If there is something that we are all almost experts in, it is masturbation. After years of extensive practical experience, you think you know everything you need to know. But according to the experts, they may not do it. Here are some that may surprise you.
1. Masturbation does not have the health benefits that sex has.
“It seems that not all orgasms are created on an equal footing,” says S. Tobias. Kohler, MD, MPH, is an associate professor at the University of Southern Illinois Medical College in Springfield.
After the study, the study shows that intercourse has all kinds of benefits for men: for blood pressure, heart health, prostate, pain and more. You also think that masturbation. But this does not happen.
Why make a difference if you are pulling while you are having sex or alone? Nobody is safe But your body seems to respond differently. Even seminal makeup is different if you masturbate instead of having sex.
However, does it really matter? Have you been doing this honestly all these years just because you wanted to improve the health of your prostate? I did not believe it But a study, a follow-up of occupational health at Harvard University, showed that masturbation can help reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
2. Masturbation is not without risks.
It is certainly low risk. It is the safest form of sex possible. No one ever caught a sexually transmitted disease or got pregnant. But like other low-risk activities (chewing and walking), they still have some risks.
Frequent or raw masturbation can cause mild skin irritation. The flexion of the erect penis can tear the blood-filled rooms, a rare but frightening condition called a broken penis.
Koller saw companions with him after a strong masturbation. “After that, the penis looks like eggplant,” he says. “It’s purple and bloated.” Most men need surgery to repair it.
3. There is no “normal” amount of masturbation.
A man can hang on if they are too dominant. But not how many times it counts in a week (or day), that’s really important, says Logan Levkov, Ph.D., sexist and sex educator. It’s the way it fits into your life.
If you practice masturbation several times a day and have a healthy and satisfying life, it is good for you. But if you masturbate several times a day and you’re losing your job or if you stop having sex with your partner for that, consider going to a sex therapist.
Until then, there is nothing specific about masturbation is the problem. Mandatory masturbation is like any behavior that disrupts your life, whether playing compulsive poker or checking your social networks every two minutes.
4. Masturbation is not reflected in your relationship.
Levkoff says that the most damaging myth about male masturbation is that it is a sign that something is wrong in your relationship.
The truth is that most men masturbate. They remain orphans if they are single, in a bad relationship or in a wonderful relationship. It is something that have nothing to do with their partners.
Levkov says that masturbation is not just about sex. For many, it is a routine way to relieve stress, clean your head before working or sleeping.
5. It is almost certain that masturbation is good for your sex life.
Masturbation can help your sex life, because it is the way men learn what they love during sex. “I think women will be more sexually satisfied in their relationships if they stay as far away as men do,” says Levkov.
There are exceptions? Some men engage in a certain amount of stress while masturbating or motivating porn that they can not do with a partner, says Ian Kerner, Ph.D., a sex therapist and author of “It Comes First.”
However, Kerner says that these are the exception. “For the vast majority of men, masturbation is healthy,” he says. “Usually, I’m more worried about the man who stops masturbation, which may be a sign of anxiety or health problems, than the one who does it regularly.”
