Long term involvement in masturbation may become an emotional problem. Depression, low self-esteem, confusion about sexuality, guilt, shamefulness and sexual problems such as erectile disability are observed among people resorting to excessive and prolonged masturbation. . This habit is also known as “Self-Abuse”.
Masturbation is not a physical abnormality, however excessive masturbation is wrong, because it is a misuse of sexual powers and frequent masturbation with excessive and vigorous behaviour (handling) may lead to weakening of tissues in the blood veins, which manifests as *erectile* dysfunction, do not give excessive stress on the penile structure by bending or subjecting it to excessive friction by lying on the stomach. Such condition can potentially create damages to veins in the penis.
There is hardly any young man who does not masturbate at one time or the other. The self-abuse is the prime cause of various sexual disorders and it is one of the earliest abuses when a boy engages himself in this evil act. Masturbation has serious consequences since it drains the young men of his vital forces and in many case it causes impotency, if it is over-indulged. Therefore, parents are advised to keep a watch on their children against all possible factors which can tempt their children to masturbate.
The main cause is bad company, where children hear and discuss sexual topics and in the bad society they themselves engaged in masturbation collectively without any shame. This is the very first and wrong step which leads to many bad practices to play with the immature sexual organs at the very tender age. Since this evil act gives intense pleasure, they keep on doing quite regularly without knowing the adverse effects of the masturbation in the future to come. If this practice is over done, it ruins the matrimonial lives due to impotency.
