Increasing Ejaculation the Quick and Easy Way
Your Ejaculation Step 1
Drink fluids. The amount of semen that is released during orgasm is related to the volume of fluids that are ingested. That’s because semen is water-based, and semen is the fluid that helps lubricate the way for sperm. The body needs two to three liters of water a day to function properly. Drinking more fluids should therefore increase your ejaculate.
If you enjoy a couple rounds of drinks after work and a couple more before the deed, you’re doing your ejaculate a disservice. That’s because alcohol dehydrates your body, leaving it less like a slip’n’slide and more like a deserted water park. In addition to dehydrating your body, alcohol lowers sperm count and affects the quality of your sperm.
Your Ejaculation Step 2
Keep the heat away. Your mini-mes are delicate, like a flower in the tundra. They’re so delicate that they wilt when they’re exposed to excessive heat. This may help answer one of the burning questions of your youth — why are testicles outside the body? In fact, testes are housed outside the body instead of inside because they need to be able to maintain a lower temperature than 98.6 °F (37.0 °C), which is the temperature at which your body regulates heat.
What does this mean, practically speaking? If you enjoy long rides in cars with heated seats, or steamy shifts in the sauna/steam room, or even trips to your very own hot tub time machine, give them a break. They’re not worth sacrificing your little cadets for.
Your Ejaculation Step 3
Avoid wearing tight underwear. Again, the ideal temperature for semen and sperm is slightly lower than normal body temperature. Tight underwear will increase the scrotal temperature, thereby decreasing sperm and semen levels.
Your Ejaculation Step 4
Avoid sitting with your legs crossed. This philosophical posture also affects the sperm and semen volumes to a great extent. By squashing the scrotal area against the warm body, you risk increasing its temperature above the normal range. That’s a red alert, right there.
Your Ejaculation Step 5
Abstain from orgasm (for a day or two). Your body produces sperm at an astonishing rate of more than 1,500 every second, on average. That works out to anywhere from 130 to 200 million sperm cells a day. Still, whenever you orgasm, you lose a hefty portion of your serial soldiers. Try to wait a bit to increase the size of the army.
Abstaining from orgasm for one or two days is all it takes, in fact, for the body to replenish its army. Beyond one or two days, your sperm is just sitting and getting old, like tuckered out reserves.
Increasing Ejaculation with Diet and Supplements
Your Ejaculation Step 6
Take zinc together with folic acid. Zinc is an essential mineral that is instrumental in several factors of cellular metabolism. In combination with folic acid, zinc was found to increase sperm count by 74% in men who had fertility problems, according to one study.
So how much zinc and folic acid should you take every day, you ask? 1 mg of folic acid and 15 mg of zinc sulfate is recommended.
Always remember to take zinc in combination with folic acid. Taken alone, neither supplement had a significant bearing on sperm count.

Kick your soda habit. Not only is soda rich in high fructose corn syrup bad for your liver, but it’s also bad for your baby batter. Compared to men who drink no soda, those who drink more than a quart a day had 30% lower sperm counts.
Your Ejaculation Step 8
Try taking certain amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. These organic compounds, taken regularly, are reputed to boost levels of silly string. Scientists believe that sperm benefit from amino acids because certain amino acids are found in large quantities in the heads of sperm. Look out for the following amino acids to boost your ejaculate:
Your Ejaculation Step 9
Try horny goat weed. According to legend, this supplement gets its name from a Chinese goat-herder who noticed some serious arousal in his flock after they chewed on a particular species of epimedium. But does this strange herb actually work? Horny goat weed is reputed to restrict enzymes that block blood flow to the penis. Whether or not this helps your diminutive dailies is still up for debate.
Your Ejaculation Step 10
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Sometimes, all you need is a healthy diet. Fruits and veggies, especially, are rich in antioxidants, which could help improve the quality of life your sperm enjoy. Aside from increasing your ejaculate, foods rich in antioxidants will also make you healthier and help you feel better. Food rich in antioxidants include:
Wild blueberries, cranberries, and blackberries
Apples (Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Gala)
Increasing Ejaculation Through Lifestyle Changes
Your Ejaculation Step 11
Perform regular PC muscle exercises. Also called Kegel exercises, PC muscle exercises (shorthand for “pubococcygeus” muscle) do a host of functions for both sexes, but in particular men. In addition to promoting prostate health and heading off premature ejaculation, they are instrumental in prolonging the duration of orgasm as well as increasing ejaculate.
Your Ejaculation Step 12
Stop smoking, if you haven’t already. If you needed another compelling reason to quit smoking, add this one to the heap. Smoking not only lowers sperm count, but also possibly leads to higher imperfection rates in sperm.
Expecting fathers who smoke while trying to get pregnant may have children with higher rates of medical issues. During both conception and after, keeping the mother in a smoke-free environment is the best course of action, hands down.
Smoking marijuana is a no-no, too. Marijuana is known to lower both the male hormone testosterone and sperm count.
Your Ejaculation Step 13
Learn to manage your stress. However stressful your life is, try to begin to come to grips with the fact that stress is fundamentally unhealthy. It turns out that stress hormones interfere with the testes’ ability to manufacture testosterone, which is largely responsible for sperm production. In addition to diminished ejaculate, stress will also cause:
Acne and facial blemishes
Heart disease such as angina and heart attack
Your Ejaculation Step 14
Get enough physical exercise. There’s good evidence to suggest that regular physical exercise is beneficial in increasing sperm count. So put on your soccer cleats, football spikes, or court kicks and brush off some of the cobwebs in your moves.
Your Ejaculation Step 15
Practice safe sex. Safe sex is the final key to helping your little helpers go from small village to Roman dynasty. Some STIs like gonorrhea and chlamydia, can ultimately lead to infertility if left untreated. Always use protection. To be absolutely sure, engage in a mutually monogamous relationship with someone you trust.
