Self pleasuring on Paleo.

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created August 02, 2012 at 7:43 AM

First, I'm sorry if this question is against the rules here. But I hope it isn't closed. Are you "self-pleasuring" (masturbating) yourself more or less since eating this high meat, veggie and fruit diet? Many may not want to respond because they don't want to harm their self-respect and pride by announcing this, but you could hint at what the answer would be without actually saying it, or provide your input on the subject that you think would benefit us all.

To foreveryoung. Jacking off desensitizes you over time, there's no argument there. And I'm not there to give her an orgasm, I'm there because the temptation was too great, and it feels good for me.

HenryS: Jacking off is not the cause of poor sex- a lack of emotional and physical connection is the cause, and neither will be there if you are having sex with her for the sole purpose of your orgasm without consideration of hers- that is, you should be going into sex to give her an orgasm, not to achieve yours.

YOu can tell if you're "truly" attracted to a woman just by looking at her? Interesting for someone who seems more interested in platonic love. Not that platonic love is a bad things- it's great. But seems a bit contradictory given what you've written above.

I am married, so I use my husband to pleasure myself(sorry honey), and I notice that we have a slightly more active sex life, but not much more(it was pretty good to begin with). I think since my body composition has improved, I am just a little more confident prancing around naked in the daytime so it opens up new opportunities.

I am less, but this is more of a conscious choice. I didn't really notice any change in my sex drive at all, but less solo work has resulted in more desire (and success) to find the real thing. I figure 'whole' sex (like whole food) as opposed to 'artificial sex' is the paleo way. :)

both my husband and i agree that paleo has leveled us out. no more swinging highs and lows in desire. that wasnt the case at first, when we were starting out first 6-9 months paleo, he really dropped down in desire,and that scared me, but we gave it time and after we were done with ketosis and losing weight, and added consistant weight lifting and some good carbs back so came back desire, but on a more even level. now we are at a few good quality sessions a week. my desire to seek out self pleasuring or electronic devices really isnt there anymore and id rather save it to enhance the real deal. the extensive toy box has got moved to the back of closet and things have gotten a lot more primal in the bedroom.

I'm a young guy, and I noticed quite a difference eating paleo, especially eating more meat.

My sex drive became much more level, and more of a background process. I have a lot more control of arousal than before. So self-pleasuring doesn't occur often, but when it does I do notice a negative difference in energy. So I avoid it.

It'd be cool to find out if any other guys have experienced this; I also developed a new type of attraction. When I see a woman that I am truly attracted to, I have a desire to protect, and to be a companion primarily, and the desire for sex is really put on the back burner.

Maybe I'm just a weirdo though, haha.

Married for 1 year, but been together for almost 8 years. He's 29, I'm 30. I have noticed that the more sex we have leads to greater sexual arousal for me throughout the day, so even if we're having sex 5-6 times per week, he probably still masturbates once a day in addition to that, and maybe it's every other day for me. I have definitely noticed over the years, no matter what we're eating or in what kind of shape we've been in, if we start to pick things up and have more sex, it ends up having a multiplier effect. If we're super busy or miss a few days, or one of us has to travel for work, it will subside a bit, but then we can get on a hot streak again pretty easily. But it does seem to self perpetuate arousal overall, including masturbation.

As a celibate man, I've noticed that I am better able to abstain from any such activity when my diet is clean. Increasing my workouts usually will increase my drive, however it is easier to resist any such temptations alone or with others. Whether or not this is due to my diet, or the self control that is developed by the diligence that it requires, I am not sure.

The amount of masturbation that goes on simply depends upon whether or not I'm seeing someone at the time, and I would imagine that the same goes for most other unmarried kids in their 20s. If I have a girlfriend, then the amount drops considerably. If I'm not dating someone, then it increases. It doesn't bother me to admit that. Imagination > porn.

If you want to know why you (maybe you) should be choosing sex over masturbation, then look at this:

It would also be useful for posters to indicate if they're losing, maintaining, or gaining weight. Caloric status has been shown to impact libido.

My previous (high-carb) diet stressed me out and killed my sex drive, and ketosis seems to have fixed this. Not a stab at carbs per se but more of a personal observation.

I would say that it would greatly depend on your level of physical activity,and overall fitness to go along with the paleo lifestyle. Being physically active, and generally fit will increase your testosterone levels which in most cases will increase your need for sexual activity.

I am losing weight and in ketosis most of the time. My sex drive has increased, much to my husband's satisfaction, but I masturbate less now than before. Lots of variables to consider, but diet, weight loss, and feeling generally better about myself has a great deal to do with it.

My sex drive had dropped considerably. I did have ovary issues last year though so I can't be sure that's not a huge contributor, but my high/quality fat intake doesn't seem to help. I had to start using an estrogen/progesterone topical and ever since it's been completely back to normal, so yeah, constantly! In that way I guess I would say the diet is currently no hinderance at all? As long as my hormone levels are good: pretty much daily.

I don't think the Paleo diet has an effect on how much I wank. I still do it several times a day, just like when I was eating a SAD diet.
