Dear Gautham,

Anything in excess is harmful to human body, as per a research conducted in USA sexual experts believe that masturbating 2-3 times a week is absolutely safe. Yes if you keep on shagging(masturbating) it is harmful and will affect your future sexual life, over masturbation may affect the nerves which are present in the Penis and as a result you may experience Erectile Dysfunction or premature ejaculation. So better control masturbating anymore.

Anjali  :)

What Anjali said is absolutely right i agree with her.

han...han... that is absolutely right .... anything in excess is always wrong....moreover it is very difficult to control the masturbating habit which will also leads to serious disorders like lack of concentration on anything, or night falls and even impotency .....I would suggest you to to masturbating once or twice in a month not more than that or face the consequence

good ans. very helpful.

Yes Anjali Mam is right
commented Apr 14, 2016 by Anjana devi (135 points)
I am a 34 year old woman and presently a care taker of 8 boys in a boarding.....I make sure each and every boy masturbates twice a day as it keeps them stress free and healthy......i have been doing this since 6 years and i see my boys doing well and feeling confident in life ......teenage boys should make masturbation a good habit

Masturbating daily helps boys control stress and be confident and easier to concentrate all day long and have an punch of freshness whole day. At night it revives your body further and induces better sleep all night....

Thank you

To this day there is no evidence to say that masturbating can cause any sexual malfunction, other then what is referred to as, "Retarded Ejaculation: which is where you can only receive sexual satisfaction from masturbation." This simulates erectile dysfunction but is not.

In order to have healthy sperm production a male human must have sex a minimum of 3 times a week which includes masturbation, however, the act of sex with someone you love encourages the release of known and unknown hormones into the body which is vital to being happy and healthy.

No, Masturbate does not affect health. If you feel like guilty after it then physiology it will effect but if you feel enjoy, happy it will recharge your body very strongly. All sex experts have proved it and I am29 yr old I had same experience. Just enjoy it. It is safest sex.

Hi.....Gautam. Yes if you masturbate daily it will affect your health...
Consequence's of daily masturbation:-
1. It will affect your memory.
2. It  will affect your social behavior.
3. It will affect your concentration power.
There are few benefits of masturbation but if you do 3 4 times in a week.
1. You feel happy.
2. Love to do other tasks.
3. You feel confident and you behave good with girls.
So i advice you not make it a habit do 3 5 times in a week.
And stay healthy..........
and follow anjali advice.........:)

Masturbation should not be accomplished as a rule like morning and evening tea, or lunch and dinner. It should be taken just an alternative of actual sex under a situation when it is not possible to have sex. This means :

1. For married persons, if wife has gone some where for a few days and you are habitually needing a sex.

2. For widowers or divorced persons who have no alternative except to use hands for satisfying the biological requirement whenever it becomes intense.

3. For unmarried males, if they feel extremely aroused to see big boobed girls or ladies, or even small-boobed semi-exposed girls or ladies, or their undergarments.

But in every case, one has to be judicious enough to use your God-gifted tool with a frequency such as to enjoy equally well every time. And this can be possible only if you give a proper interval which may vary from 1 hour to 1 week depending upon once sensitivity and control to ones horny feelings. The best advice would be that whenever you feel your masturbation to be more labour-intensive (with the release of lesser amount and thinner density of semen) as compared to your just previous course of masturbation, you must understand that you have gone for it more quickly. Accordingly, you can yourself decide about the minimum gap you should observe between two courses of masturbation, so that you can remain healthy and equally justify during next course, as also during actual sex with a female partner without any apparent loss of energy & potency.

for those who didnt understand telugu is the translated version of the above answer.

Gauthi told,"I talked to doctors like samaram (a famous sexalogist in Andhra Pradesh) about masturbation in various TV channels like TV5 and Mahaa TV in live. They told that there is no harm because of masturbation how much we did and how many times we did. there wont be any problems in future also. so friends u need not bother about that and please dont give wrong suggestions if u dont know.
     Dr.Samaram told that the more masturbation we did  and the more ejaculation we get the more good we have. its lucky to do that even."
its all his version guys ...

Do as many times as your body allows you.
Too much of anything is bad, try to keep it controlled if you want to enjoy  the masturbation session.  Like 3/4 times a week, take time, go slow and enjoy the act.

Dear Gautham,

You may masturbate as many times you like. Wonder from where people fix this arbitrary number of 2 - 3 times a week! Thats ridiculous.

Adoloscents masturbate daily or twice / day and thats perfectly normal. You may do more.

The issue is not how many times you do it but it is does it affect your work. If it does then its of concern else you are gifted as compared to the 2 - 3 times / week gang thats it.

In case you plan to have a baby, you must not have sex / masturbation on a daily basis coz the sperm count goes dowm. Alternate day metod works best.

Complications attributed here like weakness and ohher bla bla are sheer figments of respective persons imagination!

Hey Gautam adv nd dis adv of mastrubation.
1. Repeated mastrubation leads to low back pain.
2. Loss of hair.
3 Inability to concentrate on your subject.
4. Will feel tired after mastrubation.
5. Will develope acne ahen u stop for some days.
6. your semen viscosity nd sperm production will be reduced.
Advantage is
1. U will develope some stamina while having intercourse.
2. U will relexed.
So try to avoid shagging daily and try to alternate days. Have a happy days. Do as per Anjali aunty said.

I do not think there is any hard and fast rule for frequency of masturbation (applies to both males and females). Do it whenever you feel otherwise you will remain tensed-up - that's bad for health.
