“Dry Orgasm”.  Male orgasm with no fluid coming out of the penis
Having an orgasm with no sperm or fluid expelling from the penis is called “Dry Orgasm”.

The term “Dry Orgasm” is not well known or commonly talked about although most men may experience it at some point in their life.

Having an orgasm with no sperm or fluid expelling from the penis is called “Dry Orgasm”. This can be quite alarming, causing panic and the fear of an unknown or rare medical condition. When seeking information online many men will stumble upon articles pointing to medical conditions thus elevating the fear and panic. In my private practice as a sex therapist I receive phone calls several times a month from men who have experienced dry orgasm. Generally, a one or even two time experience with dry orgasm is most likely not a medical condition, and will correct itself.

 

For the majority of men, without a medical condition, the most common reasons for “dry orgasm” or no fluid being expelled after orgasm; is that the body may be depleted of seminal fluid... Seminal fluid can take up to five days to completely replenish itself. Vitamins, amino acids, herbal supplements and increased daily fluid intake can all help with this. Another reason can be psychological. Performance anxiety and worry can stop the fluid from releasing. Performance anxiety and the apprehension or fear of releasing can be discussed and treated with a clinical sexologist (sex therapist).
