General Discussion / Back onto the subject of sleep
« Last post by RocketTN3 on January 17, 2018, 02:36:36 AM »
I have to say my sleep pattern has always been sporadic and in trying to nail my sleep problems once and for all I watched a few videos on youtube. One in particular contained some interesting information about how a poor sleep cycle is linked to many different forms of emotional disturbance, but in particular there is a claim at 56:47 of this video of a lecture from Dr Stasha Gominak who says that sleep anatomy overlaps the anatomy of orgasm. Here is the video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj8FTWCb010

Isn't this interesting?

This is something I didn't know, so please watch the video in full because if you are like me and have always had a very poor circadian rhythm your whole life, perhaps this may be of more importance than you ever realised to your pleasure responses?

I've always suffered from lethargy and poor motivation, even before the onset of my EA, but my sleep even as a young child was not disciplined. Many late nights on computers and television. I wonder if it may be responsible for my EA?

I feel that the subject of sleep and it's importance has been touched on here in a fringe sort of way, as people have reported feeling a difference in sensation from either sleep deprivation, or changing their wake/sleep cycles. Obviously nothing substantive can be taken from these small anecdotal experiences, but does it not warrant further investigation?

General Discussion / Supplement issue
« Last post by Rhadamanthus on December 12, 2017, 09:02:41 AM »
I've really appreciated the suggestions re. potentially valuable supplements offered by many posters on this forum, and I've checked out many of them.

Some of them seem to have made minor contributions to intensifying pre-orgasmic sensations. But, so far, none has increased the quality of my orgasms very noticeably.

However, several different ones (sorry, I know this is unhelpful, but I can't be sure which, since I've often used them in combination--and haven't made good notes. :( ) have yielded unpleasant side-effects.

In many cases, I've experienced dryness of skin, redness, and itchiness. Dryness and redness have been evident on my penis itself, while dryness, itchiness, and redness have been evident at multiple points on my body. (For instance, bizarrely, the skin immediately behind my knees has frequently been dry and itchy as a result of taking various supplements recommended as helpful with EA). (I believe the culprits have included Yohimbe, GABA, and Testosterone Up.)

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks for checking in. I'm not sure whether what I'm describing as "painful" and what you're recalling as "hypersensitive" are necessarily different. Maybe I described things unhelpfully.

In any case: what puzzles me is the lack of erotic pleasure associated with frenulum stimulation. I presume there's a neurotransmitter issue here as in other cases discussed on the forum. But I'm not sure how to address this.

Interesting point @gdop. Maybe the author would write about our problem, if made aware of it.

As for brain stimulation as a possibility - it seems like almost anything could be possible in the future. I've talked with Dr. Stewart Meloy, who has used spinal implants and electrostimulation to cause orgasms in women. You might say that's the more direct method than brain stimulation.

Still, for anyone suffering with EA, it would be a wonderful development.

I haven't had this experience, and I'm sorry to hear about this change for you.

I used to get hypersensitive after ejaculation, but that hasn't happened to me for many years. And it's certainly not "painful" as you have described it.

I neglected to say that I've had positive mood benefits from sleep deprivation too...perhaps cortisol is the missing link. For me, taking a bunch of cortisol doesn't do it- it seems it's when I can trick my body into making some naturally...

Hi there! I also thought my orgasm issues were related to my addisons but I've been treated for it since I was 13 (and am 34 now). Untreated, addisons will kill ya, so I am on hydrocortisone for cortisol replacement and fludrocortisone for salt replacement....however, the hydro can't mirror physiological levels so idk if that's part of it. The adrenal glands control sex hormones, so I would think that would cause issues. However, all my endocrinologists and the internet says thst if you take dhea and replacement cortisol, you should have  normal sex life...i think a research study was done thst says the same, so I'm not sure.

But I agree about the stress thing...maybe that's the connection as it gets my body to make cortisol naturally which maybe is needed for orgasm.

There's gotta be a connection, just can't quite put to all together . Despite the replacement, I can't help but think there's a connection

 He handed me an information leaflet on the Viberect, which is a medical stimulator for ED treatment. In addition, he had my testosterone levels checked again – the results were normal.

If they've only checked your testosterone, they're pretty unserious. There are plenty of hormones to check for sexual dysfunction.

Did you try the Viberect? I bought one years ago, but it didn't do much for me. I wouldn't get ejaculations. Wouldn't even get erections from it.

But I see that since them they've come out with a suped up version intended for guys with severed spinal cords trying to collect sperm for artificial insemination. Would be interesting to see if even that didn't do anything for me.

I didn't try the Viberect – the reviews were not very good so I left it!

Yes, I was disappointed with the hospital consultant. Not sure where to go from here.

The problem for me is that the stimulation of my frenulum is no longer a source of pleasure.

I’m part of the roughly one quarter (if something I read ages ago is accurate) of guys for whom contact with the glans during ejaculation is painful. I still experience pleasure from the stimulation of the glans before ejaculation. But traditionally for me the pleasure of orgasm came when the frenulum was stimulated at the time of ejaculation.

No more.

The stimulation of my frenulum, formerly a source of exquisite pleasure, stopped being pleasurable sometime in 2016. This had happened once before—lasting for a couple of months—several years earlier.

So I’m no longer experiencing a key portion of the pre-orgasmic pleasure associated with stimulating the penis. And, because the only kind of physical stimulation my penis can tolerate during ejaculation is stimulation of the frenulum, because stimulation of the glans is painful at this point, and since the stimulation of the frenulum no longer yields pleasure, ejaculation is pretty damned anhedonic.

Has anyone experienced this kind of pleasure loss in particular?
