    I have recently went to my doctor and asked is it okay to masturbate. She said it is perfectly normal and even healthy for a teen to masturbate. Then I told her about people on nofap she said some of the effect you realized is probably a simple placebo effect.
    I am just wondering what do u guys think about this?

    But you didn't talk to her about PMO addiction, did you? That's the thing people don't realize. We're not just a weird group of people who think super powers will come from not masturbating. We're a bunch of people who got addicted to porn and masturbation and are trying to recover. If you're not addicted to porn, then masturbation is perfectly healthy, and you probably can masturbate once a week without issue. But to a porn addict, masturbation can lead to urges to look at porn because of the chaser effect.

    how do you mean once a week is healthy to masturbate for a non addict? Where did you get this from? I think if somebody is not porn addict and single it is ok to masturbate more than that. Nobody ever said one is ok but not more.

    i dont consider myself a porn addict coz i can go two months without porn, but masturbating is getting alot out of mee.. n believe me is hard to stop... about what your doctor said that its healthy, thats "bulshit".. am also a medical student n i knw alot bout hormone n neurotransmitters n how they work.. beleive me masturbation is not healthy at all bcoz u trying to deceive your brain..i have this chronic lumbar osteochondrosis, whenever i stop masturbating, it goes away, n as soon as i return to my habit, it comes back n i feel it ryt away after d masturbation.. apart from back pain, it causes depression, weakness, sleeping disorders.. etc.. you may not encounter all of it but believe me som of it side effects will hit you sooner or later.. plus if you masturbate alot, you wont last long on sex n if its worse you may even lack pleasure in normal sex because d receptors on ur penis got use to ur hand or watever u masturbate with.. what am telling u is without salt or sugar added.. thats what am here to fight b4 it destroys me n my future family..

    well speak for yourself. I had no problem with masturbating for like 20 years.
    Always had good sex in relationships. I only masturbated when I was single. Sometimes every day, sometimes less. I had no back pain or any other problems. Last time I saw a doctor was at the age of 13. And I am 40 now. Maybe got simple cold every 3rd year for 1-2 days. I guess it is not bad, isnt it?
    But I started to be obsessed about porn, and that changed many things. This is when problems started. Nothing to do with masturbation. So dont try to make people feel bad about masturbation. What is next? That at the end to have sex is bad too if you do it every day? Obsession?
    You might be addicted to masturbation because of a wrong reason, but it doesnt mean everybody else is in your shoes. It is like an alcoholic and a person who likes to drink a glass of wine after dinner every day. Not the same, no?

    Here is what I understand about masturbation. It is fine, but in moderation.

    Once you become addicted it is a problem. Further more too much masturbation can cause you to lose sensitivity in your fella. Additionally, it is not uncommon for chronic masturbators to develop what is called a death grip. This is when you start to tighten your grip more and more because you cum more quickly that way. Once you have developed a death grip you're not likely to have an easy time feeling anything down there when you are having sex, which will make that much more difficult to get off when having sex.

    Keep in mind, however, that as a teenager you are starting to develop as far as sexuality is concerned. This is where masturbation is useful because it allows you to learn what feels good to you, which comes in handy when you are having sex with that special someone because you can help him or her learn how to pleasure you.

    However, based on my own experience, you need to know when to stop. I had little to no social life when I was in high school because I was home schooled, had few friends, and am a huge introvert. So it was easy for me to become addicted. After I got addicted to masturbation, I discovered porn and things escalated to an even worse problem because now I have two addictions (masturbation and porn). I should also add that my doctor encouraged me to masturbate because "it is natural" and "it is healthy". Yes it is natural and perhaps it was healthy but even something healthy can become unhealthy if you consume to much of it.

    hms74, I was just using "once a week" as an example. It is possible to get addicted to masturbation without using porn, so if that's the case I would recommend abstaining from masturbation as well.

    I agree with karegador. i m also not porn addict. i was addicted to masturbation with my own fantasies. like this i trained my brain to enjoy sex on fantasy bacause of that i felt no excitement in real sex. as well upper right side skin of my penis become more sensitive because i m left handed and res of my penis had no sensitivity. doctor says masturbatio is good for health. i agree then why most of people suffer from this habbit. why people r facing problems. if u practice good things regular u ll get better result same if u practice bad thing u ll get worst results. any means unnatural is harmful. masturbation leads u to world of fantasies then how could u feel the real. in shor excessive masturbation is not good for health. avoid it. enjoy real sex feel real.
