Benefit From Viewing Porn

ICYMI: Wiley Online Library has this to say about viewing porn.
Straight dudes....Ladies.... Did you read that?
It seems that women may actually benefit from their men viewing porn.

Yes, it's a long, tedious, technical report. So, here's the bottom line:
VSS use within the range of hours tested is unlikely to negatively impact sexual functioning, given that responses actually were stronger in those who viewed more VSS. Prause N and Pfaus J. Viewing sexual stimuli associated with greater sexual responsiveness, not erectile dysfunction. Sex Med 2015;3:90–98."

While some people ([cough]the religious right[cough]) rail against porn and depict it as detrimental, it is actually beneficial.

I thought you'd like that.

NoFap, Ed, and PE

The difference between NoNut November and NoFap is that during NoNut we are supposed to ignore the heaviness and aching in our balls, ignore the boners, and not cum for the entire month. Ostensibly, just to see if we can.

 NoFap allows you to cum - just not by jacking off. Though, I'll assume it's allowable if it's someone else's hand doing the stroking. Or, you are at least engaged in sexual activity with a partner.

But NoFap disallows porn because it might temp you into polishing your knob. Because....according to them, masturbation leads to Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE). They claim porn usage leads to "desensitization, which renders the person unable to get aroused during sex." But it doesn’t have strong evidence behind it.

Here are the facts:
Research shows that “ Viewing sexual stimuli is associated with greater sexual responsiveness, not erectile dysfunction.” They found no evidence of the “desensitization” process, or pornography having an effect on ED. In fact, sexual responses were actually stronger for people who watched VSS (Visual Sexual Stimuli).

It also doesn’t seem to cause premature ejaculation. In fact, logic follows that you could actually delay ejaculation because of the ‘practice’ you have. Again, there’s no real evidence to support this claim.

Wiley Online Library has this to say about viewing porn.
Whether you watch porn, or not, to increase arousal, jacking off helps your cock by increasing the supply of blood oxygen, thereby enabling better, harder erections.

Frequent ejaculations reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

NoNut and ED

It's Veteran's Day in the U.S.
When you see or talk to a veteran - relative, friend, or stranger - take the time to thank them for the sacrifice they made.
Or are making.
Active duty members deserve our appreciation, too.
Remember, it is proper to say "Thank you for your service," but a vet will also appreciate "Never forget."
We're approaching the middle of November which, sadly, has a faction of people who encourage men to stop ejaculating via NoNut November.
Earlier this month, a Faithful Reader asked if there is any connection between NoNut November, the NoFap Movement and erectile dysfunction (ED).  Let's talk about NoNut first.
The rules are pretty simple.
  • You cannot have sex, masturbate, or nut in any way, shape or form.
  • Watching pornography and having boners are allowed, but you can't nut.
  • You are only allowed one wet dream. ...
  • You do not have 3 strikes; you only have one shot at it.

Although, how you control wet dreams is beyond me.
The idea behind NoNut is to, what? This quick article from Metro may have the answer. However, it won't cover whether masturbation causes ED. The simple answer: It doesn't.

 The claims of jacking off causing ED are an over-simplification of not being able to get a boner.
These folks who make this connection are men who have abandoned partner sex for solo sex. If you can get a hard-on to masturbate, you do not suffer from ED.
Ask any guy who can't get even hard to jerk off.
That is ED.

That Selfless Act

A question about Wednesday's post.

From the Mail Bag:

"As a woman who's been married for more than 5 years I get that my husband isn't always going to be interested in sex. But why would he turn me down and then I find him on the couch with his dick in his hand and masturbating?"

Oddly enough, Dear Abby addressed this the other day, too. Sort of. That woman complained her husband (after 4 months of marriage) wasn't interested in sex. Abby said maybe he was stressed out or had a lot on his mind. My answer will differ from that because chances are really good that guy is masturbating, too.

Guys jack off for all kinds of reasons. One of them is because we aren't in the mood to deal with satisfying a partner; we just want to get our nuts off. But, in your husband's case, he may have turned you down but then couldn't get to sleep.

Blowing a load isn't only a good stress reliever, it's a great sleep aid. So, he moved out to the couch where he wouldn't disturb you.

 If it bothers you, it shouldn't. But if you want to help out, you can. Next time you notice this, walk out, kneel between his legs and suck him off.

But, when you approach him, you have to let him know you do not expect anything in return; you're there to help him out. Trust me, he'll remember that selfless act and appreciate it.
