I have a habit that has persisted for long and I am finding it difficult to shun it. I would like to find out, is this habit detrimental to my health and if so, how best can I stop it?
Masturbation is a habit as old as mankind. But scientifically, it has been proved that masturbation is harmless.
Rather it is relaxing for the mind as well as body. Risks exist where say a female would insert some infected or sharp object for self gratification, likely to cause infection or trauma.
In case of male masturbation also, it is advised to do so in moderation. Frequent masturbation and handling of the male organ is said to lead to irritation of the penis causing burning and even chaffing of the skin in some cases.
But overall there is nothing to worry.
