I recently orgasmed for the first time in about 3-5 months. Afterwards, I still felt that high of the orgasm every so often for about 5 or so minutes. Could this be because I haven’t felt it for a long time? Overstimulated myself too much? Or is it natural?
This sounds wonderful, natural, and I wouldn’t worry at all about there being something wrong. A pleasant memory like this (especially one that elicits a strong oxytocin and dopamine response), can be something that sticks around for a while. These neurotransmitters have a relaxing effect on the body and can even influence the gut microbiome in positive ways, making for lasting effects on the brain!
