I hate the fact to be always pessimistic here!
I'm also a pianist (used to be), we have now 3 cases playing piano! I can play piano in pois, and i don't think motor control is affected, however i lose tempo, feeling, and pleasure to play.
Motor Control.I remember Demografx saying something about playing the piano. I am also a pianist. I've noticed that my motor control is not affected by POIS. My playing technique is not substantially affected. Has anyone here noticed loss of motor control?
we have now 3 cases playing piano!
Demo, you say you are discouraged from playing the piano. I am too, when I feel symptomatic. But can you still play a scale quickly and without making mistakes?
Just as I suspected: Piano playing causes POIS!

I can just see it now, songs like "I'm So Tired" (actual Beatles song) or "I Love You But Let's Not Sleep Together" More POIS songs?:So Tired - Ozzy OsbourneTired Of Being Alone - Al GreenTired Of Being Blonde - Carly SimonTired of England - Dirty Pretty ThingsTired Of Sex - WeezerTired Of Waiting For You - The KinksTired Of You - Foo Fighters
It would have been interesting to understand why you have had this reaction with wellbutrin.
Also, why do you [Dr Matt] refer to yourself as "Dr." Do you have an MD or a PhD? And can you tell us more about your POIS history?

Perhaps activities that you can do with little concentration due to a very high degree of practice (motor skills) are less badly affected than activities that require more creative thought/social ability/executive brain control?

My best success at celibacy has come when I framed orgasm always in my mind as "horrible and hateful" rather than "delightful though obnoxious." It's important to keep busy; to keep the mind from wandering. I can stay celibate when I work about 70% of my waking day, weekends included. If one is sure to go to bed physically exhausted there isn't much energy left for erotic thoughts or sex acts. I believe that if one thinks of sexual abstinence in terms of a fierce battle of life against death, not of a playful game of temptation and refusal with a guilty pleasure, his mind will not betray him, even in sleep. There's no way to fully avoid thoughts of sex, but if one doesn't let his mind grasp onto them and run away with them, he won't find himself regretting yet another orgasm.
Hi AllSearching the net because of a problem that has arisen. Not sure if what I have experienced falls into this section or not. Therefore please be patient with me, and hopefully someone out there can help with trying to establish what it is and what can be done about it.The other day sun shining etc. etc. everything was fine until orgasm, then nothing or at least I do not remember a thing, I had an orgasm, I got the tissues and lay back, but not a thing I remember. After about 5 minutes I was aware that we had done something, but couldn't recall a thing. Slowly some information came back right up until the orgasm but not after that.I felt generally bad, I had a headache but not splitting, my brain felt almost light headed, a strange feeling, which I do find difficult to explain. I feel/felt very tired have a lot of naps, and have slept well after the episode.It all happened on sunday and as I write this it is now 3 days ago, I still have the light headed feeling, my headache comes and goes. I have been to my GP who has discounted any form of TIA, which is good, but is sending me for more in-depth tests just in case.This is the first major event like this, although I do remember a while ago I had a similar event but it was only minor, and I just brushed it aside. We have had normal relations since that first time, and nothing until sunday whcih is far more majorI am not asking for a clinical diagnosis, but was wondering if anyone else has expereiced this and can shed any light on it.Many thanks for your time and attention, and look forward to your response.Kind regardsPhil
Phil, I actually don't think this is POIS. It sounds like post-coital headache.
Yes, we have [edit: seen headaches before], demografx.
Quote from: Counterpoints on 25/09/2008 03:00:25Yes, we have [edit: seen headaches before], demografx. I think that what counterpoints means is that i don't have it either. And I think that he is right. I am also just giving pointers to things that seem obvious in a larger context of dealing with post orgasmic symptoms.Because I sure have *something* that has always been there and will never go away.
Now for the realy unconventional question. (Many are not going to like this, but the question should be asked at least once anyway).What would be the result of suppressed homosexuality on dopamine and prolactin production?One would think that if you have sex with people you are not sexualy attracted to dopamine would be low and as a result prolactin would be high.
...symptoms of POIS are proportional to the intensity of orgasm. Less time between orgasms mean degradation of orgasm and less severe symptoms (it is contra-intuitive, but it is true).
Since ED drugs are so expensive, all of you may want to try a non-specific phosophodiesterase inhibitor like Theophylline.
