    Masturbation can be defined as self-stimulation to cause sexual sensations. The use of the word masturbation usually suggests that the person is manipulating his or her genitals to the point of intense pleasure or orgasm. (Orgasm refers to a period of intense excitement in which genital muscles enter in to a series of highly pleasurable contractions or movements.)
    While masturbation can involve another person, most of us think of it as a very private act. According to some health care providers masturbation allows a healthy way to express and explore your sexuality and to release sexual tension without all the associated risks of sexual intercourse. Health professionals generally agree that this private touching is a natural, normal mode of self-exploration and sexual expression. Unfortunately, after the excitement of the moment has passed, many people find themselves filled with guilty and or shame.

    BENEFITS OF MATURBATION



    At its most basic level, masturbation serves to reduce stress and sexual tension. Humans don't go into heat at certain points of the year like other mammals, so starting with puberty we have a lot of bottled-up sexual energy year-round. People can't exactly just leap on someone they're attracted to and take out their pent-up sexual frustration on them. Well, they can, but it's called rape and it's a despicable thing indeed. What's the alternative when there's not a consenting partner to help you to release your sexual tension? Well, of course masturbation is the answer. Masturbating and achieving orgasm can cause all that sexual tension to be released in a controlled way and provide you with blocks of time in which you can be more focused, productive, and relaxed. Relaxation is a benefit that many stressed-out people in America could sorely use.


    One of the most fundamental health benefits of masturbation is that it feels good. The reason behind this is because sexual stimulation and orgasm release endorphins in the body. Endorphins are natural chemicals produced by the body that give a feeling of well-being and elation after periods of exertion. Two of the best ways to release endorphins are exercise and sexual activity. In the absence of actual sex, masturbation serves the same purpose of releasing endorphins and improving mood. In women, masturbation can help to relieve cramps associated with menstruation. With both sexes, regular masturbation can help combat insomnia by lowering blood pressure and increasing relaxation through the release of endorphins.

    Default Masturbation myths

    I'm re posting this from another thread but I thought that this info would go well in here....

    MYTH:
    Masturbation causes hair to grow on your palms.
    FACT:
    How many people with hair on their palms have you seen?


    MYTH:
    Masturbation causes hair loss, chronic fatigue, and other problems.
    FACT:
    Internet scam artists have tried to invent a concept called "overmasturbation," insisting that you have to buy their expensive herbal pills in order to counteract the effect of masturbating more than a couple of times per week. But the pills have absolutely no effect — and masturbating once or twice a day will not make your hair fall out, or cause anything else they claim.



    MYTH:
    Masturbation is bad for your eyesight.
    FACT:
    Masturbation does not affect eyesight. This myth probably originated because boys often start having to wear glasses at about the same age they start masturbating.

    MYTH:
    Masturbation causes your pen is to stop growing (or) to get bigger.
    FACT:
    Masturbation has no effect on pen is size whatsoever.

    MYTH:
    Masturbation causes your testicles to shrink.
    FACT:
    Absolutely false! It is true that if you're highly aroused, your testicles become engorged with blood and may appear slightly larger and heavier, and that masturbating will make them revert to normal. But they will absolutely not be any smaller than after the last time you masturbated.


    MYTH:
    Masturbation causes acne.
    FACT:
    It doesn't cause acne. Like the eyesight myth, this is a case of two things that happen at the same time, even though one doesn't cause the other.



    MYTH:
    Masturbation causes sexually transmitted diseases.
    FACT:
    Hello? "Sexually transmitted" means from one person to another. You can't give yourself a sexually transmitted disease!


    MYTH:
    If you masturbate too much, you'll run out of semen and become sterile.
    FACT:
    Semen is a fully renewable resource. When you ejaculate semen, your body simply makes more — the same way your body makes more saliva after you spit.


    MYTH:
    People can tell whether you masturbate by how your ***** looks.
    FACT:
    Masturbation does not change the appearance of your *****. (It does tend to cause an *****ion, but that usually goes away when you're
    finished.)

    What are the side effects of masturbation from medical point of view?

    There are no harmful side effects of masturbation. Medical science has debunked many myths formally associated with masturbation, such as hair growing on the palms, insanity, or that masturbation will drain excessive energy from the body.

    Some people report feeling guilty about masturbating. Negative feelings associated with any behavior can threaten a person’s health and well being.

    The American medical community pronounced masturbation as normal in the 1972 publication Human Sexuality.

    WHY DO PEOPLE MASTURBATE?
    To experience pleasure
    To relieve tension (sexual tension or general tension)
    To relieve stress
    To engage in sex when a partner is unavailable or does not want to have sex
    To relax
    To learn about what feels good to them and how they like to be stimulated or pleasured

    MYTHS:
    The following are myths relating to masturbation that are unfounded in medical and social science.
    Only people, who cannot find sexual partners; or who are socially inadequate masturbate.
    Masturbation leads to physical problems such as mental illness and growing hair on your palms.
    Masturbation “ruins” a person for partner sex.
    Men will run out of semen or sperm if they masturbate excessively.
    Others, including medical doctors and sexual partners, will be able to tell if you masturbate.

    HEALTH BENEFITS OF MASTURBATION:

    A number of studies have proven the benefits of self-pleasuring to mental, social and physical health.

    Masturbation alleviates premenstrual tension for many women.

    Masturbation provides a healthy sexual outlet for people who choose to abstain from sex with partners or who do not currently have available sexual partners.

    Masturbation can be a route to safer sex, to help prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

    Masturbation allows for sexual pleasuring for those who are not ready to engage in ******l, anal or oral sex.

    Increases blood flow to the genital region, which can help overall sexual functioning.

    Masturbation can induce sleep.

    Masturbation allows people to become familiar and comfortable with their body.

    Masturbation is often suggested as a therapeutic technique for overcoming sexual dysfunction.

    For women, it can help them learn how to achieve orgasm.

    For men, it can help them increase ejaculatory control and manage rapid or delayed ejaculation.

    Masturbation can help alleviate stress.

    CAN A PERSON BECOME ADDICTED OR MASTURBATE TOO MUCH?

    People often wonder about the normal amount of masturbation. Each person must decide for himself or herself how much to masturbate. Professionals agree that there are no physical or mental implications for frequent masturbation, unless it is symptomatic of an obsessive/compulsive disorder (OCD). Symptoms of OCD are repeatedly performing a behavior to the extent that it interferes with daily functioning, professional responsibilities, or personal relationships.

    Behaviors that are performed to reduce stress or alleviate tension, including masturbation, are not considered symptomatic of a disorder unless they interfere with a person’s daily personal or professional life or hinder a person from fulfilling their responsibilities and commitments



    EFFECTS OF OVER-MASTURBATION:

    Frequent masturbation and ejaculation stimulate acetylcholine/parasympathetic nervous functions. Excessive stimulation can result in over production of sex hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin.

    Abundant and unusually large amount of these hormones and neurotransmitters can cause the brain and adrenal glands to perform excessive dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion and turn the brain and body functions to be extremely sympathetic. In other words, there is a big change of body chemistry when one excessively masturbates.

    Note: Masturbation is a healthy sexual behavior. Like other behaviors, when over practiced or addicted it can lead to both psychological and physiological imbalances.

    Side-effects of Masturbation

    Other than an immediate need for a towel or tissue, the effects of masturbation upon the male body were:
    Fatigue. Feeling tired all the time
    Lower back pain
    Thinning hair / Hair Loss
    Soft / Weak *****ions
    Premature Ejaculation
    Eye floaters or fuzzy vision
    Groin / Testicular Pain
    Pain or cramp in the pelvic cavity or/and tail bone

    When to say when
    How much is too much masturbation (and sex for that matter)? That depends but it's suggested men keep their ejaculation frequency down to 2-3 times a week. However, sexual activity can be experienced more often if men learn how to orgasm without ejaculation. Doing so can actually store bioenergy into your system and make your ***** firmer, your *****ions last longer, and your ejaculate volume bigger.

    Over masturbation participants experience problems with concentration and memory. This is a dangerous side effect of over masturbation and signals that the brain is being over drained of acetycholine. Over masturbation drains motor neurons and neuro-muscular endings of acetycholine, which is eventually replaced. Over masturbation can lead to absentmindedness, memory loss, lack of concentration, and eye floaters. To fight these symptoms, the chemical levels in your body needs to be balanced.
    Your love is all I need to feel complete.
