To get a sense of the vital role of a healthy, abundant volume of ejaculate in male pleasure, let’s take a look at how male climax works.
Male orgasm happens at the peak of sexual pleasure, when the various muscle groups contract simultaneously: rhythmic contractions of the pubococcygeus muscle (pc muscle) occur along with contractions of the anal sphincter, rectum and perineum, and the ejaculatory ducts and muscles around the penis. The contracting muscles are the key to delivering the load of semen. The first few contractions are intense and close together, occurring at about 0.8-second intervals. As orgasm continues, the contractions diminish in intensity and duration and occur at less frequent intervals.
However, the larger the volume of fluid and sperm that’s available for each orgasm, the more contractions it takes to shoot all of it — and each contraction is stronger and more intense.
That’s why several products have hit the market recently that are specifically designed to increase the volume of ejaculate. Some products emphasize more the man’s ability to impress a partner (and himself) with a larger, more manly load. But one notable exception emphasizes not just the greater pleasure of climaxing with more semen, but the overall benefits to the male reproductive system. That one is one of our top picks among products for the very sexually active male.
The male sexual system is a complex interplay of many different parts; for maximum pleasure, each must be working in top order at the right time. A good quality male supplement should also enhance the function of each of these vital parts of a man’s reproductive system:
- Ejaculatory Ducts:
The path through the seminal glands which semen travels during ejaculation.
The epididymis is a ‘holding pen’ where sperm produced by the seminiferous tubules mature. The sperm wait here until ejaculation.
- Testes, Testicles:
The two testes within the scrotum produce sperm and testosterone. Within each testis is a kilometer (!) of ducts called the seminiferous tubules, the organs which generate sperm.
- Prostate Gland:
Also produces a fluid that makes up the semen. The prostate gland also squeezes shut the urethral duct to the bladder, thus preventing urine from mixing with the semen and disturbing the pH balance required by sperm.
- Seminal Vesicles:
The seminal vesicles produce semen, a fluid that activates and protects the sperm after it has left the penis during ejaculation.
- Vas Deferens:
The ducts leading from the epididymis to the seminal vesicles.
Although “volume” capsules and tablets have the specific purpose of increasing sperm and semen production/amount, we feel it’s important to always consider overall male sexual health with any program you decide to pursue.
For some men, the issue of improved potency and fertility is very important as well. If this is of concern to you, look for a supplement that increases both volume of fluid AND quantity and health of sperm. Your load will be not only bigger, more impressive and more pleasurable, but more potent as well. Again, Semenax scores high across both categories.
The volume tablets may include amino acids (the building blocks of protein) plus herbal concentrates from China, Europe and South America. Look for ingredients that have been proven over decades or even hundreds of years of experience to stimulate sexual activity and increase semen and sperm production in the testis. Some of the listings you’ll see include:
- L-ARGININE HCL
Studies show sperm and semen volume doubles, fertility improves (even among men with low sperm counts or poor sperm motility), and sperm health and activity increase with supplementation.
Researchers find that this amino acids plus zinc increases sperm produced, stimulates testosterone production, and improves semen quality.
- EPIMEDIUM SAGITTATUM
Sometimes called “horny goat weed,” this botanical boosts libido and testosterone levels for greater sperm production.
- ZINC OXIDE
Has been shown to increase number of sperm and sperm motility by 80% to 200% by aiding testosterone synthesis.
This amino acid is found in high concentrations in healthy sperm. Proven to significantly increase the percentage of highly motile sperm.
- CATUABA BARK
Brazilian herb that strengthens the libido, and nourishes the entire male reproductive system.
- PUMPKIN SEED
Supports prostate health and hormonal production.
