Q & A – Masturbation, is it bad?

I was hoping you could answer some of my questions about masturbation because I’m not sure what to think or if there are any health consequences. Plus, I’ve always been told it’s bad, so I’ve never tried it. I want to, but I’m afraid it’ll turn me into a pervert.
Is this typical? Is it possible that I’ll end up in hell? Is it possible that if I do, something is wrong with me?

I’m hoping you’ll be able to answer my inquiries.




Thank you very much for your inquiry.

In terms of the message, masturbation is nothing to be ashamed of, guilt-ridden about, or afraid of. Most species do it naturally, and almost everyone has done it, sometimes without even realising it. I say this because one of the first things we do as babies and young children is explore our newly discovered bodies. We touch, squeeze, tease, and put our hands in places that we may appreciate but not understand certain emotions.

Unfortunately, the majority of the guilt or shame we feel as a result of our parents’ or guardians’ reactions to what we were doing stems from early childhood experiences. Consider this: when youngsters touch their genitals, it’s usually not out of sexual curiosity, but rather out of pure curiosity and astonishment. They are frequently ordered to stop because it is ‘bad,’ ‘filthy,’ ‘wrong,’ ‘gross,’ ‘naughty,’ and they are given disdainful stares from their parents.
Their hands are sometimes swatted away or even punished for it, and all of these events shape and form our perceptions of our bodies and how we use them without us even recognising it.


Sex Toys and Masturbation

That being said, I simply wanted to let you all know that masturbation is perfectly acceptable. There’s nothing wrong with getting to know your body and discovering what you want, as well as giving yourself an orgasm. There are many tools you can invest in to make the job easier or more pleasurable, from male masturbators to vibrators and clit teasers

Contrary to popular belief, masturbation has a number of health benefits: it relieves tension, reduces stress, aids in the release of pain-relieving endorphins (which is why the “honey I have a headache” is a poor excuse for not putting out), aids in the burning of calories, and is a natural sleep sedative.

It has been discovered that it helps men’s immune systems operate better, builds resistance to prostate gland infection, and may even lower their risk of acquiring prostate cancer. Not to add that it can assist men improve ejaculatory control and handle quick or delayed ejaculation — to put it another way, masturbation can teach you to endure longer.

Women can use it to relieve premenstrual tension as well as other physical symptoms related with the menstrual cycle, such as cramps and backache. It can help us acquire confidence in our sexuality as women by preventing cervical infections and relieving urinary tract infections. If you really want to be brave and blow your mind, try experimenting with any of our sex toys and see if you can find the elusive G-Spot.

Apart from all the other advantages, masturbation is an excellent approach to discover what you like and dislike when it comes to stimulating yourself and achieving orgasm. If there’s one thing I’m convinced of, it’s that you can’t blame your spouse for not assisting you in achieving orgasm if you don’t even know what it takes. It is your job, whether you are a man or a woman, to learn about your body and how to thrill it, as well as to inform your partner so that they can supply what you desire – the only way to learn is to do it yourself.

Finally, the most common questions I receive are “how much is too much?” and “how much is too much?”

“What’s wrong with me, I don’t know how to stop” and “what’s wrong with me, I don’t know how to stop”

I believe the best way to answer this question is to emphasise that you don’t need to be concerned as long as it isn’t interfering with your daily activities, such as keeping you from hanging out with friends, making you late for work, or is the only thing on your mind and the only thing you want to do day in and day out.
Masturbation isn’t a concern unless it’s associated with an obsessive-compulsive disorder, in which the same behaviour must be repeated again.

What constitutes “regular” masturbation varies greatly, ranging from numerous times per day, week, or month to never masturbating at all. Because everyone is different, what you consider to be “normal” may be very different from what someone else considers to be “normal.”

That’s all there is to it; hoping that was useful in some manner.
