I would Just Like to say I think the Reddit- IAmA is a great way to get attention. A lot of people use Reddit daily and some posts get tons of feedback.

As for some possible Username I like the idea of being Eye Catching.

"ImSoSexyItHurts" Is a really good one, it also adds humour which I like. Some other possibilities I thought of Are:

-SickAfterSex
-FluAfterFellatio
-SexMakesMeSick
-PornMakesMePuke

and Some Ideas for IamA
-IamAvictimOfPOIS
-IamAllergictoMyself
-IamAVitctimBySex
-IamAllergictoSex
-IamAVictimOfaRareDisease

Tell me what you think :D
Symptoms: Brain Fog,  Nausea on 2nd day, Muscle/Joint Pain, Runny Nose, Premature Ejaculation, Fatigue, Depression.

Hi MrMoonJr!
Thanks a lot for taking time to contribute your thoughts. FluAfterFellatio made me chuckle - that's good.

I like IamAllergictoSex. That might elicit a wtf reaction and get people reading. I guess the drawback is we don't know that's the case for sure and part of the purpose of the NORD grant is to get to the bottom of what is causing pois once and for all.

I think it could be a fun experience to be the POIS reddit guy and it might be quite liberating to talk to some randoms about our condition.

Hopefully we'll get some more suggestions and thoughts. If you think of anymore, you know where to write them! Thanks again!

Hey! Just a question, if people are going to donate, lets say friends or family, do they just go to the NORD website and go through the same process we would?

Hi MrMoon,

ANYONE can donate. He/she would use the same process that any of you would -- through the website.

Also, if someone would rather not use the website donation page -- for any reason -- a check sent by postal mail is fine (a check in American funds).  Many of our donations do come in by check.

For usernames

"Allergic_To_My_Semen"
"Allergic_To_Orgasm"
"Allergic_To_Jizzing"
"Allergic_To_Dat_Ass"
"Sex_Denied"


man i feel goofy. We need to catch up on the latest internet memes involving sexual humor in particular.

Another thing to Keep in mind is everyone on these sites is extremely pro-masturbation and pro-porn so anything that makes us look like we are against porn or sex like "SexMakesMeSick" or anything along those lines wouldn't turn out well for us. There are a lot of people out there who seem to have Sexual Exhaustion if anyone remembers how we contacted their group before. These people go around the net saying that masturbation and porn cause bad health effects for everyone. Thus the majority of people on these sites respond with anger whenever someone appears to be one of these people. I know this because before I had POIS I thought for some time that masturbation must make everyone feel the way I did, because of some ancient Chinese philosophy type thing I read about how losing the semen causes weakness so I went around telling everyone how bad masturbation is and I was basically crucified each time.

Looking at the other suggestions...
FluAfterFellatio might work. PornMakesMePuke wouldn't be a good idea for the reason I mentioned above in my opinion. I feel like the "I'm too sexy" thing is too old school and we need something newer to target the new generation. That's another thing to think about though is who exactly is our audience? We want guys who have money to toss around so we need to think about what kind of things would attract that particular population. If we use a name that is too sexually "dirty" we might risk losing more conservative types and females. In that case something generic, but eye-catching like AllergicToSex or AllergicToOrgasm might be a good middle ground to take.

Some good points re: sexual exhaustion, thanks Vincent Marcus. I agree when it comes to getting people to donate we don't want to be too light-hearted or sexually "dirty" as you put it. Its  a serious, life-wasting condition and we need to convey that. Plenty of posts on iama are pretty matter-of-fact but still get a lot of views. But a bit of humour/wittiness sprinkled on top to show we are human despite our condition and hook people in is probably good. Fewer people would want to engage/help someone who is negative all the time. I think just being matter-of-fact and open perhaps with a bit of banter where appropriate is more the way to go.

We need to get this on the road. Does anyone here want to put themselves forward to be our guy on reddit? As I mentioned, I'd be happy to but I'm going to be away for much of Feb with very limited internet access so I wouldn't be around to keep the thread going.

I think this is a good quote to use; Got it from poissufferer's post and tweaked it a littler i think we have alot of post that we use on reddit to use as topic title but we got to find.

I am guy who has lost 10 of my life, and I mean lost!".
- go on to describe how and why.
      - we can compile some of our stories here
                -  try to connect with people
      -  describe pois
- transition to how to donate money




I think we should do this quick before reddit gets desensitized to solicitations.  I can start an account but, i think there should be people who are not always fogged out like me to respond.

I think this is a good outline to work with.  I"l be thinking of what to add tomorrow...
Turmeric and Rosemary 30-45 minutes before orgasm for anti-inflammatory and immune support has helped me a lot. Faster and easier than niacin approach.

Thanks for making moves to push this forward guys. My time is severely limited by work just now - and some POIS mixed in at the moment :-/ I'll also try to do what I can in the few days before I go away for a few weeks. Here's something interesting: two very similar reddit posts or at least both are on the same topic.BUT -  one got 6732 comments the other got 23. Both were submitted 25th Jan. We can probably learn something from this. The one with lots of posts adds a bit more of a hook in the title and more detail in the actual post than the other one.
