My wife and I are getting received the 1st Pfizer Covid vaccine tomorrow. In L.A.

Hope this bodes well for resuming the *Liberos portion of the 2021 POIS Research study in L.A.!

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

Nice, congrats on the vaccination! Just curious, what do you mean by the "Liberos portion" of the study? Is there another research organisation taking part?

Clues, the POIS physical testing portion (Orgasm measurement, blood work, brain, etc.)  is taking place at Liberos, LLC, a laboratory in West L.A. founded by NORD’s POIS co-investigator, Dr. Nicole Prause.

OK, so Liberos does the physical testing, but who does the analysis and writes the papers etc? I thought that was Liberos as well. Just asking out of interest. Thanks. :)

Clues, yes, you’re right, Liberos & Dr Tierney Lorenz will do the analytics and writing together. Thanks for pointing that out!

I'm also a bit annoyed the study did not progress at all in 2020.

The study could have been done with mask (FFP2/N95) wearing requirement and it would have been perfectly safe.

At least that's how the covid summer 2020 was in Germany :-(

Dr. Nicole Prause, Founder, Liberos, LLC

One of our POIS
Scientific Researchers



Dr Prause is POISCenter-funded NORD researcher/co-Investigator (Dr Tierney Lorenz is PI
[Principal Investigator] )

Dr Prause with Sex Positive Me covers the  latest science on Orgasmic Meditation, what POIS (post-orgasmic illness syndrome) is, the physiology of orgasm, and the physical threats to female scientists who try to conduct research in this area:

berlin1984, thank you for this, I asked
Dr Lorenz and Dr Prause to help me respond to your concerns - - which I’m sure reflect those of many other forum members - - and this is what they said:

”We were regulated by Los Angeles area laws regarding COVID, which prohibited laboratory research with (possibly) immunocompromised patients.

L.A. was conservative, but we also had very high infection rates, which have still not been addressed well. L.A. was not the only area of the country stuggling, of course, but it was not a risk we would want to take with individuals affected by POIS.
 
We understand (and share!) the frustration, and are actively monitoring the infection rates as well as vaccination, to see when it would be safe to re-start in-person recruitment. “

Highly unlikely. Ties to UCLA. I don’t see Dr Prause uprooting her entire LA-based practice.

Suggestion for Dr. Lorenz:
IL-8 in seminal plasma (sIL-8) could be measured to probe for inflammation of the male genital tract.
https://sci-hub.se/https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23611586/

Sent.

From Dr. Lorenz re Muon’s suggestion:

“Thanks, Demo! I will look at that article. We are already planning on looking at several pro-inflammatory cytokines of the interleukin family, but it is good to see what is being done in this area as the research changes quickly.”

California aims to fully reopen the economy June 15 -

Today’s Los Angeles Times headline

https://tinyurl.com/2mfd2rcw

I sent the above to our POIS Research Group. They were very pleased to receive it.

As we all know, recruiting volunteers for the 2021-2022 POIS Research Study in Los Angeles at the Liberos, LLC laboratory has been put on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions in L.A.

Now we finally can see significant progress!

The 2021-2022 POIS Research Study funding from The Family Foundation - - that augments the NORD POIS grant funded by POISCenter members - - is to cover running 100 participants through an experimental protocol with measures of hormones and immune markers before and after orgasm.

Demo has been so kind as to confirm with the research team that the family foundation fund's additional tests will include inflammatory markers such as cytokines. This is important as inflammation is suspected to be the culprit in several POIS symptoms such as headaches, brain fog, joint cracking, and can help determine if autoimmune disease is a root cause.
