"Self-pleasuring: Yes or No?" is one of the decisions men make with some frequency. (Although often the decision is made before the question even formulates itself.) Studies indicate that some form of self-pleasuring is generally good for a guy’s long term member care, but what about self-pleasuring and decisions? Can self-stimulating impact the quality of the decisions a guy makes? |
The answer would appear to be yes - but whether that impact is for good or bad is ambiguous.
A study from 2006 is often pointed to as evidence that self-pleasuring allows a man to fall prey to bad decision-making - at least in terms of sensual relationships. In this study, 25 college men were instructed to self-gratify (although it’s unlikely very little instruction was needed). They then were asked questions about sensual matters, including things like would they slip a tablet to a girl in order to have sensual activity with her.
The scientists discovered that "(sensual excitement) acts as an amplifier…(so that) activities that are not perceived as exciting…become sensually charged and attractive" when the man is excited. Some have pointed to this as evidence that self-pleasuring leads to bad decision-making, certainly where sensual etiquette and respect for other individuals is concerned.
Yet it’s hard to trust the results of this study for a number of reasons. First, the study size - 25 young men - is too small to be useful for anything other than a pilot study. In addition, the study focuses on college students, a group which is perhaps more inclined to being sensually "at the ready" than usual.
But much more objectionable are two other facts. Number one, the men do not self-gratify to release, only to a level of excitement (and one, might say, frustration), which is very different than the emotions most men feel upon completion of a self-fondling experience. And number two, the attitudes of these men were not measured before the study began, so there’s no way of knowing whether their answers to the questions would be different after becoming excited or not.
Another point of view
Many doctors reach another conclusion about self-pleasuring and making decisions. They feel it puts a man in a state of mind to make better decisions.
Why should that be? Well, it is an established fact that most people make better decisions when in a more relaxed, open frame of mind than when they are feeling stressed or anxious. In other words, when a person has a clear head, he is better able to assess the pros and cons of a situation and is in a better place to arrive at a good decision.
And self-pleasuring does put a man in a "clearer head" state. When a guy releases, two hormones (oxytocin and prostaglandin) are released into the body as part of the process. These hormones work together in much the same way as a medical antidepressant. The body and mind relax, tension is cleared away (at least temporarily) and a man is in the frame of mind to weigh both sides of an issue.
So while rigorous controlled trials have not been conducted, it does seem that, based on anecdotal evidence and logic, self-pleasuring is likely to help a man with his decisions rather than hinder him.
One of the decisions he should have no trouble making, even without self-pleasuring, is whether to regularly apply a top rate male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . The answer is an overwhelming "Yes!" Another decision that’s a no-brainer: choose a crème that includes both vitamin A and vitamin C. Vitamin A is an expert at fighting blemishes on the manhood skin and has the added benefit of keeping stubborn male organ odor at bay. Vitamin C is a key component of the tissue that gives member skin its tone and elasticity, which benefits the manhood when tumescence occurs.
