There seem to be several hints that an orgasm hangover can be much worse after a long dry spell:
- Persephone's current experience.
- Mitsiky's recent experience.
- My observation about getting headaches the day after an orgasm following several weeks of orgasmic celibacy.
- Marnia has also mentioned feeling like she was "screaming inside" in the days following a dream orgasm.
- It would be neat to hear from others (Josef?) who can compare an orgasm hangover following a long dry spell with orgasm hangovers (if any) when the orgasms are more frequent.
I'm beginning to think that the hangovers are much less severe when one is having frequent orgasms. Certainly I wasn't having daily headaches in times when I was masturbating daily.
It seems that one might get habituated to orgasms, just as one can get habituated to some drugs, such that they have less effect after frequent use.
Orgasms may also alleviate orgasm hangovers, sort of the "hair of the dog that bit you" effect.
Marnia prescribes the bonding behaviors (for everything :-)). Several people have reported feeling horny within a day of an orgasm. Maybe karezza would be a good treatment for orgasm hangover. Rather than resisting those urges, indulge them with some very low-key karezza. I think it would be very soothing. Love that oxytocin!!
