Hello,Customer and thanks for your question.

Yes, it is possible for a man to reach orgasm without ejaculation, as these are two separate processes and one can occur without the other. However, more times than not, they do happen at the same time.

Orgasm is the release of sexual tension that has built up to an apex, although intensity may vary, depending upon many physical and emotional factors. In contrast, ejaculation is the expulsion of semen from the penis.

Some men who can have an orgasm without ejaculating, have learned how to control/flex their pubococcygeal (PC) muscle during sex, preventing the fluid from being released, but before reaching the point at which they would normally ejaculate. Men can learn to isolate this muscle, which is located in the pelvic area, by stopping urination midstream, and they can strengthen it over time with repeated tightening and releasing exercises, just as a woman can do her 'kegel' exercises to strengthen her vaginal muscles before childbirth and to make sex more pleasurable. However, be aware that this is NOT a reliable form of birth control, so always use protection.

Sometimes a man who orgasms without ejaculation (called a 'dry' orgasm), may be experiencing an underlying medical problem, so a consultation with a physician would be advised.
