Why can women be embarrassed?
It is possible that the woman is embarrassed for the following reasons:

- Because before ejaculation, the man could contain a small amount of sperm in the urethra, from a previous recent ejaculation, which could reach the egg and fertilize it.
In case that the partner wants to use interrupt intercourse as a contraceptive method, it is recommended that the man breathes between each ejaculation, with the objective of eliminating the spermatozoa that are still present in the urethra.
