Glans too dry to masturbate effectively.
« on: 2022-03-17 20:25:47 »
Has anyone dried their head out too the point it was just hard to masturbate with the skin? While I don't "pull back" often, I have a short foreskin which has led to the head drying out naturally over time. Now when I masturbate with the skin it's kind of like rubbing two pieces of leather together, it's not enjoyable. I find myself using sex toys and lube and just holding the skin back the entire time. Asking here because I know a lot of people have a goal of drying out the glans - how do you masturbate after you've achieved your dry/desensitized state?

I've jerked off like a cut guy for some time. Although my foreskin isn't that short, it is very loose, so like you I never had a hugely sensitive head to start with.

I think the answer is: use lube. It feels better anyway, right?

It's more intense yes, but I like the simplicity of just "doing it." Options are always nice, so I can do whichever method I feel like at the moment.

I jerk the skin on the shaft behind the head. So there's no need for lube and no skin-on-head contact. Works for me pretty well!

I love that I have different options to choose from. I usually choose to rub the bare head in which case I use lube. Other times feels good just to use the skin. That case lube makes it more sensual as well but I don't bother with it in most of the time.

I’d go with that. Best of both worlds. Lube on the head means you can edge quite comfortably for some time. Just don’t be in a hurry to finish, that’s the difficult bit!

For me leaving the head exposed and working the skin on the shaft works best.

I guess it is quite close to soundsgreat87's method.

Grabbing the skin like a ring and moving it up and down just below the head. It is mostly my thumb working the inner foreskin an bunching against the rim of the head on the upper side and the base of my index finger rubbing the frenulum on the lower side that makes the sensation.

Hope I described it somehow understandable.

Since pulling back I have been masturbating behind the head much more. I think this has helped with stretching my frenulum as I can now pull back much further. Consequently I can form a ring with my hand that rubs the underside of my glans around my frenulum. This works great when dry, but a bit of lube also works wonderfully!

For several years now, I no longer masturbate by gilding the skin over the head, because like you say, it just doesn’t feel as nice as it used to.  I’ve pretty exclusively adopted masturbation styles used by cut guys, and honestly, I think they feel even better.  It’s actually kind of nice that also use a wider repertoire of styles and techniques too!

Like several other people mentioned here, my primary technique is to warp my thumb and forefinger in a ring around the sulcus, just behind the glans, and tug back and forth, bumping against the back of the glans on the upstroke. Since it’s just tugging and not rubbing, it works great without lube, and it stimulates all of the most sensitive parts.

Lubing up and stroking that whole shaft and head is amazing, and definitely my favorite, but it can be a bit messy, so I don’t do it as often. Spit works as lube in a pinch and is easy to clean up.

I am an intermittent retracter, so I don't always wear the skin pulled back. As a result, my glans is probably not as dry as the permanent retracters. But honestly, it is usually pretty dry. I still sometimes enjoy wanking with the skin over the head. To me, the degree of dryness that I have is pleasant. With less moisture than a usually covered glans, the skin glides more easily for me. And precum generally provides plenty of lube, once I get started. When I wear the skin retracted, I jerk off with the skin pulled back. I generally do this with the thumb and forefinger forming a ring around the sulcus, and the other fingers brushing the underside. Usually I loosen my grip on the up stroke, and tighten on the down stroke. So I don't pull the skin forward at all on the way up, and I stimulate both the glans, and inner foreskin on the way down.

If you don't find it enjoyable just masturbate like a cut guy. That's what I do, and it works perfectly fine.  :)
