The male climax is a complex experience. The major function of the male climax is to release sperm, though not all men release with climax. The female climax function beyond pleasure is less clear, although it may help to move the sperm toward the ovum (egg).
In the 1950s, Alfred Kinsey, the first scientist to study human se*uality in any detail, described the climax as “an explosive discharge of neuromuscular tension!” Though there a good amount of research on the male climax has been conducted in the intervening years, there is still much we don’t know or understand.
Release and the Male climax
As noted above, it is possible to have a male climax without Release. Pre-adolescent boys, in particular, can often experience an climax without Release. There are other men who do not release until several seconds after climax. Some men are incapable of Release, though they are still able to climax, and other men purposefully develop the ability to feel intense pleasure without that final, grand explosion. And though multiple orgasms can be difficult for men (while for women they are far more attainable), some men may experience several ejaculations in a row while others may have multiple orgasms without any release at all.
Physical Experience of the Male climax
Some men describe a focal experience during climax, feeling it exclusively in the scrotum and in the private part area. Other men report their climax as a sensation that spreads to other parts of the body.
Still others say their orgasms are felt throughout their entire body.
What Happens During the Male climax?
During intercourse, as a man nears climax, his pelvic thrusts become less voluntary and more automatic, and the muscles of the man-hood begin to contract rhythmically in order to eject semen from the urethra.
When an climax begins, heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration all increase. The climax marks the final stage of the arousal response in men.
Some Differences Between Male and Female Orgasms
Although similar in some ways, there are also vast differences between the male and female climax:
The female climax has the effect of sucking sperm toward the egg (the ovum), via the fallopian tubes.
Women can often experience an climax for a longer period of time than a man.
In general, women are more capable of rapidly returning to climax following an initial climax.
But lest you think that women have it made, the following is also true:
women have more difficulty than men in orgasming through intercourse alone; some se*uality professionals recommend practicing “intercourse plus” (intercourse plus clitoral or some other form of stimulation)
women may also take longer to achieve climax
Man or women, it’s not a competition. The best thing about the climax is how darn good it feels.
Release is sometimes felt to be disappointing if it happens “too quickly” or before both s*xual partners desire.
Male Multiple Orgasms
Men report multiple orgasms more than women in the Kinsey report.
While 14% of women reported having multiple orgasms, 15-20% of men did.
