My wife thought it was hilarious when I told her I had to make the sample in the pathologist's office toilet. My pathologist actually insisted the sample had to be made on-site. What was even funnier was the container they gave me to use was very narrow so I had to aim very carefully. I wasn't about to ask for a wider container
I'm still waiting for the results though. I thought I'd have them by now.
I've never had sex without a condom before (I'm 41 BTW) so I'm actually not sure what to expect. Should be interesting. Its going to be like losing my virginity all over again View Thread
I had a vasectomy (non-scalpel) last October. I think I have similar symptoms to you in some ways.
Its like your testicles don't get the release they used to when having an orgasm so you aren't completely satisfied. Resulting sometimes in sore testicles afterwards.
I'm definitely hornier as a result of this. I wake up (almost always) with an erection like I'm a teenager again. (I'm 41).
Orgasms (to me) also feel a little different now. Not weaker, just different. The weird thing is the volume of semen I ejaculate seems to have increased quite a bit (and not decreased as I would have expected).
I have to masturbate a lot to supplement sex to keep myself satisfied as my wife's sex drive at the moment is nowhere near mine.
To those telling her to wait the original poster is 26 years old NOT a teenager ! She is an adult woman. Its her choice. She is someone who has decided she wants to have sex and simply asked for advice on contraception. Its clear she has thought this through carefully.
forensicfreak, I hope everything goes well with your first time. Its something you'll never forget. Mine didn't go too well (I was too nervous), but it gets better over time. Good luck !View Thread
Drinking a lot of water helps my semen volume a lot. There are suppliments than apparently help that too (eg. Lecithin). Men (myself included) dont drink nearly enough water and this is definitely one area we feel it. I've also found it increases the intensity of my orgasm, but that might be my imagination.
Lots of water definitely works for me though. I'm not sure if the effect will be the same for you, but it certainly won't do any harm trying.
Its MUCH harder to ejaculate a second time. In my case I struggle to ejaculate a second time especially if the first orgasm was an intense one. I normally take over half an hour to be able to ejaculate again. Often at that point you start getting tired and just want to stop.
As Gail says its got nothing to do with you. We often just can't ejaculate again. Believe me we really want to. Its just not possible. <sigh>View Thread
As you say its not intefering with you work or life so I don't see any problem. The moment it crosses that line, then it will become a problem.
The only health problems you can possibly get is chafing (I'm a man. I get that from time to time). Your not getting that so it not a problem either.
The fact that it can be used for pain management/nausea is definitely a benefit. Getting pleasure and health benefits its definitely a win-win situation I also see masturbation as the best stress reliever out there.
I actually fantasize about my girlfriend when I masturbate so I have no guilt at all doing it. She actually takes it as a compliment.
