Is masturbating bad for my body?

Är det dåligt för kroppen att onanera? - engelska

Question

I’ve heard that masturbating is bad for your body and that it makes you weak and sick. Is that true? Can it be harder to have children if you masturbate? 

Answer

No, masturbating isn’t bad for your body. It won’t make you weak or sick. It will not make it harder for you to have children. Masturbation isn’t bad for your body or your health in any way.

Even if you’ve heard others say that it is bad for you, that is not correct at all. I would say that it’s a good way to have sex. There are many advantages to masturbating:

  • It helps you learn what you think feels good.
  • It’s an easy way to get sexual satisfaction.
  • You don’t need to have a partner to masturbate.

Nearly everyone masturbates. Some do it often, some do it less often. But nearly everyone does it.
