This goes in the category of "things I never thought I would ever talk about on a web forum".

I'm about 3 weeks post-RRP, and doctor's orders were to practice getting an erection and having an orgasm. So I've done it twice this week. I was expecting a dry ejaculation, but both times I was totally surprised to find that some urine spurts out during orgasm.

I'd never heard of this. Has anyone experienced it? And more important, does it go away after a while?

You're part of the club! Yes it is very common. Yes, it should get better. With good kegels and time, it might go away. But if you have a full bladder and are in missionary position, it will almost always leak. Keep **********. Some men find they squirt urine all the time. A condom takes care of it. Also, if you are on the bottom, it helps.

Many men find that at the first sign of arousal, they squirt a bit of urine. The valve that we are using to control the urine, is the valve that used to open wide at the first sign of arousal to allow semen to pass. The prostate took over the valve job. So, now that valve must learn to stay shut. Don't panic, it is probably not here to stay.

Had that the first few weeks after surgery. Has not been a problem since then. I think kegels probably helped the most.

You know if the GFMPH meeting had a Urine Ejecting Contest ....

Would give Pissin' Contest a whole new meaning and put em to shame.

I know I can do a 'jection at least 10 feet ...

Something to think about ...

If you are interested in doing your own urodynamics testing I have an area in the backyard that's covered in pee (pea) gravel. I put dayglo orange nails spaced at 6 inch increments so I can easily measure distance.
You enter the distance, and the height of your "nozzle" above ground into the excel program I wrote and it calculates the tip pressure using basic physics.

It's best to avoid windy days when doing this testing.

Sadly, the old timers here know I am not kidding.

It has been three years since my surgery and I have seen no improvement and I ejeculate urine with such force I can hit the ceiling with a good orgasm. Even if I empty my bladder before sex, I still will ejeculate some urine. My uro told me that urine is sterile so if you get some in your partner, not to worry. Just try telling that to a woman!

Yup this is the forum that talks about things other forums dare not!

Have sex in the shower is one option, either together or alone.
I was given my best orgasm since surgery while I was in the bath and my wife was not.
You also start to notice which rooms in the house don't have carpet on the floor (or does that fall under TMI)

A condom may not work if there is a large quantity or urine, it won't leak or burst or anything it will simply be to wet slippery etc. And don't forget fruit-flavoured condoms (for you-know-what)

And even though pee is not what you or your partner wants to see at the wrong time remember that fresh pee really is sterile. Try laughing at the unexpected and have a towel handy or whatever and allow for a bit of extra time for a clean up. There have been a few comments here from wives who have (secretly) admitted that they actually find it easy to wipe a bit of pee off themselves than a bit of semen.

Protect your mattress. We now have a flannel undersheet and then a flannel coated PVC waterproof sheet under that on just my side of the bed so as not to make life difficult for my wife, but I've found it's fine, even in hot weather: it doesn't make me sweat.) All that's needed is to be on the correct side of the bed at the appropriate time. (And a spare sheet is on standby on a bedroom chair, so that if we have to change the sheet there's no need to go rummaging about in the airing cupboard. And thus far it's been okay.

But I definitely get that tiny little dribble when first aroused, so I have also worked out a routine to not only pee before sex, but also to dash to the bathroom ever five minutes or so during sex and just have a fast pee in the bath/shower to keep everything really empty. (If you pee there you don't have to bother about aiming when it's all pointing the wrong way) and once we're done, then I worry about cleaning the bath etc.

Jeff would be much better using the shower for experiments. My shower has built in graph paper, 10cm/4in tiles along the floor and 6in/15cm tiles on the walls. And a lot warmer than standing outdoors, and less likely to scare the neigbours.

A year ago escaping pee seemed like it might be a big problem, but now it's almost insignificant. But the less the better., so keep squeezing the kegels and more.

16 months out from the op and I still ejaculate urine. Apart from this problem my continence is 99.9%. I still do pelvic floor exercises and hope that at some point the problem will resolve itself.
All the best from England.

I was 3 years in July. I have found that I always want to go to the restroom before any sexual activity. It has gotten much better though. It also seems like the harder the erection, the less chance anything is going to squeeze out. My wife still enjoys not having the old mess though.

Yeah, no one told me about the phenomenon and it scared me when it happened to me. At that time, I thought something was broken down there or the surgery was faulty and something wasn't right. I remember posting my situation here then and thankfully learned the same things you are learning from these replys.

I find it doesn't happen if I refrain from beer and empty the bladder several hours before. It gets better over time.

Well, thanks for all the replies, this really helps a lot. Now I won't be going back to my surgeon to ask him if, pardon me, I'm seeing urine at the strangest times, and did you accidentally connect tab A to slot C instead of slot B?

English Alf, I'd love to know how you manage to interrupt sex with your wife every 5 minutes to go to the bathroom, but I guess that's way too graphic even for this forum :-)

Don't know what I'd do without the HW forums...

I had my TURP 11 years ago and I still ejaculate large amounts of Urine with great force. The first time it happened after my surgery urine hit the wall. I also leak a great deal of urine when I see or think about something stimulating, which can be embarrassing when a 67 yr old man has the front of his pants wet from arousal. At least I'm not married so I don't have those problems to contend with.

I find it helpful to know the technical jargon for embarrassing problems. That way you can at least sound erudite as you complain. The word "aphasia", for instance, is endlessly useful when you block on a common word. You simply stop in mid sentence and say "Sorry. Bit of aphasia. Give me a moment; it will pass." That way you will sound more educated than senile.

The word for this thread is "climacturea" as in "So sorry, my dear. My climacturea seems to be acting up again; can I get you a mint?"

When I am insecure about the spelling of an uncommon word that my spell checker doesn't know I frequently type the word into Google to get a consensus from the universe about how it might most-often be spelled other places.

As well as confirming my spelling of "climacturea" Google also offered this study from Weill Medical College of Cornell University Sexual and Reproductive Medicine Program, Division of Urology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York.

Rick - Welcome to the forum:
I too leak urine during sex/orgasm. (I thought it was spelt "climacturia") and since my previous post on this thread it has got worse again, as has my continence in general.
Peter mentions a study about loops/rings and I think one type of variable tension loop is called the "Actis Ring".

I also found this report of a study of the problem
Not all the details are at that link, but the following link to another forum contains more of the text (and I note it also says that most men reported having penile skrinkage after surgery):

(had to edit post due to problems with pasting links and pasting text)
