I have often heard people bring up the topic of masturbation, and men in particular. Have you ever wondered if it is something males have to do? I have. Until recently, I thought that men needed to masturbate in order to have a healthy sexual life. That it was an important part of male sexuality, and if they didn’t engage in it they would suffer from physical and mental problems. But after doing some research I have realized that the answer to this question is that it is completely up to the individual.
Of course, there are some valid physical and mental health benefits to engaging in masturbation, such as alleviating sexual tension, improving the quality of a man’s sleep, having an increased appreciation for his own body and a greater knowledge of his own sexual responses. But those benefits are present regardless of the context, whether a man chooses to engage in masturbating or not. Masturbating is not some sort of must do.
In fact, there are a number of reasons why a man might choose to abstain from masturbation. A man might decide to temporarily or permanently forego masturbation if it bothers them for religious reasons, if they find it unappealing for whatever reason, or if they just don’t want to. Again, it is completely up to the individual. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question.
So, after doing some soul-searching, I have come to the conclusion that when it comes to males and masturbation, it just doesn’t matter. Whether he engages in it or not, it really doesn’t affect his sex toys life, his overall health, vibrators or anything else going on in his life. It is his choice – and his alone – to make.
I recently had a friend who was struggling with this very topic. He had heard from several people that masturbation was incompatible with religion, and it was tickling his lizard brain with doubts about his lifestyle. So, I had a long chat with him about it and reassured him that at the end of the day, his decision should come from within. He smiled.
It’s important to remember that everyone has their own values and opinions about this, and it’s up to us to decide what is right for us. So, don’t let someone else’s opinion be your own. It’s a personal choice, and one that comes from within.
Another way to think about it is that it’s just like eating; some people like to eat more than others, some prefer certain foods, some may choose not to eat at all. If you choose to engage in masturbation, it doesn’t mean that you are bad, or that it’s wrong. It is simply an activity that some people enjoy, and others don’t.
In any case, you should never feel forced to engage in activities that aren’t natural to you. Your body is yours, and it is important to respect yourself and your decisions. You create your own standards, and you have every right to do so.
The fact is, masturbation is not something we have to do, it is something we have the right to do, should we choose. We have the right to choose our own lifestyles and to listen to our own body. We have the right to make decisions that bring us pleasure and comfort, or to opt out of doing activities altogether, if that is what we choose.
At the end of the day, it’s about being comfortable in your own skin and respecting yourself and your choices, no matter what others say. And if you should decide that masturbation is something you would like to try, it can certainly be fun and pleasurable.
