Effects of penile implant surgery on ejaculation and orgasm.


Thirty-five patients who had received a penile implant were interviewed to assess their pre- and postsurgical ejaculatory and orgasmic experience. Prior to surgery, most men were able to experience ejaculation (71%) and orgasm (80%) even though erectile capability was impaired or lost completely. The implantation of a prosthetic device did not interfere with ejaculation or orgasmic functioning. Two patients who lost their ejaculatory functioning following surgery did so because of advances in their illnesses. Five men who had been non-orgasmic earlier reported having orgasm after surgery. In these cases of psychogenic orgasmic dysfunction, the penile prosthesis helped overcome the psychological barriers to this function.
