... a site about masturbation and you!

Some sites on the Internet are not truthful about masturbation. Masturbation is one of the healthiest things you can do. Over hundreds of years, people were led to believe that it was bad or that it caused health problems. In the past 120 years, medicine and most religions have recognized that those things aren't true. Since HealthyStrokes.com is unashamedly a pro-masturbation web site, we present here the facts about masturbation to rebut what lies have been told about masturbation.

TEN FACTS ABOUT MASTURBATION AND YOUR HEALTH

Masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health

Masturbation is a healthy habit that most younger males practice daily. Males who masturbate daily usually do so well into their 20s.


Masturbation is good for maintaining fertility and does not make a man unable to produce children later

All men who have fathered children have a long history of masturbating. If a man is trying to conceive, he has a better chance if he's masturbated within a few days than if he hasn't. Masturbating flushes out the older semen and sperm cells and after masturbating, the newer, better semen and sperm cells are left


All males masturbate after puberty

If your body has changed, you should expect to masturbate frequently. You are not the only one. Nearly all males start masturbating between ages 11 and 15. Ejaculating semen is usually the first event that happens to a male when he reaches puberty. About 80 percent of males experience their first ejaculation by masturbating. By the time a male suddenly grows taller and his voice changes, it is very likely he's masturbating regularly. By the time he grows facial hair, it's practically certain.


Masturbating flushes your sex organs of fluids that have accumulated and keeps them in good, healthy condition

Males have many sexual organs that need to be emptied regularly: the prostate gland, the seminal vesicles, Cowper's gland. Masturbating cannot cause you to run out of sperm, semen, or other sexual fluids. These fluids are replenished daily just like other bodily fluids: saliva, stomach acid, bile.

Masturbating is also good for the penis. It keeps the blood flowing in and out of the penis like it's supposed to for erections.


Males who masturbate most often when they're young have the least incidence of prostate cancer later. For this reason, some doctors recommend that younger males masturbate at least six times per week.

A team of doctors led by Dr. Graham Giles queried a group of men with prostate cancer and an age-matched group without it about how often they ejaculated at various points in their lives. Men who ejaculated more in their teens and 20s had the least incidence of prostate cancer.


Masturbation reduces mental stress and lowers blood pressure

Masturbation is completely free and completely fun. It is the best stress reducer a young man can have! After masturbating, a male's mind is clear and his body is rested. Built-up stress can flow outward. (Many males use this restful state to go directly to sleep for the night!)


Masturbating does not cause anything to go wrong with your brain, stomach, liver, heart, or other vital organs

If anything, masturbating is good for those organs. Masturbating is good exercise that can benefit the whole body. It stimulates the heart to pump and the lungs to breathe deeply. Thinking sexy thoughts stimulates the brain.


Masturbating is fun and much safer than having sexual relations with partners

Masturbating does not cause any diseases, and it does not expose a male to any sexually transmitted diseases. It is the safest sexual activity of all. Masturbating frequently can keep a person from engaging in sexual relations with people who have sexually transmitted diseases.


Masturbating cannot cause you to lose your virginity

No one has ever lost their virginity by masturbating. The only way you can lose your virginity is by having sexual intercourse with another person. Masturbating does not make you become no longer a virgin.


There is no such thing as "overmasturbation."

Like any other part of the body, the penis can hurt if it has too much activity, but that does not mean a male is "overmasturbating." It simply means that the guy should take it easy for a day or so and perhaps use lubricant on the penis if masturbating is painful. If a male masturbates too vigorously, his penis might hurt for a while and then get better, just like straining any other part of the body. Don't let anyone tell you you're "overmasturbating." That isn't even a word!
