Pornographic material is a source of inspiration and stimulation, and you can watch your favorite genre of pornographic material to increase the visual stimulation and also enrich the masturbation experience. But you'd better not indulge in pornographic material, you need a healthy attitude towards them.
One benefit of using fantasy and pornographic material is that they help men explore their desires and fantasies while masturbating. Fantasy and pornographic material allow users to promote their own deeper understanding of sexuality. But fantasy and pornographic material are not a reflection of reality and should not be used to objectify or demean others. Users are expected to maintain a healthy and respectful attitude when using fantasy and pornographic material.
