How to cum more?

  • October 6, 2023
On average, a healthy man ejaculates 1.4 to 7.5 ml of semen, for every secretion. This range is considered normal, but men with a lower average of semen would want to increase it. In this guide we will cover several ways to produce larger amounts.

The various solutions have been split into sex tips, lifestyle changes, diet changes, exercises, and supplements.

1. Sex tips

I. Foreplay

Sex is enjoyed more savored at every stage, rather that when treated as an objective, what many men tend to do. Before it is full-blown, enjoy the teasing, foreplay, and arousal.

Foreplay naturally increases lubrication when done with a female partner, making sex even more enjoyable.

The more you’re aroused, the higher the chances of producing more cum when you finally climax.

II. Cock ring

Commonly used by men wanting to last longer during sex, cock rings can also aid in creating more intense orgasms. They work by restricting blood flow to the penis, making an erection last longer, delaying an orgasm.

Because of delayed ejaculation, you’ll most likely end up with higher amounts of semen during sex. There’s currently no evidence showing increased sperm concentration using cock rings, but these make for a stronger orgasm, producing more cum. Men usually use cock rings as they get older.

III. Edging

Edging involves stimulating the penis until you’re almost climaxing, and then stopping (without cumming). This lets the orgasm die out, before increasing the stimulation again, delaying the ejaculation.

Although edging is particularly useful if you’re struggling with premature ejaculation, it can be useful if you’re struggling to produce enough semen. The eventual climax is powerful.

It can be performed by taking breaks during penetrative intercourse, using male sex toys, or as a handjob.

IV. Delay techniques

This is another solution based on the principle that ejaculation volume increases with a delayed climax. Low volumes of ejaculation are, generally, associated with quicker orgasms.

One of the products used to achieve delayed ejaculation is ‘delay sprays’. These have been observed to delay ejaculation, as evidenced in one NHS study. They prolonged intercourse sessions by, approximately, 40 minutes.[1]

2. Lifestyle changes

I. Get good sleep

sleep for better healthStudies suggest that sleeping 7 hours, or longer, every night increases both sperm count and semen volume. Too little sleep (6.5 hours or below) or too much sleep (9 hours or more) reduces both sperm count and semen volume.[2]

II. Stop smoking

A 2016 study by the European Urology discovered a link between regular smoking and bad sperm morphology, reduced sperm amount, and lower sperm mobility.[3]

For better sexual health, go easy on smoking or stop it altogether.

III. Reduce stress levels

Lots of studies suggest that stress reduces the quality of sperm. When stress hormones, like adrenaline and cortisol, are rushing through the body, it’s a challenge to generate large amounts of semen, naturally. Chronic stress is detrimental to physical health, the mind, and even sexual health.

It’s advisable to alter your lifestyle with the aim of reducing stress levels. Change jobs, careers, or even residences. Get more sleep if you are sleep–deprived, and consider getting professional help if needed. Lower stress means better reproductive health.

IV. Cum less regularly

According to experts, semen is regenerated by the male reproductive system every 3 days. Daily masturbation drains semen reserves.

Waiting for 3 days before ejaculation will produce a higher semen amount, on average, every time. You can do this by avoiding masturbation, and scheduling sex for, at least, 2 days.

V. Drink less alcohol

Alcohol intake reduces sperm count and volume, besides sexual performance. A study in Denmark found that consuming 40 units of alcohol every week reduces sperm concentration by a third, compared to consuming only 1 to 5 units.[4]

Other effects associated with heavy drinking are shrunken testes and reduced testosterone levels. Additionally, alcohol causes dehydration in the body. This makes it harder for the body to produce enough semen.

3. Diet changes

A diet change is really easy and helpful when you want to increase your semen volume. Here are a few diet changes that can help you cum more.

I. Drink more water

man drinks waterDrinking enough water is one of the best things you can do for your health, and semen. A significant proportion of semen doesn’t hold any sperm cells. Even though more water won’t increase sperm concentration, it will help create more fluid in semen.

Water makes up to 60% of your body. Drinking 8 glasses of it daily is great for your health in many ways. You can gauge your state of hydration by checking your urine color. Transparent or very pale urine means you’re well–hydrated, but green or yellow urine signifies dehydration.

II. Green tea

Originally from Japan, green tea has a chemical called EGCG, which, when taken in moderate amounts, can greatly boost sperm production. Beware to not drink it excessively, though, as that could reduce sperm production.

III. Celery

It’s yet to be scientifically proven, but celery has been praised by numerous online users, including on Reddit. Even porn stars are claiming it helps to produce large amounts of cum.

Celery contains vitamins A, C, and K, plus minerals like folate and potassium. These are the same elements found in semen. Consuming celery helps replenish them faster.

No one would benefit or profit from pushing the sales of celery, a reason it’s quite unpopular while being readily available.

IV. Walnuts

Walnuts are a common go-to food if you want to increase your sperm and ejaculation quality. A study discovered that consuming half a cup of walnuts significantly improved the quality of sperm, compared to ingesting a walnut-free diet.

V. Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate is quite healthy to consume. It is made up of 85%, or more, cocoa and contains an amino acid called L-Arginine, which is known to boost sperm amount and quality alike. Even though it doesn’t taste as good as milk chocolate, it will boost your sperm count.

VI. Fish

Fish has plenty of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, which are known to improve the mobility, count, and morphology of sperm. The ideal fish for Omega-3 fatty acids include sea bass, mackerel, and salmon. For vegetarians, seaweed will be an alternative, or you can get Omega-3 supplements.[5]

VII. Bananas

Bananas have several nutrients, including vitamins A, B1, and C, that are useful in producing massive healthy sperm. They have been claimed to be aphrodisiac, even, and are good for erections.

VIII. Carrots

Carrots are orange thanks to the carotenoids they contain. Carotenoids are great for boosting sperm mobility and quality. You can, therefore, eat carrots to produce more semen. Sweet potatoes will get you the same results, too.

IX. Ginger

Ginger improves testosterone levels, helping you cum harder with better-quality sperm. A study in Iraq found that treatment with ginger improved sperm count and semen volume by 16% and 36%, respectively.[6]

4. Exercises

I. Gym

Working out consistently improves your general health significantly. This includes helping you produce more semen when you climax. The more well-functioning and healthier you are, the better you are, sexually.

Fitness also gives you more stamina, makes you more sexually attractive, and boosts your confidence plus the overall state of the mind.

II. Kegel exercise

Mostly associated with women, , Kegel exercises are good for men, too. It is meant to strengthen PC muscles: the pubococcygeus muscles that control urine flow. When you’re peeing and stop the flow of the stream suddenly, for instance, you’re using the PC muscles.

To exercise the muscles, pretend you’re urinating then stop the flow by contracting your muscles quickly. Focus on the pelvic muscles only, and keep the abdomen and thigh muscles relaxed. Release it after 2 seconds; repeat it 20 times a day.

After a couple of weeks, make it 4 seconds, 50 times a day. Once you’ve mastered the intermediate level, try it while having penetrative sex with your partner.

Besides increasing the semen volume, Kegel exercise can reduce premature ejaculation. The better you master the PC muscles, the easier you can regulate sperm and urine.

5. Supplements

I. Horny goat weed

It is used to treat erectile dysfunction problems in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It can also treat arthritis, joint pain, and low sexual desire.

It boosts sperm production by increasing testosterone and blood flow. Icariin was extracted from Horny Goat Weed, and after being tested by scientists on rats, it was shown to increase erectile function.

Take caution to not exceed recommended dosage as that could cause breathing problems and abnormally high heartbeats.

II. Semenax

This supplement can increase your sperm volume, and boost the strength and intensity of orgasms. It contains several “sperm-stimulating superfoods,” like Muira Pauma, Maca, L-arginine, and Swedish Flower.

According to the manufacturer, it can increase the semen volume by 20%. An independent study also revealed that Semenax increases orgasm intensity.

III. L-Arginine supplements

When ingested, L-Arginine is turned into nitric oxide which increases sperm production. Studies on rabbits showed L-Arginine increased their sperm count and fertility. Just be careful to not take too much of it.

IV. Zinc

Several studies have linked zinc levels to sperm production. Some of the studies have shown that men with a low sperm count can be treated successfully by increasing their zinc intake. Treatment with zinc helped them produce more and better semen. Zinc also plays a role in maintaining healthy levels of testosterone.

V. Lecithin

Lecithin is known to have several health benefits for men. It helps in digestion, boosts heart health, and lowers cholesterol. Just as important, Lecithin supplements have been claimed to bolster sperm production. On several internet forums, men claim to have benefited from it. There is yet any scientific evidence showing its effect on sperm volume.

VI. Vitamin C

Studies have confirmed that vitamin C is necessary for healthy sperm count and mobility, as well as semen volume. You can consume Vitamin C in your diet (strawberries, potatoes, oranges, orange juice, and green/red pepper) or via supplements.

VII. Vitamin D

Although a number of studies have shown that Vitamin D cannot remedy infertility problems, it’s believed the nutrient promotes sperm production.

VIII. Volume pill supplements

These are developed to help men produce large amounts of semen. The manufacturer claims it can increase semen volume by up to 500 times, which seems a little too high. Some of its ingredients include solidilin, zinc, kugu, and other herbs.
