Q. How can I enhance the quantity of my ejaculate? What aspects decide how much of semen comes out?

A. Increasing the amount of semen that is ejaculated appears to be of a worry to almost all men. There are many causes for this concern. For most men it is an issue of pride. A huge amount of ejaculation is related with enhanced sex drive, fertility and sexual competency.

However, this concern has more to it than just pride. A higher amount of semen mean an increase in potency (enhanced sperm mean a higher possibility of impregnation) and increased satisfaction (increased semen volume means increase in pleasure due to higher muscle contractions).

The amount of ejaculate is dependent on factors such as heredity, age, food habits and general health condition. Heredity and age are not in your control. But, changes in your diet and lifestyle can enhance the quantity of your ejaculate.

Consuming amino acids (L-arginine and L-lysine), zinc and Horny Goat Weed plant assists in increasing the volume. Also adding more fluids in your daily consumption helps.

Maintaining good health helps to attain excellent blood circulation which aids ejaculation. And if you have a HopefulPenis, which almost all men do, and you would like to perform exercises that enhance penis vitality you should begin exercising your PC muscle.

Abstaining for more than this period will not cause much variation because the semen storage stops accumulating after a certain period.

Q. What are the STDs that can be transmitted through oral sex by semen?

A. When considering the risk of transmitting an STD through oral sex from one partner to another then women are at greater danger than men.

However, if your relationship is monogamous and both the partners are tested then there is no cause to fear that either of you is infected with an STD. By itself healthy semen causes no danger of ill effects.
