Anxiety or stress is one of the great disorders of our time. To catalog them of illness is not something that should be done lightly. We all pass these situations on the occasion of multiple factors. They are nothing more than the reflection of fear, an ancestral sensation of every human being, and of most species. Fear corresponds to prudence, and is key to survival.
However, situations of anxiety or stress become chronic in humans, unlike what happens in the animal kingdom. The latter have a life ordered by instincts that is based on feeding, procreating and escaping from danger. Sex, mating, is part of a pleasant routine that acts as an escape valve for situations of fear and danger.
Humans, however, are sometimes trapped in work routines, stress, anguish, which act as a permanent cage from which we can not escape. If we do not have the sex escape valve, these situations become chronic.
Many times we are faced with an authentic whisk that bites its tail. Said in authentic terms … we do not fuck because we are stressed, and this prevents us from having sex. The situation, it should be another … we are going to fuck because that is how we evade ourselves, we forget about the problems and tomorrow will be another day. It is not such a difficult and complicated plan. It is even free. To look for pleasant and relaxing sensations that help us control anxiety, we do not need a couple. Masturbate is healthy. Most mammals do it. It helps to lubricate our reproductive organs, and produces a release of dopamine and oxytocin that relaxes us. Psychiatrists prescribe a multitude of medications to produce the same effect, relax, and isolate us from our burdens.
Beating anguish and depression without medication is possible. We just have to recover our most basic inquisitions.
