Sexual Health Q&A

Should men be concerned about semen volume?

Many men worry that the amount of semen they ejaculate reflects on their masculinity. Some feel that if they ejaculate more semen, they will feel greater sexual pleasure, too.

However, semen volume is individual. Some men ejaculate more than others. This does not make them more of a man. Pleasurable touching and bonding with a partner can lead to great satisfaction, regardless of how much semen a man ejaculates.

Also, if a man watches pornography, he should know that the amount of semen actors produce is generally not the norm.

Men who are concerned about their semen volume should talk to their doctor.
