What are some of the positive and negative effects of masturbation for you?

It certainly feels good. But I feel like I’m rushing to the end most of the time.

positives would definitely be the visuals of the women and the sounds are a huge turn on. You also feel great when you are about to climax and you can feel your heart pumping.

negatives would be that after jerking off I feel super lazy and don’t want to do anything. I also feel like I have become less imaginative as porn just turns you into a robot because it seems like the natural thing to do after doing it for so long.

Positive: the feelings of being relaxed and pleasuring myself just how I like.
Negatives: it’s hard to get someone else to pleasure me in just the right way and I know I fall into routines.

In my culture it’s wrong to talk about sex, so masturbation has always been a taboo and something I’m very guilty about

Negative effects are that it leaves me desensitized with my wife and contributes to ED. The positive effect is it allows me to connect with my body, reduce stress and feel sexual pleasure. The mindful masturbation exercise was helpful as I got to retrigger my brain to experience different sensations.
