Self-pleasuring Without Visual Aids - Why It’s Beneficial

Self-pleasuring Without Visual Aids: Why
It’s Beneficial
Is this the golden age of self-pleasuring? There are plenty of arguments in
support of this theory. For example, while self-pleasuring is still not really
something one discusses at a formal dinner party, there is still a greater
openness about the subject than in years past. More people, especially men,
not only admit to indulging in self-pleasuring but often talk about it without
a sense of shame. There are plenty of lubricants around to choose from, as
well as an array of sensual toys which can add to the experience. Studies
indicate that it can even be beneficial to one’s male organ health by keeping
the member exercised. And of course, thanks to the internet, there is a wide
range of visual aids readily accessible by most men.
Visual aids
Yet those visual aids – specifically, adult videos, photographs, gifs, etc. –
could be considered a double-edged sword. Sure, men tend to be visual
creatures and so may respond especially well to visual aids when selfstimulating. But as with anything else, using visual aids exclusively might
not be the best idea in the long term.
For one thing, relying just on visual aids for self-pleasuring may make it
more difficult to self-gratify when a guy is excited but, say, the internet is
down or he’s staying with a friend and can’t access the visual aids. In
addition, men in adult videos tend to be rather excessively endowed;
watching a steady diet of men with extra-large organs give pleasure to
women who ooh and aah over their size may make a normally-endowed man
feel inferior, even if only on a subconscious level.
Fondling without visuals
Skipping the visual aids, at least on occasion, can have benefits for a guy.
For example, it can improve his memory. If he challenges himself to utilize
memories of actual sensual experiences from his own past, this can help
him to keep his memory sharp. Using real life experiences also keeps him
firmly an actual player in his self-pleasuring activity: most of the time when
viewing adult material, a man is a simply viewing the action rather than
actively being a part of it.
A man can also create his own sensual fantasies to self-stimulate to, which
exercises both his manhood and his mind. Not only can he create exactly the
scenario that he wants, but he can have total control over it, so that he and
any of the players in the fantasy will act and react in the way that is most
pleasing to him.
And sometimes a man may want to self-fondle without using any fantasies
or past experiences but instead simply focus on being in the “here and now”
of self-gratifying. Concentrating on what he is doing and how it feels – the
good sensations each stroke provides, how different strokes and grips
provide different sensations, what it feels like to move his free hand over
other parts of his body, etc. – he can have a different experience while at the
same time learning or re-learning valuable information about himself which
he can use when engaging in coupling.
A man doesn’t have to give up visual aids when self-stimulating, of course.
But at least “switching it up” every now and then is a good idea.
Whether their self-pleasuring includes visual aids or not, men should be
regularly applying a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals
recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for
skin) to better maintain that male organ health. Because men sometimes go
overboard in the self-pleasuring department and develop a raw, sore
member, a crème with both a high end emollient (such as shea butter) and a
preferred hydrating agent (think vitamin E) is necessary. In addition, too
much rough handling or using a death grip can seriously de-sensitize the
manhood, making self-pleasuring (and coupling) less pleasurable. A crème
with a neuroprotective ingredient such as L-carnitine can be an aid in
maintaining proper member sensation.
