Hey does it occur to anybody in here , that depression or sadness causes them to want to fap ( ussually to deal with it ) ?

If else do you think its healthy at all ? Specillay if it doesnt go right with your ideals or morals?

It's a tension reliever, but then there are better tension relievers out there that actually leave you in a better mental state afterwards, because you are processing your stuff rather than short circuiting your brain.

1. When I'm depressed, the last thing on my mind is masturbating. I have no sex drive when I'm depressed. (not that masturbation is sex. I can hear you typing that. Stop).

2. Masturbation could maybe even make you feel worse afterward due to the massive influx of serotonin into the brain post-orgasm.

3. You might be vitamin D deficient. Did you know that most people on the planet are? And one of the most recognizable signs is depression.*

You should especially be mindful of this if you are non-pale, as darker skin tones are the most prone to vitamin D deficiency.

This link is super good:
https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/depression/

The section under the "So, what does recent research say?" links to and summarizes recent research in this area. And takes a very SJ approach in interpreting the data. Lol it's so rage-inducing and annoying, but whatever it's still good. (the entire time I'm reading it, I'm like "for fucks sake it's so obvious that there's a link, why do you need a study to tell you what you already know!?" and the way it's written is as if there's no way to POSSIBLY know without painstakingly turning through every study done on the topic. It's very anti- brain usage. Very anti- thinking for oneself. Very anti- common sense)


*a link between vitamin D and depression cannot be proven, but there does exist a trend among depressed people: multiple studies show that those of the depression group tend to have too-low levels of vitamin D. And certainly lower than the non-depressed control group.

What you are doing is positively reinforcing negative emotions with a dopamine rush.
I don't think so. By that logic, no matter what you do to improve your mood (eat chocolate, go out with friends, take meds, exercise), you would be reinforcing the depression. How would you get out of that cycle?

Sometimes. It's like momentary relief, and usually helps me fall asleep, which also provides relief.

But usually when I'm depressed I just lose my sex drive entirely. Very annoying :dry:

THIS. THREAD. TITLE. THO :laughing:

Amazing title aside. I think I've done it twice when I wasn't in a good mood? :0c
All I remember is it made me feel much much worse
And the whole process in and of itself was extremely difficult

I just can't do it when I'm depressed :frustrating:

No, even when I'm in the grips of depression I usually masturbate just to get my mind off of it. When I'm feeling horny it's hard to focus and becomes very distracting.
