6 Really Good Reasons To Stop Masturbating

Masturbation is the act of the self-stimulation to achieve sexual arousal (mostly to the point of orgasm) and is said to be good for both your mental and physical health.

What could possibly be wrong with that?

A lot actually, while masturbation might be considered the safest kind of sex out there it could do more damage than good due to its addictive nature.

Here’s 7 good reasons for you and your man to stop masturbating and save that pent up sexual energy for each other.

  1. It can lead to skin scuffing.

Intensive rubbing on the pleasure spot can lead to dryness and increased sensitivity. This can cause chaffing and painful skin abrasions.

2. And that can easily increase the severity of an STI

No, you can’t get STI’s from masturbating but you can definitely make it worse (if you already have it). If your skin breaks due to chaffing, you can easily spread infections like Herpes and Balanitis from your sex organ to other body parts like the mouth.

3. You can also imbalance your hormones

Has your acne gotten worse, is your hair thinning? Well it could be because of too much self-pleasuring. During masturbation, your body releases the same kind of hormones like it does during sex and too much of it can lead to hormonal imbalance causing the above effects and things like prostatis and penile dermatitis.

4. Your guy will fail to keep it up and firm

Excessive masturbation can lead to a limp penis during normal intercourse because the mind loses its power of stimulation from the touch of another person. How you ask? Well, the reason why masturbation is popular is because you are almost assured to get an orgasm and your body gets used to a particular kind of method of achieving orgasm.

5. This is not going to happen instead you’re going to hurt your hand

It’s called Carpal tunnel syndrome and it is when your hand muscles lock in a particular position due to compression of the media nerve as it travels through the hand. Symptoms include weakness, pain and numbness in the hand.

6. Then there are the guilt trips

A lot of people have been brought up in communities that condemn masturbation. For such, self-pleasuring could easily lead to intense feelings of guilt that lead to self-esteem issues and self hate.

7. It kills your social life

Masturbation goes hand in hand (hehe) with pornography. One of the main triggers of happiness for the brain is sex. While you may not intend to be a snub, excessive self-pleasuring can easily lead to antisocial tendencies. Also, if not all people, most of those you meet will automatically be stripped down and sexed in your mind, which can be very uncomfortable for you.

Losing friends, a relationship and your ability to orgasm through normal sex, notwithstanding, the health risks you expose yourself to, is too high of a risk to pay for a self-induced orgasm.

Luckily, all of these can go away when you stop.

What’s your take on masturbation? Would you have sex with a baby in the room? Here are the rules.
