Masturbation increases oxytocin levels

1. Effect on the brain

The brain is taught a “solo” act in which messenger substances similar to those in real sex are released. Thus, real sex with a partner is stored in the brain as unnecessary and thus as unimportant. When done frequently, the brain and body come into a "solo" imprint.

2. Dependency

Daily to weekly masturbation naturally leads to physical and emotional addiction. The body releases certain messenger substances during orgasm. The physical desire for these substances increases. The body gets used to this excessive dose. The same act or frequency will no longer produce the same effect over time. Therefore, it often leads to an increasing frequency of daily masturbation.

3. Oxytocin

Oxytocin is released in the body during orgasm. It is also called the "attachment hormone" or the "cuddle hormone". This also happens when you masturbate. The question is, how does the bond come about at this moment? When masturbating to pornography, it is done with a virtual harem. If it takes place without pictures, then the bond with one's own body occurs. The body becomes something “self-exciting”. In both cases, this explains why it is so difficult to get away when a bond has been strengthened over the years by bodily hormones and substances. Interestingly, having sex with a beloved spouse increases the amount of oxytocin released significantly more.

4. Declining desire for real sex

The endocrine cycle after masturbation starts directly with a release of prolactin. Prolactin is a self-regulating hormone that regulates the “super feelings” in the body. Thus the libido decreases. Masturbation thus delivers a message that “man is full”. This reduces the desire for real sex with the partner. In addition, after each orgasm, testosterone rises from its low point to a plateau that is reached after seven days.

5. Decrease in emotional strength and creative productivity

Several studies show that abstaining from regular masturbation increases general emotional well-being. Concentration and satisfaction increase. Weakness, tiredness and irritability decrease. These studies also proved that productivity, creativity and concentration increased during periods of abstinence.

6. Social isolation

For singles, there is often no need to go out. This can have a negative impact on mental health. Inability to develop relationships and problems in establishing an emotional bond with other people can result.

7. Door opener to pornography

Masturbation is always a door opener for pornography and for the "head cinema". Sooner or later, masturbation leads to porn consumption.

8. "Speed ​​kills intimacy"

In the sexual relationship with the partner, masturbation is always the easier, more uncomplicated and faster way to orgasm. This path, taken over and over again, leads to the fact that one invests less in the development of true eroticism and pleasure with the partner. Enjoyment, eroticism and highlights always need time and personal investment. But masturbation teaches a "quick fix". When it comes to real sex with the partner, it is often fast and at the speed of the motorway towards the goal.

9. Weakened orgasm

Potency and stamina decrease drastically with regular masturbation. Thus, masturbating leads to a weakened orgasm and also reduces it during real sex. If you want good sex and an intense orgasm, you should stay away from masturbation. It has been proven that the prolactin release (self-regulating hormone that regulates the super feelings in the body's balance) is four times as high after real sex as compared to masturbation. The conclusion is obvious: orgasm is not the same as orgasm.

10. Premature ejaculation

"Quick and easy" leads to the disruption of premature ejaculation (PME - Premature Ejaculation). A phenomenon that has affected an increasing number of men over the last 20 years, which is estimated at 20%.

11. Erectile dysfunction

Excessive masturbation can lead to erectile dysfunction.
