The subject of multiple orgasms in women frequently arises, and many is the man who has felt that he could have even better sex if only he also had that capability. (Of course, many men also generally have an easier time reaching a single orgasm than many women, which definitely is an advantage for guys.) But are multiple orgasms truly something that only women can ever achieve? And what kind of penis care is needed to make them possible?

Research

Why is this subject even being brought up? Well, because back in April of 2016, a paper appeared in the medical journal "Sexual Medicine Reviews" that focuses on this very topic. Entitled "Multiple Orgasms in Men - What We Know So Far," the study in this peer-reviewed journal is what is known as a "literature review" - that is, the scientists look at what papers have already been published on this subject in peer-reviewed journals and synthesize the information available.

Not surprisingly, there has not been a lot of scientific research in the area of male multiple orgasms. The authors of the paper were able to locate only 15 relevant studies for their review.

How common?

Interestingly, however, the studies that exist indicate that, while uncommon, male multiple orgasms may not be quite as rare as one might think. The authors of the study estimate that less than 10% of men in their twenties and less than 7% of men aged 30 or older have ever experienced multiple orgasms.

The researchers identified two kinds of male multiple orgasms:

- Sporadic multi-orgasms, in which a man experienced multiple orgasms that were several minutes apart, and

- Condensed multi-orgasms, in which a man experienced 2-4 orgasms within a period of a few seconds to two minutes.

In most cases, the first orgasm is ejaculatory but the subsequent orgasms are "dry," i.e., not accompanied by ejaculation.

What causes them?

As mentioned, there isn’t a great deal of data, so determining why some men may sometimes be capable of multiple orgasms is difficult if not impossible at this point.

That said, the studies do seem to indicate that a hormone called prolactin may be part of the reason that some men are multi-orgasmic. Prolactin, which is also called luteotropin, comes from the pituitary gland and is more commonly known for the role it plays in enabling female mammals to produce milk. But both sexes produce prolactin, and it turns out that after an orgasm, a man’s prolactin levels typically rise dramatically.

So one theory is that men who have the ability to experience multiple orgasms may produce less prolactin after their first orgasm.

Future studies

Whether prolactin can definitively be determined to play a major role in male multiple orgasms will depend on whether further studies will be conducted. Even if they are conducted and determine a definite link, it may be difficult to develop prolactin treatments that can safely be used simply to provide men with the chance to orgasm multiple times. But if such a therapy becomes available, this may result in some soreness from men who continue to have sex past the initial single orgasm.

Slight soreness, of course, can be dealt with and would be a small price for some men to pay for multiple orgasms and the possibly even better sex that might produce. But whether singly or multiple orgasming, men definitely need to apply a first rare penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) daily to help maintain an adequate level of penis health. Frequent, rough or over-extended sex often results in de-sensitization of the penis, which has a negative effect on orgasmic pleasure. Using a crème with neuroprotective acetyl L carnitine can aid in treating the peripheral nerve damage that causes loss of sensation. The healthy man wants the crème to also contain vitamin C, for its role in collagen production and penile skin elasticity that is useful in erections.
