Many students learn about the male organ in sex education classes, but these classes fail to teach all the facts about seminal fluid, ejaculation, and semen quality, including whether or not it’s linked to greater sexual pleasure. So, in order to fill in the gaps and pick-up where school left off, here’s an in-depth look at male ejaculation to set the record straight.
It is important to note that when it comes to seminal fluid and male ejaculation that some men and women prefer more, rather than less, as they view this as a sign of virility. However, not everyone is the same, and, of course, sexual preferences and desires vary greatly.
Great sex begins with better understanding, and ends with a mutually rewarding encounter. So, enhancing sexual pleasure should be considered a necessity for a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle, which brings with it contentment and increased desire.
With that being said, it’s time to take a closer look at semen.
What is semen made of?
Semen, also known as seminal fluid, is the whitish colored liquid that is produced when a male ejaculates. This fluid consists of sperm (spermatozoa) and other secretions such as, amino and citric acids, enzymes, fructose, phosphorylcholine, potassium, prostaglandin, and zinc.
It is estimated that there are more than 300 million sperm present in seminal fluid. However, this number can be higher or lower depending on the frequency of male ejaculation, and the time that has elapsed since last ejaculating. It takes some 70 days for sperm to be manufactured by the male body and up to 14 days to then pass through to the male organ.
What is the relationship between semen quality and male pleasure?
Medically speaking, it is not necessary for the male organ to produce seminal fluid in order to achieve an erection or an orgasm. This is attributed to the fact that these responses are controlled by other mechanisms within the body.
However, psychologically speaking, the relationship between semen quality and male pleasure can be significant. Many men and women find the amount of semen produced and its quality a turn-on. In fact, many partners enjoy the sensation that warm seminal fluid brings with ejaculation, and some even like its taste.
The taste of seminal fluid varies from male to male and it is said to be enhanced by eating a diet rich in pineapple and other fruits, as well as celery. It is also suggested that foods such as garlic and onions be avoided, and foods high in sulfur, such as broccoli and asparagus, and too much protein.
What is the average quantity produced when ejaculating?
Most men produce between 3-5 ml of semen when they ejaculate. This fluid will become thick shortly after ejaculation and then will become watery. This is perfectly normal. Of course, the more frequent the male organ ejaculates, the more that quality and amount of seminal fluid is reduced. This is because only 5% of the semen is manufactured in the testicles. The rest is produced in the seminal vesicles (45-80%), prostate gland (12-30%), and the urethral gland (up to 5%).
How to increase the amount of seminal fluid
To increase the amount of seminal fluid produced, it is suggested that plenty of water and a balanced diet be consumed on a regular basis. In addition, the use of a male specific creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil), is recommended, These products can increase sexual pleasure by promoting a healthy male organ since they contain essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that maintain and rejuvenate cells and increase blood flow throughout the male organ.
