If bored with: Masturbating so much - please give yourself permission to stop or reduce. If masturbating this often due to boredom - recommend that you develop other areas of your life. Spend time with others, engage in sports, get hobbies, etc. Your excessive masturbation will not increase or decrease your testosterone level.
