In yesterday’s sloppy rush job about dopamine, we finished on an ominous note. The human body is a pretty flawless piece of work, which is why I can drink 10 beers on an empty stomach and not wake up dead. That’s even more impressive when you consider you’re mostly membranes of tissue and water. (And perhaps parasites, yes.) Dig this: after the chemical dump of dopamine that follows an orgasm, your body gets flooded with Prolactin. Despite the name, it is not a synthetic breast milk substitute.
Prolactin is a very curious substance. Although the Church of the SubGenius teaches us that “Too much is always better than not enough,” when it comes to sex hormones, more is definitely less. Having too much prolactin in your system has been implicated as a major cause of “erectile dysfunction,” or as it’s known scientifically, Flop-wang. Based upon studies involving cocaine addicts and chronic masturbators (more than once per day would qualify you) it takes around 2 weeks for your body to correct a prolactin imbalance....assuming you stop the behavior that’s causing it.
Perhaps the coolest feature of prolactin is the feedback loop the body uses to dish it out—although Santa does not exist, and God probably isn’t watching us, even from a distance, your brain knows when you’re touching yourself.

I'll take a multivitamin, drink some water, and not worry about the chemical processes. It's fun and healthier than getting drunk.

I remember when I was on vacation, I couldn't fap because people were around me all the time. So, I couldn't fap for like a week or so and when I came home I fapped and it really felt good.

I lasted 12 days. I noticed I got more impatient, aggressive, and my strength went up a bit.
