Myths About Masturbation
There are a lot of common misconceptions about masturbation, though these misconceptions have been debunked many times. Most of the myths about masturbation don’t have any scientific evidence to show that it causes those effects. Some of those myths are,
- It causes blindnes
- It causes hairy palms
- Erectile dysfunction later in life
- Genital shrinkage
- Genital curvature
- Sperm count is low
- Mental illness
- Physical weakness
- Some couples also worry that their relationship will be unsatisfying if either one of them masturbates; this, too, is a myth.
Masturbation does not cause any of these things mentioned; they are myths that have been debunked over and over again. There haven’t been any actual cases of an individual getting blind after they’ve masturbated or someone with hairy palms because they wanted. These myths are not scientifically backed. It doesn’t cause low sperm count because the male body is constantly making new sperm cells, so they won’t run out. Even if they ejaculate once or several times per day, the semen will usually always contain sperm cells. Depending on the individual’s genetics and age, their sperm production cycle and sperm cell quality will vary. Certain things can cause infertility, but rest assured that healthy masturbation does not cause infertility.
Does Releasing Sperm Affect Muscle Growth?
There are some bad effects of masturbation, though it may not be scientifically proven that masturbation causes weight loss, but with age, men naturally lose muscle tone, even in the genital. Well, there you have it. Excessive masturbation might reduce muscle tone in your genitals. Remember that there is actually no scientific evidence that masturbation has any permanent effect on the size of your genitals. Masturbation does lead to an erection that increases the size of the genitals, but this is only temporary. The genitals will return to normal size after ejaculation. Genital size is mostly a result of genetic influences.
There are some bad effects of masturbation that aren’t talked about enough,
- The nervous system is affected the most
- Besides the heart, the digestive system, the urinary system, as well as the other systems are adversely affected, and consequently, the whole body becomes a museum of diseases with profound weakness
- Continuous headache and backache
- Dizziness and loss of memory
- Palpitation of the heart on the lightest exertion
- unable to perform any heavy physical or mental work
- The person dislikes any company and activities and rather likes to sit in seclusion and suffers from weakness.
How Can You Stop Masturbating?
Society actually ignores the fact that there are people out there trying to put an end to masturbation but can’t. They are struggling with this addiction and they still can’t find a way to quit.
Admitting You Have A Problem
This is the first step for anyone who’s addicted to something. It doesn’t have to be masturbation in this case. You should tell yourself the truth once you do it. You do it more often than it should be done. When you begin to get this guilty feeling, then you’re trying to tell yourself that you have a problem. Admitting to yourself isn’t much of a big step as most addicts know that they’re addicted but will still go on with their normal lifestyle. What steps do you take after you’ve told yourself “Look, I’ve got to quit this habit”?.
Most people feel the need to “wank” after they have seen indecent or nude pictures or videos. You should make yourself do something else rather than fall into that trap of masturbating. You should try and go for a walk once that thought kicks in. Get yourself busy with something that’ll take your mind off that thought for a while. No one said it was going to be easy, but you should definitely give it a try and monitor any changes.
Stay Around People More Often
Loneliness and isolation are other causes. There are things you can actually do while you’re lonely instead of wanking. You can play video games, watch educative movies with no nude scenes, and workout. If these few things still can’t keep you distracted, then you should stay around friends more often. Stay in public places more often and engage in one outdoor activity or another instead of staying indoors most of the time.
You should show yourself maximum affection and always do what’s right. Think about the opportunity you’ve missed while you’re wanking. If you don’t have a job and you’re addicted, then you’ve got a major problem. Some of these options might work in this case, as you’re mostly at home. You should consult a support group instead.
When it has gotten out of your control, you should invite professionals and people who have dealt with addiction to help you out. You should also invite either a therapist or a psychologist to help you. You shouldn’t keep it to yourself. If you really want to quit but cannot quit, you should seek help. There’s actually nothing to be ashamed of as most people you see every day also have the same problem but keep it to themselves.
