FAQ - Is Masturabtion Bad For You


Visitors: 252

There are many myths behind masturbation and the advent of the web has helped allow many of these myths to spread and gain an unfounded following who believe them to be true. Here I list many of these folklores and can categorically state they have no basis in both medical and social science.

1. Only people who cannot find sexual partners; or who are socially inadequate masturbate.

This is completely untrue. Alfred Kinsey found in his 15 years study into human sexual behaviour that 95% of all males and 60% of females have masturbated. The National Health and Social Life Survey confirmed that 48-95% of people masturbate.

2. Masturbation leads to physical problems such as mental illness and growing hair on your palms.

Again unfounded and no scientific study done over the last 150 years has been able to prove otherwise. These folktales were originally perpetrated by religious faiths (e. g. The Roman Catholic Church) who wanted to control the population by fear.

3. Masturbation “ruins” a person for partner sex

The use of masturbation can in fact be used as part of partner sex and mutual masturbation is common practices by many people around the world. It maybe used as part of foreplay or another way to gratify a partner without the use of sexual intercourse.

4. Men will run out of semen or sperm if they masturbate too much.

There is a limited amount of sperm that the male can produce in one day. If a man was to masturbate several times in a short period them he may “run dry”. The average male will ejaculate 5ml (approx. 1 teaspoon) on his first orgasm. The male will always produce more sperm if given enough time.

5. Others, including medical doctors and sexual partners, will be able to tell if you masturbate.

The quick answer is they will not be able to tell. There isn’t any physical sign on a person that show after masturbation even if they did why that should bother you. Masturbation is normal and should be encouraged. If you feel the urge to masturbate then there should be no reason not too.

John Helios has a website what is the average size of a penis that is a valuable female masturbation resource. John had a scare a year back and wanted to help others by creating an online resource with is website. John used the Andro Penis to help him in older life to get a bigger penis size.
