Increase Your Semen Volume – It’s Easier Than You Might Think
While the subject of semen may be offensive to some people, plenty of men of all ages have a desire to shoot a bigger load of semen. The reasons are many:
- it feels good – more semen = better orgasms (especially if you learn how to shoot it farther)
- it’s tied to male fertility – although sperm cells are the main factor of male fertility, low semen volume is a known cause of male infertility
- the visual appeal – seeing yourself shoot multiple big ropes of semen looks way cooler than a disappointing dribble
- it’s all about impressing your sex partner(s) – imagine how gratifying it is for your partner to watch you experience an explosive orgasm
- you may have experienced a decrease in your semen – age and other factors can sometimes lead to a decline in semen volume
- it’s a common fetish – cumshot and semen fetishes are some of the more popular sexual fantasies
- it’s empowering – you’ll love the confidence boost that comes with improving your sexual prowess
Who Wants to Increase Their Semen Production? And Why?
You might be surprised to learn how many people are seeking bigger loads of semen. People of all ages – both men and women – have their own reasons for wanting more male ejaculate and are searching out ways to produce more semen and increase male fertility.
The fact is, there are plenty of reasons why men want to ejaculate a bigger load. Each potential benefit draws a different set of men (and/or couples) towards researching how to increase semen output. Some men simply crave more intense orgasms that come with increased semen, while others are looking to improve male fertility and sperm count for the purpose of making a baby. Some men want more pre-cum (also known as pre-ejaculate fluid). Yet another group of people simply enjoy the sexuality of semen and for that group, more is usually better.
Whatever your motivation for wanting more semen, we aren’t here to judge.
All About Semen
First of all let’s clarify what semen is, and where and how it is made. We should also define the difference between sperm and semen. Sperm refers to the actual sperm cells that are swimming in seminal fluid, and make up less than 5% of semen by volume. Semen (or seminal fluid) is the whitish fluid that is ejaculated during a man’s orgasm. Sperm cells are produced in the testes (testicle singular), whereas the bulk of seminal fluid is produced in a few specialized glands found in your lower pelvic region (see link above for more info).
It is important to note that a man seeking to improve his fertility needs to focus not only on the quality of his semen, but also the health, motility, and number of sperm cells he produces.
In terms of semen volume and male fertility, a surprisingly small amount of semen is required to be considered fertile – the World Health Organization has standards set at 1.5mL minimum (roughly a small thimble full!). Typical semen volume range for a healthy male is from about 1.0mL up to 6mL, with 10mL+ reported by a small percentage of the population. For reference a measuring teaspoon is almost exactly 5mL.
The 7 Biggest Factors That Affect Your Semen Load
The amount of semen and the force with which you ejaculate, depends on a variety of factors, including (but not limited to):
- 1. genetics – we are bound by our own genetics and reproductive system’s capacity, but you can find ways to maximize your potential
- 2. age – men over 50 will often experience a decline in semen production, while men in their 20’s and 30’s typically enjoy peak semen production
- 3. nutrition & hydration – to achieve optimum conditions for semen and sperm production, this is one of the most important aspects
- 4. arousal level – this can make a huge difference in semen volume for most men, never underestimate the power of your brain
- 5. time between ejaculations – many men report the optimum time period to maximize their semen volume is 2-3 days, but we’ve heard everything from 1 day to abstaining for very long periods of time (clinical sperm/semen analysis tests usually asks the patient to abstain for 2-7 days before providing a sample)
- 6. your lifestyle decisions (smoker vs non-smoker, stress, BMI, exercise, etc) – much like nutrition/hydration, your overall health is a huge factor in producing healthy semen and sperm
- 7. pc muscle strength – along with a few other muscles, your pubococcygeus (pew-bo-cox-ah-gee-us) muscle is responsible not only for the feeling of your orgasm but also the force with which you ejaculate those spurts of semen
Shoot More, Farther
As we noted earlier, not all men seeking a bigger semen load are looking to boost their fertility. The thought of increasing semen production and shooting a huge cumshot across the room is a big desire for many guys. A percentage of women also love to see their partner enjoy a powerful orgasm with an explosive load. Increasing semen volume and shooting semen farther are two entirely different subjects and should be treated as such.
The quantity of seminal fluid you produce depends on a variety of factors, such as genetics and nutrition. The force with which you release those spurts of semen is mostly dependant on the muscles involved, and the strength of the orgasmic contractions. Learn to train those muscles with Kegel exercises for men and you’ll be able to shoot semen farther (as well as enjoy stronger orgasms).
Declining Semen Volume With Age?
If you are a man in your 40’s or 50’s and beyond, you may have noticed a decline in your semen production. Unfortunately age, like genetics, in terms of semen volume is a factor that is out of our control. As we get older we tend to produce less ejaculate fluid, and many men in this age group are simply looking to restore their potency and ejaculation volume. Luckily most of the info on this site regarding maximizing semen health pertains to all age groups.
Men produce millions of sperm every day of their life, from puberty until death. Semen production typically peaks in the 20’s and 30’s and then slowly begins declining and reaches it’s lowest volume sometime around your 50’s.
Abstinence, Timing, and Technique
They say timing is everything. Although some men are capable of producing a full semen load a mere few hours after an ejaculation, most of us can benefit from waiting a few days and letting our stores build up. This is entirely personal and you’ll need to find your optimum time between ejaculations, but most men report at least one full day is helpful and three days seems to be the popular target for men looking to optimize a big cum load.
Beyond the time between your ejaculations, it really pays to spend some time building up an orgasm. This factor is often overlooked, but almost every man will benefit from extended stimulation. Prolonged foreplay, masturbation, or other sexual activity allows for more time for the male reproductive system to activate and switch into overdrive. Almost all men will find their load much larger with an hour (or more) of stimulation as compared to a “quickie” 5 minutes of stimulation. A popular and efficient technique to maximize your semen volume is to get as close as possible to orgasm without letting go, and then to back off and start all over again. Staying as close as possible to climax without going past the ‘tipping point’ for extended periods of time is known as “edging” and is a very good technique to maximize your loads.
Healthy Lifestyle, Nutrition, and Hydration
This is an area that you have control over, and it can benefit both your semen volume as well as promote healthy sperm production. You need to provide your body with optimum conditions to allow your reproductive system to work efficiently, and avoid consistently putting it under stress. Research has shown that obesity, smoking, excess alcohol, lack of regular exercise, stress, and a poor diet will hinder your reproductive system’s overall health and production.
You should try to drink an adequate quantity of water every day (3 litres or eight 12oz glasses); being hydrated won’t necessarily guarantee a bigger load of cum, but being dehydrated certainly isn’t going to help your cause.
Improving your diet is one of the best places to start for optimal semen and sperm production. Laying off processed food and sugar is a good start. Try to eat a balanced diet of healthy vegetables, fruits, and nutritious proteins from sources such as fish and organic meats. See our page about the best foods for semen and sperm, which also includes some popular misconceptions about foods and semen. Taking a multivitamin designed for men of your age group is probably a good idea for most of us, as no matter how healthy we try to eat we can still be suffering from a deficiency of any number of vitamins and minerals. There are also a number of herbal semen supplements that are formulated specifically to kickstart your reproductive system for increased semen output.
“So What’s Next – Where Do I Focus My Efforts?”
The fact is, your semen and sperm production is dependant on a variety of factors. If you’re looking to shoot bigger semen loads you will need to provide your body with the best environment possible. While genetics and your reproductive system’s capacity will ultimately determine your max load, you have some control over providing optimum conditions for healthy sperm and semen production. Most men have never experienced their absolute biggest load, and are surprised at their capabilities once they maximize their semen potential and finally experience shooting a massive load.
