A rather personal and embarassing question/problem, but one that I
hope can be answered by a researcher.

A 16 year old male is having orgasm problems. When masturbating, there
is no orgasm. He ejaculates as normal but there is no orgasm and
basically it does not 'feel good' as mastubation should.

Please can you look for sites offering any information on this. I have
had a look myself and have found some sites on people not experiencing
an orgasm but the information was not really relevant to a young (16
year old) male.

I know the best thing to do would probably be to go to a doctor but I
want to find information on the internet about this before and if I

I am based in the UK therefore sites and information based in the UK
would be ideal but not essential

Hello Lynxptc~

According to some sources, masturbating too frequently can lead to
lack of orgasms, but typically men have trouble reaching orgasm with a
woman, not while masturbating. ?Inhibited male the
inability to achieve orgasm during intercourse. Men with IMO often
manage to ejaculate and reach orgasm by masturbation but not with
vaginal intercourse. Some therapists believe IMO stems from fear of
intercourse, an unwillingness to perform on demand or anxiety about
not satisfying a partner. A man may find his orgasm inhibited because
he fears loss of control during intercourse, because he's put off by a
woman's touch or, in some instances, because he does not want to have
sex with a particular woman. This type of sexual dysfunction is more
difficult to treat than premature ejaculation, often requiring
intensive psychotherapy.? (?Male Sex Problems?

However, the continued lack or inability to reach orgasm, during any
sex act, is called ?Anorgasmy,? and may result from a variety of
causes. (See Medicine Net: )

Stress can cause anorgasmy, as can anxiety, guilt, and other
psychological issues. Sometimes, those suffering from anorgasmy are
just worrying too much about trying to orgasm, instead of just
relaxing and enjoying themselves. (Sexual Health:

Anorgasmy may also be caused by fatigue and depression. The use of
some medications, drugs, and/or alcohol can also cause anorgasmy. (For
a list of some medications that may cause anorgasmy, see ?Are your
medicines disrupting your sex life??'s%20Health&storyid=118289

Anorgasmy is typically treated either by eliminating physical barriers
(like drugs, alcohol, etc.) or by treatment with a counselor or

Nonetheless, a thorough checkup with your MD is an excellent first start.
