Where a man goes to be understood, recognized and worshiped.
Understanding the Male Climax
By Alison Leigh, MFT
He might be soft, but he is not furry. He might be shy, but he knows how to come out. He might be gentle, long and hard, but before you go judging, he might just surprise you. Do you want to understand your man? Well, here are some facts that may give you the impetus to give him a little more love.
Men achieve orgasm through a series of steps involving a number of organs, hormones, blood vessels, and nerves working together. The end result is ejaculation of sperm through strong muscle contractions. The fuel for the process leading to orgasm is testosterone, a hormone produced in steady supply by the testicles. The testicles also make millions of sperm each day, which mature and then are mixed with whitish, protein-rich fluids. 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.
The testosterone flowing through a man’s body, along with psychological factors, determines the strength of his desire for sex. This sexual desire, or libido, is key in kicking off the process that will lead to orgasm.
