There are seven different types of male orgasm – how often do you have one?

According to a Lovehoney survey of 1,000 people, the average male orgasm lasts for 8.7 seconds.

This is two seconds shorter than a female orgasm which lasts about 10.9 seconds on average.

Two thirds of men (66%) always have an orgasm when they have penetrative sex.

But did you know a man can have up to seven different orgasms during some sexual fun?

Ahead of National Orgasm Day tomorrow (July 31), Lovehoney sex and relationship expert Annabelle Knight has explained the different types.

1. Ejaculatory or standard orgasm

This is the general type of orgasm that most men experience when they have sex.

When a man is stimulated physically or psychologically, he gets an erection.

Blood flows into the corpora – the spongy tissue running the length of the penis – causing the penis to grow in size and become rigid.

The testicles are drawn up toward the body as the scrotum tightens.

Semen – a mixture of sperm (5%) and fluid (95%) – is forced into the urethra by a series of contractions of the pelvic floor muscles and prostate gland and then leaves the penis in a process called ejaculation.

4. Wet dream

When you orgasm involuntarily while you are sleeping because of a dream, which may or may not be erotic.

Most common in teenage boys but adult men and women can have them, too.

With around 8% of our dreams having some sexual content, wet dreams are more common in adulthood than many people imagine.

5. Pelvic orgasm

These can be achieved by perfecting a practice known as edging.

Edging is an effective way to prolong your performance and have greater control of your orgasm.

If you edge effectively, the orgasm, when it comes, is so much more explosive.

You edge by continuing to masturbate right up to the moment before you are going to come, also known as your PNR, or point of no return.

At this point you stop, let all sexual feeling subside, then start over.

You do this several times before finally letting go. It’s a great way to boost sexual fulfilment for both sexes.

6. Prostate orgasm

The male G-spot is the prostate gland, also known as the P-spot. This pleasurable point is a small walnut-sized gland that is accessed through the anus.

It sits inside the body at the base of the bladder and can be most easily stimulated by a partner with a lubed index finger or P-spot toy.

It is ultra-sensitive and men can orgasm through it being rubbed gently. Prostate stimulators have been developed specifically for prostate pleasure.

7. Dry orgasm

Although we often associate male orgasms with ejaculation, it doesn’t have to be part of the equation for a man to orgasm.

Known as a dry orgasm, a small percentage of men can orgasm without producing any kind of fluid.
