How Much Should A Guy Ejaculate?

There are a lot of questions about sex from the common (read: anything involving butt stuff) to the you-thought-no-one-would-ask-but-there-are-lots-of-curious-people. Here at Gurl, we do our best to try and answer any queries you might have whether they’re about how to master a technique or about what is normal down there. Of course, there are many questions about dudes and their bodies.

If you’re hooking up with girls, you have a pretty good idea what you’re going to get because you have very similar parts. Guys obviously have different anatomy, which can result in many questions, not to mention some unexpected scenarios. Even those who are more experienced can have questions. One area that seems to constantly intrigue is semen.

Us ladies might have things that come out of us, but a guy’s ejaculate is different. And that’s why we have questions. One popular question we have is how much should a guy ejaculate? I’m here to hopefully answer it.

So, is there a normal amount that bae should be ejaculating?

According to Men’s Health, the average amount of ejaculate released during an orgasm is 3.4 milliliters (ml). To help you get a visual, that about three-quarters of a teaspoon. However, the common range in volume is from 1.5 ml to 6.0 ml, according to Women’s Health. That works out to about a third of a teaspoon to a bit over a teaspoon.

Is bae always going to ejaculate the same amount?

Even if you don’t have a teaspoon out to measure bae’s load, you will probably have realized that sometimes he ejaculates more or less. You don’t have to worry because it’s normal.

Does it differ between sex and masturbating?

Generally, guys will probably produce a bigger load when having sex compared to beating off. It has to do with the rhythms and the, erm, environment, but there are other factors to take into consideration. (See below).

Does the amount vary depending on how big his orgasm is?

A lot of people think that the bigger a guy’s load, the more he enjoyed himself, but that actually isn’t true. There are other factors which impact bae’s cum including the last time he had an orgasm, what medication he is on, whether he is dehydrated, or even his weight.

Wait, what does hydration have to do with anything?

Semen is mostly made up of sperm, proteins, seminal fluids and fructose. This might confuse you further, but think about it this way: If the body is already short on something (i.e. water) Would it want to deplete more of its resources? Exactly.

And how does weight impact the size of a guy’s load?

There are studies that report men with a body mass index (BMI) over 30 produce about 2 ml less semen than guys whose BMIs are under 30. Further research needs to be done whether the smaller loads are the result of lack of exercise, fat deposits, or a combination of the two.

So, if bae only ejaculates a bit, should I be worried?

It depends. The low semen count could be contributed to bae’s weight, the aforementioned medication, or it could be impacted from stress or lack of sleep. Other things that can cause smaller loads are diabetes and low testosterone. To confirm the last two, bae would need to get tested by a medical professional.

Anything else I should know?

It probably isn’t that relevant now, but a dude’s load will actually decrease as he gets older. Guys in their teens, 20’s, and 30’s probably won’t notice a difference, but they will likely notice a decrease after that.
