10 Side Effects of Excessive Masturbation

In this article, we will discuss several side effects of excessive masturbation. Before going to explain negative impacts of masturbation, we will explore what is masturbation.

 What is Masturbation? 

Masturbation is a common sexual activity, which involves touching the genitals or other sensitive areas (like the penis, nipples, earlobes, kissing the neck, play with a vagina) or the use of sexual toys to get discharge to gain sexual pleasure. Usually, men do masturbation by discharging themselves with their hands, or toys, or discharge by watching sex movies.

Masturbation is considered a bad and shameful activity that has negative effects on the body and mind and can also lead to psychological concerns. Some people consider it fun and self-pleasure. Many modern sexologists say it is safe but they also agree with the side effects of excessive use of masturbation.

One study was conducted on older adults and married persons to figure out the number of people who masturbate. The estimated numbers showed that during the last month 41 to 65 percent of men masturbate and between 27 to 40 percent are females.

Masturbation Can Make You Feel Guilty

Some people believe that masturbation conflicts with their religious, moral, or cultural beliefs. They adhere to religious customs, and nearly according to all religions, masturbation is an immoral activity. They consider it a shameful and immoral activity because nothing is above religion according to a person who believes in his religion.  

Too Much Masturbation Reduces Sexual Sensitivity

Many types of research and studies have shown the negative effects of aggressive masturbation because too much stimulation on a penis during masturbation can cause reduced sexual sensitivity. It also causes erectile dysfunction. It happens because of death grip syndrome. If a person uses a tight grip, he will definitely damage the tissue and nerves of his penis which will decrease sensitivity.

Change in Behavior because of Excessive Masturbation

One of the main side effects of excessive masturbation is change in behavior. When a person masturbates more than his desire, he may face some laziness in his behavior and will skip work, studies, or important social events. Such men cannot focus on their daily life routines and eventually suffer from failure in achieving goals, avoiding their responsibilities and becoming psycho patients.

Relationship Gap 

At the same time, too much masturbation also can destroy your social life. A person addicted to masturbation will boycott social gatherings and events and even he will stay away from his wife or partner which will cause a relationship gap. He does not like foreplay with his partner and thus causing a relationship gap. 

The person who is addicted to masturbation loves to stay more at home than go out. He prefers to stay alone in the room and makes excuses to avoid any occasion of social gatherings.

Lack of Romance with Wife or Life Partner

Masturbation may also hurt one’s romantic relationships with his wife or life partner because he does not spend as much time with his loved partner. The lack of romance among both partners can create an atmosphere of unhappiness.  

If a man masturbates when he is single, he may experience trouble achieving orgasm and ejaculation since the vagina offers a different feeling than a hand or a sex toy. It can cause premature ejaculation and eventually he will stop doing sex with his partner.

Excessive Masturbation Can Cause Oedema

When excessive pressure is put around certain parts of the body, it causes swelling. The part of the body swells up because of the retention of fluid in body tissue in oedema. The same happens in maturation when a person holds his penis with a tight grip during the peak of sexual arousing.

Masturbation Causes Premature Ejaculation

Excessive masturbation with the use of hands or sex tools may cause damage to the nerves because of pressure. These nerves allow for ejaculation and damage to these nerves can cause premature ejaculation or nightfall, or wet dreams.

Masturbation Affects Your Sperm Count

Low sperm count is also one of the side effects of masturbation. When someone is involved in excessive masturbation, his body’s capacity to build testosterone is hampered and can reduce sperm count.  

The Most Harmful Effect of Masturbation: Infection

Sometimes, men ask their partner or another person to discharge them with masturbation. Moreover, if a man is an infected person, he may infect other persons when they touch his genitals and may suffer from Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). STIs can also occur with sharing of sex toys.

Excessive Masturbation Makes You Thin and Pale

Masturbation does not make you feel weak in general. However, too much masturbation can make you thin and pale. At the same time, excessive masturbation also causes weakness and laziness in men and eventually will forbid them to concentrate on their responsibilities.
