Masturbation is not bad

Masturbation is perfectly healthy activity. We are not against masturbation, we are only against excessive masturbation. Masturbation is even good for you in many ways, for example

  • It relieves you of all the tension so you can focus better on your studies, work
  • Makes you calmer and far more less aggressive
  • You will probably never have headache if you are a frequent masturbator
  • Can be effective against certain diseases and medical conditions such as tension
  • Help reduce crimes
  • Is over all healthy and is natural need of the body and also give you great pleausure
  • Above all it is a sign of good health.

If you are masturbating once in a while or once every other day, there is nothing to worry about. If you doing it for reason you should be doing it for, that is when it become more harmful and addictive. If you masturbate 3 times a day in one day, that is totally ok. As long as your body needs it, the harmful effects are really none. But when the body does not need and you push it for reasons because you are lonely and you just have to masturbate, that is when it become harmful.

Excessive Masturbation is bad

We are against excessive masturbation. We think if you indulge in masturbation for not good enough reason for a long time and you regularly practice it, it might cause you in serious trouble. I understand this view is against medical science but I have to stick with it because I witnessed it first hand. The type of masturbation that can get you in serious trouble is, mostly all of these

  • You do not have friends
  • You always indulge with yourself
  • You do not feel the need to mingle with others. You are your own best friend
  • You masturbate when ever you get a chance
  • You create situations for yourself in order to masturbate
  • You try new techniques because the old ones got boring
  • You do it just because you can’t fall asleep or you are alone
  • You dont feel the need for a relationship just because you are happy with yourself. You are always satisfied
  • You do it once or twice a day every day
  • You can’t skip a single day without masturbation, or can hardly skip
  • There is no end of it that you can ever stop it
  • You never get bored with because you continue to change your fantasies
  • This type of masturbation can put you in serious trouble such as bending of penis, shrinkage of penis, premature ejaculation, lower back pain, reduced reaction, loss of sexual pleasure because your orgasm become week. Above all it affects your real relationship with opposite sex. You feel you are not enough for them. Things like premature ejaculation can put a severe dent in your relationship depending on how serious it is. I have discuss all of this on various pages.

    is it bad to close the mouth of the penis and didint allow to shoot the cum after masturbating..?

    • admin says:

      Acording to this link It can be harmful. It is called Retrograde Ejaculation.

      If you are ejaculating and you hold the semen in, yes it can cause some problems. It is called retrograde ejaculation and can cause infertility as you can damage the muscles and valves that are supposed to direct the semen out of the penis and not up into the bladder.

      I do not have any personnel saying on this.

      • henry agbatutu says:

        i masturbate 5 times a week and i started it the age of 21yrs up till now, i’m 27yrs. I’m my going to be affected.

        • Raj says:

          Reasons why we must avoid masturbation is as follows :

          1. It weakens the sexual organs and creates partial looseness in it.
          2. It weakens the nerves generally – a result of the exertion caused by this action.
          3. It affects the growth of the limbs especially the outer part of the urethra (duct through which urine isdischarged from the bladder and the testicles). Hence it does not reach the limit of it’s normal growth.
          4. It creates seminal (spermatic) inflammation in the testicles which causes quick ejaculation of sperm.
          5. It causes pain in the vertebra column, the spinal column from which semen is ejaculated. This pain creates
          crookedness and twisting in the back.
          6. It causes some limbs like the legs to shake and shiver.
          7. It creates weakness in the cerebral glands of the brain which, in turn, weakens the power of perception and
          reason. Similarly, it leads to the weakness of memory.
          8. It weakens the eye-sight and reduces its normal limit of vision.
          9. It causes a person to become old before time.
          10. It weakens the very delicate and fine nerves and veins of the sexual organs resulting in sexual impotency.
          11. It causes an excessive loss of sperm by way of nocturnal emission (wet dreams).
          12. It decreases the natural resistance of the body.
          13. It causes harm to the four principal organs in the body viz, the heart, brain, liver and stomach.
          14. It decreases the natural animal heat in the body, heat which strengthens the soul and body.
          15. It causes an excessive loss of blood. Remember it takes 80 drops of blood to produce one drop of sperm.
          16. It weakens the bladder.
          1. The psychologists say: “Here the awareness of a misdeed and the feeling of a sin occurs to those youth who practice this vile act in such a way that within themselves there is struggle between the desire to practice this vile act and the remorseful feeling of a sin.”
          2. Excessive practice of this vile act leads to cowardice, an increase in nervous agitation, no confidence in oneself, overwhelming disgrace, a decrease in the urge to study and desire towards isolation and introversion.
          3. Similarly, excessive practice of this evil act leads towards its addiction and attachment. Instead of practicing it to rid oneself of an irresistible desire or to unleash a violent eruption of desire within oneself, a person does it as a habit to attain and satisfy his carnal appetite and -desire. Ibn Qayyim (Rahmatullahi alaihi) has said:“Many sinners sin without deriving any pleasure and urge except that they experience pain in quitting it.”

    What if you just get erections alot and masturbate because i get erections and just masturbate but is it bad if you get errct every 1 hr

    • admin says:

      This is a legitimate question. If you are getting erection too often, then you can masturbate. Just bear in mind that excessive masturbation is really bad. Also know the fact that what is really bad is your ejaculate yourself just because of boredom. That way you teach your organ to ejaculate even if you are not in proper mood. The end result it, it might cause Premature Ejaculation. However I have no proof of this and by now it is just a theory out there.

  5. Kevin says:

    If You Have Been masturbating for a long period of time and you encounter yourself with alot of problems like side effects for masturbating too much , would that affect you for the rest of your life? Or you can stop and by stopping everything gets better and goes back to normal?
    And Does Masturbating Mess Your Face Up?
    Like makes it ugly or get more pimples?

    • admin says:

      It will affect you for the rest of your life. You can theoratically get back but practically it is almost not possible. But then everyone is different. You should be hopeful.

      Remember, sexual health has an impact on all part of your life, relationships, friendships, romance. If you fail here, its affect can be seen everywhere. But you will survive. I am an example. The fact is recovery is very difficult because you are mostly alone in this problem. However you can live a normal healthy life. It might not be exactly the same if you did not have this problem, but it can get pretty close. You should hope for the best.

  6. biplab biswas says:

    i stopped masturbate about 1 month, and decided to do it never in future. is this decision may effect on my health or can it will effected my reproductive system and organs.

    • admin says:

      Masturbation is ok. Excessive masturbation is not. So as long as you are not doing it excessive, nothing wrong with it.

      As far as your question, do not stress yourself too much to avoid masturbation. Masturbation has advantages too. The important thing is do not do it excessively. Most people who do it excessively do not have a relationship or friends, or usually solitary and they never get bored. Because they rely on masturbation!

  7. Imo John says:

    Masturbating moderately may seem okay initially,but it’s addictive-you will get carried away. Best to avoid it totally.

    • admin says:

      Totally agree. Even excessive is ok if you are in the mood for it and you do not span it over a long period of time. Excessive masturbation over a long period is what this site is about. Nice comments!

    • admin says:

      Avoid excessive masturbation. While 6/7 times a weak is not excessive, if you can reduce it, it will be better for you. However please ask someone else opinion as well.

  12. GInz says:

    thx tonne
    and keep up d good work

    • admin says:

      Night discharge is ok. In fact it is healthy. If you do not have night discharge, that is bad thing. Initially I had d different view about night discharge. I saw it if you have frequent night discharge, that means your ejaculation mechanism is not in good control. While that could be true. Night ejaculation in itself is a good thing and basically shows good sexual health. If you grow older, this will automatically decrease.

  13. Kumar says:

    will masturbation at a yearly age of 15 will affect my baby’s growth later?i am very scared of it…please help me

    • admin says:

      Not at all. At the age of 15 you should not be worried about masturbation that much. The only thing you need to worry about is excessiveness of everything is bad that includes masturbation also. It is a long time you will get married and have kids. You do not need to worry about it at all.

    • admin says:

      Night discharge is good thing it is happening to you. This kind of shows you have sexually in good health. I am not sure why you have problem with your partner. You can always see a doctor and you should!

    wat can be done to stop masturbating?

    • admin says:

      Dear Rambo, don’t be afraid of masturbation. If you can hold it for 3 days, that is good enough. This site against excessive masturbation. Once in 3 days is ok and nothing to worry about.

    • Silk says:

      If you just stop and tell yourself no. It’s as hard as you think. It’s probably weird but I’m a 13 yr old girl and I managed to stop with a week or so. If it helps try getting yourself into something like music, riding your bike, walking. though I do not reccomend video games and such. I got myself into music, writing fanfictions, and drawing. If you need to chose someone you can thoroughly trust and ask them if you can rely on them. It always helps to have someone looking out for you. We’re all cheering you on!

    • Matt says:

      Not sure but thats a good question. I would like to know too.


      • admin says:

        Excessive Masturbation does not causes any problems in pregnancy or child birth. A girl can equally get pregnant weather you over masturbate or not masturbate at all. But there is a side to it. When you do excessive masturbation for a long period of of time, the sperms counts in semen becomes low. This will decrease your chances of becoming a father but it will NOT eliminate it altogather. The second thing is if you are frequent masturbator, the ejaculation volume will likely decrease. This against might decrease the chances of pregnancy. So bottom line, it might reduce it a little bit but you still have a good chance of becoming father. One should not reply on the fact that if you are a frequent masturbator, you cannot father a baby. That is totally wrong. I think I have mentioned it in another answer as well.

  30. from peshawar pakistan says:

    Thanks a lot for the site. it is so help full. You are too good to share your experience. i had never know this much about masturbation before coming to your site via Google search.

    will you please advice some medicine so that i may not inclined to sex. i tried very hard to stop masturbating but failed many time and started again as the sex is always in my mind and when i stop masturbating after 1st week my penis get erection (not full a little) on very little touches like touch of my cloths, blanket, and my hand when taking showers and finally lead to full erection and to masturbation, and the cycle starts again.
    and of course looking at females in bazaars also arouse me so hard that stooping masturbation is very difficult.
    and i m seeing bad signs of masturbation on my penis and body, i m 27 now and started at 14, hope to marry in a year or two.

    would you please suggest any medicines so that i stop thinking about it and finally stop it, or any other advice.
    i would be very grateful.

    • admin says:

      Looking for medicine to curb your sexual desire is wrong. The proper way is to address the issue and find a real solution. You are 27 which is the right age to get married. Sexual frustration will build up really high if you do not have a partner. This is just a natural thing. The best way to cope with it is get into a relationship. I am not aware of any medicines which help curb sexual desire, but there definitely are, some of them curb your sexual desire as side affect. I would NOT recommend those. Medicine like these can cause suicidal thoughts. The fact that you are excited about something weather it be sex is a good thing. Just know your limit, respect others and get involved into healthy relationships.

      There are homeopathic medicines for curbing sexual desires. They do not usually have have any bad side affects, but do they really work is controversial.

      The other way and my preferred way to curbing your sexual desire is by not eating hot food. Some makes automatically makes you in mood, other don’t. Also if you are full stomach you are most likely to want sex. Eating less will decrease your sexual desire. Eating less food to control your desires work in a different way also, since you making some sacrifices to make it work, your brain helps you control it better.

      I hope it helps you to some extent. All the best

    Is it harmful/will it be harmful for me in the future?
    If it is harmful, please suggest me a remedy.

    • admin says:

      Having the sperms come out while avoiding ejaculation basically means leakage of semen. This is not as bad as ejaculation. Only has very slight bad effects. I do not recommend this either. Better to change direction of life rather than live with masturbation.

    Me and my friends 15 years have been masturbating for along time and at this age it is normal for it to be uncontrollable.. but we have experimented and notice that are knees hurt.. it is not accepted but its true.. i have seen several posts on google about this. it is because there is acid.. acetic acid in our joints and in our knees. it is what causes the pop noise. i think due to the realease of hormones suchs endorphine which are realeased at ejaculation the level of acetic acid increases so ur knees hurt .. and they naturrally pop when walking. this is not good for the knees. can anyone confirm whether theyve experienced this? Also there is sleepiness, depression and the sensation of fever..but actually no heat genereated.

    • admin says:

      It might be but I am thinking not. This could well be genetic in your case. The pain that I have experience is in calf, legs, lower back. You case might be different, I just did not experience it.

What to do? :'(

  50. Nk says:

    Each & every word of this website is true. Really excessive or over masturbation can cause adverse reaction on the body. Bcoz i know how it feels just after releasing semen. Not all myths associated with masturbation are false some are medically proven like hairfall, memory loss, lowered vision etc..

    The fact is that semen is rich in vitamin A, C, E, zinc selenium calcium potassium which r necessary to human body. When one indulges in excessive masturbation all the vitamins come out through his body which results in lowered vision, weakness, low sperm count etc..
