A question for either men and women in a monogamous relationship: I see gf only three times or so per week and masturbate often. Frequent jerking off doesn't affect my performance with gf, but I haven't mentioned this to her because I have a friend whose lover gets annoyed when he masturbates, seeing it as a behavior that he isn't satisfied. I don't want to discuss this with her. Not encumbered by any misplaced Puritan ethic, I do it unabashedly but still wonder if keeping this from her may someday adversely affect our relationship. Have any of you noticed any impact masturbation has on your relationship?
