    There are times I've been anxious or depressed in my life during which I've used sex as a temporary pick-me-up.

    I don't think that's a bad thing. I realize that I still use an orgasm as a way to make my body feel good, even if I'm not particularly horny. I don't drink or take drugs, I eat a healthy diet, I don't enjoy sitting around and watching TV. So I'll go and jerk off a quick one just for the great boredom-relieving treat that it is.

    I also enjoy sex with others, in part because of the esteem boost I get from other people experiencing my cock (I don't mean that to sound conceited; most people I'm with have comments about how it looks or feels). I guess sex is one of the most powerful things I have available to get me out of my head.

    For instance, I've had a few really, really tough weeks in a row ... work stuff, family stuff, lots of stuff I haven't dealt with before. Now it's Saturday morning, and I'm alone (my son is sleeping late in his bedroom). I already jerked off once this morning, and now I'm probably about to go back and do it again. I have other things I really should be doing, but I just feel that I want and deserve another orgasm!

    Well sex releases chemicals in your body that will make you feel happier. So it makes sense.

    Yep. I've noticed when I'm feeling down or depressed and I jerk off or just get turned on, I'll forget everything that was worrying me. Of course it'll come right back once I'm finished or the mood has passed.

    I would agree with this, it just gives you something to do and focus on, and ignore the stress/anxiety/bad mood. Just make sure it doesn't turn into a compulsion like porn addiction.

    'Been there. When I am feeling down, stressed or anxious - a roll in the hay or a quick wank does the trick - if only for a little while.

    While I'm all for people having sex to help you feel better, in the short term it's made me happier....but in the long run (like the next week, etc...) I usually need/want it again...like any good things, duh...

    endorphins are great...and make you happy....just not for me in the casual sex sense...if it's casual sex the effects are totally negated if not just makes the situation worse...that's just me.

    If you use it to fill a void, when it's over the void is still there.

    It's one of a million different void fillers people use.

    Most people when feeling anxious or down, spend all their energy hunting for ways to temporarily fill the void, rather than peering down into the void itself to see if they can fill it by themselves, without assistance.
