After discovering that I cannot have an orgasm (I was attempting to masturbate) I started to panic. Initially it seemed like a bonus 'have sex for hours' but that came to a crashing halt when a new lover began to feel inadequate. I could tell her often that it was the drugs but mentally that will never compute. So I experimented to see if it was possible with intense attempts. After 4.5 hours of watching porn and doing my best to get off, I reached a place where I had what I call and 'minigasms' it kinda feels like I've gotten off, but not quite
it kinda feels like I've gotten off, but not quite
. Initially I stopped after that then decided to try again. This time after the mini went off, it went off another 4 times and then full blown orgasm almost at regular strength but I was so tired from trying it was just a relief.

Then I stumbled onto a research paper that suggests that Viagra can help in this problem. I'll stop here and explain that I was never having an issue getting it up, it was OFF that was the issue. So I made many frantic calls to my doctor including sending him a link to the article, and all but begging him to give me a script (as I had a date coming up). He did. I was surprised to find that they were 100 mg pills. The study actually mentions MUCH lower doses. My doctor, knowing my metabolism knew that my body would probably burn through 25 mg / 50 mg in under and hour.

There was some fear at taking a dose that high but I figured the worse that can happen is I'd have some great sex, several orgasms then a trip to the OR because the damned thing wouldnt go away.

Had a good dinner with friends and family. Great talks. Fun storytelling. I was in a great mood when I dropped the 100 mg.
my girl put her hand on my legs and my body responded with an erection (this is nothing new, I am special that way) for the rest of the ride it was kind of an up and down thing: I have a full on erection, flaccid, erection, flaccid.

Home undress I have an erection from sheer excitement that maybe I'd have an orgasm. Only a minor fear that it would be immediate and ruin the night. Erection was strong, and rock hard, and much appreciated and taken care of, but nothing.

And dosing + 2hours I decided to put another 50 mg into my system. Same sort of reaction: My hands got extremely warm and I still had an erection -- We try again. The best we can manage is a significant (15 or more) number of minigasms

. Both dripping in sweat like other attempts we give up after 5 hours. (I ALWAYS keep Gatorade and a snack next to the bed).

It is now mid afternoon, I am going to attempt masturbation and see if having the drug at a lower dosage (likely already clear of my system) will work.
