masterbating too much

Hey guys, professionals, I need some help here. Anyone ever tried to quit masterbating after doing it almost every day for 20 years? I'm finding it almost impossible to stop. Some experts offer a litany of health problems associated with over-stimulation of the adrenal glands. Is this true? Help!

It's not true. Masturbation, unless it interferes with your sex or social life, is no problem at all, unless you do it in public. It decreases the chances of prostate cancer.

I don't see why you would want to stop, certainly once a day isn't too much, however, it could make a difference when and where you are doing it, then it could be a problem.

If this were true, there wouldn't be a male from puberty on up without one.

Re: masterbating too much

I would just like to tell you something about me which might be the result of over-masturbation. I started masturbating when I was like 5 (how did I manage that?) and have been doing it once a day every day since the age of 10. Now I'm 20. I've been having erection problems when masturbating in the past 6 months. I've lost 90% of morning erection. Come to think of it, my erections have been steadily weakening the past 2 years, which I used to attribute to being tired of porn. I got my hormones checked and everything turned out normal. The doc can't do nothing about no problem.

I don't know what to do right now. My penis head feels numb and overall sexual sensation is poor most of the time. That BS of over-masturbation might have some truth to it, after all (hate to admit that).

Re: masterbating too much

Wow, it is kind of overkill job you did down there lol. Sorry man, I shouldn't be laughing but I didn't learn how to masturbate until I was 13. Five?! I don't think my penis was big enough at that time to masturbate lmao.

Try to not masturbate for a month or two, it should get better.

Is there some reason why you wish to stop?
As a woman who has been married twice, I can tell you that as far as I know, daily masturbation is pretty much the norm for most men.
I would not think that masturbating once (or even twice) per day, even in conjunction with an average amount of sexual activity, would necessarily be over-stimulating. Now, maybe if you were doing it seven or eight times a day, and it was interfering with your ability to perform with your partner, I'd see where you might consider it a problem and want to cut back.
But who is telling you that masturbating once a day is unhealthy?
Because this is counter to all the medical information I've ever heard on the subject.

Re: masterbating too much

Masturbating every day? Sounds normal to me. One thing: are you rough on yourself? Sometimes you can overdo - especially after many years of self-stimulation using the same technique. Consider that often, less is more. Go slower, gentler. Brush the penis lightly with fur or something similar. Enjoy the exquisite sensations. Bottom line, vary your approaches, don't feel guilty, but masturbate only when you have the DESIRE -- don't do it from sheer habit, a sure way to KILL desire.

Yeah I know I'm weird lol. I remember getting hard somehow and then I was rubbing my penis between my legs in bed before falling asleep. I did it only a few times though. I probably started doing it once a day when I was 10. I didn't learn to use my hands until I was 13.

And the rest is history.

I wonder if not masturbating for a month would help. I only made it to the tenth day once.

Re: masterbating too much

I'm with you, it is very hard not to maturbate at all for a month. The longest I have gone by without it was 2.5 weeks, and that was only because I was at the camp.
