Dr Roger Henderson looks at what causes dry orgasms, what you can do about them and when you should be concerned:. A dry orgasm is what happens when a man reaches a sexual climax but does not ejaculate, so no fluid emerges from the penis. It is also sometimes known as orgasmic anejaculation and some men get worried by this if they think it is due to a prostate problem. Although dry orgasms can indeed be caused by some treatments for prostatic disease, this only occurs in middle-aged and older men as a phenomenon called retrograde ejaculation.

The ejaculate can move out of the penis because a small muscle, called the bladder sphincter, closes the opening to the bladder, preventing the semen from entering the bladder.
