Checking to see if I get hard

So I saw someone in n here that said they touch themselves to check if everything works. I do that often. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

It’s a bi-edged sword.
This whole exercise is a bit like walking on water or as Yoda says … do or do not. As soon as you are constantly trying to/checking you’ve kinda laid the basis for failure to a degree so I’m trying not checking.

The inner demon thrives on “constant checking”

I do this too, but I only do this sometimes afternoon before sex. It gives me confidence that I can get errecrion and release the pressure
