My problem ---> I have difficulty feeling an orgasm when I masturbate, though I am able to get hard and ejaculate with absolutely no problem. Analysis ---> I have explored various options, been to hospitals, clinics, and counseling, and I am fairly convinced at this point that it has to do with my technique. Apparently nothing is wrong with me that medical doctors can detect, and mental/emotional therapists all have differing and not very helpful ideas. I know what an orgasm feels like because I used to be able to have orgasms through intercourse. But I have never had an orgasm through masturbation, even though I can ejaculate with no problem. My old technique ---> I have always preferred slow and hard/tight rubbing as opposed to soft and quick. This has had varying levels of success at producing pleasure during the masturbation itself, from pretty depressing all the way to stellar, but it has had no success at providing the feeling of orgasm during ejaculation. Ejaculation experiences have been everything from painful to slightly uncomfortable to absolutely no feeling (good or bad). Once or twice I have had shimmers of a promise of an orgasm, but nothing more. My new technique ---> Now I am focusing mainly on soft and quick "pumping," but interspersing some slow and slightly tight rubbing here and there for accents. It seems to be working. I "feel" closer and closer to orgasm, though I still have yet to actually achieve one. During masturbation, the sensation focus seems to be less on the skin and more in the inner root of the penis, as if something awesome is gearing up to happen deep inside. The sensations I feel at the point of ejaculation with this technique vary from absolutely no feeling at all to slightly pleasurable (at least there is no pain or discomfort, no matter what). And, with this technique, I generally feel a sort of afterglow that is pretty much how I felt when I used to have orgasms through sex in the past. So that is nice. ANYHOW, to those guys successfully masturabating and orgasming, how do you do it?
