Masturbation is a self-stimulation for your genitals in a sexual way to the point of reaching an orgasm. It is very common behaviour for men and women to masturbate and is a very normal part of growing up for children of both sexes.
Is masturbation a common behaviour?
Experts and researchers in sexuality agree that masturbation is a completely normal process for human beings and is healthy sexual behaviour. It probably has a bad reputation because it is an intensely private sexual behaviour, which no one discusses even with the closest of friends.
Is Masturbation harmful?
No. from a health science perspective, it is not at all harmful for you to masturbate. Some people think masturbation is bad for moral reasons, however, that is a personal choice.
Is it healthy for a man to masturbate daily?
There is no right answer to this question. Masturbating daily can be normal for some men, whereas for others it can excessive. As long as masturbating does not affect your overall energy levels, and does not encroach on your daily life and activities, you should be fine.
Though, few sex experts consider masturbating daily to be excessive. Masturbating daily can lead to weakness, fatigue, early ejaculation and may inhibit sexual activities with your partner. On the other hand, missing out on regular orgasms increases stress levels and can add to mental health issues, frustration, and unhappiness in general. Masturbating aids stress release and helps to stabilise your mood, making you happier and healthier.
How many times in a week is masturbation considered normal for a man?
Again, there is no right answer to this question as the frequency per week can vary from man to man based on his general health conditions. There are men who masturbate two to three times a day, or five times a week, or even once a week.
Sexual drive is natural, however, an excess of anything is harmful. Therefore, rather than increasing the frequency of masturbation you can consider diverting your energy to things such as sports, or any other hobbies. This ensures that you live a balanced, healthy and happy life.
