Thanks in part to porn films, which often feature long, thick ropes of cum, many men believe that they should be seeing copious amounts of semen when they ejaculate.
In fact, while difficulties ejaculating can sometimes signify erectile dysfunction, most men are indeed ejaculating a normal amount – even if they can’t shoot cum ropes.
In this article, I’ll talk about whether or not it’s actually possible to shoot ropes. First, I’ll discuss what shooting ropes even means and how shooting ropes relates to average semen production. Then, I’ll offer a few tips for how to shoot ropes.
Is It Possible to Shoot Ropes?
According to the World Health Organization, the approximate average semen volume is 3.7 mL per ejaculation, which translates to three-quarters of a teaspoon… or, in other words, hardly a long rope of cum.
While average semen production is hardly the gigantic mother load often seen in porn films, famous sexologist Alfred Kinsey did note in a study of male ejaculation that a quarter of men can propel their ejaculate as far as a “foot or two.”
What does that all mean for shooting cum ropes, as it were?
Basically, it is possible to shoot ropes — but there’s nothing wrong with you. Most men don’t produce a huge volume of semen when they ejaculate and three-quarters of men cannot shoot their semen any significant distance.
3 Tips for Shooting Ropes
Looking to increase semen production for shooting cum ropes? While there’s no scientifically proven way to increase semen production every time you ejaculate, try these three tips for how to shoot ropes.
#1: Abstain From All Sexual Activity for a Long Time
Some men have reported that abstaining from all sexual activity (including masturbation) for a long period of time (usually at least two weeks) will help them produce more semen. This increase in semen production is usually a one time occurrence for the first time you engage in sexual activity after your period of abstinence.
#2: Don’t Trust Supplements
There are hundreds of supplements on the market that promise to increase your semen production so you can shoot thick ropes of cum – don’t trust them. Many of these supplements have large, impossible promises and can actually do more harm than good to your health.
#3: Ejaculate Outside of Your Partner
Looking to shoot ropes? The best way is to ejaculate outside of your partner, leaving plenty of time and space for your semen to, ahem, go the distance. If you ejaculate inside your partner, you’ll never be able to tell if you are actually shooting ropes.
Recap: How to Shoot Ropes
If shooting ropes of cum is your goal, know that many men simply don’t produce the huge volume of ejaculate seen in porn films. However, you can try a couple of techniques to recreate a similar scenario in the bedroom at home.
