New York, NY ( pitchengine ) March 02, 2012 - Although masturbation is a normal and healthy sexual impulse, there can be such a thing as too much masturbation. Unfortunately, the embarrassment most men feel when talking about issues of a sexual nature means that many of them are completely unaware about how much damage excessive masturbation can do to their penises.

How much is too much?

Most males begin masturbating in adolescence when they are around 12 or 13 and usually start off masturbating about once every one or two days. However, males can usually increase this amount once they get into the habit of masturbating frequently, while some men can actually get addicted to the physical release. Ideally masturbation should be kept to around two or three times a week, while masturbating more than once a day is typically too much and can lead to negative penis health.

What are the negative side effects?

There are many ways you can damage your penis by masturbating too much:

- Penis skin irritation - as you may expect, frequent masturbation can lead to an irritation of the skin, making the penis red and sore - Loss of sensitivity - over time, the penis can get used to the constant contact and attention of masturbation, meaning it can become desensitized during intercourse. The dry rubbing effect of masturbation can damage cell neurons in the penis and may eventually lead to diminished sexual pleasure - Dry penis skin - occasionally, a ‘callous’ effect may be noticed on the penis where penile skin begins to toughen and harden. Again, this can lead to lessened sensitivity and diminished pleasure during intercourse - Cracking or breaking the skin - excessive masturbation may cause the penis skin to split. Although you won’t be able to see them, these tears in the skin can cause a lot of damage as they allow viruses and bacteria to enter and infect the penis, as well as travel to other areas of the body - Urethral damage - men suffering from urethral damage can often end up with scar tissue forming on their urethra. This can then lead to difficulty urinating, as well as a diminished amount of ejaculate being released during climax which can lead to fertility issues - Erectile dysfunction - this can occur due to the capillaries in the penis becoming damaged, while other veins may appear damaged and unsightly. Later in life, this damage to the penile capillaries can lead to difficulties in getting and maintaining an erection - Misshapen penis - Peyronie’s disease is an illness that occurs when frequent masturbation actually begins to affect the shape of the penis. Sufferers from Peyronie’s disease often have curved penises or experience a shortening of the penis shaft.

Other effects

It is also possible for men who masturbate excessively to suffer from chemical imbalances in the brain. The purpose of ejaculation is to release sperm and DNA in order for reproduction to occur. However, frequent masturbation can lead to a depletion of core chemicals and hormones in the brain, most notably serotonin, acetylcholine and dopamine. This depletion means the brain is constantly producing more of these chemicals in order to balance the body, meaning men who masturbate excessively can suffer from severe and abrupt chemical changes.

Steps Men Can Take to Prevent Penis Health Issues

Men can avoid penis problems resulting from frequent masturbation by using a lubricant when masturbating, cut back on frequency of masturbation, be more gentle when masturbating and perhaps, most importantly, by using a penis health creme (health professional recommend Man1 man Oil) to restore penis skin and repair damaged nerve endings and capillaries..
