• Do You Masturbate Too Much? Article by Men's Health with feedback from Velv'Or

    See when spanking the monkey becomes a serious problem

    Men’s Health - What’s your number? Whether you masturbate twice a week or twice a day, you probably have a set figure in your head when it comes to your favorite pastime. Match or exceed that mark, and you start wondering whether you’re doing it too much.
    Velv’Or - We know not many men know their exact number. They normally go with the flow and spank their manhood when required. We believe there is a difference between just spanking their manhood and training the endurance of the manhood. An endurance training can be seen as masturbation but has a different goal in mind.

    Men’s Health - Here’s the good news: There’s no magic number when it comes to a healthy masturbation habit, says Dan Drake, a certified sex addiction therapist and clinical counselor. “However often you masturbate, it’s not a problem until it starts affecting your life in negative ways,” Drake explains.
    Velv’Or - We are thinking the same as Dan Drake!

    Men’s Health - So when does a harmless exercise turn into a harmful addiction? Here are the physical and psychological symptoms that may indicate you need to holster your hand and give your boner an extended breather.

    You’re hurting yourself. Yes, some guys beat off to the point of injury, says Tobias Köhler, M.D., a urologist at Southern Illinois University. That injury could be something as mild as skin chaffing, or a more serious condition like Peyronie’s disease—a buildup of plaque in the shaft of your penis that can result from using too much pressure while stroking it, Dr. Köhler explains. (Basically, you can choke your chicken too hard.) If you’re hurting yourself, you need to cut back, he warns.
    Velv’Or - We always say listen to your body what ever you are physically doing with it. And the same counts for your manhood. We always advise an oil or lubricant and tell to play with the pressure instead of squeezing it to hard.

    It’s affecting your relationships or your job. Maybe you stay in on Friday nights to flog instead of meeting up with friends. Or you’ve been late to meetings because you were giving yourself a hand in the men’s room. If you find your habit is harming your social life or your job—or preventing you from getting out and finding a partner—those are signs you need to adjust your routine, Drake says.
    Velv’Or - Dan is absolutely correct here but we always ask for the reason why somebody has this addiction/habit. Is it to release stress or something totally different. 

    You have problems ejaculating. Some guys who masturbate a lot using specific types of stimuli—say, certain categories of porn coupled with specific hand movements—find that they can’t recreate the same type of excitement during sex, Dr. Köhler explains. Basically, rubbing it out teaches your brain and body to get off only in response to your solo act, and you experience problems getting it up or finishing with a real-life partner. “If that happens, you have a problem that needs to be addressed,” says Dr. Köhler.
    Velv’Or - We firmly agree with Dr. Köhler here and think the guy should always keep his current or future partner in mind. Although the feeling of the inside of your partner is always different and will give a very different sensation. Some guys can hold of their ejaculation during a handjob way longer then during intercourse. If a guy gets to this point we normally advise him to use a masturbation product instead of his hand for the job the feeling is way more realistic and the surface of the masturbator is created to be very sensitive.

    You can’t stop thinking about it. If you often feel distracted by thoughts of when or how you’re going to yank it next, that’s a strong indication you're dealing with a serious behavior, Drake says.
    Velv’Or - If somebody reached this point we advise him to do some PC Muscle exercises instead of yanking his manhood. The blood circulation in his penis will benefit from it.

    You’ve tried to cut back, but you’ve failed. “One of the major criteria of any type of addiction is a loss of control,” Drake explains. Just like a problem smoker or gambler, if you can’t manage to curb your habit when you recognize it’s out of control, that’s an issue.
    Velv’Or - We agree with Dan here. But the control of an addiction is not easy especially when there is a certain level of mental high involved!

    On top of all this, there are some times when masturbating just isn’t a great idea. For example, Dr. Köhler and his colleagues have found that diddling every day for 2 weeks depletes a man’s sperm count by nearly 50 percent. “If you and a partner are trying to get pregnant, masturbating could be hurting your chances,” he explains.
    Velv’Or - This is one of the reasons why we advise all men that do Penis Workout Exercises not to ejaculate every single day or even multiple times of the day. This off course also counts when he has Sex Workouts with his partner. We advise men that want to get their partner pregnant to eat very healthy, be physical very active and store-up their sperm so they can give her a full load!

    If you realize you have a problem, what should you do about it? Drake says there are two main techniques of addressing the issue: Cutting yourself off cold turkey, or the “harm reduction” method, which entails trimming your habit while still allowing yourself the occasional five-knuckle shuffle. You could attempt either on your own, but if you fail, seeing a therapist or sex addiction counselor could help you craft a smarter game plan, says Drake.
    Velv’Or - All men in a relationship we advise to talk about it with their partner so they can support him and maybe (which is quite frequently) give him more pleasure with her/his body parts. Many men start to masturbate more frequently when their partner is less sexual active. So if the partner is in for more intercourse this is the solution. If not a masturbation product will be best to buy.

    “There’s nothing unhealthy or problematic with masturbating,” he’s quick to add. “But if it becomes detrimental to your life, then you need to treat it like you would any other harmful habit.”
    Velv’Or - Totally agree with Dan!
