    Frequent masturbation and ejaculation (more than 4 times a week) stimulate acetylcholine/parasympathetic nervous functions excessively, resulting in the over production of sex hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin. Abundant and unusually amount of these hormones and neurotransmitters can cause the brain and adrenal glands to perform excessive dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion and turn the brain and body functions to be extremely sympathetic. In other words, there is a big change of body chemistry when one excessively pratices masturbation.


    Note: Masturbation is a healthy sexual behavior. Like other behaviors, when over practiced or addicted it can lead to both psychological and physiological imbalances.

    The side effects of such changes to the body include:

    Fatigue. Feeling tired all the time

    Lower back pain

    Stress / Anxiety

    Thinning hair / Hair Loss

    Soft / Weak Erection

    Premature Ejaculation

    Eye floaters or fuzzy vision

    Groin / Testicular Pain

    Pain or cramp in the pelvic cavity or/and tail bone

    If above symptoms are experienced, you need to restore the balance of brain's acetylcholine / parasympathetic ratio, reduces the level of sex hormones in the body, and sedates sympathetic nervous function, or the symptoms would become worse.

    Negatives Of Masturbation

    Surprisingly little research attention has been paid to the specific effects of masturbation. The history of masturbation is littered with moral condemnation and scientific inaccuracies regarding its negative effects but thankfully there finally seems to be medical agreement that masturbation is a healthy form of sexual expression, and one with more positive than negative effects.

    Premature ejaculation can be cured with natural methods. One really good one you can follow is

    When a man is suffering from premature ejaculation, he is often climaxing before his partner and in the case of most men it is difficult if not impossible for them to continue intercourse after ejaculating. That’s because chemicals are released when a man ejaculates and these are the same chemicals that make a person feel sleepy and/or not aroused. It’s not that they have suddenly lost interest; just their brain is telling them that the sex is over. This effect is more prominent after intercourse than after masturbation because intercourse actually causes four times more of these chemicals to be released. If premature ejaculation occurs frequently, it can lead to embarrassment for the man and sexual frustration for both partners.

    Cheers ;)

    Premature ejaculation is caused by specific things that you do before and during sex. Most of the time without even realizing it. Read here

    Premature ejaculation is not some gene you're born with, the result of your penis size or a part of your personality that you can never change.

    Ok quick English lesson...

    It would be "ARE" there any negative effects, seeing as you're asking about something in the plural. If you were only concerned about one negative effect you might say "IS there A negative effect?" Okay?

    And the answer is: Everything in moderation. Too much swordplay can leave you with a dull sword when it comes time to fight for real. But a sharpening here and there never hurt anyone, and no you cannot go to hell for it as some idiots would have you believe.
