Women can experience subsequent orgasms without much fuss but the question is, can men do the same?
Are there multi-orgasmic men?
Are there men who can ejaculate multiple times in one hour?
Most people think that men have it easy when it comes to issues related to sex. Unfortunately, there are so many issues that ail men from premature ejaculation to erectile dysfunction and many others.
Understanding the Male Orgasm
The male orgasm is more like the guns from the late 1800s. With such guns, it was not possible to shoot bullets one after the other. The shooter had to take time to reload, add gunpowder before taking another shot.
Same case applies to the male orgasm, it’s not possible to experience multiple orgasm like women.
According to sexologists, men can’t experience multiple orgasms due to the refractory period.
The typical male orgasm has three stages; the excitement phase, plateau phase and the refractory period.
During the excitement phase, the nipples get hard and things like that. It’s followed by the plateau phase which is characterized by increased arousal and ultimately leads to ejaculation.
The final stage is the refractory period which is often characterized by a flaccid penis and can last for a few minutes up to several hour. The length of the refractory period varies depending on age.
Younger men tend to have a shorter refractory period and can ejaculate more times than older men.
As you age, the number of times you can have subsequent orgasm goes down.
Research shows that 18-year-olds have the shortest refractory periods of about 15 minutes while 70-year-olds require up to 20 hours to ‘recharge’.
The average refractory period for all men is 30 minutes.
A Normal Functioning Man Can Come Twice in An Hour
On average, if you resume sex immediately after your refractory period, how many times do you think you can come in one hour?
That’s 60/30꓿ 2 times. This is all theoretical and there is no assurance you will hit this numbers.
Some men will take less than 15 minutes to recharge which means they can ejaculate at least 3-4 times in one hour.
You will also find that there are men who orgasm without ejaculating. They can reach peak without nutting. You see, the issue here is not achieving an orgasm, it is ejaculating as it requires more time to recharge. This means that you can achieve 2 or more successive orgasms without ejaculation.
Physically speaking, you can have multiple orgasm if only the two organs controlling everything were to allow it – the penis and the brain.
Simple biology explains that semen comes from the testicles. And unlike your penis, testicles do not require any recovery time.
Your testicles produce approximately 1500 sperms every second, which means that each time you ejaculate there is more semen in the sack.
However, your body is not able to keep unloading due to the penis, which has to undergo a refractory period. During this refractory period, your penis experiences some dramatic changes.
Every time you ejaculate, your penis sends messages to your brain that it doesn’t need the increased blood supply.
This message is likely to overwrite any neurotransmitters in your brain trying to register that you would like to keep going. The brain redistributes the blood keeping you hard to other parts of your body.
To regain your erection, you need to arouse your penis all over again.
Younger men will need only a few minutes to get back up, but as they age the period increases to 30 minutes.
Older men in their 70s will require up to 24 hours to ‘recharge’.
When aroused, the brain releases dopamine – a hormone responsible for the initial wave of pleasure.
However, the moment you ejaculate, that desire rapidly subsides as the brain releases more hormones that counteract the effects of dopamine.
The first hormone to be released after ejaculation is serotonin, it’s the hormone that triggers the lazy-high feeling that you experience immediately after you ejaculate.
Serotonin is followed by oxytocin, which brings about the need to lie on the bed even when you want to continue.
When these two are combined, the next mood you will experience is likely to be related to sleep as opposed to sex. This is why most men ejaculate and immediately gravitate towards sleep. It’s not because they want to, it’s just the way it is.
Is it possible for a man to keep going?
Yes, it is possible to experience more than one orgasm. However, most men experience what is called a ‘terminal orgasm’.
What this means is that immediately you ejaculate you get the feeling that you are done for the day.
But it doesn’t have to be this way, with constant practice you can learn to extend pleasure and control your orgasms.
The idea is to separate the ejaculation from the orgasm, such that you don’t have to cum every time you orgasm. This, however, is no small feat.
The trick is to understand your ‘pleasure scale.’ If you can master the trick of reaching peak without ejaculating, but still experience the same mind-blowing waves of pleasure, you will have conquered your pleasure scale.
Does ejaculating too much cause harm to the body?
No, ejaculation is a natural process and should not cause any harm to your body.
However, repeated stimulation and ejaculation in a single day could result to the skin on your penis feeling sore.
If you are masturbating, it’s recommended that you use a lot of lubrication. If it’s sex, make sure your partner is well lubricated.
Don’t let the numbers dictate your sex life
It doesn’t matter how times you can come in an hour.
A lot of things you see in porn are not actually true. So don’t try to replicate what you see in the porn industry.
The films have been edited after shooting for several hours or even days. If you can’t ejaculate 3 times like you see in a porn video, it’s alright.
Try to focus on delivering quality strokes rather than quantity. Sex is about satisfying both you and your partner’s needs. If you can do that by ejaculating only once per hour then do it.
