Advice: Masturbating all the Time


Curious, is there any evidence that masturbating All the time is bad/harmful? (question via Twitter)

My, this is a curious question. I’ll try to answer it in as many ways possible. Above all else, masturbation itself is not harmful. You will not go insane, grow hairy palms or develop out-of-control acne. Our collective anxiousness over masturbation is borne from years of anti-masturbation rhetoric intended to push people towards more reproductive sex acts. Like rape and incest.

Many people express anxiety over masturbation frequency. Am I doing it too much? How much is too much? If your life is impacted negatively by your masturbatory habits then you masturbate too much. If you cannot control your impulses and tend to stick you hand down your pants like a 5 year old at a dinner party then you masturbate too much. Other than that, even if you are squeezing one off at work, who cares? As long as you clean up after yourself, don’t get caught on camera and remember the cover sheet on the TPS report you’re golden.

The one possible physical effect of “over-masturbating” would be calloused genitals. This can be avoided by one of my favorite things: LUBE. All you have to do is cut down on skin to skin friction and no callous will form. One very misinformed, young, unqualified professor of mine tried to claim this could happen with vibrators. I wanted to throw a book at him. Friction develops callused body parts, not vibrations.

I have heard one rumor, rather unsubstantiated but ubiquitous:

I heard it from Fark.com. Can you confirm the veracity of their claims? Hit me up.

  1. Calloused genitals? What kind of furious brass knuckle wearing self play are YOU involved in?

    The question, while loaded, is ridiculous to begin with. Not only is “masturbating all the time” not possible, it is also obviously a problem if its happening “all the time”. Even drinking water, all the time, can be harmful.

    Masturbating is one of the most healthy things you can do for your mind and body, there are no physical negative side effects and even if you spent an entire day just masturbating, the worse you would experience is soreness.

    Masturbation promotes: reproductive health, less stress, sexual longetivity, mental clarity… etc.

    Anyways, thought I’d chime in since I’m a nosy bastard
    feel free to check out my blog, its pretty harsh, but you might like it.

  2. Isn’t the usual mantra something similar to ‘if it’s not interfering with your job, education, social life or relationships then it’s not a problem, if it is you might want to scale it back’?

    Anyway, it’s not masturbation that kills cats*, it’s me having too rough sex – http://factsandfriction.blogspot.com/2008/08/retrospective-afternoon-delight-that.html !

    Ok, so no actual cat was killed, but it really easily could have been!
