Not well known: I am not aware of exact studies on this, but I have had several clients obtain semen samples for analysis by collecting from non-lubricated latex condoms during intercouse, and then transferring the semen to standard plastic collection cups. In all such cases, motility of the sperm appeared well maintained.

Consult physician: Don't worry about the "quantity" of the sperm, unless there is none. A single drop is enough for conception purposes. You don't say if the penis gets flaccid before getting the orgasm or your total intercourse time is 5-10 minutes. You need to see a physician to evaluate this and other issues to find out the cause and prescribe a treatment if necessary.
