For younger readers, this story should provide a happy outlook in the coming years!
The sensation of a growing erection, of feeling the arousal build and build, sensing that intense glow deep inside as the climax approaches and then the breathtaking rush of one ejaculation after the next. The sexual pleasure we enjoy drives us to repeat the experience time and again. For most of us, once we've discovered the joy of masturbation, we're hooked! And whether it's going solo or being with ones spouse or partner, we find ourselves thinking about sex and doing it with fair regularity.
During a particularly satisfying edging* session early this morning I began thinking of just how regular it had been since I made my own discovery of jacking off when I was 15. So, just for fun, and since I'm somewhat of a numbers guy, I decided to do some simple math and come up with a few stats on my nearly 55 years of sexual activity. Fortunately, I've taken some occasional measurements in past years, and I've kept a rough mental track of the frequency of different activities, nothing scientific, but enough so as to have a rough gauge as to how much of this or that I've produced.
So, having turned a young 69 a few days ago, I thought I'd try to estimate how many times I've masturbated, how many hours I've devoted to edging, how many litres of pre-cum I've produced and the same for semen. Here's what I came up with, and I've done my best to err on the conservative side [meaning, I'm fairly sure that the actual number is higher]:
*10,700 masturbation sessions
*9.4 litres of Cowpers fluid [a.k.a pre-cum], or nearly 2.5 gallons
*52 litres of semen [equivalent to over 13 gallons]
*9,250 hours of edging [or about 385 days]
Okay, call me weird but, as I said, I wanted to tote up a few numbers for the fun of it, and from the numbers have a better sense of the quantitative dimension of the sexual pleasure I've enjoyed over the years. Interestingly or otherwise, the ratio of semen to Cowper's fluid would be a good deal greater except that I don't allow myself to reach a climax during most of my edging sessions [which span the last 18 years]. I should probably mention too that my best estimate for the amount of semen and pre-cum that I've produced includes both solo and partner sex.
There are probably some readers especially those over 50 who would likely come up with numbers exceeding what I listed above. I don't wish to claim any record, believe me. While I've placed a high priority on sexual activity ever since I was a teen, the level of that activity is purely individual, and it's no doubt different from others on both the lower and higher side!
Naturally, I'd be interested to know what others have experienced over the years, numbers-wise. Over the coming weeks/months, I'll tune back in to see if anybody has totted up their numbers and submitted them here!
*For readers unfamiliar with edging, it's a way of providing intense pleasure for extended periods of time, maintaining the self-control needed to either not go over the edge at all, or to be able to choose when to do so and then ejaculate. Another term for it is orgasm control and denial. By using different strokes, varying the pace, touching and massaging my testes and the surrounding area, I'm able to stay at or close to the edge without coming off for two and a half to three hours most mornings and occasionally four or five. I usually don't let myself reach a climax, preferring instead to wait until my wife and I have the opportunity to get together.
