Effects of Masturbating Every Day

There are more pluses than minuses when it comes to masturbating every day. Masturbating every day can be great for people as it helps reduce stress and make you feel good about yourself.

However, just like anything, once the activity starts to affect your relationships as well as your ability to work and function in daily life, that’s when masturbating everyday might be something you want to look out for and it would be recommended that you seek help. This could be that you prioritize masturbating over other events (friends, family, or work), or the fact that masturbating is causing a mental toll on you.

In addition, it is important to note that if you are masturbating every day, you should masturbate safely and correctly. The effects of masturbating every day with incorrect methods can possibly lead to a range of issues, such as irritation to the skin to ejaculation disorders.

You must be thinking, what about hair loss, blindness, hairy palms, and even shrinkage of your penis and other side effects that you can find on the internet or heard from one guy that heard from another. Fortunately, they are just myths and old wives’ tales that have been passed around for years. So even if you do masturbate everyday, that doesn’t mean your hair will start to thin, or your eyesight will go bad.


So to answer the question, what happens if you masturbate every day?
Pleasure, de-stressed, and confidence aside, nothing much will happen if you masturbate every day.

There is nothing wrong with masturbating on a regular basis, and many people do so as you can see from the survey. However, please keep in mind if masturbating every day is affecting you mentally, socially, and emotionally, that is when it can be an issue.

Aside from that, have fun and enjoy yourself and masturbate away!
