Masturbating Too Much : The Side Effects

Nowadays, masturbation is not quite as taboo as it used to be. And within reason, since it’s about discovering your body and flooding it with feeling good hormones. However, there are side effects when it comes to masturbating too much.

Before getting into it, let me preface this article by saying that when done reasonably, masturbation is healthy. After all, it’s a source of pleasure that stimulates the immune system, improves mood and reduces stress.

On the other hand, when we polish our noodle too often, it can become dangerous and that’s what I will explain in this article…

Are You Masturbating Too Much? – The Signs

Masturbating too much is often linked to obsessive behaviours. For instance, if you absolutely need to have a quickie every single day, at a specific time and/or several times, it can easily become obsessive. If it isn’t yet.

Before sharing the signs of someone who suffers from chronic masturbation, I will explain the risks linked to it.

Masturbatory excess can cause important behavioural issues. Especially, when it comes to sexual intercourse. For example: if someone needs a pornographic stimulation in order to have an erection, that person may find it difficult to have one with an actual sexual partner.

Also, this kind of sexual dependency can interfere in the work environment, personal life and it can increase feelings of guilt (as if the person was doing something prohibited).

Improve your energy levels with these effective tips.

Here’s a list to know whether someone is suffering from chronic masturbation:

  • This person needs to masturbate to cope with anxiety or depression. In some cases, guilt can be experienced afterwards.
  • This person doesn’t have enough time to fulfil social obligations due to excessive masturbation.
  • Often, this person feels a continuous desire, which creates a need to masturbate excessively.
  • This person suffers from physical damage due to excessive friction. The penis can have moderate to serious wounds.

What are the Effects of Masturbating Too Much?

There is no real definition that differentiates someone who masturbates regularly and another that does it too frequently. However, the negative effects resulting from it are very real.

If you recognise one or more side effects in the following list, you will have to make a decision to improve your sexual health:

  • A State of Permanent Excitement: In the long run, this feeling can change brain connections and thus, become permanent. If you are always sexually aroused, then, it’s not normal. It’s time to take care of it. This phenomenon is the result of the brain adapting itself to the excess of masturbation. Your brain isn’t used to it so, it will adapt by making you feel horny even when the situation isn’t adequate.
  • A Lack of Sexual Appetite: Often, chronic masturbation can be the result of boredom or a prolonged period of sluggishness. If you struggle to get out of your home or to find a partner, professional help might be beneficial. Don’t wait, until things get worse.
  • Physical Wounds: The skin of the penis is extremely sensitive, as you undoubtedly know. An addiction to masturbation can cause moderate to severe irritation to it. In the most extreme scenario, you could suffer from a penile fracture – which is a rupture of the cavernous bodies that can cause your penis to be filled with blood (not in a good way).
  • An Addiction to Pornography: Nowadays, pornography is an industry worth billions. However, should you need it for stimulation, beware… porn addiction is a very real pathology. Moreover, porn can also create an unrealistic vision of sex. Consequently, that can provoke an incapacity to get excited in front of a sexual partner. In this case, it’s recommended to stop watching porn. Period. (1)
If you are willing to stop watching porn, I highly recommend this article.
  • A Depressive State: Ironically, depression can be the cause or the result of chronic masturbation. If you are depressed and you masturbate to compensate, try finding a healthier alternative and please, do not be afraid to ask for professional help. If not, you will enter a vicious circle. You will masturbate to get out of your depression but once the juices are released, you will feel guilty and even more depressed.

A doctor and/or a therapist can REALLY help you. I mean that.

A Few Final Words if you are Masturbating Too Much

Do not become obsessed with your wanking practice… The problem isn’t really linked to quantity – as always quality is far more important. Also, it’s far more important to masturbate because of an actual need/release versus boredom/depression/habit.

The question that you should ask yourself is: Do you masturbate to compensate the lack of something or because a natural surge of desire happens?

If you feel guilty afterwards or if masturbating impacts your daily life, there’s an issue.

I strongly recommand a consultation with a psychologist or sexologist, if you think there is a problem. Do not be ashamed, these professionals are respectful people and by law, they can’t share what’s been said.

Don’t wait any longer!
