How often is it safe to masturbate?

Hi. I'm 19 years old and I'm here to ask a question that I've always had in my head. I've been masturbating since 14 and used to do it almost everyday. Since two years I've reduced to 2-3 times a week. Now I want to know if it is safe to masturbate once or max twice in a week. I'd appreciate it if you could help me with this concern and help me. Thank you.

Between March and May 2009, the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behaviour (NSSHB) from Indiana University collected data from 5,865 Americans between 14 and 94 years old. The maximum frequency the researchers asked about for solo masturbation for men was “four or more times per week."


You are a single 19-year old young man and you are good to go even if you masturbate every day. Masturbation itself, regardless of frequency, is very normal as long as it does not cut into your work or relationship time (e.g. in the case of compulsive masturbation).

I masturbate every morning for 15 minutes and every night for 2 hours! Is it safe to masturbate twice a day? Now I've reduced it to 7 minutes in the morning and 7 minutes before I fall asleep! When I sleep naked I wake up to me masturbating! Should I be worried?

Both abortion pills, mifepristone and misoprostol, are usually used in order to terminate a pregnancy. Mifepristone causes the embryo to detach from the uterus thereby cutting off essential nutrients and oxygen carried by the blood. Misoprostol is put in the vagina and triggers the evacuation of the embryo remnants through the vagina. This often appears as a heavy period. How to use the pills. Pills are used orally by placing them under the tongue till they dissolve and also placed in the vagina near the opening of the cervix. This medication is normally administered with help of a tampon and if you are comfortable using tampons you can insert this medication yourself. Common side effects Common side effects include abdominal pain, cramping, bleeding and spotting for up to 1 week after using the abortion pill.

You have obvious a feeling for men or you suffer from impotency !

I am sure Jesus was either gay (hanging out with all those disciples) or he masturbated regularly.

Yo bro. Well done for being brave and asking a question which many people are too scared to. Do it as often as you like, but as the wise people say in their comments don´t let it control you or take precedence over your relationship. It is no different to the runners who run for their endorphine shot.Its a great feeling and release. Enjoy the training and learn endurance - this will please your partner hugely - remember - Ladies come first.

excellent.....it also means you are in good health

Posted by: fap master | 2015/08/07

I have fap usually 1-2 times a day. Ain't nothing wrong with it, its great. My girlfriend only has sex with me about 3 to 4 times a week, so I use masturbation to fill in the rest ;) On a side note, make sure you don't form the iron grip syndrome, where you masterbait with a tight grip, it will make sex less pleasurable since pussy ain't nearly as tight (u gotta go 4 that ass though, much better). Masturbate with a looser grip

at the ripe old age of 89 I mastubate nearly every morning before I take a pee. Now let me tell you, masturbating is very healthy for your sex life. My wife at the age of 75 masturbates as well...

Masturbating a lot became a problem for me when they kicked me out of the Pick n Pay...

Hey. I have to differ from the people who have said the 5cent worth. I believe to much leads to some bad habits. Take time to relax and rest in between. They saying says: 'not everything that's good for you should be enjoyed to much'. There is also a matter of why do you do it everyday? Because your in the mood? Are you fantasizing about someone you fear of dating? Is it do run from something? I used to masturbate more when I felt sad and stressed, but it didn't help deal with the situation. Then I did it more when I watched porn, even worse I started to develop bad habits. All I wanted to do was ejaculate and the faster the better. When I started having sex I had to retrain my body to come down and relax as I now had someone else to think of.

You can masturbate as much as you like as it keeps you healthy and you feel relaxed after you have climaxed. How frequently people masturbate differs from person to person.Your body will tell you when it is enough. Happy masturbating my friend!!
