If you climax during sex or masturbation but don't produce any sperm , you might be concerned that something is amiss. However, men can sometimes have an orgasm without ejaculating, also known as orgasmic anejaculation, and it is usually nothing to worry about. GP Dr Roger Henderson looks at the common causes for dry orgasms and when you should be concerned:. A dry orgasm is what happens when a man reaches a sexual climax but does not ejaculate, so no fluid emerges from the penis. It is also sometimes known as orgasmic anejaculation and some men get worried by this if they think it is due to a prostate problem. Although dry orgasms can indeed be caused by some treatments for prostatic disease, this only occurs in middle-aged and older men as a phenomenon called retrograde ejaculation. It's easy to assume that a dry climax means a woman cannot get pregnant, but this is an assumption as there can easily be some sperm around, even if there's no visible fluid. Dry orgasms are not linked to fertility since after a day or so your testicles and your other sex glands will have made more seminal fluid. The reason why dry climaxes occur so frequently in teenagers and younger adults is quite simple and harmless.
