Heck Yes, It’s Important
Ask any man what the best part of sex is and he’ll tell you the same thing: orgasm. But few men really understand what male orgasm is and why it feels so incredible. Even fewer understand how aging and hormone imbalance can have a dramatic effect on reducing the pleasure and power of their orgasms.
The male orgasm has psychological as well as physiological effects. Some men describe a focal experience, feeling their orgasm exclusively in the scrotum and in the genital area. Other men report their orgasm as a sensation that spreads to various parts of the body. Others state that their orgasms are felt throughout their bodies. Just how much of the sensation of orgasm is physical and how much of it is psychological is difficult to judge.
The male orgasm is a complex experience, but at Renew Man we understand that for most men, the ability to achieve orgasm is an important part of feeling masculine. We want to help you understand the mechanics behind male orgasm and ejaculation, as well as what can be done when a man experiences no orgasm.
What Every Man Should Know About Male Orgasm
- Male orgasm and ejaculation are not the same thing; although ejaculation (which is the ejecting of semen from the prostate through the penis), is usually accompanied by orgasm in men.
- Men experience orgasm through a series of steps involving the interplay of hormones, blood vessels, nerves and a variety of organs working together. The end result—orgasm—is usually the ejaculation of semen through strong muscle contractions.
- Testosterone is the fuel behind the process leading to orgasm in men.
- The free testosterone found in a man’s bloodstream, along with other hormone interactions, determines the strength of his libido (i.e. desire for sex). Sex drive is key in kicking off the process that will lead to male orgasm.
- If a man has little or no sex drive, has low testosterone, imbalanced hormones, or is suffering from depression, his body may not respond to sexual stimulation, and he may not be able to achieve orgasm.
- As men age, they experience a decline in testosterone, which causes a decline in sex drive. The ability to have an orgasm also declines as men age.
- Sex drive is the foundation of an orgasm, and loss of sensitivity in the penis often accompanies the loss of sex drive.
- Level of excitement during foreplay and sex determines level of sensitivity and strength of orgasm.
- Replacing testosterone to healthy, younger levels will usually return sex drive and sensitivity to acceptable levels, and thereby return or improve the ability to orgasm.
Common Questions Regarding Male Orgasm
Does having a vasectomy affect the ability to orgasm or the quality of orgasms?
No. A vasectomy just cuts off the flow of sperm to the prostate. It has no effect on sex drive and/or orgasm. A man with healthy testosterone levels who has also had a vasectomy should still be able to achieve a quality male orgasm.
What affects my ability to have an orgasm, and the quality of my orgasm?
Testosterone level has the greatest effect on the ability to have an orgasm, and on the quality of orgasms. Testosterone deficiency results in diminished sex drive, and a diminished sex drive can make achieving an orgasm very difficult. Low testosterone and low sex drive can also prevent you from achieving or maintaining an erection.
Does my physical condition have anything to do with my ability to orgasm?
Yes. Excess body fat causes estrogen levels in men to rise, which can devastate a man’s sex drive. Get in shape, and your ability to achieve and enjoy orgasms will increase.
