Male Self-gratification Can Affect Intimate Relationships

Male Self-gratification Can Affect Intimate
Science has shown that self-love is very beneficial for men. It reduces stress,
can prevent prostate cancer, and can make men better lovers. But in
relationships, how does male self-gratification impact an intimate, romantic
relationship? Does it cause problems, or does it cause more releases? Here’s
a look at the side effects of self-pleasure when it comes to relationships.
Male Self-gratification: The Pros
1. It helps men learn about their bodies and sensual responsiveness
through self-love. Men who self-gratify are more in tune with their
bodies and can experiment with new stimuli in a safe, nonjudgmental
environment to see what they like and what they don’t. This leads
2. Better sensual performance. Men who self-gratify know what works
for them, and so they then can give gentle guidance to a partner,
which increases pleasure, but also increases connectedness and
communication, making it a place where both partners can express
their needs and desires and more often have them fulfilled (or at least
3. It provides a sensual outlet for people who have partners who are
less interested in intimacy than they are or are just temporarily
unavailable. If a partner has a lower sensual drive, is busy or stressed
out regularly, or is just away on business, self-love offers a safe way
for a man to get sensual gratification while staying committed to his
4. Improves mood and reduces stress. Release leads to the release of
dopamine, the feel-good hormone. Men who are more relaxed and less
stressed are just more fun to be around. Some men are also more
outwardly affectionate and sweet after a bout of choking the chicken.
That means more help around the house and maybe more romantic
moments as well.
Male Self-gratification: The Cons
While most scientific studies have shown that self-love is integral to a
successful, happy, healthy relationship, some couples still face several issues
or perceptions that lead to the erosion of their union. Here are a few issues
that rear their head in relation to male self-gratification while in
1. Feelings of betrayal or cheating – Some partners feel that when their
partner self-gratifies it’s akin to cheating. Use of adult literature,
pictures, fantasizing, or thinking of ex-lovers, could be considered
infidelity to some people. Couples need to have clear and open
communication about this issue because it often results from a deeper,
more intense issue like feeling unloved, insecure, or undesirable. It
may be time to talk to a professional to navigate through this rough
2. Addiction – Recently in his latest comedy special, Chris Rock
admitted to having a adult literature addiction in the past that
contributed to his divorce. Like any other pleasurable experience, selflove can be addicting. The more a man self-gratifies, the more he has
to “evolve” what stimulates him. He also may use a death grip, which
can further de-sensitize him down the road. Addiction to adult
literature and self-love are becoming all too common since technology
and easy access to adult literature entered the societal structure. Men
suffering from this addiction need to seek help separately and then
also may want to seek help with their partner to chart a road back to
the relationship (which is entirely possible).
3. Feelings of dissatisfaction in partner’s sensual performance or
attractiveness. One of the side effects of self-pleasure is that partners
take their other half’s interest in solo intimacy as a slight on their
performance, attractiveness, or ability to give their partner pleasure.
Sometimes it’s true, but often enough it isn’t. Fantasy and pleasure are
as normal as having a piece of chocolate cake. If those are the feelings
that come up, the couple should make time to have an honest
conversation about the state of their sensual relationship and take
steps from there.
Tips for Male Organ Health
Regardless of how self-love is affecting a man’s relationship (hopefully in a
good way), he needs to keep male organ health front of mind. Get an annual
exam, do monthly self-exams, eat well, exercise, and try to have hard-ons,
even if they go unused, often so that the member stays limber and on-alert
for fun times.
Some men also find that using a specially formulated male organ health
creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been
clinically proven safe and mild for skin) helps nourish and rejuvenate the
member. It should be applied regularly for supple skin and to decrease
friction and nerve damage that can occasionally accompany frequent male
self-gratification. Look for crèmes with a natural base like shea butter or
vitamin E and include other vitamins that promote male organ wellness,
such as A, C, and D. Routine moisturizing with a special crème promotes
skin elasticity and boosts blood flow for strong hard-ons.
