2 questions

Recently (last 2 months maybe) I have found sometimes when im in the shower I cant masturbate, I can get an erection but my penis has the same sort of sensation as if I have just come (like it wants to 'recharge'), I usually dont bother cos it hurts a bit but once I managed to come by getting myself more aroused. I masturbate about every 2/3/4 days, I am a bit overwieght and have a bad diet, im also on anti depressants that I have been on for over a year, for the first 2 weeks or so it was harder to ejaculate but it soon went back to normal. Im 18.

I also have a semen phobia I think, I read in a faq somewhere that it was fairly common, I even heard about one of tom greens friends having something like it after his girlfriend blurted it out on air lol. I always think it is horrible and disgusting and smelly! and will feel bad if I cant wash it off in the shower and make myself clean again! how common is it and what could I do to get rid of this?

Welcome to the Healthboards Marky!

The antidepressants may have something to do with your ejaculation problems. Most of them do have some sexual side effects. Talk to your Doctor about this and see if he/she thinks this is a problem they can correct.

You stated this happens in the shower. Do you masterbate in other places, if so does it happen then also?

I've heard of this phobia you've asked about. If I remember correctly in some cases it delt with "****-phobia" also. (Not implying you feel this way, just saying what I remember.) I don't know how common it is nor have I read anyhting in here about it. But I would guess it's treatable just as other phobia are.

In the meantime learn as much as you can about semen. Think about what bothers you and try to apply that to what you've learned. Give you a head start on overcoming this little problem.

Re: 2 questions

yeah could be the case but I think most side effects are supposed to go away after about a month or so, I heard of someone having other tablets with the anti-depressants so he didnt have an ejaculation problem.. I dont think I'll goto the doctor its just a minor inconvience sometimes, sometimes its fine like today!
I only masturbate in the shower, cos I like to be totally clean (i shower for about an hr lol) I think if I did masturbate in other places and was turned on it would be ok! I think I'll try going on a diet, need to lose the wieght lol.

Nope not **** phobic, something thats wierd is I sometimes fantasize about giving head. I reckon knowing fully about semen would help alot thanks!

On a different note, I have just learnt this new word "smegma" that everyone seems to be talking about on here, If anyone knows "Red Dwarf" you'll know that "Rimmer" is always calling everyone a "smeg head" surely cant be a coincidence!!!

Re: 2 questions

I am female, but I do have much experience with antidepressants. If you're on SSRI's like zoloft, paxil, prozac, or celexa, they have a tendency to cause sexual side effects in men and women. Sometimes if you can handle a lower dose, then it'll take care of the problem or you can take drug holiday with permission from your doctor. Other antidepressants like effexor and tricyclics may cause sexual side effects. It's one of those things that you'd have to discuss with your doctor. The two that are least likely to cause sexual side effects would be Welbutrin and Serezone. I've tried both, but had problems with other side effects that never went for me. I'm on zoloft now and I've had no problems. It's very individual when it comes to side effects and antidepressants. You are right, some side effects will go away after time, but if they do cause some distress or disrupt your normal daily activity, you need to talk to your doctor about it. Sometimes they can combine other meds to help counteract the side effects if the meds you are on are indeed working for you. There's a book I borrowed from someone else and it's called: "The Antidepressant Survival Guide". I forgot who it's by, but it's a book that will help change your life style and diet so that you can get the optimum benefits from the antidepressants. I just started to read it recently. Anyway, I just thought I'd put my 2 cents in about that.
