So yes, you can get addicted to masturbation, just as you can with almost any ridiculously pleasurable experience. Asandra says it takes “prolonged years of excessive (more than three or four times a day) masturbation” to drain your brain of acetylcholin, which should come as good news to high-school students and camgirls everywhere.
All right. I’m going to procrasturbate!
Great! But before you do, keep in mind that procrasturbation is a bit of a double-edged sword. If you’re totally overwhelmed by a looming deadline, sure, masturbation might help you relax and step down from the ledge. But don’t get too relaxed, Weiss warns.
“Once you’re relaxed, you make better decisions, but if you’re too relaxed, you won’t want to [act on] those decisions,” says Weiss, who advocates getting physically active as a way to boost energy levels. “A body in motion tends to stay in motion. The more you stay on the couch, the more you’ll find things to do on the couch... like masturbate.”
