The male orgasm is a complex experience. The major function of the male orgasm is to ejaculate sperm, although not all men will ejaculate during an orgasm. Beyond delivering pleasure, the role of the female orgasm is less clear, although it may help move the sperm closer toward the ovum egg.
When the blood vessels of the corpora cavernosa relax and open up, blood rushes in through the cavernosus arteries to fill them. The blood then gets trapped under high pressure, creating an erection. Sexual stimulation and friction provide the impulses that are delivered to the spinal cord and into the brain.
The physiology of arousal in the male is elicited in numerous ways. The neurological mechanisms are what we have an interest in for this course. Sensory organs detect anal stimulation, skin stimulation, perineal stimulation as well as friction on the glans penis.

The typical result is ejaculation of fluid that may contain sperm through strong muscle contractions. These fluids nourish and support the sperm so they can live after ejaculation for a limited time. This mixture of fluid and sperm, known as semen, is what is moved through the urethra and out the penis during orgasm.
Ejaculation is the discharge of semen normally containing sperm from the male reproductory tractusually accompanied by orgasm. It is the final stage and natural objective of male sexual stimulationand an essential component of natural conception. In rare cases, ejaculation occurs because of prostatic disease.
Gustavo L. For this purpose, a revision of classic texts and current scientific articles about topics of human sexual response, sexuality and sexology, with emphasis on the ejaculation process is made. The article is structured in sections that show the fundamental aspects concerning ejaculation and some related dimensions or factors: general descriptive aspects, and comprehensive perspectives on the masculine orgasmic experience that include ejaculation, sexual techniques, ejaculatory dysfunctions, orgasm and sexual pleasure.
Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. Estimates vary, but as many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time. As long as it happens infrequently, it's not cause for concern.
Ejaculation in men is a story of sweat and cheers. Nerves, blood vessels, tissues and friction play important roles. Running along the length of the penis are two cavernous like a sponge chambers, called the corpora cavernosa or the erectile tissues, containing a maze of blood vessels consisting of arteries, several veins and nerves.
Orgasm is marked by a feeling of sudden and intense pleasure, an abrupt increase in pulse rate and blood pressureand spasms of the pelvic muscles that cause contractions of the lower vagina in the female and contractions of the urethra and ejaculation by the male. Males and females are physiologically capable of experiencing orgasm from infancy, and children who engage in masturbation or sex play may achieve this sensation. Orgasm can occur while a person is asleep and dreaming, as well as from sexual intercourse or masturbation. Since the male responses are usually more rapidly induced, the male probably achieves orgasms more consistently during intercourse than does the female.
