Hi, I'm 28 years old and my penis is not as sensitive as it used to be. The area in question is the section on the back of my penis where the head meets the shaft. For years this was my most sensitive part, now I can barely feel anything. I don't have any STD's and I'm not on any medication and am generally very healthy. Could it be from too much masturbation?

Is there anything I can do to reserve the damage? Supplements, creams, etc?

Thanks.

I did see my Doctor (should have mentioned that in the original post). He said he can't find anything physically wrong with me and thinks it's in my head. I respectfully disagree with him.

Do you mean the bottom or the top of the penis? The bottom of the penis beneath the urethra where the head meets the shaft is commonly the most sensitive area of the penis. The only think I can suggest is abstinence for a few weeks and then giving it a go.

Hello,

I have the same problem. My penis feels very little to nothing during sex. I used to masturbate a lot and I think I may have done this to myself so I try to masturbate as little as possible. Now during regular sex, I find it very hard to reach orgasm and many times while the girl is going crazy, I'm just thinking about my schedule for the next day, cause I simply feel nothing. Doctors don't seem to help much with this sort of thing. My doctore sent me to take a few tests that were design to test if I have the sense of touch down there, which I do.

I try to explain to him the problem isn't that I can't feel my penis. Cause I can and I also feel my penis in action during intercourse, however it's pleasure I dont feel from my penis during intercourse. Which means I literally can have sex for hours with no problem other than the fact that only one person is enjoying it all. So please, if there is any pill out there available over the counter (or even with a prescription) to treat this issue, let us know. Dont tell me to see my doctor as I did and got no where twice.

Most guys worry about reaching orgasm too fast during sex, how I wish that was my problem.

thanks

No you don't. I as many guys that post here suffer from PE and it is a very frustrating problem.

No Sensitivity is worse than too much.
Not being able to reach orgasm due to a lack of sensitivity is the worst. My partner and I have sex often and I have the problem of not being able to finish.

It makes her feel like she's an inadequate sexual partner but I have to explain to her that it's me that is the problem. It has lead to a lot of intimacy issues and overall has strained the relationship. The whole point of sex is to reach a climax and if I can't do that, then really there is no point to having sex.

You think not being able to orgasm during sex wouldn't be extremely frustrating? Well it is, for myself and my partner. How do you think it feels when your really into someone and during sex they love it but ultimately get frustrated because you cant ejaculate glance I think you should rethink the situation. For PE there are ways to combat it, as far as I can see there seems to be nothing for the flip side of the coin. It is a VERY frustrating problem also.

So, any solution please let me know ... I'm going to cut out masturbation for a while see if that happens... its always been the same though... since i was 16!

I never said your situation wasn't frustrating. I was pointing out the fact that your post seemed to think that having PE would be better. I have yet to find a "cure" for PE.

The way I read your post was that you were making light of PE and those of us who suffer from it.

From what I see on this message board, more guys suffer from PE than your condition - there is a whole 66 page thread supporting this. Please don't make light of PE and say that there is a way to combat it.

Good lord, an attack by someone on the other side of the fence reading a post that he should even be reading in the first place.

I suffer from delayed ejaculation/insensitivity and I'll tell your right now that I'd rather have PE. AT LEAST YOU CUM.

Guys who suffer from premature ejaculation have a lot more options to help them--far more that we do. They have antidepressants (Lexapro slows down PE by almost a full minute), the squeeze technique (proven effective technique), desensitizing lotions (okay, not proven), and two options that no one ever mentions: masturbated beforehand and/or wear more condoms! Condoms, devices PROVEN to slow ejaculation, are RARELY ever mentioned. Why not just wear four of them? If you are so sensitive that four condoms won't help, then I don't know how you function during the day rubbing up against your underwear and legs!

What choices do we have? One, foreskin repair--which doesn't even apply if you are uncut in the first place!

The poster wasn't making fun of PE in the slightest, all he said was that he wished it was his problem. That was NOT a cue for you to jump in and add your (less than) two cents. You don't see US going over to your boards and saying, "Gosh, you shouldn't make light of our problem; you don't want that, Heaven forbid!"

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'd rather cum in a minute than spend three hours and not cum at all. ANYONE with a brain would choose cumming over not cumming.

Use different techniques
Some guys masturbate like eating fast food, you have to change the technique maybe stimulating the glande of you penis at times, and not touching the shaft will help you, do not do the death grip thing this is a killer,and abstain for a while like not every day thing this will help.
Also, if you put warm compresses in the penis, will help, sometime in winter guys complain of less sensations, because they are in the cold weather, a pair of long warmies will help with that, also sleep in the nude and change to boxes, the less the penis rub against the clothing the better brieves are killers, boxer are friends. Trie other masturbation techniques will help a lot, emai me and we keep this conversation going in private if you want.

No Sensation
I thought i was alone in this and it appears there are a lot of us with this problem. I will try your suggestions as I desparately need to try and resolve this issue it is extremely frustrating. I am 50 and I have found this problem of no feeling is getting worse. I can stimulate myself on occasion but even that is not happening most of the time.

Shea Butter and PC excercises
Try shea butter apply it to the gland each night. After 1 month you should notice a marked improvement as the shea breaks down the keritinzation (sp?) of the gland caused by the wear and tear post circumcision. I had same problem and this really has solved it for me.

Also try PC exercises 10 sets of 50 daily which will really rev/amp up your orgasms.

Exact problem
I am currently 47 and suddenly developed the same problem when I was 41. It was sudden so it has nothing to do with masturbating too much or not altering the technique as some people suggest.

When I am aroused and not touching my toy it feels all ready to go, it feels as sensitive as it should at that point. However, when I actually start to masturbate the sensation is not getting through, my best description would be its like having 4 rubbers on while masturbating.

Again, this was sudden and I have seen my useless doctor. I have waited 3 weeks and it certainly is better but not at all like it should be.

loss of sensation in penis
This lack of sensation has started for me (60+). Great for satisfying my lady partner up to a point, but then we both want a climax. Part of the problem is finding the right position to get her tight on me. Going at it when things are loose and slick seems to cause an anesthetic effect on my penis so even a tighter squeeze later has less effect. Too much masturbation is not the problem. As for the vacuum cleaner suggestion, you might go easy on that cure -- not all vacs are created equal. As for shea butter, I'll need to research that one. If I find a solution, I'll try to post again.

I feel for you all men.
I am 25 and I go through the same problem.. I thought it might have been related to a back injury

But I wouldn't know.. A year and a half ago i injured my lower back.. pulled a muscle or something and i couldnt move or anything and then i started having back pains allot.. my back went out allot.. .. I also noticed that my penis in the (glans) started to loose sensation.. I c an feel cold.. I can feel a needle poking it. or something. but I cannot feel the sensation of a feather stroking the glans.. I cannot feel arousing sensation. yet Ic an feel hot or cold water.. my glans looks rubbery kinda.. dry.. and discolorated allot it feels like having 4 rubbers on it too.. I had allot of bowel issues too and i got worser over the years..

during sex I couldnt feel it right and it would hurt too.. it would feel oddly wrong when I thrusted my penis into my wife.

Every time I pushed in. the sensation of the walls stroking the glans felt horribly awful and painful.. Like if something was squeezing the inside of it and made it feel like wanting to pull the hell out of there.

It got so bad to the point i had erection issues and soon I was not getting natural erections anymore.. I couldnt even feel the blood pulsing through the glans of my penis which mind you was so sensitive that it would keep me horny for 12 mins with out touching it.

I have some form of ED I wouldnt doubt it but I Think it has someting to do with my medical condition of my back and possibly a tumor in my neck. Or something I keep telling my doctors that This is not getting anywere and one of my doctors said they could not find out what was going on so he told me that I should just seek counseling that its somethimg im prolly going to have to life with.. "WHAT THE HECK?"

I wanted to cut that guys Penis off.. SORRY I dont mean to be graphic but He really needs to see how I feel. I know he has a wife and two daughters and a son.. Ages 4-9.. I want to have a family. I cant even keep my erection during sex because i dont feel the sensation at all..

I feel really bad for all of you guys as the feeling is soo mutual.. So many doctors pull countless amounts of money out from our pocketbooks and say "we cant figure it out there is nothing wrong" Or "its all in your head"

The heck with that!

I am so pissed right now I am trying to find ways to sue that guy for malpractice..

Im suffering from some form or neuraphty..(Spelling)..

That its really slowing down my bowel movements and my penile sensation..


Im soo pissed off.. my penis even turns blue at times.. becomes cold and contracts and pulls up againts my pelvic body.. I mean seriously even when i stand up all the time.. ITS Always cramped and hurts like hell and after masterbation when I sometimes every three days manage to get it up.. Ejaculate.. it hurts for a entire day!

I also have some PD.. Pryonies Disease and what not.. but ive always had some curving of the penis and it never Distrutped my preformance.. It started hurting after a while on th left side bit it didnt go freaking numb..

Again. I say this.. Theres houndres to upon thousands of males out there that suffer from this kind of problems in some point in their life..


THERE IS NO heck in way that even at a young age! at most health!

Should loose their ability to enjoy making beautiful love to their partner/spouse!

Especialy at age 24.. I Feel like I am 50 years old ( NO age discrimation sexualy) and that something like this for ED develoups at that kind of age.. Most of the males at that age have troiuble around then but even then.. when healthy.. Ive seen males as old as 60! Still going at it..!!!!

Its the medical system too.. I am a very poverty lower class living civilian and I cant afford medical insurance.. the docs even told me they cant do anything else for me till I get approval..

thats not fair..

what happened to the old days when.. Doctors even came to you to do physical exams for free?

this was back in like what 1920's?... society has changed so much these days.. mainly for worse.. but there is some good that came out of things in life.... I just wish Doctors.. would really show love and care about their patience..They should put themselves at the client's shoes.. .. And think ".. how would I feel if i was in this person's situation?"....

Instead of being self centered and cold at it sometimes..

Doctors shouldn't become doctors to make money...

its because they really want to help people who are less fortunate ... that need medical care... because every person that is alive out there.. Should be given the chance to equal living Happy joy!

Men I must say.. I pray for all of you and hope that you all find answers..

I have no shame guys.. Im openly here to talk with any of you and I look for the same answers..Lets share them all together.. us men shouldn't have to suffer anymore :/...


Much love.. and peace..

EJ.

Don't worry ED is soon over!
Hello EJ I'd like to talk to you about this and your problems. I am a hyper-condreact and worry a lot, I also suffer from anxiety and stress. I go through a lot if pain and torments that aren't currently recognised publicly but will be this year. I have loss of feeling but what remedied it was holding the bass and for 20mins slapping the head against my thighs and massaging it. This stimulates nerves and also forces blood to vessels possibly depleted of blood. I also recommend taking L-Argenine or Nitric oxide substances and exceeding regularly.. Exercises that involve much movement and agility as this improves blood circulation, immune system functionality and nervous system responses. Don't be afraid.. Trust me you will ALL feel happy if you do this no matter how severe nerves repair themselves and nano-technology and constant meditation and positive thinking will also aid you. Must not strain or pull at your penis as this kills nerves and damages vessels but will heal again given the correct vitamin supplements and diet. Don't be afraid, your anxiety further increases this problem as erectile dysfunctionality is mental ALWAYS (If genitalia or nervous spinal chords are undamaged). It can be remedied even if it is a spinal problem.. I suggest you all practice breathing techniques and becoming more closer to your genitals, play with it as if a child. Massage, slap the head around and cream him. Treat him as a pet not a clump of meet dangling between ur legs. Trust me.. You will all be fine. Just try some Horny Goats Weed and L-Argenine.. Relax and watch sexy ladies and maybe porn, but don't masturbate. Observe your penis from time to time and love your little friend as he is a part of you forever.. (Unless you meet a girlfriend you cheat on who's a butcher) God bless you guys and don't worry.. No problem can't be solved. If we can repair sight and replace organs we can get a healthy feeling boner again. Loool

Not sure how much this will help any of you but i thought i would drop it in here just in case. i had an issue like some of you with being able to have sex for hours before finally reaching orgasm and this is what i did. i talked to a sexual therapist not a doctor. doctors have no idea in this area as some have you have learned. it wasnt expensive and it helped alot. my situation was some what in my head (brain). you get certain images in your head from porn and your imagination when you masturbate. so i would refrain from watching porn and when i had sex i would concentrate on the previous images from the porn and focus on the sensations in my penis and this helped a great deal along with not masturbating much. but still i could go for awhile before getting off. i had a friend that got a few penis piercings and said it made him extremely sensitive. so i went with the jacobs ladder ( 2-5 barbells on the under side of the shaft) since i was told it was the most gratifying to the woman. couldnt have sex for about 2 weeks but waited a month just to be safe and wow it feels amazing. i can still go for awhile but it feels great the whole time and after being able to go for so long its almost now to where i can control when i orgasm and its great. extreme yes but well worth it

Less sensitivity is NOT caused my frequent masturbation. It is caused by the drying out of the head of the penis. When a male is circumcised, a large percentage of pleasure is lost. Why? Because, the head, normally an internal organ is externalized forever, due to the removal of the foreskin. The body reacts to this loss by developing an invisible layer of dry skin to protect the sensitive mucous membrane, which is your head.(as you get older the layer thickens, blocking pleasure and causing dissatisfaction and frustration). Normally the head of the penis should be dark purple, but on circ'ed men it is a light to medium pink. To reverse the consequences of circumcision pull over the remaining foreskin over your penis, tape it there 24/7 , and over time the head will be more sensitive. This will take a few months or more to perfect!

Circumcision is all to blame, do some research. There is no real necessity for this surgery. Teach your children to wash, don't cut off an erogenous tissue that aids in sexual function!!!!!

It can be reversed, not a comprehensive cure but rated at 90% or higher. Google foreskin restoration to find out more!!! Being less sensitive is is something that ALL circumcised men face. I noticed a difference in sensitivity as early as 16!!!!!!, reverse it now by restoring, boycott circumcision. it is an unkind and unnecessary cut!
