Male Masturbation/start anew

Question
once a man ejaculates, how long does it usually take for it to revitalize, if you understand what i mean? i'm sure it varies, but give me an approximate
thanks

Answer
The time you refer to is called the refractory period.  In a teen, it can be as little as five minutes.  As a male gets older, it will take longer after ejaculating before he can get erect again.  An adult male should assume it will be at least half an hour.  To learn more, see http://www.healthystrokes.com/mast.html.
