TMI Tuesday - 11/13

20121112-090524.jpgHello my fellow TMI Tuesday junkies. Movember is in full-swing. I can’t wait to see those Mo’s a little later in the month. In the meantime here is a set of VERY fine TMI Tuesday questions from longtime blogger and frequent TMI Tuesday question contributor virtualsin.wordpress.com

If you don’t know what Movember is all about see previous TMI Tuesday posts or click here.

20121112-084724.jpg1. Some men who have been treated for Prostate Cancer are unable to get an erection. If they were treated with surgery, the usual reason is nerve damage. They may have success with a penis pump. Have you (or your partner) ever used a pump? Did it work? Was it a turn-on or a turn-off?

No, thankfully I've never had a partner treated for prostate cancer.  The pump is an interesting device.  I have no idea if they work or not, but if they did, then I don't think they would be a turn-off.  I'd think that if you're in a great relationship, it's about the journey and not the destination.  Working together to do the things you want to do is never a bad thing and I'm sure that with patience and understanding, things could work out just fine - and it might also draw you closer to each other.

2. If they were treated with radiation, the usual reason [for the erectile dysfunction] is damage to blood vessels. They may have good luck with Viagra or or one of the other impotence meds. Have you (or your partner) ever used Viagra, Cialis, or similar? Did it work? Any interesting side effects? Any 4-hour erections? Tell us how you made use of that ;-)
I have no exposure to my partner using Viagra or any other medications to achieve erection.  Having read this question to L however, he's suggested that he now knows what he'd like for Christmas!
3. Some men may opt for a penile implant. See http://www.urologicalcare.com/advanced-ed-treatments/types-penile-implants/. Do you have experience with a penile implant (as owner or lover-of-owner)? Did it work for you?
Again, no exposure to a partner with a penile implant.

4. If they were treated with hormone therapy (e.g. Lupron Depot), they may also lose all libido. I can’t think of a good question, but if you have a story, please share.
No story, but I think it's a difficult thing when one partner loses all libido.  It is critical, but not easy to maintain the intimacy between you, even if it doesn't include sex as you once knew it.  It's important to evolve and expand your repertoire together to accommodate changes in capabilities and desires and to find things to do together to fill the gaps and maintain that connection between you.

5. Some men diagnosed with Prostate Cancer change their diet or avoid certain foods. Did you ever change your diet for health reasons? How did it work out? How long did you stay on the diet?
Not for prostate-related reasons obviously, but I've changed my diet for other health reasons a number of years ago.  I've been able to maintain that eating plan and it has worked out well - my health has greatly improved because of it.

6. The prostate is a sexual organ, and treatment of the prostate changes the sexual experience. A man who has had his prostate removed does not ejaculate at orgasm. How would you react to a total lack of cum?
I've only ever felt inclined to taste one man's cum (L's), but I liked it. In spite of that, if L had a problem and was unable to ejaculate, I don't think it would make that much difference to me.  I think it's important to be flexible and understanding of each others' issues and when you are, things just work out.  As long as he still enjoys the act of having sex and we can share that enjoyment, then life goes on. 

7. Although removal of the prostate reduces the intensity of orgasm in the pelvic region, some men report orgasmic feelings in other parts of the body, some describing a “whole body orgasm.” How cool is that?
That is cool...and seems only fair.  If someone has to go through the experience of dealing with prostate cancer and all the life-changing difficulties that go with it, it seems to me that they deserve to have such a positive side effect of all that treatment!

8. Do you think a man treated for Prostate Cancer deserves a blow job? If yes, please email Virtual Sin aka SinnerMan…
Very cute, SinnerMan!  Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to email you to set something up, but I can say that every man - prostate cancer survivor or not - deserves to have someone to perform cock worship and give them mind-blowing blow jobs on a regular basis.

  1. Great answers, especially #6. We feel the same way; while I'd be sad to lose the ability to ejaculate and Jill would be sad to lose the ability to taste, play with, or otherwise experience my cum, we'd probably be sufficiently happy for my good health that it wouldn't be an issue.
