Male Orgasm: The Pleasure Before You Come

When we talk about the male orgasm we must first mention that this fascinating and complex phenomenon has intrigued scientists, physicians and people of all ages and genders for centuries. Male orgasm is usually confused with ejaculation, however, here we will explain in depth the difference between the two and how, being two naturally linked processes, they are not necessarily achieved together. We will show the factors that affect it and the benefits it can offer for both men’s physical and emotional health.

What is Male Orgasm and how is it produced?

The male orgasm can be defined as the release of accumulated tension after genital stimulation being the climax of pleasure but prior to ejaculation. It occurs as a result of a series of physical reactions during the development of sexual tension, characterized by a series of rhythmic contractions in the muscles of the pelvic area, accompanied by a progressive succession of physical and psychological sensations followed by an intense feeling of release and satisfaction.

Stages of Orgasm in Men

  • Excitement: It all starts in the mind. It is often thought that men are aroused by physical contact alone, and this is not entirely true. The excitement phase begins to develop in the mind with emotions, an idea, an image, even auditory stimuli.
  • Plateau: During this phase, arousal reaches its maximum level and remains at its highest point for a certain period of time. At this time the body prepares for orgasm. We can notice how breathing becomes more rapid and shallow, the heart rate increases, there is reddening of the face and there is a noticeable muscle tension.
  • Orgasm: It is intense arousal at its peak. It is an intense sensation that produces a lot of pleasure, it can last between 3 and 15 seconds. Sexual tension builds up to the highest level and then it is when the body and genitals release the accumulated pressure.
  • Ejaculation: At the climax of the process, the pelvic muscles contract rhythmically, producing the release of semen through the urethra. This release is accompanied by an intense feeling of pleasure and satisfaction.
  • Resolution: After ejaculation, the body gradually returns to its resting state. Muscles relax, breathing and heart rate return to normal and arousal decreases.

Types of Orgasms in men:

  • Typical orgasm: Although the duration of this orgasm is short, it allows reaching a very intense level of pleasure and is achieved by considerably increasing sexual energy and moments of arousal, until making it reach the maximum peak.
  • Total orgasm: This orgasm produces a pleasurable sensation that expands throughout the body, slowly in a progressive manner and in some cases causes spasms that extend and make the moment more pleasurable.
  • Dry orgasm: Many times to prolong the highest moment of orgasm, some men manage to delay ejaculation, this is called dry orgasm. Dry orgasms occur at sexual climax and there is no release of semen. Or if there is, it is a very low volume.

How to Enhance Male Orgasm

  • Foreplay is essential.
  • Progressively increase the stimuli.
  • Use the senses: look, smell, touch, listen, lick…
  • Vary sexual positions and at each change touch and/or lick the penis firmly but slowly.
  • Give and take. When you feel that you are reaching the point of climax slow down and enjoy with slow but steady movements.
  • Finally, let yourself go and enjoy the moment to the fullest.

Factors Influencing Male Orgasm

  • Stimulation: There must be intense, quality stimulation so that the orgasm experience is not impaired.
  • Emotional StateDisinhibit yourself completely, because if your mind is occupied with other things such as work, stress, etc. Emotions may negatively influence a man’s ability to achieve orgasm.
  • Age: The male orgasm can transform as the years go by, because testosterone levels can decline and elasticity in the blood vessels decreases.
  • Medications: Some types of medications can affect not only vitality but sexual function and the ability to achieve orgasm.

Health Benefits of Male Orgasm

  • Stress Relief: The state of relaxation that occurs in the body after an orgasm in a powerful stress reliever promoting stress and tension reduction.
