Blokes who masturbate every day: Aren't you exhausted? Watch


    Since I broke up with my ex, I've done it about 3 times a day... Doesn't tire me out. In fact, my ex was always amazed that, unlike most guys, after sex I was REALLY awake. It woke me up just as a 2 litre bottle of coke would...

    After having time to 'conduct some experiments', I've concluded that it simply varies and is most likely down to me being tired already. I realised that the times when it really had an effect was when I was already up way past my normal bedtime AND had to get up early the following day.

    For those who were wondering a few pages back, orgasms from sex or masturbation can actually help you to sleep as it helps to de-stress and clear your mind of worries as well as inducing a brief spike in benzodiazepines, the sleep inducing chemicals. In fact, doing it in the morning is possibly even conducive to a more relaxed day (more experiments required on that one).

    I don't know if there's just something wrong with me. I sometimes masturbate before bed to help me get to sleep; lots of people do, that's why this isn't anonymous. But often when I do that I really struggle to get out of bed the next morning and I feel exhausted for the whole day.

    It's basically the one thing that holds me back from doing it every day because I know that I'll probably feel ****ty the next day and not be able to get anything done. It doesn't happen every time, but when it does it's like my whole body just feels heavy and I can't be bothered to move.

    Is there something wrong with me?
    Doctor told me years ago that if you have been over masturbating for years (once a day can still be classed as too much) you suffer from chronic fatigue due to hormone and adrenaline levels being too low because you dont give them a chance to replenish.

    Either get some Zinc supplements or just stop for a while or cut down. Its better when you spread it out anyway
