What is climacturia? How can it be managed?

Climacturia, also called orgasm-associated incontinence, occurs when a man leaks urine as he ejaculates. It is a common side effect of radical prostatectomy (surgical removal of the prostate gland).

What are the most common ejaculatory dysfunctions?

As the name suggests, ejaculatory dysfunctions occur when a man has problems ejaculating, even when he is completely aroused. They generally fall into the following six categories:

What is clitorodynia (clitoral pain)?

Clitorodynia is a term for pain in the clitoris. The clitoris is a pleasure organ located in front of a woman’s vagina that contains thousands of nerve endings and can result in orgasm when stimulated. But some women may experience chronic pain in their clitoris during sexual stimulation and even during daily activities.

What is gender reassignment surgery?

Gender reassignment surgery, sometimes called sex reassignment surgery, is performed to transition individuals with gender dysphoria to their desired gender.

Can smoking affect a man’s erections?

Smoking can have a huge impact on a man’s erections. In fact, in 2014 the acting U.S. Surgeon General added erectile dysfunction (ED) to the list of conditions that can be caused by smoking.

Research has shown that men who smoke are at higher risk for ED. Often, erection problems are worse for men who smoke heavily and those who have smoked for a long time. Secondhand smoke may also interfere with erections.

Can increasing caffeine intake help with erectile dysfunction (ED)?

It’s possible that caffeine could help a man’s erections, but more research is needed.

Caffeine is a stimulant found in foods and beverages. Coffee, tea, soda, and energy drinks are common sources.

Past research has found that caffeine may have some health benefits, but its role in erections has been unclear.

What is a penile plethysmograph?

A penile plethysmograph is a device used to measure blood flow to the penis. Because good blood flow to the penis is important for erections, penile plethysmography can be especially helpful for doctors evaluating a man’s erectile function.

What is a hidden/buried penis?

When a man has a hidden or buried penis, the shaft of his penis is tucked inside the skin of his scrotum, abdomen, or thigh. The penis is still a normal size, but only the tip of it is visible. The condition is sometimes called an inconspicuous or concealed penis.

Is there such a thing as female premature orgasm?

Yes, some women do reach orgasm before they wish to, although it is not very common.

The situation is similar to premature ejaculation in men, but has not been as widely studied.

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.
