How often is it safe to masturbate

I don't really know if this is a stupid question for a 22 yr old to be asking but here goes...I masturbate almost everyday and I am really troubled by this habit...I haven't suffered any side effects but my friends say that this is what causes excess acne(I had this till a year ago) and it also reduces body mass(or body weight).I go to the gym regularly and I think I have an 'ok' physique. What I am asking here is, is it possible that masturbation is slowing down the mass gain?? (or some thing like that)... I have read that masturbation is not harmful...but how often can a person do it??

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

No, masterbating once a day will not have any effect on mass gain, there is absolutely no research that supports a link between masterbation and acne.
You have absolutely nothing to worry about and are a perfectly normal human male. Also, the only time masterbation is harmful is if it is interfering with your normal everday activities, ie work, school, eating, sleeping. Or you are masterbating in an unnatural manner... whatever that means, you will know if you are.

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

Your friends are either extremely ill-informed, or are pulling your leg.
Many men masturbate three times a day, with no ill effects. I used to be one of them, when I was younger, and managed to maintain an excellent sex life as well.
I had no acne, was skinny, but not excessively so, and felt fine.

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

If you married and took a piece very day do you think they would say the same thing.
Hogwash. The acne thing has been traveling around since Adam. Did they tell you that you would go blind too? That was an old tale as well. You worry too much.
Enjoy yourself.

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

Your friends are joking with you. Masturbation daily is normal and healthy - most guys are doing it and as you can easily see, most don't have acne or any other obvious ailment.

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

they may know something is up, due to your increased arm muscles.
but they can't prove a thing.
it must be driving them crazy.

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

No problem, how much you masturbate. If you like this, then do it!

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

i was an athelete 10 years ago. cycling. the first things the coatch tell you
it's don't masturbate. it's the same for others sports.
that reduce your muscle mass. but you can't see how much.


just think that if you masturbate once a week instead of once a day, you will
have more muscle. try during two months only once a week. you will see the
effects. you will be in better shape after two months.

but at the same times it's good to think about the girls. keep the thought, don't waste the energy.
and you will have more girls. because they like the muscles very much.

i have a post here about that leopard777

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

i try to explain :

Look for example you eat very healthy. You work a lot in your company, You have a very vivid
life, you go out with 5 friends three times a week. And you do sport boxing. Then you should be
95 kilos of muscles.
But you masturbate once a day. Then you lost a lot of muscle mass. You will not be skinny.
You will still be 86 kilogramms. Just you could be 8 kilos more if you didnít
masturbate.

you mass muscle decreases according to your life style.
Now you have a quite life. You work but not so hard, you make an easy job.
You eat supermarket packaging food. The week end you donít have any leisure.
At night ,you watch TV, just have two friends and go out once every two weeks.

Then you should be 68 kilos.
But because you masturbate every day, then you will lost 8 kilos muscle mass. You will
be 60 kilos.

Masturbate too much ,too much alcohol , too much smoking drugs, garbage food, decrease the
metabolism. Itís not good for the metabolism.
Masturbate once a week is better that once a day.
Masturbate once a month is better than once a week .
No Masturbate is better as once a month.
But catching girls is very good for the metabolism.

And their is something else. Your erection.
According to your life style, you should have good erection until 45 years old.
But because you masturbate every day, you will have erection problems.
something like 8 years earlier, at 36 years old.

I m proud of this answer. a complex and sophisticated explaination.
Enjoy the new muscle mass. Girls like muscle mass very much.

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

This is not help.
It is posting your opinion, or an anecdote, as if it was established fact.
There is nothing to back up this view. It is groundless.
I masturbated three times a day, for years. I have fine erections at 55. I have had no problems with women. I am not particularly skinny. I don't eat junk food.

Re: How often is it safe to masturbate

Masturbating has the same effects that sex does on your body, and both of them are healthy for men to do everyday. And if you want a woman's perspective on the muscle thing... don't obsess over your size so much; a lot of girls find it annoying and might even feel self-conscious with a guy who has ridiculously huge muscles. If you want to do it to impress other guys, go for it.
