Is Masturbation Bad For You?

“We have reason to believe that man first walked upright to free his hands for masturbation.” – Lily Tomlin

Again, no.

Doctors and psychologists say that masturbating can be healthy for you when done at healthy rate (a few times per month). Now, if you’re doing it multiple times per day, then you have something else going on in your life that is causing you to do this. You’re masturbating to mask the pain.

It can actually be unhealthy for men to not ejaculate at least once every 90 days. The semen can become infected and cause prostatitis or other bacterial infections in the urinary system, which can spread into other areas of your body.

The problem becomes when watching porn becomes a trigger for you to start masturbating to the point of ejaculation. And as we’ve already seen, porn is highly addictive, making it easier for masturbation to become a problem.

It’s just like alcohol is not inherently or always bad for you. If you have a glass of wine once per week, then it’s not a problem and can in some cases be healthy. But if you abuse it, it can become very bad for you.

The key is everything in moderation.
