I'd like to know what should be the appropriate time gap that ejaculation should be carried out either explicitly or forcefully(by self). Also if done everyday can it affect our body severely? Please do comment. Also how to avoid addiction?

Dear Jam,

You have basically asked all the questions men have about masturbation.

First the simple answers

There is no prescribed or recommended ideal frequency for ejaculation. So you don’t have to do it because that’s what the doctor ordered. Masturbating everyday will not affect your body – neither severely nor even lightly. And about how to avoid addiction the simplest answer is be sensible about it.

BTW Your use the words "explicit" and "forceful" in your question. You may probably have not meant it, but nothing has to be "forceful" or for that matter "explicit" about masturbation. I would personally recommend doing it gently and in private.

Now to the detailed reply

Boys get their hormones (testosterone, mainly) around the age of 15-16 though some are capable of having sex much earlier than that. I have seen a cases in London where 11 and 12 years old boys have fathered children !

In conservative cultures such as ours, wherein having sex prior to marriage is unacceptable to the society, a vast majority of adolescent boys have no other way to calm their hormones except masturbation and enjoy the temporary relief that it offers. Sexual intercourse, by the way, does not offer any more "lasting relief"!.

Masturbation and guilt

The worst thing is to masturbate and feel guilty. Associating guilt with masturbation is quite an easy thing to do, quite often you don't even need your priest to do the association. I know of friends of all faiths who would not masturbate on the day they were to get their exam result or the day India Pakistan played an ODI. That would quite easily cause the results to go all wrong! So if there is a religious sanction against it, it makes it all the more worse.

Several religions, especially the semitc faiths (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) condemn masturbation in no uncertain terms. I am told there are quotations in their holy books that condemn masturbation as a sin. Now that is something that i cannot argue against with my humble non-divine logic, so the conversation ends right here. I am old enough to accept and respect any belief, however different it is to mine, so no disrespect. For those who are more interested in physiology over theology, please continue reading.

Then should you masturbate at all ?

The answer to that is extremely simple, you should masturbate regularly to avoid having wet dreams. Obviously for practical reasons of avoiding mid-night embarrassments!

Testosterone the male hormone is released from your testes every day. Apart from its sexual functions it also has a role in other metabolic functions to keep your body healthy so you should not wish away testosterone. On the sexual front it gives you the urge to have sex, the physical ability i.e. erection and at a cellular level, the production of sperms and other secretions needed for "productive" sex. So if you are not sexually active the various glandular secretions from what are called as accessory sex organs such as the prostrate or the seminal vesicles accumulate. It may be interesting for you to note that only 10% of ejaculated semen is sperm. The remaining 90% odd are secretions from various other glands such as the prostrate, seminal vesicles and other glands that produce the mucus which keeps the sperm healthy and nourished. It is mainly the accumulation of these secretions that create some sort of an irritation in the internal system which in some ways triggers a need for sex.

If you cannot have real sex then masturbation is medically and socially a well recommended option. It is amazing how good and relaxed you feel at the end of an ejaculation provided of course you have not conditioned yourself to any guilt feeling with masturbation. .

From a medical perspective it wouldn't harm your body at all if you chose not to masturbate. But I am not sure you will enjoy getting on with your daily routine with so much of sexual feeling.

Addiction to Sex

In terms of being addicted to sex it is not as common a problem as you seem to fear. Well publicized cases of sexual addiction be it Tiger woods’ or Charlie Sheen make up a minuscule proportion of the general population. Most of the questions I am asked refer to the frequency of 2 to 3 times a week and I don’t see that as a problem even if it is something you do every day. You eat three times a day. Surely you can’t worry about being addicted to eating. Why should you call masturbating once a day a sign of addiction ? Of course I have also heard from patients, middle aged men who need to masturbate five times a day. Something which affected his day to day work - now that is addiction.

I don’t think a doctor can put a figure where normalcy ends and addiction begins. If it is unnatural, if it is affecting your day to day life and work, then you have a problem.

Hi,

Masturbation should be done only when one is sexually excited. There is no rule to carry out ejaculation at a certain interval. The human body has its own way, through night falls, of replacing the old sperms/semen with new ones.

Doing it everyday is not harmful, just that should not be overdone and should be done only when sufficiently excited. It should be done only when you have a strong urge to release your sexual tension and sexual stress, then ejaculation through an orgasm would be highly satisfying.

Self control is the only way to avoid addiction.

Masturbation is a great way to lessen tension in your body. It's a very safe way to have an orgasm. And it's probably the best way to learn about how your body likes to be loved. But masturbation, like most things, takes practice. And the only way to learn about your own sexual response is to try it.

Its been 17 years since you doing masturbation and there is nothing unusual as many of us start doing masturbation at the age 14 or 15. Even in my case the same, since the age of 15 I have started masturbation and now I am 32 years old and married since 2 years. I have 1 year old kid and he is healthy and fine.

What I want to prove or convey to you with above my statement is, its all how you strong mentally and keep yourself healthy. There is no harm doing masturbation everyday but make sure you don't think much about it after doing and feel guilty. Keep yourself busy to avoid access of masturbation otherwise daily once or some time twice is fine I say.

So don't worry , since you are getting married soon you better stop doing masturbation till you get married and in your first night you can enjoy good sex.

Hope you this will help you.

I agree with you Ms. Suma Gabriel and I really appreciate the way you take care of your boys by making each of them masturbate twice a day. In my opinion, everyone should include masturbation in their daily routine as daily masturbation proves to be very useful in relieving tension and stress.
