Hrm. It can, if it's a situation where you're able to relax. Personally, if I'm having mega-anxiety, it's hard for me to get into enjoying much of anything, but some people find relaxation exercises & such helpful. Masturbation can certainly serve the same type of function. It just depends on how it works for the individual. If it distracts you from your stress or allows you to chill, sure... whatever works!

I tend to find I can ease my anxiety a bit with masturbation. But when i'm having a full blown anxiety attack, I find that rubbing my shoulders; and working out the stress downward from there really helps ease some of the tension beforehand.

It does for me. I feel better when I orgasm at least once a day.

Nope, If anything it gives me more stress for a day or so.

If I can relax enough to enjoy it...it will help quite a bit. Unfortunately, I sometimes have to medicate before I can reach that relaxation point.

If I've had a really stressful day masturbation really helps me sleep. It relaxes my body and makes my mind turn to mush. =)

Not to be overly personal & feel free to ignore the question... but I don't understand this. I can see masturbation not improving your stress level, but how does it make your stress worse?

I have really terrible anxiety. For me, it depends on the type of anxiety. If it's bad day at work type of stress, then yes it can help with that. If I'm mid panic attack, not so much.

It helps me a lot. Sex usually helps me more, but since I don't have a set partner, I don't get it as often as I want.

It depends on the type of anxiety. If it is more of a worrying, general anxiety than i think it does (if you can get into it enough to have a good O). If it is more extreme stress that is is relevant to either the current situation or something happening that day or the next, then often not.

For me, personally, it does no matter what kind of anxiety...but only for a short period of time.

Not for me, nope. The stress actually makes it harder to enjoy masturbating and sex.
