A 63-year-old man became addicted to the full body orgasms he learned to give himself with a butt plug, according to a new case study.
While healing from a prostate infection, the man purchased a massager to soothe the sore spot.
He cured the infection, and traded his pain for pleasure – perhaps a little too much pleasure, as he became addicted to the full body-bliss he got while using the toy.
In fact, his brain became so trained to the signals that a big ‘O’ was coming, that just doing the necessary preparations – eventually, even just lying in his favorite self-pleasuring position – would trigger uncontrollable orgasms.

More attention has been paid to the prostate lately, with men increasingly telling stories online of the orgasms they achieved once they started exploring the region.
The prostate’s growing popularity has given rise to a wider range toys and massagers, like the $33 Aneros helix butt plug this man purchased.
When he used the massager, the man became ‘highly orgasmic,’ wrote study author Dr Roy Levin, a biomedical researcher who published the case study independent of his employer, Sheffield University.
The man was so excited by the prostate stimulation, Dr Levin writes, that he didn’t need to fantasize or think about anything but massaging his prostate.
He was also given a generic version of Cialis, a drug made initially for treating erectile dysfunction, which can now also be prescribed as a part of a treatment plan for prostate infections.
The combination of Cialis and the butt plug’s powerful effects cleared up his prostate infection and pain.
But the pleasure that replaced it was ‘highly addictive’ the report says, as the man could feel his orgasms not only in his anus, where the toy was inserted, but in his penis, perineum and pelvis, like he would have experienced during penetrative sex.
The prostate is a gland, about the shape and size of the a walnut, that sits just under a man’s bladder and in front of the rectum.
It is involved in the production of semen, and massaging the gland is thought to cause 12 kinds of muscle contractions, which may be why a prostate orgasm can feel so intense, even earning the name ‘Super-O’ in online communities (and the case study).
For many men, the prostate orgasm is difficult to achieve, and some simply don’t enjoy the process necessary to get there.
But within a couple months of practice with his butt plug, this man was an expert at going above and beyond orgasm.
‘When [the orgasms were] becoming really intense in the Super-O category, he experienced some whole body sensation with some involuntary muscular contracting and shaking,’ Dr Levin writes.
His newfound pleasure became an addiction, and the man tried to quit the toy for two months, but, he found, the orgasms didn’t stop there.
He had a sort of ritual for his sessions with the butt plug: He usually would lie flat on his stomach, with a couple of pillows to provide cushion for his pelvis.
