Why is it that if I go nearly a week without masturbating I feel more edgy. I don't feel aggressive, but I can sometimes just lack concentration and feel weird... I didn't realize what was wrong, after masturbating I felt better. Could it just be stress that masturbation relieves rather then stress caused by lack of sexual release, or could it be a bit of both? Either way it doesn't really matter much to me, I used to feel kinda guilty about such things till I visited this site, now I've realized it's good to understand my sexual identity rather then be afraid [Smile]

Just wondering whether it's true lack of sexual release causes stress.

Masturbation can relieve stress, yes. I'm not sure why you feel "edgy" if you don't masturbate, but if it helps you to masturbate at least once a week so you feel better, there is no harm in doing so.

Guess it's just I use it to relieve stress... So when I don't do it I guess I feel more stressed.

Plus it's probably other things in my life, end of school, trying to get into uni. Deciding what I want to do... so I suppose it's silly of me to blame it on masturbation.

By the way, I like the quote in your signature.
