I'm hard as fuck. Ladies may not understand how integrated masturbation is in male culture because we don't like discussing it, even among ourselves, but most guys jerk off at least every other day even though the immediate after-effects of doing it are often feelings of shame and self-hatred that can sometimes linger for days afterward. Granted, this doesn't apply to all men, but it definitely applies to me. And let me tell you, withholding from it is not easy. I want to cum, I want to climax, I want instant ecstasy and gratification. But no, fuck that, it's too easy, too available, too simple, too within reach.
