While nearly all men have experienced a penile orgasm, there are many who've never experimented with prostate massage and stimulation and thus, have never experienced a prostate orgasm. Those who participate in prostate stimulation know that the differences in sensation are enormous. Below are some of the most common differences between the two types of orgasm that are mentioned by men who've had the pleasure of enjoying both.
Prostate Orgasms Are Felt Deeper Than Penile Orgasms
Men who enjoy prostate massage consistently report that the resulting orgasm occurs within a deeper part of the pelvis. While a penile orgasm is felt solely on the tip and shaft of the penis, and occasionally in the testicles, a prostate orgasm begins closer to the rectum. Upon climax, most men report the sensation spreading throughout most or all of the body.
Prostate Orgasms Are Associated With More Contractions Than Penile Orgasms
When a man experiences a penile orgasm, between four and eight contractions occur within the penis. During a prostate orgasm, up to 12 contractions take place within the pelvis. For some men, that's double or even triple the contractions, which usually means double or triple the intensity.
It Takes Longer to Reach Orgasm in the Prostate Than It Does in the Penis
Reaching orgasm in the penis is relatively easy for most men. It takes very little time for most men, provided the right amount of effort is put into it. When stimulating the prostate, it can take much longer to reach orgasm. Many men who are beginners to prostate massage will attest to the fact that orgasm isn't always achieved the first few times. It can take several sessions before you figure out exactly what and how you like your prostate to be stimulated.
Ejaculation Doesn't Always Occur With Prostate Orgasms
Some men do ejaculate with prostate orgasms, in fact, some report ejaculating a lot when they have them. However, that's not always the case. Many men who stimulate their prostate without stimulating the penis simultaneously find that they don't ejaculate during orgasm at all. Those who do often say that their ejaculation from prostate orgasms are large and powerful.
Non-Ejaculatory Prostate Orgasms Have No Refractory Period
There's a short period of time that occurs after a male penile orgasm during which the man is physically unable to achieve a second orgasm. The length of the refractory period depends on a variety of factors, but most notably, it depends on the man's age. While a teenager's may last only a few minutes, a man aged 65 and older may have a refractory period that's as long as a full day. Although there's not much known about why the male refractory period exists, it's thought that it may be related to the release of oxytocin that occurs during orgasm.
While this refractory period occurs in all males after a penile orgasm, it doesn't occur in men who don't ejaculate during prostate orgasm. That means men have the ability to achieve multiple orgasms, which is commonly thought to only be possible for women.
Overall, prostate orgasms are longer, stronger and far more intense than penile orgasms. While both types of orgasms are pleasurable and beneficial for sexual health, only the prostate orgasm is known for being a full-body, out-of-this-world experience.
