Yes, I do understand that...And while I can feel a bit childish stating; 'but why allow myself to be in..blueball pain, when releasing it is so...easy?'
Eric, this is your immaturity showing again. Do you realize how many times a typical 30 year old man has SF (any kind)? Once or twice a week (guys, I don't need to hear YOUR statistics - I'm making a point here). You are experiencing pain ONLY because you have conditioned your body to it. Just like a 2-pack-a-day smoker who feels withdrawal if he cuts back to one pack a day. He has to re-condition his body to not need so much nicottine (sp?).

You have to recondition your body to a normal state, and the pain will go away.
