    Thanks in advance for your time, I hope this is the right section of the forum.

    Two days ago after about 6 weeks of no PMO, I masturbated 4 times in a row on fetish porn over a period of 12+ hours (I know...).
    The last masturbation session lasted about 5 hours and by the end I was soft for most of it except some bouts of excitement where I would masturbate vigorously (nothing extreme though, as in no pain as I was doing it) to try to "get it up" again for one last orgasm.

    The next day my penis shaft was very swollen and more on one side than the other (the side where the palm of my hand was holding the penis).
    The swelling has almost entirely subsided after 48 hours; however I remembered reading an article saying that over a lifetime one might lose an inch or so of erect size due to accumulated damage to the penis' soft tissue and started worrying that I've potentially done permanent damage to the soft tissue in my penis as a result of that long masturbation session.

    Has anyone experienced the same problem and is there anything to the idea that long enough masturbation to make the penis swell can cause permanent damage and loss of size and/or erection quality as a result?

    Hey buddy - I haven't done any research on the long term effects in truth, but I can definitely relate and add some guidance on this.

    I'm 31yrs old and have relapsed on several separate occasions recently - for me now 1-2hour P & Fap session is enough to cause swelling/pain the next day or two.

    It does always seem to go away after a couple of days, but I'm fairly confident that it's not a healthy thing to put your dick through. If this has only occurred once for you then I wouldn't worry too much, the body has strong healing powers.

    However... if this keeps happening then I would imagine over time it would have an impact (sensation + foreskin wrinkling etc) wise. Naturally I am also trying to stop myself from having this happen, and you should too ;-)

    That scary thing you read is called Peyronie's disease, and many articles give an ass poor description of it and how it comes to be. Trust me, you don't fit the Peyronie's cases as of now. You can get PD in 2 ways: literally breaking your penis where your tunic albuginea snaps and the inflammation could go into overdrive even after the wound has healed, resulting in scar tissue buildup surrounding the area, which results in a loss of length and stretch of the tissue. This is 'acute PD'.

    The other way of getting PD is genetic. Some people just have a genetic predisposition to start developing PD in the later stage of life. Most men with PD are over 40. Some young unfortunate men get it, but they then really did have shitty genes unfortunately. Since there is no way to judge whether you are a genetic variant, you would come into consideration for acute PD, buuuuutttt, a snapping of the tunica albuginea is a very disturbing and painful experience. You get immediate swelling, intense pain, deformity of the penis and you almost always hear a loud crack right when it snaps. If you only got swelling the next day as I read, you CAN'T have torn your tunica albuginea as that would invoke and IMMEDIATE response as your dick would otherwise die of toxicity due to lost blood dwelling around in your broken dick.

    So chill out, you sound fine. Swelling could be due to many many reasons, but it really doesn't sound like PD to me right now. You really could use some rest for your dick thoug hahha. A 5 hour long session is wild and it probably exhausted the tissues in your dick, but it did not break anything.

    It's mainly edema and some inflammation and it will go away. I would be more concerned about your head than your dick. 12 hours of a dopamine bath is definitely going to leave lasting repercussions on your brain, which won't heal nearly as fast as your dick.

    Go easy on yourself man.

    EDIT- just realised someone bumped this from 2018 and the OP isn't even here anymore. Oh well.
