I'm freakin out because this is how i masterbate twice a day!Is it true?:You can hurt yourself if you masturbate in a face-down position. Masturbation should be performed on your back, although you can try it sitting or standing once you've learned it on your back. Masturbating face-down puts too much pressure on your penis and might cause problems when you someday try to have sex with a partner. This is a troublesome condition called Traumatic Masturbatory Syndrome, or TMS. If you masturbate face-down, you need to stop and learn to do it face-up.
Is this true?
"Traumatic Masturbatory Syndrome"...sounds nonsensical.Jackinworld.com's Q&A says:In reply to:There is a Web site that talks about "traumatic masturbatory syndrome" — they indicate that masturbating hands-free and prone, or face-down, is the road to sexual ruin. I've masturbated prone on the mattress and floor for years and loved it. Am I ruined? Is there any validity to this traumatic masturbatory syndrome, and if so, how come there aren't more men incapable of partnered sex?I'm not sure what to think about "traumatic masturbatory syndrome." We actually used to have an article about it here on JackinWorld — it was a summary of a paper published in 1998 in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy. As I recall, the article discussed masturbating not only hands-free and face-down but also without an erection. (Yes, it is possible for some men to reach orgasm without ever getting erect.) However, other than that one article, there have been no other papers or studies relating to "traumatic masturbatory syndrome," which suggests that the whole thing may be a crock. As for the Web site you mentioned, there is one guy on the Web who seems motivated to spread the word about this supposedly dangerous practice, endlessly citing that one article. I'd say that if you masturbate hands-free and face-down, you'd be better off doing it to orgasm only with an erection; it makes some sense that being accustomed to reaching orgasm by thrusting a non-erect penis in an intercourse-like position could lead to erectile-dysfunction problems later on. But otherwise, until we hear more about "traumatic masturbatory syndrome," I wouldn't worry about it.
