There are actually some health benefits to masturbation. Many times we forget that sexual health is a component of overall health. My sister, who was a secondary virgin and awaiting Mr. Right, went through a phase where she was passing out several times a week. When she went to the doctor the first thing he asked her was "When is the last time you had sex?" This is an extreme example but it shows how the buildup of sexual tension can physically affect a person. Here are some other benefits:
-In masturbating, a person learns how they like to be touched and can express this to a partner for more pleasurable sex
-It's safer than sex with another person in that you don't have to worry about pregnancy or an STD
-For women, masturbation eases PMS and menstrual cramps
-Masturbation causes muscle relaxation and an overall calming affect afterwards. The release of endorphins causes feelings of physical and mental well-being so it also reduces stress.
-Masturbation enhances self-esteem
-It helps you fall asleep

Here are some disadvantages to masturbating:
-It can interfere with a relationship if you enjoy it so much that you forego sex with a partner to masturbate instead
-Frequent rigorous masturbation without lubrication can cause scratches or cuts
-Anxiety and guilt over masturbation can lead to unhealthy opinions of sex and, ultimately, sexual disfunction
-Although it is very rare, some people have been known to become addicted to masturbating. However, masturbating up to several times a day is considered normal, especially for males.
I hope this information is helpful.

I don know whether it affects height but my self a live example for experiencing hairfall and memory loss. Iam 22 now and ya i used to mastrubate regularly but now just twice or thrice a month. I did my own research on this stuff and yes hairfall and memory loss are the worst symptoms you would be facing if your regular. One more point that i found through my research was that our sperm is a complex of certain vitamins like A and B vitamin groups mostly. It also carries protein that builds tissues and bones. So my honest opinion about mastrubation is try to avoid to the max..but if your an addict start taking vitamin capsules to build your vitamins back to normal.Hope it helps a lot of people. Its a personal life experience Smile

Sorry no..
Masturbation in men causes and increase of production of testosterone. If started during puberty it stands a chance of increasing height and muscle mass as well as hair growth, which may or may not desirable. Studies being conducted on ejaculation and brain function point towards enhance memory and lingual ability. I have seen no credible information that suggests that masturbation can impede memory unless it is done to the point of physical exhaustion, even then normal brain function returns with rest. Neither Masturbation or ejaculation has any direct impact on growth hormones, they are not emitted as a part of semen. The Proteins expelled when a man ejaculates are unable to be used by the body, they are created in the testes to nourish sperm and their only purpose involves being shot out of the body. Many religions discourage masturbation, only Roman Catholicism forbids it. At least two religions I know of ritualized masturbation. The AMA recommends men masturbate daily to maintain healthy reproductive function and help fight escalated risks of prostate cancer.

To All,
I masturbate regularly (age 79y). Enjoy every moment. All young boys (and girls) should be told at an early age it is fine to do so (you won't go blind). In fact I think From the age of ten we should encourage masturbation for children. Under supervision and correct instruction. No demonstration physically. No touching the child by demonstrater. Strickly healthy instruction.

@ Festid, you need first all acknowledge that masturbation is sin, then confess to God, He will forgive and ask Him for the grace to overcome it. Make up ur mind to glorify God in your body. Remember, your body is the temple to the Holy Ghost who is you, you are no longer your own, you are bought with a price. Also, created man and woman so that man will not be alone (including sexually) so sex should be between a man and woman, therefore any type of sex alone is against the will of God.

Frequent masturbation and ejaculation stimulate acetylcholine/parasympathetic nervous functions. Excessive stimulation can result in over production of sex hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin.

Abundant and unusually large amount of these hormones and neurotransmitters can cause the brain and adrenal glands to perform excessive dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion and turn the brain and body functions to be extremely sympathetic. In other words, there is a big change of body chemistry when one excessively masturbates.

Note: Masturbation is a healthy sexual behavior. Like other behaviors, when over practiced or addicted it can lead to both psychological and physiological imbalances.

The side effects of such changes to the body include:
Fatigue. Feeling tired all the time
Lower back pain
Stress / Anxiety
Thinning hair / Hair Loss
Soft / Weak Erection
Premature Ejaculation
Eye floaters or fuzzy vision
Groin / Testicular Pain
Pain or cramp in the pelvic cavity or/and tail bone

How much is too much masturbation (and sex for that matter)? That depends but it's suggested men keep their ejaculation frequency down to 2-3 times a week. However, sexual activity can be experienced more often if men learn how to orgasm without ejaculation. Doing so can actually store bioenergy into your system and make your penis firmer, your erections last longer, and your ejaculate volume bigger.

Over masturbation participants experience problems with concentration and memory. This is a dangerous side effect of over masturbation and signals that the brain is being over drained of acetycholine. Over masturbation drains motor neurons and neuro-muscular endings of acetycholine, which is eventually replaced. Over masturbation can lead to absentmindedness, memory loss, lack of concentration, and eye floaters. To fight these symptoms, the chemical levels in your body needs to be balanced.

Notice a pattern yet? The plethora of problems associated with over masturbation come from the fact that your body is drained of important nutrients and hormones from over masturbation.
