Most men enjoy masturbation, and for a good reason. It’s healthy, releases feel-good hormones, and breeds self-confidence; but how much masturbation is too much? Is there such a thing? While there is no set-in-stone number that equals too much, it can be a problem if it affects your daily life. Here are three masturbation side effects men experience if they take self-love too far.

#1: Your Job and Relationships Suffer

This is the hallmark of masturbation side effects. When self-gratification goes too far, it can get in the way of a man’s social life, professional life, and yes, sex life. This is both psychological and physical. The psychological relates to stimuli. As men pleasure themselves more and more, the material they use for inspiration also must accelerate. This material can make the real thing less attractive. Physically, men know exactly what to do when they give themselves a handy. Again, as frequency increases, so does things like alternate movements, tightness of the hand grip, and the addition of adult aids.

Here are a few situations that signal you need to put down the penis:

– You take a sick day from work to stay home and masturbate.

– You blow off friends or don’t make plans so you can stay in for a marathon masturbation session.

– You’re late to a meeting because you decided to stroke it in the men’s bathroom.

– You don’t want to have sex with your partner.

– Sex with your partner is less satisfying when you have it.

#2: Hurts So Good…Not Really

As with any activity, the more you do it, the higher the risk you can hurt yourself. As discussed above, as frequency increases, things must get more intense in some way to meet a man’s ever-growing needs. Injuries can be short-term, long-term, or permanent. If you are noticing any of the following, take heed:

– Skin chafing

– Tears in the skin

– Redness

– Soreness that radiates throughout the penis

– Constant “ache”

– Friction rash

– Penile fracture

– Penis scar tissue

– Peyronie’s disease

– Extreme loss of sensation

– Erectile dysfunction

#3: Boner Brain

When it gets out of hand, masturbation is always on the brain. You wake up and masturbate in the shower. While commuting to work, you’re caught up in a particular scene from an adult film. By lunch, the urge is strong, so you give yourself a hand in your car, the men’s bathroom, or even clandestinely in your office. Finally, you get home and immediately go online to find something that excites you and spend the night in with some take out and your hand.

How to Deal

Remember, there is nothing wrong or shameful about self-gratification. However, when masturbation becomes detrimental to your life, it becomes an addiction, and you must deal with it like any other addiction. Thankfully, there are a few ways to reverse these masturbation side effects and get back to a healthy and beneficial relationship with your penis.

There are a few ways to “reset to factory settings.” Go cold turkey and stop all masturbation for a specific amount of time. Get rid of all the material you use and block websites on all your devices. If cold turkey is too dramatic, adopt new behaviors that set reasonable limits. For instance, allow yourself to masturbate only once each day or remove all outside stimuli and rely solely on your imagination. As with any plan, adjust when and where needed.

Post-masturbation Penis Care

It’s likely that if you are masturbating a lot, your Johnson is feeling the after-effects. Use a specially formulated penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to heal and restore the overworked skin. It’s calming and promotes elasticity, which makes skin stronger and more flexible. Also, it’s a great way to reintroduce yourself to your penis with a daily non-sensual massage. You’ll both look forward to this new addition to your regimen.
