Self-pleasuring as a Stress Management Strategy

Self-pleasuring as a Stress Management
Stress is on the rise for many people. A 2017 U.S. survey found that 63% of
Americans found the future of the country is a significant source of stress,
62% cited money worries as a stressor and 61% listed work issues as a
significant cause of stress. There seem to be more causes of stress in recent
years, and that’s not good for anyone. Stress can affect a man on every level,
including male organ health, as men who are stressed out may tend to find it
more difficult to perform sensually than men whose stress levels are lower.
So with stress so prominent a concern, more men may want to consider a
little self-pleasuring as one enjoyable way of helping to deal with all this
The case for self-pleasuring
Why should self-pleasuring help relieve stress? Well, in the long term, it
doesn’t. If a person is chronically stressed, he needs to figure out what his
specific stress triggers are and then develop a range of strategies for dealing
with them. But in the short term, many people find that self-pleasuring does
give them temporary relief when they are feeling stressed out.
That’s because self-gratifying helps to lower blood pressure while at the
same time releasing serotonin and dopamine, two substances that have the
effect of calming a person’s stress. For men, it appears that maximum relief
is usually achieved if a guy continues self-stimulating through seed release but some men find stress reduction occurs even when their fondling does not
lead to seed release.
How to use it
There aren’t very many men who need instructions on how to self-stimulate
– but if a guy wants to use self-pleasuring as a stress management strategy,
there are some things he needs to consider.
 Make the setting calm. A man’s stress levels may rise while he’s
self-gratifying if he’s doing so in a setting which creates tension. For
example, if he’s in a room with no lock on the door and is intensely
worried that someone is going to walk in on him. In the ideal
situation, a man will be in a room in which he feels totally at ease and
comfortable. That’s not always possible – especially if a man is trying
to relieve stress that is overwhelming him while he is at work – but
whatever the setting, he should make it as stress-free as is possible
under the circumstances.
 Erase guilt. Many men have a complicated relationship with their
self-pleasuring and find that for various reasons they feel guilty when
they stimulate themselves. Self-pleasuring will be much more
effective as a stress reliever if a man is able to allow himself to
indulge in the activity freely and without guilt. This may require
discussing the reasons for his guilt with a professional and developing
ways to address the issue.
 Get into it. The more freedom a man feels while self-fondling, the
greater the stress relief. He should allow himself to use sensual toys,
view adult material, moan, etc. if he feels the desire to do so. He
should also do his best to give himself as much time as he desires to
self-gratify. Again, this isn’t always possible, but if he is watching the
clock rather than focusing on self-stimulating, he may be adding to his
Self-pleasuring can help relieve stress, but by itself it is not enough to deal
with a chronically stressful situation. Those in such situations need to seek
experienced help.
Using self-pleasuring to handle stress is easier if the member is in good
general health, so be sure to regularly used a superior male organ health
creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is
clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Sometimes a guy gets carried
away self-stroking and rubs his manhood a bit raw, so select a crème that
contains a combination of moisturizing agents, such as shea butter and
vitamin E, to provide soothing relief. The best crème will also include
vitamin C, a key component of collagen which helps give male organ skin
its elasticity and tone.
