Re: L-Theanine and Theanine Serene

I agree. Since the original post I have tried both a brand of pure L-Theanine (Suntheanine, I think) and Theanine Serene, and I like Theanine Serene much better. I think that it is probably because of the GABA. And it is very true that it lacks the side effects of benzos. I developed a tolerance for...

Re: L-Theanine and Theanine Serene

Also, Carl, I'd like to hear some recommendations about how to use the supplement. Ie how many tablets do you take daily? Does it matter when you take it?(bedtime? morning?) And can it be mixed with Elavil? Are there any supplements or drugs that it should not be mixed with?

L-Theanine and Theanine Serene

I was wondering if anybody has tried Theanine Serene, which is made by the same manufacturer as the brand of L Theanine that Carld recommends. It has L Theanine + GABA, magnesium, and taurine. The GABA and magnesium sound like a good combination. The taurine I'm very curious about, as Red Bull is th...

Re: Delayed ejaculation- anyone have similar symptoms?

I took your advice. I told the doctor that, per these forums, valium was recommended over Xanax, but she prescribed Xanax anyway. Nonetheless, I have noticed a difference. It has not been tested with a woman yet, but I tested it during masturbation. I did it once (a few weeks ago) about a half hour ...

Re: Circumcision---pro or con?

As far as I know, plenty of uncircumcised men feel the same pelvic pain. But in my case, it seems that I have some UCPPS symptoms that can also be related to circumcision- ie tensing up muscles to force ejaculation and also feeling like I need to protect my penis (particularly my glans, which is ver...

Re: Circumcision

Webslave, I thank you for your responses to all of my posts. I sound more certain in that last post than I actually am. Here is what I actually know: My symptoms get worse with masturbation and better without it. By frequent masturbation, I mean once a day and often more and often twice in a five ho...

Re: Circumcision

I'm cut and I think there might be a connection. For as long as I can remember, my glans was very sensitive (in a bad way, not a pleasurable way). It was so sensitive that I didn't masturbate in the years when most teens masturbate. I'd start and then it'd hurt too much. When I was 21, I thought to ...

Re: Circumcision---pro or con?

No. They're very well may be a connection. I think there is in my case. Circumcision, like female genital mutilation, may have become popular because it reduces sexual pleasure. If you don't believe me, read this passage by Maimonides, a famous philosopher who I used to read in Hebrew school. http:/...

Re: Penis sensation, frequent voiding

Don't underestimate the effect of masturbation. Something I didn't know until recently is that it is pretty common for masturbation to irritate the urethra. Since nobody mentioned that yet, I thought it would be worth bringing it up. I used to do it every other day. One week, I stopped for an entire...

Re: Overwhelming anxiety - (Please read!)

I want to express my appreciation for what you said about Cipro. If you have the time, I think it would be helpful if one of you started a thread specifically chronicling your experiences with it. I was prescribed it immediately after complaining of CPPS symptoms. I hesitated to take it because the ...

Re: The reason of my CPPS...or what?

Hey, I saw this one and I had to comment. Keep on trying drugs and exercises. Something should work. I haven't been "cured" but I've found many things that help. Little things... Masturbate with your irregular hand (ie, if you're a lefty, use your right hand, if a righty, use your left). Those of us...

Re: Delayed ejaculation- anyone have similar symptoms?

Update: Since the last post, I have had sex without feeling any pain. However, I still did not manage to climax in the vagina. I did not have severe "blueballs." And when I masturbated for relief several hours later, I did not feel the usual pain then, either. I think it's likely that this is psycho...

Re: Do any of you guys have varicocele ????/

I have one and I am still trying to figure out how, if at all, it is connected to my symptoms. Most physicians have told me that it is likely not related to my symptoms and that they generally do not cause that type of pain. Varicoceles, I believe, do cause a feeling of heaviness in the scrotum, and...

Re: Delayed ejaculation- anyone have similar symptoms?

Thank you for your response. I am indeed concerned that maybe it is another condition. I must not have said this in the post, but the pain during sex is not that strong. During sex, it feels like the greatest source of the delayed ejaculation is nervousness, weak muscles, and a need to urinate. When...

"Aphrodisiac" herbs such as Horny Goat Weed and Ginseng

Has anyone had any positive, negative, or neutral experiences with herbs such as horny goat weed, ginseng, or other supplements that are supposed to increase sexual stimulation/pleasure/performance? I tried horny goat weed once on a regular night (no girl) and it did not have a dramatic effect. It d...
