What you're describing is called a "dry orgasm"---the ability for a male to orgasm without ejaculating. Well, there are different ways for a male to have a dry orgasm. It could be because they have not reached puberty yet, meaning at this point they have never ejaculated. There is no damage done here, it is completely normal prior to puberty. It could be because there have been multiple ejaculations, and their body has used up all the semen stored---no damage there as well, your body will produce more semen and have it ready within a few hours. Then, it could be physical force which stops the ejaculation, which seems to be your case from what I've read. If you're squeezing your penis hard enough to stop the ejaculation, you are closing your urinal pipe which prevents the ejaculation---but after letting go of the penis, it will immediately leak out. This kind of ejaculation prevention can cause urethral stricture, which is a narrowing of the urethra from inflammation and causes medical complications with urination. If no semen leaks out after you're done with your orgasm, then it may be that you're putting pressure on your perineum (the space halfway between your testicles and anus), which closes your urethra and prevents the ejaculation from coming out of your penis even after letting it go. It's not ABSOLUTELY harmful, but it can be. It can cause retrograde ejaculation, where your semen is ejaculated into your bladder (where it shouldn't be). You can tell if you have this by urinating after your orgasms and seeing if your urine looks milky or cloudy---it's the semen mixed with your urine, and it's not medically harmful but can cause infertility. Pressure on the perineum to stop ejaculation can also cause long term damage on the nerves and blood vessels in the perineum, which causes pain and/or discomfort in your perineum. Also, pressure on the perineum to stop ejaculation can damage the ejaculatory ducts and vas deferens, as well as other ejaculation-related parts of the body, which can also cause infertility. You can also get urethral stricture (narrowing/inflammation of urethra) from the pressure on the perineum as well.
All in all, it just depends on what you're doing exactly to stop the ejaculation, and how your body parts feel afterward. If there is no milky/cloudy urine after orgasms, and you feel no pain or discomfort anywhere, it shouldn't be such a huge problem as to have concern for your medical health. Many young men and adolescent boys use this method (putting pressure on the perineum to stop ejaculation), though it's controversial with medical doctors because of all the risks I typed in the first paragraph---and these risks do happen. So just be careful, and pay attention when your body is trying to let you know something is wrong.
If you have any more questions or concerns, as well as any further elaborations on your first post, please don't hesitate to reply.
