Is Wanking Harming Your Love Life But Saving Your Life?
So I am not writing this blog to say stop wanking your self-pleasure time is a healthy and normal part of everyone’s sexual health. Just think about it this way, we like our enjoyment of cheesy chips or beer, everything is best enjoyed in moderation. The same can be true for masturbation.
There can be too much of a good thing.
You Are Training For Speed
Some guys have trained themselves to wank quickly, which can lead to ejaculating sooner than they’d like when they’re getting it on with their sweetheart. This can even lead to premature ejaculation issues over the long term.
You Are Missing Out On Life
Have you ever stayed up just a bit too late rubbing one out, or were late to school or work because you got carried away in the morning? Or maybe you turned down an opportunity to meet someone to stay home and watch porn and enjoy yourself, by yourself? You aren’t alone.
Your Chemicals Go Into Overload
There is always can be too much of a great thing. And then it’s not so great. “When you masturbate, your body starts to kick out hormones and neurotransmitters, which can be healthy in moderation, but can lead to an imbalance when overly generated,” says Hall. “Eastern philosophies have warned about ejaculating too frequently as a drain on men’s health for thousands of years”. These physical symptoms can include back pain, tired, dry eyes, and problems with vision, fatigue and even hair loss.
You Will Have Difficulty Getting An Erection Or Reaching Climax
Overdoing anything is unhealthy for the body, and with overly frequent masturbation a guy may find that his erection is just not getting as firm as he’d like. Similarly, reaching climax may become more difficult. All of this should reset itself if he reduces his masturbatory practices for a while.
All Manor Of Skin Issues
Any excessive rubbing of the skin can cause chafing, where the skin barrier becomes disrupted leading to dryness. To avoid this, you can use a moisturiser or lubricant to allow for gliding over the skin. It’s the same concept behind putting petroleum jelly on the nipples before a marathon to prevent chronic rubbing.
A Pain In The Hand
Carpal tunnel syndrome is evidenced by numbness and weakness or pain in your hand, due to pressure on the nerves on your wrist. And guess what else can cause that? Most often it is caused by repetitive wrist motion that occurs at work, although it could absolutely be caused by hobbies like masturbation. If you find that during masturbation you have pain, tingling or numbness in the thumb, index finger or middle finger, you may be giving yourself carpal tunnel syndrome and might want to dial it back a bit.
So You Think You Are Safe From Infections
Yes you are right you can’t get STIs from self-pleasure, but you can spread outbreaks from one area to another. Chronic infections of the penis, such as balanitis, and outbreaks of Herpes II are also more common with excessive masturbation due to the increased chance of skin breakage. Stress also decreases both the body’s ability to produce natural lubricating factors and to heal such lesions.
But How Is Wanking Saving Your Life?
Just as taking a shower should be a regular occurrence, so too should be cleaning your pipes, as the health benefits of ‘choking the chicken’ are plentiful. Here are the 10 reasons why you should take matters into your own hands right now.
Wanking Will Make You Harder
As you get older, you naturally lose muscle tone and yes even your cock. Regular sex or masturbation works out your pelvic floor muscles to prevent erectile dysfunction and incontinence. You can aim to fuck or wank three to five times a week for rock-solid results.
As Much As Wanking Causes Premature Ejaculation It Can Help Manage It
Therapists across the globe have found that men who experience premature ejaculation during sexual intercourse can benefit from masturbation before sex. This enables them to have a longer duration of intercourse before another ejaculation comes on.
Wanking Prevents Prostate Cancer
A great 2003 Australian study found that men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer. The disease-causing toxins build up in your urogenital tract and when you wank, you flush the bad guys out of your system.
Wanking Wakes Up Your Sperm
A number of well published studies have found that masturbation improves some quality and motility. Theoretically, a man masturbating before intercourse releases the residual sperms in the semen transporting tubules. This paves way for new ‘better’ sperms which are released during the sexual act and increase the chances of conception, which can add to your health benefits.
Wanking Can Fix Man Flu
Another small study demonstrated reduction of swelling of vessels in the nose during sex and masturbation. This theoretically may improve on symptoms of man-flu aka, the common cold, hay fever, allergic rhinitis and other such health-related ailments.
Wanking Is An Anti-depressant
Masturbating releases a slew of feel-good neurochemicals like dopamine and oxytocin that lift your spirits, boost your satisfaction, and activate the reward circuits in your brain. An orgasm is the biggest non-drug blast of dopamine available, and benefits your health in more than one way.
Take pride in every wank from now on because what it does first and foremost is get you off. Additionally it also allows you to understand your body better, help you to release tension, let you explore your own fantasies and pursue sexual pleasures all on your own. Just do these things in moderation.
