Insensitive Penis

I have been experiencing problems with penis insensitivity. As it is,
it is very difficult for me to feel anything in the glans; however, I don't really
have a basis for comparison. I will elaborate on this as I porivde
some history.

For the majority of my life, I masturbated by rubbing my penis against
the bed. I learned this method as a child of age 7, I believe. I am
now 22 and have been practicing it since then. Unfortunately for me, I
did not realize the harm involved in masturbating this way.

About seven months ago, I bought a Fleshlight (a masturbation tool
that mimics a woman's vagina) and discovered that my penis was
severely insensitive. I could only manage to induce an orgasm through
the missionary position while using it. Even then, I experienced very
little sensation while doing it. About a month later, I embarked on a
short period of abstinence from masturbating, which totaled about six
and half days. When I finally started masturbating again, I used my
hand for a little bit, which felt great. I decided to switch to using
the Fleshlight, but I did not use the missionary position. The
sensations I experienced were exquisite. I had never felt anything
like it before. The next few times I masturbated, I noticed that my
sensitivity decreased until I was back to where I was before.

5 months later, I'm still not doing any better, although I've not
tried the abstinence 'trick' since. Anyway, I am able to achieve and
maintain erections very easily. I'm also able to orgasm quite easily
as well. And the orgasms tend to vary of intensity, but they generally
leave me satisfied. The feeling in my penis tends to fluctuate, but it is always insensitive.

The only other problem I have that may be related
is occasional frequent urination and nocturia, but I already went to a
urologist over it, whom told me I likely have prostatitis. He also
said that some guys are simply insensitive, but I feel that he is
wrong about it. There's nothing normal about being unable to feel the
splendor of sex. And it doesn't explain why I felt those great
sensations after that period of abstaining from masturbation.

I do not drink, smoke, or take medication. I've only experienced one injury to that area in my entire life and it healed very quickly. I do not have diabetes.

Does anyone have a clue as to what caused me to lose those great
sensations after the abstinence period, and why I continue to suffer
from an insensitive penis?

ps: I was circumcised as a baby, for your information.

  • I have similar problem with you with penis insensitivity, though I know the medical reason for that: I had orchitis (severe testicle infection) and is thought that it damaged not only the testicles and prostate, but also some nerves.However, I was able to regain SOME (not entirely) sensitivity to my penis by using testosterone replacement therapy. It's not the testosterone itself, rather than its derivate dihydrotestosterone the right hormone responsible for the sensitivity of the glans penis. The dihyrdotestosterone also causes growth of chest hair in all men and baldness in many. If you don't have chest/stomach hair, and no early sign of baldness, here is your answer ;-) and you may treat yourself with synthetic testosterone just like me.
