First of all, the majority of masturbation is healthy and positive. “Over masturbation” or chronic masturbation is rare and means different things to different men.
Scientist decided to do some research with some extra hands and with a few extra dollars in their research budgets. They wanted to look into the subject of the effects masturbation and over masturbation had on our bodies.
So what’s the result?
Excessive stimulation of the acetylcholine/ parasympathetic nervous system can result in over production of sex hormones and neurotransmitters. These abundant and excessively large amounts of hormones and neurotransmitters can cause big changes in our body’s chemistry.
Masturbation is viewed as a problem if it interferes in sexual activity with a partner, when it’s done in public, or if it causes great distress to the person. It may cause distress if it is done compulsively. Or if masturbation interferes with daily life and activities.
We should note that masturbation is a healthy sexual behavior and like other behaviors, if over practiced or become addicted to it, can create both psychologically and physiologically imbalances.
Side-effects of Masturbation
The changes on our bodies caused by these imbalances can be:
Feeling tired all the time, fatigue
Lower back pain
Hair Loss/Thinning hair
Soft or weak erections
Eye floaters or fuzzy vision
Testicular or groin pain
Pain or cramps in the tail bone or pelvic area
When to say enough
So how do you know how much masturbation is too much (or for that matter, how much sex is too much)? It depends. We suggest men keep the frequency to about 2-3 times a week. But if you learn to have orgasms without ejaculation, you can have sexual activity more often.
Having sexual activity more often allows your body to store bioenergy to make your penis firmer for longer lasting erections with bigger volume ejaculations.
Memory and concentration are often experienced by over masturbation participants. It is one of the dangerous side effects and signals our brain is drained of acetycholine, which are eventually replaced. Absentmindedness, memory loss, a lack of concentration can be brought about from over masturbation.
The majority of masturbation is healthy and positive. “Over masturbation” or chronic masturbation is rare. Learning to control our needs can help keep our body chemicals in balance.
