    SWIM disagrees, since he sometimes gets a boner from shooting buprenorphine (Subutex) for the first time in the session, before the actual effects even take place (IV buprenorphine doesn't hit as instantly as most other drugs, it takes about 1-5min to work)

    Note: shooting pills is always stupid and so is SWIM. Please don't do it.

    swim chases and this happens to him though he hasn't put the two together. some times it comes on after using but while swims still high. annoying thing is its a useless boner or at least it is for swim because he cant finish and not for lack of trying

    Re: heroin boners

    yeah that's another thing, it is impossible for swim to make us of his boner when hes high on H, swim would have to have sex or masturbate for at least an hour for success and there is still a chance he wont get off. acctually come to think of it, swim can't piss either while on H, he sometimes stands in front of the toilet for 10 mins with the sink running and thinking of streams and waterfalls just to get a little tinkle out

    Re: heroin boners

    Yeah swim and every guy he knows that uses tends to experience these. The problem with them, is unlike normal erections, they're involuntary! A bit like when you were 13....

    Somethings do trigger 'em off especially though. For example, about a year ago, swim would have to take a short bus ride to score, then generally fixx up, and get the bus back home.
    On the way there his cock was kickin' back, chillin' and relaxin'.
    But on the way back (post-hit), the first slight bump and swim'd feel that inevitable, unstoppable, panicked rise, growing more and more annoying with every bump, until by the time he'd reached his destination he'd have to hold a bag strategically over his crotch or summin. Very annoying, and not tied in with any sexual feelings at all.

    This could be hours after his hit, or a few minutes........but the bus always lead to embarrassment.

    Re: heroin boners

    Swim gets hard on with opiates sometimes. He hasn't shot dope in years do to availability but he remembers after shooting dilaudid walking out of the bathroom with an erection. Lately he's been into the poppy tea pretty hard and when he gets are real good dose, he'll get a hard on when it first starts to kick in. So swim doesn't think it has anything to do with the rush from shooting. He thinks it's the relaxation of blood vescles (sic) that causes the erection. It not sexual at all though. Swim never gets horny on opiates, even with a chick. He can get hard but can fuck for an hour without climax. He just can't come on opiates. Good for the girl swim guess, but sucks for him.

    Swim definately experiences this on a regular basis as well. He was recently telling a friend about how one of the great things about H, is that although you might not really be able to get off when your on it, the next following day may come with some KILLER boners along with the increased stamina. Heroin is definately SWIMS aphrodisaic of choice

    swim wouldn't call it an aphrodisiac, more of a "performance enhancer". In swims case heroin kills his sex drive, but if he does have sex on it (which he has many times) he can go for hours.

    Re: heroin boners

    yeah swim has had to tell girls that many times, some of them get all upset thinking they can't get you off and its somehow their fault. but swim always tells them "it's just the pills/dope". but it doesn't really bother swim that much because it still feels good and swim still has a good opiate high.

    Long-term heroin effects on erectile function?

    Warning: this thread is extremely sexually graphic. If this offends SWIY do not read it.

    SWIM has been a long-term (15+ years) heroin/other opiates addict, and is now maintained on methadone (Rx pills "for pain") 200 mgs/day. He does heroin anyway about twice a month.

    He's noticed that he doesnt get spontaneous erections like he used to. Some will say this is just aging but he was popping random woodies for no reason at least 4x a day until he was over 30.

    He still has no problem gettin it up when he's aroused, ie: there's a woman coming onto him, he's making out with a woman, naked woman in his bed, watching/looking at porn etc. However he's noticed that no matter how horny he is, it takes longer for his erection to really "get there"

    He used to go from floppy to rock hard in seconds with a female present, now he still goes from floppy to rock hard but theres a phase in the middle where he has a "semi". Fortunately the semi only lasts about 20 seconds and then hes hard as a porn star again. But this phase never happened at all before except when masturbating/not really all that aroused.

    But now, he had a beautiful woman on her knees in front of him ready to do her thing, and it took him almost a minute to get fully hard! she felt a bit insulted, but he made up for it by rockin the dope dick to her for hours after.

    So basically, is he looking at long term opiate side effects, or just natural aging (he's 32, about to be 33). Keep in mind that despite his opiate addictions he's always been a VERY sexual creature. He's down for it any time, any place, any reasonably attractive female (although he hopes to find monogamy soon but it will have to be with someone else with a high sex drive). His drive has always been off the charts. Some gf's have loved it, some have told him it was too much. Guess which ones he kept around longer? Even right now, he's posting about heroin, but thinking about sex.

    So, opinions? Is it opiates, is it just natural aging, could he reverse it by quitting opiates (it's not like he's impotent or has ED, far from it, just as said he no longer gets random wood, it can take Mr. Happy up to a minute to fully respond even with a hottie working on him with everything she's got, and sometimes he can watch or read porn and not pop wood)

    Re: Long-term heroin effects on erectile function?



    Yes, but not as bad (of course he was a year younger) and he doesnt want to go back to full time H addiction just to improve his erection quality, but he is such a horndog that he actually might. Thats how twisted his mind is. Perhaps he could wean down his methadone dose and still shoot dope once in a great while, and see if the situation improves..................

    anyone know for sure (medical professionals etc)? I'll speculate all day but SWIM kinda wants to know as he's about to move to Chicago to be with the finest woman he has EVER even touched, and he does not want this to be an issue AT ALL. He doubts Viagra would help, since its not like he cant get it up, its just that it takes a bit longer than it used to and never happens spontaneously anymore

    A 15 year habit is not easily changed. Plus stimulants can get one horny, but SWIM doesnt need any help with that. When it comes time to deliver, though "coke dick" is legendary for its' failure. Methamphetamine is unheard of in SWIMs area, and he'll occasionally munch an adderral for sexy purposes but they dont really come around much either. At 32 almost 33, he doesn't feel comfortable approaching the high school/college kids one must approach for a steady supply of adderall, he's much happier geting his methadone and klonopins from the pharmacy and his occasional dope and coke from a dealer who may not speak much english but at least is in SWIM's age group

    AW: Long-term heroin effects on erectile function?

    This is very normal and the majority of Men`s in the MMT. are affected!
    (afair.75%)
    It will change quick after a Detox.

    200m. is a lot and the Cat is sure that no Men will have a erection anymore :laugh:

    (for what? :vibes:)

    SWIM gets an erection whenever he needs one (with a woman), he's just got that annoying "semi" phase (only lasts 20-40 seconds though) and he doesn't really masturbate much or get aroused by porn like he used to . He needs a live woman in the bed with him to get him going.

    Swim would say that the 200mgs/day methadone dose, (which is completely unnecessarily high for maintenance IMO), and just the sheer fact that swiy is gettin older, are what's effecting the speed of his cock.

    Re: Long-term heroin effects on erectile function?

    OK. SWIM can actually taper mdone fairly easily, so he's gonna try to bring hinself doen to something like 70 mg 2x day and then from there figure out a way to get to 100 mg ONCE a day, then reduce that to 80. Otherwise he leads a fairly healthy lifestyle, so other than the methadone and getting older he cant see a reason. Once he is hard he can and does go forever and is quite talented and women love him for it, so his manhood isnt threatened or anything, its just that damn semi phase, and sometimes not being able to rub one out to porn if needed.

    Re: heroin boners


    haha Swim had to hide is opiate use from his girl so when she couldn't get him off she would feel bad and apologize. But then there where the days swim wasn't high and he'd bust three or four nuts before she could get off. If she was lucky enough to.
