Question Emission versus Ejaculation

Can anyone explain these two concepts to me, please?

I've searched the web but did not get the difference.

Thanks so much!

Emission- phase when sperm moves from testes upto prostatic urethra.

This phase is under control of sympathetic nervous system. The hypogastric nerve

Ejaculation- phase when sperm moves from prostatic urethra to the outside

This phase is under control of visceral and somatic nerves. The pudendal nerve

I dont really agree about the ejaculation part. Its controlled by the sympathatic nervous system not the somatic... although both are part of the PNS... Remeber it like that [ Point- Parasympathatic ] [ Shoot - Sympathetic ]...Good luck
