How much semen is produced at ejaculation?

The average man produces 1.5-5 ccs (one quarter to a full teaspoon-full) of semen at ejaculation. Usually, the amount is less than a teaspoon, but it can be larger is a man hasn’t ejaculated in awhile.

Semen is composed of many different substances, including many of the body’s chemicals. Even the breakdown of food products makes its way into semen. Sometimes, the food a man eats can affect his semen. For example, asparagus drastically changes the odor of semen.

Medicines, herbal supplements, caffeine, and alcohol can also change the properties of semen, most notably sperm count.
