: Should I worry if I am producing less ejaculate?

Sheldon Marks, MD : Young guys seem to be obsessed with themselves as far as how they perform sexually. Ejaculatory volume and force seems to be something that they're very proud of, and as men get older there's changes going on within the prostate gland and the volume of actual fluid can decrease. And the intensity and experience can change. Now they still feel the same, the orgasm is unchanged, but there will be less volume and less force to it and that just is part of natural aging.
