Re: effect of mastubation

I think we all love it! In fact, it's actually keeping your equipment very healthy and is something you'll need to continue to do until you can't do it anymore! Seriously, as we age it is important to keep masturbating as it helps prevent prostate problems. You're in your sexual prime, many of us masturbated daily and even multiple times when we were teens and young adults. As you get older the frequency will diminish, but you'll still be taking care of things by hand sometime. It truly is the only safe form of sexual release. The only effect you should have is that frequent ejaculations decrease the available semenal fluid and sperm, so you probably don't get alot of volume in the amount of an ejaculation, although that is different for all of us, and can be different from time to time. Keep jerking off as much as you'd like! And take care of the equipment, it's the only set you'll ever have!

Re: effect of mastubation

Thanxs a lot Lance2 for your reply to my doubt. I totally agree 100% with u but some say it may harm my health. Some say that frequent ejacualtion can reduce the lubrication quantity in my joints all around my body eg. like in my knees. i REALLY have no idea as to how true is this. if u can clear this doubt of mine, i would be very glad indeed.

Unless someone can show you an actual scientific study that proves this, I wouldn't beleive it. This is almost akin to saying jerking off will grow hair on your palms. If that were true, a lot of guys would look pretty strange.

Re: effect of mastubation

If all the old 'myths' were true there would be about 50% population of the Earth who had hairy palms, were blind, had leprosy, were insane and were all gay! We'd be erased as a species in 1 generation!
I always wondered why all the masterbation hype dealt with males and not females!

Re: effect of mastubation

LOL! If this is true, I know a lot of men who are going to have VERY dry joints soon! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> The guy I dated before I met my hubby did it daily. To my knowledge he's not incapacitated with 'dry joints'...don't mean to make light of your serious concerns. I have done searches and can't find anything on the internet about it, so all joking aside, I doubt VERY seriously that it is true. Lighten up! Enjoy yourself!

Take Care!

Re: effect of mastubation

Steve

Maybe some other health problems are causing your problem. Are you on medications? abuse drugs?, abuse booze?

If you do intend to sue, I'd recommend retaining Johnny Cochran (no pun intended).<p>[This message has been edited by Arney (edited 05-09-2001).]

Re: effect of mastubation

Who are you going to sue? Your left hand or your right one?

Ok, I know I'm female and probably am stepping in a big pile here..but here goes...

Just the same as women can desensitize their clitoris with prolonged use of a vibrator, I am sure that men's penises are prone to problems too. I guess where I am confused is that my ex-bf did it everyday and it seemed to be a bonus thing because he could outlast me without a problem and could actually *** more than just once with one hard on. Ok, so maybe that was a bad thing. Maybe he wasn't totally honest with me. Maybe the orgasm wasn't intense enough that once was enough. Who knows? Anyhow...I think that this would go right along with the golden rule of life...Anything in moderation is OK. Hope this has helped you, it has all just confused the h**l out of me! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Take Care!

Sherri.

Re: effect of mastubation

Iíve heard that people who masturbate will actually have BETTER sex lives, then those who do not, because they are more comfortable with their sexuality, and have fantasized, etc. However, in my opinion, masturbation depletes you somewhat... especially if you just jack off very quickly without warming up to it (just to "get off" quick), it can be hard on your body. Eat an apple or something after ejaculating, as your body needs energy to replace the seminal fluids you just lost. If you consistently ejaculate every single day, try going for 3 or 4 days and see how you feel. I've heard it takes 72 hours to completely replace all seminal fluids (I have no idea if this is true, I would expect it would depend on the person). It's also good to gain control over your own sexuality. I've gone for several weeks without masturbating. I think the longest you would want to go for is a week or two. If you go for too long (month or two?) hormone levels can drop off. However while ejaculation might be somewhat depleting, I think orgasms can actually improve your health and well being. This is just an opinion. I'm sure if you were having sex you'd have energy to do it more often. It may be more an issue of creating sexual energy then being depleted through ejaculation... I'm not sure. Because do girls feel tired when they masturbate? I don't know, but I feel like I have more energy if I wait a few days in between, rather then doing it every day... (and yes I know that orgasm/ejaculation makes you initially tired, I mean beyond that). It's also probably different for different people.<p>[This message has been edited by dylon8000 (edited 05-12-2001).]
