Dry Orgasm after Prostate Cancer Treatment


Dry orgasm is a lack of ejaculatory fluid during the orgasm that may accompany sexual intercourse or masturbation. In prostate cancer treatment, the prostatectomy removes the prostate gland and the seminal vesicles that produce the fluid medium for the sperm cells generated by the testicles. After the removal of these organs, the testicles still produce sperm cells. The sperm during ejaculation have nowhere to go and are simply reabsorbed by the body. Some men worry that dry ejaculation may be damaging to his view of his own sexuality as well as his partner’s view of his sexuality. Dry ejaculation does not mean impotence or an inability to achieve orgasm, simply a lack of ejaculatory fluid.
