Master Your Domain: 10 Things Most Men Don’t Know About Masturbating

Thousands of years ago, masturbation, or the act of playing with your ding-dong until you jerk off, is considered as a mortal sin. Up to now, you can even hear your grandmother’s voice telling you how it can make you blind or decrease your sex drive or whatever crazy things. No disrespect intended but you should tell your grandma that it’s already the 21st  century where people are smart enough to not believe the “he said, she said” crap about masturbation.

The truth is masturbation for both men and women is a natural physical function, as natural as breathing or peeing or chewing your food. However, there is still a social stigma that lies at the thought of touching yourself down there. And despite being hundreds of years wiser and more open-minded, the act still gets a bad rap.

Which leads you to the next question – what masturbation myths are true, and which ones are false? Let’s find out.

Masturbation Causes Blindness.

ExpertsThis is a screaming false. Touching yourself down there won’t make you lose your eyesight. Experts believe that this worry stems out from the universal feeling of guilt that people feel about masturbating.

Again, this act is frowned upon by many conservative people who lived even before the airplane was invented. So, they’ll create stories, mostly hilarious, in order for the people to stop masturbating.

Unless you have a severe cause of glaucoma or you didn’t take care of your eyes when you were younger, then yes, you can go blind. But don’t pin the blame on masturbation. It is innocent of that charge.

Couples Don’t Need To Masturbate.

CouplesThis one is also false. Old beliefs will tell you that once you are married, you don’t have to masturbate anymore since sex is easily accessible.

What if you are assigned somewhere across the globe while your girl is back home? Paying someone to have sex with you is cheating, and even if it may be an option, you don’t want to catch any disease. In that case, masturbating is and will be your best friend.

The point is, people masturbate, regardless of whether they are single or in a relationship. Every person has different level of sexual desire, some may be unconventional, but these are all healthy and normal. Don’t feel bad when you masturbate instead of having sex with your partner. Doing the up and down motion with your own manhood while watching porn is not considered as cheating. Having someone do that for you apart from your girl – now that is cheating.

Too Much Masturbation Can Lead To Erectile Dysfunction.

Of course, this is also not true, so there’s nothing to be scared of at all.

Not being able to get it up may be due to certain factors, such as stress or existing medical conditions, but not because of masturbation. At this age, you should already know that.

The truth is you get used to a certain touch when you masturbate frequently. Once you get used to the sensation, it might be difficult for you to have an orgasm when you do it with an actual person. Of course it is different when your penis is sore and starts to bruise because of too much force or friction. Maybe you need to give it a rest for a few days, although it won’t lead to ED.

Masturbation Doesn’t Do A Body Good.

Again, can you hear your grandma’s voice echoing on your head? By now, you can hear her say you’ll have hairy palms or go insane or even die when you masturbate.

The truth is she is mistaken, and it’s probably just an old wives’ tale, because everything she says to you was most likely passed on by her grandmother’s grandma.

In reality, masturbation has a lot of health benefits. It reduces tension and stress, minimizes headaches, leads to better sleep, improves your concentration and increases your self-esteem. And believe it or not, playing with your guy once in a while can give you a more youthful appearance, too.

Only Adults Masturbate.

young kidThis one is also not true. Everyone masturbates and it is perfectly healthy at any age. Yes, even young kids touch themselves once in a while “out of curiosity,” and minus the orgasm, of course.

And if you’re not too convinced, there are even ultrasound images where you can see a child inside the womb is already masturbating. If you don’t believe it, then Google it for proof.

If you have younger kids, it is important to educate them about touching their sex organs. Tell them it is a normal part of sexual health and every human being will go through that. At the same time, stress the importance of doing it in private. You don’t want to see your 8-year old touching himself while he’s busy watching Spongebob Squarepants with his friends, right?

People Masturbate Only When They Are Alone.

AloneAnother myth. Remember myth number two where couples don’t masturbate? That myth will debunk this myth, because believe it or not, there is a thing called “mutual masturbation.”

This is where people masturbate together by including masturbation in their sexual repertoires.

This may be weird for many, including you perhaps, but there are couples who touch themselves both at the same time or simply enjoy watching each other masturbate. And if you are looking for a great way to have safe sex and prevent unwanted pregnancy, this will do. It may be unconventional but when it comes to sex and masturbation, anything is possible.

You Should Be Embarrassed When You Masturbate.

EmbarrassedWhoever said this deserves a firing squad, or maybe he or she is dead after all, because this statement is just plain stupid.

Here’s the truth: there’s nothing to be ashamed of when you touch yourself and actually enjoy it. Compare masturbation with Katy Perry who kissed a girl and she liked it – it’s okay to do it.

It is normal to feel that way given the negative information you get about the pleasure of touching yourself.

But remember, masturbation is perfectly normal and in fact, it is a normal part of sexual development. It may be embarrassing when you were in your teen years, but believe it or not, more than half of the boys in your school have done it – they just didn’t say it out loud.

In other words, if you feel the urge and you don’t want get any STDs by having sex with someone you don’t know just for “pleasure purposes,” then go ahead and do it. It will even make you feel good.

Masturbation Is Taboo.

sexualityApparently not, at least way, way back. Did you know that as far back as 4th millennium BC, the early Romans were open about their sexuality?

In fact, there are clay figurines that show women touching themselves while obviously enjoying the act – and the Romans didn’t even care. That’s because masturbation was a normal thing for them and something they weren’t ashamed of, either.

This went on until the early 1700’s, until the publication of a pamphlet, “Onania,” was issued by an unknown author that said masturbation is a “heinous sin of self-pollution.”

Okay, so maybe this pamphlet was the culprit. Since then, masturbation has been considered as a mortal sin and crazy myths about have emerged, most still carried over and believed by the naives until today. What a shame. No wonder the author wanted to remain anonymous.

There Is No Such Thing As Masturbating Too Much.

Yes, you can masturbate, that we know if true; however, you should learn to draw the line between what is normal and what is overdoing it when touching yourself.

night drinksAccording to the American Psychological Association, masturbation is “too much” when it starts to get in the way with your other daily activities.

So if you’d rather lock your door, watch porn and play with your guy than go to work or meet some friends for a regular Friday night drinks, then that’s something.

Or if masturbation already causes physical soreness, or emotional issues where you can’t think of anything else anymore but that, problems with your relationships or habituation issues – then there must be something wrong with you. No, you’re not crazy, but you need to stop and get back to your old, normal life. Don’t be scared. Only a few people masturbate “too much” and hopefully you’re not one of them.

Masturbation Has Nothing To Do With Your Sex Life.

Sex LifeDefinitely a false. Apparently, masturbation can help enhance your sexual experiences when you are actually doing it with a real person.

Believe it or not, masturbation allows you to explore your body and lets you find out what kind of stimulation you’ll need in order to get that big O.

At the same time, it helps you practice control, so you can prolong sex, and prevent yourself from jerking off too early, which can be useful since no guy would want to be labeled as “one minute man.”

Masturbation does help improve your sex life. But if you want to have the ultimate sexual experience, then try ProSoluton Pills. They give you bigger and harder erections, multiple orgasms and a dramatic increase in sex drive, minus the side effects.
