Absence of ejaculation, delayed ejaculation

Anejaculation is a relatively rare symptom. Men who suffer from anejaculation can obtain a lasting erection, but it usually does not lead to an ejaculation. According to Helen Kaplan, anejaculation is due to an ejaculatory overcontrol, which results into an involuntary inhibition of the orgasmic reflex.
