For the longest time, I used to think these were a lucky case of "it's just me" but when recently comparing notes with others I've found that perhaps it just makes sense that male sexuality is something the gay community knows best.
Here are some of the most common misconceptions about the male missile:
1. Your dick always goes soft after ejaculating.
2. It's impossible to pee with a hardon.
3. There are squirters, and there are dribblers, but "storing it up" can make for good distance.Let's take a fun dive into each topic.
Your dick always gets soft after ejaculatingIt's something that we may have all been taught in Phys Ed, when the jock gym teacher was forced to teach us about cocks, balls, vag and the rest: The male phallus loses blood as soon as ejaculation is complete.
I can safely tell you that it's just not true. At least not always.
Gay guys probably don't talk about this in mixed company because it may make us look (more) like ultra-horny deviants. Plus, we don't like to brag -- most straight guys have sex or masturbate for one purpose: to bust a nut. Not for pleasure, but for purpose. Add the guilt many men feel after ejaculation -- not only with masturbation but even with a partner -- and you have a softie on (in) your hands.
It's impossible to pee with a hardonThis one was also taught in Phys Ed -- there is a "flap" that comes up during an erection that prevents the flow of urine, right ? Well, for many guys, if not most, it's just not true. Yes, the male body is designed to prevent urine and semen from mixing, and I'm quite certain there are complex biological firewalls intended to prevent a piss-and-cum combination from coming out at any one single time, but most guys with a boner don't have trouble peeing through it.
There are squirters, and there are dribblersThis one is probably the most complex of the three, and has the most potential to cause trouble, particularly in existing (gay and straight) relationships. Here are the goods: guys who can "sometimes" or "used to" shoot a good distance are probably just lacking the stimulation the other times.
There are plenty of stories surrounding this one. Some guys say they used to shoot strong but just got old. Some guys say they shoot serious seed only if they "store it up" like a squirrel in the winter.
The guys I talked to suggested that, sure, holding off a couple of days might make for a more impressive shot now and then, but there's just as much chance of a globby dribble after a wait.
The answers ? Stimulation and semen consistency. The more exciting the situation, and the better the stimulation, the better the muzzle velocity in many cases. For some guys, a new partner can bring-out the big guns. For others, it is the build-up -- one guy said his best shot is usually his 3rd of the day. While he agreed that the over-the-top titillation is a factor, he also suggested that less available sperm may mean a more watery and thus a more launchable load.
There's also the whole idea of timing. A few said they sometimes try to "kegel it out" but others just let it rip naturally.
For guys in monogamous relationships -- gay or straight -- who used to shoot for distance but think they're just too old now might just be lacking appropriate stimulation. Scary ? Perhaps. Just sayin'.
Just remember that a rocket-like cumshot might be a load of fun but it isn't everything.
As for your personal taste, long shots and dribbles are probably equal. Another reason to stock-up on fresh pineapple juice.
