If there is one thing that almost every guy is an expert at, it’s masturbation. After years of extensive, hands on experience, you probably think you know everything there is to know, but maybe not everything. That is why we are going to talk to you about whether masturbation is technically harmful or unhealthy for your body.
So, can we start this one off with saying that the myth about there being a normal amount of masturbation in a day, week, year, however long you want to specify, is just that, a myth. In fact, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether you masturbate too much or not, it’s actually how it fits into your life that you should be concerned about.
Look at it this way if you masturbate many times a day and have a healthy, satisfying life then good for you. However, if masturbating as frequently as you do ends up causing you to somehow miss work or due to the frequent amount of masturbation give up on sex with your partner. Then we recommend that you see a sex therapist to discuss how best to go about the situation.
Now, on to whether masturbation can be damaging outside of your sex life. Sure, masturbation is classed a low risk, the safest form of sex possible, you’ve heard all of that before. After all, no one caught an STD from himself or made himself pregnant. But much like many other low risk activities, it still has its risks.
Frequent or rough masturbation can cause minor skin irritation. Forcefully bending an erect penis can also rupture the chambers that fill up with blood, a rare but gruesome condition called penile fracture. So what you need to do is avoid causing your penis to look like an eggplant and you won’t have to go into surgery because you decided to overdo it.
So, masturbation can be harmful and unhealthy should it have any negative effects on your life, and there are risks of frequent and rough masturbation. We hope that this has informed you, but if you have any further questions or need treatment then contact us and see how we can help.
