How do I continue masturbating after cumming? Whenever I cum it just drains some energy out of me.

Hi Maximil,

People with penises tend to need a brief break after ejaculation which is the "refractory period." This is the amount of time when the body is not able to achieve orgasm again. The length of that time depends from person to person but it can be around 15-20 minutes. People with vulvas don't have this same refractory period but some experience disinterest in continual sexual contact after, again it varies from person to person. There is a lot more physiology going on there which we can dive into if you are curious but I was wondering if you could say a little more context around this question before we jump into all of that?
