More a question of curiosity than anything as I assume I already know the answer to this one. (this is specifically about male anatomy):

I was reading some things based on work by Masters and Johnson, and it went in depth into the male orgasm/ejaculation. It said that the sperm is drawn into the prostate through contractions in the muscles, and then released at orgasm. This, presumably, explains why it is somewhat uncomfortable to stop sexual stimulation when close to orgasm, but would one do any possible injury to oneself if did so? I would assume that the body is not as fragile as that, and that I would have read warning on the subject, or something of the sort, but it is somewhat uncomfortable (at least for me). Anybody have a better idea then me on this one?

There's so cause to think that stopping or pausing causes injury.

In fact, practitioners of Tantric sex do it all the time, as often do men who are pursuing multiple orgasm.
