Male Masturbation/sperm bank


What happens at a sperm bank?  Do they do anything to help a guy ejaculate?

At a sperm bank, a male goes alone into a donation room which is sometimes called a masturbatorium.  There is probably a sink so he can wash his hands.  Some donation rooms are fancy and include computer access and video and a cot, but others are simpler and only have a cheap plastic chair.   Sperm banks for donation often supply adult magazines, but this is probably not the case in a doctor's office.  There you might have to masturbate in the same bathroom where you give a urine specimen.

After a male is finished and ejaculates into the cup, he puts the cup through a door in the wall and cleans up and leaves.

You can search the Internet on the term masturbatorium to see what some of them look like.

I write from the point of view that masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary to sexual health. I am able to answer questions in all areas of sexuality.


I am the author of the web site and have been answering questions about sexuality (especially masturbation) from both males and females for over 13 years.

I have a Ph.D. in a field unrelated to sexuality from one of the leading educational institutions of the world.
