Getting high from good sex

I’m sure we have all been there at one time or another, and for many of us who frequent this site (or others like it) we perhaps understand such events very well. This topic jelled for me as I read a recent article in Health Magazine (Sept 2005) that addressed the issue the “high” we get from sex as being similar to that produced by speed and/or cocaine (based on a recent study at the Univ Minn). The researcher established that the more pleasurable ones first sexual experience, the more sex we want (well, yeah!!)…similar to the effect drug users experience. Further, the study suggested that the more pleasurable sexual encounters we have, greater is the need to repeat that experience (again–seems obvious to me) over and over. In other words we become a “junkie” to sexual stimulation and pleasure. Oh, and the feeling of great “loss” at the end of a fantastic affair, not unlike depression, it is simply withdrawal.

Interestingly, some get similar “highs” from just the surfing of sites such as AdultFriendFinder and interacting with potential individuals which whom we may have a great sexual encounter. And, sometimes what seems to be the development of a “good thing” falls flat…and guess what---yep, that old feeling of “loss”, withdrawal and/or depression.

Yep, been there, done that!! Seems to explain why some of us can’t wait to get home and check our “mail”.
