Yes, must be you mention that bring them here, Aladin, but we cannot know for sure unless asking them.
Thanks for your mentions there.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that the old Board « Investigation Areas : Organize Research Investigation Areas », which was the 4th, bottom board in the « POIS Cause/Treatment Discussions » category,  have been merged into the « General Alternative Causes and Treatments of POIS » Board.  No posts have been lost, they have just moved on this other board.

In a constant effort to make the forum cleaner and easier to browse for newcomers, it was clear that this board did not have a specific vocation, and most posts on it were about alternative forms of treatment, and alternative hypothesis about the cause of POIS.  As for the « Organized Research », we now have great threads on the « POIS Research » Board, at https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?board=22.0 .  In particular, the discussion thread about members medical results (https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2695.0 ) is a real group investigation area.

It is best to avoid having too much boards, so that good posts will not be ignored because they are hidden in a less frequented board with a confusing name.

Send me a private message if you have any question regarding this merger.   

Thanks,

Quantum

Cross-posted from Muon’s POIS
paper treatment summary:
https://tinyurl.com/y3q8ez6p



...If anyone wants to go through the 1000+ pages on Nakedscientist looking for cases describing treatment methods then be my guest, I'm not going to do that. Or perhaps some do remember POISers describing treatment/relief methods on certain pages, in that case dump the links here plz.


A Naked Scientists [aka TNS] forum search can be Googled easily: just put in the search term you’re looking for, and then “POIS” (for TNS’ POIS thread), plus the URL/link for TNS.

For example, if you’re looking for TNS posts that include testosterone, put this in the dialog box @ Google:

testosterone POIS https://www.thenakedscientists.com


(https://s3.amazonaws.com/images.seroundtable.com/google-cursor-focus-off-1314361450.png)




TNS is a valuable historical universe of
20,000+ POIS posts starting in 2007. I was the main moderator/administrator. Until “Daveman” and I split from TNS to create this forum, POISCenter.com. I am still the main admin at TNS/POIS, however it has become posting-inactive recently, although it’s still very useful as a repository with a wealth of early POIS history.

Important notice to all members :

The POISCenter forum is NOT an appropriate place for expressing your opinion about the legitimacy or not of the COVID vaccines, or expressing your political views.  There are zillions of other forums and websites to express your opinion on this, but POISCenter is not one of these.  Any member who will persist in this direction may subsequently see all of his posts having to be approved by the moderators' team before reaching the forum.  This would take effect without any further warning

We value the importance of keeping POISCenter a safe place for all members.  If needed, feel free to review the POIScenter rules and guidelines at https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=1.msg10259#msg10259 (https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=1.msg10259#msg10259)

Semen Desensitization for POIS - - Alert

Popularized by the late Marcel Waldinger, I have been increasingly concerned and alarmed about the basis of this technique.

Waldinger’s study claims that 45 POISers were studied.

I began with this forum in 2007 (in that year, the predecessor name for POISCenter.com was Naked Science Forum/POIS thread).

It took me years to see 45 POISers. WORLDWIDE. That is the basis of my deep skepticism: how could 45 POISers have been found to study desensitization: in only The Netherlands, a relatively tiny country. My impression is that many of the 45 subjects were suffering primarily from Premature Ejaculation (Waldinger’s specialty) - and not POIS

This is only one man’s opinion: me.

I encourage you to research this potentially dangerous technique (there is a possibility of a sometimes-fatal reaction called anaphylactic shock) - -  VERY carefully.

Personally, I would not recommend it.

As Limejuice mentioned, it has not been approved anywhere and Waldinger himself told me on the phone that promoting desensitization was questioned by his hospital’s Ethics Committee.

post edit - - none of the above takes away my deep appreciation for Dr Waldinger being the very first medical professional to publish an article in 2002 that first coins the term post-orgasmic illness syndrome: POIS!

…The injection site is the same as that in the video.

Refrain from “playing doctor”. If this warning is ignored, you will be banned from POISCenter. Your topic/thread has been removed. You have already ignored multiple moderator warnings about injection discussions, i.e., “playing doctor.”

Review the POIScenter rules and guidelines at https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=1.msg10259#msg10259

What are these links about?

It would help our readers to determine whether or not to open them.

Police/army suppression of civilians. This is a global takeover.

Is there any anyone from Australia who can confirm this?

They will be using a green pass in the Netherlands as of tomorrow for some shops/restaurants etc.

It would be nice to have an off-topic category to talk about these things. Does POIS research have a future when societies go to the drain?

muon: deleted your topic/thread.

It’s Off-Topic.

There are many websites/forums that will gladly accept your extraneous topics. This is not one of them. This has been discussed before.

I’m writing this from the hospital. Admitted to ER last night for “observation for ‘dizziness’ “, hope to be released soon.

The strange thing: my current POIS is…gone!!

Maybe the stress? I recently participated in a brief discussion here at the forum about this, in which “high anxiety” can somehow - - sometimes - - cancel out POIS symptoms!?!

Thanks, everyone, for being here. You’ve all kept me going in 2 very serious operations in the past: open heart 5-way bypass, and severe diverticulitis attack

Everyone: b_jim has been posting here since 2007! He & I started posting here at the same time.



hurray and I have been here at this forum since the Dawn of Civilization ;D


To clarify the above posting about
Global Moderator Limejuice, and Forum Members  b_jim and hurray: POISCenter.com began around 2011, with a runaway group of moderators (including me) and all key forum members - - from the
Naked Science Forum(NSF)/POIS thread - - which
began in 2007

• POIS Forums Oldtimers Reunion Thread (back to NSF days):

https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2892.0

We broke away from NSF because they would not permit fundraising for our POIS Research Study.

• POIS 2021-2022 NORD RESEARCH STUDY:
https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=3006.0

But the continuity from NSF/POIS to POISCenter.com is there and it was a smooth, seamless transition. You can still see and search many (20,000 NSF/POIS posts!) valuable postings there:
