Since my spinal injury (C4/5) incomplete nearly 5 years ago, trying to resume some sort of normality to my life has been very important to me. Regaining some sexual activity has made a very big difference. I have not lost my interest in the female body but my erections have been impaired. Physical manipulation is needed and even then, it is not as satisfying as previously. I find it very difficult to achieve an orgasm.
For me, erections are not only important for my physical well-being but also for hygiene. My carers give me a strip wash every morning. It is much easier to wash around the base of the glans of an erect penis. I always keep my foreskin rolled back for this reason and also because it has always helped me to get an erection and because I can still get a pleasurable feeling as my glans rubs against my incontinence pad.
Being doubly incontinent, sometimes I also use an anal plug which also gives me a pleasurable feeling. I have often wondered whether I am fortunate in that although I have little sensation below my chest, I still have some in my genitals and anus.
I do hope these few thoughts will help you regain something of what you have lost and persuade others to share their experiences and tips.
