Masturbation, top five facts (part 2)
Masturbation – we’ve covered it before – but it’s a big topic! So here are five more top facts. Did you know that the British government promotes masturbation? Or that masturbation can cure a common penis problem? And what is a Masturbate-a-thon?
Can you masturbate too much?
It’s okay to masturbate regularly. Even if it’s more than once a day, it’s not a problem. There is a limit – but it’s not about the number of times. If masturbation gets in the way of your daily activities, and you can’t go to school or work or meet friends, it can be considered too much, experts say. But only very, very few people have this problem. If you are worried about masturbating too much, you can always talk to your doctor or another health expert you trust.
Masturbating each other
You can also masturbate together with your partner, which is a form of so-called ‘outercourse’ (having sex without intercourse). Ask your partner what he or she likes and watch the body language closely. Sighing and moaning and heavy breathing are good signs! It’s important to know that all guys and girls are different and what might have worked yesterday or with another partner might not be a turn on this time. If you are unsure what to do, ask your partner to show you what gets them going and help you.
Prevent a common penis problem
Remember that we said masturbation is good for your health? Well, it can even prevent an unpleasant penis condition! Prostatorrhea is a problem mostly seen in men who for religious reasons don’t masturbate or have sex. The men will notice discharge from their penis while peeing. Doctors reckon that all it is seminal fluid – it’s so bottled up it literally starts leaking out! Young men can get sexually excited several times a day – whether they want to or not. Then the male genital glands start secreting fluid. These secretions build up and if they’re not released through ejaculation, they’ll seep out during urination.
Fortunately, there’s an easy ‘cure’ for prostatorrhea: masturbation!
A Masturbate-a-thon is an event in which participants masturbate in order to raise money for charity. They want to increase the awareness and clear the shame and taboos around masturbation too. It was a San Francisco sex shop that first came up with the idea, but now there are editions held around the world.
The event also gives away some awards – the current record holder for non-masturbation pleasured himself for an impressive 10 hours and 10 minutes. Women seem to have less endurance: their record lies at 7 hours, 6 minutes.
And the furthest distance ever covered with ejaculation? 4.22 meters! Fancy taking on that challenge? (For the record, anything from dribble to super-squirt is normal.)
An orgasm a day
Some European countries, like the UK and the Netherlands, encourage teenagers to masturbate daily. They say that it’s a healthy way to explore your sexuality. Health officials claim it helps teenagers to delay first time sex until they are really ready. The UK officials are also trying to reduce the number of teenage pregnancies by promoting masturbation. They say that just like exercising a few times a week, masturbating will keep you happy and healthy!

Hi Kongozoa, effects: sexual
Hi Kongozoa, effects: sexual satisfaction, lower stress levels, happy feelings. And yes, it’s possible to get a child. If it wasn’t, humankind what have died out a long time ago. But, it seems that there is something unusual in you, since you don’t see any semen on orgasm. Please talk to a doctor about this. It can be a sign of illnesses like diabetes, or conditions like retrograde ejaculation (where your semen flows in your bladder other than coming out).

Hi: 1) hw can some stop musturbation.
2) some docters hv proved it true dt musturbation cn make u barren is it true?
there is no scientific proof whatsoever that masturbation makes you infertile. If that was the case, sex would you make you infertile, too. As for your first question: why would you want to stop, when masturbation is a perfectly normal, healthy act? Does it cause you any problems?
My husband is not satisfying
My husband is not satisfying me in bed so I master burt. And I like it so when we make it love I don’t feel him any more so is there any addiction to it

Hi, there is this issue i
Hi, there is this issue i have been trying 2 find out. Mayb u can help.
IT started when i was in upper primary sch, then throughout high sch. Whenever I had an exam then I fail 2 finish a paper on time, when the teacher shouts “The time is up” and mayb I am still halfway answering the questions, then I start feeling sexualy aroused and ejaculate immediately (and it was realy enjoyable).
So one day one of my classmates told us when we were in high sch about how he goes through the same exprerience, and to my surprise almost everybody admitted going through the same.
SO my question is, WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN EJACTULATING DURING THE PAPER AND FAILING TO FINISH THE EXAM WITHIN THE REQUIRED PERIOD?
that’s a really interesting question.
Did this only happen when you didn’t finish the paper in time?
Yeah it happened whn i didn’t
Yeah it happened whn i didn’t finish the paper in time……and I did a small research with my friends in college and most of them experienced exactly the same thing!!
I can challenge you to contact the same research and u wil prove me right or wrong!!
we will look into it, because it sounds like an interesting phenomenon.
Do you have any of this research?
we couldn’t find any research, but we talked to a few colleagues and agree that it’s a combination of pressure, anticipation and adrenaline.
Is that what your research says?

why do you want to quit? Masturbation is a normal part of a healthy sex life, especially if you are not in a relationship.
why normally one gets tired
why normally one gets tired after sex or master
think of sex is a workout! And after you exercise, you get tired, and your body needs some time to recover.
That’s also why most men need some time before they can have another erection.

it’s totally normal. When you masturbate, you know exactly what to do to get an orgasm. Your partner, on the other hand, does what she thinks you like. And that feels different, and it can take longer to have an orgasm.

Hey Burks, this is not true,…
Hey Burks, this is not true, it is just a myth. Premature Ejaculation is caused by a number of reasons including fear, anxiety or even stress. Anxiety that one will not perform can make him ejaculate much earlier or stress from home or work. In other cases, particularly in young men it could be the result of sexual inexperience, and so as the young man gets older he also gains more experience in controlling ejaculation. Have a look at the following article for more information;-

Hey Simon, it is possible to get addicted to masturbation and yes one should watch out not to be addicted to the point they loose out on important tasks like school or work. The effects you take about are myths that are not caused by masturbation. For instance, premature ejaculation is caused by a number of reasons including fear, anxiety or even stress. Anxiety that one will not perform can make him ejaculate much earlier than they wish to or stress from home or work. In other cases, particularly in young men it could be the result of sexual inexperience, and so as the young man gets older, he also gains more experience in controlling their ejaculation.

Musturbation for the lady can help for urinary infection? And To remove the crystal stone?
Hello Shane, thank you for…
Hello Shane, thank you for your question. Masturbation in women can, in fact, cause a urinary infection. This is because just like penetrative sex bacteria are bound to move into the urinary tract. It is best to try and urinate after masturbation as it helps to flush any bacteria away from the urethra, and can ultimately prevent a UTI.
I do not understand the second part of your question, please explain it to me.

Mello Mycle, thank you for…
Mello Mycle, thank you for getting in touch but please do not worry. For starters, masturbation does not cause testicle imbalance. Testicles are supposed to be imbalanced. The testicles make sperm. To do this, the temperature of the testicles needs to be cooler than the inside of the body. This is why the scrotum is located outside of the body and one testicle is slightly lower than the other so that both can remain cool. Secondly, what do you consider the size of a small penis to be?
Please let us know and have a great week ahead. Stay safe!

Hello Kyms, thank you for…
Hello Kyms, thank you for getting in touch and asking a great question. Masturbation does not cause your penis to change shape in any way. How old are you? If you are still in puberty, your body is still undergoing changes that are completely normal. Penises come in all shapes and sizes. And they all look different: straight, curved, long, thick, thin, circumcised, uncircumcised. One is no better than the other and you have nothing to be ashamed of.

Hello Anatoly, the fact is…
Hello Anatoly, the fact is penile size cannot be increased without surgery. While there are a lot of people out there trying to sell you all kinds of products – pills, pumps, patches, creams, gels, sprays and stretchers – most of it is hocus pocus. And experts say that is because the penis is made of spongy tissue which cannot be lengthened or stretched. Even surgeries offer only a marginal increase in size.
This article has some information that you may find helpful on the issue.

Well, that’s an interesting…
Well, that’s an interesting point, Bashir, Indeed, if your goal is to have an orgasm without regard to whether you get it through masturbation or sex, then yes, it makes sense. However, note that while men always orgasm through penetrative sex, not all women get the same so maybe a combination of both masturbation and sex can help.
