// Sex And Paralysis

Sex is something most everyone enjoys, and I’m no exception. In fact, after thinking about it, I fear I might be a bit of a sex addict. There are worse things to be; at least I don’t collect human body parts or smoke crack. But is it healthy? Thinking about sex 24/7? I don’t know the answer. I’ve always been like this, but it seems these feelings intensified after being shot.

Certainly there are questions regarding my injury in conjunction with sex. I would want to know. It’s something very personal, but I am an open book, so I feel most comfortable writing about it.

The first question is usually, “does it work?” It being my penis. It sure does (with the help of a pill). It’s not the same as it used to be, but impressive enough. Once ready it’s good to go for quite a while. This is a good thing (for both parties).

The second question is, “can you feel it?” The answer is no. Well, a bit. It’s definitely not the way it once was. My brain tends to fill in the gaps. And a visual usually helps. As long as my partner is happy, I’m happy. I can still use other things just fine and can feel that. Thank goodness.

Thirdly, “can you ejaculate?” Nope. No muss, no fuss. This is a double-edged sword. On one hand, my partner can go to town (with repeat trips, if needed). On the other hand, I never get a release. Ugh. This ensures I’m horny. All. The. Time.

This is where the sex addiction comes in. More on that in another installment. Until then, I’ll be looking at naked girls on Tumblr and not masturbating.



  1. This is honest, humorous, and does really answer a question I’m sure a LOT of people have. Definitely keep up the writing. 🙂

  2. JH, my husband was paralyzed 10 years ago in a motorcycle accident and definitely has become a sex addict. We’ve been married 33 years, have always had great sex before and after his accident. I get that he never gets a release like “normal” men and so he is kinda always in a state of arousal and have let him know he can fool around with me whenever he wants as long as he doesn’t always expect me to have the big O. Most of my friends are amazed, and jealous, that we still have sex 2 -3 times a week. I recently discovered he has been meeting other women for casual sex–obviously to pleasure them, not himself. Well, sort of…you know what I mean. But still–he’s cheating. I confronted him about it a couple of weeks ago and he was so sorry and remorseful. He always tells me I’m pretty, I know he loves me and my body–he took me to the Hyatt Regency Penthouse to celebrate our anniversary last weekend and we had sex many, many times. A few hours after we came home, he was on-line trying to hook up with someone else. I’m sad and I was just now looking on-line for herbs to tame his sex drive. I could go on about stuff but I just wanted to vent a bit, I guess. Nobody else can understand these things, right? Thinking about confronting him again is making me sick to my stomach. Thank you and sorry for taking over your blog!

    • First of all, no apology necessary. Thank you for having the courage to write. I can understand everything you touched on in your comment. I am amazed at how horny I get these days. It doesn’t seem humanly possible to want something that much.

      I know what your husband is going through, to say the least. I am sorry that you have to go through it as well. As far as confronting him goes, I say go for it, even if it makes you sick. Your feelings matter just as much as his. If you haven’t had any problems up until now, why let them creep in at this point? Again, thank you so much for writing. I wish you the best and hope you will continue to read. I appreciate it.
