Abstract

Thirty-fiue 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 76) and orgasm (80 76) euen though erectile capability was impaired or lost mmpletely. The implantation of a prosthetic device did not interfere with ejaculation or orgasmic functioning. Two patients who lost their ejaculatory functioning following surguy did so because of advances in their illnesses. Five men who had been non-orgasmic earlier reported having orgasm after surgery. In these cares of pvchogenic orgasmic dysfunction, the penile prosthesis helped ouercome the Psychological barriers to this function.
