“Dudes Ascend” host discusses the passion cycle he sometimes observes in himself, his wife and their friends. Think of it as a kind of hangover after the high of orgasm. It can linger for as long as two weeks in some, increasing irritation, anxiety, frustration, moodiness, fear and depression. Recent research supports the phenomenon of unsettling feelings triggered by sex.

Host Hamilton points out that awareness of this natural cycle can also ease the challenge of those experimenting with eliminating online erotica. Of course, it also helps lovers to understand their moodiness as well.

Consider experimenting with your own “march to freedom” by passing up orgasms for a month. What do you notice?
