    I'm sorta confused (I used that sentence so often)... some people talk about having sex/jerk off several times a day... some say it's all about testosterone levels which affect the libido, but even if I had the libido of a deer in mating season (does that count as a proper comparison?) ... it wouldn't help me cause my penis gets red even from jerking off several days in a row (oh yes not jerking off a single time during a day is not uncommon for me), doing it twice a day makes it guaranteed that it gets them.

    Some people told me it's cause i dont use lube, but I don't think it can be blamed for everything... I'm even uncut...

    Isn't there something in the organism responsible for helping the cock recover? Not talking about libido here... helping it recover... is there any way to improve ones "recovery"? Are there diseases making such things slower? Diabetes? Is there any medicine or special diets one could take to get better?

    Thank you for your support

    I remember in college I could jerk off, fuck my gf an hour later and jerk off again that night.

    i got the same problem man. I have really bad recovery time, but only when it comes to masturbation, sex doesn't seem to have the same effect on me. I could have sex 3 times a day and have really good erections, but after I jack off the first time my erections aren't as good the rest of the day, maybe even a coupe following days.

    I try to avoid masturbating too much, but sometimes that's hard. I also only seem to notice negative effects after i ejaculate from masturbation.

    so i'd be interested to here some tips people have too

    Perhaps your penis is just worn out and needs a few days break. Masterbation is tougher on the penile tissue than sex and you tend to focus the pressure and friction around the glans (head), so it can get worn out. My recommendation would be a hot bath and three days rest, to rejuvenate the tissues. If you find it difficult to abstain that long then go for a few minutes walk each time that you feel tempted.

    You should stop when it becomes red. Trust me...if you keep masturbating you will end up with friction burns and a scabby penis.

    You might want to try using some lube.

    Recovery time (called the 'refractory period') is different for every guy. If I was really bored...or horny then I could masturbate one after the other, three times.

    Usually I can masturbate within 10 minutes of ejaculating. Especially if I see a good porno. Which is actually part of the problem.

    Internet porn can be overstimulating.

    If you are:

    Overweight
    Smoke
    On medications
    Depressed

    Then that would make your refractory period longer. The red marks are caused by friction between your hand and your penis. Try moisturising your penis with a moisturiser or hair conditioner, that works well.

    Also lube will help. Or spit. E45 cream is good as well which is a moisturising cream but you can use it as lubrication too.

    lube should reduce friction burn.

    I never bought lube if ever then I used vaseline but that stuff runs out so quickly ....

    My jerking off usually lasts less than 2 minutes and often even less than 1.

    I'm not overweight, I don't drink/smoke, I dont take any serious medication, but I am lately under lot of stress and work and feel worried.

    Your recovery time as far as desire and performance is hormonally regulated. Surprisingly it is not testosterone but instead is the hormone prolactin.

    In females this hormone has effects on lactation, but it is present in males. In the male prolactin is a controller for recovery time. If in a male prolactin levels are elevated it will cause problems with erections AND it will increase recovery time between sex acts radically.

    As has been stated the use of proper lubrication should relieve the dryness and other skin related problems. Performance and desire however can sometimes be greatly improved by a prolactin blocker. The drug cabergoline is the one most often used. The main purpose of this drug is to treat elevated prolactin levels associated with a type of tumor called a "prolactinoma". If used to treat a non tumor related condition the dosage is very low and amounts to 1 single pill divided in half taken over two days each of every week. Checking for elevated prolactin requires a blood draw and an MD with his head placed in a location other than his rear end. Most MD's hate it when the patients know anything, and hate it even more when they actually have to do something.

    Every man needs to have a complete hormone panel done every 5 years. The panel needs to include Serum Testosterone, Free Floating Testosterone, Estrogen, DHT and Prolactin.

    If you do not have a track record of higher hormone levels an MD under FDA guidelines cannot do hormone replacement until a male almost qualifies as female. There are some which will not prescribe it even then.

    The main thing is to take anything that has the possibility of having an organic cause seriously.

    Once that is ruled out go for the lube, and the other basic average health causes.

    The other thing is that a good j/o session is like sex in that if you apply pressure to yourself to accomplish some given thing other than having a good time you usually end up disappointed.

    Good Luck on this one.

    I'm late 50's now, but I must have been a sex machine or a freak in my 20's. back then, I used to cum, never loose my erection, and just keep fucking. it was that time...after my first O and getting to my second O.... that I made my gal cum. after my second O, give me 15-20 minutes and I would be hard again, ready to go for 3. it was not unusual for a 1/2 dozen erections in nite's time, say midnite to 8am. I had many women tell me I was one of few guys who could match their appetite. keep in mind, that my cock got sucked a lot to achieve those erections, but it got the job done.
