Ladies have been wondering ever since the dawn of creation this particular detail about their partners. “How are they feeling” or “How is it for them?” are common questions which with they are confronted with, but luckily we can get pretty close to describing the sensation; well, more or less.
What’s happening inside the male anatomy
For women to best understand this, we will share a statement of one of our editorial colleagues. Here’s how sex feels like for a man-
“Ladies, you have to try to imagine your clitoris being engulfed under a hot, searing pressure. Yeah, I think that’s the feeling.”
In rough terms, that’s what it feels for most of us men, but let’s try to delve deeper into the anatomy of the male reproductive system. Unlike women, men have their sexual organs outside of their body, not inside. The penis and testicles are the two parts of the male reproductive system. The penis is composed out of three layers of spongy-like tissue. When a man becomes excited, blood rushes through those spongy tissues, filling it with blood and causing it to be erect.
The head of the penis is heavily innervated, and thus very sensitive to tactile stimuli. The head is covered by a foreskin, which folds twice on itself over it when it is not erect. Most of the American men have their penises circumcised, and because of the fact that the head is more exposed to friction done against underwear, sensibility is gradually lost over time, compared to uncircumcised men who constantly have it protected by the foreskin.
The steps of a man’s sexual experience
It all starts with arousal. The man is aroused by sexual stimuli coming from someone who is interested in him. Blood rushes through his veins and arteries at an astonishing speed and fills in the gaps found in the spongy tissue of his penis.
Before a man reaches orgasm, he first comes to a plateau. This means that his system is preparing himself for the orgasm that is soon to come. This lasts usually between thirty seconds to three minutes, depending on the individual, and is accompanied by involuntary spasms in the groin area, increased heart rate, and pre-ejaculatory liquid release.
When the moment of orgasm comes, this is also split into two phases. The first one is called emission. This means that the body has reached a point of no-turning-back and that it is ready to ejaculate. This is the second part, where muscle contractions occur sending signals of delight and dopamine rushes to the man’s brain.
After the semen has been delivered, the penis will start to turn flask and a period of refraction happens. This period varies between men in age, where younger males have lower periods of refraction than older men do.
Having a foreskin helps
Pleasure derived through sex for men is mostly created by erogenous excitations of their penis during intercourse. Men can feel pleasure in multiple places on their penises. Men who aren’t circumcised and still have their foreskins respond to stimuli with better erections. This is because the foreskin is made out of two separate layers, rich in nerve endings which react instantaneously to touch during the initial phases of stimulation. It is interesting to note that these neural receptors become active only when the foreskin is stretched or rolled over the glans (the sides of the head of the penis).
Besides the receptors responsible for pleasure, foreskin also holds some responsibility for premature ejaculation alert. The Meissner corpuscles, how they’re called, are minuscule receptors that are similar to those found in the tips of our fingers. When a man is on the brink of ejaculating, these minuscule receptors found in the second layer of foreskin alert him.
Testosterone and desire
It has been proven that if a man doesn’t have any sexual drive at all or impulse for engaging in sexual intercourse, he is suffering from clinical low levels of testosterone in his system or underlying mental illness, that is generally listed as being depression.
Emotions play a big part
Emotions play a big factor in the sexual experience that a man is having. Sharing emotions with a beloved partner in sexual intercourse contribute very much in the experience.
