Little is known about the phenomenon of multiple orgasms among men. The traditional view assumes there are two stages of orgasm in the healthy male: emission following orgasm almost instantly, followed by a refractory period. Contradictory experiences have been reported by men. Data from interviews with 21 multiply orgasmic men are presented. Men reported that detumescence does not always follow an orgasm, that a nonejaculatory orgasm can occur prior to as well as after an ejaculatory orgasm, and that it is possible to have a series of orgasms. Some of the men reported always having been multiply orgasmic, whereas others experienced it relatively late in life. Others have actively learned to become multiply orgasmic. It may be that our traditional expectations regarding the possible limited range of male orgasmic capacity have profoundly influenced men's behavior as well as research in this area.
