Hello, This is really a serious issue for me, I have been feeling really depressed lately because of this problem. When I ejaculate I feel no pleasure or orgasm whatsoever, everything building up to it is still pleasure but when I ejaculate there is no sense of release or orgasm. I have been having this problem for the past three weeks or so. I don't know what's wrong me. I am healthy, 22 year old male. I googled my condition and I found that its most likely to be sexual anhedonia. however I cant find any definitive answer as to its causes or cures. Im worried if its a permanent thing or temporary. Can someone shed some light on this sensitive issue. thank you, I really appreciate your help

Yes, ejaculation and orgasm are two separate processes. Just as it is possible for men to orgasm without ejaculation (it happens occasionally to me, but it's not something I can control) it is possible to ejaculate without orgasm.

It used to happen occasionally to me, but since I learned the signs - not being into whatever was happening, so barely having an erection etc - I now just stop doing whatever because I know the end result won't be with the effort.

Do you still enjoy the arousal and plateau phases of your sexual response?

Orgasm intensity can change over time, and it's likely that they will get better even if you don't do anything about it, but have you considered talking to your GP / a sexual health clinic? They can investigate any possible causes.

Yes, I still enjoy arousal and everything building up to the point of climax, but the climax itself is not pleasurable whatsoever. I haven't considered any medical help as of yet, as I am trying to find out much as possible before I do go to my gp. I read on wiki that this condition maybe caused because of vitamin B12 intake. I don't know how reliable this is (after all its wiki). I have been taking multivitamin tablets lately, which consists of vitamin B12 among others. Do you think that's the route cause?

Dunno. I am deeply suspicious of 'it's this vitamin' claims for things like this, but if you are already taking the tablets it's fine to think they will help.

It looks like a good excuse to see how long you can stay plateauing then!

Don't really understand what you are getting at :/ Anyway, do you think conditions like this are permanent? I have stopped having sex/masturbating for a couple of days now, giving it a rest for a while. if I still have the same condition, I will definitely consider going to my GP. Seriously guys, have anyone experienced similar conditions to mine, and have good advice to share? I am really depressed and worried at the moment.

The second paragraph? 'See how long you can avoid coming' would be another way of putting it.

No, I meant 'how long can you enjoy masturbating / partner sex before ejaculating', i.e. getting more of the bits you still enjoy.

Having said that, not ejaculating for a while may help.

Have you been suffering from stress at all lately?

(Besides the stress from what you just described of course?)

My uncle who is a GP said that stress harms things like Sex drive and stuff so I wondered if it may have been that. I can't really think of anything else.

Maybe, im not sure to be honest, I have been quite busy as of late because of all the submission deadlines ive had in the past month or so. Although I have been working non-stop with a lot of pressure, I wouldn't say I was really stressed/depressed at any point.

Sure does, that's exactly what it is, I had mine tested in my early 30s and my T was in line with a man in his 80s! I got no treatment whatsoever because i'm "still in range" which covers up to 100 year old.. Even if you were 18 & your T result was that of a 100 year old they'd still tell you that you are in range. NHS should be ashamed of this treatment. When it's a woman going through menopause they hand over drugs no problem.

Hello bro. Have you found out what the problem was yet ? I’ve been having this condition too for almost 2 years already I believe, and it also depresses me so much. Please share some information that you know. Thank you 🙏🏻

Pleasure dissociative orgasmic disorder or orgasmic anhedonia may be caused by psychologic issues such as depression or drug addiction, or by physiologic issues such as high levels of prolactin, low levels of testosterone, use of medications such as SSRI antidepressants and oral contraceptives, or chronic medical problems such as spinal cord injury and chronic fatigue syndrome.Make sure you're sleeping well. Avoid coffee as that tends to contribute chronic fatigue. When taking vitamins, make sure to EAT them versus taking pills. If not eating it, make sure the vitamins are liquid for better absorption.
