POIS is a profound psychiatric condition:

Not accepting myself.
Being divided.
Afraid of others' opinions.
Not staying in the present

PERFECTIONISM had a big role in disturbing my mental health.

Shame. Shame. Shame.

You guys must investigate how much shame is rooted in POIS.
I'm ready to get into polemics with anybody about the nature of POIS.

Shame might be a factor in your POIS but don't project it onto others.
Nothing I say is medical advice. Follow at your own discretion.

It’s usually more helpful to express opinions as personal rather than generalized  (for example, in lw’s post):

Personal:
[Shame seems to be] “rooted in my POIS”.

vs.

Generalized:
[Shame seems to be] “rooted in POIS”.

10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

I agree. I must have written the root of my POIS. But if POIS is so individual, what's the point of finding a general cause?

If not, then there must be people like me who have severe psychological distress which manifests itself in physical symptoms. I believe these types of people are plenty and I'm writing for them. The POIS which drains so much energy, brings anxiety and extreme stress - springs from trauma/shame, and must be fixed with the help of a professional.

I can't speak for everyone but I believe every POISer must check in with a mental health professional and find out if there are psychosomatic reasons like me. If there is, a tremendous relief can be achieved.

I must reiterate how much psychological work I had to do to remove POIS: It wasn't like I told myself
"sex is okay", "masturbation is ok" and things magically cured themselves.

I had to talk to myself. I had to sense that deep down I always thought I did something wrong. I had to concentrate on how much I hated myself because of my lack of control. And still, after some time I would try again to check if there were any improvements.
I had to discover what POIS state told me - You will ruin yourself, you'll get laughed at, you'll be unproductive etc.

I was so stressed that it basically felt like some kind of bad drug - a dizzy state, being very very anxious etc.

The book that most helped me was Gestalt Therapy Verbatim by Perls but I think modern Psychotherapy has better tools.


I don't care you guys believe me or not. I had tried so many so-called cures in the past and they had similar effects that were described here: Garlic, Apple Vinegar, Antihistamines, Gargling, Diet, and Antibiotics. Everything helped me a little bit but for their reasons, I will explain later (Tips: Psychosomatic stress on guts)

I understand that some POIS might have different cause but I truly believe that had similar cause as some of you and so you must listen

Many months since I started Psychotherapy

I didn't know I could improve on my POIS. Now it feels like heaven (after I ejaculate)  for hours. Then I go back to normal functioning.
