This is a little bit of an odd post or at least it may seem like it at first but believe it or not I have had a number of hormonal teenage males ask me this over the last couple of months so decided to do a quick post on it. Since the beginning of time there is evidence that people masturbated. For many this was considered to be a normal activity. For others it was considered to be damaging. Some societies even thought masturbation would lead to spiritual damage. Many men have been exposed to myths and half truths about masturbation and were made to feel same for engaging in this activity. Some of these myths will be addressed proven to be untrue. There are also some male enhancement tips (see Penile Plus) on how to properly care for the penis and keep it in the best health.
Myth #1: Masturbation will lead to blindness
For centuries people have been saying that masturbation can cause blindness. Many societies used this to scare children and young adults away from self pleasure. There is no scientific evidence to show that masturbation leads to loss of sight.
Myth #2: Masturbation will lead to baldness
This may be somewhat reasonable. Masturbation along with sexual intercourse increased a testosterone level which has been linked with male baldness. Masturbation alone does not increase androgen levels so it will not make a man go bald.
Myth #3: Masturbation can cause excessive hair growth
Masturbation will not cause hair to grow on the palms. This was another scare tactic used to prevent males from masturbating. If most men including the ones reading this would have very hairy palms if this myth was true.
Myth #4: Masturbation can lead to infertility in males
If a man is masturbating and ejaculating it does make some sense that people would think he would lose semen leading to infertility. Once a man ejaculates it does take the body some time to replenish sperm. Men that do not ejaculate on a somewhat regular basis are actually less fertile.
Myth #5: Masturbation causes the muscles to become weak
In some cultures ejaculating alone can cause the men to become weak. People that are infrequent masturbators may feel tired when they are done. There is no scientific information to show that masturbation leads to muscle weakness. More than likely this was another scare tactic used to discourage masturbation.
