Masturbation – when does it go wrong?

Masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals for sexual arousal or sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm. Masturbation is probably the most universal of all sexual practices, at least among men. Surveys on the subject since the nineteenth century suggest that well over 90 percent of men masturbate at some time during their lives. Men, as early as in their childhood discover that touching their genitals feels good. Most men grow up learning that masturbation is wrong or bad and only a few grow out of the false guilt they carry with the act.

Masturbation is a normal part of healthy life, very common, nothing wrong with it and safe are reassuring for men to practice the sexual act without any guilt.  Unlike the risks involved in sexual intercourse, masturbation as a sexual act is safe in terms of protecting oneself from sexually transmitted diseases and avoid unwanted pregnancies. Having said that masturbation is a safe and sound sexual practice, there are ways when it could go wrong.

Masturbation - When does it go wrong?

Healthy masturbation relieves stress and rewards with feel good neurotransmitters and hormones. There are abnormal ways of masturbation that may make men fall prey to physical and mental ailments. Men become victims of extreme abnormal ways of masturbation with appalling consequences. There have been cases of extreme masturbation resulting in grave physical injury, psychological disturbances and crime.

Obsessive Masturbation

Masturbation may cease to serve its objectives of stress relief under circumstances of obsessive masturbation. In obsessive masturbation, a person is usually involved in an inward impersonal fantasy world. One may get used to it as the inappropriate way to resolve other things. But because of relieving one’s mind with masturbation, he may never do those other things in need. Such inappropriate behaviour may interfere with decision-making, action-planning and executing. This may incur loss to a man’s personality and identity.

Compulsive Masturbation

Masturbation becomes compulsive when it gets in the way of one’s work, responsibilities or social life. Like any other behaviour or habit, Compulsive masturbation can disrupt one’s life. Masturbation can be destructive when used as a means of cutting off oneself from feelings and attachments. Masturbation officially becomes a problem when a man is doing it instead of talking to people, or being intimate with them.  Masturbation here is being used as a way of soothing oneself and depriving his relation to another person. Compulsive masturbation behaviour comes with secrecy and deception. In accordance with his intense masturbation behaviour, the person may expect unrealistic sexual participation from his partner and if not met, can strain interpersonal relationships. This, in the long run can deprive the female partner from romantic relationships and break down family life.

Excessive masturbation can have negative effects of addiction. When a person becomes dependent on sated and relaxed feelings post masturbation and uses them to escape stressful life situations or mental problems, it opens the possibility for masturbation addiction to occur.  Addiction to masturbation can lead a person to spend more time in masturbating and less time at meaningful work. People who are addicted to masturbation seem to spend more hours watching pornographic clips and videos. This makes them less available and less productive individuals.

People who are addicted to masturbation are in constant search for new exciting ways to achieve maximum sexual pleasure. This tendency may push the individual to extreme ways of conquering sexual pleasure from watching child pornography, masturbating in public places, masturbating at another person and other such anti-social activities.

Agressive Masturbation

Aggressive masturbation techniques such as tight grip and vigorous strokes when practiced over an extended period of time can desensitize the penile nerves. Excessive masturbation without sufficient lubrication can cause penile skin irritation and make it sore. Repeated aggressive hand masturbation systematically desensitizes the penis through excess pressure and friction. The face down position of masturbating against a surface such as the mattress, bed etc., puts a great deal of pressure on the penis. This pressure in the prone position is much more than the pressure from free hand masturbation. Undue pressure on the erect penis in the prone position can also be a reason for numbness and desensitization of the penis. Desensitization of penis can be a cause of concern in achieving and sustaining penile erection during sexual intercourse. Due to pornography addiction and/or wrong masturbation techniques, men may become both physically and psychologically desensitized to normal sexual stimulation and arousal with a sexual partner. (Erectile Dysfunction)

Penile Fracture

Penile fracture is a rare condition of vigorous masturbation, wherein an erect penis snaps due to rough handling. The chambers that hold blood during erection ruptures causing pain and swelling of the penis. A surgery may be the only way to restore penile function. Men can suffer blunt trauma when they try to intensify masturbating by penetrating their penis in to objects that are not meant for sexual pleasure or to simulate intercourse. These can be dangerous and can lead to injury and permanent damage.

Masturbation as non-procreative sex is linked to the perceptions within a given culture of its nature and consequences. Ideas about masturbation are crucial for understanding societal attitude towards sex. Masturbation is a key to understanding changing development in attitudes toward human sexuality. Attitudes towards masturbation are slow to change but as they do so,  attitude towards sexuality also changes. Thus, views on masturbation have been carried over as changes from theological offence in to medico – morals through the years.  An act that was once sullied as spiritually wrong is now gaining awareness as a healthy sexual act.

The vast proliferation of pornographic Web sites, phone sex lines, and other erotic media suggests masturbation is widely practiced. With the advancement of information and technology, more ways to increase pleasure through masturbation have been introduced. Almost everyone who is sexually active or is experiencing sexual urges can masturbate. When done in moderation and in a controlled manner, masturbation can be an ideal way of relieving sexual urges and preventing sexually transmitted infections and diseases. If a man feels that the need to masturbate is interfering with his everyday life, talking to a sexual health care provider can help. If the act becomes all-consuming, there may be an underlying medical cause such as inappropriate age, lack of sexual knowledge, sexualized play or aggression, prematurely developed seductive behaviour or an indicator of sexual abuse. Such behaviours require remedial measures to control the situation.


  1. My penis has become weak and I feel like even if I marry it will be hard to satisfy my wife. What can I do to make it strong?

    • Hello Mr. David,
      Weak / Strong are relative terms. Let our sexologists examine your penis and let you know if there is any problem that can be corrected.
      Sometimes, it can be a psychological issue rather than physical problem.
      Call any of our clinics for an appointment and we will see you soon.

      Thank you.

      • Sir,

        Which is the right tablet for premature ejaculation , iam currently using sildenafel citrate is that a right one or kindly suggest me…

        • Dear Kamal, one medicine doesn’t suit everyone. Your problems should be diagnosed and then medication will be provided.
          Self medication is not advisable.

      • Sir I have tight foreskin in my 13 and 14 ages but now my age is 16,the problem is cleared but sometimes it is hard to retract the forskin while erected and sometimes very easy to retract what to do ,I don’t have diabetes sir, physically fit and also many siddha doctors suggest not to masturbate you will weak bla bla it not true or not.Sir also after masturbation while urinating it is not pain but after several ejaculation like 2 to 3 times while urinate it is paining why thats all my qeuries in my opinion i can’t live without masturbation until I get married and also it is normal your you tube channel is very useful sir ,thank you…please reply sir..

        • 1. As per allopathy medicine, masturbation is not wrong and you can masturbate any number of times you want. Other sciences may tell a different story.
          2. When you masturbate multiple times, it is common that you may feel a little pain because every time u masturbate and take the semen out, the next time you have to do it harder. So, try to minimise the number of times you masturbate so that you don’t hurt your penis. Very rough masturbation can break your penis. It is called ‘Penile Fracture’.
          3. If your foreskin is not retracting and if your penis is swelling, then see me or a good sexologist near you immediately. Otherwise you are fine.

        Dr. Karthik Gunasekaran

    • Hi Veera,
      A penis when erect, if longer than 4 inches is more than good enough to satisfy your woman in bed.
      Penis extension is recommended only for small penis problems or for men with micro penis where the erect size is less than 1 inch.

      Thank you,
      Dr. Karthik Gunasekaran – Sexologist, Chennai

  7. Hi Doctor,
    i am 29 Years old. I am married. i used to masturbate from the age of 18. but i have the feel like tingling (உடல் சிலிர்ப்பு) when i touch the inner skin of penis.
    Due to that tingling, my penis is getting out form the eraction while intercourse. i am very interested to push out the penis inside the vagina but due to the tingling i am unable to insert deeper.
    one more think, the connected tissue between inner skin and outer skin of penis is not torn. so i had that pain too. so my mood will get spoiled.
    but at ejaculation state only, i can insert much(not fully) rather than initially.
    Kindly give me the solution to get relief from the tingling.

    • Hi Antony, I must take a look at exactly what is happening by examining the foreskin on your penis.
      Please call 90928 49786 for appointment.

      • Sri, stress can cause erectile dysfunction.
        You first need to know when and why this issue has started. Were you mentally affected or physically injured.
        If you were mentally broken down or affected, you need to get back and move on. Feeling more stress will put more pressure on your brain and all organs in your body.

        Try it, if that doesn’t work, please see me.

    • Penis must be measured from the bottom – where it sticks to your lower abdomen to the tip when erect.
      Avg size of Indian man’s penis is around 5 inches. A minimum of 3 inches is enough to satisfy any woman if you can play right.

    • Hello Deepak, Yes it can be done very safely. Please take an appointment and see me at the earliest.
      Thank you,

  28. Hi Sir,
    I’m 27 years olad and have been doing prone masturbation since the age of 15.
    I’m experiencing weaker erections while doing normal masturbation.
    I have quit prone masturbation completely since the past few days. Should I abstain from any type of masturbation for 2-3 months and then resume normally or is should I start masturbating normally without any break?

    • You can continue or give a break, however you feel is comfortable for you.
      You should be alright in few months. If not, please see me.

      Thank you

      • Thank you for the reply Sir. Just to get an idea, around how many months will it take for my erections to return?
        Also, my morning erections have also reduced in frequency to around 1-2 times a week. Is that due to sustained prone masturbation?

        • Dhawal, reasons can be plenty, not just because of prone masturbation. A physical examination needs to be done and if needed, I may ask you to get some tests to be done to see what the exact problem is.

  29. I watch porn video and I did masturbation. Sir there’s pain is occurred in lower stomach area .
    why there’s paining after the masturbation can you please answer this sir..???

    • A physical examination should be done to figure out the problem. It can be a problem with prostate or bladder or any other organ.
      Can you come down to my clinic for a check up. Hope there is no major underlying problem inside your body.

    • Raj, As a man ages, the frequency morning wood decreases. It also depends on how many times you are masturbating or having sex.
      I would say, not to worry much about that as long as you are able to have sex with your partner.

Please tell about it doctor and post a video about sexual health of age 15 to 18.

    • Sarathi, follow the doctor’s advice. If you don’t feel better, see him again.
      If you are still not better, please see me. Don’t worry too much.

      • Thank you sir much sir, I follow doctor and your advise on your youtube channel. Really I pay you thanks for your good videos.

  35. Hi sir,

    I am 28 years old. I have been masturbating prone since the beginning of my teen age. I noticed that I was having weak erections about 4 months ago and after watching your videos and doing some research online I completely stopped prone masturbation (4 months ago itself). Took a break for 5-7 days and started practicing supine. Ever since then I have experienced an inprovement in the strength of my erections. The frequency of good erections have also improved gradually. But on some days it is still weak. It takes a good amount of stimulus to have and maintain a good erection. Will this get better with time? Is this normal for this phase of recovery? Will I be able to get fully cured with practice and dedication towards my health? I am getting married in a few months. Do I need any medication to treat this?

      • Dear dr. I’m from america. I ham 42 now almost 43. I have done prone masterbation since I was about 18. I didn’t know the effect of it until about a month ago. It happened almost a week ago, and I can’t get an erection at all now. Is there a cure for this?

      • Narayan, Dr. Karthik would be the best person to suggest anything here.As per my experience training your brain is a gradual process. Do not expect immediate results, do not be disheartened by failures. Take care of your health. I am hoping that this will be fine with time. The frequency of good erections will improve gradually and hopefully your mind and body would learn how to react when you are aroused.

  37. Hi Sir…
    I am Narayan 29yrs old from a.p.
    I am doing prone mastrubation from 2015.
    I am feeling all problems what u said in the videos. Can I recover sir. Can I carry normal life like others. Any treatment for heavy mastrubation effects.

  38. Sir, can prone masturbation lead to any permanent nerve/tissue damage or venous leak?
    For the times when the erection is good and I masturbate, I am able to sustain it till ejaculation. Even if gets slightly weak anytime, it regains its strength as soon as the brain gets more stimulus. This lasts anywhere from 5-10 minutes. However, the night erections are not there or are weak sometimes. Is there a possibility of venous leak?

  39. Sir, I tried getting the online consultation service from the online portal for metromale clinic. The transaction is dated January 16th 2021 with txn reference number W9MCXBMPG5K. The money got deducted from my account but the transaction shows as failure when I check the transaction. There is no help and support option where I could raise this concern. Could you please have your team look into this?

  44. Sir,

    Can prone masturbation cause a permanent nerve damage? Without causing a fracture to the penis.


  45. Sir,

    I had sildenafil as prescribed by a Urologist in my area. But that didn’t make any significant difference. Is it the sign of a nerve damage due to prone masturbation?

Problem happnes every time while passing stool i am applying pressure 3,4 drops sperms comes out , after that of i am applying pressure nothing happnes..

  48. Hey i used to do prone masturbation and now i have stopped it so can i recover from its sideeffects even if i completely stop masturbation? because i really want to stop masturbation at any cost as its a sin in my religion i just dont want to perform it. Please reply thanks!

  49. I masturbated for many years without lubricant roughly about 2 to 3 times a week. I started to feel a pain in the left side of my penis at abut age 40 after masturbation which would last for a short time and gradually it started to last for a few hours and then days. I am 63 now and the pain now will last a week or longer and is very debilitating. If i am not carful when I masturbate, the pain returns. Sex it is also a problem since the pain started, it husts on the left top side. Using lubricant helps to reduce the rubbing. I dont have peyronie’s disease. Just this sickening pain. Some times the pain returns when my penis gets squeezed when I crouch down. I experience like a sting in my penis on the top.

    I have had MRI done and other examination and nothing could be found out of the ordinary. I have taken anti inflammatories and did not help. I have tried anti inflammatory creams and no help. The problem appears to be just below the skin so I cant get to it with creams.

    I am at a loss as to what to do.

    Appreciate any light you can shed on this problem.

  51. The hair on my scrotum are turning white from black if i don’t masturbate is everything alright? and if something is wrong then what is the solution for it? i am not masturbating from 1 month and the white hairs are coming on my testes(scrotum) and within thighs. my age is 20?

    • Just change of colour of the hair is not a problem. Just make sure you can masturbate / have sex without any problem.
      also, check your semen after you ejaculate, whether it is watery or thick. If thick, don’t worry and resume your no fap thing.

  52. Dear Doctor, many guys in my building have taken to meeting on the rooftop, for chatting, smoking, and secretly masturbating together. We together expose our erect penises, and quickly masturbate to ejaculate. When our wife’s are tired and often not in a good mood, it is no problem.
    We have the same equipment and am not embarrassing to show other males our erections. We encourage each other, and watching another male pleasure his penis, speaks to our penis, arousing it very fast. We understand that the penis has physical need to ejaculate, and it is more fun to ejaculate as needed with other males than having to deal with wife’s, who I believe I am not in love with. They don’t need to know about our boys club on the roof, yes?
    So please doctor your opinion advise me. Thank you
