I think we can all shoot, ooze or dribble somewhere in between, all depending on how we're feeling and how we're masturbating at any particular time.
Sometimes in the shower I may have some residue of morning wood which only seems to be encouraged to grow when I wash my penis. Some days when I'm in a hurry I think of that as a 'nuisance erection' -- it needs attention but I really don't have time to get into it. I'll pump it with one hand while I continue washing another body part with the other (not a bad technique, really) and once penis has been adequately stimulated there will be some ooze as the manly cycle completes. Sometimes you just owe it one.
Then there are those times when you choose to put the major part of an evening into self-fulfillment. I've been known to take several hours when I know I'll be alone to relax fully by shutting myself away where I can't be heard. After a good hot whirlpool I'll take my damp, nude self to my bed and lie on my back, get some lube and start gently stroking. Again I'll follow the one-hand technique: when masturbating only touch your penis with one hand at a time. With the other, caress a body part. When your penis gets hard, try to find another body part which is hard. Rub them both, see if one feels harder, and how the hardness feels different. And if you shave your cock regularly, then feel the smoothness of your cock's skin with one hand while you find another smooth, hairless place and see how smooth both of them are. As one hand starts to feel some precum, start licking your other hand -- see how different the two moistures feel. Relax, enjoy all the sensations. Feel the hightened tensions grow in your loins and as you start to feel some tightening in that area, back off and relax a little. Enjoy 'edging' and encounter the delight of having the relaxation of orgasm sweep over you as your dick remains hard without yet having ejaculated.
Continue the session some more, being sure to add some more lube as you progress. You'll be glad you shut the windows since in your relaxed state you may find yourself making some happy moans and groans -- sounds probably best kept to yourself. Enjoy feeling your hair, your muscles contract and relax; switch hands and see if sometimes you can get your penis "confused" by its being caressed by another hand. As time passes and your tension grows your muscles will tighten up all over your body. You may find your hips lifting up off the mattress and starting to make those thrusting moves we seem to come hard-wired with. Your moans may become louder, almost turning into shouts as you feel the point of no return coming. At that point two hands is OK -- and you may have become so big and hard and firm that it will take both hands to grab your penis, one at the base and one next to it at the top. Holding loosely and moving quickly you're about to ejaculate -- and when you do, that's when you will truly shoot. That's the time when I have gotten semen all over my face and into my hair, with a trail going down to my chest. Then it's a great time just to let all your muscles relax as you have no fire left in you and gently drift off into a sound sleep.
And you can always clean up in the morning.
Ooze or squirt, they're both great, both to be appreciated in their own place.View Thread
Since we're all different these things can happen at different times in our lives. It could be situational (fatigue, stress, anxiety) or it could be the sign of a medical issue. Could be a good idea to get yourself checked out by a doctor to be sure it's not a sign of anything else.View Thread
Guess I'd better have more care and humility on this topic. Since I posted the news article six days ago I nicked my dick for the very first time during my most recent shaving session. It was only a pinprick, the bleeding stopped right away and the next day I couldn't see where the nick had been. But it reminded me that I only have one of them and I'd better take care of it each and every time I clean it up.
This item posted today on nbcnews.com: Whether it's a DIY Brazilian wax or a botched attempt at "manscaping," homegrown efforts to remove the hair down there are sending more people to emergency rooms, new research suggests.
Pubic hair grooming injuries jumped five-fold between 2002 and 2010, according to a recent analysis of ER visits by scientists at the University of California, San Francisco. The cringe-inducing reports increased most at the end of the time frame, with an estimated 2,500 grooming mishaps a year by 2010. And those are just the cuts, burns, gashes, rashes and other unpleasant outcomes that required emergency medical attention, said Dr. Allison Glass, a clinical researcher at UCSF. Those figures are likely a vast underestimate of the true injuries, and a reminder, among other things, of the need for extra care when wielding razors or hot wax. "We actually found that 3 percent of all genitourinary injuries were related to grooming practices," said Glass. "I think the message is this is something that general practitioners and urologists should be aware of." Not to mention the average Jane -- or Joe -- considering a little trimming. Pubic hair grooming has become increasingly common, virtually ubiquitous, in recent decades, the report published in the journal Urology notes. Surveys suggest that between 70 percent and 88 percent of young women in the U.S. partially or fully remove their pubic hair, the study said. Among men, both gay and straight, the estimates ranged between 58 percent and 78 percent.
Nearly 57 percent of the injuries logged in the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System database were in women, but 43 percent affected men, a surprise to some urologists, Glass said. "This is not a female thing. It's a male thing, too," she said. Shaving razors were the culprit in 83 percent of the injuries, with cuts being most common result. Scissors were used in nearly 22 percent of injuries, and hot wax led to 1.4 percent of the harm. The accounts of the reported injuries would make anyone squirm. Suffice it to say that the 17-year-old boy who picked up a razor after smoking marijuana now understands that that was a bad idea. What's behind the reason for the rise in the most private of grooming injuries? Glass suggests that it's caused in no small part by a social shift that has filtered down to girls as young as 12. A 2011 study by researchers at the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University analyzed Playboy centerfold images between 1953 and 2007. They found that pubic hair began disappearing from popular pinup depictions starting in the 1970s and disappeared by the late 2000s. "Changing beauty ideals are reflected in media sources â€¦ and have likely contributed to the expansion of this cultural trend," Glass and her colleagues wrote. The mean age of those injured was nearly 31, the study found. But almost half of the injuries in women occurred in those aged 19 to 28 -- with nearly 29 percent occurring in girls younger than 18. In men, the harm was more evenly distributed, with about 37 percent in those aged 19 to 28, and nearly 30 percent in those aged 29 to 45. Only 16 percent of injuries occurred in boys younger than 18.
So -- be careful out there, guys! I've been shaving my cock and balls about twice a week for the last two years or so without incident -- I guess I'm lucky. I make sure to use a gel and not a cream so that I can see what I'm doing and make sure my razor blade isn't too dull. But I guess that after some 50 years of shaving at least parts of my face I've gotten the hang of it. Guess the matter takes more care than I might have realized! I just use lots of gel and take small strokes, same as I might on a place on my face I was being careful of, like around my lips.View Thread
I've heard of shrinkage happening now and then but don't really know anything about it. It might not be easy to do but you might want to be asking your health care professional about it.
Are there any other issues with this apparent shrinkage of your penis? Has it hindered your performance or brought any pain, other than the reasonable emotional toll it must take?
Our equipment can be any size and the important thing is to get as much responsible enjoyment out of it as possible. If you can get a medical recommendation that you just adjust to it and get past it, that could be great. And if there are some underlying issues which need attention, that would be a good reason to get yourself checked out.
What you describe doesn't sound familiar and the fact that you're having annual physicals and nothing negative is showing up would indicate that the problem hasn't shown up on the regular screen of tests. However, when you have something which is bothering you I would recommend going to a doctor, asking some questions, let him give it a name and let you either go on your way or have some treatment.
Doctors can be good at giving things names and letting us stop worrying about them! Recommend you give it a try, even though as you say you do get checked annually.
Guys, can you think of anything else which you can come up with here?View Thread
Hey, I'm sorry I haven't responded as I have been rather busy when I have e-mail access. Please send me short new e-mail and identify yourself as 'masculineguy' so I'll know it's you -- and I'll get a response back to you in a day or so, for sure.
And thanks for appreciating my reply above. The ideas there are things I strongly believe and have brought me a lot of peace and happiness and am glad if they've been any help!View Thread
lv2jo's post which mentioned driving and masturbating reminded me of having once lived way out in the country and driving home from the gym in the city late at night. Sometimes I'd grab my towel, pull myself out and have a good time as I drove along, made the ride a lot more pleasant! But a word to pass along if you think you might try jerking off while driving but haven't yet: be careful to be aware of your accelerator foot when you ejaculate. If you're not careful, the physical act of shooting a load of semen can cause you to suddenly increase your car's speed at the same time!
Gotta be careful -- at the least you might get yourself into an embarrassing situation and it could be even worse!View Thread
