How to Handle The Post-Bate Munchies

Question: When I finish bating, I have a sudden craving for chocolate. Is it normal to crave something after finishing?

Response: Part of my mission to encourage male masturbators is to urge you to consider your self-pleasure as part of a healthy practice of trying to love yourself better and better every day. You may be aware that science has discovered a chemical in chocolate similar to the brain chemistry of feeling “In Love,” which can make you feel euphoric, a bit crazy and kind of high, but basically really happy. If you go the chocolate route, you might consider dark, non-dairy chocolate, just to keep feeling good, as a lot of sugar and dairy products don’t really sit well with lots of guys.

So maybe loving yourself through masturbatory excellence is not totally different from being in love with someone else. Anyway, a major benefit of masturbation is in the way it influences your brain to release all sorts of nice pleasure-reward chemicals and hormones into your body.

You can really add to the benefits and lasting enjoyment of a masturbation session by deliberately giving yourself time at the end of the session to simply relax completely, savor the afterglow — do nothing but absorb the delicious sensations you’ve generated. Try to resist the urge to immediately clean up any mess, or to jump up and do something else.

At the same time, a good masturbation session can be somewhat exhausting while it’s also exhilarating, and you may have honorably worked up an appetite.

A treat such as chocolate is an excellent reward for your efforts!

    Yes, its the release of all those amazing chemicals in our brain that (can) make us addicted to our sport. Great to know chocolate is yet another natural way to release those amazing & pleasurable chemicals too (as I sit here touching myself). I had read there are some nutritional benefits too. Now to add a bit of chocolate after a masturbation session, certainly willing to give it a try.

    All in favor of eating some chocolate instead of cleaning up the mess afterwards? I agree its a great idea to resist cleaning up right away. Just stay still and savor the afterglow.

    I am 54 years old. A chronic masturbator. I have the normal soft cock now and then, like other guys my age and I understand that. I am curious how to get more volume for ejoculation. I love to edge for hours on end but just don’t seem to have much volume when I orgasm. Is this just a normal part of the aging process as well?

      Hey Dan, same here. I don’t know if there’s a genuine recipe or recommendation for increasing volume. But at 63 I know the same thing(s), don’t get erect like I used to nor do I make as much sperm/ejaculate as I used to either. Presume its just how things work out as we get older. Nature knows ,,,, we don’t need the volume of seed like we used to in our younger more fertile days. But of course I still enjoy masturbating & plan to continue for years to come/cum.

        Yes, Dan, and apalmer5… most men experience marked reduction of semen volume as we age past middle age, especially. Certainly to hydrate well (drink plenty of water), massage your balls regularly may help. Kegels, PC crunches, anal breathing, are good for quality of erections, keeping the uro-genital area toned. Of course, the pleasure you continue to feel matters most! – BPG
