    How about, excuse my language, a curved penis. Yes, my penis became ever so slightly curved to the right, because my right hand usually did all the work during my PMO days. The only other health issue that MIGHT have something to do with PMO is acne. And the only reason I say this is because my face has cleared up and has stayed clear since I've quit PMO. I believe it has something to do with the hormones associated with PMO, because they are a major component to acne.

    I hurt myself once when I was MOing and had a small scar on the top and everytime water comes on it, it really burns like hell and freaked out of course. I guess it's because I went so rough with lotion, anyway the scar recovered from its own without doing anything. I promised myself that day I will stop it but I didn't.
    That's why I'm here now :)
     
  4. Most of my health issues due to PMO were definitely mental. Does it counts? I never had the death schlick so no physical issues for me. But he. Cutting due to the guilt of PMOing. Glad I quit Lord, so glad I quit.

    I would said acne problem! Because in the past when I relapse to PMO I also noticed getting more pimple either on my face or my body, I think PMO also aggravate more acne as well! I also experience migrane when I relapse to PMO! The other physical symnptom I notice as well including nausea and feeling like I am about to faint! after I PMO or these feeling could come few days after for me!

    On the Psychological/Mental there are plenty as well!

    Do you see those physical side effects when you masturbate or even when you have sex or is purely when the experience of porn is present?

    It made my OCD worse. I do suffer from Agoraphobia, Paranoia and Anxiety when I'm masturbating daily. I have a history of being bipolar and severe insomnia.
     
  9. I Would say Weight Desist. I'm A Skinny Guy and I've Found That All My Energy is Lost When I PMO.I Eat Very Much,But Still I Can't Raise my Weight.PMO has Resisted My Metabolism to Slow Down.
    + Fever,Tonsils,and Back Pain,Also Happen to Me Frequently after every 25-27 days.And I Suffer From Them on The Next Day to My Relapse.
    And Anxiety,Loneliness,frustration are all kinds of Issues that I Guess Everyone on NOFap Faces.

    Hello Montymonk! Let me explained to you more in detail! Well in the past, on my typical relapse to PMO! I would started off with one video then another then another! After like 1 hours or so, I noticed my head would get strange headache when I watched porn, then I noticed my body and head is pulsating to the point when I masturbated and orgasmed! I would felt the strong headache and strong pulsating from my head, I think there is something going on inside my brain, which is now I can understand, too much dopamines over stimulation cause my brain to defend itself but decressing its receptors. After I relaspe, few hours later as I washes my face I noticed I would get pimples or I would noticed my acne on my face or some part of the body would aggratate more! Then at night before bedtime, I felt drain and nausea! Sometime I have difficult time sleeping because my head is hurt and pulsating so much! Those are the physical symptom I am having!

    And I noticed the next few days when I am feeling hungry or anxiety, I have a nausea feeling like I may faint, but I am not actually faint! The physical symptom alone for me is already a nightmare, not just mention the psychological and emotional symptoms that come with it as well!

    I'd definitely put anxiety and depression in there! Witnessed that personally with people around me, and I've seen horror stories/pictures of guys where the skin on the palm of there hand has completely peeled off from excessive masturbation - grim.

    You've seen pictures of guys where the skin on the palm of there hand has completely peeled off from excessive masturbation! But I thought you had to swing an axe all day to do that sort of damage. How can the thick palm skin be destroyed by soft shaft skin? It's sort of counter-intuitive isn't it? :confused:

    Lots of mental health issues and life management issues as a result of it; depression, confidence, anti-social, withdrawal issues.

    On the physical side, heavy deep lower back pains in the few days following PMO bouts, progression into longer periods of aching/pain. Anyone else experienced this back pain thing, have found others reporting such a thing online, I don't know the science behind it, do you? Apart from that general lethargy and pasty pallor issues.

    Pain in my lower back and testicals. Right when I decided to make a change I was fapping up to five times daily. Sometimes more if the first PMO was intense. Other than that, I'm just desensitized to the thought of actually having sex with a woman.

    I doubt PMO is directly linked to many physical health issues. I certainly imagine it would contribute to certain hormonal imbalances, but would not be core to the issue. Living a lazy lifestyle probably would damage your body more than PMO.

    Mental issues seem to be another case. However, from what i have seen many mental issues agitated via PMO seem linked to pre existing conditions. For example, a person with depressive tendencies is more likely to have issues surrounding PMO than someone who does not.

    Really it seems to be on a person to person basis. However, i think the issues shown through PMO are probably linked with other weaknesses.

    I'm not sure about that. I think there are a lot of health issues that can be indirectly traced back to PMO. Maybe the actual act of PMO itself doesn't cause excessive weight gain, for example, but sitting in front of a computer for an extra five hours on a regular basis can't be healthy -- either for your body or your eyes. Then there is the lack of sleep that can result from PMO binges and then trying to function the next day (I know this one from personal experience). You were probably right in saying that living a lazy lifestyle causes many of those health problems, but in my experience, PMO often leads to a lazy lifestyle.

    Other things I've had have been a decreased ability to concentrate, and sexual problems (delayed ejaculation in my case) with real people. The other thing I want to throw out there are issues that can result from having your sexual preferences warped by PMO. In the past I've put myself in some potentially dangerous situations because I was chasing a "high". Again, if you take away PMO and try to return to a normal sex drive, you can probably avoid that.

    My main non-sexual problems from excessive edging/PMO have been not getting enough sleep and having RSI-like problems with my arms.

    Not getting enough sleep resulted in not having energy during the day for pretty much anything, at work or at home. But there was always energy for some more PMO.
