Notes from The Zone Gold Nugget - Passport to The Zone of continuous non-ejaculatory multiple orgasms - without squeeze techniques - without stop start - without any form of holding back ejaculation - without any need to block ejaculation Introduction I gained my passport to the Zone some four months ago. The sensations that grip the mind and body whilst within the zone are beyond adequate description, but I thought that the simple top-level prosaics of my own KSMO zonal experiences might be of interest to anyone who is not yet trolling along the orgasmic superhighway. I take the term "The Zone" to mean a territory, readily accessible to anyone skilled in the MMO practice, where one can experience practically continuous non-ejaculatory orgasm. Some of what follows might seem familiar to any-one who has read some of my earlier stuff on this forum. If there's some repetition it's because I feel that I ought to update some of the detail of my basic KSMO experience so that I can better explain how the Zone came upon me. As there's quite a lot to say, I've broken the text into small paragraphs, but if, dear reader, you don't like enduring long posts please depart here! Note: What I describe here is from my own personal experience and it would be wrong for it to be taken as an example practice for students of the MMO. Recap and Refresh on My Typical KSMO Orgasmic Cycle (non-zonal) Currently, each individual and complete KSMO-derived orgasmic event, several of which comprise a series of coupled orgasms (already on the high ground but not yet into the Zone), typically consists of three distinct phases which occur in a sequence, with no gap between them: Arousal, Orgasm (non-ejaculatory) and The Ride. The Arousal phase is, as most of us know, characterised by growing sexual excitement accompanied by a build-up in the body of erotic orgasmic potential. The build-up occurs strongly in the groin area, torso, heart area, the lower spine, and (more recently) extremely powerfully in the upper chest, shoulders and arms. It is within the Arousal phase that the Key Sound Protocol can be employed to hugely amplify, build and spread this energy. Valley breathing, done from the pit of the stomach in such a way to gently massage the prostate and the rest of the bits down there, further enhances this process. (Nevertheless, with experience, a successful arousal phase can be accomplished without need for any stimulation or prompting whatsoever, leading to the tip-over into irresistible orgasm). A feature of the Arousal phase that often occurs is the unique and exciting KSMO "Buzz". This, an entirely involuntary phenomenon, can be felt as a humming, slightly rasping vibration all over the torso (including the head and arms), but especially prominently in the pelvic floor area. An effect of this is to provide a gentle but exciting vibrating stimulation to the area of the prostate. This sensation appreciably promotes the general eroticism of the arousal, building the store of orgasmic energy and signalling the onset of a top-of-the range orgasm phase. (But this buzz can also appear at any time in the orgasmic cycle, with a similar beneficial effect). Note: We all have our own ways of promoting arousal as a preliminary to embarking on an orgasmic experience. For me, I think the main facilitator is now the anticipation of the extreme delights that will be waiting for me in the session to come. This, of course, arises from my lucky success in my MMO career (a chicken and egg example if ever there is was one!) which is due in great measure to my KSMO training and probably also to my previous Aneros exploration. Secondary, is pornographic imagery. Thirdly is nipple stimulation done extremely lightly. Boy! - once I got myself trained up to get the best out of that there's no more certain way to accelerate up the arousal slope. Pedal-to-the-metal!.......But that's another story! Note: Any kind of energetic physical stimulation during the arousal phase is, I find, diversionary from the MMO experience in that it tends to send arousal onto a path with an ejaculative direction. That would be an MMO killer. The Orgasm phase, I think of as the power input surge to the cycle. It follows directly from a successful Arousal phase, and the arousal is best allowed to grow until the accumulation of erotic energy reaches a level at which orgasm becomes irresistible. Otherwise, a premature voluntary push into orgasm can detract from the maximum achievable energetic potential. By avoiding a premature orgasm does not mean deliberately refusing to let go - it means using one's passivity to the limit - quite different! At orgasm an involuntary expansion of the chest occurs which sends powerfully, via an extended, ballooning abdomen, much of the accumulated energy down to the groin area and thence all around the body. Breathing usually pauses while the orgasm occurs while an involuntary loud scream, writhing of the body or thrashing of limbs can result. These manifestations do nothing to lessen the strength of orgasm; instead they can have the effect of substantially enhancing its power and the subsequent transfer of energy to the following Ride phase. No ejaculation is involved at any time in the orgasm phase (or, indeed, at any time during the orgasmic cycle). What then follows, as the abdomen relaxes to it normal size, is a massive flow and redistribution of energy all around the body, the effect of which is to impart intense orgasmic sensation practically anywhere, or everywhere - the full-bodied-orgasm! Noteworthy spots of fierce concentration are the, perineum, prostate, penis, anus, lower abdomen and lower spine areas, and also the face, ears, nose, top of the head, upper chest, arms, shoulders, hands, feet and fingers. This sensation is like none other! Regarding my own MMO progress, the legs have been the most recent of the body bits to join in the fun but they are currently (2013) both developing just nicely. Immediately following this re-distribution of energy there is a general sensation of the body sinking down into a well of relaxation and sublime orgasmic paralysis. Breathing usually stops as the orgasm peaks and it can be several seconds before it resumes. When breathing begins again the amazing Ride phase begins. This is where the fun really starts! Note: A deliberate stopping of breathing at any time in the orgasmic cycle does not form any part of a KSMO practice and would not be helpful - only let it happen if it is involuntary and seems natural in the orgasmic context. The Ride phase. Alright; the term "Ride" is already used elsewhere, but the reason I think it suits here is because usually, once this phase begins, control is lost over what happens from then on - there is no easy escape - one becomes a hostage to the forthcoming onslaught of sensation, come what may! This is where the energetic power of the orgasm phase is being converted into pure erotic sensation! Fierce shaking of the limbs and body can occur as the body tries to escape from the acute sensations that it's not normally used to dealing with. One just has to wait while the amazingly erotic sensations flood around the body, lasting for maybe up to a minute, eventually gradually subsiding, when some control over what's happening can be regained. I find that this phase can be the most erotically gripping, novel and mind-bending of the three phases and the one which distinguishes a good MMO ejaculation-free event from a conventional ejaculative one in which a Ride phase, if it actually does occur to some degree, comes, in my experience at least, no-where near the infinity of sensation that the genuine KSMO practice can provide. Although the actual orgasm phase comprises a high-energy peak in the cycle, the Ride can deliver even more powerful, surprising, and exotic sensations which can be unprecedented in terms of novelty and sheer erotic intensity. During the Ride the sense of hearing is subdued, there is some ringing in the ears, and the outside world seems to recede as the mind is taken over by the overwhelming sensations. Breathing usually becomes gentle and shallow. Weird visual illusions, sometimes random patterns, sometimes tiled, often in vivid colour, can jump into virtual view. Limbs, and sometimes the whole body can seem to heat up, the surface of the torso feeling like a taut drum skin as the lower stomach feels to be erotically sucked hollow. The body, if not entering a period of thrashing about, can become gripped in a motionless trance-like state on a razor-edge of extreme sensation and feeling like orgasmic, buzzing solid stone. In such moments, I become the orgasm! The Ride can also play further havoc with other senses: the body can seem to distort, sometimes feeling very heavy, sometimes floating, or, weirdly, feeling like a pulled-apart two-dimensional flat sheet as if one were being stretched on an orgasmic rack of torture! Occasionally, at the highest levels of sensation, the sense of smell can seem, just for a few seconds, to greatly amplify faint residual smells (e.g. my partner's perfume, coffee), and even conjure smells from no-where like toffee, hot rubber, warm cedar-wood, and others (usually pleasant ones), that are not recognisable (known, I think, as Synthaesia). Externally, sometimes the room's shape seems to distort and change colour. But these "virtual" oddities, although they have frequently occurred in my sessions thus far, with further progress, are appearing less frequently. They are seeming to progressively condense into a growing aggregate of pure, protracted and overwhelming orgasmic sensation. A further feature of a good Ride phase can be the occurrence of a series of entirely involuntary pelvic floor and anal spasms which can develop such vitality as to become mini-orgasms in their own right. While this is happening the penis can seem to detach itself and float in the air above the bed. When these spasms occur they effectively enhance the body's orgasmic energy stock and thereby substantially prolong the ride phase and greatly enhance the overall erotic experience. My experience of the Ride phase is exactly what Jack calls "fractal" - entirely new, extreme and surprising sensations can suddenly jump into the consciousness. Many of these are, I feel, beyond orgasm! Not all of those sensations, of course, necessarily occur together, or in every Ride phase - sometimes one appears, sometimes a few together, sometimes a whole firework display of these strange sensations can invade the mind. The Ride phase, for me, is uniquely a characteristic of my practice of the KSMO device-free mind-driven MMOs, a feature which I've not yet found to any significant degree in any other sexual activity. The Ride phase can be much longer than the orgasm phase and continue for anything up to a minute (progressively increasing). It then very gradually dies down towards a residual base level of orgasmic background, the erotic level of which normally grows with progress through the session. It is from this background level that the next cycle's Arousal phase begins. Although I've described the three phases as distinct components of the orgasmic cycle this is only for clarity. In terms of the sum total of the orgasmic experience the phases blend and merge so that the actual stratospheric sensations of erotic orgasm can start at some point in the Arousal and continue all the way through until near the end of the Ride - currently lasting for up to about three minutes- an extraordinary experience! Note: If, dear reader, you, have not yet experienced any of this (and are not yet nodding off) you might be thinking that such extraordinary sensations would detract from the overall orgasmic experience. Take it from me, they do not! They are enthralling, mind-bending, entrancing, and add greatly to the transcendental and powerfully erotic nature of these MMOs. Terrors! But during the Ride, on a few occasions when I've felt that I was seriously losing control and entering some unfamiliar and menacing new territory, I've been stricken by a Terror. Mostly, with my progress along the KSMO trail, the increasing levels of orgasmic intensity which I've discovered on the way have been tracked, fortunately, by a growing capacity of the mind to comfortably handle them. However, sometimes these two aspects can get a little out-of-step with the result that midway through a gorgeous Ride phase which might be revealing new and unfamiliar sensations a switch can suddenly occur to a powerful sense of alarm and panic - "....I must get out of here, and quickly!" Such a phenomenon is known to explorers of the MMO world and one's first experience of a strong one can be scary! It's not possible to describe the sensation of alarm and threat so I won't even try. Maybe it's rooted in one's instinct for self-preservation and the thought that one's well-being might be about to suffer some severe damage. Always, whenever I've experienced a terror I was suddenly and without premonition being elevated to a new and unprecedented level of sensation which was sufficient in strength to push me beyond my mind's level of tolerance. But although it's possible to feel quite shaken after one of these events they have never done me any harm or impeded my progress, and confidence to resume operations is soon restored. But always, having been visited by a terror, in subsequent sessions that same higher level of sensation, when it recurs, can be handled without demur. One's tolerance is thus ratcheted steadily upwards as these new sensations become established in the repetoire! These events have sometimes coincided with the passage through a KSMO Gateway (a sudden, substantial, and unanticipated surge in orgasmic results). Note: I'm not suggesting that passing through a KSMO gateway necessarily entails experiencing a terror - far from it - my terrors have been rare and a lot less numerous than my Gateways. So I don't wish to create an impression that terrors are an inevitability of the KSMO practice. Note: IMHO Terrors should not be confused with Furballs (of which I seem to have had none). Multiples The three phases, when occurring in contiguous sequence in a group (AOR), comprise my typical single KSMO orgasmic cycle and each one can, currently, last for anything up to 3 minutes. During a typical session (not yet into the Zone), these cycles are repeated in a series. Normally, there is a rest interval between each cycle which permits some recovery and re-gaining of composure, as follows: (AOR)rest(AOR)rest….and so on. This sequence can continue indefinitely (for hours) That is my typical non-ejaculatory MMO sequence. But there can be occasional and surprising variations on this theme e.g. (AOOR) or ,when pelvis mini-orgasms arise, (AOoooR) or (AooooOR) or (AOooooOR) and many others. These atypical variations on the general theme are becoming more frequent. The Zone As a session of multiples progresses, as well as there being a steady elevation in the erotic background level and strength of the orgasms, the rest intervals become progressively shorter and consequently the orgasmic cycles occur closer together with a shorter interval between them. Eventually, as a session progresses, the tail of the previous Ride phase meets and merges with the head of the next Arousal phase. So a continuous sequence begins: AORAORAORAO…..and so on. This, in my experience, is The Zone! Usually,during a session, when closing in on the Zone, two orgasmic cycles link, then three, then more. At the same time, each three-part orgasmic cycle, as well as progressively becoming more powerful, expands erotically and broadens. Each cycle then can becoming blended with its previous and subsequent ones thus creating an experience of continuous orgasm which is now a regular and dependable characteristic of my zonal KSMO sessions. Breathing can stop completely at times, but this is not stressful as one might expect. One grabs some air when it becomes possible, breaths being either very shallow and rapid, or deep and slow, or sometimes a single deep and long inhalation followed by an explosive exhalation. It usually takes me around 30-45 minutes from the commencement of a zero-start session to enter the Zone [update: Aug2013 - no more than 5mins]. If I happen still to be buzzing from a previous session it can be less. But the interesting and surprising fact is that once having entered the Zone, I can remain inside for more than two hours. I've not yet found any tendency to want to leave due to exhaustion or boredom since the usual post-orgasmic exhaustion associated with ejaculation is entirely absent from the proceedings. The Zone is therefore a self-sustaining experience which can continue indefinitely! Indeed, I find I have to apply determined personal control to call a halt to this orgasmic extravaganza because as soon as a Ride phase begins to decline the next Arousal phase is already building - this can be seriously difficult! Thus far I've not found any unduly adverse effect of these extrordinary adventures upon heart rate or blood pressure (famous last words) Conclusions My congratulations to you, dear reader, for your endurance if you have read all that stuff! I hope that my account has given some idea of the delights awaiting anyone who is prepared to embark upon a serious exploration of his natural orgasmic potential. If I, at my advanced age (sad old git), have accomplished such extreme serial orgasmic experience I must conclude that it is available to anyone and everyone! Some might think, on reading this stuff, that such self-induced sequences of orgasms as I've tried to describe are unnatural and therefore are bound to be second-rate when compared to "the real thing" (whatever that might be deemed to be). I would like to assure you, dear reader, that, for me, these extraordinary MMOs have surpassed, in all the essential components of arousal and high, dizzying orgasm, by far, anything that I've ever experienced in any other sexual activity. I used to harbour the notion that, upon gaining access to The Zone I would have finally reached the ultimate destination at the end of the KSMO trail. But this seems not to be the case - inside and outside the Zone, my orgasmic events continue to become more profound, more powerful, more protracted and manifest themselves in ever greater variety (and I don't mean just marginal enhancements) - I seem to be discovering and exploring an even higher territory that lies beyond the Zone. And, as one continues one's practice, the boundaries of experience widen fractally all the time. The strength, delicacy and bodily coverage of the amazing sensations continues to grow and the body's capacity to contain them grows accordingly - and so it goes on! After some years of MMO practice I have not yet found any levelling off of this process. Where will this take me, I wonder? On reflection, having spent most of my long previous existence meandering around the minor roads of the orgasmic experience, I've now discovered what was there all the time, just over the hill - the Orgasmic Super-Highway! Note: Adept's experiences, judging by posts in this forum, are very individual and diverse so I wouldn't expect that my account of The Zone is necessarily typical for all advanced KSMO practitioners. But if this account aligns with any other adept's experience I would be very interested to hear. Note: Searchers for the Zone should not try to emulate my success by trying to copy any events or actions that I've described here. So no part of this stuff should be taken as a tutorial. Trying to make things happen simply doesn't work in the KSMO exploration (unfortunately!) - But practice does!.
