    On the internet you can find many contradicting opinions about masturbation

    Masturbation lowers your testosterone levels making you less of a man
    Masturbating and watching porn overloads your brain with dopamine, your brain responds by lowering the amount of dopamine receptors in it making everyday life generally shitty
    When your masturbate you go too hard and fast which stops you from being able to come inside your girlfriend which makes her feel inadequate straining your relationship
    Masturbating removes zinc from your body which increases your risk of acne
    Masturbation is a sin against your own body and you will burn in hell for it
    Masturbation removes toxins from your balls lowering your risk of testicular cancer
    Masturbation is normal, harmless and good for your mental health
    Masturbation is only harmful if you neglect your work, studies or social life for it
    Masturbation is a healthy alternative for sex when you're single

    If you want to shitpost then ask this question yourself in the EOF

    Overindulgence in anything becomes harmful. I think this ties into sex addictions.

    I mean yeah, perfectly normal. But some people can’t control themselves and end up with lifelong problems. When you get caught stroking by your folks, normal. When you get caught by a co-worker while at your desk... not so much.

    Masturbating is normal and healthy. Do not read the religious people stating otherwise ever again.

    Over doing it is harmful and can often be a problem. Otherwise regular masturbation actually has several health benefits and is completely natural.
    Chances are they still actually do masturbate and are lying when they say they don't. If not, that could explain the over aggressive and repress nature of most religions. People who don't masturbate regularly tend to become far more aggressive and stress out easily due to their repression. Simply put, people need to have a release, be it sex or masturbation, they need that release to be a healthy and functioning person.

    This is too much information, even for me. A bit less explicit would be better. Think of the kids, please.

    I'm more curious how the women respond in this thread. But I don't think anyone was ready for this or can handle it maturely. :unsure:

    It makes your hands hairy, and you slowly become deaf over time.

    Scar tissue from overmasturbation and curved D*ck is possible. You can probably tell which hand you do it with by the curvature.

    Masturbation is as normal as it should be, damn, even animals (monkeys) do it, in our country there's a common phrase that says that "Pelarsela como un mono" aka "Fap like a monkey"
    Spain guys will confirm.
