Something I urge you to consider, regardless of how often or how rarely you decide to ejaculate is this: HONOR YOUR SEMEN!
QUESTION: I love the bate as much as anything in life, but the only drawback is it can sure be messy! I mean, wet, and that gets cold so soon. I’m already in my 20’s, but I still spurt halfway across the room, sometimes several times a day. I’m a big-time gusher. Should I shoot into a sock, like I heard about? What are some other ways to deal with all this goopy semen everywhere?
RESPONSE: Well, unless you choose to take up edging or semen retention, which means to deliberately NOT ejaculate so often, there are some practical alternatives. Yes, I remember when I was in my late teens and early twenties sometimes feeling flooded with an abundance of semen! All over everything. Sure, the sock thing works, and maybe you already keep “cum rags” around or use a lot of tissue and paper towel for clean-up.
Something I urge you to consider, regardless of how often or how rarely you decide to ejaculate is this: HONOR YOUR SEMEN! Don’t treat it like a waste product, or just an inconvenient annoyance to immediately be cleaned up, thrown away, or the evidence hidden. Even if you “shoot into a sock” or a cum rag, deal with the semen consciously, as something of value, to be treated honorably. Apply full awareness to its disposal.
Consider how your semen truly is the essence of your body and of who you are, containing all the chromosomal DNA required to create your offspring genetically. It is, in a literal sense, the distilled and most potent product not only of your body, also of all the ancestors leading to you and everything you are as a human being. So, deal with it consciously. Some men (like me) have a habit of eating their seed, which I began to do at age 12 or 13 when I first ejaculated. Unlike some, I love the taste and consistency, plus it always prevented making quite such a mess. It’s also like taking a sacrament, quite honestly.
That strikes me as a decent way to honor your semen. Or if the thought makes you feel squeamish, you can smear your semen on your body, anoint your brow with it, and when you do wash it off, just mentally thank your body for this precious gift. If you use tissues or collect semen in your hand and don’t want to ingest it, perhaps dig a little hole in the soil of a houseplant or in a flowerbed outside and deposit it there. It’s a kind of recycling back to Nature. If you collect it in washables, put it in the laundry with (again) a little silent thank you to your body for the wonderful gift of your seed. Sometimes I’ve burned tissues I caught my seed in, in a fireplace, as a sort of “fire sacrifice.”
If this sounds a bit “woo-woo” and precious to you, be aware that the idea is not new at all! Since ancient times, in many traditional societies, men and boys were encouraged to place their semen in holes in the fields to add to the fertility of the soil in a magical or spiritual sense. Today, this is also a nice bit of consciously shifting from considering it a “mess,” or a “waste product,” to something precious and worthy of a little care to dispose of it in a meaningful way. It becomes part of honoring masturbation as a valuable and honorable thing.
Of course, as I practice semen retention now, I seldom require such recourse, but in truth, I am even more reverent of it when I do ejaculate. This conscious treatment of semen can serve as part of savoring the afterglow of your sessions, and fully absorbing the amazing pleasure you have generated.
