Lighten up: The real sex organ is the brain. Don't abuse your penis if you aren't really mentally into it. After several minutes, take a break and rest awhile until you feel in your head that it is clearly time to try again. Such mental cycling may be very rewarding.

When I masturbate, my skin rubs on my pubic hair and causes a red painful area over time. Is there anything I can do to keep my skin from irritation?

Friction Burn: 2 things that could help. One, you could use lotion or lubricant to reduce friction when sliding back and forth over the area. You might also, if agreeable to you try to trim the hair in the area (shorter hair will not pull as much) or even try shaving that one little area or the hair so it isn't caught. You could stop masturbating but there's no fun in that solution! ...Read more

Irritation in my penis. Dnt have discharge or feel pain when urinating. Pain started when I held back sperm during masturbation.?

Rest: Not sure what you mean by pain. Is it sharp/dull? How bad on a scale of 0-10.

If you're not having discharge, burning when urinating, may be related to just the trauma of the act.

In that case - probably rest and ice is best.

If you're having fever, testicular pain, change in your sensation / difficulty urinating - go and see a doctor. ...Read more

Foreskin Foresight: That's probably the margin where the foreskin was removed during your briss...mazel tov...So any kind of repeated friction could irritate that area. Yes possibly from masturbation, rough sex, a bottle of herring, an empty milk bottle, a sock, a baseball mitt or even a piece of liver (just ask Portnoy).I wouldn't worry too much unless it gets infected & hurts a lot. In that case, I'd lay off the herring. ...Read more

I was masturbating with a pencil and I didn't feel any irritation, once I was done, as I was cleaning the pencil I saw blood. I've finished my period.

Other choices: A pencil is not a great choice as a sexual toy for masturbation as it is sharp and could potentially cause an injury. Consider buying a toy specifically designed for this purpose as it will work better and help you avoid getting hurt. Monitor the bleeding and if it continues see your Obgyn for an exam ...Read more
