, they also have the potential to fight cancer. A study presented at this year’s annual meeting of the American Urological Association in New Orleans found that men who reported a higher frequency or ejaculation (about 21 times per month) reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 20 percent.

Dr. Jennifer Rider, an author of the study, claims this is most likely due to the release of the hormones like oxytocin, which is known to lower blood pressure. So, if your partner asks next time you want to do it, it’s strictly for health purposes.

2. Sperm's at its best when it comes earlier [bad pun once again intended]

According to researchers at the Ginemed Assisted Human Reproduction clinic, there is a significant difference between the first and second wave of ejaculate.

The first wave tends to have sperm that have better quality DNA, are more mobile, and more numerous.

When a male ejaculates, different waves of semen are released in separate contractions. Scientists believe that the first wave tends to be higher quality than the second because the first wave is designated to fertilize the egg, while the second prevents other guys from finishing your work for you. 

While premature ejaculation (PE) may be a serious hit to your ego, it turns out that not holding out has psychological repercussions for your partner.

According to a study published by The Journal of Sexual Medicine, women whose guys tended to finish a little early reported feeling high psychological stress and little sexual satisfaction, but not for the reasons you may think.

Although women usually take longer to climax then men, women whose partners had issues with PE felt less strongly about their partner's lack of duration, and more strongly about their partner's paying less attention to their needs.

To about 40 percent of these women, the sexual aggravation mostly came from feeling their men were being selfish in the bedroom.

3. Orgasms during sex reign supreme

While you may not need science to tell you this, researchers went ahead and proved it anyway, finding orgasms during sex are significantly better than the ones you experience on your own.

A 2006 study discovered that sex orgasms tend to be earth-shattering because your body releases 400 times more prolactin than it does when you’re flying solo.

Although prolactin is often known as the breast milk hormone, recent research has also found that low levels of prolactin affect men’s sexual health, too, and could lead to erectile dysfunction.

4. It's faster than a speeding bullet

Okay, maybe not that fast, but it’s still pretty remarkable. According to Men’s Health, the average speed of male ejaculation is 28 miles per hour. Usain Bolt’s fastest recorded speed falls short compared to this number, at 27.79 miles per hour. That’s right, ejaculation speed is faster than the fastest man on earth. You may want to refrain from entering any races, though.

5. Male and female orgasms may be more similar than we think

Turns out the duration and intensity of an orgasm doesn’t vary based on gender. Instead, orgasms are different among different people and can usually come in two forms.

A study published in Psychology Today claims that there are two forms of orgasms;

Type 1 happens most frequently, consisting of 6 to 15 high intensity contractions over a 20- to 30-second period.

The other kind, type 2, happens to a smaller amount of people who will experience irregular contractions after the initial orgasm, lasting 30 to 90 seconds.

Like I said, this varied on a case-by-case basis. The male vs. female debate is pretty much irrelevant.

6. There is such a thing as a "dry orgasm"

A dry orgasm, better known as a retrograde orgasm, occurs when semen enters the bladder instead of exiting the penis during ejaculation.

This usually happens if a pre-existing health condition causes the muscle controlling the opening to the bladder to malfunction when semen is travelling.

You will still experience an orgasm if this happens, but little to no semen will be expelled. While dry orgasms do not cause many health issues, it has often been associated with male infertility.

Treatment for this issue is only recommended if you are trying to become a father.

7. Men can have multiple orgasms — it just takes work

Everyday Health reports that most men feel multiple orgasms are impossible with an average 30-minute refractory period between sexual activity.

However, some men are able to orgasm without ejaculation, which many believe is the key to achieving multiple orgasms.

There are men out there who are penis senseis, and they’ve mastered the art of having multiple orgasms in one period.

The answer? Training.

According to Men’s Health, multiple orgasms can be achieved by doing things like managing your testosterone levels, practicing your own form of Kegel exercises, or changing up the position during sex.

Everyday Health warns that your mind has a lot to do with it; the more pressure you feel, the less likely it is to happen. The best way to go about it is to relax, and just enjoy yourself.
