Masturbation is the manual erotic stimulation of the genitals or other erogenous regions, often to orgasm, either by oneself or a partner.


A number of reasons account for the practise of masturbation, some of them are:

  • Risk of STD: there is a reduced risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections. This is the major reason people masturbate, especially singles. 

  • Ignorance: some persons are unaware of the dangers or even the benefits, they just felt like imitating what they’ve seen in porn videos, or what a friend had told them is right. 

  • Depression: Frustrated and depressed individuals may resort to masturbation. 


While people say it is morally wrong, we cannot fail to identify the many benefits which research has attributed to masturbation; some of them will surprise you. 

  1. Stress relief: masturbation quickens the body to sleep and as well stimulates the production of hormones that aid rest. 

  2. Help Blood Vessels: Tabriz Medical University identified in their 2008 research that, ejaculating through masturbation can reduce swollen nasal blood vessel which makes for normal breathing. 

  3. Prostrate Cancer: Research proves that men who masturbate frequently stand lower risks of prostrate cancer. 

  4. Mood Booster: Masturbation boosts the mood of the individual through the release of dopamine. 

  5. Better Sleep: Studies also show that masturbating make people to sleep faster and better. 


This is where we stand to make choice, having seen the supposed benefits of the action, weighing the dangers that are associated with it, is as much necessary. Let’s get to it:

  1. Addiction: frequent masturbation results in an addiction and this is as dangerous as any other addiction like  drugs. 

  2. Erectile dysfunction: many of such cases has been identified with continuous masturbation

  3. Neurological problems: masturbation has been proved to have adverse effects on the brain and other related organs. 

  4. Hair loss: chronic masturbators tend to loose their hair, though there is no much studies on this. 

  5. Premature ejaculation: over stimulation of the penile nerve reduces control over ejaculation in time. 

  6. Drowsiness: when Dopamine is released in excess in the brain, the individual is drowsy. 

  7. Sexual inactivity: Chronic masturbators end up having a bad sex life, they’ve been overwhelmed with self-stimulation and may not appreciate the touch of a partner. This has broken many relationships and as well ruined marriages.

It is a sacred cow for science to weigh the pros and cons of an act. Well all thanks to the inquisitive nature of it. What is abhorring has its own advantages too, which should not be.
An act of transcending into an erotic realm by stimulating oneself to reach orgasm is in all sense of it absurd. It's no abomination to have sexual urge, but there are laid down principles to overcome it in the Holy Book.
Masturbation makes you objectify yourself and gives you an erroneous concept of sexuality.

*. Seminal fluid that gets released on masturbation contains proteins that are needed for many metabolic activities and cell formations. Proteins are the building blocks of our body; ejaculation often will create you to be lean and distracts your metabolism of muscle building.
*. Ethically masturbation is wrong; you think of X/Y and do sex of your own. This hinders your values and respect on others. May be you are good in all other regard but will end up in a great problem if not concerned to stop this habit.
*. Masturbation wastes your time and makes you useless.
*. The pleasure of masturbation never lasts for a long time.
*. Masturbation creates more problems as you lose your memory and thought provoking ability.
*. Masturbation is not the end for your desire; you may be fooled by your own practice. It will never give you a solution or a satisfaction but seems that it gives.
*. It is not needed in any way to your sexual life that it has to be practiced without fail.
