Sweet! How often should I masturbate for optimum concentration powers?
According to Asandra, one or two self-pleasuring sessions a day are plenty. If you masturbate much more than that, you risk depleting neurohormones and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which plays a role in the nervous system. “You can burn out neurohormones if you masturbate too much, which causes stress levels to increase in the brain,” Asandra warns. “Then [your adrenal glands] release adrenaline, and that causes more stress.”
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.
