How do you feel after masturbating?

Recommended Posts

Grant me grACE

I usually feel awesome after, but only do it about twice per month, and typically in the shower (no sweat/stickiness after, and yes, warm shower relaxation bonus). Sometimes I think on it a few days and go, "Nah, it can wait," and then it all builds up to "Okay, this needs to be addressed right now." The first orgasm takes the longest to reach, the second or third feels the best, and then my body feels satisfied for another 2-4 weeks. I don't mind the idea of masturbation or orgasms, but my libido shuts down at the thought of someone else touching me. If I think about that halfway through, it turns me off and I can't reach orgasm, and end up still needing one, and am angry on top of it. Just gotta get there quick, get it done, and continue on with my day.

I have a complicated relationship with masturbation. Sometimes I feel the need but it's a big effort because nothing really turns me on and I spend like 45min in the bathroom trying to cum. I try to create fantasies to make the process... quick I guess.

 

LMAO I'm so awkward

Sometimes I just simply wake up in the morning... aroused for no reason (I do have a female body so it's not morning wood haha) and then the next step is to get rid of the tension - it's as simple as that. I've got a super fast shower technique :D ,no fantasizing needed, always works. I wouldn't like anybody else in the shower "helping" me either :D

Hmm,

 

I don't orgasm, but the experience is different depending on the preparations I make ahead of time.

 

If I just want to get it over with, nothing.

 

If I take my time it feels a little intense, of course that usually takes a lot more time.

 

In either case, I always end up feeling more asexual at the end of it.

 

At least that is the best way I can describe it.

I can get aroused and all, but I don't experience any sort of need, like it feels good but cake is better.

Generally, whether or not I orgasm, I have no interest in it at the end.

I have only masturbated a couple of times, it was such a waste of time, I don't get the appeal.

So I actually masturbate every now and again (a couple times a month), and it's usually out of stress. But the thing with me is that I have no idea if what happens is an orgasm or not. It feels good and pleasurable, but I would never describe it as something worth pursuing? It doesn't make a lot of sense.

 

Abouta year and a half ago I developed Restless Genital Syndrome/Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome/Persistent Sexual Around Syndrome. It's pretty terrible because my body is physically always aroused no matter what, but I don't seek out sexual activity to relieve, and it can't be relieved anyway. It's especially frustrating because I don't have any sexual desire, so I just... am aroused. physically. Not mentally.

 

Sorry, tangent... tl;dr:

I masturbate, out of stress. Also because my body is permanently aroused. And it sucks.

It's kind of an adventure for me, discovering things that arouse me that I didn't know before.

 

I have a wicked imagination, and can go inside myself, to either talk to or receive conversation from an imaginary partner, and I feel like I'm 18 again (or younger).

 

I get more out of the experience, and talking about it, even without prurient interest, than I ever did from physical, partnered sex.

 

For a long time I was so ashamed of that last part, but I am obviously missing something, psychologically or genetically, which prevents me from enjoying offline, partnered sex the way I'm supposed to. I don't know if I'll ever be free of that shame, entirely, and maybe it's the shame that drives me to masturbate.

 

It's how I make peace with my demons. Things could be a lot worse..

Usually, I feel relaxed but sometimes it undermines confidence in my chosen description for Sex-Ace if porn or erotica was used because I'm still insecure in what that means to me yet. I feel the need to analyze and this undermines the usually relaxed feel. Still, I do it often and I find it helps whittle away the hours if I'm bored. In part because even orgasm without fantasy feels good, but also because it helps me feel in control of managing my libido. So it's a positive overall, even if it sometimes causes me a little confusion until I get a better grasp on who I am with regards to sex.

Mildly relaxed, but otherwise nothing much. I only masturbate to ease the boredom while I wait for my brain to fall asleep.

There were periods of times I would do it quite often for stress-relief or to fall asleep. It feels good that you can take care of yourself.

Mostly I feel good and relaxed afterwards.

Sometimes I end up feeling weird, but that only happens when I think about it too much. I have to remind myself not to do that, because it makes the whole thing blah, which makes me feel blah, which then makes my whole day be blah. If that still makes sense. :lol:

It's best when I don't (over)analyze things.

I feel relieved and comfortable like after eating chocolate cake of relaxing in a warm bath and then I usually get tired.

Honestly? I'm thoroughly asexual, but I genuinely enjoy the experience start to finish. Other times are less enjoyable than others because I was forcing it or was just doing it for purely clinical reasons (usually menstrual cramps or insomnia), but for the most part, I love it.

So...yeah, I usually feel pretty freaking fantastic. :D

What I'm really baffled by is the raging sweet tooth I get afterward. :lol:

@Pixley It's nice to read someone's experiences that are similar to mine :). I know what you mean about 'forcing it'. Kind of disappointing when nothing comes of the effort. 

 

It kind of saddens me when I read some of the posts where folks will say, "I masturbate, but don't enjoy it."

 

If you search for some of my content on the subject here in the Sex Talk forum, you'd think I was a spokesperson for the activity the way I uninhibitedly talk about it.
