The Untold Dangers Of Masturbation
Masturbation is not a subject that is discussed in daylight but, many people indulge in it privately and it is therefore important to know the dangers of masturbation as well as its negative and positive effects on your health. TUNDE OGUNTOLA reports.
Masturbation is a term used to refer to the self-stimulation of genital organs, by both men and women, in most cases, to the point of getting an orgasm. According to health experts, “forty per cent of adolescent girls, and between sixty and ninety per cent of boys in this age group take part in regular masturbation.”
For most youngsters, masturbation provides them with the chance to explore sexually in private, before they can make the decision to engage in sexual activities with other people. Given the fact that the world is currently filled with all kinds of diseases and conditions, masturbation is considered to be the safest type of sex, when it comes to helping prevent the transmission of diseases, such as HIV.
Consequently, abusive masturbation can harm the male and female body in the following ways: infection, mood swings and stress, fatigue, insomnia and sleep disturbance, weak or soft erections, premature ejaculations that is sometimes accompanies by excessive precum, fuzzy vision or eye floaters, performance anxiety attacks, discomfort or pain in the lower back, thinning hair, insulin resistance and suppressed immunity, testicular pain and pain in the groin.
Even though masturbation may at times be recommended by doctors to assist patients with their sexual lives, it also poses some dangers. A new study has shown that men who masturbate on a frequent basis are at risk of developing prostate cancer.
A new study established that men who masturbated a lot in their early twenties, had a thirty-four per cent chance of developing prostate cancer by the time they got to their sixties.
For women, it has been noted that frequent masturbation may lead to them not enjoying sexual sessions with their partners. Most women claim that the orgasms they derive from their own touch tend to be more intense as compared to those that they get from engaging in sex.
