I have mentioned before, in my books, that a man's brain knows the difference between when he masturbates and when he has had actual sex. By “actual sex” I mean involving a second (or third, or fourth...) person. Let me be clear, there are physiological differences, as well as psychological, that impact his behavior after the fact.
When a man masturbates, the brain, for obvious reasons, knows there is no chance of that act resulting in procreation. Yes, even if you are jerking off into a test tube to produce an off-spring, the brain thinks there is no chance of inseminating a woman. The brain controls the body. Therefore, the body knows. And there is a difference in what happens.
When a man masturbates, he satisfies certain physical and mental desires, but not certain emotional and psychological needs of the body and brain. That explains why a man may masturbate on a regular basis, whether once every day or so, or more often. If he were to have actual sex, involving a partner, he may skip one or more of his regular masturbation sessions. The main reason for all this is that the brain/body releases different chemicals, endorphins, etc.
It's this difference that changes his overall desire for sex and his behavior after. The post sexual drop after masturbation is much less detrimental to the desire for repeated sexual activity. As you all know by now, if you have been denying a man the sexual release he wants for several days, weeks, or even months, the post sexual drop can last up to a couple of weeks. Whereas, if he simply masturbated on his own, the drop may not last more than a day. However, there is another factor involved... Fantasies!
I will explain how fantasy plays a part in this post sexual drop and how you can use it to your advantage, in my next post.
