No wor­ries. Pro­cras­tur­ba­tion isn’t just an amaz­ing Ur­ban Dic­tionary term, it’s also a real thing! We all know that or­gasms are great stress re­liev­ers (all those en­dor­phins!), so it makes to­tal sense that a solo O is also a great way to deal with un­pleas­ant things like, say, a loom­ing work dead­line. And for the most part, it’s a harm­less pro­cras­ti­na­tion tool, says clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist and sex­ual be­hav­ior sci­en­tist James Can­tor, PHD. “If it weren’t mas­tur­ba­tion, it would be some­thing else, like video games.” If your BF’S new habit es­ca­lates and starts to in­ter­fere with his job or your re­la­tion­ship, then he should look into talk­ing to a pro­fes­sional. Oth­er­wise, Can­tor says, “A lit­tle bit of pro­cras­tur­ba­tion? That’s just hu­man.”
