Keep in mind that the long-term solution is correcting your dopamine dysregulation. When your brain is back in balance, the urges tend to grow less demanding even though your readiness for sex remains.


Emergency measures:       

  • Urinate, which can reduce the urges. (Drink a lot of water if you need to.)
  • Splash cold water on your junk.
  • While you release your breath slowly contract your butt/hamstrings as hard as you can so that you feel like you're lifting up and keep it like that until you can't anymore and release it slowly.
  • Hold your breath for 30 seconds.
  • Avoid fantasizing.
  • As a single movement, practice contracting and pulling upward the entire floor of your pelvis, including the anus, perineum, and genitals. It should feel like you are trying to stop yourself from going to the bathroom. You can practice this in sets of 15 or 20 contractions, holding them as long as you can. Kills boners.
