Ejaculating creates a dopamine blast in the brain that goes through a withdrawl period that make craving that "hit" again. Nature wants us to be addicted to sex to preserve the species. 2. Everyone's Wired for Sexual Addiction | Reuniting
I gave up ejaculating on my own from time to time and really liked the dreams that I'd have. Probably only a couple weeks at a time inbetween. I would find that the energy of being turned on can be moved up the body and kind of used to energize me, instead of tossing the energy away all the time. That I would try to feel the electricity through my body instead of just with my member. Playing with that awareness as sort of redirecting the focus or helping to amplify energy sensing in the other parts of me.
It's a balancing thing, I think. And the sperm factory has a way of trying to keep up with what ever level you are doing, kind of. The less you do ejaculate, the less sperm gets produced. Of coarse it gets backed up too. Eventually it starts to not feel good down there, the backing up will ache too much, and you will either do yourself or have a fun dream.
The other thing about ejaculating is it changes your brain chemistry, you get a dopamine high that goes through a withdrawl period. The withdrawl period is the brain trying to eqaulize what's missing and the instinct is to orgasm again, since that will make another brain chemical spike. It may be healthier and more satisfying to wait out the withdrawl and then the act will be more loving and full even if you are by yourself. Sort of like waiting for fruit to be ripe before picking it. Not sure how long the recovery period is to wait out the withdrawl though.
