I need help. Your website claims that masturbation is awesome and safe and everything, but it also claims that you can overdo it.
No one, however, tells me how much masturbation is considered excessive. Basically, I do it at least once a day, if not more, usually in bed. Right now, I don’t have a girlfriend, and I don’t want to damage anything down there.
Could you please tell me if masturbating once a day is excessive?
I wish I could easily address your query, but masturbation isn’t like eating properly; the FDA doesn’t provide us with a “regular allowance” for masturbation (which is a good thing, because I’m sure they’d give us a lowball number).
The amount of masturbation that people perform varies greatly. And you’ll surely read about people who never even tried once. Yes, some people will never even think about it throughout their lives, and this is usually due to their religious beliefs. On the other hand, others find masturbation twice or three times a day perfectly normal and healthy (those aren’t the only possibilities, there are unlimited variations about the frequency of masturbation).
Masturbation has no negative consequences, and it shouldn’t matter whether you’re single or in a relationship.
Masturbation, like all aspects of sex, is linked to a variety of factors, including physical, physiological, psychological, social, spiritual, and so on. As a result, the question of how much masturbation is too much masturbation or what is excessive masturbation would never have a single response.
That doesn’t mean that you won’t find people who can answer your difficult question in a straightforward manner. The topic of how much masturbation is too much has been the subject of hundreds of books, as well as countless religious tracts and sermons.
Some claim masturbation is evil, while others say it’s good if you’re young and single, and still, others tell you the truth: masturbation is perfectly safe and a vital part of sexual health.
For all of these contradictory messages, the most important thing is that you do exactly what you’re doing right now: ask yourself the question
The amount of times you masturbate in a day or week isn’t the only way to say whether you’re masturbating too often. You should investigate further, and you can begin by asking yourself the following questions about your masturbation habits:
- Is your masturbation making you uncomfortable?
- Is your masturbation causing you physical discomfort or harm?
- Is your masturbation messing with your life in unwanted ways?
- Do you experience a hard time stopping yourself from masturbating?
If you replied yes to all of these questions, it’s likely (but not guaranteed) that you’re masturbating excessively right now. This isn’t to suggest that there aren’t moments in your life that masturbating on a regular basis is appropriate.
It also doesn’t rule out the possibility that there are people who masturbate every day (or more) and are perfectly well and find no reason to masturbate less often.
Bear in mind that there is no magic number, and we all experience sex in different ways.
If you believe you are masturbating excessively (that is, if your masturbation is causing you discomfort or pain, or if it feels compulsive, or if it is interfering with your everyday life), you can seek professional help. Make sure it’s someone who’s at ease discussing sex and won’t make you feel guilty about your sexual behavior.
In conclusion, masturbation is a completely safe and normal part of the human sexual experience. And, it appears to be more common in men than in women.
