Rest assured, for the vast majority of guys, the sphincter and the whole issue goes back to presurgery sensations. I don't even think about
it during the day. I do pee more often than before, but our bladders are smaller. One nice thing, is that I pee like a race horse now. Huge, fast stream. I'm done in seconds....even faster than my 15 year old son! Most guys have small leaks that often don't even get outside the penis. You just feel urine in your urethra..but the leak is usually very, very small. Not enough to worry about
. Yes, the sphincter that used to
open to let out semen, now has to stay closed to keep urine in. You get that wave of horny hormones wash over you and *blip* you've dribbled a bit. You will learn to control that. Just urinate before sex. I have never ejaculated urine inside my wife, but with MB it has happened.
Trust me, these are all things that can be managed and ultimately have very affect on your life.
