Frequent Masturbation Increase Penis Size

Masturbation, or the act of the sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals for arousal and sexual pleasure, is known to every man. It is entirely normal to masturbate whether you’re sexually active with other people or not.

Even though masturbation is as old as us humans there is still a lot we don’t know about it. Numerous myths are linked with masturbation, some of them turn out to be accurate and others don’t.

One of these myths is that you can get a bigger penis if you masturbate frequently. Is that true? Let’s see!

Benefits Of Masturbation

We all masturbate, but at the same time, we are led to feel guilty for doing so. Masturbation is nothing you should be ashamed of, in fact, there are many benefits associated with it. Here are the most important benefits of masturbation:

Cancer Prevention– One of the most well-known benefits of masturbation is its ability to prevent prostate cancer. A study whose findings were published in the European Urology[1] revealed that frequency of ejaculation is linked to the development of prostate cancer.

Higher frequency of ejaculation lowers your risk of cancer while less frequent ejaculation enhances the prostate cancer risk.

Stronger Penis– As men age, they start losing muscle tone throughout their body, and the penis is not the exception. Regular masturbation activates pelvic floor muscles in order to prevent incontinence and erectile dysfunction.

Lasting Longer– Premature ejaculation is one of the most prevalent sexual dysfunctions in men. Although not life-threatening, premature ejaculation has a negative impact on a man’s self-esteem.

Masturbation helps men last longer by allowing them to understand what works for their penis and what doesn’t as well as how to control and prolong erections

Improves Mood– Masturbation releases feel-good chemicals that make you feel good after climax

Other important benefits of masturbation include:

  • Stress relief
  • Improved sleep
  • Better heart health
  • Increases lifespan
  • Stronger immune system

How Often To Masturbate?

Although masturbation is good for us and helps us learn more about our body, we have to wonder about the ideal frequency. Is there really a magic number of times you should masturbate a week in order to get the most out of it?
According to the International Society for Sexual Medicine[2], some people masturbate more frequently than the others and there is no normal frequency that you should strive to achieve. But, this doesn’t mean the more you masturbate, the better it is.

How to tell when you’re masturbating too much? If a man masturbates so much it affects his daily life, then it is a cause for concern.

When masturbation becomes a compulsive activity and interferes with social life, work, relationships, and irritates your genitals, it is the time to consult a sex therapist or a health care provider about the issue.

Masturbation And Penis Size

If you masturbate frequently your penis will grow larger. How many times have you heard or read something like this?

We want to believe in it because, let’s face it, every man wants to have a bigger penis and we also want the opportunity to increase it ourselves. Wishes are one thing and the possibilities are something entirely different.
Guys usually start masturbating in adolescent years and they do it multiple times during the week, depending on an individual of course.

So, you’ve been masturbating for quite some if you consider your current age and the age when you started doing it.

If masturbation really had the potential to increase penis size, all men would walk around with penises long enough to reach their knees.

Unless you’re the guy with the longest penis in the world[3], the length of your manhood is much smaller. Even his penis didn’t grow in size just because he masturbated frequently.

The reason why masturbation is thought to increase penis size is that when doing it, most men tug or stretch their penis in order to achieve an erection and make it harder.

The tugging maneuver resembles those exercises that are considered beneficial for penis size. Moreover, masturbation improves blood flow to the penis due to friction you create while tugging and stretching the manhood in order to achieve an orgasm.

In turn, you may notice your penis is somewhat bigger, but it is primarily due to swelling and the results aren’t long-term.

What’s more, there is no evidence whatsoever to confirm that frequent masturbation has any effect on penis size.

Trying to force your penis to grow bigger through excessive masturbation can only lead to uncomfortable consequences [4] which include bruising, scarring, and painful erections.

What Is Jelqing And Does It Increase Penis Size?

Pulling and Stretching Penis
Jelqing is a technique, similar to masturbation, considered highly effective in increasing penis size in an entirely natural manner with permanent results.

The technique was popularized by bloggers and members of different forums online and many guys jumped on a bandwagon without investigating whether it really works.

Advocates of the technique [5] claim that pulling and stretching penis regularly can cause the tissue to fill with blood and swell permanently, thus giving you bigger manhood. This seems too good to be true because it really is. The basic penis anatomy contradicts these claims!

Your penis is an organ, not a muscle that you can pump up with regular exercise. The size of an erect penis is determined by corpora cavernosa tubes. Corpora cavernosa are defined as two ligamentary and limber tubes united laterally to each other. Erections wouldn’t be firm if the tubes were able to be stretched.

Jelqing advocates explain the technique works by forcing blood to swell in the penis, thus forming pressure that leads to growth and expansion of penile tissue.

Doctors and scientists agree that this technique can’t enlarge your penis permanently. Shockingly, the entire process can only backfire[6] and desensitize penis.

Repeated jelqing can cause irritation, pain, tears in blood vessels, and formation of scars. Just like with masturbation, there is no evidence which confirms that jelqing can increase the size of one’s manhood.

It’s not just about masturbation and jelqing; at this point there are no strategies to increase the penis size permanently. Despite the popularity of different topics, no scientific evidence supports those claims.

Experimenting with different methods can only jeopardize your sexual and reproductive health. Even though it may seem pointless to you, never start with some tactic to get a longer penis without consulting your doctor first.

Do Dietary Supplements Work?

Male Dietary Supplements
You can get a dietary supplement for just about anything and there are a bunch of them for sexual and reproductive health. Some male enhancement products claim they can help users have a bigger penis in a matter of days or weeks.

The only thing you have to do is to purchase the product, which doesn’t come cheap, or maybe sign up to the automatic shipping program.

Although these products contain natural remedies, the truth is they fail to deliver what they promised.

Just take one of these products off of the shelves in the store, or look them up online. What you can notice is that they contain all sorts of herbs and plants to boost men’s sexual health and performance, but none of them have any kind of impact on penis size.

While these products, when purchased from reliable manufacturers, can improve your sex drive through higher testosterone levels, there is no evidence they can enhance the size of the penis.

Some brands also include ingredients that aren’t safe for our health, meaning you should be cautious when purchasing dietary supplements.

Masturbation Facts To Know

As seen above, masturbation is highly beneficial for you but it does nothing to increase penis size. The same thing happened with jelqing, a famous technique to improve the size of the penis.

Evidence doesn’t support those claims and if you repeat these maneuvers excessively, the only thing you can get is damage on the penis.

Of course, this doesn’t mean you should stop masturbating and avoid it all costs. Below, you can see interesting facts about masturbation itself:

  • May is an International Masturbation Month
  • In ancient Egypt, male masturbation was a popular concept and it was considered as a creative and magical act if performed by a god. In fact, ancient Egyptians believed Atum created the universe while masturbating
  • Masturbation prevents common male sexual disorders such as low libido
  • Masturbation makes you more creative
  • Masturbation increases confidence by allowing you to feel good in your body

Conclusion

Masturbation is an integral part of human nature, but there is still a lot we can learn about it. Even though we all masturbate, there are many myths about this act and one of them is its potential to enhance the size of the penis.

It is thought that tugging and stretching along with improved blow can drastically change the penis size.

That being said, there is no evidence to support those claims that masturbation has an impact on the size of the penis.
