Being a senior citizen myself, I am glad to see on this site there are many other older people. I have been masturbating since I was 8 years old, and have done it in ever-increasing amounts ever since. Since my late teens I don't think I have ever missed more than a day or two except for reasons beyond my control. I masturbate a lot more now than when I was younger, as I was always fighting it, trying to stop or cut down. In my mid-thirties I finally accepted that I was a masturbator, and had the support of my wife, who encouraged me to do it as much as I wanted to, as long as I didn't hide it. Since then I have masturbated openly in front of her. I think her motive is that she can have as much sex as she wants, anytime she wants it. (She does not masturbate herself). If I have other sex, I always resume masturbating right after, the urge never goes away for me, no matter how much I do it or how much other sex I have. At any rate, I don't think the desire to masturbate diminishes with time, and it actually gets better. I don't have any inhibitions about how much I masturbate, and have a lot of time for it. Also I find that the feeling stays pretty much the same whether or not I ejaculate. These days I have my cock out whenever I have a private time, which is just about all day, most days. It is mostly semi-erect, and I masturbate off and on all day. I can have an orgasm almost anytime I want, I am sure that is from all the years of excessive masturbating. That has also enabled me to delay ejaculation as long as I want, although I purposely ejaculate a few times a week. Not sure if I did 5 or 6 times last week, but it was twice yesterday. For the past l5 years or so semen only drips out of my penis, it no longer shoots or spurts. I find that if I don't masturbate for a couple of hours, I get an erection; then the head of my cock will start itching. If I still delay mastubating, it seems to itch on the inside.
I can only relieve it by masturbating. What I find better about masturbating now: I never lose the desire to do it, it always feel nice, I don't mind how much time I spend at it, and I don't feel any pressure to ejaculate or have orgasms. No wonder they call it the 'Golden Age'.
