Not me. Adrenaline is a hugh boner-killer for me
for me as well seb
it all depends on the mood beforehand really. if im in an overly aggressive mood, then yes, if not, then no.
Adrenalin through thrills or fears i don't really get off on really..especially if its fear. I'd much rather hide under my blanket from fear then have sex
Isn't it addictive? The more Adrenalin buzzes you get, the more you want?
It is spoken of as being addictive but I doubt that this is meant to be in the true definition of addictive substances.
And if it is -- it is likely more idiosyncratic based on each personality, much as we talk about 'sex addition', 'gambling addiction'. It's more of a personality issue (disorder?) than that the 'substance' itself truly fits the description.
Most of us like SOME adrenaline in some situations: roller coasters, parachute jumping, driving fast, water or snow skiing, scary movies....
Not everyone likes the same level nor even the same methods to induce the reaction.
Personally, I do (or have done) some extreme sports like parachute jumping, I even worked as a commercial diver, but I don't particularly care for roller coasters or scary movies.
The deal is that I don't like being scared but only like the adrenaline that danger brings -- I always want to be in control of MYSELF even if the situation is a bit scary. So things DESIGNED to scare me either do NOT work, or I am actively taking (mental) steps to keep them in perspective.
Guess whether I am dom or sub, heh heh?
It also means that I am extremely calm and rational during life threatening emergencies or when being attacked by a criminal etc.
I LOVE the heightened awareness and the focus that dealing with such situations engenders and encourages.
Ghost- the addictive sense of the rush of adrenaline has been observed in cutting. Part of a reason "emo"s are said to cut is because they get a large rush of adrenaline and endorphins which dulls their other senses and emotions. They become addicted to this and see it as a way to control their emotions; however, it only channels their emotions into a much more harmful behavior.
(and yes I know not all emo's are cutters and I did not mean to offend anyone by this, but this is the only way I can easily describe the behavior)
Yes, Sado_Dom, but is this an addictive 'drug' or rather an addictive personality?
This is a real difference -- a truly addictive substance has certain chemical and biological effects that will be dangerous to practically anyone.
Compulsive behavior can be associated with the most mundane items or practices.
Addictive behaviors seem to be somewhere in between -- people with certain personalities will behave similarly to using an addictive substance.
Umm, sort of, when I get into into fight and I'm pounding someone (as in hitting them, not the other pounding), or I'm getting hit, it's the same rush you get when firing a gun, it's just amazing. I can't say that it's so much sexual as it how you feel after you have a long hard workout but multiplied by incredible amounts. I think sexual is too far a word for me, but it's still an amazing feeling that I think most guys get, it's just a huge release of endorphins. Please don't misconstrue this as me saying I'm a psychopath or something, it's just the huge release of endorphins I'm talking about.
Actually, adrenaline IS addictive. And So is Sex, and Chocolate....
I'll sum this up for all of you out there who may not understand the full chemistry aspect of this, not that I don't think you can, simply it would take a long time to type and I'm on my blackberry at the moment.
Heroin, one of the most addictive drugs on the planet, blocks receptors in the brain to cut off pain, and in doing so releases endorphins and serotonin in the brain. When you have an orgasm, indulge in rich chocolate (Actual chocolate in good quantities), or have a surge of adrenaline, those same or similar levels of endorphins and serotonin are released. In truth, the three chemicals that are the most addictive in the world are Dopamine (an endorphin, and the one usually elevated during drug use, sex, chocolate, and adrenaline rushes) Serotonin, and Adrenaline itself, which is also a derivative of endorphins that causes the clenching of muscles and the activation of primal glands in the brain.
So In truth, Sex, Chocolate, and Adrenaline are all similarly ranked on an addictive scale as Heroin....
Fuck heroin give me chocolate...
so it's true that chocolate cures even broken heart next time I won't devastate everything in rage I'll eat chocolate ^^
ust make sure its good chocolate, not just the stuff you find in the gast station. Toublerones, godiva, hershey rich dark, or midnight special are all good.
