Masturbation is a normal part of sexual life for most people. But you may be worrying about possible health risks. You do run the risk of bruises and swelling due to extreme and rough masturbation. However, if it is bordering on or has turned into an addiction, it could ruin relationships and cause emotional effects on yourself and others.
Showing yourself some love is never a bad thing. But is masturbation necessary for your health overall? If you’ve been wondering whether you’re missing out on some benefits beyond the obvious, here’s a closer look at whether you need to make masturbation a part of your wellness regimen.
In Ayurveda, nutrition consists of 4 things: The sensual objects we perceive; Our actions, thoughts, and feelings; The environment around us; Dietary range. Once energy is expended, through any channel our bodies and minds start metabolizing again, and if our “diet” of the four above is wholesome and plentiful, we will be able to regenerate our energy.
According to Ayurveda, masturbation is safe depending on the person's body type: Kapha, Pitta, or Vata. The Kapha and Pitta body type can masturbate often as they are stable and have more energy, respectively. But the Vata body type can overdo masturbation as they tend to obsess over ideas and fantasies. Masturbating once or twice a week is fine.
Examine your fantasies to see what truly turns you on. Learn not to settle for cheap thrills. Avoid robotic masturbation, just as you would not want monotonous sex. Don’t masturbate if you are not positively charged and you should only engage with a lover when you are vitally turned-on. Don’t masturbate just to fall asleep. If you are exhausted skip masturbating.
No, masturbation does not cause hair loss. Other factors like age, genes, stress, and high DHT hormone levels do. Though ejaculation increases DHT, which shortens both the hair follicle and the growth phase of hair, science has found no link between hair loss and masturbation. That masturbation causes hair loss is a myth probably invented to keep self-love a taboo.
