Masturbation rates sore in the Coronavirus Pandemic
We are all dealing with the reality that we’ve been commanded to stay at home for the foreseeable future in many different ways, I know some of us couldn’t feel less horny. But a whole lot of couples are getting kinky with our live-in partners our stock of rope, spanking paddles from here and the bespoke Etsy shop are really depleted. As well as getting kinky if you have someone at home there is something else getting millions through the monotony and occasional waves of all-encompassing panic yeah masturbation. Like, so much more.
Now, if you are here you are probably like me a pleasure-seeking person. I love sex in any form talking about it, watching it, writing about it, thinking about it, and, of course, having it, whether it’s with a partner or by myself. During a normal week, say 10 months ago one which we have not been Locked up by a global pandemic, I would probably get myself off at least two or three times. But now that I can’t leave the house, ever and that I’m working from my bedroom daily. A feel-good activity that requires a great deal of concentration was needed anything to stop me thinking of this existential crisis before us, And like many others in this time of need, I’ve turned to wanking a lot. 🙂
But there is science backing me that this increase in wanking is actually a great idea. Pleasure and self-pleasure is an excellent stress reliever as many of us are understandably feeling intense worry in the pandemic, masturbation is about way more than just delivering physical pleasure while in isolation it can help you unwind in ways that even watching a tv show or cracking open a bottle of wine.

NO, I AM NOT STAYING WANKING WILL STOP YOU CATCHING COVID.
