The Impact Of Frequent Masturbation In Men?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Onani (masturbation) is an act of stimulating oneself to get sexual satisfaction. This condition is often associated with disorders of the prostate gland, especially prostate cancer. The relationship between masturbation and the incidence of prostate cancer varies depending on age and frequency of masturbation.
Often masturbation is defined differently depending on the age of the man. In men aged 20-30 years, "frequent" masturbation is defined as those who masturbate at least 2 to 7 times per week. Meanwhile, in men aged around 50 years, masturbating once or more a week can be categorized as "often".
Based on research conducted at the University of Nottingham, England, frequent masturbation can increase the risk of prostate cancer in men aged 20 to 30 years. However, in men aged around 50 years, what happens is the opposite, frequent masturbation can reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
How can this condition occur? This is still being researched today. However, many experts suspect that, high sexual desire, which causes a man's desire to masturbate frequently is regulated by androgen hormones. The prostate gland is a gland that is very sensitive to this hormone. Therefore, excessive masturbation can make the prostate gland stimulated continuously, and ultimately more susceptible to abnormal and uncontrolled growth, leading to cancer. So, it's not just masturbation that increases the risk of prostate cancer. However, it is more due to the high levels of the androgen hormone. Meanwhile, in older men, masturbation can actually reduce the potential for prostate cancer. This is thought to occur because the fluid in prostate cancer which may contain cancer cells can be removed by means of masturbation. The frequency of masturbation that is not too frequent, as happened in younger men, does not trigger the growth of cancer cells.
Although the connection is not clear, you should avoid masturbating too often. Because, in addition to the potential to cause health problems, frequent masturbation can also cause you to become accustomed to being aroused by mortal sexual stimulation, which tends to be excessive. As a result, it is easy to get bored and find it difficult to get aroused by real sexual stimulation, which is often not as delusional as imaginary. This condition can make you experience ejaculation disorders, even impotence.
