Braxton's quickie for the day...
For faithful quickie readers, today's topic will be on familiar turf.
We need a further discussion on the phenomenon of acclimation. Why? Because it trips up so many beginners, at least if my emails are any indication.
Someone new to stimming typically greets the experience with trepidation...they want the pleasure they've read about, but they are a little worried about current coursing through their body. We humans are marvelous adapters: our erstwhile fears soon evaporate, replaced with a mild addiction to this new, pleasurable feeling.
Then acclimation enters from stage left. The new stimmer discovers that an impressive leap in power box intensity is no big deal, no doubt thinking that they will only reach their orgasm sooner. It's just not that simple! Do you feed a small child all of the candy they could possibly eat? No. In many respects, this is the same problem. When we stim, we are "feeding" an entity that constantly needs more and more intensity, and it would like it in the largest possible servings.
Resolve that you will be the parent to your inner child. When it needs more intensity, feed it just enough to satisfy it for somewhere between five and seven minutes. At the end of that period, your stim will have lost all edge and must be revived with another small feeding. As you climb the ladder of acclimation, the wait period will steadily decrease. At the point of orgasm, the wait period will probably have diminished to about every two minutes.
The moral of this? Conserve your power at the beginning so that you will have a sufficient stimulation reserve at the end, when you will need it most. The worst feeling there is in the stimming world is to feel the approaching orgasm with no reserve power left to assure getting "over the top". For the sports nuts out there, a good analogy is the crime of using your time-outs too early.
Observe the timestamps in the attached article for a good example of power box management.
