Just go cold turkey - let your dick rest COMPLETELY without any simulation. It’s the same when I work out - when I tweak a muscle, I feel that I need to keep working it but in the end I keep re-injuring it. I gave myself 4 weeks off for a bad shoulder tweak and it felt good as new after those four weeks.
I’m not saying you have to do 4 weeks, but even two weeks should help you out.
Man believe me I’ve been trying. The longest I’ve been able to go has been 10 days. Then I’m forced to masturbate.I’ll keep trying though. I really hope you’re right and it’s just like any other muscle. Like if you tore your bicep you’d have to stop doing curls at the gym then after a couple of months it will be all healed up. But if you continued to do curls before it’s healed it won’t repair itself. But the thing is I still have to use my dick to pee and even though I don’t wake up with them, I still get erections during the night. So I can’t really give my penis a complete break.
