There are many myths and truths related to the side effects of masturbation. When it comes to side effects, on first hearing it may seem unbelievable as every man knows how much pleasure they gain through masturbation. There are several techniques of masturbations through which you can experience the pleasure.
Moreover, spending some time and playing with yourself can help you get a good sleep, reduce stress, tension, headaches and anxiety, stimulate the immune system, enhance endorphin production and keep your prostates healthy. However, in this post you will get to know about the negative side of masturbation.
Superstitious Masturbation Negative Side Effects
There are few myths related to the side effects of masturbation and they are all proved false by medical studies. Acne formation is believed by most of the parents and it is certainly a myth. If masturbation causes acne then almost 95 percent of male population would have been walking with zits all over their faces.
Masturbation cannot cause sterility. If testicles are regarded as sperm producing factories, they cannot close down due to substantial production. Though the volume of the semen and sperm count may gradually fall, but it cannot stop forever. Your semen does not contain any hair growth formula to grow hairs on your palm and as far as blindness due to masturbation is concerned, there is no medical evidence.
After one sexual encounter the subsequent ejaculation requires some time and if you masturbate just before going out for a date, you will certainly find difficulty in getting an immediate erection or reaching the climax. A break for a day or two will help your penis get recharged for the date.
Develop Unwanted Familiarity
The individual orgasm experienced at the time of masturbation often leads to reduced response of the organ to the touch of other people. It really becomes quite tougher to reach the climax at the time of sexual intercourse without the familiar touch.
Cause Spongy Erections
Subsequent masturbation with short breaks often leads to spongier and softer erection. Though the evidences are few, but there are chances of having reduced firmness in future due to masturbation habits.
However, cardiovascular problems and other factors like age, smoking and diet are also responsible for softer erection.
Inflammation of Penis
If you are having rough hands with harder palms, you may end up with inflammation or abrasion of your penis. Avoid vigorous strokes and apply lubricants to make the experience smooth and pleasurable.
Psychological Side Effects
There are many men who feel guilty about their masturbation habits and also cannot refrain from the pleasurable feeling. This often leads to harmful psychological effects like anxiety, shame and guilt and these psychosomatic effects give rise to physical symptoms like chronic back pain, headaches, etc.
Sex Hormone Overproduction
Chronic masturbation can cause overproduction of testosterone and neurotransmitters. Testosterone is the male sex hormone and overproduction can affect your body chemistry, the nervous system and the brain. This may lead to a plethora of physical problems like testicular pain, fatigue, vision changes, pelvic or lower back pain and hair loss.
