The dangers of over-masturbation for women

A 23-year old female sex worker wonders about the risks of excessive masturbation on her health.

My clients sometimes let me masturbate a number of times until I have pain and can't take it or orgasm anymore. This happens on an almost daily basis. Do you know what the health risks are?

Personally, I don’t think your occupation, no matter how much money you make, is healthy or sustainable, leave alone safe.

I assume, like most women, you would want to someday hook-up, settle down, and grow old with someone. If that is the case then some of the physical, emotional, and physiological effects will be carried over to that relationship.

I am not in any way suggesting that you won’t be able to settle down and have a happy healthy sexual life, but unlike most, you will bring quite a bit of baggage with you. This will affect you and your future mate. You might have to spend quite a bit of time trying to work on many things in your future relationships. Given how much work, time, and emotions people invest in relationships, it will be an uphill task.

Obviously, if you are asking this question, then you have a feeling that the activities your clients make you do are a concern to you.

Pain and Mombasa Raha activities shouldn’t be on the same page. Sex, even paid sex, should be consensual and safe. The fact that pain is involved is in itself a warning from your body that whatever you doing is excessive or wrong.

Excessive masturbation, for both men and women, has serious consequences despite what most sexperts advise. It’s like the doctor saying a glass of wine is good for health, but then how many people stick to the one glass of wine? How many start off with one glass and end up finishing the bottle?

Over-masturbation can lead to urinary incontinence. Having sex with multiple partners can cause urinary tract infections (UTI).

The number of times you masturbate can also lead to yeast infections because of the change in the bacterial balance in the vagina. Women can become more prone to contracting vaginal infections if they have too much sex at a time.

Excessive masturbation can be uncomfortable because of the lack of lubrication. Women's bodies don't stay lubricated 24/7. If there is soreness or numbness, it's a sign your body is giving you to stop. Excessive friction may burst tiny blood vessels under the skin. Over time, this vaginal abrasion can lead to tissue damage, which can in turn cause scars.

You risk getting scar tissue or rough tissue around your genitals and clitoris which can lead to painful swelling and complications. The vagina needs plenty of lubrication to work the way it was meant to. If you are masturbating without the benefit of lubricants, you are on the way to causing serious damage to yourself.

Please stay safe and look after your health.
