Is it bad to masturbate with vicks?

Male or female?: The medicated camphor in the petroleum of the Vicks is irritating to mucous membranes.

What to do if I feel disgusted/bad after masturbation?

What to do if I feel disgusted/bad after masturbation?

See through it: After climax, especially in men, there's a surge of prolactin that causes a loss of interest in sex for a few minutes. This isn't anything "spiritual" -- it's biological. Stop and reflect that what you're doing is keeping you comfortable so you can do other things, and preparing you mentally and physically for being an adult.

Is it bad to masturbate with vicks? And if I already did it what could happen other than the burning?

If irritation persists - go to urgent care or dr. Best! ...Read more
