My 35 y/o boyfriend, has a scrape or abrasion on the shaft of his penis. We have an active sex life and were separated for about 5 days, when we tried to be intimate I saw the abrasion, he claims it's from masturbation, I don't believe him, is it possible?
If you boyfriend is circumcised, he is unforeskinned and does not possess a foreskin. It certainly is possible to get friction irrination when an unforeskinned man tries to masturbate. Here are some directions for male masturbation:
Masturbation is relaxing, pleasant, enjoyable, harmless, healthy, normal, and contributes to restful sleep if done before going to bed.
Masturbation is necessary to satisfy the ongoing male physical need to discharge semen to prevent and relieve pain from overfilled seminal vesicles. Frequent masturbation prevents wet dreams. Regular ejaculation is associated with better prostate health. Masturbation is a great stress reliever.
One may masturbate as much or as little as one wishes. There is amount of time that one must wait before doing it again. Some teens find they need to do it three times a day. You may do it again whenever you feel ready.
One may do it in any place where one has privacy. There is no upper or lower age limit for masturbation.
In bed at night or in the shower are two favorite places to masturbate.
The internally-lubricated movable nerve-laden, erogenous foreskin and its gliding action is an important aid to masturbation.
Circumcision was introduced to unforeskin the penis and make it impossible to masturbate. It did not stop masturbation but it made it harder to do and perhaps less enjoyable.
How one does it depends on whether one has an internally lubricated movable foreskin that glides up and down the shaft or whether you have been unforeskinned.
If you are foreskinned, then all you need to do is glide your foreskin back and forth. The foreskin is internally lubricated with lymphatic fluid and glides without friction. The numerous nerves inside the foreskin are stimulated by the motion and generate pleasurable sensations.
Long and vigorous masturbation can cause the foreskin to become edematous and swollen, which is painless and not a cause for alarm. The edema usually goes down within about 24 hours. Pulling back too hard is apt to stretch the frenulum and may tear it.
If you are unforeskinned and the skin is taut and immovable, then you will need some lubrication and you need to slide your hand up and down the shaft. You will likely injure yourself without lubricant. Friction burns are common when a male without foreskin masturbates without lubricant. Some lubricants are baby oil, vegetable oil, personal lubricant, soapy water, and saliva.
It is common for an unforeskinned male, who has been deprived of his in ternally lubricated foreskin, to have friction irritation if he does not apply external lubricant.
