  • As far as. Religious view on it, i chose celibacy before marriage in my teens, so i didn't have many options left. If I didn't do those things I would have been burning inside till I gave in.
    Porn is obviously a no no again for a host of reasons some I, d say 8 out of 10 being non religious ones. So I read things, or listened to erotic audio to supplement porn which for me was better to me I don't know why maybe more emotion to it than just , bend over and lets do it, i did it to fall asleep for a long time you shouldn't do that. I would say o feel way less peny up after avoiding porn, i, d say I feel really no guilt. Often a lot of ,, religion,, is put out there and not what the bible actually says on a topic which it says nothing about masturbation but it says lust is wrong. But not specifically that by name.

  • Overwhelmingly negative. It could be my mental illness making me see things this way, but it feels like men are more receptive to me when I masturbate a lot (Testosterone levels are low and therefore do not emit a smell threat) and women are more receptive to me when I don't masturbate very often (Testosterone levels are high, I can offer protection from men who may pose a threat). My life is a constant battle of masturbating just the right way, and I beg for euthanasia to be legalized every day.

  • I feel no guilt about this.
    But the more I mastrubate the more I long for sex. But the more I have sex the less urge I have to mastrubate. If that makes sense 😆

  • I'd say neutral. It doesn't really affect my life in any MAJOR kind of way. It's just something I have to do. Lol

    • I feel you have to do the same thing and keep going so I get that big blast lol

  • Masturbate is very bad reason because its makes you hate men for no reason

    • i disagree I've been masterbating for around 35yrs no ed problem and i still have sex with women and men none of that has changed

    • It good say you have sex with a guy, please try as much as you can to involve your with guy around you.

  • I tend to feel almost gross after. I would rather have my man please me.

  • I don't know it's been over 2 years for me my wife cheated on me and left 21 months ago and I just shut down. Lost interest in sex almost altogether except for the dreams about my wife. But she told me I'm a fat ugly worthless fucking piece of shit when I found her in my house with another man and that's just stuck in my mind and I really dont want to even touch myself because it just makes me think of that look in her eyes that I'm completely disgusting to her.

  • i mean its healthy for you so id say its a positive thing

    mine please?
    Too strong messaging girl on Instagram? ↗

  • Positive it's a Spectacular Stress Relief.

    • did you vote?

    • Yes I did...

  • Most times I watch porn to get pleasure and I don't like that fact cause it trains your body to only get excited. That way instead of a actual female taking her clothes off in front of you

  • It does help get rid of that desire to get laid and be intimate. So it's definitely positive for me. I can concentrate on other things.

  • After awhile the really act of sex with another person feels more filling. Sole is work is just to feel good.

  • I'll proudly say that masterbateing has been a huge positive in my life. There are so many occasions I could say that its helped me through. I think its relaxing, calming, stress reducing, and honestly its kept me faithful in the past. It's a shame that some people put such a stigma on it. It's been made such a taboo topic that we hide I shame and do it. Well not me I'll scream from the mountain tops I wack off and damnit I enjoy it.

  • Positive if you can control the frequency. Or else it always negative.

  • Very positive, i am trying to find ways to control that urge so that i feel it strongly when at home and can still function during the day since i love the feeling of desperately needing relief while throbbing. Ideally i'd orgasm and then quickly get back to that point with the shortest recovery possible. So if you trough all your sexual analysis questions have found ways to achieve it let me know :D

  • I voted very positive. That's because I embrace my libido as a positive and healthy thing (and a sign of good health). So if I can't have sex with my girlfriend for whatever logistical reason I masturbate when I feel the need.

    • Good point

  • Well I would say while it feels great causes some health problems like ed for guys as well as it's a huge time waster some people get off right away for others it takes a while

  • Masturbating gives me a temporary energy burst.. then it goes away... kinda like drinking coffee!

  • procrasturbation

  • Pretty negative honestly I feel like I didn't have the urge to have sex so much I would be a mathematician or something

  • its negative the urge to. but the rest is great

    • what do you mean?

    • well i get the urge so much its annoying but the feeling is still good once u finish

  • It's like a drug addiction but worse, although the effects afterward never fail to give serious pleasure.

  • Sometimes I feel a strong negative feeling because my urges are too high

    • I would love to help you with that

  • I only masturbate when i’m depressed/lonely or can't sleep. it provides way more good than bad for me

  • Negative. It just makes things worse and my body starts craving the real thing even more. My drive is insane so I learned how to suppress it or st least suppress it enough and out it out of my mind. I just find a hobby or go work out and my thoughts change afterwards.

  • It has become more efficient to make a difference in my actions because of my medical issues I have to take my time and watch how my body reacts to the change in my body with blood pressure and everything so being able to slowly get into shoot mode is a great relief for my anxiety and pain where I am in another stage of blissful passionate feeling... like I have been in a whole new world of pleasure
