No Blessing on marital relations? discusses a before blessing.
Why is there no after blessing for ejaculation?
Here are some reasons why ejaculation is different from sneezing
It occurs in the "nether regions", like the other asher yatzar activities
It involves substance moving from deep within the body to outside the body whereas the substance of a sneeze is not very deep within the body.

Asher Yatzar says "that if one of them were opened or one of them were closed, a person would be unable to maintain himself" i.e. the functions that we say Asher Yatzar on pose health problems would we not be able to perform them. Many people get vasectomies and are fine. So the blessing isn't appropriate.
