Yow! How much ejaculate can the human body produce? (NFBSK)

Comment: I don't know where you guys draw the line, but for me this is a
serious physiological question. I'm not asking anyone to view something
they don't want to see, so please don't get angry at me if you don't like
it.

This question is essentially about how much ejaculate the human body can
possibly produce. There's this video that I've seen floating around the
net for a while:

http:
//www.youporn.com/watch/136972

and I don't know if it's true or not, or if it's even possible. (In case
you haven't clicked on it yet, it's not commercial porn but what looks
like a home made video of an individual guy wanking off.) I'm wondering if
you can find out if this video is authentic, dig up some info on its
origins, or possibly even find the person who made it.

Well, dude has some obviously odd anatomy, so I'd have to say it's not impossible he has other oddities. There was nothing in the video that made me instantly think it was fake. The semen looked pretty much like normal semen, just a whole lot more than is normal.

I've come across this before. Stroke me as odd but didn't see anything fake about it. I would think his rather large testicles produce much more sperm than normal sized ones, and if he didn't ejaculate for a while that could cause a large amount of ejaculate also.

Now let me find a trash can to throw up my dinner in.

Nice slip of the tongue there, dan.

And I seem to remember this video made the rounds a few years ago and it was determined that he umm, inserted a needle in his testicle that contained some kind of fluid and that's what caused the immense amount of stuff.

But umm, that was gross anyway.. yeah.

Yeah, but didn't it look so small and forlorn and dejected at the end? How sad.

His mother must be very proud.

I remember seeing this like a billion years ago (probably back when I was too young to be looking a porn, ha) and it is really weird. I still occasionally wonder (when something vague and random reminds me of it in a really obscure way) how on earth he could ejaculate so much.

The testes only produce a small portion of the ejaculate volume; most of it comes from the seminal vesicles, small glands adjacent to the prostate, and from the prostate itself. Men who have had vasectomies still ejaculate with scarcely diminished volume; even men who have lost their testicles entirely can ejaculate.

Also: some men can introduce urine into their ejaculation, increasing the volume dramatically. (The same is true for videos of women squirting enormous volumes of liquid.)

The scrotum looks oddly distended, not like it contains large testes, rather that it is over-filled with fluid.

My personal guess is that Mr. Fountain has injected liquid into the scrotum and it is ejected with the normal ejaculate.

By the way... DANG but that's a lot of semen!

I also find that it is quite strange that this guy hasn't been snagged by the niche porn industry and has made lots of movies. I vote faked.

I don't think that would work. If you look at diagrams of testes in Gray's Anatomy or other reference, the little sacs that store the sperm and sperm-carrying fluid are very small. It's a little as if you were to try to inject large amounts of liquid into your saliva glands or tear glands: it wouldn't allow you to drool or weep in vast prodigious amounts. The same is true for the sacs near the prostate; they just aren't that big, and they aren't extendable the way, say, the bladder is.

(Again, the same is true for the glands which produce the equivalent liquids in women; those videos of women squirting out pints of fluid may not be faked, but that fluid has to be, for the most part, mere urine. Otherwise, the "G-Spot" gland wouldn't be a mystery to science; it would be as large as a grapefruit, and would have been discovered centuries ago by dissection of cadavers!)

The videos may be real, but if the volume emitted is getting up towards 10 or more fluid ounces, then it ain't coming from the testes, and almost certainly not from the prostate either.

And...the videos may simply be faked. Amazing, the things people will do when they're bored!

It's about the plumbing. Adding fluid to the scrotal sac (outside of the testes themselves) should not change the volume of the ejaculate. It may be that he has abnormally large testes, which gives this result. The scrotum looks huge.

I agree. I think this guy may have injected some milky fluid into his testes. The viscosity is not at all like semen. Too "watery" to be real.

The famous porno "volume guy" has already been discussed in snopes threads in the past. He is Peter North.

One other thing I noticed about the OP guy (besides the unusual quantity), is that by the time he finishes he is totally flaccid. That is strange.

There could be many reasons why any "unusual" person would not be in the porno industry in spite of their outstanding ability. But my suspicion is that this video clip is gay fetish porn and this guy did something to himself and really can't sexually perform (outside of masturbation) on camera with this result. I could be wrong.

Ooh, a spanking! And this thread was already so naughty! (Grin!)

Do you think I'm on the right track, that prodigious squirters (of both sexes) are diluting the product with urine?

If you look closely enough(purely for research of course), you can see the semen tinged slightly yellow...

Anatomy wise, according to the books, it shouldn't be possible. But porn stars have been doing this for some time now to increase the amount of the "money shot".

ahem.. back to your irregularly scheduled program.

Are you saying that it's known that "gushy" male porn stars are pissing while they come? I don't see the yellow in the OP payload.

That doesn't necessarily indicate urine, though. Sometimes it's a little yellow on its own.
