My psychiatrist-friend (he was my therapist, now retired) said that my depression (a few years back) lifted when I slept poorly because sleep-deprivation - to a point - can be an excellent antidepressant.
Welcome.QuoteMillions of American Males and possibly hundreds of millions more around the world.  After 2-3 years of search I have only 260 testimonies of person suffering of symptoms after orgasm. Prevalence might be > 1/10 000 (pure speculation).

It seems there are some issues to overcome then.
I am still mystified that I have experienced no symptoms this time around. Racking my brain, here are some possible reasons: 1. Dietary change (previously stated)2. Recent Relora use (did it change something?)3. Recent exercise change: High adrenaline/ intense cardio workout once a week (singletrack mountain biking)4. Sleep change (I am doubtful that this could bring total relief)5. Unknown factor
NakedDynamo,Just to add to what Demografx said....I think it's very possible to accurately describe POIS in a way that others would see this as an urgent condition worthy of immediate attention -- and have a more general audience interested in our experiences. In fact, after Waldinger's paper, I believe filmmakers started to make a documentary in Europe, although something fell through (at the time -- not enough people came forward with POIS, not enough money.. ?). So yes, this can be done... what you're hoping for is entirely possible. But it's not easy. It requires a lot of dedicated work. We'd need to treat the project like a full-time job, and several of us would need to collaborate "full-time" for a period of months. Even with this, we'd face a lot of rejection before we got cooperation. (Just like a good actor would often have to make many auditions before his talent is recognized).Are you up to it? Are you that dedicated? Because many people come to the forum with a lot of enthusiasm for various projects (double blind testing, etc.), and are surprised we haven't done this or that. But within a week their energy fades away, and weeks later they have basically disappeared.So yes, by all means, tell us your plans, ask for help (I'm sure many would be willing to contribute in at least small ways -- e.g. reviewing letters...), and so on. But don't expect it to be easy. You'll need to be really dedicated to see great results. Setting up a timetable might be a good first step.
I've experienced two new POIS symptoms over the past six months that I want to share.- Runny nose- SneezingI've never had physical POIS symptoms for 15 years. Now I've developed two.It feels like my body is becoming very sensative after orgasm.By the way, this tread has become a work of art by the people/artists that have created it. I couldn't fully express my graditude.
