Okay, I’ve just gotta know. I have no idea how many folks read me but I know that there are a fair number of various ages and walks of life.
Have any of you other guys had a prostate infection? Have any of you women had husbands that have had it?
Reading about it, apparently it is one of the most common reasons that men visit the doctor. Something like 75% of all doctor visits by men are for this condition. It’s not something we talk about in casual conversation, just like most guys suffer through other things in relative silence.
One hypothesis as to cause is that it might be by congestion caused basically by the lack of orgasms. I wish I could find the narrative written by a guy on my cb list in his 70’s who experienced chronic prostatis in his 30’s because his wife wouldn’t have sex with him and viewed masturbation as a sin. He ended up going to the hospital 3x a week, so he could lean over a table, holding a dish to catch his juice while a male nurse stuck a finger up his ass to massage his prostate. They didn’t have the antibiotics in the 1950’s that they do today. His humiliation was such that he eventually divorced the wife and he went on to find one that indulged his kinks and fantasies.
My infection came on the tail end of going over 2 weeks without orgasm. My choice, I know, but it was in the effort of improving my marriage. By the time Arwyn decided to have sex with me, I already had the infection as the orgasm actually did feel a bit painful. Am I out of line to be angry about this? The real question is, how many of the guys who are having sex regularly have suffered from this condition? Guys in their 30’s, 40’s and beyond. I’m just wondering. Maybe I’d have gotten it anyway.
I think it was Aphron who described it as a fate worse than death. A bit melodramatic, I think, but definitely NOT fun. Recovery has taken several days and I’ve been taking my horse pills religiously. Only two days left of those things. Everytime I take one, it reminds me of the circumstances leading into it.
