Just a new update on the Amazing Technicolor Dreamjourney with MUSE.
For our third try last night I decided to incorporate the following advice:
1: Take full dose of Cialis a little while before inserting MUSE. (Did about
30 mins before).
2: Do some pre-plumping with the pump and put on a single, not too tight ring -- only
pumped to 50-60%.
3: Warmed up the MUSE package for a few minutes (on top of the bedside lampshade).
For the first ten minutes after insert, started to get some added firmness, but seemed like it was going to be the SameOld, SameOld and not get hard enough for actual use. Was standing for most of this time working/stimulating.
It looked like the ring was starting to constrict off blood supply a little too much so I took it off and after a minute or two, WHOOSH, the Alprostadil must have diffused in one gush and we had an erection just like old times -- more than adequate for penetration etc etc etc.
Cut to next scene ... (visualize relaxing and having a smoke in bed -- not really). So, one or all of the three items above might have made the difference. I wonder which it is? I hate to waste a MUSE trying to figure it out.
Also, the effect lasted well into 1.5 hours of very usable erection, even when lying flat trying to ignore it (yeah right). Even after 2 hours (and deflating slowly) if I got up and started walking it would harden back up again. Of course wife was long ago, fast asleep. Next time have to really plan ahead so we can have a lot more of the allotted time available to do whatever needs doing. And hey, NO refractory, recovery time either after orgasm -- when's the last time anyone had THAT happen (without help)?
I am thinking maybe 1000 mcg MUSE might be a little too strong also (but it could be the Cialis kicking in helping too). Too bad I can't cut the pellet in half to get more shots out of the prescript
Hope this might give people some additional ideas to try.
