Excessive Masterbation?

Is there any physical harm in excessive masterbation? i was reading on a site about herb supplements that it can cause things like fatigue thru the day, lower sex drive, and even hair loss! Yikes! What does masterbation have to do with hair loss?

what's the difference between excessive sex and excessive masterbation? I would think that too much sex (i.e. daily or more) would cause more fatigue because there's more physical effort required w/the weight of your body. Also, is there a difference between the outcome of excessive masterbation in males and females? Just curious about that.

I'm wondering if there is some truth to that or if its just a way to sell more supplements by claiming excessive masterbation causes all these things.

Re: Excessive Masterbation?

I'm around 40 and in decent health. I'm not in a sexual relationship right now hence the need to "take care of myself", by excessive I mean daily...

Re: Excessive Masterbation?

Excessive masturbation, is when you are avoiding any social situations where you might meet someone, so you can stay home and masturbate instead.
If you are not doing this, you don't have to worry.
The body avoids excessive masturbation, by disabling the penis from getting hard again. If you can get your penis hard, it is not excessive.

Re: Excessive Masterbation?

Well, I forgot what the article said now but it was talking about the chemicals/hormones that are released in your brain upon sexual gratification/ejaculation and that too much release of that can lead to fatigue, lack of concentration, etc things like that, not friction etc.

Re: Excessive Masterbation?

Nothing to worry about. Once a day is hardly excessive.

Well, I'm in my 30's and nearly once a day I'd say. Sometime twice a day but it depends on how much alone time I get as I'm married with children so it's not always something that is available. Still I doubt it would be abnormal aside from maybe being sore.

Re: Excessive Masterbation?

I started when I was 11 or 12... (now 25) nearly masterbating once a day. Early on it would be two or three times a day. At first, I thought it was great that I could last longer. Now I have sensitivity issues and it usually takes me over an hour to orgasm during sex; sometimes i'll just give up. It's just not the same anymore... To get some of the senstivity back, i limit sex and masterbation to 1-3 times a week max. If things don't get better i'm going to go ahead and try supplements (ViaPal J) I'll post results
