masturbation as a way to restore penile health?

There is more to sex than an erect penis. How do you maintain your sexuality both for yourself and for your partner? What techniques do you use to give both of you a great, satisfying sex life? How do you explore your own body and sexuality now that the rules have changed?

If masturbation restored penile health. I would have the healthiest dick around. Been 'beatin'' since I was 13. Masturbation helps keep the reproductive system clean and feels great. What other reason do you need.

I have had a few doctors who have used the phrase, "Use it or lose it." Even if you can not achieve an erection, the stimulation and ejaculation are extremely helpful in prevent your penis from atrophying.

I am not sure if there are instances where masturbation can help you overcome ED, but in my case it could not. I suffered from a severe Venous Leak and masturbating can not seal the leak. I had a penile implant five weeks ago so now I have sex with a hard erection and can enjoy masturbation when sex isn't available.

I don't know about the right or wrong of masturbation in general. I also don't know about any benefits of masturbation for ED in general.

I do believe it was essential to what recovery I've achieved in sexual function and activity, being a prostate cancer survivor (so far) and having had a RALP with some nerve damage. Don't get me wrong, because I have no erections without injections or at least pumping with a VED (with ring) assisted by viagra. Viagra by itself only makes me a little fuller with stimulation. So there's been no miracle cure.

However, initially injections didn't even work. Pumping with viagra got the blood going again and prevented atrophy. Right away I discovered pumping with a VED, even with viagra didn't work very well until I added erotic thoughts. The thoughts seemed to trigger something and allowed the VED to pull blood into my dick where as before it would only partially fill and would be lopsided.

So there I am doing cycles with a VED pumped up dick, which is also well lubed (required to use VED), in my hand thinking erotic thoughts. Well no brainer what to do with it. Of course the boner only lasted moments before more pumping was required but it did feel good.

However, there was another issue. While my continence had improved greatly to where a little leak was the exception, that was not the case when aroused and stroking a boner, even when adding the VED constriction ring. It was pretty messy and not something I'd bring to my wife.

What followed were many sessions that were, for all practical purposes, edging sessions although I didn't know to call them that. These allowed me to slowly gain control of my urine leakage. The other half of that problem was that even when able to control leakage during edging an orgasm was a very messy thing. There's no other way to describe it other than spurting urine. Much continued "practice" enabled me to eventually gain control of this and learn to "O" without the waterworks.

It was a good while before I was able to bring my recovering dick to my wife. Meanwhile there were the other ways to please her. There's the standard oral but there's also a world of toys that can be had for that purpose. Now we can actually have a relatively normal sexual life. Of course we still have the toys.

I also often, maybe even usually still use the VED between action days with the wife. I'd like to say I do
VED therapy every off day but I don't although I'm certain I should. And yes, while sometimes these sessions are restricted to non-erotic therapy, they still usually result in cranking one off. Well, what are you going to do with your lubed boner in your hand.

There may be wives or partners that would be right there from the beginning helping out in spite of dead dick, all of the water works and frustration but I doubt there's many. If you have one of those you had better make her feel appreciated and loved and pay it back somehow. Either that or lock her in a room so she can't get away.

I realize my experiences are not universal, but I don't think they're unique either. I know this has been TMI for some, sorry. The bottom line is, not taking moral considerations into account or ED caused by any other issues or even possible negative side effects, I think masturbation was essential in my recovery, such as it is.

That is what I was told and understand too. It is supposed to be great for the prostate. Thinking back to my teens and before being married I must have had the healthiest prostate in the country. But after marriage it was kind of replaced intercourse. Now that I have the implant I am still keeping the prostate pretty much cleaned out.
