Two years ago I had an AMS LGX placed by Edward Karpman, MD. For the most part I am pleased with my decision. However there are some drawbacks that are significant. Number one is the process of arousal. It is nice to always be able to get hard and not worry about getting an erection. however when intimate moments strike having to "pump up" with 10-20 good squeezes kills the spontaneity. And no more starting my day with morning wood, I truly miss that ritual
In part because of my previous augmentation surgeries I I am never flaccid enough to wear boxer shorts. Even with briefs or underarmour I am finding I have to "re position myself discretely to subdue a most prominent bulge. That was a problem before I had the implant but now it's worse. (Please don't advise: "Be proud man!")
The pump is visible and obvious with scrotal contact by my sex partner. Apparently my testicles are too small to hide it much. I wish my scrotum were more full to at least make the pump less noticeable.
At the point of producing length gains the implant becomes unnaturally hard. Therefore I still use Cialis, Viagra and even Muse suppository to engorge the glans and shaft around the implant. This is to reduce the incredibly hard dildo-like feel of an erection. To not be dependent on the pills was my initial motivation for the implant coupled with the added advantage of gaining erect length with the LGX.
My first relationship post implant went well. Ended for reasons wholly unrelated to the implant. I have since come to realize what a jewel that first woman was. She never said anything about or questioned the peculiarities of my penis or our great sex as a result of it. I think one time she asked: "my god. Don't you ever get tired?" And affectionately referred to it as her "Popsicle".
More recently I have not been so fortunate. In fact in one notably unpleasant date a woman asked me: "what's this?" while feeling the pump. I just looked at her. "nothing" I said. "It's natural" or some stupid shit. Anyway I kid you not she collects herself stands up grabs her purse and walks out my front door. saying only: "I'm sorry." WTF?
