How To Have A Dry Orgasm - Multiple Orgasms for Men
Ever Had A 'Retrograde Ejaculation'? You Don't Want To
With all the hoopla and and hysteria surrounding the oft-elusive female orgasm, the male orgasm is pretty much taken for granted. After all, it's not that hard to make it happen, or to see proof when it does. But what if we told you: orgasm and ejaculation are not the same thing.
The good folks over at TheFrisky.com have officially blown our minds, and it's all because we thought we knew what it meant to blow your wad.
Oh how wrong we were. Apparently there exists a sexual condition called dry orgasm, which allows a man to have an orgasm without ejaculating. The non-explosion can stem from a number of factors, including self-workouts similar to female Kegel exercises, but it still results in the same release of pleasure.
Just without the spermy mess.
A dry orgasm, writes Kate Hakala, "can mean multiple orgasms for men. After a man ejaculates, there is a refractory period -- a recovery stage of the sexual response cycle -- in which he cannot ejaculate again and most likely will want a snooze. He may be able to get an erection, but there is a bit of a waiting period that's different for all men, sometimes minutes and sometimes a day, before he can actually produce semen again."
But if you're not using up semen ...
"While ejaculation causes the need for a refractory period, orgasm does not," Hakala says. Hurrah! Multiple orgasms for everyone!
However, before you start pumping iron with your penis, know that a dry orgasm can have its setbacks. Like "retrograde ejaculation."
This occurs when "semen flows backwards into the bladder through the urethra instead of coming out the normal spout," explains Hakala. It also might be a side effect of diabetes or multiple sclerosis, so go see a doctor if your urine is cloudy.
