Chronic masturbation side effects
You might not give a second thought to your masturbation , that private habit that relieves tension, makes you forget about your worries and — no judgment — is a nice way to pass the afternoon. The messages we receive about this self-touch influences whether our masturbation shifts into a private activity or a secret, shameful one. If masturbation is normalized and named a private activity — like cleaning our bodies — we are less likely to develop unhealthy shame around this kind of self-touch. The good news, as Wagner says, is that taking time to understand your own erogenous zones is a healthy practice that can improve your sex life and sexual, make you a more balanced person, and allow you to freely explore your fetishes. The bad news? There can actually be some pretty serious risks to your physical and emotional health when it comes to masturbation, specifically if frequent masturbation may be turning into chronic or compulsive masturbation.
