Insensitive Penis

I have been experiencing problems with penis insensitivity. As it is,
it is very difficult for me to feel anything; 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.

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've had the same problem for some time now. My research on this topic yields very little information but from suggestions on various forums it seems it is a result of the penis becoming accustomed to rougher friction than is experienced during normal sexual intercourse. The only recommendation that I have heard was to avoid masturbating roughly at all. I believe you have to get your penis reaccustomed to more natural sexual activity. At the moment, I'm trying to abstain as much as possible and trying to avoid masturbating with any unatural friction at all. Time will tell if this method works. Perhaps there are ointments as well that will help the flesh heal, but I don't have any idea about this. If you had any further results, I'd love to hear from you.

  • Hello.I too was circumcised as a baby due to tight foreskin.I too learned to masturbate by rubbing my penis against the bed. But I eventually started using a pillow instead. But still I gradually stopped masturbating that way and using my hand instead.The loss of feeling for me was abrupt and at the time I wasn't using my pillow at all. I was just going to start masturbating with my hand when I noticed my shaft didn't seem to be there at all. Only the glans provided some feeling. Everything below was insensitive.It's been 3 years and I'm 20 years old now. I really don't know what to do since so much time has passed. I've tried abstaining and it didn't work. Maybe I have to abstain for a year? But it's impossible for me... I guess I'll have to give up and live this way for the rest of my life. :(

  • I also have what I have self-diagnosed as an insensitive penis.I have been a diagnosed Type II (Adult Onset) diabetic for 15 years, with diagnosed neuropathy in the feet and legs --- and I suspect, in the penis too.I am currently 48 years old.I have been a chronic masterbator since the age of 9 - initially using an electric back massager to apply pressure to the underside of my erect penis while still wearing underwear and jeans. Ultimately I decided to forego the back massager and used the knuckles of my right fist to apply pressure while rubbing vigorously. I continued this method until my dry orgasms started becoming wet orgasms (around the age of 18). Since then, the self-pleasuring sessions either occurred in the tub or shower (with soap as a lubricant). However, once I got a computer (and the accompanying ***n), my sessions have been without lubricant. I usually have at least one session per day with multiple sessions on the weekend.So, even with the potential neuropathy, I've done my fair share of desensitizing with the multiple / daily beatings.I cannot speak to a loss of sensitivity with regard to carnal sessions, because I have no frame of reference because I remained a virgin until November 2008.I have found that I cannot maintain an erection while receiving oral or vaginal stimulation without the assistance of Viagra (and even then, I do not feel anything - I have yet to ejaculate though any means besides a handjob).This lack of orgasm and lack of erection coupled with the additional handicap of only having a 4 inch long member (and being 6'4" and 300+ lbs) has caused my last 2 girlfriends to seek healthier and better endowed men (because evidently being a nice guy with a great tongue only goes so far in today's relationship arena).I'm not sure what to do at this point -- I've come to the realization that I'd like to finish my remaining 10 to 25 years on this planet with a partner, but the combination of short & limp & dead ***k just doesn't seem to be what it takes to hold onto a sexually emancipated older woman nowadays.
