Side Effects of Masturbating in Men

The first and foremost thing that should be pointed out in this post is the fact that it does not intend to lobby around the anti-masturbation behavior and this is not done for religious reasons. It should also be said that masturbation is a normal sexual behavior and is healthy as it can help people fall asleep and reduce stress levels, anxiety or other tension. Besides, it is also a great thing for immune functioning, a good thing for prostates and can help in increasing the levels of endorphin production.

Side Effects of Masturbation in Men

Touching May Make Climax Harder

One proven side effect of masturbation is the fact that it takes a bit longer for subsequent ejaculations. In case one masturbates several times before going on a date and having sex, they might have difficulty to reach climax. It is best advised to give the penis a day or two to recharge itself. There might be another grave impact: masturbating can become the only source of individual impact where men respond to their own touch but give a less response to the touch of other people. This would eventually make it a bit tougher to reach climax.

Reduce Firmness in Subsequent Ejaculations

This is one of the worst side effects of masturbation in men. With each ejaculation, men would notice reduced firmness in the next erection with the penis getting spongier and softer. However, there is no such evidence that proves the fact that too many erections would impact future erection. One more side effect of masturbation is swelling or abrasions of the penis.

Masturbation Brings About Guilt

A negative psychological impact of masturbation over a person could be the feeling of shame or guilt. This may be moral, religious or cultural issues which can make people be pretty hard to themselves. The fight will be between something that is pleasurable and natural against rules they are told to follow and things they are told to refrain from. This guilt is very harmful to their self-esteem, self-love or confidence.

Chronic Masturbation May Make You Unmanly

Chronic masturbating is reported to impact the body and mind chemistry, which is considered to be one of the serious side effects of masturbation in men. Masturbation may lead to overproduction of sex hormones or even the neurotransmitters. The results due to this may vary from person to person. Some people report fatigue, vision disorders, hair loss, testicular pain, pelvic pain, etc. If these symptoms happen, try to decrease your frequency of masturbation for some time to alleviate your symptoms. See a doctor if necessary.

Compulsive Masturbation May Happen

It is believed compulsive masturbation can impact a man adversely. Although a guy masturbating for 6 times a day may feel productive, others might feel just the opposite. But if you can’t keep balance between living a responsible life and satisfying your personal desires and pleasures, then your relationship, work, finance, self-esteem, and social support will be negatively affected.

Other Side Effects of Masturbation in Men

Too much masturbation may lead to hormonal changes within the body. The level of these changes totally depends on the number of times one indulges in masturbating. Potential risks may include:

  • Addiction: Masturbating might become an addiction if done too much. This addiction can be as harmful as any other drug addicts.
  • Erectile dysfunction: There is an increased risk to suffer from erectile dysfunction due to too much masturbating.
  • Neurological concerns: Several studies have indicated that over masturbation can cause severe neurological problems in men.
  • Premature ejaculation: Men masturbating too much would find it extremely difficult to control the release of sperms. And overstimulation of penile nerve is held responsible for this problem.
  • Pain: Rarely, too much roughness with the genitals might eventually lead to soring. Be gentle if this happens to bring things back to normal.
  • Emergency may happen: This is rare, but can still happen. When a man inserts an object in his anus and that goes too deep in the rectum, one may have to seek a professional for an emergency removal.
