Desensitized Male Organ? It Might be the ‘Death
Self-pleasuring is a natural, healthy and fun part of being a man. Physical
release can not only contribute to physical health, but can also help a man
keep his emotional and mental health on an even keel. In fact, regular self-

But for some men, this very natural act can lead to a desensitized male
organ. Why would this be? If self-pleasuring is so good for a man, how
could it possibly lead to losing the wonderful sensations he experiences in
his manhood during the act? The answer is usually ‘death grip’ syndrome.

he does engage in intimate play with a partner, he has difficulty reaching a
peak. This might be due to the desensitized male organ, or it might be

for men that there are whole websites devoted to how to solve the problem.
How to stop using the ‘death grip’
For most men, the only true solution to the ‘death grip’ self-pleasuring
technique is rewiring what the body needs. It begins with ceasing all solo
play for at least one week. For some men this might sound like torture, but
