Healing the Sore Penis After Masturbation Marathons

Most men masturbate. And when they do, they usually have their own unique way of getting the most out of the experience. For some, a quickie is all they need and they are on their way. But for others, a masturbation marathon isn't out of the question - and in fact, might be the norm. While this can be an interesting way for a guy to test his mettle or enjoy long hours of pleasure on a lonely night, the result can be a very sore penis the next day.

So what's a guy to do? Nobody wants to give up masturbation marathons, but nobody wants a sore penis, either. The key here is to know how to avoid a sore penis if at all possible - and if it does happen anyway, knowing how to ease the sore penis skin is a sure way to get a guy back in shape in no time.

Preparing for the marathon

As the old wives' tale says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That's a saying that rings true for almost anything, and that includes masturbation soreness. By taking a few steps before and during his marathon session, a guy can avoid the "cures" that he might be reaching for if he winds up with a sore penis. Here's what he can do.

1) Load up on lube. Though it can be tempting to try dry masturbation, most men are going to wind up in a world of hurt if they do that as part of an all-day interlude. A guy should start out using lube and continue to do so, reapplying it when it wears away. This might mean using half a bottle or more, but that's okay. Avoiding a sore penis is worth it!

2) Vary the grip. Some men have their masturbation routine down, and that's fine for a quickie now and then. But those engaging in a marathon session might want to take their time and explore new worlds, so to speak. Changing up the grip can avoid too much pressure on one area of the penis, which in turn helps a guy maintain good penis sensation all over his equipment.

3) Remember no pain doesn't mean no damage. When a man is really aroused, he might ignore pain signals - or he might not feel them at all. It's only in the aftermath that a guy realizes he hurt his delicate penis skin. To compensate for this rush of hormones that cancel out the pain signals, a guy should stop periodically to consider what he's doing, and whether he needs to change his grip or apply more lube.

What to do about a sore penis?

So what if the prevention steps didn't work? Then it's time to ease the sore penis. Here's how a guy can perform a little TLC for his favorite equipment.

1) Take some time off. A guy who is feeling the not-so-sweet fruits of his labor should take some time away from sexual activity while his penis has a chance to heal. A few days of no touching should be enough to let the skin heal and rejuvenate.

2) Maintain good penis care. In the meantime, good penis care is essential. A guy should wash gently in the shower, never scrub, and pat the skin dry when he's done. He should also take care to watch any irritations or abrasions on the penis, so that he can tell if they are getting worse.

3) Use a penis health crème. The skin will need a little boost in healing, which can be had with a top-notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). He should look specifically for a crème with Shea butter and vitamin E, which provide not only healing, but plenty of hydration to help a guy avoid the dry, sore penis that can result from excessive masturbation.
