ejaculation

 [e-jak″u-la´shun]
forcible, sudden expulsion; especially expulsion of semen from the male urethra, a reflex action that occurs as a result of sexual stimulation. adj., adj ejac´ulatory. The three components of semen are expelled in quick succession. First to emerge is a lubricating fluid produced by the bulbourethral glands in the penis; next comes a fluid released into the urethral channel by the prostate, providing a neutral medium within which the sperm cells can swim; and lastly, the spermatic fluid, which has been stored in the seminal vesicles, is likewise injected into the urethral channel and ejaculated. See also reproduction.
premature ejaculation ejaculation consistently occurring either prior to, upon, or immediately after penetration and before desired, taking into account factors such as age, novelty of the specific situation and recent frequency of sexual activity.
retarded ejaculation male orgasmic disorder.
retrograde ejaculation ejaculation with discharge of the semen into the bladder rather than through the urethra to the outside. It often occurs after prostatectomy or spinal cord injury.

e·jac·u·la·tion

(ē-jak'yū-lā'shŭn),
The process that results in propulsion of semen from the genital ducts and urethra to the exterior; caused by the rhythmic contractions of the muscles surrounding the internal genital organs and the ischiocavernous and bulbocavernous muscles, resulting in an increase in pressure on the semen in the internal genital glands and the internal urethra. Compare: emission.

ejaculation

[-ā′shən]
Etymology: L, ejaculari, to hurl out
the sudden emission of semen from the male urethra, usually during copulation, masturbation, or nocturnal emission. It is a reflex action in two phases. In the first phase, sperm, seminal fluid, and prostatic and bulbourethral gland secretions are moved into the urethra. In the second phase, strong spasmodic peristaltic contractions force ejaculation. The sensation of ejaculation is commonly also called orgasm. The fluid volume of the ejaculate is usually between 2 and 5 mL. Each milliliter usually contains 50 million to 150 million spermatozoa. ejaculatory [ijak'yələtôr'ē] , adj.
