For a long time (about 20 months) after I was circumcised 21 years ago at age 39, I was unable to ejaculate or experience an orgasm regardless of the sexual context or duration of sexual activity. When I finally started to be able to ejaculate following a long period of sexual activity, as soon as ejaculation began, all pleasurable sensations ended immediately, and any further stimulation of my penis was noxious. A number of additional months after this I finally started to be able to experience, at least about 1/3 of the time, during the beginning of ejaculation, I was able to experience a little bit of the sexual pleasure I had been experiencing before ejaculation began. This situation has improved somewhat over the years, and I can now experience, about 1/2 the time, at least some sexual pleasure throughout most of the period of ejaculation. The rest of the time, however, all sexual pleasure ends as soon as I begin to ejaculate. Moreover, I have never been able to experience anything even remotely like the orgasms I used to routinely experience several times a day from the time I was 11 until I was circumcised.
This problem unquestionably has no relationship to any performance anxiety, any attempts to "will" a state of sexual resolution, or any other psychological problem. It is also clearly not drug or alcohol-related, not associated with a debilitating illness or spinal cord injury, and is not related to a decreased level of testosterone. With respect to the possibility of unintentional injury during the circumcision, it is worth noting that all of the tissues which I still have are just as able to perceive sensations as they were before the circumcision. What my anorgasmia is related to instead is the fact that the sexual sensations produced by the tissue at the tip of my foreskin became much greater and more important the more aroused I became (which I usually promoted when I was masturbating by stretching the skin fairly tightly at the end of each stroke), and it was these sensations which were primarily responsible for finally triggering an orgasm and ejaculation. Unfortunately, while I eventually recovered my ability to ejaculate, I have never recovered my ability to experience an orgasm.
I realize that my experience is quite different from that of most men following circumcision, but my total anorgasmia has unquestionably been a direct, organic consequence of my circumcision. I continue to be very unhappy about my inability any longer to experience an orgasm, and would be very grateful for any information that anyone may be able to provide as to the reason this may have occurred and a possible treatment for it. Since this is unquestionably an organic problem, however, it is clear that treatment could not be facilitated by services provided by a qualified sex counselor or therapist.
One of the more interesting sites I have come across recently is loveexpos dot org. They make a distinction between procreational and evolutionary orgasms or as they call them "Love Bursts." They teach people how to use evolutionary orgasms to heal bodies of physical problems and to expand one's mind - all with the use of Unconditional Love. Read people's accounts - they are really amazing!
