Guy66, that's one of the 2 dubious advantages of our post-surgical condition. First, a little known fact back when we had the ability to have erections, that we can have orgasms without erections, and no ejaculations, therefore no mess..... In my situation, at 9 months, I have gained almost all of my sensation back, but am still totally impotent. I make do with injections. Here's the sweetner, the more you 'practice' the more you recover, so mutual foreplay or self-stimulation is good, the more the better. They didn't know about that in high school, did they?
There's a couple threads talking about these things on the board right now, in case you missed them. Makes good reading, if for no other reason than you realize you aren't alone with this, nor are you out of the norm. Could I suggest you make out a signature, detailing your journey so far, so others can be aware of where you are coming from when they read your posts? The signature function is in the Control Panel, Update Profile section, at the bottom.
