You're exactly right. The orgasmic sensations come without having an erection or even thinking of sex or being aroused by something that looks potentially doable.
For instance, I may just be working on a report for work, typing away, and then yawn. During the middle somewhere of the yawn, I begin to feel it, the sensation of coming down from a middle to great orgasm - this depends on the length and depth of air/exhale of the yawn. However, as you point out, there is no thought of sex, no erection (at least for me), and no desire to have sex, and no mess. I just feel sooooo good and I am calm, relaxed and as a result, a smile just appears on my face.
Everyone here in the office wants some of these Effexor XR pills but alas I told them that I seem to be an unusual case in response to them.
I want to add though, that even though Effexor XR has someway interfered with my ability to have an orgasm when I want to by right hand method, I am still able to have one but with more effort and patience. Living in today's world, where everything must be done right away, I can see how this can be irritating especially if you are use to having results in five to ten minutes. But I am actually liking the idea that I can delay having an orgasm and ejaculating as I think that is a good thing for my partner :-)
So I am not experiencing yet what other men have described as anorgasma, not able to have an erection, or the erection not being as hard as it was.
With Effexor Regular I did notice that I had no desire to have sex after a while. But I also had much difficulty achieving my own orgasm that I gave up and that did manifest itself as a problem for me that I wanted to get off of Effexor Regular. But the regular formula did achieve it's sought out use, which was to stop obsessive thinking and depression.
I hope that you too understand when I describe having these sensations, as it's good to know I am not the only one experiencing them.
