Generally, the amount ejaculated can range from 0.1ml to 10ml. In other words, some men eject literally a spot of cum and others up to two teaspoons of “pride and joy”!
While ejaculation itself won’t hurt you, if you have a lot of sex in one day be sure to use enough lubrication so that you don’t rub the skin on your penis raw — that could hurt!
Hyperspermia is a condition in which a man produces a larger than normal volume of semen. Semen is the fluid a man ejaculates during orgasm. It contains sperm, along with fluid from the prostate gland. This condition is the opposite of hypospermia, which is when a man produces less semen than usual.
A 2018 analysis of multiple studies by Chinese researchers found that moderate ejaculation of around 2 to 4 times a week was associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer — but that the risk did not decline by ejaculating more often than that.
Men usually produce the most semen when they’re in their early thirties. The amount tends to decrease as a man gets older. Heredity, diet, smoking status, and overall health can also affect semen volume. Some men ejaculate more if they haven’t had sex for a few days.
Your testicles are constantly producing new sperm in spermatogenesis. The full process takes about 64 days. During spermatogenesis, your testicles make several million sperm per day — about 1,500 per second. By the end of a full sperm production cycle, you can regenerate up to 8 billion sperm.
Planning not to ejaculate for a while? That’s fine! Avoiding ejaculation isn’t unhealthy. Despite what the research suggests, there’s very little evidence that ejaculating a lot helps prevent prostate cancer.
There are both psychological and biological reasons for premature ejaculation. The psychological causes include: Early sexual experiences that establish a pattern in which sex is linked to excitement, anxiety, and a demand to perform quickly for fear of being caught.
