Although there are some men who, at least on occasion, are up to the task of performing sensually 2 or more times in a row without a real break, they are by far the exception and not the rule. No matter what excellent manhood care a man may take, it’s hard to perform “serially” like that because the member simply isn’t made that way. Regular male organ function, in terms of how much time needs to elapse between male seed releases, is generally known as the refractory period, and every man has one – even if that time between male seed releases may vary.
Male organ function
The body is a wonderful piece of work, including everything that makes up the reproductive system. On the surface, male organ function seems pretty simple: a man spots someone who pleases him, the member responds by becoming tumescent. In many situations, this leads to sensual experiences (either by the man alone or by the man with a partner or partners), which hopefully ends with the release of male seed through male seed release and the concomitant pleasurable sensation.
In reality, it’s a little more complicated than that. There are all sorts of sensory signals that get passed back and forth, as well as neurological impulses, physical stimulants, et cetera. And part of the process calls for the refractory period, in both men and women. However, in women the refractory period often can be very short; in men, it tends to be longer.
The refractory period
For men, the refractory period is defined as the amount of time after a man releases seed before he is capable of attaining another tumescence. It doesn’t matter if a man attains pleasurable sensations or not (although clearly most men would prefer to attain pleasurable sensation when they release seed); a man simply has to finish releasing male seed to mark the beginning of a new refractory period.
How long is that refractory period? That depends. Sometimes and in some men, it may only be a few minutes, although usually it is longer than that. Most studies state that the average for all men of all ages is about half an hour. However, it varies widely. For example, the average for 18-year-old men is about 15 minutes. For a 70-year-old man, the refractory period is apt to be about 20 hours on average. (Now you know why older men tend to bemoan their lost youth!)
There are some men who seem to experience no refractory period at all, but they are quite rare.
It should be noted that the refractory period tends to lengthen the more times in a row one attempts sensual activity. So a man might have a half hour refractory period between sensual acts one and two, but perhaps it takes 45 minutes or an hour before two and three, and perhaps even longer between three and four.
How it happens
When a man is sensually excited, his body produces a lot of the hormone known as dopamine, which makes a person feel good. This encourages him to move forward with his inclination toward sensual activity. But after he release seed, the dopamine stops being produced at the same exalted level, and a hormone called prolactin increases. Prolactin dampens the ability to become tumescent, so the more prolactin in the body, the longer a man’s refractory period is likely to be.
So the refractory period affects male organ function, but in a manner that is essentially natural. Maintaining good general health and good male organ health can help increase the likelihood of shorter refractory periods, so it may pay to use a superior male organ health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The best of these oils contain both L-arginine and vitamin C. The former is an amino acid that produces nitric oxide, which in turn helps manhood blood vessels to expand. And vitamin C is also necessary for proper blood flow, which is essential for maintaining tumescence function.
