Self-Pleasuring and the Other Senses

by John Dugan Owner

Self-pleasuring, for most men, becomes a regular part of their sensual lives early on. Even before they are able to release seed, they are often rubbing and stroking their member and enjoying the sensations this activity brings. And once seed release is added into the mix, it really becomes a pleasure a guy is anxious to return to again and again. As a component of sensual health, it is also part of male organ health, and practice in this area often helps prepare a man for his first partner-based sensual encounters. 

However, as frequently as a man may self-stimulate, it’s rare that all his senses are engaged. Frequently, he concentrates only on touch or on touch combined with sight. Yet incorporating all the senses into self-pleasuring can be very rewarding for a man. 

Visual animals 

Clearly, there’s a reason why touch is the go-to sense where self-pleasuring is involved. Physical stimulation of the manhood (and other sensual zones) is almost always part of self-pleasuring; there are very few men who can spontaneously release seed strictly from exposure to senses other than touch. 

And men, we are constantly told, are very much a visual animals (supposedly more so than women), so with the easy availability of adult films online, it’s no wonder that many men exercise their visual senses quite keenly during their self-pleasuring sessions. The visual sensations available are far ranging and can fulfill almost any taste. 

Other senses 

But that’s no reason to let the other senses – sound, smell and taste – go wanting when self-gratifying. Incorporating these senses into self-play can open up new reactions, which may be especially welcome if self-pleasuring routine has become a little – well, routine. 

But how to incorporate the other senses? 


This may be the easiest. For those watching videos on mute, raise the volume and let the auditory experience be added in. But there are other ways of adding sound. For example, many online resources exist which feature audio files for self-fondling. These may be music with a steady beat which features people moaning or gasping, for example. Or it may be recordings of people talking while they self-stimulate or reading sensual stories. 

But it may be more worthwhile to go beyond being a passive listener. Instead, a guy can incorporate his own moaning, heavy breathing, comments, mindless blathering, etc. into his self-pleasuring. Many men grow used to being silent while self-fondling so that no one else will know; but if he is alone and doesn’t have to worry, it can be liberating to let it all out vocally while stroking the member. 


Men forget how strong scents can be, so utilizing aromas during self-pleasuring can make it a new experience. Some men like to use their own scent and take a few whiffs from under their arms. Others may want to try something else, such as sniffing a lime or lemon or lighting incense or ginger-scented candles. If there is a particular scent a man finds sensual, he should definitely bring it on. 


As with scents, there are some flavors that have an exciting effect on some men. Knowing what those triggers are can help a guy add whipped cream, fresh oranges or wine to his self-sensual diet. Does his female friend have a favorite food? Adding a little of that taste may make an interesting difference.

Self-pleasuring is an excellent way to explore all the senses – and may lead one to overdoing things a bit. That’s why regularly applying a top drawer male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is so important. Use of a good crème helps protect against rawness from excessive handling – especially if the crème possesses L-carnitine, a neuroprotective amino acid that helps prevent loss of sensation. The crème also needs to include a combination of Shea butter (a high-end emollient) and vitamin E (an excellent hydrator), so that it can moisturize and soothe away raw male organ skin.
