Save some energy for the day

“It’s always safe when anything is done within a limit”. Because you know, you don’t want to look like the one with tired hands and guilt-ridden face after that.

Lets address some common myths first.

1. Masturbation keeps you fit

Testosterone is responsible for maintaining both muscle mass and sexual performance. Unfortunately, this hormone is available only in a  limited quantity 🙁

 If more of your testosterone gets diverted for your sexual performance, your muscle mass decreases. As a result, your body accumulates excess fat depending on certain factors like your physical activity, basal body metabolism,  number and frequency of masturbation.

So, it’s actually the other way round.

2. Reduces your stamina

Though you’ll experience a temporary spike in your stamina levels during the initial days of masturbation, it actually reduces your overall stamina and makes you tired and unproductive over a period. 

3. Reduces your intercourse duration

This majorly depends on certain factors like your age, frequency, position and time duration of your sexual performance.

Will you run out of sperms with frequent masturbation?

Men’s body constantly produces new sperms, and a man can ejaculate several times a day without depleting his supply. So, the answer is straight, No.

But, I’m not saying that excessive masturbation is a good thing. Like anything else, moderation is key. Overdoing it can lead to irritation or even injury and bleeding in the genitals. But in moderation, masturbation is perfectly safe and healthy.

Does Masturbation really cause infertility ?

The answer is both Yes and No. One, for young and healthy men, it’s a normal part of human sexuality and can even improve sperm health and blood flow to the genitals, increasing the quality of sperm. It’s also helpful to understand more about your body and what feels good, which can lead to improved performance during sex with your partner.

Now, I know what you might be thinking – what about the guys who say they’ve been masturbating for years and still can’t get their partner pregnant? Well, there could be a variety of reasons including hormonal imbalances, age, genetic abnormalities, and lifestyle choices and masturbation is not likely to be the cause.

If you’re experiencing fertility issues, it’s important to consult with a doctor and undergo proper testing to determine the root cause. On a side note, if you’re trying to conceive it’s good to avoid masturbation since it temporarily reduces your sperm count.

 So, there you have it. Masturbation is not something to be ashamed of or worried about – it’s a perfectly normal part of a healthy sex life. Don’t let the myths and stigma surrounding masturbation prevent you from enjoying it in MODERATION.
