masturbation

Self-stimulation of the genitals, with sexual fantasizing, in order to reach orgasm. Repetitive movement of the skin of the penis or gentle massage of the clitoris is the usual method. Over 90% of males and 75% of females are believed to masturbate at one time or another. Kinsey found that the frequency varied from three or four times a week in adolescence to once or twice a week in adult life. Urologists have long been aware that male masturbation can be beneficial but have refrained from mentioning it. Recent research has, however, brought the matter out into the open by showing that frequent male masturbation between the ages of about 20 and 50 substantially reduces the risk of prostate cancer. An equal frequency of orgasm by sexual intercourse does not, apparently, provide the same advantage.

Q. Im a 29 yr old male that has pain after masturbation seems like the longer i go without the better I feel? Should I not masturbate at all? I have had 2 urethral scricture surguries and my doctor he seen no reason for the pain. I feel less of a man because I want to have a healthy sexual relationship with my partner. Should I quit for a long period of time like 6 months and see if the condition will go away? Do you think I may have imflamation or cause damage to urethra from masturbation? Thanks for your time

A. Hi! My guess would be that the pain you are feeling is being caused by scar tissue that has built up from the surgeries that you've had and when you ejaculate that tissue is being forced to stretch in order to allow the ejaculate to pass through the urethra.My ex Husband had something similar after his vascectomy.
