Reduced Sensation in Penis

Hey all, so this just happened last week. I was using a sex toy that I lubed the first time, but took a break that resulted in the lube partially drying up. I believed water was sufficient to make the lube work again and proceeded with that.

Now I'll just go ahead and make a list of things where it may have gone wrong.

1). Upon inserting it, I noticed that it may have reduced blood circulation towards my head.

2). After climaxing I felt a longer-than-usual sensation.

3a). I closed my eyes to try to urinate, but when I opened my eyes because nothing was coming out, my penis looked a bit swollen.

3b). It looked as if I still had an erect penis but my entire shaft retracted and it was just my head that was big, it seemed as if it was engorged. I still managed to urinate fine

4). I now have reduced sensation of the upper portion of my penis (top of head/shaft).

5). I've been to paranoid to masturbate, let alone try to achieve an erection.

It has been 5 days since this event and I have not masturbated since. My penis can still become erect, but I ignore it and let it become flaccid. I am too concerned about what happened and I think that may contribute to my anxiety and my inability to bother getting an erection. I plan on seeing a doctor some time next week, but what is the best thing to do in my state? I am unsure if I have ED or if I injured a couple of nerves. But I do believe abstaining from masturbating is for the best. Thank you!

Sounds rough mate, I’d get to the doc’s Especially if your struggling to urinate, check for emergency appointment before next week. Good Luck

I only had issues urinating that night, I can urinate fine at the moment. My primary concern is my lack of sensitivity now!

Maybe you should try masturbating again to check if sensitivity has returned?

I did something similar once. I was in a hotel at a convention, and discovered a long, tapered pen. Thinking it would really fun for urethral insertion, I started looking around for lube. All I could find was shampoo. So, like an idiot, I stuck the pen in with shampoo. It started stinging right away. I took it out, but was way too late. For a week afterward, there was considerable stinging, and my penis was swollen and lacked sensation just as you describe. I recovered fully, and I'm sure you will to. Cheers! - Jeremy,

Oh my, that must have been rough! My apologies, but I must also include that I did not do any urethral insertion but used a rather small japanese onahole
