So in another post I briefly touched upon this topic and I wanted to get some oppinions on the matter. I usually state that I do not condem nor dislike masturbation. However, we all here can clearly agree that there are unhealthy levels of doing so. Theres a ton of reports here backing this up. A note in advance, while Models is a book on getting women, No More Mister Nice Guy is more of a general book on male health. Edit: And, since I actually forgot to say this, I realize this is a touchy subject as we all are here because we used masturbation in a unhealthy manner. This is not meant to be a guide or anything, just asking for oppinions on this. Now, I've read "Models" by Mark Manson and "No more Mister Nice Guy" by Robert Glover and while Models only shortly touches on the subject, Glovers No More Mister Nice Guy has the following, interessting insight (at least to what I think) on this matter. Healthy Masturbation is definded like this: (...) is a process of letting sexual energy unfold. It has no goal, or destination. It's not just about orgasm. It does not require outside stimulation from pornography. He also includes fantasy to this (like imagining yourself doing a pornstar or simply thinking of a porn movie). He includes it into his plan as an activity, described as follows: Set aside a time for healthy masturbation. (...) Practice by looking at yourself and touching yourself without using pornography or your fantasy. Pay attention to how it feels to experience your sexuality without any goals (such as having an orgasm). Also, observe any tendancy to distract yourself from what you are experiencing (going into fantasy, becoming goal-oriented, distracting thoughts, loss of physical sensation) Models agrees on all of these things (mostly no pornography or other outside stimuly) adds to this to use lube and only go very softly on yourself, giving in to the sensation (...). Again, if you masturbate, be with yourself, not jacking it to some stuff. Glover also states that some of his patients were compulsive masturbators, and he also used a Reboot, followed by this for their recovery. Glover says that this usually keeps his patients from masturbation becoming a compulsive behavior while Manson (Models) adds a timeframe of not more than once a week, and only if you feel like it, never for release of stress or anything (so no touchy touchy while stressed!) Anyone any experiences on this subject?
