What Having a Male Orgasm Really Feels Like
20 Men Try to Describe What an Orgasm Actually Feels Like, “That feeling you get when you crack your knuckles, except all over your whole body.”
We can all agree than orgasm is one of the best feelings in the world—but how do you describe that incredible sensation? Is it a sweet, sweet release? An explosion of fireworks?
Here, 20 men try to put into words what an orgasm actually feels like.
1.“It feels like popping a really big zit except the zit is your penis and the pus is ejaculate. It doesn’t hurt, but it’s still the same.” —Michael, 24
2. “It feels like that moment in between falling asleep and waking up. Total escapism.” —Paul, 23
3. “It’s like the most satisfying experience of being invincible and relieved at the same time. It lasts only a few fleeting moments before you come back down to earth.” —Alex, 24
4. “It’s almost like the feeling of being tickled while you have to pee, but in a good way.” —David*,28
5. “It feels different depending on what it’s inside and how much buildup there is. Orgasming in something warm and wet (like a mouth or vagina) feels like arriving home after a long trip and collapsing into my bed–intensely relieving, pleasurable, and a little tiring but in a good way. Orgasming in my hand with little foreplay and no lube feels satisfying, but not particularly pleasurable, like the end of a workday or Netflix show. The constants: the spasming, the mess, and the immediate search for tissues.” —Matthew, 28
6. “On a physical level, it feels like your whole groin area is tensing up. It’s like getting a cramp, but in a good way. Like, your dick is having a spasm, but it feels great. It’s really hard to explain.” —Tom, 24
7. “Like peeing, on molly.” —Greg, 23
8. “It’s exactly like your first sip of coffee in the morning, when, for a split second, the burden of knowing you’re going to die is gone.” —Jim, 30
9. “It’s like your penis takes over your brain for a few seconds. Like everything goes numb, except for this amazing sensation in your penis. You can’t focus or feel anything else. You might as well not even exist. You’re just this good feeling, and then it goes back to normal and you’re like, ‘Dammit.'” —Shawn, 22
10. “Imagine a tube of toothpaste that’s almost empty and someone rolls it up and squeezes it as hard as they can and the toothpaste shoots out everywhere. Except the toothpaste is coming out of the most sensitive part of your body and it feels awesome.”
