RE: Is too much masturbation harmful?

Hi MC29mc,

I think that you will find that once a day is probably the norm, in a young male and therefore thanks to evolution, probably not harmful.

With regards to the cancer question, it is probably much healthier to ejaculate daily than abstinence would be, as large numbers of sperm is produced to be ejaculated. You will find naturally with age (unfortunately) that the production will slow down and therefore the desire will also decrease in relation.

The way in which ejaculating manually daily could be a problem is if it prevents you from finding a partner to have normal relations with.

The only other thing to watch out for is as the penis grows with constant exercise, that it does not become distorted in one direction or the other. As can be seen in a male porn star, you can see if he is right or left handed if you get me meaning.

Regards,
JC

once every 2 days is best.

don't forget to take a multi-vitamin supplement if you are at it all the time.

If you don't own an ergonomic keybaord, then buy one! This will help prevent repetitive strain disorder in your wrist, more commonly known as w*nkers cramp.

Better to get your girlfriend to do it for you, she can also check your balls for testiculer cancer at the same time! More fun that way!!

I don't think it's harmful but as in everything, doing things in moderation is better.

Its not directly harmful, but it can impact your ability to engage in other activities....

This is beyond mere calorific counts - so, as an example, footballers are warned off sex prior to a big game, boxers are warned off as they are preparing for a match...same goes for other sports as well as more advanced spiritual endeavours. Theres no doubt that one gets an 'edge' from retaining that particular type of energy - that edge can then be used for other things - its not a rational 1+1=2 equation, theres things at play that are not well understood...however, this (retaining) in extreme can lead to too much tension, angst and frustration... 😮 😉

Healthy diet will help compensate for any excesses! Lets not forget that the very special mix produced on ejaculation is like 'the best youve got' for reproductive/creative endeavour - if youre gonna spend it randomly be prepared to top up your nutrient levels and possibly feel shortchanged for a few days (unless your a peaking 18-24 yr old) in other areas (sports or and some creative/spiritual practices)...

As someone else said, its very much about moderation, but I would second the statements that it also depends on age.... in a young man, a daily release, or even more than once daily depending on where he is in his testosterone cycle (male equivalent of a menstrual cycle) is not unusual, or unhealthy IMHO. In older men, it will depend on where they are in there testoterone cycle - if its peaking, he may not notice any other effect, if hes not, he may feel lower energy levels for a few days or even be disinterested in it at all (and other things for that matter).

One things for sure - its something that has taken a bad rap over the years (some saying that circumcision was introduced as a way to stop boys from 'doing it' in the days before easy access to lotions/lubricants etc :rolleyes:), when really, if boys didnt engage in it, there'd be WAY more fights, rapes, and other nasty expressions of over-pumped frustrated maleness to the extent our society would be nothing like what it is now! Masturbation has quite possibly saved humanity from an earlier self-destruction from howling young rampant lions....:p

so...ummm...have fun? 😀

Darren

For the spiritually/personal developmentally inclined... : Learning to MANAGE that energy, and that impulse/urge/desire, is something that becomes part of a more developed... spiritual path, as one tries to manage the energy and direct it from the second centre (the first creative centre) to the higher equivalent (the second creative centre, the throat - hence the growth of similar hair in both regions in males). This is filled with challenges and shouldnt really be consciously worried about until its something where youve REALLY begun to notice the energetic effects and want to work with it. It is, however, something filled with rewards of new heights, for self and partner for those who do go down that route (this is the basis behind the essence of sexual tantric practice which has received so much misinformation its almost not even worth mentioning).

Too much or excess of everything is bad. I dont think you should do that excessively as sperm takes a lot from out body to form and also one need to have healthy diet to make it back to our body.

Masturbation is not harmful and is actually very healthy for teenagers and older ones as well. Masturbating once a day is not so much for a teenagers considering that their sexual hormones are raging.

The reason you lost weight doesn’t lie in masturbation although some weakness could occur slightly after masturbation or if you do it more than once a day.

Regular ejaculations will make you weaker (esp the kidneys), however, if you learn how to lift your sexual energy up the spine, that's when you se Heaven 🙂 It's the practice of many that's got to know Tantra or Taoistic philosophy.

Why is ejaculation so important to us men? Because in that fraction of a second we experience something greater then us. Too bad it's just a second (that's why we do it often). With Tantra it's possible to prolong that experience.

Enjoy!

I wouldn't be too concerned. Most teen guys masturbate fairly regularly. It is something you will grow out of when the time is right... Not completely though. I think most guys still enjoy the odd one...

In fact there was a study published a couple of years ago that claimed it significantly reduced the chances of prostate cancer.

There is also the stress relief of it too which I would imagine is good for your blood pressure too, at least that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.

Wouldn't it be better, more enjoyable to share the pleasure with someone of the opposite sex?

Oh James, It probably is but; you have to remember that not everyone has a special someone to share these moments with!!! :rolleyes:

Yes, true and i would put some of that energy expended in self masturbation to finding someone. This is not a post-war era, there is no shortage of men for women or vice versa, so it shouldn't be that difficult, should it?

Also, the label "someone special" is often applied to someone that one has shared some pleasure with - that is, there was a mutual desire and mutual satisfaction!

In the old days monks and priests used to use Vitex agnus castus to reduce their libido. The good news is that frequent ejaculation may actually protect against prostate cancer. Try this [url]new scientist[/url] article.

I'm with Woodcat much better as part of a duo.

I think that its fairly well accepted that masturbation for females is not harmful as there is no loss of sperm, so maybe "harm" is not relevant for females - you lucky girls!!!!

Oh very cynical James. 'someone special' does not have to mean some you have already spent some pleasure with. In my opinion, it has to be 'someone special' before i would consider letting them get that intimate. It doesn't always have to be a certain length of time but it does have to be someone that one is attracted to. Not everyone just wants a s**g. I would rather be alone than just be with 'someone' or 'anyone'. You can get items with batteries for those pleasures. And no! I don't think it is that easy just to find someone, unless you're not fussy who you have.

Me!!! im particular!! and so are many others!!!

that reminds me of story i read some time ago that years ago women were not satisfied and would be "hysterical " and husbands would take them to drs and drs would do a procedure for the ladies ( masturbate them):eeeK: as a treatment !!! nowadays it would,be unproffesional.

I too am fussy and refuse to go with men for one thing.old fashioned and thats me, but everyone is different each to their own.

but isnt that the point - they're all queueing up, like little soldiers ready to do battle, pushing and shoving saying "me first, let me out first!!"? how can loss of sperm be harmful when you make bucket loads of the stuff? isnt it more harmful to keep it all wrapped up for a special day? (as in the prostate cancer theory). supply and demand eh!

aaannnnddddd....

what if you're gay? i doubt it would be more enjoyable then :p.

Yes, it definately needs to be someone that you feel attracted to...the attraction though is just the start and one can end up ruining things if one is too fussy with lots of rules and regulations.

Not everyone just wants a s**g.

I don't know about everyone but i often do - and i wouldn't call it "just a s**g!!!! It's the high point of life, the why and wherefore i'm alive....

You can get items with batteries for those pleasures.

The items are marketed well, but i imagine not all that satisfying - for that you need a connection with a real person.

And no! I don't think it is that easy just to find someone, unless you're not fussy who you have.

Me!!! im particular!! and so are many others!!!

If by "particular" you mean someone to share the rest of your life and physical pleasures with, to the exclusion of all others, etc, etc, then I imagine it wouldn't be all that easy, and i know some women who are still virgins at 45!

Reminds me of what Woody Allen says in that film: "Its not the quantity but the quality of sex that is important. But if you havent had sex for a couple of months, i'd look into it."

sometimes I am horny and mrs Daveon is not so I don't have much choice in the matter, but yes it is far more enjoyable someone else doing it for you :), just because something is not the most enjoyable thing to do does not mean it is not something to be enjoyed, if you get my meaning.

If everyone is honest, we all do it from time to time, male and female it's human nature.;)

But can it be harmful I doubt it very much.
It could give you problems with your wrist in later life, maybe thats why my wrist always hurts LOL, only joking:o
