I will ask the POIS Research Team. Thank you, Aladin!

Demo;
 
Good question, and one we don’t have a great answer for. We were waiting for things to settle down following COVID, and now we are also waiting out the series of protests across LA (as I am sure you are aware). We will apprise you as soon as we are able to confirm that it is safe (and considering the curfews, legal) for participants to come to the lab again.

The Kinsey Interview Series: A Conversation with Dr. Nicole Prause, POIS Researcher
https://blogs.iu.edu/kinseyinstitute/2020/07/16/the-kinsey-interview-series-a-conversation-with-nicole-prause/


Excerpt:

Lehmiller: Please tell us a bit about one study you’re working on at the moment. For example, what research project are you most excited about right now?

Prause: Dr. Tierney Lorenz and I received a grant [funded by POISCenter.com] from the National Organization of Rare Diseases to study Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome (POIS), which is thought to primarily affect men. This enabled us to collect blood and saliva biomarkers before and after orgasm, providing the first robust glimpse into the inflammatory effects of physiological orgasm. We hope this not only clarifies the nature of the POIS disorder, but the unaffected, control participants also will provide extremely unique data. I believe this is this first standardized protocol of climax collecting biomarkers of inflammation before and after climax. We also are capturing brain and peripheral physiological measures to further characterize male orgasm. I already have those data in women and expect they might challenge aspects of Masters and Johnson’s “Sexual response model” that has remained largely untested, despite its popularity. There are so many unique pieces of data that will come from this project, we cannot wait to see the results ourselves!

This is fantastic news. The problem we have now is we have no way to quantify POIS scientifically. If they can find some abnormal biomarkers that are associated with POIS then they will be able to quantify it. Once we can quantify it then we can test various treatments and see their effects on said biomarkers. Of course what biomarkers are abnormal will also give great clues about which treatments should be tested first.

Sent your remarks above to POIS Research Team. They liked/agree with what you wrote.

I filled out the  research study online questionnaire. It informed me that I qualify but I didn't see an option to click on 'new client' to arrange the telephone call. I only saw an 'existing client' log in option. Is the option to register as a new client still functional?

From The POIS Research Team:

“Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The study recruitment is still on hold while we wait on our IRB to finalize their approval for the expanded project that was made possible by the family donation. Once that is completed, we have some small administrative details to work out on getting those funds into an account we can access. In the meantime, however, we do want the website to allow folks to register so we can contact them as soon as we are able to start scheduling – so we will look into what’s happening with the scheduling app.”

Thanks for the update, Demo.

We all know that scientific research takes time, and it's really exciting to know where we are currently. I looked it up, and discovered that the IRB is the "Institutional Review Board".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institutional_review_board

They take care of the ethical implications of scientific research on humans. It's good to know that the research volunteers are being fully looked after  :) I can't wait to see the outcome of this research!
