Reliable statistics are hard to come by where masturbation is concerned, but it does seem that more Americans are taking sexual matters into their own hands more often. Certainly the availability of vast channels of porn on computers, phones and other instruments makes it easy to find stimulating material for quick "hands-on" session whenever and wherever a guy wishes - including at work. Since there are distinct penis health advantages to masturbation - and it makes a nice alternative to just another coffee break - this trend is understandable. Still, there are certain considerations to keep in mind when masturbating at work.

It’s the boss’s internet.

Surfing for porn in the privacy of one’s own home is one thing; doing it at work can be grounds for dismissal. Many businesses have firewalls in place to keep horny workers from spending the entire day watching scenes of unbridled lust. But even those that don’t may still be monitored so that the boss knows what his employees are watching. It’s better for a guy to just use his own imagination - or catch a few views on his phone (but NOT while using the office WiFi connection!)

No place for exhibitionism.

Masturbation is one thing; exhibitionism is another and is likely to lead to dismissal (or at least to some embarrassment). It’s tempting to masturbate at one’s desk, especially if a guy has his own office and a door that can lock. But most of the time it’s safer to take advantage of the men’s room for work masturbation. Yes, that means not getting into a lot of moaning or stroking too loudly if others are sharing the facilities - but most men can deal with that. Besides, if by some chance a guy does get caught self-fondling in the stalls, he’s likely to just get heckled a bit instead of fired.

Some men think it’s risk-free to masturbate after hours at their desk, after most people have gone home. But don’t forget the cleaning staff, who may not knock before coming in.

Clean up.

When masturbating in the men’s room, be sure to clean up thoroughly afterward. No man wants to enter a stall and find another guy’s stray drops of semen on the toilet or the floor. And this should go without saying, but be sure to wash the hands thoroughly when done.

Good stress relief.

Ok, it’s not a news flash that the office can be intensely stressing - and that’s a good reason to masturbate. Self-stimulating helps to de-stress a guy, which can help renew his energy and make him more productive. And unlike that cup of coffee, it’s caffeine-free and less likely to make him feel all jittery afterwards.

Helps with anger management.

Everyone has times when they would like to pound that obnoxious co-worker into the ground or make their boss pay for humiliating them during a presentation. Finding long term solutions to anger issues is important - but self-stroking can be a short term way to deal with it. Most men feel much calmer and more at peace after masturbation.

Don’t overshare.

More and more men enjoy posting pictures and videos of themselves masturbating. It’s best for a guy to refrain from posting his work wanking. If he does, he should definitely not mention that the activity occurred at work - just in case it somehow comes across the radar screen of someone else in the company who may forward it to the boss.

With caution and common sense, a man can enjoy some masturbation sessions while at work. And of course masturbation is even better if the penis is healthy, so continue to use a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . A crème with vitamin A will have anti-bacterial properties that can help cut down on annoyingly persistent penis odor. Try to locate one that also includes vitamin C, which is not only a key component of collagen but also helps accommodate healthy penile blood flow.
