Finding time for sensate exercises and masturbation

I’m starting to work through the sensate exercises and it seems like I should keep them separate from when I masturbate. Should I do these on alternate days or is it okay to do them both within a couple hours of each other?

I was wondering the same thing

Hey there,

That’s a good question.

I know some sex therapists think there’s a benefit to spacing out sensate and masturbation. They say the benefit is that it lets your arousal build up (to put it more directly, you’ll likely get more out of sensate focus if you haven’t cum in a while!)

However, if you don’t think you need to worry about letting your horniness build up, then by all means masturbate on a schedule that makes sense for you.

Hope you find the sensate exercises helpful :hugs:
