Disclaimer: This *is* a serious question. I am not posting this to rile anyone up, or try and sound funny.

Mr Cynical showed me a clip of a guy masturbating. When he orgasmed, it looked like total there was at least half of a cup of semen. Now, we were wondering how is this possible, since the normal amount is about a teaspoon full (or 3cc's as a friends discovered). What was different about this guy is, his scrotum was quite large, at least the size of a baseball, and his orgasm lasted for about 30 seconds (it seemed to come in waves). Did he do something, or is it just genetic? Or possibly a disease or syndrome? Answers from the medical community welcome.

I would like to add that I was as confounded as the next guy. I ran across the clip at work, and had to show it to someone to affirm my disbelief, if you will.

No, I've seen it. I am positive it wasn't video editing. My original thought was that he reverse catheterized a whole bunch of pseudojism into his dude, then took off.

But then I thought of the ramifications of reverse catheterizing into your seminiferous vesicles and all the assorted anatomy.

Now, I just think the dude is one of those people on the scale of possibility- severely skewed on the semen squirting scale

Have you ever seen a Peter North porno movie?

They don't call him the decorator for nothing! Man can that guy sling some jizz!

I have seen Peter North movies, and that guy comes like an elephant on coke. The strange thing is that he comes for something like 8 or even more contractions (which cause the spurts) whereas most people run out of fluid much earlier. It is pretty impressive, maybe you saw that?

Where is the video?

Well, i was starting to feel a little embarassed for posting the question 'til I read the replies . Anyway, naturally i didn't post the link because that's a huge no no. But, if you send an email to my account, i'll send you the link post haste. Note: Easily grossed out people may not want to ask. But, it is actually pretty amazing to watch.

If the gentlemen are done giggling over the dirty movie, it's time to crank up the search engine.
Is there anything I can do to increase the amount of semen I ejaculate?
Quote:
Not really...
...most men ejaculate less than three tablespoonsful. The single biggest factor in quantity is the period of time since last ejaculation...

The bulk of semen is comprised of secretion from the prostate gland...

About the only other thing that has any influence on the volume of your semen is how much stimulation you get before having an orgasm. If you prolong it (and include things like prostate massage), you might see an increase in volume.

But genetics also seem to play a large role.
http://www.ash.or.th/news/ACSHstudy.htm
Quote:
Depending on the quantity smoked, smokers ejaculate a decreased volume of semen (with heavier smokers more likely to experience this side effect). Some researchers speculate that this decrease may be caused by nicotine's effect on the nervous system. Smoking may impair the nerves that control the body's ability to ejaculate, thereby causing the decreased volume.6

There is at least one other mechanism by which ejaculate volume is decreased: Decreased testosterone levels can cause decreased stimulation of the seminal vesicles and result in lower ejaculate volume. While the ejaculate volume per se has little to do with reproductive capacity, it may reflect other abnormalities that can complicate reproduction.
So maybe this guy was just born with big testicles and a high testosterone level and an overly enthusiastic semen-producing facility, and he didn't smoke, and he went a long time between ejaculations, and he had the services of a beautiful female to perform prostate massage on him beforehand.

BTW, there were 2,610 Google hits for "amount ejaculate increase". Get a life, guys.

For the Peter North crowd, the guy has a gift, but he's nothing compared to the dude in that horrifying video. We're talking a quarter cup, at least. Maybe a half cup. *gag*

Oopsie. You are correct. When I stated "tablespoons" what I meant to say was "teaspoons." Damn spell-checkers! :)

Mr Cynical, since this would contradict an assertion of the master, I feel duty bound to expose the fraud.
How large is the video? If it is under about 4 and a half megs, you can use kyberneticist@yahoo.com

If it is larger, e-mail me there and I will give you a private address or ftp space.

The answer to this is quite simple, folks. It's called special effects.

The object of the special effect is to make the audience go "Wow!" and I'd guess this one's done its job.

The mechanics of this particular special effect involve little more than some type of concealed bladder (e.g., a balloon) connected to some type of conduit (e.g., a length of rubber tubing). This is pretty old had in this particular genre, and has variations such as women who generate the product and men with dual organs, both of which function.

The dead giveaway is the oversized scrotum. Ejaculate is not stored where it is made. Therefore, there is no real valid connection between scrotum/testicle size and ejaculate volume.

Sorry to be the only one interested in fighting ignorance.

It's definitely not a special effect. I have seen another movie of this guy, in that one he blew the same amount of semen out of his penis...and his scrotum was in full sight.
I just thought was it very amusing.

Okay, unless the dude has a prince albert, I have to insist you are full of shit. The semen comes directly from his urethral opening, it is almost certainly not a fake dick, and unless Stan Winston has gone total pervo, that's not puppeteering.

The dead giveaway is the oversized scrotum? So dude's got big balls. I think you are forcing the conclusion.

but I could be wrong.

The answer

I learned this during a urology elective. It's true that it is impossible to produce the above quoted volume of semen. However, and most folks don't appreciate this, the penis has an enormous capacity for taking up semen (or any viscous fluid) as long as the stream is properly directed.

So the way the video is shot, there is a small pumping system in the cup. This fires sucessive streams of pseudo-jiz at the guys urethral opening. The jiz is taken up by the penis (all of it assuming the stream is accurately directed). Then all you need to do to produce the effect of ejaculation is to run the film backwards.

This "induced retrograde ejaculation" actually works and in fact, is the method of choice to deliver local chemotherapuetics for urethral carcinoma

Huh? Cup? What are you talking about? If you're saying there was a cup in the film, nope, there wasnt. He was sitting on a floor, with his legs spread open. It's not directed anywhere, the semen was going all over the place (his stomach, onto his hand, up and onto the floor...)

FWIW, high ejaculate volumes have been identified in some patients seen by infertility doctors. Here's a referance:

Andrologia 1990 Nov-Dec;22(6):497-501 High ejaculate volume: a distinct entity?
Duyck F, Steeno O

Here's an exerpt:

Quote:
In this study clinical, andrological and endocrinological data of a group of 101 patients with ejaculate volume of at least 8.0 ml are
compared with data of 100 consecutive patients attending our infertility clinic. Within both groups correlations between different parameters are observed. Between both groups a significant difference in total sperm output is noted suggesting a 'dilution oligozoospermia' in the high ejaculate volume group. We suggest that, in order to avoid a falsely unfavourable fertility prognosis for
those patients, total sperm output should be considered rather than sperm density. From the point of view of nomenclature, the term 'relative oligozoospermia' seems justified in cases with very high ejaculate volumes.

re

I don't know if I'd give porn directors (or actors) the credit assuming they are smart enough to pull off any special effects too complicated. But I have seen the guy with two schlongs and was fooled so you never know. But I saw this video and was shocked. It appears to be the real deal. It looks as if he's doing some severe stomach compression, seemingly forcing the stuff out at will. I found that odd. As well as the hugeness of the sackage. But if this guy is so talented, despite being hung like a field mouse, he should be a huge porn star, don't you think? And if this, um, talent was appreciated by the ladies, why would he be sitting alone on a kitchen floor? Despite all, I have to say this is the coolest thing I've seen all millenium.

Um, I'm going to have to see a cite for this. I suspect that my leg is being pulled. A penis is designed to squirt stuff out, not suck it up like an elephant's trunk.

Here's a website for urethral carcinoma. I don't see any mention of squirting chemotherapy up the patient's penis. I believe the chemo that's mentioned, fluorouracil-mitomycin, is delivered intravenously. Interstitial radiation therapy, also called "seed implantation, means putting the little pellets in, like for prostate cancer.
http://www.intouchlive.com/journals/oncology/o9911b.htm
Quote:
Treatment

Surgery—...Local excision, fulguration, or transurethral resection are considered for patients who have low-grade, low-stage, preferably solitary lesions.[25]

Partial penectomy...

Patients who are not candidates for partial penectomy because of the location or size of disease are treated with radical penectomy, with or without en bloc resection of the scrotum and anterior pubis and cystoprostatectomy.

Radiation Therapy—...a combined course of external-beam and interstitial radiation therapy.

Chemoradiation—Similar to the situation in squamous cell carcinoma of the female urethra, case reports have shown the efficacy of fluorouracil, mitomycin and external-beam radiation for squamous cell carcinoma of the male urethra.
So they can cut it off or they can treat it with IV drugs and radiation, but I don't see anything about "induced retrograde ejaculation". Cite, please.

Well now I must see it also--- medtech@usunwired.net

Someone else mentioned Peter Norths 8 orgasmic contractive spurts. Is this normal? Do most guys just do 1-2 spurts?

Also, it dosent seem that unusual that some people could produce a large volume ejaculate.

After reading this thread I can't help but think of the Daily Show clip where the female reporter went to a hog semen farm in Iowa. They had a plastic bag full!

Sorry DDG,

It was just a joke. I would have posted a disclaimer right after, but since Doobieous called my bluff about 2 minutes after I posted, and I posted right after that basically saying, "you got me" I didn't think there would bee a need.
Good research as always.

Okay, so I went to Hawaii & had to use a Webtv thing to type messages, at least I could read the board. Which explains that one message above. I also got leid by three women at the same time, so nyah. At least when I say it, it sounds like 'laid'.

Anyway back to this silly waste of time OP, as if it was the only thing in the world people should be concerned about, the guy has a condom with fake come in it up his butt & the tube is attached to his pee tube (I don't know how that is yet, but its possible, shucks, if you can stick a ring thru your penis, you can do that). To produce this ejaculation, he just squeezes his butt cheeks together forcing the condom to shoot the fake come & the condom can hold about a half cup or more.

But (sorry about the pun) come on guys can't we find something more serious to discuss?
