How often do you handle your corn snake?

Hi everyone! First time corn snake owner, I adopted a 5 year old 5 foot long male and love him to bits!

I might love him a little too much, though. I got him a week ago and have consistently taken him out of his tank in hopes that he'll get used to my scent and associate it with being friendly. However, yesterday he wrapped his tail around his hide, so I left him alone, and today he slithered away into his hide completely. I don't bother him when he does this and he isn't acting aggressive at all, but it makes me think I'm overhandling him.

So I googled for a place that might give me advice and wound up here. I'd like to know how often everyone handles their corns so that I can both enjoy my snake and lower the chance of stressing him out. Thanks!
