Im sorry to ask this personal question but you mention the ability to have multiple orgasm with or without an erection how does this work. As I do not attain full erection and can only manage orgasm very infrequently. And mostly on my own
Hi Colleen, I am not an expert but this is my understanding of what is involved. There is something called the refractory period that men experience after ejaculating. This essentially shuts down any further stimulation of the genitals preventing another orgasm for a period of time that varies significantly among males. Women either don’t have this refractory period or it is very short which enables the further stimulation of the genitals and multiple orgasms.
As far as how I found out about this comes from having a wet dream a couple of months after starting HRT. I dreamed that I was fully female and “fingering” myself. Given my age I probably touched my prostrate from between my penis and scrotal sac and it was a blissful way to wake up. I was curious because I had definitely experienced an orgasm without an erection or ejaculation. A little bit of exploration and it happened again…and again! Since then I have discovered other ways that also work and yes, sometimes that refractory period kicks in but I little patience and it soon passes.
My advice is to be gentle and do not be afraid to explore your own sexuality. There are so many different nerve endings and nooks and crannies that I never knew existed because “playing with yourself” was considered to be “sinful” when I was a child. Like so many of those “rules” that one was made up for the purpose of controlling others. No one else controls your body so it is yours to enjoy as you prefer. The sensitivity of my entire body has increased since starting HRT.
Kind regards, Rowena 👩🦳
