By the way guys, did you know you have a potentially untapped sexual organ?

@manimal, I am curious about the correlation you’ve connected between more porn being watched and the sperm count being lowered. The reason I bring this up is because there are other factors that are in play that aren’t being accounted for.
One thing I’ve studied is the benefits from cold showers, bursts of cold temperatures, and so fourth. One study done had male users change from taking hot showers each day to cold ones. After one month of this the males showed an increase of sperm count by 470% on average. (Which I can provide you a link to review the information yourself if you’d like ^_^ )
Food for thought :3
@jesusbob, You’re saying that animals only have sex to create offspring. I am inclined to disagree. Please research the “bonobo monkey” as well as their sexual behaviors. :)
@birdflyinghigh, please also research the “bonobo monkey” as well as their sexual behaviors. :)
As for my personal opinion on what the post started out as; I believe it can be healty for a male, or female, to get pleasure in that area of the body. Yeah we all see it as a dirty or bad place, but really isn’t our whole body? Think of when you’re sick. Do you even want to go near your own nose?
There are dangers to going in that area, as there are dangers with almost everything we do. As long as you don’t tear something down, or put something that could harm you down there, you shouldn’t have any issues.
Manimal has a secret library with all the real facts. haha :)
Guys, just masturbate 2 times in a row and then see how you feel. Do you need a scientist to tell you that it drains your energy and makes you tired etc.? Why do you quickly fall asleep after sex? All good athletes in any sport don’t have sex before games. In world championships and in various tournaments, football players (soccer) are forbidden to see their wifes/girlfriends so that they can be in shape. I could go on and on. Just masturbate and see for yourself ;) Girls are lucky, they can have as many orgasms as they want and feel even more energized. Good for them :)
Sex for pleasure is SO human. We need to get over the idea that anything sexual that doesn’t result in a baby is somehow wrong.
I know what I believe about sex (that it’s fun, amazing, increases bonds and makes you healthier) and I guess I’m just sad that so many of you seem determined to feel guilty about it.
Yes, sex can be a distraction, but so can eating if you do it gluttonously.
I think that your approach to sex says a lot about your approach to life. So if you want to try something, I say try it! And try to be safe.
LOL at everyone saying not masterbating is bad for health. First of all, not all animals masterbate (although a handful do). Second of all, expelling ANYTHING from the body uses energy. The more energy you exert the quicker you die because you are using life force energy. Of course proper nutrients gains energy back though. How many people masterbate before bed? I know I do. I do this because it makes me TIRED. When you don’t masterbate your body just re-absorbs the nutrients. The only reason probably that the guy who was beat for masterbating couldn’t ejaculate and became sterile because it was a traumatic event. This event was linked to the genetalia which probably gave him hate towards them which in turn made them wilt (the body mind connection is much more powerful then you may believe). A negative mind creates an unhealthy body. If you are healthy and regular your fluids in the body should all be circulated without problem. Unhealthy diets, stress, and emotional damage cause the flow to be ceased which leads to disease and other physical problems. I know when I masterbate less I have more drive to go out and experience things. This is true also for finding a member of the opposite sex (which many human activities are subconsciously driven by). If you masterbate too often you lose the drive to find actual sex because you can release the energy by yourself. This creates unhealthy porn and masterbating addictions which lead to many other problems.
My stance on this is masterbation maybe once a week seems to work best for me. If I don’t masterbate that often I can get irritable and overly horny (which causes many unwanted boners). But I don’t believe masterbating frequently is good for health unless you lead an active, positive life and eat the proper foods (although if you do you probably won’t be masterbating this much, another link to why it’s unhealthy in larger amounts).
Also, no thanks to putting shit up my ass. The only shit in my ass is the stuff that comes out.
Masturbation for men is a completely natural thing. Its a natural urge and suppressing it isn’t. As for feeling weak after doing it, is not because its an exercise or drains nutrients from the body, When men ejaculate, there is a release of a cocktail of chemical/harmones in the brain. One of these is prolactin which ensures that the body gets enough recovery time before its ready for the next round. During sleep, proclactin levels are higher than normal. Animals injected with this chemical produce immediate results of tiredness in them.
As for holding semen (not ejaculating) during an orgasm, that’s something I’ve never heard of. How many of you guys can do that??
@manimal, you know nothing about the human body or human physiology.
Semen does not contain nutrients in such an amount that any health effects can be expected from ejaculating multiple times a day, the notion that one ejaculation loses more nutrients than you take in per day is absurd (just look at the volume, and even with half a brain you would realise this is nonsense). I have also never heard of anybody going sterile from prostate, which is likely nothing more than a rumor (because the prostate does not contribute to spermatogenesis).
Being tired and sleepy after sex is because sex is exercise and because of hormones, not because your body somehow ‘feels’ it just lost nutrients…
@Steven It does contain that much nutrition. An ejaculation from a healthy man contains every element of the human body, every sperm cell has the stuff needed to become a new human. That’s a lot of proteins and fats. And then there’s the huge loss of testosterone, and the massive amount of energy used by your body to ejaculate. You should be able to understand this without any science, but feel free to look it up if you can’t use common sense.
As for not knowing anything about the human body, well I just happen to be one of the healthiest people you would ever meet, with countless hours of research and experience in the field, and I’ve studied biology at the university. Health is extremely important to me, especially sexual health, it’s something I’ve put lots of effort and time into learning. How much do you know about this shit? Don’t make retarded claims, especially when it’s obvious that you’re the one who doesn’t know what you’re talking about.
@Marissa Women who like penis = straight. Women who like women = lesbian. Women who like both = bi. It’s simple. I think sex toys are fucked up, but that’s just my opinion, why do you even care? It’s just an opinion.
@mikeal Haha you wanker XD jacking off is not an exercise, it’s entertainment. It doesn’t make you stronger at all.
@travisad, There’s a shitload of factors, but wasting the chrism is one of the big culprits behind the lack of chrism.
It’s not the porn itself that’s the problem, masturbation is. More specifically, ejaculation.
Cold showers boost not only sperm count, but also testosterone levels. Which is of course fucking splendid and awesome in every way. Plus, more testosterone = more chrism.
I am just going to throw my 2 cents into this one.
First off, masturbation is NOT a completely natural thing. Sexual intercourse is the “natural thing” and masturbation has become the socially accepted form of sexual release when sex is not an option. The natural urge is for sexual intercourse in order to make babies, not to jerk off into a
If you really look at what he is saying without personal preferences, stored “facts” or biases, Manimal makes a lot of sense and has got me very curious about the points he has made. Curiosity mixed with a healthy dose of scepticism has propelled me to do my own research on the subject as it is something I have never really questioned.
As for the Manimal bashing, I do not understand why? He has expressed an opinion on something it looks like no one else here has really questioned, and who are feverently defending “facts” they learned previously (grade 10 health class? Really? I have discovered a great chunk of BS I “learned” in high school was incorrect) while demanding he cite his sources.
Go look it up yourself. Stop demanding he do the work for you. He did his homework, so go do yours.
uh @manimal, i’m kinda wondering why the HELL you think you have the expertise or right to determine if someone is a “real lesbian”? Straight people don’t all act the same way or have the same sexual wants so why should it be different for gays? Also, many if not most girls and women have small/delicate hands with fingers that can’t reach the G-spot–intense stimulation, although you probably have some superior knowledge on that too. Finally, you made the comment about sex toys being “fucked up,” not some specific toy, which is why Ellie brought up lesbians.
So Manimal you never choke your monkey?
I have gone months before without jacking off and the only real difference that I’ve noticed is that I will occasionally have to walk around with a hard on for 20-30 minutes.
@jesusbob, I respectfully disagree about how intellectual poignant his views/posts are. If I tell you the earth is in fact flat and that what you learned in school about this is nonsense you would require me to back up that statement. The same goes for Manimal. Common sense is a good thing. You would be wise to question it, but when lacking evidence of the contrary common sense is the way to go.
I think you’re reading to much into the thoughts of a stallion. His natural urge is not to procreate, his natural urge is to stick his penis into a mare, just because that’s what he is programmed to do. This urge is completely as natural as my urge to jack off once in a while. I would be very surprised if the stallion even realised that this is where the babies come from.
Hey @manimal, a friend of mine was scarred for life because his father caught him masturbating, (then proceeded to beat the shit out of him), and now he refuses to do it. Now he has a literal case of BLUE BALLS, as in, his sperm are dying because his genitalia aren’t getting any use and the tubes are backing up. The doc gave him 2 options: Get his sperm frozen (sperm-cicle ftw) or never have kids. My friend can only get off through actual sex or a girl doing it for him, but his girlfriend broke up with him and now everything has been backed up.
Not masturbating for men is unnatural. *we evolved with long enough arms for a reason people! ;) haha* It might contain nutrients, but a little bit of jizz doesn’t contain all of your protein, I’d be willing to say less than 10 mg, because the ejaculations for a day is only 2-3 ounces at most for a day, all it carries is the genetic material by a few million sperm, what they need to survive until they can reach the fallopian tubes, and excretions from the prostate and other glands. After that, the female feeds and nurtures the growing fetus. 98% of the work is done by the woman in a pregnancy, we just give the other half of the dna. So it isn’t “every sperm cell has the stuff needed to become a new human,” in all technicality. Just a little bit of dna. I lose more dna when i get my hair cut than I do masturbating 100 times.
I can’t find anything about what minerals and vitamins are in sperm, although everywhere I go they usually say most ‘elements’ are TRACE amounts, meaning barely noticeable. Albeit, some things are bound to be more abundant.
I average taking in 50-60 grams of protein a day, if a jizz of 10 mg, that isn’t a problem. I’m not sure how many mg you can fit into 15 ml, but i’m going to guess not too many, no more than 500 at the most, and thats a stretch i would think. matter of fact, 15 ml of anything in the body (except maybe spinal fluid,) isn’t that much of a change.
I agree with Manimal on one thing, stretching of the anus/damage could be (likely is) a bad thing, but that would only happen from hardcore use >_>
also other proofs that masturbation isn’t terrible. Opinions or otherwise. But hey, personal choice is fine by me.
Where I’ve learned my stuff: Health class, 10th grade, lol.
