Legend has it that the world record for ejaculation distance is 18 feet. Though this tidbit of trivia has yet to be confirmed, there are proven things about the male orgasm that you never knew. Come again? Yup, although the female orgasm has a reputation of being mysterious, so is the male orgasm. This is why people need to educate themselves on the inner mechanics of pleasure. Not only will you be smarter, but you will also enjoy a happy and healthy sex life.
Contrary to popular belief that the male orgasm is a no-brainer — because climaxing is a process that involves physiological, mental, socio-emotional, and medical factors — there's really nothing simple about it. In fact, the male orgasm is just as complex as the female orgasm. According to Psychology Today, men and women experience orgasms similarly. This isn't even news. Research from the 1960s uncovered what's called a "neurological mirror," which, in a nutshell, explains human behavior as a set of shared neurological and biological experiences. Think about how people, regardless of sex, have similar responses to happiness (smiling and laughing) and sadness (frowning and crying). When it comes to climaxing, although the process is a bit more sophisticated, the same principle applies. Cool, right?
In the spirit of getting to know your partner's experience, so you can understand what he and his body are going through when it comes to sex, study up on all the things you might not have known about the male orgasm.
