Negative effects of prone masturbation and how to overcome it


  • Lying on your chest/stomach, applying intense pressure on your penis and genitals to masturbate is called ‘Prone Masturbation’.
  • When you get used to prone masturbation, your body stops responding to lighter stimulus by you or your partner resulting in ejaculatory problems and erection problems.
  • You need to have will power to stop prone masturbation and you must follow the guidance of your sexologist to return to normal if you are addicted to prone masturbation.

What is Prone Masturbation?

When a man lies down on his chest/stomach and masturbates, the position and act is called ‘Prone Masturbation’. The person usually applies pressure on his erect penis by pushing himself (his hip) towards the bed, pillow or the floor. Some may even thrust their hip into their hands by putting them around his penis.

This puts more pressure in the area than usual masturbation and men find more pleasure masturbating this way. While this may sound exciting, hold on your horses for a minute and read further. Continuous prone masturbation can lead to sexual dysfunction (which we will see in this article) and other orgasm related complications. Such a condition is called ‘Traumatic Masturbatory Syndrome’.


Why is prone masturbation bad?

When you lie face down and put pressure on your genitals with your hip pressing downwards and hands pressing upwards, there is a lot of pressure that is felt in that area. As you get used to get this kind of pressure to ejaculate, your body will ejaculate only when such pressure is laid next time when you masturbate.

However, when having actual sex or masturbating in other positions, the pressure that is put on the genitals will be way less than that when performing prone masturbation. As a result, you may not reach orgasm and/or you may not ejaculate. In order to ejaculate, you may have to perform your sexual act way longer than usual, which can cause ‘delayed ejaculation’. Also, in order to stimulate and get an erection, you may have to apply a lot of pressure which can cause erectile dysfunction.

In short, prone masturbation can cause ejaculatory problems such as anejaculation, anorgasmia, delayed ejaculation and/or erectile dysfunction.

Next comes the psychological impact. When you have difficulty getting an erection or ejaculating, your mind feels stress and anxiety. You will start doubting yourself if you can ever get an erection and have sex with your partner. This in-turn adds up to erectile dysfunction problem, making it worse.


How will you know if prone masturbation is having a negative impact on you?

  1. If you are not able to reach orgasm when masturbating in a different position or having sex with your partner. However you try by yourself or with your partner, if you are not able to ejaculate and/or reach orgasm, you must understand that prone masturbation has taken you over.
  2. If you start disliking having actual sex or don’t want to masturbate in any other position other than prone, you must understand that your body and mind got habituated to that intense pressure.
  3. If you are not able to get or maintain an erection – With normal stimulation by yourself or your toys or by your partner is not enough to make your penis erect or if you are not able to maintain that erection, realize that you are already in the middle of the problem.

What is the solution for prone masturbation?

You are the solution for prone masturbation and your sexologist should be your teacher/guru who can help you get out of the situation. Here are few things you can do to get out of prone masturbation:

  1. Stop masturbating completely. When you stop masturbating totally, after few days or weeks, you will start having erections even with lighter stimulation. Then you can try masturbating in normal position. Repeat the process. When you give good amount of gap, say a month, your body will start responding to mild sensations in your genitals. When you continue that routine, you can easily come out of the habit of prone masturbation.
  2. Reduce the frequency of masturbation – Similar to the above mentioned method, you can give long pause between masturbations. This can erase all the negative impacts of frequent and high pressured masturbations that you had been doing previously.
  3. Masturbate in different positions – When you are masturbating after giving a gap, try different positions such as standing, sleeping on your back etc, so that your body will start responding to the stimulus in different positions. As a result, when you have real sex with your partner, you will start enjoying every position.

On the whole, is masturbation a good or bad habit?

As per modern science, masturbation is a healthy habit. There is no upper limit on the number of times you ejaculate in a day; either through masturbation or sex. However, there are other branches of science such as ayurveda, siddha, unani, Taoism etc who advise otherwise. Those sciences don’t advise men to masturbate and have their reasons for suggesting so.

At the end of the day, it is up to you to decide what to do and what not to do. If you decide to pleasure your mind and body with masturbation, just go ahead! Just make sure that you don’t hurt yourself in the process.


  1. Hi sir, i am 19 year old male virgin,I found in mirror that my penis glans/head is pointing downwards , it is like bend,but the penis body is straight when erect. I do have a history of prone masturbation for more than 6 years.But i don’t have problem urinating and I can get erections, masturbate with hands normally.But in prone I’ll finish in 1-2 mins, I remember my penis is not erect while doing so.Now I stopped prone position.

          • Eat good food. Masturbate once in 3 days and see if that helps.
            your body needs time to produce all semen related material. Try this for a couple of months and see if you still have problem, see me or any good andrologist near you.

    • Erectile Dysfunction due to prone masturbation is possible. The reason is, your penis needs a lot of stimulation to get erect.
      A habit for 12 years can’t be resolved in few days or weeks, right? Have patience, give few weeks time, you will start having erections.

      • Hello sir im only 21. Please please help. I had a habbit of masturbating almost twice a day everyday since 2017. And started facing errection issues in 2019. But sir i have this in memory that before my problem started. I had this habbit of sleeping on my stomach and keeping my penis parallel to my thigh. My friends in hostel told me i would press my hips against the bed in sleep and masturbated in sleep .Now sir i haave errection only on sitting or lying down sideways and none on standing. If i stand with errection gained on lying or sitting it disappears. I also have to push urine out and face some issues holding it. I saw an uro in delhi who on physical examination said external genetelia was normal. Sir please help

    Bend – toward left
    Orgain – my panis and testis look small and week (all vines are visible)
    Body weekness
    Low libido
    I trid to have sex but didn’t get errection
    Not getting feeling for having sex
    The girls touch and kiss should give pleasure and errection which is missing.

    How to cure this issue

    • Mr abc, are you having stress of any kind? At home or work or finance related?
      If yes, you need to sort that out first. And then, you should also stop worrying about the erection problem. Stress can cause a lot of problems as I tell in my blogs and videos. You should get that addressed first.
      If you still continue to have erection problems, please see me or a good sexologist near you.

  18. Sir I am 18 years old and I am doing prone mastrubation daily for 5 years. I use a pillow or a bed to apply pressure and mastrubate. In the past I used to do 3 times a day but now I have reduced to 1. I realised I have to apply more pressure for a long time to ejaculate. And also my penis feels less sensitive. Now my penis is bent towards the left and I am unable to get good satisfaction. When erected it stays at a 80 degree angle to the left. I tried to use my hand but I fail everytime. I cannot urinate easily during erections and have to wait for a minute or so. My sperms also look less and I get some sharp pain rarely near anus. It resides after 2-3 hours. I also get a sharp pain at the end of my spine but its very very rare and lasts for 5 seconds. If I stop mastrubation completely, is it enough to overcome the side effects or should I seek urgent medical attention? If so, what are the problems that I am facing besides ED? Please help me.

    • You are thinking too much. Penis curvature is common, you should worry only if you are not able to have sex.
      When the penis is erect, it will take time to urinate. Problem is with your thoughts, relax, stop prone, you will be alright.

  19. Hello. I’m an 18 y/o virgin boy. I’ve been masturbating for couple of years but my method is a bit different. I think its kind of similar to prone masturbation but I’m not sure. I lay on the bed facing up and start touching and my penis from outside my pants. My problem is that i can ejaculate only through this method and not through Normal masturbation. I’m afraid this might be a problem in future sexual life of mine. Can you please tell whether i should consider it similar to prone masturbation and start the outcome methods you suggested in this blog so that I’ll be able to start ejaculating and get orgasm through Normal masturbation?

    • Irrespective of whether you are going prone exactly or not, if you are not able to ejaculate in any other position might cause a problem.
      Take a break, say good 2 weeks, from masturbation. Try in other position. If not, please see a doctor.

  20. Hi I got question
    I use to masterbate prone position as a kid like 9-13. I’ve stopped all that years ago but I feel I may have done permanent damage but I’ve had a camera put up urethra by the urologist at age 20 and they found nothing. My erection is downward to the left. Granted I also have a botched circumcision .
    It’s also easy to lose erection when I stand on my feet
    Thank you

  21. Hello Sir,

    I used to masturbate 2 to 3 times a week. Last month Nov 21st i got lower back pain after masturbation. So i stopped masturbation but still i have lower back pain and last two to three days i am having night fall. Is it normal and do i need to do anything else. Please advise. Thanks in advance!!

    • Here is what I can quickly think.
      Your masturbation and back pain may not be related. Since you stopped masturbation, you can expect night fall or semen leakage in sleep.

      If the backpain persists, please see a general physician or a physiotherapist near you.

  22. Hello Dr., I’ve been doing prone since childhood and I’ve only recently discovered that it is bad so I tried the normal way of doing it right away yet am unable to reach orgasm. I think prone masturbation has desensitized me, is this a normal phase in the recovery process? What should I do?

  23. Sir,
    I had been prone masturbating during the age 12-17, now I’m 22. But since then even though I have stopped doing it since years I have a very frequent urge to urinate. I remember that before doing it prone my urine frequency was normal but now it has increased significantly. Does prone masturbation lead to damage to the sphincter muscle or any other damage which could lead to frequent urination. Please advise on any remedies for this.

  24. Sir , i am going through erectile dysfunction. And i have stopped masterbation and porn completely since one month. How many more days do i need to wait to see significant results? And also is semen retention bad and cause prostate cancer or any other disease?

  25. Dear Sir,
    I have quit prone masturbation since the last 4-5 years but I feel the urge to urinate in my penis shaft instead of the bladder. The frequency is also more than normal. Is it normal to feel urine pressure in the shaft everytime?

  26. Can prone masturbation lead to prostatitis or urethral damage or any other damage in that area. And can the urethral damage be treated?
    Thank You

  27. Hi sir..because of prone masturbution my penis was in curve position.if I avoid porne masturbution pennis look straight sir?

  28. Sir, after ejaculation my penis gets normal. But when it gets erected again , I have mild pain. The pain mostly goes away after few hours. Is it normal Sir? Do I have any problem?

  29. hi sir,
    I used to prone masturbate for around 5 years in my early and late teenage. I wanted to ask whether this could cause any damage to the nerves or the muscles around the bladder or penis. Thank you.

  30. Sir i have trying prone masturbation from last 10 yrs but i was unaware of there side effect and i get ejaculated within a minute jn this but when I tried this with my partner on bed then I can’t control my erection even in the foreplay. And I am trying to avoid it completely and I stopped prone masturbation as well but I am not getting normal ejaculation. I can’t control myself longer in bed please help me out sir.

  31. Sir, I got very addicted to prone position and have done it for a long time. I began a new relationship 4 months ago and begun having sex with my partner and I’ve had trouble finishing and its been a psychological thing too I think. I quit prone completely about 3 weeks ago, am I on the right track to return to “normal” soon? Any advice would help thank you.

  32. Sir,

    Is it normal to feel urine pressure in the penis shaft instead of the bladder/lower abdomen. I used to prone masturbate 4-5 years ago. Pls help

  33. Sir,
    I am 21 years old. I used to prone masturbate 4-5 years ago and have stopped since then. I have been facing frequent urination issue since then and recently I visited an urologist who said that there is an inflammation in my prostate. Is all this related and can it be cured ?

    • Not necessarily. Prone masturbation can cause erectile dysfunction as your penis gets used to a ton of stimulation to get erect.
      I don’t see any prostate related issue caused by prone masturbation. Continue seeing your doctor, it can be a different issue.

      • Hello sir I am 17 years old and been from 1 week i am not getting erection my penis is not getting hard even when I see women or even imagine her same as like used to get one week a go earlier one week i was been doing project masterbation from more than 5 to 6 years but nowadays my penis not getting hard as earlier i am just getting mornings erections or my dick is getting erect too slowly plzz help me with this

    • UTI need not always be the cause of frequent urination. There may be problem with prostate too.
      Most often the problem is treatable. Please see a good sexologist near you or if you are in Chennai, please see any of our good sexologists.

    • How much is your penis bent? Are you able to perform sexual intercourse, if yes, then don’t worry.
      If your penis is bent too much and it is not letting your have sex, then it should be considered as a problem.
      Little bit of curvature is very common.

  41. Hello,

  46. Hello Dr, I have been doing prone masturbation from last one year, I have stopped it after knowing about its negative effects,… I’m able to masturbate with hands but my penis is erect but its head is soft….what should I do?

  47. Hey, I’ve done prone masturbation for many years now and when normally masturbation, it doesn’t feel good at all I get no sensation from it and I can only finish when in the prone position. I’ve stopped masturbation in the prone positions for 3 weeks and than I tried again to masturbate normally and the same thing happened. I’ve fallen back into the habit now and I find it really hard to get out. I can always maintain an erection but I am worried if I ever have sex than I will not feel it nor ejaculate. Do you have any tips to stop masturbation? If the same thing happens again, what should I do.

  48. I used to masturbate prone in my teenage, now I’m 23. Recently I’ve discovered that I have prostatitis after visiting a doctor. Frequent urination, night urination and foul smell are a result of the above issues. Are they because of prone masturbation and can they be fixed . Thank You

  52. For 1.5 month i masturbated normaly but after that i masturbate some time so i along run i do someday prone .as i have done prone for 10 year .is it normal to do prone someday .or this frequency will decrease in some time.

  53. I am. Suffering from prone masterbation from last 10 year and now I am not able to sex with partner my penis get errect for sometime but afterwards it’s gets normal without giving me pleasure

  54. Hello Dr, I’m 28 and I have done prone masturbation twice a day since I was 11. I recently lost my virginity and my penis feels so numb during sex. I have Loss of sensitivity and I start losing my erection because I can’t feel much during sex to enjoy it. I can’t cum from it. I recently found out how bad prone masturbation is I quit and It’s been 4 months of no prone masturbation I masturbate normally now. But my penis still feels numb during real sex

  55. Dr. I’m 28 and had sex for the first time and i didn’t feel like anything. My penis felt numb and I think it’s because I’ve had a bad habit of prone masturbation for 18 years. I can’t keep an erection long during intercourse/sex because I can’t feel much sensitivity and can’t cum from sex. I am on 4 months of no prone masturbation. I started masturbating the normal way. Will I get my sensitivity back enough to enjoy sex and please my partner? I would really appreciate your opinion thanks.

      • Thank you so much Dr. I really appreciate you taking your time responding to me. You give me a lot of hope. I gave up prone 4 months ago. Last week I had sex and saw very little improvement with intercourse. I have increased sensitivity from normal masturbation now. But with sex it’s still not feeling good to me. I lose my erection after a couple minutes or from changing positions because I start thinking too much about this when I’m having intercourse. I’ll be in my head wondering why I can’t feel good and I start thinking I’m not gonna cum while I’m having sex this is causing me to lose my erection too soon and my partner is not satisfied. Thanks for giving me hope it means alot.

  65. Hi doctor,
    Iam doing prone masturbation for about since from age of 6
    But from the age of 17 I quitted mastrubation completely but 2 months ago I done prone again and then I realised it is harmful so after a week I done normal method & i had good erection( I think so) and for past 2 months Iam doing hand methods but sometimes I ejaculate less. I can now ejaculate using hand method but I am confused that does my semen volume is low during ejaculation due to prone I done before..
    I have to quit ‘mastrubation’ from my life completely and only like to have sex with my partner in future(since mastrubation is killing many of my times). For that how much should I practice hand method to become normal? Do Iam normal now??
    Will I have any erectile dysfunction in future??
    Iam now 20 yrs old

  79. Sir, I am actually a woman and have been doing the female equivalent of prone masturabation since I was very young. I cannot finish from sex with partner or with my hands or any normal method. This has caused me to become desensitised and I cannot finish in any other position than prone and humping. how to fix. pls advise

    • You too need to give your body time to recover and come to normalcy.
      When you deprive your body of sex for a long time, it responds easily and well with very little stimulation. That’s where you need to get.
      If you are married, don’t worry too much about it. Continue with your regular sex life with your partner and after few months, things will start getting better.

      If you want to see a doctor, just make sure, you don’t take any artificial hormones.

  80. I done prone masturbation for yrs by giving intense pressure.after that i identified i had phimosis and done circumcision before 6 months.now i trying by hand masturbation,the problem is that i am not attaining orgasm in the time of ejaculation instead ejaculation happens by contraction and expansion(self pressure) of glans of penis,after this type of ejaculation my glans portion is more sensitive than before for 10-12 hrs.Should I need psycho sexual therapy for cure?

  81. I did prone masterbation for 2 years. And now i am getting problem with erection and it takes lots of time doing the hand method but i fail. Am i victim of ed? (i am 12 years old) will it take less time if i recover from the side effects of prone masterbation.

    • You will become a victim of ED if you don’t stop. That’s the bottom line of this article.
      If you have stopped, that’s your first successful step. Now, have patience. Give time to your body to recover from the injury you caused for 2 years.
      Don’t masturbate for few weeks. You should see your penis erect by itself.

      • Sir I Need Your Guidance!! I’m 18½ rn… I’m doing prone masturbation from age of 14. I reduced frequency of doing it but i noticed that through the period of time my legs muscle are not growing…i have very good physique but my legs are not matching my upper body. So my question is does prone masturbation effect growth of legs? And give me solution for it too

  82. M 27 when i was 21 while masturbating time i close my penis using skin so what happen is sperm reversed so afterthat my penis not working properly now i 50% cured but not completely what should i do doctor?

    • When you close your penis ending with skin or with your finger during ejaculation, due to pressure in the pipes, you may feel pain or little discomfort but this should subside unless something happens (like a rupture of the urethra carrying the semen (very rare)) happens.
      This shouldn’t affect your sexual health in anyway but by your comment, it seems that something else has happened.
      I recommend seeing a doctor and getting your penis examined.
