But sometimes excessive masturbation may be harmful and can affect your sexual life.

Below are some complications of masturbation and how to QUIT.

According to the best sexologist in Jaipur Dr. Chirag Bhandari, a person who masturbates more than 21 times a month can then face some side effects of masturbation which may include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Performance Dissatisfaction
  • Reduced desire, and
  • Premature ejaculation

Masturbation can be healthy but overdoing it or being addictive can be harmful.

The dependence on self-stimulation can cause guilt and can start affecting them psychologically.

These four effective ways can help to overcome masturbation addiction:

  1. Avoiding pornography: Exposure to pornography may trigger the desire to masturbate. If a person can place a barrier between themselves and pornography, it can help them break the habit.
  2. Surrounding yourself with people: Some people may masturbate because they feel lonely or have nothing else to fill their time with. Spending less time alone reduces the opportunities to masturbate.
  1. Developing hobbies: The excitement in some hobbies like playing videos games can make you get rid of the desire to masturbate.
  2. Going for a walk, and talking to people you can trust: Having a great time with friends to discuss issues and have fun can also help in stopping masturbation.

Finally, the urge to masturbate is natural especially in adolescence as it signifies interest in sex before embarking on adult sexual relationships.
