Male multiple orgasms myths

How it all started

From the first time that Ancient Man looked down at his deflated penis after an enjoyable orgasm he has tried to explain why, with a beautiful woman beside him and very likely still wanting more, he now suddenly wanted sleep more than anything else:

As evidenced from this ancient text and many others like it, since before such ancient times ejaculation (the loss of semen) has been seen as the culprit for the separate and distinct phenomenon that is the Male Refractory Period (MRP).

Ancient Man erroneously yet understandably equated ejaculation and its accompanying loss of semen as the cause for this inexplicable post-orgasmic "weariness." And thus the notion was born of semen as some vital essence or life energy flowing from the brain and down through the spinal column that was then "dissipated" or lost through ejaculation resulting in a decrease in the life force causing the man to need rest and sleep to recuperate.

This further seemed supported by the similarity in appearance between semen and the fluids found in the brain and spinal column (fluids sure to have been seen often during the bloody conflicts of that age) as well as the rudimentary understanding of semen as the seed from which new life is created.

The myth

Thus began the well-documented, yet erroneous, Taoist notion that semen contains some vital life essence of man which must be retained and used very sparingly:

"When a man squanders his semen, he will be sick and if he carelessly exhausts his semen he will die."
—Sun S'su-Mo, Priceless Recipe, circa 700 CE

Inexplicably this patently incorrect idea is still widely disseminated by modern Taoist practitioners and still indirectly supported by an astounding number of modern professional andrologists and physicians, today:

"Men who ejaculate once or more on a daily basis may eventually 'lose their minds', since 20 percent of male semen is composed of cerebrospinal fluid (?!). Frequent ejaculation thus causes a chronic drain of the vital fluids that the brain and spine require to function properly. The resulting deficiency of cerebrospinal fluid can cause such increasingly common conditions as premature senility, inability to concentrate, chronic depression, loss of sexual drive and a host of other related symptoms."

Tantric Teachings Proven Wrong: Frequent Ejaculation Key to Good Health

In complete contradiction to these baseless Tantric superstitions, two modern research studies have recently discovered that frequent ejaculation (at least 5 times per week) significantly reduces the incidence of prostate cancer, the second most common form of cancer in American men, and related prostate difficulties:

  1. Masturbating may protect against prostate cancer
    19:00 16 July 03
    Excerpted from New Scientist Magazine
    "A team in Australia led by Graham Giles of The Cancer Council Victoria in Melbourne ... concludes that the more men ejaculate between the ages of 20 and 50, the less likely they are to develop prostate cancer.
    "The protective effect is greatest while men are in their twenties: those who had ejaculated more than five times per week in their twenties, for instance, were one-third less likely to develop aggressive prostate cancer later in life
    (BJU International, vol 92, p 211)."
  2. Ejaculation Frequency and Subsequent Risk of Prostate Cancer
    Journal of the American Medical Association 2004;291:pp. 1578-1586
    Results: During 222 426 person-years of follow-up, there were 1449 new cases of total prostate cancer, 953 organ-confined cases, and 147 advanced cases of prostate cancer. Most categories of ejaculation frequency were unrelated to risk of prostate cancer. However, high ejaculation frequency was related to decreased risk of total prostate cancer.

Since the invention of the microscope we have known that semen is not at all related to any fluid proceeding from the spine or the brain. Yet despite this, modern Taoists (and the occasional medical professional, as seen above) still cling tenaciously to this ancient flawed and superstitious philosophy regarding the nature and makeup of semen.

As discovered by modern science, semen continually replenishes itself in the normal male physiology. Thus the false Eastern superstitious belief in semen as containing some vital "life essence" is as foolish as the old Western religious notion of semen as "sacred" and thus a "sin" to expend except for the creation of life ("Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great. If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate." - Monty Python, "The Meaning of Life"). It is high time this false Taoist notion of semen and ejaculation be as discredited, if not also equally lampooned, by modern science and Society.

Taoism, Tantricism, and a lot of good ol' fashioned Western Capitalism

While no one can blame Ancient Man for thinking of semen as "cerebrospinal fluid" that somehow, both biologically and metaphysically, embodies a man's "life energy" and "vital essence", it is frankly inexcusable that 4,000 years later so many still refuse to abandon such superstitious attitudes regarding semen and ejaculation. And yet, little has changed in all that time. Today, ejaculation is still regarded as the "Public Enemy #1" of male sexual capacity, just as it has been for millennia.

Anciently, Taoist and Tantric practitioners concluded that since ejaculation seemed to be what caused this post-ejaculatory sexual and physical fatigue -- there must be something inherently evil about ejaculation that is spiritually and physically debilitating to men.  As a result, they developed, preached, and taught the use of ejaculatory-control techniques.

And as ridiculous as it seems, today these same techniques are still the only options men have... apparently thanks to Society's continued belief in these ancient and false superstitions. The only difference is that today these "multiorgasmic" techniques have been generously peppered with unsubstantiated and downright false claims so as to promote the ol' bottom line: profit.

Unlike the many "multiorgasmic" technique books of today, the ancient Taoist texts never claimed that these techniques would enhance male sexual pleasure. The original Oriental authors remained truthful in stating that these techniques were intended to keep men from experiencing ejaculation, and thus the pleasures associated with it. The techniques were seen as a necessary sacrifice of pleasure so as to preserve a man's generative energy, or life force.

It has only been fairly recently that the concept of enhanced pleasure through such techniques has been claimed by those seeking to turn a profit on these techniques. Thus, for more than 4,000 years, men worldwide have been duped into believing that to be multiorgasmic, they must sacrifice full, natural orgasm along with all its attendant pleasures so as to maintain their erections and thus, their "life force" and spiritual energy.

However, and as would be expected, not a shred of scientific evidence exists to support any of these Taoist and Tantric notions regarding ejaculation.

Today, Orgasm just ain't what it used to be

"Orgasm" used to be very clearly defined by legitimate sex research that scientifically studied human sexual physiology, and faithfully recorded, analyzed, and released the results. Today however, almost any sensation can find itself interpreted by some new profiteering "sexpert" as being the same as orgasm. Misleading terms such as "psychic orgasm", "total orgasm", "extended sexual orgasm" (E.S.O.) etc., fill the books, tapes, and courses of these inventive hucksters as they continue to successfully feed off of the public's sexual gullibility.

One book in particular takes this definition-stretching past the realm of incredulity into the truly sublime.  In the "multiorgasmic" book, "The One-Hour Orgasm", the authors simply re-state the concept behind E.S.O., and justify both terms by defining the term "orgasm" as beginning "...when the genital area is feeling better than any other part of the body." (Schwartz & Schwartz, 3rd Ed., p. 2).

By this definition, you are "orgasming" from the moment you begin any sexual stimulation whatsoever, until you decide to stop! Hence, the title of the book, and in essence the necessary mindset needed for E.S.O., as well.  And of course, this book continues to sell like hotcakes.

As long as we show ourselves willing to have our own orgasmic experiences undermined and discredited by the snake-oil sexual terms coined by these "sexperts," they will gladly continue to invent and hawk new definitions of what "orgasm" is, and write new books in support of them, and men (in particular) will continue buying them.

And finally, we arrive at the liberties taken with the term "male multiple orgasm".
In the Sixties, following a decade's worth of research recording thousands of male orgasms, Masters & Johnson correctly and unbiasedly reported that male orgasm naturally includes ejaculation, and thereafter results in a refractory period. Given this scientifically documented fact, the term "male multiple orgasm" becomes a contradiction in terms and a physiological impossibility for males, while this refractory period exists.

So... in the Seventies a sudden re-defining of male orgasm "miraculously" appeared separating ejaculation from the orgasmic experience and finally making possible the successful marketing of "male multiple orgasm" books, courses, articles, etc. By calling these technique-induced, abortive, non-ejaculatory experiences "orgasms," suddenly the term "male multiple orgasm" went from a physiological impossibility to a successful marketing strategy for re-packaging and profiting from 4,000-year-old Taoist ejaculatory-control techniques.

Then, what of male "multiorgasmic" techniques?

All options to the single-orgasm-per-erection scenario are of value to men, and to their sex partners. It is not the purpose or intent of this site to discredit or invalidate the techniques and procedures granting men greater sexual variety and capability within the limits of current male sexual capacity. All men are benefited by exploring their own sexual physiology, and in learning to gain control over it. However, it must be acknowledged that all such techniques do in fact interrupt and interfere with orgasm and its full pleasures. And thus, through such techniques, men are capable only of mimicking, rather than experiencing, the actual multiorgasmic response resulting from the natural uninterrupted orgasms of female sexual capacity.

It is the purpose of this site to speak candidly and truthfully regarding the currently held attitudes and beliefs regarding male orgasmic capacity, as well as their departures from scientific fact. And to provide men the first empirical evidence that the Male Refractory Period is not the impenetrable sexual barrier that all of science has previously claimed.

With that said, here then are the two essential Truths regarding male orgasm...

TRUTH #1: Despite Tantric Superstition, Ejaculation the Key to Pleasure and Good Health!
While "sexperts" continually attempt to discredit the findings of Masters & Johnson on this one, the indisputable fact remains that (as Masters & Johnson observed in tens of thousands of male orgasms) unless a man does something on purpose at orgasm to stop ejaculation, he's going to ejaculate.

Ejaculation is thus an inherent, natural, and pleasurable part of male orgasm. This is additionally supported in the following:

"The most characteristic physical feature of orgasm is the sensation produced by the simultaneous rhythmic contractions of the pubococcygeus muscle (pc muscle). Along with contractions of the anal sphincter, rectum and perineum... and the ejaculatory ducts and muscles around the penis for men, this constitutes the reflex of orgasm. The first few contractions are intense and close together, occurring at about 0.8-second intervals. As orgasm continues, the contractions diminish in intensity and duration and occur at less frequent intervals." (http://www.bettersex.com/sd-Orgasm.aspx)

There can be no doubt that the "simultaneous rhythmic contractions" "occurring at about 0.8-second intervals" of the "ejaculatory ducts and muscles around the penis" "constitut(ing) the reflex of orgasm" can only be describing the natural, uninterrupted ejaculatory contractions which, as stated above, constitutes the "sensation" that is described as the "most characteristic physical feature of orgasm". This "sensation" cannot by definition given be experienced without these contractions. Therefore, neither can orgasm be accurately defined without them.

And why not? the ejaculatory contractions feel great! They're supposed to! And, believe it or not, women also experience these same pleasurable contractions following the first rush of orgasm. Which is why you don't find women running out looking for books that teach how to stop them. Of course, who would write such a book? Unlike men, women aren't gullible enough to believe that orgasm is stronger without these wonderful contractions.

Thus while arguably two separate processes physiologically, yet ejaculation is as inherently a part of male orgasm as, say, swallowing is to eating. And while our throats have no taste buds, yet imagine how less pleasurable eating would be if you felt you had to spit out your food after enjoying its flavors. Imagine the effort it would take to remind yourself not to swallow with each bite, and how much this conscious effort would interfere with and limit your capacity to enjoy the food you are tasting.  Could you eventually get used to it? Yes, I imagine so. However, it would still never be the sameeffortless experience of sensual delight that it once was.

This is in essence exactly what all other "male multiple orgasm" studies, books, and websites advocate: stopping these highly pleasurable ejaculatory contractions and thus, in effect, aborting male orgasm.

Frequent Ejaculation Key to Good Health!!!

Contrary to the claims of Tantricism that ejaculation is detrimental to a man's health, science has recently proved that frequent ejaculation helps prevent prostate problems and prostate cancer, the second most common form of cancer mortality in U.S. men:

"The new study, published in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association, was based on an ongoing survey covering a variety of health issues of thousands of men who were 40 to 75 when the study began in 1986. In 1992 they were asked to report the average number of ejaculations they had per month during ages 20 to 29, 40 to 49 and during the previous year. In later surveys they were asked to report if they had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The earlier Australian study published in July 2003 by the Cancer Council Victoria found that the more often men ejaculated between the ages of 20 and 50, the less likely they were to suffer from prostate cancer.

That survey, which covered 1,079 prostate cancer patients and 1,259 healthy men, found that those who had sex at least once a day in their 20s were a third less likely to develop the malady. “The more you flush the ducts out, the less there is to hang around and damage the cells that line them,” Graham Giles, lead author of the earlier study said at the time.

Leitzmann said his new study is consistent with the Australian findings, and may even be stronger because it tracked men over time rather than asking them to recall ejaculation frequency only after they had already been diagnosed with cancer. "

TRUTH #2: Unlike the notions of Taoism and Tantricism, It is the Male Refractory Period {MRP} that is the true enemy of male sexual response, not ejaculation.

Over 33% of all men suffer from what is called "Premature Ejaculation." Which means that over 1/3 of all men can't keep from orgasming long enough to satisfy their partners. However, it's not the orgasming that is the problem, nor the ejaculation that accompanies it; the problem is the MRP that follows ejaculation.

Were men capable of retaining their erections following ejaculation, it would not matter how soon after penetration they experienced orgasm and ejaculated, they would be able to keep right on going (er... cumming) to the benefit of themselves and their partners.

Thus, it is MRP that we should be villifying and attempting to eradicate through research, not ejaculation through pleasure-robbing techniques.
