Anejaculation: An outcome of prostate treatment that is not often discussed is its ejaculate. The vast majority of men after prostate rt will experience the inability to ejaculate or anejaculation, gradually increasing in percentage from 20% at one year to 90% at five years.Stember et al " 1204 ejaculation profiles of men following radiation therapy for prostate cancer" journal of urology 2010.

Yes this is normal Prostate is responsible for 85% of the juice that comes out during ejaculation. After radiation, ejaculate gets dry.
