Hi all. Another dream post here I’m afraid (Jungians anonymous).
Sadly I haven’t been recalling more dreams since I quit orgasm, but the ones I do remember are increasingly vivid. If my experience is typical then I believe us 21st-century O-chasers have been locked out of an important area of the psyche - but I’m only an amateur folklorist so let's hear your thoughts. :)
When we were both 17, a friend of mine was killed in an accident. It was the last day of school (around this time of year), so the news reached me 2 days late – it had happened on my street. I went into shock and I was unable to grieve - I missed the funeral. It was too much to visit his grave but equally I couldn’t cry. Months went by and I still couldn’t – as the event moved into fact I just accepted it. Thoughts of him grew less frequent, as I suppose they must.
Yet last night, he was there. It was a dream but the joy of reunion was intensely real. He said he was alive quite cheerily and I didn’t question it all, just embraced and kissed him. Anyway, I don’t mean to present a dream diary – the point is this: you know how dreams are often quite hazy round the edges? This wasn’t. I have never before had a dream so powerful that it challenged waking reality. This time I felt I was being subtly instructed in some deeper truth, compared to which the daily errands haven’t matter much – not even drawing my CV.
As a singer in the oral tradition, I can tell you our forefathers were pretty obsessed with nightly visitations and supernatural lovers – ghosts appear in loads of the best songs, always to their dear ones at night. Normally I’d think “well they’re a good dramatic device” – but I now wonder if this was actually a common experience among our balanced hypersensitive ancestors. Perhaps if I lived in another time I’d perceive last night’s dream as real? I’m pretty sure it’s only technology-addiction that prevents me from entertaining that possibility now -- the joy of seeing him was just like the joyful reunions in the old Christian hymns, for instance.
Right then, voodoo session over. Here’s a Q about testosterone and skincare
I don't know if us males get more testosterone from retaining our seed, but this has to be the case for me. Almost immediately I had:
-chest hair (thought my pattern would be settled at 22!)
-occasional hot-headedness (not so desirable)
And now my skin is very greasy, like I’m a teenager again. Have any of you noticed this, and may I ask you how you prevent it? i am dreading the spot outbreak.
