I didn't have sex for like 7 years before I started TRT though so it's hard to tell!
This comment struck a chord with me. And, I think a lot of men also end up walking this road, but never speak on it whatsoever. To be blunt, most women would never understand why...mostly because they have the option of grabbing a partner whenever they deem appropriate. After all, they have it and we want it. Unless you look like Cary Grant, Robert Redford or Hugh Jackman, that is. Most men don't.
I went for almost a decade with very few, if any, partners for sex. I went that route for a host of reasons. I finally stepped back into the world of dating, found someone..it lasted almost a decade and then once again went back on the wagon...going without for another 3-4 years before running into an old flame who hooked me back into riding that horse, like I should have been doing all along. (I know I saved a lot of $$$ during this period... @,@ )
Did the abstinence help cause a weakening of the core penile muscle(s) which help in good strong ejaculations? Did it aid in what we call veinous leakage?
Probably... I have no way of measuring. But, I do know that the URGE TO TRY simply wasn't there and I was thinking like a lot of men...it was just old age, me being over 50.
As far as I'm concerned, it is nothing to be ashamed of. Only the right woman would ever care enough to change all that, no matter what your situation is.
