    Post Sexual Health: Masturbation - Is Masturbation Normal !?



    Your Guide to Masturbation

    Masturbation is the self-stimulation of the genitals to achieve sexual arousal and pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm (sexual climax). It is commonly done by touching, stroking or massaging the penis or clitoris until an orgasm is achieved. Some women also use stimulation of the vagina to masturbate or use "sex toys," such as a vibrator.


    Who Masturbates?

    Just about everybody. Masturbation is a very common behavior, even among people who have sexual relations with a partner. In one national study, 95% of males and 89% of females reported that they have masturbated. Masturbation is the first sexual act experienced by most males and females. In young children, masturbation is a normal part of the growing child's exploration of his or her body. Most people continue to masturbate in adulthood, and many do so throughout their lives.


    Why Do People Masturbate?

    In addition to feeling good, masturbation is a good way of relieving the sexual tension that can build up over time, especially for people without partners or whose partners are not willing or available for sex. Masturbation also is a safe sexual alternative for people who wish to avoid pregnancy and the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases. It also is necessary when a man must give a semen sample for infertility testing or for sperm donation. When sexual dysfunction is present in an adult, masturbation may be prescribed by a sex therapist to allow a person to experience an orgasm (often in women) or to delay its arrival (often in men).


    Is Masturbation Normal?

    While it once was regarded as a perversion and a sign of a mental problem, masturbation now is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity that is pleasant, fulfilling, acceptable and safe. It is a good way to experience sexual pleasure and can be done throughout life.
    Masturbation is only considered a problem when it inhibits sexual activity with a partner, is done in public, or causes significant distress to the person. It may cause distress if it is done compulsively and/or interferes with daily life and activities.


    Is Masturbation Harmful?

    In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. Some cultures and religions oppose the use of masturbation or even label it as sinful. This can lead to guilt or shame about the behavior.
    Some experts suggest that masturbation can actually improve sexual health and relationships. By exploring your own body through masturbation, you can determine what is erotically pleasing to you and can share this with your partner. Some partners use mutual masturbation to discover techniques for a more satisfying sexual relationship and to add to their mutual intimacy.

    What is Over Masturbation?



    First things first. The vast majority of masturbation is completely healthy and positive. There is no data for this, but anything approximating "over masturbation" is very rare. There is no number or quantity of masturbation that is healthy or unhealthy. Masturbation isn’t like candy or eggs, there isn’t a "recommended daily allowance", it means different things to different people, and we all use masturbation differently, in positive and negative ways. So this question needs to be answered on an individual basis, keeping in mind that very few of us actually masturbate in ways that are harmful to ourselves.

    If I am over masturbating, will I have to stop masturbating altogether?

    No credible health care professional who is working in your best interest would ever tell you to stop masturbating forever. A healthy sexual life includes masturbation across the lifespan, and stopping for a week or two doesn’t mean you have to stop forever. If you feel like your masturbation is a problem you may want to take a break from masturbating for a while and take some time to think about what is going on for you. But you should never feel like taking a break means dropping masturbation from your sexual repertoire. If someone tells you that masturbating is wrong or you need to stop it, they are probably doing so in their own interests, not yours.

    Feeling guilty about masturbation is not necessarily a sign of over masturbating.


    Many of us are raised with negative messages about our bodies, sex, and specifically masturbation. We respond by feeling guilty when we masturbate. But masturbation is healthy and guilt is not a required part of it. As you go through the questions below it’s important to know that feeling guilty about masturbation doesn’t mean you’re doing it too much. Guilt is a normal response to being told bad things about masturbation. The solution in this case is not to stop masturbating (although you might chose to take a break while working things out), the solution is to deal with your feelings of guilt, to recognize them as unnecessary, and to work towards feeling good about your ability to give yourself pleasure and knowing that masturbation is a part of sexual health.

    Is your masturbation causing you distress?


    Like any behavior, we can use masturbation for avoidance, as a form of risk taking, or as a way of pushing our own boundaries outside of our comfort zone. If you find yourself consistently feeling bad about your masturbation, either after you’ve masturbated, or when you think about it, then you may want to take a break and figure out why. By distress I don’t mean feeling guilty, as this can be a very normal response for those of us raised with negative messages about masturbation, and surrounded by so many myths about masturbation . But if the amount your masturbating is causing you distress of any other kind, it’s worth figuring out what the problem might be.

    Is your masturbation causing (unwanted) physical pain or damage?


    If you are masturbating to the point of rubbing your skin raw, or causing any other physical pain or damage that you don’t want, you maybe over masturbating, or masturbating the wrong way. There may be a simple or complicated solution to this (simple being something like using a personal lubricant, complicated being something that involves therapy and more introspection). But if masturbation is resulting in physical pain or discomfort it may be a good time to take a break and figure out what’s going wrong.

    Is your masturbation getting in the way of your life in unwanted ways?


    You may be over masturbating if you aren’t finding time to work, go to school, and see family and friends because of your masturbation frequency. Here’s an example where masturbating once a day may be perfectly healthy and fine for one person, as they do it when it works best and doesn’t interfere with other parts of their life that are important. But if you’re masturbating once a day exactly at the time you need to be at an important obligation, there might be something more going on. If the rest of your life is being consistently disrupted by your masturbation, it may be a situation where you are over masturbating.

    Do you find yourself literally unable to stop masturbating?


    While there is nothing inherently harmful or dangerous about masturbation, it can become a compulsion or a focus of an obsession. If you feel compelled to masturbate and truly feel unable to stop masturbating, it is likely that you are over masturbating and need to find some support to explore what’s going on that is compelling you to masturbate so frequently. In situations like this it may not make sense to stop masturbating cold turkey, but might be better to find some supports (family, friends, professionals) before you start to change your masturbation behaviors.
    Resources for people who think they may be engaging in chronic masturbation.

    Finding a resource depends on where you live, what sort of health care you have, and how involved you want to get in exploring your feelings. If you have access to free sexual counseling services (through an organization like Planned Parenthood or your school) that may be enough. If you have a friend you can trust you may want to talk with them.

    Be aware that there are many religious groups and organizations that consider all masturbation to be unhealthy and can take advantage of people who are looking for genuine answers by imposing their own morality at a time of vulnerability.

    It has been stated in medical journals that excessive masturbation can trouble men in some of the following ways in the long run -
    1. It induces tiredness and fatigue in the ones' who masturbate daily.
    2. It weakens the urinary bladder muscles and the sphincter. So as the age advances the person suffers from problem in micturation.
    3. Excess masturbation can cause problem of quick ejaculation. So u r done while u r partner stil wants more.


    So i guess the forum should be throwing light upon these issues too.

    Here are the answers to your "Myths"

    1. It induces tiredness and fatigue in the ones' who masturbate daily.
    Even for people who masturbate once a week, it causes tiredness and fatigue. This happens because a lot of sexual tension is released with masturbation.

    As a fact, whenever we enjoy a lot, we feel sleepy. Try it out with some good parfume.!! You'll always sleep better in a room tht has some fragrance you like.

    2. It weakens the urinary bladder muscles and the sphincter. So as the age advances the person suffers from problem in micturation.
    Totally untrue.. !!
    Masturbating in the "Correct" manner never causes this problem. Yeah, being to rough and crossing the limit is never adviced.. !!

    EXCESS OF EVERYTHING IS BAD AND MASTURBATION IS NO EXCEPTION.

    3. Excess masturbation can cause problem of quick ejaculation. So u r done while u r partner stil wants more.
    Twist in the tale buddy..!! Actually, people who masturbate "more" tend to last longer than the men who masturbate less..!!

    There is a "Fact" to it..!! Since you masturbate more, it increases your durability..!! Check it out yourself, you last longer than you did when you were 15 years old, right..? Take example of anything, the more you practice, the better you get.

    Another fact is, that when we masturbate too much our Genitals develop a sensitivity to our hands. And when we get into the actual act, it takes time to ejacuate bcoz our genitals keep waiting for the touch of our hand. Hence, we last longer. !!


    Clear your myths buddy.. But as I said before, EXCESS is always bad. !!

    You lose precious time and you would be much more sleepy everytime you masturbate..!! Just keep it balanced.

    G'day

    Default Over Masturbation & Ayurveda

    Over masturbation

    When one masturbates frequently or ejaculates, it stimulates something called as acetylcholine and parasympathetic nervous functions. This excessive stimulation may result in over productions of sexual hormones and neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, serotonin and dopamine.

    Ample and unusual (large) amount of these sexual hormones and neurotransmitters may cause the brain and adrenal glands to make excessive dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion and make the brain and body functions to be extremely sympathetic. Meaning to say, there is a big change in body chemistry when one excessively and frequently masturbates.

    Masturbation is considered as a healthy sexual behavior. Nevertheless, like other behaviors, when it is over practiced or one becomes addicted, it can lead to both psychological and physiological imbalances.

    The adverse effects of such changes to the body include:

    * One may feel fatigue or tired all the time
    * A man has lower back pain
    * He might face thinning hair or hair loss
    * He might be feeling soft or weak ere(tion
    * He may suffer from the condition called premature ejaculation
    * He may have his eye flickering or fuzzy vision
    * He might be having groin or testicular pain
    * He might be feeling pain or cramp in the pelvic cavity or/and tailbone.

    Masturbation plays a great role in a normal day-to-day sex life. Some of the people discover it when they were children because it starts to feel so good between their legs. Others are shown by their friends. Boys then continue to masturbate because it feels so good. It gets boys ready for mature sexual relationships when they reach their adulthood, and it helps boys taking care of those raging hormonal urges and surges when they are teenagers.

    Masturbation can surely enhance mature sexual relationships where two partners use it as a prelude either to other sexual activity or as the main fare. In addition, it keeps men going when relationships weakens, such as when a partner is ill or away. It is a great equalizer in a relationship where one partner needs more sexual activity than the other does.

    To define ‘too much masturbation’ is difficult because that depends. However, it is suggested that men should keep their ejaculation frequency down to twice or thrice a week. However, sexual activity can be experienced more than that only if men learn how to reach orgasm without ejaculating. Doing so can actually store bio-energy into his system and make the penis firmer, *****ions last longer, and the volume of the ejaculation will be more.

    Masturbation is a part of life and the sexual practices in modern lifestyles. In fact, most of the sexual experts recommend that is will not only improve sexual experiences but it will also promote good general health. However, like most of things in life, anything too much is too bad. This is true here too. Excessive masturbation can results in some unwanted symptoms such as stress, fatigue, and memory loss. In worse cases, sufferers fall into the pitfalls of impotence and hair loss.

    One recently published clinical report suggests, 87% of women and 95% of men had practiced masturbation—but when done to extreme, it caused drastic changes in brain and body chemistry. Too much masturbation can over-stimulate acetylcholine and parasympathetic nervous functions and therefore, disrupt the liver’s release of vital enzymes that synthesize neurotransmitters acetylcholine, dopamine, and serotonin. In addition, the liver’s ability to release enzymes that aid in hormone production can be affected result of which, the brain and adrenal glands will produce too much dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and other hormones and neural transmitters.

    Symptoms of over masturbation, also called sexual exhaustion, are distressing liver and nervous system functions; include youthful impotence/*****ile dysfunction (including a soft or weak *****ion) and seminal leakage. Since more than 30% of men have experienced impotence at one or other times in their lives, impotence in youth is rarer and can often be attributed to the previously described factors.

    Over-masturbation can also cause problems such as seminal leakage that can cause sperm to ooze or leak out of the penis with no relation to *****ion of the organ. Both semen leakage and youthful impotence can embarrass and make person uncomfortable. These are the prime signs of sexual exhaustion.

    Semen leakage is a sign that the parasympathetic nerve (which keeps the ejaculation valve shut and holds the *****ion) is being weakened because of over-masturbation. With this weakened nerve, it is difficult to remain *****ed.
    How to get rid from this addiction

    The very first step to get better is to reduce the frequency of masturbation and ejaculation. One should overcome this habit. In diet, one should eat more soybean products and should eliminate excessive caffeine from the diet.

    Men should also focus on nutty foods such as sunflower seeds, peanuts and eat more seafood, seaweed, vegetables, and try to give up or to restrict the red meat intake. Instead of soda, try drinking orange juice or cranberry juice. One should also drink plenty of water.

    In Ayurveda, the masturbation is called as ‘hastamaithuna’. Ayurveda deals seriously with this condition and denies that it is helpful to lead healthy sexual life. If a person does over masturbation, he is inviting the impotency and his body will lose the vitality. He will become weak and will not have strength and masculinity.

    In Ayurveda, there are seven Dhatus (vital tissues of the body) from serum to the semen. These vital tissues have particular quantity in our body. They get nourishment from the food eaten and then they perform various body functions. The entire body depends upon these seven tissues (vital tissues – Dhatus). Over masturbation will start expending these good quantities of these Dhatus and the semen that has particular quantity in the body will be decreased.

    The semen will be decreased and being the most important and extract of all the other bodily tissues, it will then start shrinking the body. The body will become lean and the physical vitality or strength will eventually decrease with signs of exhaustion, lethargy, numbness all over the body and lack of interest in any routines of the life.
