Orgasm For Men
Orgasm can be the greatest resource for your health and wellbeing for the duration of your life span. It is freely available to all. Imagine a world where orgasmic biological ecstasy spontaneously arises effortlessly. This is connection, first of all to Self and then to life and then to others.
Orgasm requires total surrender to the pleasure of your life force, the pleasure of being alive in this physical body. This is beyond sexual preference and relationship choices, with a partner or as an individual experience.
Orgasm can give rise to vitality, fulfillment, energy, satisfaction and connection.
The Physiology of Erection, Ejaculation and Orgasm
How does it all work? There are four stages of arousal a man experiences on the way to erection.
By understanding the complexity of an erection the importance of healthy interaction between your muscles, your nervous system, blood vessels and your psychology and behavior is clear.
The first stage of arousal is when your penis lengthens.
In the second stage your penis begins to swell, and widens.
The third stage it becomes erect and hardens. It still feels quite cool.
The fourth stage is when your penis becomes stiff and hot.
It is in the fourth stage that your testicles draw close to your body in preparation to ejaculate.
The strength and health of the autonomic nervous system plays a key role in your sexual arousal and your erection. Almost all organs are controlled by the autonomic nervous system. It is made up of the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous systems.
The primary erection center is located in the spinal nerves in the sacral region of the spinal cord — part of the parasympathetic nervous system, that creates the relaxation response in the body.
A second reflex center regulating erection is located in the lumbar and lower thoracic region of the spinal cord. This reflex is part of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight response).
The sympathetic and parasympathetic systems regulate the blood flow through the genital arteries into the cavernous tissues and the outflow through veins that is vital to erection and to their resting condition after orgasm. Sexual arousal a fine interplay of both aspects of the autonomic nervous system.
Ejaculation consists of two parts — emission or the contractile phase, and ejaculation, the propulsion phase. Ejaculation of seminal fluid may accompany orgasm and it is a distinct phenomenon.
As orgasm approaches, rhythmic contractions start in the prostate gland, seminal vesicles and the surrounding muscles. Before the start of the orgasm, the two urethral sphincters — one above the prostate where the urethra leaves the urinary bladder, and the other at the bottom of the prostate where the urethra enters the base of the penis — remain closed.
This traps the seminal fluid so that when the prostate and surrounding muscles begin contracting, the pressure in the seminal fluid rises. This is the emission phase of your ejaculation and it is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.
As the pressure of the seminal fluid in the ejaculatory duct and urethral bulb of the prostate increases, you will have the feeling — ejaculation is inevitable.
During the propulsion phase of ejaculation, the outer urethral sphincter opens. Contractions in the shaft of your penis and throughout your whole pelvic area, at 0.8-second intervals, helps the ejaculation of seminal fluid. This is controlled by the parasympathetic nervous system.
Throughout sexual arousal, erection, and orgasm, the inner urethral sphincter remains closed, preventing leakage of urine or retrograde ejaculation.
The sensations of orgasm is created by the rhythmic contraction and pulsation you feel in your penis, prostate and pelvic area. Orgasmic sensation can be experienced throughout the whole body.
Ejaculation and orgasm are two separate physiological events. Ejaculation is the propulsion of seminal fluid.
Orgasm is the peak feelings and sensations, accompanied by an increased heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure.
The sensations you feel can vary in every experience. You may have very little sensation with ejaculation and no orgasmic feeling. You may have a lot of orgasmic sensations whether you ejaculate or not. It is always different. Then there are different types and levels of orgasm.
Today medical science has validated the many benefits of an active sex life. This includes improved circulation, strengthens heart and lungs, reduces stress and tension, boosts immune system, releases endorphins that generate feelings of well-being, higher testosterone levels, stabilizes cardiovascular fitness and neurotransmitter production is increased. Neurotransmitters carry messages between the brain and nervous system, helping your body work and feel better.
Every man, no matter what his age is, can increase his orgasmic capacity with continuous exploration and education. The key is going beyond the tension and friction approach for sensation.
