Ejaculation and Orgasm two parts of one whole

By Dr. Edward R. Rosic

Most men (and most women), if asked what the difference is between male orgasm and ejaculation, would probably say they're the same thing. After all, for the vast majority of men, the one doesn't occur without the other. Yet the surprising fact is that ejaculation and having an orgasm are two different things, and they do not necessarily go together. Ejaculation the release of semen is a purely reflexive action. Men who have suffered severe spinal cord injuries that left them in wheelchairs can ejaculate without having an orgasm; in fact, they can ejaculate without having any sensations at all. Orgasm that overwhelming sensation to which no words can do justice is associated with rhythmic contractions of the pubococcygeal muscles, located in the pelvis, and represents the sudden release of accumulated sexual energy and tension.

In Western culture, an orgasm with ejaculation is generally seen as the culmination of sex. In many Far Eastern cultures, however, it has long been known (and taught) that orgasm and ejaculation are not one and the same thing. Men who learn to separate the two are able to have multiple orgasms throughout their lovemaking activities while maintaining a firm erection. While this might strike some as New Age nonsense, the noted sex researchers Alfred Kinsey, William Masters, and Virginia Johnson all came to realize that ejaculation and orgasm are indeed two separate parts of one pleasurable whole.
