In specialized adult movies and online video entertainment, that moment of orgasm is easy to spot. This is the brief period of time in which the penis turns into a virtual fountain of semen. While the vast majority of real-life orgasms might look a lot like this, there are occasions when they come with no spray of fluid. While they may go unnoticed during sex with a partner, unless a man is using a condom, they are quite obvious during a solo session. These so-called dry orgasms, also known as retrograde ejaculation can be scary, and some important information about penis health is required to help men better understand the problem. Here are some of the reasons that a dry ejaculation may occur.

1. A Question of Use

Adventurous men who develop dry orgasms from time to time mainly do so when they've been remarkably lucky. They may have had sex two, three or even four times in the same night, and they may have reached a climax each and every time.

Rampant sex like this puts a great deal of strain on the testicles’ ability to produce seminal fluid, and sometimes, they just can't keep up with the amount of sex a guy is lucky enough to have. When the supply runs out, the orgasm is dry, and it stays dry until the equipment has had a little time to do recuperate.

2. Plumbing Problems

Older men can also have rabbit-like sex that can dry out the pipes, but as men age, they also may find themselves dealing with penile health problems commonly seen in middle age and beyond. For example, men who are a little older might go under the knife for:

  • Prostate enlargement
  • Prostate cancer
  • Testicle cancer
  • Infertility

Surgeons are overall quite good at their jobs, but they can also make mistakes, and the surgery may occasionally damage the tubing, resulting in semen being redirected to the bladder, rather than exiting the urethra during an orgasm. Furthermore, these conditions themselves may affect the direction of an ejaculation.

3. Other Issues

Aside from overuse or tissue damage relating to a health problem, some men may experience dry orgasm from the time they begin experimenting with masturbation. Congenital defects or injury to the private area may cause semen to be directed into the bladder, rather than ejected from the body. Men who have dry orgasms may notice that their urine is cloudy following an ejaculation, indicating the presence of semen.

Measuring the Severity

Men who only experience dryness at the end of marathon sex sessions generally have little to worry about. Their equipment works just fine most of the time, and when they're careful to give things a rest, they're capable of delivering the goods with ease.

In any event, the dry ejaculation itself is not harmful, and not generally a cause for concern unless a man is planning on having children. Men with congenital or health problems, however, may have concerns about fertility. In this case, consultation with a specialist is generally required; a qualified urologist will be able to offer treatment options to reverse the problem and restore fertility.

Day-to-Day Penis Care

Paying attention to overall penis health through appropriate personal care will not affect issues like dry ejaculation, but it is important to care for the equipment properly on a daily basis. A penis health crème can help. An intimate lotion (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) contains elements that smooth, soften and strengthen the penile tissue, leaving it resilient and responsive. A cream that is enriched with vitamins, antioxidants and quality emollients may help to maintain a more youthful penis.
