Male Masturbation Techniques
Self Esteem and sex:
Masturbation is a normal human experience. It cannot cause anything other than the sensation of being aroused, pleasured, and curiosity...Right?
It is when we put unachievable rules on normal health human behavior that we cause shame, guilt and emotional damage.
Almost all humans have masturbated or are masturbating as part of their normal sexual experience. Let's destigmatize this. ...Read more
Basically yes: It's impossible to do controlled studies. Frequency of ejaculation does not correlate with prostate cancer but may with prostate hyperplasia ("hypertrophy"). Anecdotally, single men who have struggled not to masturbate for whatever reason have had precocious prostate disease, and in any case, trying to abstain to the point of being uncomfortable makes it hard to work, play, even get to sleep. ...Read more
I guessed....: I assumed you meant how soon you can have an ejaculation after one masturbation. If so, you meant the expected refractory period after an ejaculation. Generally speaking, it's: the younger, the shorter, but widely varying among men and with their personal energy ; ability. But no matter how strong a person can be, frequent masturbations in a short time will exhaust you like sleep deprivation... ...Read more
No: I'm not aware of any problems, unless you are too agressive and injury your penis. There is a refractory period after orgasm such that you may not be able to perform for some hours afterward. This refractory period gets longer with age, but masturbation help keep the system functioning. ...Read more
Are there any relationships between male masturbation and his astigmatism? Otherwise what're the causes of astigmatism?
No relationship,: Astigmatism is, in basic terminology, irregularity to the cornea surface. The cornea is the clear dome in front of the eye and the major refractive (light bending) surface of the eye. If the spherical shape of the cornea (either anterior or posterior surface) is abnormal, then the image projected is distorted. Astigmatism may also be induced by your natural lens as well. ...Read more

Some handy facts...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem).

Masturbation: No. Masturbation is a regular part of normal adolescence. Most young teenagers discover that masturbation is sexually pleasing and recognize that self-stimulation is an expression of their own developing sexuality. A child who masturbates is not oversexed, promiscuous, or sexually deviant. Nor will he go blind or insane, grow pimples or warts, or become sterile. ...Read more
Mostly good: A young man learns about his body and mind, is able to stay comfortable physically and mentally and focused on the other things he needs to be doing, and by varying his technique prepares himself for different possible partners. It's a problem only if he's obsessed with erotica to the extent of interfering with real-life relationships. ...Read more
Why?: This is considered a normal part of emerging human sexuality. It is more common in adolescence with a transition into more typical sexual activity when older. It is frowned on in many cultures and has many myths attached to its practice. You don't try to fix normal. ...Read more
No: Sexual activity is often the cause of a urinary tract infection in women because of the anatomy, including the shorter urethra. If you do have a urinary tract infection and you're a guy, you need to seek the cause with your physician's guidance -- even one real UTI in a guy is a heads-up of an underlying problem. And eating hot peppers can mimic a uti. ...Read more
Very few: Too tight a grip can cause irritation of the skin & also leave you unprepared for the differences among women. Getting caught's embarrassing. Web erotica creates unreaslistic expectations. Generally, it's a good thing, keeps you comfortable & focused & you learn about yourself. There's nothing "spiritual" about despising the natural things that will soon make you a grown man. ...Read more
It does not: I'm very sorry that somebody told you this. The "scientific basis" is the discovery that sperm counts per unit volume of semen are lower if a man ejaculates frequently. The reason is that more fluid is reabsorbed during abstinence. There is nothing "spiritual" about telling or believing untruths about your body; growing up is difficult enough as it is. Think about the girl you'll marry. Cheers. ...Read more
It's safe & healthy: Claims about it "lowering sperm count" reflect less resorption of fluid if you ejaculate often. Claims that it will make you insensitive to the humanity / feelings of others are based on ideology, not real life. Claims about acne and other physical woes are just untruths. If you're obsessed with erotica & missing out on other things you should be doing, a bit of medication / therapy will help. ...Read more
