martin kilgore asked the Naked Scientists:
   
I was one asked to authorize (when I was an insurance company RN) a series of treatments whereby a man's sperm was to be pooled by using a rectal gizmo to electrically induce ejaculation. Whenever I ask anyone who might know, whether or not that is a pleasant or unpleasant experiene, they just blush and fall silent.

Can (or will) you provide the answer?

What do you think?

Erm, well I think they may use something similar with our bovine and ovine (sheepy) pals. Maybe ewe should ask a vet.

Electroejaculation is a procedure used to obtain semen samples from sexually mature male mammals.
The procedure is applied for breeding programs and research purposes in various species,
 as well as in the treatment of anejaculation and ejaculatory dysfunction in human males.

Wasn't there something similar in a Woody Allen movie ?:)

it is used with some spinal cord injured patients also. I have never heard one complain, however their sensation is either dulled or nulled.. so they may not be the best group to ask.
