I have an ED related question on what I experienced - I am 3 weeks out from my RARP surgery and currently have ED. A few days ago I experienced a dry orgasm but without an erection. It was strange & freaked me out a bit. Not saying that I wouldn't want to have an orgasm :). I had thought you needed to have an erection to experience one. Any similar experiences?

of course. I think we all start out that way right after surgery. the dry orgasm would have been weird soft or hard but it feels much better a few weeks later when you experience it again hard. In some ways it's like going through puberty again, just less messy.

Davidg & Southern Comfort,
Thanks for the feedback. It will take some time to get used to...

I was told before surgery that orgasms would be possible without an erection. I have yet to experience this. Instead, while I have had a few orgasms, on the whole I tend to get erections and no orgasms. Hard to predict what PCa will do next.

I use to have soft orgasms after surgery. After about six months I started to get erections right before I had a orgasm, no pills nothing. That is the only time I get a natural erection, kinda different.
