    Taking A Break From Masturbation or Just Edging Without Ejaculating
    howdypardner posted:
    Sometimes I take a break from masturbation or at least try masturbating without ejaculation. I'll challenge myself with temporary period like this to develop self-control and learn to appreciate my drives more. I can do this during periods when the wife puts bedroom activities in low gear for a while. Masturbation without ejaculating is sometimes called edging. It feels like I've got superpowers when storing up the energy of my libido. I get a kick out of seeing how tough I can be. Erections seem stronger and morning wood comes back full force. Sex with the Mrs. is better after abstaining and I find her more attractive. Any other men out there sometimes like to challenge themselves by giving up masturbation? Anyone know of any harm it can do to masturbate without ejaculating? Anyone experienced with edging have tips for developing better self discipline? Anyone ever have an accountability partner to explore temporary periods of self-denial? Feel free to write to: nothingbutsockson at gmail dot com
