How to cum more?

  • June 22, 2020
On average, a healthy man ejaculates 1.5 ml to 7.6 ml of semen for every secretion. As much as this range is considered normal, men with a lower average of semen would want to increase it. Read further for various 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 as a man are aroused, the higher the chances of producing more cum when you finally climax.

II. Cock ring

Though 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 is no evidence currently showing increased sperm concentration using cock rings, but they make for a stronger orgasm. Stronger orgasms produce more cum. Men usually use cock rings as they get older.

III. Edging

Edging involves stimulating the penis until you are just about to climax and then stopping (without cumming). This allows the orgasm to die out, before increasing the stimulation again, delaying the ejaculation.

Although edging is particularly useful to men who are struggling with premature ejaculation, it can be useful to any man who is 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’. They 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 European Urology discovered a link between regular smoking in men and bad sperm morphology, reduced sperm amount, and lower sperm mobility.[3]

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

III. Reduce stress levels

Lots of studies suggest that stress in life 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 make a lifestyle change with the aim of reducing stress levels. For instance, changing jobs, careers, or even residence. 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 average amount of semen every time. You can do this by avoiding masturbation and scheduling sex for at least 2 days.

V. Drink less alcohol

Alcohol intake reduces volume and sperm count, 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 also 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 a man wants to increase their semen volume. Here are a few diet changes that can help a man cum more.

I. Drink more water

man drinks waterDrinking enough water is of the best thing a man can do for his health and semen. A significant proportion of semen is fluid that does not hold any sperm cells. Even though more water will not increase sperm concentration, it will help create more fluid in semen.

Water makes up to 60% of the human body. Drinking 8 glasses of water daily is great for health in many ways. You can gauge your state of hydration by checking the color of urine. Transparent or very pale urine means you are well hydrated but green or yellow urine means you need to drink more water.

II. Green tea

Originally from Japan, green tea has a chemical called EGCG that when taken in moderate amounts, can be a major boost in sperm production. Beware not to drink excessive amounts of green tea because that could actually reduce sperm production.

III. Celery

Even though it is yet to be scientifically proven, celery has been numerous users on many online platforms including Reddit swear by it. Even porn starts claiming it helps to produce large amounts of cum.

Celery contains vitamins A, C, and K and 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, therefore, it is quite unpopular while being readily available.

IV. Walnuts

Walnuts are a common go-to food for men who want to increase sperm quality and improve the quality of their ejaculation. A study discovered that consuming half a cup of walnuts significantly improved the quality of sperm compared to having 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 that is known to boost both sperm amount and quality. Even though it doesn’t taste as good as milk chocolate, it will get you the desired improvement.

VI. Fish

Fish has plenty of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that 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 get Omega 3 supplements.[5]

VII. Bananas

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

VIII. Carrots

Carrots are orange in color because of the carotenoids in them. Carotenoids are great for boosting sperm mobility and quality too. 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 a man cum harder and with better quality sperm. A study in Iraq found that treatment with ginger improved sperm count by 16% and semen volume by 36%.[6]

4. Exercises

I. Gym

Going to the gym or consistently working out greatly improves your general health. It turns out it also helps you produce more semen when you climax. The more well-functioning and healthier you are, the better you are, sexually.

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

II. Kegel exercise

Though mostly associated with women, Kegel exercises are good for men too. It is meant to strengthen PC muscles (The pubococcygeus muscles). This is the muscle group that controls urine flow. To identify PC muscles, when you are peeing, and stop its flow of the stream, that is the muscle you use.

To exercise the muscles, pretend you’re urinating then stop the flow by quickly contracting your muscles. Focus on the pelvic muscles only and keep the abdomen and thigh muscles relaxed. Release it after 2 seconds and 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, you can try it while having penetrative sex with your partner.

Besides increasing the semen volume, Kegel exercise can also 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 heartbeat.

II. Semenax

This sperm volume supplement can increase sperm volume, and boost the strength and intensity of orgasms. It contains a number of “sperm production 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 that increases sperm production. Studies on rabbits showed L-Arginine increased their sperm count and fertility. Just be careful not to take too much of it.

IV. Zinc

Several studies have linked zinc levels to body sperm production. Some of the studies have shown that men with low sperm count can be successfully treated 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 boost sperm production. Men on several internet forums claim to have benefited from it. There is yet any scientific evidence showing its effect on sperm volume.

VI. Vitamin C

It has been proven by studies that vitamin C is necessary for healthy sperm count, sperm mobility, and semen volume. Vitamin C can be consumed in our daily diet (strawberries, potatoes, oranges, orange juice, and green/red pepper) or through ingesting supplements.

VII. Vitamin D

Although a number of studies have shown that Vitamin D cannot remedy infertility problems, it is believed that to help is 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 more, which seems a little too high. Some of its ingredients include solidilin, zinc, kugu, and other herbs.
