Not a clickbait. Masturbation is not the best activitey to spend your time and energy. But let's face it..almost every male on the planet masturbates. We've come to realize that it has the potential to destroy our lives if we overdo it. If you are going to masturbate..there is a less damaging ways to do it. 1- once a week. Between each masturbation session (ejaculation) ..make sure there is a gap of time at least 7 days. Your testosterone gets to a peak level every seven days you don't ejaculate. If you ejaculate twice a week or more..you will feel drained..tired and lazy for a good couple of days. And I explained in other threads why this is. 2-don't edge. Just finish it. Edging is the worst thing you can do. It fucks with your fluids in the reproductive system and urinary system. You are Basically fucking with your pelvic muscle..making it weaker. You are opening it (come on baby we're gonna cum now....oh no just kidding). Now your pelvic muscle will open by itself..randomly..causing frequent urination. You will go to the toilet all the fucking time. Also ..edging causes hard friction on the penis..makes your Michael sore ..desensitized . Edging can cause prostate proplem if done for so long. This is only the physical harms ..not to mention how it affects your brain ..elevating dopamine levels for so long. Makes you numb to the constant touch of your hand..yes..ED. don't edge..just bust that nut and move on. 3- be gentle. Your dick is not made out of metal..it can't take any level of pressure and friction for any amount of time.stop "beating your meat". Don't use a tight grip. Don't do it super fast. Use a lube to reduce the friction .And after you finish..flush it with cool water on the penis. 4-don't watch porn. No need to explain the obvious. And finally.. it's better to not masturbate at all..You are basically fucking yourself for no reason. You don't need it.. you don't want it. You are just addicted to it and doing it out of habit.
