  • AJan Shifren, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology, answered
    When muscle tension and genital engorgement peak, a series of rhythmic contractions occurs in the sex organs. The contractions force the congested blood out of the tissues and back into circulation. Along with this comes an abrupt release of muscle tension and a pleasurable sensation. In a man, penile contractions expel semen out of the urethra; this is known as ejaculation.
