Abstract

Ejaculates were collected from 5 rhesus monkeys by penile electrode stimulation over a 6 mth period. The success of specimen collection was 97.4%, with all failures occurring in the first 3 wk of the study. All animals showed a conditioning response to the procedure which included occasional or frequent ejaculation without the need for using electric current. In short periods of time, a capacity for multiple ejaculations was demonstrated for all animals. Early complications of the procedure included urine contamination with stimulation above 45 V and small burns over 60 V. Stimulation over 45 V must, therefore, be avoided.
