Masturbation affect one's height/growth?

Hi, I heard somewhere that masturbating too much can affect someone's height/growth? Is this true? I'm 16 years old now, and i hope i can still grow a few inches. And i don't want to affect it by masturbating too much. Any information would be great.

Masturbating too much won't affect your growth or height. If it did, all guys would not be greater than 4'!
Go ahead and masturbate and stop worrying, its a normal part of growing up.

It will also make you go blind, grow hair on your palms, reduce you bodies precious fluids, and drive you insane.

Don't you love some of the fables concerned with masturbation.

When being chased by hungry tigers it is not more important to be faster than the tigers only fster than your friends

Re: Masturbation affect one's height/growth?

I've heard a lot of the fables, but this one kinda makes sense. Cause what I heard is that masturbation raises your testerone level or some level, thus, decreasing your ability to grow or something. I really have no idea....hope it's a fable though

Re: Masturbation affect one's height/growth?

Your testosterone level varies throughout the day. It stays within a range but its not usually at a same value. I wouldn't worry about it affecting your growth though. Your final adult height is predetermined by what is in your genes. Unless you're malnourished or do alot of weightlifting then you should be okay.

It didn't effect my growth. I started masturbating at 13, and I was about 5' tall. I have continued to masturbate on a regular basis, and now I'm 26, sexually active, and I'm the tallest in my family at 6'3". I think it's a fable.

Yeah it just aint true.

I'm 6'2" and believe me I am no stranger to masturbation.

I'm afraid that morals and people's inability to talk about and acccept sex throughout the ages has lead to various fables which bear no resemblence to reality.

Masturbate and be happy, you won't go blind either unless you are so well endowed you poke your own eyes out <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> <p>[This message has been edited by happysteve (edited 12-28-2000).]

Re: Masturbation affect one's height/growth?

1. Regarding tigers: it is most important to remember that if you all turn around together, it will be you chasing the tigers!

2. Masturbation does raise your testosterone levels and that makes masturbation more interesting. It doesn't just seem that the more you do it, the more you want to do it. That is a real affect. But, increased testosterone levels will not affect your growth (either your height or your length). However, eating sugar before bed time can affect your height. Increased sugar in your blood at bed time prevents growth hormone from being produced and that will reduce your height. Growth hormone is also responsible for producing nitric oxide in your blood and that promotes strong erections. So don't eat to much sugar before bed time.

Re: Masturbation affect one's height/growth?

it's impossible for masturbation to affect someone's height/growth, i've been masturbating daily or ever more often since i was eleven, and i'm now 6'9" (i'm 19 years old and still masturbating a lot), so masturbate as much as you want and enjoy it

BOY! If it did affect ones height/growth, there would be an awful lot of really short 'pigmies' running around! They would all be smiling though!

Re: Masturbation affect one's height/growth?

One more time.....masturbation only causes an orgasm and ejaculation which causes a clean up!!! Has no effect on size, shape or bend of one's penis. Does not cause blindness, hair on the palm of one's hand, memory loss, pregnancy or any STD.....it is the only form of safe sex and costs us nothing. Masturbate and enjoy!
