Health : Wanking for Health!

Did your mother ever tell you to “stop that or you will go blind?” I’m sorry, but mom was wrong. Happily, there is no known correlation between masturbation and poor eye sight.

Masturbation is very common, even with those in relationships. Several reports have claimed that over 95% of men masturbate.

We know most are ‘doing it’, but what are the possible health side effects of masturbating? First, you could reduce your risk of prostate cancer through regular masturbation. A study of over 1000 men who had developed prostate cancer and 1,250 men who had not, found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer. Why? It appears that ejaculating may prevent carcinogens from accumulating in the prostate gland.

For those that suffer from urinary incontinence, masturbation may help you to “hold your water” by strengthening the pubococcygeus muscles. If masturbation is not enough to help, then there are exercises known as the “Kegel workouts” that can also help strengthen this muscle. In addition to helping with urinary incontinence these exercises can help create a stronger erection, help with premature ejaculation and can even “allow some men to achieve a form of orgasm without allowing ejaculation, and thereby perhaps reach multiple “climaxes” during sexual activity.”

Masturbation can also lead to better sex and sexual relationships. Masturbation is a great form of intrapersonal communication, and may positively affect your ability to relate to a sex partner. Masturbation is a method by which you can get to know what you enjoy and do not enjoy, potentially enhancing sex with a partner. Masturbation may lower your blood pressure. A small study has shown that full intercourse resulted in the lowest average blood pressure in stressful situations with masturbation also leading to lower blood pressure compared to those with no recent sexual activity.

And some professionals even consider masturbation to be a cardiovascular workout. (hummm, I wonder if I can get Weight Watcher activity points for jerking off?)

It is important to remember, as with all things, moderation is key. Too much of a good thing, even masturbation, can be a problem. Compulsive masturbation can be a sign of other emotional problems and can have some undesirable outcomes. But for the most part, masturbation is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity that is pleasant, fulfilling, acceptable, and safe.

It is a good way to experience sexual pleasure, possibly improve your health, and can be done throughout your life.

    I always thought that the more you clear out your pipes, the better you’ll feel inside and out. Plus it’s fun. I’am sure we all have a pud pounding story under our belts.

    I really enjoyed reading this article. Very informational and I will continue to masterbate for the rest of my life. Thank you for this article.

    This true. There is notwhen everthing wrong with mastubation at all. I do it whenever possible, when in a relationship or not.

    I agree that it is great to keep the juices flowing! It could become addicting so slow the roll. Also incorporating yoga and tantric exercises makes it a powerful tool for self transformation. Semen contains cerebral fluids that contains stem cells so you have to respect the activity. Make sure your images are healthy and positive over the usual energy draining porn that robs ones life force and can create issues in relationships. People find strange when I encourage retention, holding the load at the point of ejaculation by using the muscles and the mind. Not only is there great health benefits, but each retention increases the orgasm but you will experience it all the way up the spinal to the brain, and have limitless energy. Try it!

    We cannot generalize, if not the majority of continent/in real celibacy, priests and monks of all religions, should report higher number of prostate illness, and this is not, on the contrary, that seems happenning much more often to married men, of al orientations, with an entire regular sexual active life, but other benefits of a good sexual-affective practise in all it is nice to being certificated!

    Sigmund Freud & Alfred Kinsey both, said that 89% of the male population do it consistently ! That’s a lot chizz!

    Some people do see only the things they want. Did everybody read the article to the end before they started to post their comments? Lol, I guess, not many reached the last paragraph: “It is important to remember, as with all things, moderation is key. Too much of a good thing, even masturbation, can be a problem. Compulsive masturbation can be a sign of other emotional problems and can have some undesirable outcomes.” But it is always useful to see and know the true diversity of the world through your comments. Thank you, guys. Have fun, be good, be safe.

    I saw one 75 yr old patient who asked me if it was ok for him to masturbate 5-6 times a day! Jokingly I said, “yes, just keep it up”!!! I saw him again a couple of years later for prostate cancer! Mmmmmmmmmmm….?

    I am 33. When I was in college, I was addicted to masturbation. Some days I’d masturbate 6, 7, up to 8 times.

    Those were the days…maybe that explains my good grades in school back then. hmmmm……

    I’m guynxxxtdoor on A4A if anyone is curious.
