I know some of us have experienced blue balls. That pain on our testicles that we believe is due to the lack of sex. The excuse of many man and even science is that ejaculation is mandatory, and that's the body telling us we must release our load. I know I can't talk much since I'm only 16 days on my 90 day challenge, however in my experience whenever I did edging, or triggered myself into erections with my constant imagination, the next day or even that night I would have blue balls. Searching about it on Google, I found out some sources stating that the blue balls effect does not happen because of semen retention. It's due to a constant erection that floods our conduits with blood and make them swell. Whenever our body prepares the muscles that helps us ejaculate, it must reach the orgasm to release the swelling. When that doesn't happen and you just get ignited, the swelling stays and the blue balls effect appear. Not only that. In my experience I have started to feel an intense pain inside my rectum both in cases where no ejaculation occurs, and after ejaculation. These cases are sporadic but the pain does not let me focus on anything else, not even sleep. I have even found myself struggling and taking headache pills whenever that pain wakes me up at night, because it had happened. I thought it was my prostate, but I went to the doctor and after examining me he told me everything was OK. Have you experienced what I would call "blue rectum" effect? How have you dealt with it or the blue balls effect? If there are any posts I should read, please leave them on the comments. I haven't had enough time to browse threads. Thanks!
