Masturbation:side effects and benefits

Masturbation is a common activity. It’s a natural and safe way to explore your body, feel pleasure, and release built-up sexual tension. It occurs among people of all backgrounds, genders, and races.

Despite the myths, there are actually no physically harmful side effects of masturbation.

However, excessive masturbation can harm your relationships and everyday life. Other than that, masturbation is a fun, normal, and healthy act.

BENEFITS

Masturbation is a healthy sexual activity. It has many benefits for your physical and mental health.

 

There are limited studies on the benefits of masturbation, but there are studies on sexual intercourse and stimulation.

 

Research and anecdotal reports suggest that sexual stimulation, including stimulation through masturbation, may help you:

 

relieve built-up stress

sleep better

boost your mood

relax

feel pleasure

relieve cramps

release sexual tension

have better sex

better understand your wants and needs

 

Couples may also mutually masturbate to explore different desires, as well as avoid pregnancy. Self-pleasuring also helps you prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

SIDE EFFECTS OF ADDICTION TO MASTURBATION

Some people can and do develop an addiction to masturbation. You may be spending too much time masturbating if masturbation causes you to:

 

skip your chores or daily activities

miss work or school

cancel plans with friends or family

miss important social events

Addiction to masturbation can harm your relationships and other parts of your life. Masturbating too much may interrupt your work or studies, which can lower productivity.

 

It may also hurt your romantic relationships and friendships, because you don’t spend as much time with your loved ones as you used to, or don’t pay attention to their needs.

 

If you’re worried you may have an addiction to masturbation, speak with your doctor or a counselor about ways to cut down on masturbating.

 

Talk therapy can help you manage your addiction. You could also cut down by replacing masturbation with other activities. Next time you have an urge to masturbate, try:

 

going for a run

writing in a journal

spending time with friends

going for a walk.
