The medical communiy says that masturbation is healthy and essentially every man who is capable of doing so will. There is no doubt that it relieves stress and is a fantastic sleep aid. Besides, you know how to do it best without any coaching to a sex partner. Listed below are 5 things that you might not know about masturbation. See what you think!
Does abnormal masturbation exist – you might have wondered if there is something like abnormal masturbation. What is being referred to here is about frequency and various techniques that men use. Basically there isn't on both counts. Humans are so diverse in all of their behaviors that there is great variation here as well. Frequency of masturbation varies depending on whether you have a sex partner and any stress you might be experiencing. Techniques really have a wide range including hand stimulation, wearing unusual clothing, mirror watching, using different positions or perhaps using a sex toy of some type. There really is no abnormal masturbation.
Is masturbation safe – you have to consider the fact that you shouldn't be able to get a sexually transmitted disease this way. You don't have to worry about muscle strains or unexpected movements that might occur with a sex partner. So, it would appear that masturbation is quite safe. However, if you are rough with yourself, you could damage the skin of the penis which can leave you irritated and raw. If you're rubbing against the sheets or carpet, this could easily damage the urethral opening. This will cause urine to spray all over instead of coming out in a nice neat stream. It has been reported that men who have severe urethra damage have to sit down to urinate since they really can't use a urinal anymore.
Masturbation will charge your life – solo sex can be a great learning tool. Men are afforded the opportunity to learn about their own responses. Essentially what feels good and what doesn't. This enables them to be able to pass this information on to their partner so they have a better sexual experience. A man can also begin to recognize that an orgasm is on its way and what to do to prevent premature ejaculation. At any rate, masturbation is a way with coping with a partner that is not available or perhaps ill and they can't have sex. Sometimes, sex partners have a miss-matched sex drive. Masturbation can relieve some of that pressure.
Can masturbation lead to sexual dysfunction – This is possible. Men who self stimulate in ways they don't with a partner can turn into a delayed ejaculation. This is particularly true if a man strokes very rapidly and with great force or friction. You see, your sex partner would not do this. This type of masturbation can make orgasm difficult or even impossible with your partner. Rough playing with your penis doesn't simulate your partner's hand, mouth or vagina. It is best to return to less rough playing and try to simulate your partner.
Masturbation and prostate cancer – so far there isn't a clear cut view of the relationship between masturbation and prostate cancer. One study published in Australia demonstrated that frequent ejaculation in your youth could help lower the risk for prostate cancer later in life. Another study published in the U.S. indicated that there was no link between ejaculation frequency and risk of prostate cancer. Yet, another study published in Great Britain found that young men that frequently masturbated had a higher risk for prostate cancer. They also found that frequent masturbation in older men apparently lowered their risk. They also reported that sexual intercourse didn't have any affect on the risk of prostate cancer. It is thought that factors other than masturbation are involved. Young men who masturbate more might do so because they have high levels of testosterone. That makes these men more prone to developing hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. As far as the older men go, frequent masturbation possibly drains fluids out of the prostate that are cancer-causing materials.
If you have impotence of an organic nature (meaning physical in nature), masturbating daily might be able to make the blood vessels work better over time. This may also improve nerve impulses coming from the brain. I believe the expression is, “use it or lose it”
