Too much of…

Too much of anything is bad at any age…I agree

I had this in my RSS feed this morning:-

I have read many articles about masturbating multiple times a day being harmful to your health, such as fatigue and memory loss setting in. I was wondering if these things could happen to a 17-year-old like myself? Or is this mainly for the men in their 20s and up? Should I cut down to prevent this from setting in on me? Is all of this truly harmful to my health? (Jeff)

This sounds interesting especially of a topic that I pondered myself when I was in my teens (ok, I admit that there was less pondering than pounding in my teens but I did ponder you know, sometimes). Anyway, I read on to see what the “advice” was:-

You’ve probably heard it a million times, and now you’ll hear it again: Masturbation is a healthy, “normal” method of sexual exploration. That being said, too much of anything is bad for you — at any age. Excessive masturbation — I’m talking numerous times a day, not a few times a week — can result in an overproduction of sex hormones and neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin.

This overproduction may result in fatigue, back pain, hair loss / hair thinning, memory loss, fuzzy vision, weak erection and testicular pain. Over masturbation can also lead to sexual problems in men of any age, including impotence or erectile dysfunction.

So, how much is too much? It varies from man to man, but most physicians recommend that men don’t masturbate more than three times a week. If you masturbate once or twice a day, however, there is no need to sound the alarm. These side effects usually occur in men who compulsively masturbate throughout the day, every day (Donald Zimmer).

Fuzzy vision you say?

Ha, this reminds of an incident when I was studying Law. There was this guy in the class who always sit right in front and he does not wear any spectacles. One fine day, he wore spectacles and this caught the attention of the lecturer who remarked on the spectacles.

The lecturer said “Hei, you are wearing spec? I guess you had too much of masturbation ah?” to everyone’s laughter but the thing was, all those guys (and some girls) who was wearing specs started to look nervous (for obvious reasons). And this did not escape of the attention of the lecturer. He said “Now the specky guys are feeling uncomfortable” to another round of laughter from the class.

Too much of anything is indeed bad at any age.
