Talking The Good and Harmful Effects of Masturbation

Well I've been researching quite a while about this From what I learned so far, masturbation is not a sin, and though unproven, it is said to be quite beneficial to the body. It does burn a few calories, that's guaranteed. And besides that it's said to have nearly all health benefits one gains via sex. It boosts the self confidence, especially that of teens. Though unproven, it's said to boost the immune system. Anyways it definitely helps to stay away from those embarrassing sleep ejaculation episodes.

As its proven that it's not bad, why all these religions are unnecessarily proclaiming that it is a big sin or something? I can't understand this. I think it's ok unless one doesn't get addicted to it. And everybody should atleast did this 'sin' once. So what about you guys? Do you guys think it's evil too?

Default Re: Masturbation - Evil or Good?

EDUCATIONAL GUIDE

Frequent masturbation and ejaculation stimulate acetylcholine/parasympathetic
nervous functions. Excessive stimulation can result in over production
of sex hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, dopamine
and serotonin. Abundant and unusually large amount of these hormones and neurotransmitters can
cause the brain and adrenal glands to perform excessive
dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion and turn the brain and
body functions to be extremely sympathetic. In other words, there is a
big change of body chemistry when one excessively masturbates.

Masturbation is a healthy sexual behavior. Like other behaviors, when over practiced
or addicted it can lead to both psychological and physiological
imbalances.

THE SIDE EFFECTS OF SUCH CHANGES ON THE BODY INCLUDE:


Lower back pain

Thinning hair / Hair Loss

Weak Erection

Premature Ejaculation

Eye floaters or fuzzy vision

Groin / Testicular Pain

Pain or cramp in the pelvic cavity or/and tail bone



Masturbation plays a big role in a normal sex life. Some of us discover it as
children because it starts to feel so good between our legs. Others are
shown by our friends. We continue to masturbate because it feels so
good. It gets us ready for mature sexual relationships when we reach
adulthood, and it helps us take care of those raging hormonal urges and
surges when we are teenagers. Masturbation can enhance mature sexual
relationships where two partners use it either as a prelude to other
sexual activity, or as the main fare. And it keeps us going when
relationships falter, such as when a partner is ill or away. It is a
great equalizer in a relationship where one partner needs more sexual
activity than the other.


HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH MASTURBATION?


depends but it's suggested men keep their ejaculation frequency down to
2-3 times a week. However, sexual activity can be experienced more
often if men learn how to orgasm without ejaculation. Doing so can
actually store bioenergy into your system and make your penis firmer,
your erections last longer, and your ejaculate volume bigger.

Masturbation is a part of life and our sexual practices. In fact, most doctors
recommend it, not only to improve sexual experiences but to also
promote good general health. However, like most things in life, too
much of a good thing can be bad. Excessive masturbation can lead to
symptoms like stress, fatigue, and memory loss. In extreme cases,
sufferers fall into the pitfalls of impotence and hair loss. Under most circumstances, masturbation is neither good nor bad

One recently published study reported that 87% of women and 95% of men have
practiced masturbation but when done to extreme, it causes drastic
changes in brain and body chemistry. Masturbating too much can
over-stimulate acetylcholine/parasympathetic nervous functions and
disrupt the liver's release of enzymes that synthesize
neurotransmitters acetylcholine, dopamine, and serotonin. Additionally,
the liver's ability to release enzymes that aid in hormone production
is affected. As a result, the brain and adrenal glands produce too much
dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and other hormones and neural
transmitters.

SYMPTOMS

(also called Sexual Exhaustion) is distressing liver and nervous system
functions, include youthful impotence/erectile dysfunction (including a
soft or weak erection) and seminal leakage. While more than 30% of men
have experienced impotence at one time or another, impotence in youth
is more rare and can often be attributed to the above factors. Over-masturbation can also cause problems such as seminal leakage, which can cause sperm to ooze or leak out of the penis with no accompanying erection. Both semen leakage and youthful impotence are embarrassing, uncomfortable, and signs of Sexual Exhaustion.

Semen leakage is a sign that the parasympathetic nerve, which keeps the
ejaculation valve shut and holds the erection, is weakening as a result
of over-masturbation. With a weakened nerve, maintaining an erection is
a problem.


GET RID OF THAT ADDICTIVE BEHAVIOR


The first step to getting better is to reduce masturbation and ejaculation
frequency and try to overcome this bad habit. Eat more soybean products
and eliminating excessive caffeine from your diet. Focus on nutty foods
like sunflower seeds, and peanuts and eat more sea foods, seaweed,
vegetables, and try to minimize red meat and dairy product intake.
Instead of soda, try drinking orange juice or cranberry juice and, of
course, drink plenty of water

there may be scientific benefits to masturbation but morally masturbation is very wrong. It is just like forcing nature to go faster than normal.

i don't know if its evil, but i think that its usually tied with porn and that's not healthy. i have met someone that does it and he is up in age. he's been doing it since youth. i don't think that he is evil. however, he doesn't have a lot of stamina and his interest in sex isn't good. he seems to masturbate instead of having a healthy relationship. i don't think its good. don't know if this happens to all, but it doesn't seem to be a very healthy practice. the notion that it is healthy sounds misleading. if one is a christian, then one would know that the world is alienated from God, so basically when the world says it right, i would caution anyone, claiming to be a christian to be careful, and not trust outright what the world says.

Most individual had experience masturbation but the only question is how much would you do masturbation. Daily would be an addict and that would be harmful, in my opinion most does masturbation because of he/she has nothing to do.

So most of the time make you day worthwhile and busy.

Coffee Re: The Good and Harmful Effects of Masturbation

I can't agree that dairy food intake is bad! It's actually a rich source of protein. Protein is the building blocks of human body. It's required for getting strong muscles too. Whey protein(milk protein) is the easily digesting protein when compared to Soya.

Usage of red meat should be reduced.

Masturbating once in a week is really good. Biggest plus is, it can prevent ejaculation during sleep.

excessive masturbation causes baldness? I became bald at 19 and thought it was due to genetics although my dad has a head full of hair at 50. I guess it is too late now.

There are no bad effects of masturbation. I'm 34, have a wife, had a lot of girlfriends in my life, I have a full head of hair, and I do it very often I ejaculate about 10 times a week, I feel great, I'm not going to hell, I lead a great life. Nothing bad from that ever.

Masturbation is a great sin against God. Masturbation is worse than even fornication and adultery. Masturbation destroys your body, your soul, and your spirit. Stay away from masturbation.

Every person has his/her own take on life. But regardless of this fact I believe that a majority of these people have found masturbation to effect their life in a negative way.
Either psychological, socially and a possible physical. I think it depends on the party involved.. So with that, if something don't feel right then naturally we evolve and try to better ourselves in other to cope with the situation and for those who are comfortable then remain in your comfortable state.. As simple as that!

I don't think masturbation is a good idea. masturbation can make you age faster. It changes your body's hormone levels and hence your body chemistry. Excessive masturbation destroys your sexual and reproductive health and weakens your weakens your brain power. There are so many harmful effects associated with masturbation that i cannot list them all out here. I am a med student in my 3rd year and have done several readings on this topic. I used to enjoy masturbation as an act so much until i read those harmful effects. when it is happening in your body, most people don't notice those changes at first. you only realize the changes in your body when it is actually too late to reverse them. the best advice I can give you is to stay away from excessive masturbation.

I am a Christian, and I have a lot of scriptures to quote to prove that masturbation is a sin. I think first of all I find it funny that people think there's nothing "wrong" with it when it's been clearly stated that it has some "negative health effects". Forget the Bible for a second. You've been told all the health issues you have to live with if you practice masturbation, and you still want to indulge in it? Don't you think about your health and how it can affect others? I think that should be the basis of your decision, Christian or non-Christian; your health. That being said, I'd like to comment on one of the points raised above. Indeed, whatever the world says is right is automatically wrong in God's eyes. The world is concerned with gratifying the desires of the flesh, and God is against that. Galatians 5:16-17 makes that clear. In my attempt to prove masturbation is a sin, I'd like to pinpoint one obvious reason. Sin gives you pleasure, but subconsciously makes you feel bad. That is what masturbation does.

Now nobody can say I'm wrong here because if you didn't think masturbation was wrong, you wouldn't contemplate whether it is right to do it or not. That's simple logic. But then again, it seems human beings don't make logical decisions anymore Masturbation is a sexual activity which involves another person. Only that the person is imaginary. The Bible says sex out of marriage is wrong. Masturbation is sex outside marriage and like actual premarital sex, it defiles the body in God's eyes. Our bodies are His temple (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) and He commands us to keep it holy because He is and cannot dwell in filth. Apostle Paul pleads that we keep our bodies holy and acceptable to Him in Romans 12:1. Furthermore, it controls you because there is a spirit of masturbation. This is where addiction steps in, and one can be in bondage for close to 10yrs or more. This does not mean you will try to control how many times you do it so that you do not get addicted, no. Once you start, you've become a victim and it will take God to help you out of it.

Please stay safe and do not indulge. God has no issues with helping you quit; He is ever committed to change you to be more like Christ. But have you know that sin gets forgiven, but doesn't go unpunished. Our brother David can testify to that in 2 Samuel 12. For non-Christians, the Biblical aspect was not for you because most of you wouldn't even try to understand it. But honestly, upon all the health risks, why do you think it's healthy?

For someone to accuse others for masturbating it is really point a finger to oneself, accept the truth,everyone does it, but my advise is never make yourself get addicted to it, once a day is enough

I don't think that masturbation is bad why because it makes you feel good and prevent you from committing rape or incest when you are too freaky out ,the only effect that I know about masturbation is that after masturbating yourself , you become conscious of what you did is stupid .
