Q. Something rairly spoken about is sexual disfunctions.

Wether it be an inability to perform or being hyper sexual during manic episodes. This situation can be very frusterating for patients as well as partners. Hyper sexuality can lead to cheating followed by depression and sexual disfunction. How have you dealt with these issues?
A1there is one its made by Shunga eroyic art its a herbal drink one bottle is 3 doses and works very well for me. There is a cream for women called orgasmics that is a topical cream that imporves blood flow to the genitals it enhanses sensation and longetivity. For men there are enhansment creams such as stud 100 and similar Shunga herbal drinks. If you go into one of the stores the staff are very helpful and will be able to help you find the best products for you. As far as personal sexual issues I suggest theropy to help you through those issues and be open and honest with your partner to avoid you being triggered unnecessarily. And lots and lots of patience... Spend some time exploring your sexuality with yourself... learn your limits and become comfortable with your own sexuality
A2Jenn...creams and herbal drinks? Please fill us in! I tend to have a very low libido due to a mixture of things: depression, anti-depressant meds, and my own sexual issues independant of bipolar. I'd love to hear about anything that you have found to work!
A3... in a manic episode. It comes along with the feeling of elation and the idea that you can do anything you want and there is no reasoning or consiquences to your actions in that state. Like we have discussed before it is important in times like these for partners to understand that these actions have nothing to do with you. It is very hard, and ther are people who will not accept the possible consiquences of hypersexuality (and I am not saying you should) it is just important to know that your bipolar partner may not have a loto of control over their actions in times of mania. Mania can be controlled with the proper medications but may have the opposite effect. It is important to be open and talk about it... but be patient and try not to put too much pressure on... the pressure can make things worse.

Q. Is hepatitis a sexually transmitted disease?

I mean hepatitis B and C mainly…
A1yes, hepatitis B is an STD, while hepatitis C is less likely caused by sexual transmitted disease.
hepatitis C usually transmitted through drugs usage and blood transfusion
A2Well, hepatitis B is definitely a sexually transmitted disease. No doubt about it. However- there is not enough data about hepatitis C. so it could be sexually transmitted, I wouldn’t take the chance. Sorry if I ruined your plans ?

Q. How can some one make his sexual play long still erecting?

A1an erection is formed when two muscles clamp the vain taking out blood from the penis. then it fills up the penis until it gets hard. but eventually the blood must flow ..and after maximum 30 minutes - the muscles start to loosen up.
A2if he has no STD'S

Q. i'm 21 years old, and my penis outer skin covers the shaft. Is it natural to have like that?

from my young age the outer skin of my penis covers my shaft, and only a little of the tip is exposed even if i try to pull the skin upwards. Is it natural to have it like that? I've seen in all porn movies and other sex videos that for all those guys the outer skin can be pulled up half the way. Will this affect my sex life?
A1i went through that link. But still i'm not clear. The flash video shown over there is different from what I can see with my penis. In the video the foreskin can be pulled a long way, and the head of the penis is fully exposed. But this doesn't happen with me. Even at erect stage, my head is exposed only a little bit( like in the first part of first picture ). Can someone give more info?
A2The outer skin of the penis is called Foreskin. Usually the foreskin retracts during an erection and therefore does not interfere with your sexual life. The guys you see in the porn movies have probably had a circumcision. Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin, either partially or completely. It may be done for religious, aesthetic, health, or hygiene reasons, or to treat disease. Here is a website that has more information:

Q. Im a 29 yr old male that has pain after masturbation seems like the longer i go without the better I feel?

Should I not masturbate at all? I have had 2 urethral scricture surguries and my doctor he seen no reason for the pain. I feel less of a man because I want to have a healthy sexual relationship with my partner. Should I quit for a long period of time like 6 months and see if the condition will go away? Do you think I may have imflamation or cause damage to urethra from masturbation? Thanks for your time
A1Hi! My guess would be that the pain you are feeling is being caused by scar tissue that has built up from the surgeries that you've had and when you ejaculate that tissue is being forced to stretch in order to allow the ejaculate to pass through the urethra.My ex Husband had something similar after his vascectomy.
A2I doubt masturbation causes damage to the urethra and I don't think you should avoid doing it just because of that, however it might be wise you perform more tests to see the urethra after the surgeries, and whether or not there is still a stricture that can explain any pain you are suffering from. Try and talk to your doctor about it or another doctor.

Q. Give life to her please!

Here is a really confusing question to you all. But your reply is a life for her. I know someone who is bipolar and she thinks that her ‘brother’ sexually molested her when they were kids. Can this be a delusion? Or hallucinating?
A1Im going to answer this question a little different;What if she is telling the truth,and her brother is planning on no body believing her? because she has this disease?---keep that in mind when you take her to the DR--mrfoot56
A2When people hallucinate with bipolar, they see colors or static in the air or stuff like that. When people are delusional with bipolar they have a belief that they are really important for some reason or also that they can do things that aren't really possible. If a person says that they are molested by their sibling, bipolar doesn't change anything, unless they are manic and freaking out. A better questing would be: does this person lie a lot about things like this? Or, why might she say this. Don't take someone’s credibility away just because they're bipolar. However, in times of mania we tend to do some really crazy stuff. At least I did!

A3Yes - it could be, particularly if she was manic or severely depressed when the 'memory' occurred. Either way, she might want to explore this with therapy. Be wary - some therapists, often unintentionally, encourage the release of the 'memories' whether they're real or not. Will this help her?
