How much is too much masturbation?

I know this has been covered a lot, but I get a lot of conflicting stories, and I want to tell my personal experience.

So I usually like to masturbate slow , first reading an erotic story or watching porn on my phone, I start with the stories, then switch to the porn which usually gets me more excited, then I reach a peak. this keeps building up tension until I eventually give in. Usually I do it 3 times a week or so, but sometimes I would be real excited for a few days at a time and do it 2 or 3 times at the most for 1 - 3 days, then go back to my normal 3 times a week. Right now I am at my "peak". I started at night reading erotic stories for about 3 or 4 hours, obviously this is not all masturbation, I only REALLY masturbate when I get to a sex part. The story I was reading at the time was more of a romance story than erotic story, so there wasn't as much sex as normal.

Anyway, I ended up with an orgasm at around 6 AM, so I went to sleep and then when I woke up at about 2 or 3 PM, I was very excited again and couldn't help to start reading the story again. Usually I go on my computer and start to work (I'm my own boss), but I "took the day off" for the day since I woke up so late. I ended up going for more hours until 7 PM or so until I had another orgasm. Then my prostate area began to get uncomfortable, I don't know if this is exactly normal since I've seen guys say they masturbate 5 times a day without discomfort. Maybe it's because I've been working it out for so many hours? My penis itself wasn't sore and my prostate didn't HURT it was just uncomfortable, it's hard to explain, it would go in and out every 5 minutes or so, but it was a very light ache and didn't prevent me from doing anything, just enough so that you would know it's there. After a couple hours it went away somewhat.

A few hours later after I was on my computer browsing the web, I was getting excited AGAIN, and couldn't help myself but watch some soft-porn. :P
No doubt this got me more excited so when I went to bed I couldn't sleep. I was up fantasizing. I didn't want to masturbate again since I read on a website that if you masturbate more than 3 times a week, you'll get ED when you are young. I don't know if this is true, since at the end he was selling some type of vitamins, so that is the first question I want to ask.

Anyway, because of my fantasizing, I did end up masturbating again only for about 15 minutes and again had an orgasm. This is now 3 times in a 24 hour period. My pelvic area was a little sore, just a tiny bit more than last time. I vowed not to masturbate again in the morning and I didn't. When I woke up I wasn't sore down there at all. My goal was to wait until night, so that I would be at at least every 24 hours.

That didn't happen. :/ I was watching porn for about a half hour in the afternoon and when I went to the bathroom in the evening after I was done with my duties I began masturbating. I reasoned I would only be prepping myself for the night session. I've only ever been able to "prep" once or twice before. You need incredible self-control as you know. I didn't have any at the time and couldn't help myself and had an orgasm.

Now finally here is my dilemma, I did have the same slight ache until just about 5 minutes ago. It's still there very very lightly but not as much as 5 minutes ago, and even then it is not too bad, just a slight ache with and then it would suddenly intensify for 1 second and then go back to normal. When it intensifies it is STILL not a bad ache, just very slightly. It's been about an hour or 2 now since the orgasm.

I know I won't be able to sleep again tonight very easily. I'm just wondering if I should chance masturbating again tonight? Will it cause any damage to my prostate? I don't care about pain unless it is damaging, and obviously when something aches your body is telling you something, but can I just do it tonight without damage? Obviously I know my prostate or whatever is not going to give out just like that because of 1 orgasm, but I don't even want to cause slight damage to my prostate that will stay with me for the rest of my life, as my grandfather did die from prostate complications (might be cancer, we don't know for sure) and I heard it runs in the family. My dad is 62 and has no problems that we know of, but I don't want to chance it.

tl;dr: My first question is will you get sexual problems younger than normal if you masturbate more than 3 times a week?

My second is can I masturbate again before I go to sleep or will it cause permanent damage to my prostate?

Obviously I know I should take it easy for awhile, but I'm not sure I can. I'm not addicted, and certain could if I wanted to, but it's like a good video game, you can't wait until you get back to it because it is so fun.

Masturbation has never been a problem for me, when I get "peaks" I take a couple days off, but I don't let it interfere with my life for too long.

I just want to know how much masturbation is "safe"? Usually my goal is 1 time a day at night, that shouldn't be a problem, right? Or should I keep it 3 times a week? Thanks.

Re: How much is too much masturbation?

1 Day a night is fine...
Infact, Masturbation is good for you (it stops prostate cancer apparently).
Although, there has been a case of a kid who masturbated 40 times in one night... he died.

Re: How much is too much masturbation?

There is no frequency of masturbation that should be considered "too much" unless it is interfering with your day-to-day activities or keeping you from experiencing social events. And with those items, it has to be a constant interference.

As to your aching prostate, it's more so the muscles that contract to ejaculate the seminal fluid that ache after being used multiple times. This will not cause any damage other than the dull ache you are experiencing.

Enjoy!

AH, so it's more of a sore muscle than a sore throat down there? Thanks a bunch!

Re: How much is too much masturbation?

When I was like 20, no joke, I was masturbating about 3 times a day. Too much is when you can no longer keep an erection during actual sex. If you masturbate too much than this could lead to erectile dysfunction. True story.

Re: How much is too much masturbation?

When you start "taking the day off of work" in order to masturbate, you might be doing it too much. Once anything starts to interfere with your normal day to day life, it's worth considering whether it's compulsive behavior.

I'm self-employed so it's not a problem. It's more like when you are depressed and you don't feel like getting out of bed.

At the most I do it twice a day, nothing more.

I'm more concerned about long-term physical damage, like ED, etc. than damage to my personal life; I know how to control that.

Re: How much is too much masturbation?

Hey guys, I'm WONDERING, could this be the infamous BLUE BALLS? Due to the nature of my masturbation techniques, I'm wondering if it somehow leaves a lot of sexual tension built up, since whenever I do orgasm it's only due to really built up sexual tension, and I don't orgasm FULLY, since I don't use my hands or a toy, so it's not the same.

So maybe sexual tension is still pent up and can't release? That's why I am felling pain?
