stimulation of the genitals with the hand for sexual pleasure. I'm not saying that you should masturbate day and night 24-7.. but In my opinion I have found that a lot of clarity comes from a good manual release otherwise commonly known to most as masturbation.Also referred to as rubbing one off,choking the chicken, corking the bat, cranking the shank,fisting your mister,jerkin'the gherkin,pocket pinball, pocket pool, polishing the knob,flick the bean,polishing the rocket, pounding your flounder,roping the pony, spanking the monkey, teasing the weasel,whipping the willy,yanking the crank,rub one off,jack off,Jill off,dropping the kids off at the pool and countless others that I can't think of at the moment. Anyhew lets get back on topic, so it's been my insight that when my brain gets cluttered with a bunch of unsavory thoughts due to lack of physical intimacy,you know that urge to make hasty decisions based on thinking with that head with no brain a simpler and less costly solution which is masturbation leads me to an instant level of clarity. Now I can't speak for others only voice my opinion on the subject which is why I love insight from my readers so please feel free to comment and share. Oh,before I close this out I wanted to make one more point.. when we're horny we tend to make a lot of bad choices..Not Everyone! such as infidelity,same sex hookups,bad sexual partners,spending money for sex as well. Mentally you're prepared to deal with those thoughts better if they are not the basis of your thought process. I think masturbation can also alter your mood in general as well.
