Dear Bearded Confidant,

Is it possible for man to experience an orgasm without spitting out semen?  I'm 64 years old and occasionally during sex I feel that I've had a fabulous orgasm but there is no semen.  Is this an age thing?

Dear High,

Indeed, orgasm can occur without ejaculation, and it's not just an age thing. A man's "sexual organs" are no more or less sexual than any other part of his body, and erotic pleasure anywhere on the body can culminate in a non-ejaculatory orgasm. Even a flaccid penis, properly stimulated, can trigger a dry orgasm. And there's great benefit in that — cumming without cum makes it much easier to experience multiple orgasms. Your refined erotic nature has to do with age only in the sense that your years of sexual experience have paid off. Enjoy!
