Prostate play is an odd thing. Sometimes it can be intensely pleasurable but not lead to an erection at all. Take him at his word that he got what he needed.
Ugh! This is critically important for so many reasons! But bottom line:
- An erection doesn’t mean you want to have sex
- Vaginal lubrication doesn’t mean you want to have sex
- No erection doesn’t mean you don’t want to have sex
- No lubrication doesn’t mean you don’t want to have sex
There are so many reasons why one doesn’t follow from the other. From trauma (soooo many abusers say “you must want it, you’re hard/wet”) to age to health to your centers of stimulation to current hormone levels to…

So much for editorializing and daddy’splaining. Here’s some actual practical advice: some time when you’re not being sexual – including leading up to or cooling off from – ask for clarification. Something like “John, I’ve been feeling a little uncomfortable about that time – I was happy to peg you but, maybe because I wasn’t really feeling it I was really worried you weren’t feeling it either. At the time you said you enjoyed yourself. But it also seems like you’re usually pretty hard and that time you weren’t. Could you tell me how it felt that time so I’ll have a little piece of mind if it happens again?”
