Conscious Ejaculation – PONR

March 24, 2010

Continuing with a closer look at the experiences you read here, I want to briefly review what happens when men ejaculate in a relaxed mode. In my first regular entry (here) I was illustrating the feelings a man can experience when he reaches and surrenders to the pont-of-no-return. This is a very descriptive, very conscious description of what happens within the sexual plumbings. It is possible to observe yourself when you stay relaxed and approach the PONR carefully. Since the ejaculatory reflex is triggered neurologically you will eventually fall into that reflex, no matter how completely you are relaxed or how much you try to stay relaxed. If you play at the brink of PONR you will experience emissions, even repeatedly. After all you will be there with a clear mind, – quite conscious!

The PONR is the moment when the ejaculatory reflex almost takes off (time delay 2-3 seconds on average). This can´t be willingly altered. Read scientific explanations on how this works:

The neurophysiology of ejaculation is not completely understood. Evidence thus far indicates that the sympathetic nervous system is much more involved in ejaculation. There are two phases of orgasm or ejaculation in the male. The first is the emission phase and that is when the seminal fluid leaves the prostate and there is the contraction of the prostate gland that pushes the seminal fluid, that’s come up from the seminal vesicle, and the prostatic fluid into the posterior urethra. That sensation is the sensation that the man feels when he recognizes that he is about to climax. And when he experiences that sensation he is going to climax and nothing he does physically or mentally is going to stop that.
[This passage refers to the emission (phase). But then in the last sentence (about inevitability) the word „climax“ is not correct, unless in the sense of „seminal release“ (i.e. emission). I am living proof here!]
Ejaculation proper follows the emission phase and is the result of afferent input from the distended posterior urethra filled with seminal fluid reaching the spinal cord and causing a reflex-mediated ejaculatory response. The sense of pleasure usually associated with ejaculation is usually assumed to be a cortical response.
– Vinny Liu and Jerry Lin in Behavioral Science: 4/25/99 –

More science-talk from another source:

Ejaculation may occur with or without an orgasm and/or erection. Both erection and ejaculation are spinal reflexes that are dependent on the removal of supraspinal (cerebral) inhibition for their triggering.

Ejaculation occurs in two phases: seminal emission and propulsatile ejaculation. Seminal emission is the process of sperm transport from the epididymis to the prostatic urethra, followed by closure of the bladder neck, and is under sympathetic control. Promoted by high sexual arousal, this phase has an element of voluntary control by the man. The engorgement of the prostate from vasocongestion of arousal emits pleasant afferent signals leading to preorgasmic sensations. The seminal vesicles and the prostate contribute the bulk of the seminal fluid, and the seminal bolus is delivered to the ejaculatory ducts. With concomitant and intermittent closure of the external sphincter and entrapment of the seminal bolus in the prostatic urethra, increased intraprostatic pressure results. Men recognize this is as a feeling of ‘no return’, or ejaculatory inevitability. This point, assumed previously to be the result of distention of the posterior urethra by the seminal bolus, must have additional afferent triggers, as radical prostatectomy patients can attest. In any case, the second phase of ejaculation, propulsatile ejaculation, is triggered. Propulsatile ejaculation consists of seminal vesicle, prostatic, urethral and pelvic floor muscle contractions that propel the seminal bolus out the end of the urethral meatus with considerable force. This is mediated by both parasympathetic and somatic input, and there is virtually no voluntary control of this phase.

Summary and simply put:

Friction supplied to your favourite areas of your penis stimulates the nerve endings of the smooth muscle lining the male reproductive tract. When stimulation reaches a pre-ordained threshold, it triggers ejaculation. (This threshold differs from man to man, a result of inheritance, culture, taboos, training, etc.)

Ejaculation is a nervous reflex controlled by the spinal cord. It occurs in two parts:

  1. Emission – in which semen moves through the ejaculatory ducts (running through the prostate gland) and into the central tube of the penis – the urethra.
  2. Ejaculation proper – in which semen is propelled out of the urethra by contractions of pelvic muscles.

    I play at the brink of PONR much of the time. It takes experience to control it and sometimes I experience full blown ejaculations but very infrequently. I was surprised last Friday in the afternoon because I was so excited and stroked too hard and fast..

  2. SEO Says:

    Howdy! I simply wish to give a huge thumbs up for the good
    information you have got here on this post.
    I can be coming again to your blog for more soon.

  3. Johnny Says:

    Can anyone teach how to have emission without ejaculation proper?

  4. Johnny Says:

    I mean I want the fluid to come out on its own and without contracting any of the pelvic muscles. So, I want emission but not ejaculation proper…

      Johnny, I assume that you may find answers and more when you read the posts tagged emission on this site (currently 62!). Or did you?

      For making emission to happen you need to garner experience about the sensations when close to PONR. When you are very young this might be “tougher” than when you are older. Because you:
      – need to stay rather relaxed at high states of arousal
      – need to resist the urge to trigger ejaculation
      – need to recognise the exact moment when your fluids are poised to ooze (or have begun to) inside of you.

      Practicing edging with a stop-&-go routine (which requires discipline) is a good way to get there. Once you are successful, you may increasingly be able to trigger emission without a prolonged edging-period, because you better identify the sensations of being close to PONR with the key-moment at which you have to back off, while your semen flows.

      Also be sure to find your best trigger-method; work with that only, so that you can rely on a predictable parameter in your quest. 🙂

        Definitely begin with Stop and Go method and then as you gain experience you ca just slow down and avoid the most sensitive area of your penis but be sure to start with Stop and Go. Mistakes will happen but keep practicing and you can learn exactly how and when to stop. Also use the hand grip method at the base of penis when you feel the urge to ejaculate. Sometimes you need to grip hard for as long as 5 minutes at first but if a mistake happens, oh well!

    Thanks a lot for the advice.

  6. Johnny Says:

    Is the man in this video doing same thing as i described.

    would be extremely thankful if someone could teach that

    • nandisa Says:

      What we see in this clip is indeed an emission followed by an ejaculation. Spritzing, the performer, is one of the greatest ejaculators gone public (with many clips of his skills on display), I also feature him somewhere in my blog. He is able to shoot big volumes of his milk and he often triggers beautiful emissions up front, like the one in this clip!

      Johnny, just follow the guidelines given by festival42 and myself and practice. Another kind of climax, which precedes the skill of the seperation of an emission from the ejaculatory reflex, would be what I call emisjaculation. Read this post to learn more. Being able to perform a “single standing” emission may not appear over night, it will take a while. 😉

      • festival42 Says:

        Another good idea is to count strokes. In the beginning I would start with 150 and now usually go to 1000 or 1200 without slowing down or pausing. All it takes is practice. He can begin with as few strokes as he is comfortable with and then expand the number a few strokes each day. Just another little tip that might help.

    thanks for your advice nandisa and also festival42 has given a great idea. thanks a lot

      The beauty is that this can be a lifelong practice. There is no endpoint to what you can discover. There is only pleasure to be had all along the way discovering more and more about yourself. Have fun!
