SexEdNotes   ~   Orgasm


In these Anatomy sections, new terms or the names of new body parts will have Leading Caps to emphasize to the reader their significance. Be sure you know what each term or part is as you read through the material.



In The Male:

  • Erection of the Penis has most likely occurred. However, an Orgasm can occur without an erection in some cases.

  • The Scrotum pulls up tight against the body.

  • The heart rate and respiratory rate increases.

  • Nipples become erect.

  • The face and chest may become blushed.

  • Rhythmic muscular contractions (spasms) of the pelvic muscles force out the Ejaculate. Muscles supporting the Penis flex to the same rhythm.

  • Organs and glands in the pelvic area, especially the Prostate Gland, contract.

  • Ejaculate exits the Urethra at the tip of the Penis (the opening or Meatus).

  • All returns to normal.

  • The body feels a degree of exhaustion and relaxation, and rest or sleep will often be the result.

  • It is normal for some time to pass before the Orgasm can happen again. Some may repeat more quickly than others.

  • The Penis and nipples may return to the flaccid condition soon after the Orgasm, or it may remain erect for some time, even possibly until another Orgasm may be reached.

In The Female:

  • Erection of the Clitoris has most likely occurred.

  • Outer and Inner Labia usually have swollen and become more fleshy and darkened slightly.

  • The deeper end of the Vagina enlarges to form a pool for the collection of Semen.

  • The entry of the Vagina will tighten somewhat to retain the Ejaculate and may offer resistance to the Penis. 

  • The heart rate and respiratory rate increases.

  • The Nipples become erect.

  • The face and chest may become blushed.

  • Rhythmic muscular contractions (spasms) of the pelvic or PC Muscles occur. Muscles supporting the Clitoris flex to the same rhythm.

  • Rhythmic muscular contractions (spasms) occur in the Vagina and the Uterus.

  • The Cervix dips into the pool of Semen in the back of the Vagina during each muscular contraction.

  • Spasms in the Uterus cause a slight suction that helps draw Semen into the organ.

  • All returns to normal, but over a much longer period of time than for the male.

  • It is very possible for a woman to experience a repeat orgasm, and to repeat sooner than it is likely for a male to do so. This would be referred to as a multiple orgasm.

  • The body feels a degree of exhaustion and relaxation. In the past manually stimulated Orgasms were performed by technicians at "Spas" as a treatment for 'Hysteria" to produce relaxation and gratification.

  • The Clitoris and nipples may return to the flaccid condition soon after the Orgasm.

Nocturnal Orgasm

This is experienced by women of all ages, and boys before Puberty. After Puberty begins, boys experience the same thing, but because Puberty is defined by their ability to Ejaculate, it is known as a Wet Dream. The Orgasm is often caused by a sexually stimulating dream, and it has been suggested that it occurs to release built-up sexual tension. It is experienced by more than 80 percent of both sexes and all ages. There is no known method to increase or decrease the frequency of this occurring. Sorry.


In The Male:

Ejaculation is the release of Semen and Sperm. To be clear, 'E - jack - u - late' is the action, and 'E - jack - u - lut' is the fluid that is ejaculated. Same spelling, different pronunciation. The first time it happens is after Puberty starts, usually between the ages of 11 and 15 years. The first time may happen when Nocturnal Emission occurs during sleep.

Ejaculation usually occurs through an erect Penis, but the erection is not always necessary. Ejaculate passes through the Urethra, the same tube in the Penis that carries Urine. The Bladder is closed off to the Urethra by the Prostate Gland and the muscles in the neck of the Bladder. This prevents the Urine from exiting during Coitus (Sexual Intercourse).  The amount of Ejaculate averages about 5 ml or one teaspoon.

Ejaculate contains Sperm and Semen.


  • Are one five-hundredth of an inch long (or 0.002 inches)... too small to be seen with the naked eye. So 62 of them end to end can reach across 1/8".

  • Consist of a head, a mid-section, and a tail, and look very similar to a frog's tadpole stage.

  • Are manufactured in the Testes and they mature for 70 days  in the Epididymis on the back of each Testis.

  • Are the male's sex cell, and each contains a full copy of the male's DNA genetic code.

  • Will number from 160 to 600 million in each Ejaculation. On average, at least ten percent of them can be abnormal. Subsequent ejaculations within 24 hours will contain less than that number.

  • If placed at the entrance of the Vagina, will travel the length of the Vagina in a matter of seconds. Compared to the size of a human, that is a distance of two miles. In SECONDS!

  • Is released from the male Penis and sets upon a voyage through the Vagina, through the Os of the Cervix, the length of the Uterus, the length of the Fallopian Tubes to the waiting Egg.


  • Is manufactured in the male's Seminal Vesicles and Prostate Gland.

  • Is similar to Saliva, but less viscous (thicker) and is white to whitish-yellow in color. It partially firms/jells to keep from being ejected from the Vagina, and after ten minutes or so it liquefies to enable the sperm to begin their travel.

  • Has 30 percent more protein but one-ninth as much sugar or fat as cow's milk, and contains approximately 5 calories per ejaculation.

  • Supports/maintains/feeds the Sperm during the long trip from the interior of the male to the Egg.

  • When exposed to the open air it dries to a film after several hours.

 In The Female:

Most people would say that there is no way a woman can Ejaculate.... that is what men do. However, it is true that some women actually do emit Ejaculate. However it is not the same as what a male will Ejaculate. It occurs at the same time, concurrent with an Orgasm, and may actually go unnoticed by many.

This fluid that is Ejaculated has been tested and determined that it is NOT Urine, not Semen, not Sperm and not Vaginal Fluid. Women have Bartholin's Glands that are on either side of the Vagina, imbedded in the inner surface of the Inner Labia, for the purpose of lubricating the entry of the Penis into the Vagina. That fluid can be of a copious amount at times, and cause what is referred to as a "wet spot" on the bed under their pelvis during sexual activity, but that is not the fluid that is Ejaculated either.

The Ejaculate does, however, have a similar make-up of Prostatic Fluids. We do not think of a woman having a Prostate Gland, so that seems illogical, but something ejects the fluid, at times with enough force to project from the Vulvar area. That would almost require a gland similar to a Prostate Gland or something very similar to it.

Something to consider is that some women have what has been referred to as a "G-Spot". If it exists, and not all women have it, it can be reached a finger's length into the Vagina, on the upper wall. If a man had a vagina, this is the location of the Prostate Gland.

Medical science seems to enjoy arguing what is happening here, but suffice it to say, some women enjoy a deep orgasm when stimulated in the area indicated and they can produce a rather copious amount of fluid during the orgasm. It is believed that the fluid exits small openings just above or surrounding the Urinary Meatus (opening), which are called Skene's Ducts.

Because some women have a G-Spot and Skene's Glands and ejaculate while some do not, one thought is that because men's and women's bodies are so similar and only slightly differentiated... i. e. Penis/Clitoris, Testis/Ovary, Scrotum/Labia, etc., and because we all know some women that are very masculine and some men that are very feminine, it is not too much of a stretch to assume that a woman can have a bit of tissue that reacts as a Prostate Gland.

When a fetus develops, until it reaches the eighth week of gestation in its development, physical examination cannot determine if it is male or female. A DNA test will tell, but on visual inspection there is a growth between the legs that will look exactly the same whether it is male or female. As the fetus matures, that pelvic growth will mature into a Clitoris... or a Penis. Some women will have a Clitoris five times the length of others, and some men will have a Penis one-fifth as long as others... men and women are closer to being the same physically then we may realize.
