Your Brain on Masturbation

Is masturbation bad for your health? No. Is it good for your health? Yes. Will abstaining hurt you? No. Will masturbation help you? Yes.  

Turns out that, no negative effects on the brain are evident. What a surprise. There's a whole host of hormones released during masturbation.

"Masturbating can cause you to release healthy amounts of hormones, which is why it can positively affect your mood and physical health.

  • Dopamine. This is one of the “happiness hormones” that’s related to your brain’s reward system.
  • Endorphins. The body’s natural pain reliever, endorphins also have de-stressing and mood-boosting effects.
  • Oxytocin. This hormone is often called the love hormone and is associated with social bonding.
  • Testosterone. This hormone is released during sex to improve stamina and arousal. It’s also released when you have sexual fantasies, according to a 2011 studyTrusted Source.
  • Prolactin. A hormone that plays an important role in lactation, prolactin also influences your mood and immune system."
I've posted here about guys jacking off at the office in order to achieve greater concentration on a project. Or to calm nerves before a presentation. Turns out, those guys are smarter than anyone thought.

"You might have heard of “post-nut clarity” — a situation where your brain suddenly feels focused after you have an orgasm.
Indeed, many people find that masturbating helps them concentrate better. As such, they might masturbate before working, studying, or taking a test."
Negative effects? Well, apparently they are tied to social acceptance and religious or spiritual stigmas, and that women shouldn't masturbate. Yes, they should!
This is why making people more aware that masturbation is the most common sexual activity there is, that it's normal and healthy is so important.

So, this weekend, have at it. Indulge your senses.

It'll improve your mental health.

Your Normal Flood

I somehow escaped the rash of winter colds that make the rounds each year. When they do strike, like most people, I reach for the over-the-counter (OTC) meds to clear up the sinuses.

"I've battled a colds every year and this one has hung around longer than usual. My dick lets me know I'm on the mend. The thing that bugs me is the complete lack of pre and a much smaller amount of jizz when I shoot. I mean it feels good but it doesn't feel GOOD. WTF gives?"

Ah, yes. OTC cold meds. Those medications contain pseudoephedrine hydrochloride to dry up the sinus mucus membranes. But, sadly it does the same for semen. The typical number of spasms is between 10 and 15, which won't (shouldn't) be affected.
But the volume most likely will be significantly lowered. That, in turn, lowers the sense of completeness and satisfaction. The National Institute of Health (NIH) has determined the normal parameters of semen output is between 1.5 and 5 millileters, or approximately 1/4 to 1 teaspoon.

As guys know, lowered volume is not as satisfying

as we would like.
((On a side note, there's a gradual but normal drop in volume as we age (getting old sucks!). But if you're under the age of 50, otherwise healthy, and notice a sudden and consistent difference in volume, it could be a sign of an underlying problem - like diabetes. Read this article from Men's Health for further info.))
There's no real remedy. Unfortunately. you'll just have to wait it out while the medication is flushed out of your system. 
You should notice a return to your normal flood.

Guilty Pleasure

Of course, for those who take it all to heart, Fat Tuesday is followed by Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. The idea is that now until Easter one must give up some type of guilty pleasure, such as food or drink. 

Promise me you won't give up masturbation, though.

Because it isn't a guilty pleasure.

or at least it shouldn't be.

Beads for Boners

Today is the final day of Carnivale - or Fat Tuesday as some call it - to utilize the fat from the larder before the weeks of Lent begin. 

Originally, it was tossing bead necklaces to women who would lift their tops to show off the boobs.
As people demanded equality....women started tossing those beaded necklaces to guys who would drop trou and show off the goods.
 Yeah, public nudity is against the law but, generally, law enforcement looks the other way when it's all in fun.


Extra points (and beads) for boners.

Religious or not, join in the festivities.
