Warning: this thread is extremely sexually graphic. If this offends SWIY do not read it.
has been a long-term (15+ years) heroin
addict, and is now maintained on methadone
(Rx pills "for pain") 200 mgs/day. He does heroin anyway about twice a month.
He's noticed that he doesnt get spontaneous erections like he used to. Some will say this is just aging but he was popping random woodies for no reason at least 4x a day until he was over 30.
He still has no problem gettin it up when he's aroused, ie: there's a woman coming onto him, he's making out with a woman, naked woman in his bed, watching/looking at porn etc. However he's noticed that no matter how horny he is, it takes longer for his erection to really "get there"
He used to go from floppy to rock hard in seconds with a female present, now he still goes from floppy to rock hard but theres a phase in the middle where he has a "semi". Fortunately the semi only lasts about 20 seconds and then hes hard as a porn star again. But this phase never happened at all before except when masturbating/not really all that aroused.
But now, he had a beautiful woman on her knees in front of him ready to do her thing, and it took him almost a minute to get fully hard! she felt a bit insulted, but he made up for it by rockin the dope dick to her for hours after.
So basically, is he looking at long term opiate
side effects, or just natural aging (he's 32, about to be 33). Keep in mind that despite his opiate addictions he's always been a VERY sexual creature. He's down for it any time, any place, any reasonably attractive female (although he hopes to find monogamy soon but it will have to be with someone else with a high sex drive). His drive has always been off the charts. Some gf's have loved it, some have told him it was too much. Guess which ones he kept around longer? Even right now, he's posting about heroin, but thinking about sex.
So, opinions? Is it opiates, is it just natural aging, could he reverse it by quitting opiates (it's not like he's impotent or has ED, far from it, just as said he no longer gets random wood, it can take Mr. Happy up to a minute to fully respond even with a hottie working on him with everything she's got, and sometimes he can watch or read porn and not pop wood)
