Okay, I've heard all these horror storys of things going wrong when guys masturbate too much. Some of the symptoms of over masturbation were listed as: Weight loss Hair loss Fuzzy vision Memory problems Problems concentrating Lower back pain Constant sleepyness Soft or weak erections Premature ejaculations "Eye floaters"There was more I just can't remember it. I have experienced a few of these symptoms such as constant sleepyness, memory problems, and problems concentrating. I am an aspiring scientist and used to have a photographic memory to the point where I could hear or see things once and remember them, then repeat them on a test. I have lost this ability and I now have to read things up to 5 or 6 times in order to get them to sink into my head. thsi is really getting in the way of my life style and I have for some time been trying to find the cause of this. Only after i saw this condition have I had even a clue to why I have been feeling the way I had lately. Obviously, I masturbate, or else I wouldn't be here. What healthy guy doesn't? The science behind this over masturbation is as follows. "Frequent masturbation and ejaculation stimulate acetylcholine/parasympathetic nervous functions. Excessive stimulation can result in over production of sex hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin.Abundant and unusually large amount of these hormones and neurotransmitters can cause the brain and adrenal glands to perform excessive dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion and turn the brain and body functions to be extremely sympathetic. In other words, there is a big change of body chemistry when one excessively masturbates.Over masturbation participants experience problems with concentration and memory. This is a dangerous side effect of over masturbation and signals that the brain is being over drained of acetycholine. Over masturbation drains motor neurons and neuro-muscular endings of acetycholine, which is eventually replaced. Over masturbation can lead to absentmindedness, memory loss, lack of concentration, and eye floaters. To fight these symptoms, the chemical levels in your body needs to be balanced.The plethora of problems associated with over masturbation come from the fact that your body is drained of important nutrients and hormones from over masturbation."Well if any of you understood that, is this real? The science checks out for me but then I am only an intern and don't know a whole lot in this just yet. It's been worrying me a lot and I can't find a cure for it thats not in the form of some shady looking site trying to sell some herbal remedy that I want no part of. If this can be a real problem, will simply lowering my masturbation rate cure this naturaly by my body naturaly replenishing these hormones and nutrients? As I said before this is worrying me a lot and I am afraid to ask any of the scientists i work around because of the akwardness of the matter. Has anyone ever heard of this condition or know if it's real? Please answer if anyone here understands or knows anything about this subject.
Those are myths.
~*~Smile, it's the second best thing you can do with your mouth.~*~
Just outta curiousity again amanda...what is the 1st best thing u can do w/ ur mouth?
**I ain't being mean, just honest**
Is it truely a myth then? Thank god! I was freakin out about this one
So, as "an aspiring scientist", you post all that scientific mumbo jumbo, and someone says "those are myths" (I counted three words), you're all set? Well, that was easy.It's a good thing ordinary sex can't cause all those problems, or porno stars would have poor memories (as opposed to bad memories)...uh memories....what were we talking about?

1- read the posts about this
2- you can't spank it too much
3- your loss of memory is due to masterbation anxiety
4- your loss of memory is due to masterbation anxiety
and there was light
Acetylcholine is the transmitter for all neuromuscular junctions, so if "draining" the body of it were a problem, it would be a problem with all exercise. In fact, acetylcholine released at synapses is hydrolysed by cholineesterase to choline, which is reabsorbed and reacetylated, so it isn't lost. Incidentally, there's not much in the brain - it's mostly a neurotransmitter of the peripheral nervous system.The suggestion that monoamine release might lead to re-regulation of their production is more plausible, but I suspect you would have to spend most of your life masturbating to see that sort of effect.
Those are ALL myths. None of them are caused directly by masturbation. I'll list them real quick:
gMale pattern hair loss is caused by a form of testosterone that is processed by the body, called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). While high amounts of DHT can cause hairloss, its mostly a hereditary factor that makes some guy's scalp hair follicles more sensitive to damage from DHT. However, DHT levels don't necessarily increase much (if at all) when you masturbate, and it certainly wouldn't make any difference if you had sex a lot or masturbated a lot. In other words, you could be completely abstinent and not masturbate or have sex at all, and still suffer hair loss, if you have a lot of DHT and the hairloss genes for it.
I'm not aware of any sex hormones that cause vision problems, other than when you get horny enough with a lot of testosterone, then gradually ugly girls begin to look pretty (kind of like beer goggles) :wink:
Again, I'm not aware of any sex hormones that cause memory problems, and even if there were, there would be no difference between frequent masturbation and frequent sex.
I've found the opposite in my experience. I find if I don't ejaculate for a long time (several weeks or more), the level of sexual tension and horniness that builds inside me makes me constantly think about sex and masturbation, and my concentration levels on other things not sexual goes WAY down. It gets to a point where I can't concentrate on anything but sex. Frequent masturbation and ejaculation helps relieve the sexual tension and allows me to concentrate on other things.
Lower back pain
Well, the only masturbation that can cause lower back pain is self sucking, like I do :laughing:
Again, I find during periods of prolonged abstinence, the sexual tension and horniness I get actually causes me to have sleep problems. Basically I'll wake up earlier than normal, still tired, but with a raging hardon and a strong urge to masturbate, and my mind starts wandering, and I can't fall back to sleep. If I masturbate frequently, I sleep like a baby all through the night with no problem.
Soft or weak erections
I haven't found any difference. I don't see how your erections would get weaker from masturbation, unless you lost interest in it for some reason.
Again, I've found the opposite. If I haven't ejaculated in a long time, I ejaculate MUCH faster. The more often I ejaculate, the longer I can last.
Eye floaters are caused by little sacks of fluid behind the eye. Doctors aren't completely sure what causes them, other than possibly some eye injury, maybe high blood pressure, etc. But I don't see how masturbation could cause them. If it did, a lot of people would be practically blind with all the floaters they have by now!
My avatar is a picture of my own sperm under a microscope. Pretty cool huh?Drugs are garbage. I'm high on my own testosterone.
Ah, thanks guys. I had a feeling it was a scam to get me to buy those herbal pills but i just wasn't sure and it was worrying me. Thanks for the help guys!
Not sure about the floater explanation, but masturbation won't cause them, unless you bang your head into the wall while you're doing it. Floaters are actually stuff floating inside the eye, in the vitreous fluid.Eye FloatersThey may also be old cell remnants.
