Dear Em & Lo,

Is it common for men to be able to have multiple orgasms?

The reason I ask is because I can masturbate and stay hard for over an hour, sometimes less/sometimes more, and can have multiple orgasms and ejaculations. I’ve been able to do this for as long as I can remember, I’m 35 currently. Of course with age, it got better. Recently I had 3 orgasms and ejaculations in a 40 minute period, I tell you, it wore me out but felt great.

I’m still a virgin (yeah I know, unusual), so I couldn’t say if this is possible or not for me to do during sex too, however I hope it is whenever that time comes around. Anyhow, I was wondering if this is normal for the average guy or if it is rare? Do most men have this ability? If it is rare, just how rare is it(1 in 3, 1 in 5)?

What do you think of Captain M.T.’s capabilities? Let him know in the comments below. 



  1. A virgin at 35, if it is for religious reasons…commendable. Our society could use some morality and purity. BUT The Captain doesn’t indicate such.

    Howevah, I see this man-boy as totally self-absorbed. He will never find a woman (or if homosexual: another man) as much fun as himself.

    I recommend INTENSIVE therapy and not with a sex therapist, but one who can uncover this man’s narcissistic personality.

    This isn’t a sex problem, it is a personality problem.

  2. I’ve had two orgasms from masturbation. I think anyone can do it if they have the patience. Right after my first orgasm the tip of my penis is pretty sensitive, so I touch lightly till it feels good again then work up to another. I don’t do it very often. It can be done. I’ve never tried it during sex. My wife couldn’t handle it.

  3. Very rare… Never ‘known’ a man like this before… I’m curious as to whether it’s just something you CAN do, or if it’s something your body WANTS.

    As a woman, multiple orgasms start happening when one just isn’t enough to satisfy me!

  4. It sounds like he has a really brief refractory period of about fifteen minutes. I don’t think it’s medically possible for a man to have an orgasm and then immediately have another, but three in 40 minutes doesn’t sound out of the realm of possibility. I think most men have been with someone new and exciting and have enjoyed long love-making sessions with what this writer terms “multiple” orgasms. But they aren’t multiple in the way women have them. They are separated by a refractory period.
