Hello Reuniting/Marina,Thanks for joining in on our thread. Actually, your site was one of first that I found, before this thread got off the ground. You have certainly done a lot of work compiling different articles and information.In my experience, there was not a difference in my POIS symptoms when I first started dating my current girlfriend. So, the 'new partner'/'old partner' theory doesn't seem to hold in my case, at least. I have found no difference in orgasm with 'new partner', 'longtime partner,' or masturbation. It seems more tied to the mechanism of orgasm itself, rather than the partner or lack thereof.In some ways, the POIS group seems like it could provide a good way to figure out the 'sexual let-down' mechanism that you think it found in most people. If our POIS symptoms are a more extreme version of what happens in most people, it might be easier to figure out the general biological mechanism at work by studying us. Thus, there could be a wider and more extensive benefit to science/medicine/psychology to be gained by focusing on causes or cures for POIS. In other words, in trying to convince researchers to investigate POIS, it need not be presented only as an ailment that affects very few people, but it could have also implications for (subtler) symptoms that may affect the broader population.
We have been collecting information about post-sexual satiation "let down" for over a decade, although we did not know it had a name (POIS).
