This question may not be important to every one esp. if you have not started masturbation or have just started This question is of trivial (not very important) nature if you do not masturbate frequently. However if you are very excited about sex and masturbation, you should bear in mind that masturbation is harmful. This question is quite controversial because many people including doctors say it is not harmful at all and as a matter of fact they say it is very healthy. But there are a lot of other people like 'hakims' and common people who say it is harmful. Knowing the point of views of both the people and being a person who has been affected by it, i can tell you that masturbation is harmful. However i do not want you to get scared of it. The harmful effects of masturbation are slow and spans on a long duration of time. Say if you are masturbating 2 times a day every day for two years, you will get yourself in trouble. Only then will you know that you got some problem because of masturbation. I have have mentioned in detail the effects of the over masturbation (or too much masturbation) in the left side of of the column. Bear in mind that i DO NOT support hakims if you have already got problems with masturbation and i believe the Doctors and the only valid person whome you should consult if you have this problem.
The harmful effects of masturbation include discharge of semen when u think about girl, reduction in penis erection size, softness of penis, tapering or shrinkage of penis in the base, pain in the legs and lower back and the worst of all premature ejaculation. With all these problems, you think that you are not enough for a woman and you become afraid of marriage.
Now there is a question, i for a long periond of time and am continuing it without any worries and one day i found out that i have all these problems ( that i leek semen when i think about girls and my penis has shrinked in the base and i ejaculate too early and can not control my self). In my case i was totally ignorant of the effects of masturbation, I found out when a friend of mine told me about this which scared me to death. He gave me a pumplit which said that ever masturbation will cause these problem and you will not be able to satisfy your wife and hence it will cause your marriage to break. At this i was scared to hill because i used to masturbate. When I went home and i thought about girl and thought about checking myself ( even though i was scared because i did have that problem what would i do?). I check the tip of my penis scarinly and i noticed that i was leaking. Then when i had looked at my penis, it had also shrunk in the base. Eventually everything that was their in the pamphlet came out true for me. So in my case it was ignorance and lake of sex education. Secondly since i never had any sexual activity with any one i did not know much about it. Hence i would the big culprit in this case is ignorance. You are doing something and you do not know its effect because either you just enjoy it and no one else infroms you about that. No one ever told me a single word about sex because our society ( Pakistan ) is not that much open. Parent never talk to their children about sex and as a result they become very easy victims of these kind of problems. So you better talk to your parents or try yourself to get some knowledge about it.
I have discussed the effects of masturbation in detail. This site is not fully organized yet and i will improve it from time to time. If you have any question, do email me at and i will try to answer to my best. Please mention your age when you correspond.
Now the harmful effects of masturbation are not just restricted to those physical problems that I have discussed. It also effects memory. It will also effect your social behavior because you would tend to be isolated. Eventually if you fall into all this problems there will be a new kind of world for you, which will not be a reality. Your world will be full of frustration. All you will think about is that you are not enough for a girl and you will never be married. I have been through all this and i do not want anyone to go in that direction. It is better to educate yourself about it.
Lastly if you masturbate do not think that you will get weak and lean ( slim). Infect you will look perfectly alright. You could get lean and weak if you have some other personnel problems that you are worried about. But bear in mind that masturbation alone will not make you lean and weak. And since you are in puberty which is the period you are full with energy, you will never notice these things. The best you can do is try to stop masturbation. This will be extremely good for you older life and for your life after marriage.
This question my not be important to every you if you have just attended puberty. But this is important in a sense that if you are aware of the facts you will be more caution in your future. Yes masturbation can be harmful to your health. Now when i say health, i am not discussing your health from the point of view that you will become meager and slim so that every one will guess you have masturbation. Infect you will appear pretty much ok. However you will be getting weak internally. It also has diverse effect your memory.
