  • A Dr Madeleine Castellanos, MD, Psychiatry, answered on behalf of Good In Bed
    The four-stage model for understanding male sexual response is excitement, plateau, orgasm, and response.

    After the excitement phase, a man's excitement tends to plateau or level off before he gets even more aroused. During this phase, his body approaches orgasm and he usually has a full erection. As he gets ready to come, his abs and thighs tighten, his hands and feet clench, and his breath gets quicker and more uneven.
