The male orgasm is considered the pinnacle of sexual enjoyment. At the point of orgasm, an individual becomes highly relaxed and experiences an intense peak of pleasure which is often (but not always) followed by ejaculation (the expulsion of semen from the penis).
Most people associate the male orgasm with penile stimulation or ‘ejaculatory’ orgasms. These are perhaps the most well-known type of male orgasm but aren’t the only type of climax men can have. Men are also able to experience highly pleasurable prostate orgasms. These are typically achieved by stimulating the prostate, a walnut-sized gland located underneath the bladder in front of the rectum.
The term ‘blended orgasm’ is commonly associated with female orgasms, describing when clitoral and penetrative orgasms coincide.
However, men may also be able to achieve intense blended orgasms by combining penile and prostate orgasms. This article explores male blended orgasms and offers a few tips that may help to improve your chances of achieving them.
What is a blended orgasm?
A blended orgasm is when an individual achieves different types of orgasms at the same time. This may lead to the sensations of each type of orgasm being “blended” and leading to a euphoric feeling of pleasure. For male blended orgasms, the term refers to when penile and prostate orgasms occur together, leading to men experiencing the pleasure of both types of orgasms simultaneously.
Female blended orgasm vs. Male blended orgasms
An internet search for “blended orgasm” will highlight that most articles on the subject are based on female blended orgasms. For females, blended orgasms may occur when clitoral and vaginal orgasms coincide.
Men may achieve blended orgasms when penile stimulation orgasms and prostate orgasms occur simultaneously.
The female ability to reach different kinds of orgasms (clitoral or penetrative) is well documented. The clitoris and the g-spot are well-known parts of the female anatomy, with research suggesting that many women are capable of achieving both types of orgasms.
Amongst males, despite penile orgasms being common, prostate orgasms aren’t as widely known. There is little research into male blended orgasms or prostate orgasms. Men who avoid anal play may never achieve a prostate orgasm, potentially preventing blended orgasms from occurring.
Can men achieve a blended orgasm?
At the time of writing, there is little to no research into the area. However, anecdotal reports suggest that male blended orgasms are possible, with self-reported occurrences existing across a number of online forums. A common theme is the ability to achieve two types of climax: penile stimulation and prostatic orgasms. We’ve explored both in the context of blended orgasms below.
The location of the prostate means that individuals who are aiming to achieve blended orgasms need to be comfortable with anal play. This is because carrying out a prostate massage involves inserting a lubricated finger or sex toy into the anal passage in order to reach the prostate.

While research acknowledges that much of the information available on male prostate orgasms comes from individual reports, it notes the powerful pleasure capabilities of this type of orgasm (suggesting they’re even more pleasurable than penile stimulation orgasms).
Penile stimulation orgasm
Some individuals report that ejaculatory orgasms can naturally coincide (without the need for penile stimulation) with their prostate orgasms. While others may require penile stimulation to take place simultaneously with prostate stimulation.
In the case of the latter, being able to control when ejaculatory orgasms are released may prove a useful skill for timing purposes. Although penile orgasm and ejaculation often occur subsequently, it should be noted that the pleasure experienced during penile orgasm and the expulsion of semen are two separate processes. Individuals may still experience penile orgasms without the release of semen (dry orgasms).

6 Tips to Increase your chances of a blended orgasm
For anyone wondering how to achieve blended orgasms, you’ll be disappointed to know that there’s no step-by-step guide. However, we’ve explored a few areas that may increase your chances of achieving a blended orgasm and highlighted them below.
1. Master the practice of edging
Being able to control when you release an ejaculatory orgasm is a great skill to have and a technique that may improve this ability is edging. Edging refers to bringing yourself close to climax, before withdrawing penile stimulation and allowing your penile sensitivity to reset.

This technique has been used to treat premature ejaculation (PE), a condition where individuals can’t last long enough without ejaculating to enjoy sex. Ultimately by edging, you’re extending the amount of time you can participate in sexual activity without ejaculating. This may prove invaluable when trying to time the release of your penile orgasm and synchronize it with a prostate orgasm.
2. Strengthen your pelvic floor muscles
Another method of improving an individual’s ejaculatory control may be improving pelvic floor muscle strength. The pelvic floor physiology is based around control of the bladder and bowel, sexual function and pregnancy.
In order to increase an individual's pelvic floor muscle strength, they can perform regular exercise.
Kegel exercises (also known as Kegels) is a specific exercise routine dedicated to achieving this goal. Kegel exercises are associated with a number of benefits including prevention of cystocele, rectocele and urinary stress incontinence. Kegels have shown promise in treating individuals with lifelong PE, and may help individuals gain improved control of ejaculatory release.
3. Get into your prostate play
Many men are experienced with stimulating their penis but are perhaps less knowledgeable when it comes to stimulating their prostate. For men who are inexperienced with anal play, the idea of massaging their prostate may be daunting. However, given that a prostate orgasm is a part of achieving a blended orgasm, you need to be comfortable with prostate play.

There are a number of ways that a person can engage in prostate play. Simple methods can involve using a lubricated finger, while other techniques may involve using sex toys or help from a partner which we cover in our next sections.
4. Use anal toys
Anal toys can be an effective way of stimulating your prostate, allowing you to achieve a prostate orgasm. Anal toys come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and capabilities (e.g. vibration settings). Sex toys can be useful when an individual lacks the knowledge of their anatomy to achieve a prostate orgasm manually (e.g. using their fingers).

Given the range of options available, it’s likely that a suitable sex toy exists to meet most people's needs. Prostate massagers are purpose-built to help people achieve prostate orgasms and may take some of the guesswork out of the equation.
5. Get help from your partner
If your partner is invested in helping you achieve a blended orgasm, getting assistance from them can be a great way to help you achieve one. When working towards a blended orgasm, it's important to remember that two separate areas of the male anatomy may require stimulation for achieving a blended orgasm. In this case, your partner may be able to focus on one area while you stimulate the other.
If your partner is invested in helping you achieve a blended orgasm, getting assistance from them can be a great way to help you achieve one.
When working towards a blended orgasm with a partner, communication can be key to creating the best possible experience. For example, if you find that you are nearing orgasm through penile stimulation, communicating this to your partner may help improve their timing when it comes to prostate stimulation. Research has linked sexual communication to greater relationship and sexual satisfaction.
6. Be patient
While the idea of blended orgasms sounds a simple one, the reality may be far more challenging. Most things worth having take time so It’s important to manage your expectations and approach blended orgasms with a patient attitude.
For example, If you are new to prostate stimulation, you may lack the skills or awareness to achieve a prostate orgasm. So, practicing this skill with patience may be key to being able to achieve a blended orgasm in the future. A positive attitude and having the patience to hone in on your stimulation skills may increase your chances of reaching a blended orgasm.
As pleasurable as the regular male orgasm may be, blended orgasms may allow individuals to experience the combined pleasure of ejaculatory and prostate orgasms simultaneously.
In order to achieve a blended orgasm, an individual needs to be comfortable achieving both types of orgasm.
Some of the techniques utilized by individuals to achieve this may include edging, becoming comfortable with anal play, and introducing sex toys to the bedroom. Given enough practice, an individual may achieve the level of skill required to achieve intense blended orgasms.
