All You Need to Know About Male Orgasms

Often times we women assume men have it all down pact in the sex department. It seems they're always turned on and could go for another romp. Life is pretty sweet as far as we can see. In reality, sex isn't always a walk in the park for them. Male orgasms can actually get really tricky. Not sure what we mean? Here's what you need to know...

The male orgasm may be easier to reach than the female orgasm, but according to a recent survey, 29% of men have sometimes ejaculated without feeling pleasure and 18% have even faked an orgasm. That's right, lovely ladies. We aren't the only ones faking the Big O.

So what else have you been clueless about? Probably A LOT.

What is a male orgasm?

This probably seems totally elementary. We all know what it is, right? It's a horrifying sex face coupled with mind-numbing man pleasure. But what about the science of it all? What's the scoop on that?

Well, it turns out that when intense sexual stimulation leads to ejaculation, a nerve influx towards the genital organs provokes contractions at the prostate (the canals that transport sperm) and the pelvic muscles, the thighs and the base of the penis.

While all of that is going down, your man's heart-beat and breathing will noticeably accelerate and his blood pressure will increase. During this time he experiences intense pleasure which (sadly) only lasts a few seconds. This is when he releases sperm that rises up his penis in the ultimate climax (ejaculation)!

How can you improve orgasm?

Naturally, masturbation can lead to orgasm via ejaculation, but during sex the arousal is usually much stronger and the pleasure is generally more intense.

Also, even though pleasure can be easy to achieve, with practice men can learn to delay their orgasm and 'come' more intensely. His delayed orgasm can also work wonders for you, too! If you know what we mean...

The first one isn't always the biggest one

When a guy experiences multiple orgasms, the second or third can sometimes be more pleasurable than the first. So here's added incentive to go for more rounds per sex sesh. Knock yourself out!

Why it's sometimes difficult to climax

Problems with orgasms can be down to physiological reasons (age or illness) or psychological reasons (depression, lack of self-confidence, anger, anxiety, guilt, boredom, fear of not being able to come,etc).

A man's ability to orgasm can also be affected by alcohol, anti-depressants and anti-psychotics. A lack of desire and insufficient arousal can also cause difficulty reaching orgasm.

If your man is having trouble climaxing, you might want to examine his lifestyle and see if there are any underlying issues that are making him uncomfortable or possibly ill.

An appointment with the GP is definitely a good idea - they will be able to advise on the best next steps to take.
