Great question.: The honest answer is no. Although arguably you could be doing sudoku or word search puzzles.

No: It does not. However, should it become an all-consuming addiction, then emotional and interpersonal problems can arise for the person, but not cognitive decline.

No: Essentially all men do this. If you are obsessed with erotica to the extent that it is interfering with other things, your physician can fix this with talk and maybe mess. Porn is a dead end, wig unrealistic fantasies and perfect bodies. Why not think about finding true love or a happy lifetime relationship?

No.: Masturbation doesn’t cause problems with cognition, memory, baldness, or problems with one’s palms. These are myths that were started well over a century ago. If you’re having trouble with your thinking or memory please have an evaluation; it has nothing to do with masturbation, and it may be something treatable, such as depression or anxiety.
