Your Questions About Masturbation - Answered!

advertisement

Spanking the monkey, cleaning the pipes, choking the chicken, crank the shank; whatever slang you may call it, it's still masturbation. There's nothing to be ashamed about playing with yourself. In fact, we often receive queries about masturbation. Here are some of the commonly asked questions, as replied by Dr. Martha Lee, clinical sexologist at Eros Coaching and a Men’s Health advisor.

Is Masturbation Harmful?
It is perfectly healthy and an important part of sexual health, tied to our physical, emotional and psychological states, says Dr. Lee. But be aware of your body – watch for signs of soreness or sensitivity, and slow down if needed. If your masturbation is causing you pain or you feel compulsive, talk to your doctor or a qualified sexologist.

Does Frequent Masturbation Cause Premature Ejaculation?
For most men, their earliest sexual experiences are with masturbation (done secretly and quickly, for fear of being found out). And such instances can lead to issues of premature ejaculation when they enter adulthood. However, by using a lubricant and slowing down the stroking action when you masturbate – and letting yourself enjoy the sensations – you can help delay ejaculation.
  
Will It Cause Headaches?
Any type of sexual activity that leads to orgasm – including masturbation, oral sex and intercourse – can trigger headaches. Possible causes include overexertion during sex or even strenuous sexual positions. People who frequently suffer from migraines are also more prone to sex headaches. If they are really bothering you, see your doctor.
 
Can Masturbation Replace The Thrill Of Sex?
Okay, stop “practising”. Masturbation won’t give you the kind of mind-blowing eye-roller that sex will. You know it, your partner knows it and what’s more, Mother Nature likes it that way. According to a study by Stuart Brody, professor of psychology at the University ofPaisley in Scotland, the body releases 400 per cent more of the hormoneprolactin (which makes us feel sexually satisfied) following vaginal penetration than it does after masturbation. “Evolutionary forces always reward behaviours associated with successful reproduction,” saysBrody. “And penile-vaginal sex is the only sexual behaviour that passes in your genes.”

I am seventeen years old. Since fourteen years of age i watch porn and masturbate. I want to leave it. What is the possible suggestion and what does it affect on my life after marriage? Now the released sperm is not dense it's coming like liquid and in small quantity any natural cure

Just try not masturbating for at least 3 days then go somewhere you feel safe and comfortable, close your eyes and touch yourself: ejoy it, try to really feel it, have pleasure of that moment, take your time, relax. You'll also find yourself with more energies in the period of not masturbation. Try to live your sexuality freely, in a natural way and there won't be problems of any kind.

PLEASE DO NOT PROMOTE PERVERTED SINFUL LIFESTYLE. WANKERS ARE SINNERS WHO SHOULD GO TO HELL. SINGAPORE IS A CONSERVATIVE SOCIETY AND MASTURBATION SHOULD NOT BE OPENLY DISCUSSED AND WANKERS SHOULD NEVER BE ACCEPTED IN MAINSTREAM SOCIETY!!!

Some animals masturbates too and engages in homosexual activity. But that does not make them right because we are humans and not animals. God hates Wankers. Please stop propagating sin!

Sir, I used to masturbate daily,atleast 5 times a day for the past 2 years.I am frightened now but i am addicted to it.Will there be any effect on my sexual life in future?Plz do reply me...
