    1. that's a good story! I would suspect being able to hack your base levels to such a degree would have an almost inevitable result of a "Catatonic Pleasure Spiral" , where you feel good , decide to feel more good, then make yourself feel more good, worry that you might need to dial it back, and then reflexively dial that anxiety back .
      Then it's just more pleasure and no fear until you just lie there super-cumming until your heart gives out.
      Can't remember if I mention this thought in the podecast
