Masturbation in Men

Masturbation helps reduce stress, anxiety, headache, well for immune functioning, increases endorphin production (help avoid depression), help reduce prostate cancer, reduce blood pressure, and increase self-esteem.

Masturbation leads to ejaculation. Though this won't have any long term effects on your sperm quality or count. It affects your sperm count temporarily. Every time you ejaculate you will lose sperm from your body. So, it’s better to avoid regular masturbation while you are trying to conceive.

Is there a limit for number of times I masturbate?

One question many ask is whether they masturbate too much. There is no “normal” amount of masturbation. It’s not how many times you masturbate in a week (or day), it how it fits your life.

There are currently no records of studies that point to negative physical health effects from masturbating. Contrary to popular belief, masturbating is healthy and beneficial for the human body. It is normal for humans to want to touch themselves, and it should not be shamed or looked down upon. Masturbating does not hinder your physical or psychological self.

If you masturbate many times a day and you're missing work or giving up on sex with your partner because of it, consider seeing a sexologist.

Does watching too much porn cause sex problems?

The more porn you watch, more and more stimulation is needed for you to get sexual arousal. As your brain build up tolerance, when it comes to reality with a wife or partner, and you may not be able to perform.

Too much porn can desensitize a man to sex, and, eventually, he can be unable to get excited by ordinary sexual encounters.

Sex begins in your head. Every time we receive pleasure, whether it be from sex, drugs, food, or simply, a pat on the back for a job well done, the brain reward centers are activated. The neurotransmitter responsible for all things pleasurable – dopamine.

Over time, the receptors that were once very sensitive become less sensitive, and normal physical intimacy does not produce enough dopamine to stimulate the dopamine receptors. Technically, it’s called desensitization, a brain state by which one needs more and more stimuli to achieve the same results.

How excessive masturbation or porn can be treated?

The more porn you watch, the more – and harder and more graphic – porn you need in order to get an erection. You need more and more stimulation as you build up tolerance, and then comes your reality with a wife or partner, and you may not be able to perform.

  • Medications may help you to get an erection but may not provide you with satisfaction.
  • There is help. Like any good addiction, you simply have to stop.

Stop watching porn and resist the urge to masturbate as much as possible. Within six to 12 weeks your brain will rebound to a more typical dopamine sensitivity (though recovery time varies).
