Has anyone noticed a sort of numbness as one goes longer into abstinence? It isn’t emotional numbness exactly. It seems more physical. I might not be aroused when I otherwise would be on a physical level, but I am emotional still engaged. I can’t quite channel energy the way I previously could and my own touch feels a little different. It might just be a phase like much of life. Or perhaps water fasting has made my typical life with food more flat. I suppose that just like porn can create flatness, fasting could as well, but from the negative stimulation position or perhaps from a stimulation position due to the hyperawareness it often brings. Fasting can also bring up emotional muck so it might take time to process that and get back to pre-fasting sensitivity.
For the ED concerned, I do notice stronger and longer lasting morning erections. I also observe more frequent and intense pulsations in my penis, usually when no erection is present. That can happen at any time throughout the day.
