Does masturbating 2 times a day affect men’s sex lives? Does daily masturbation create health problems?

No, masturbation doesn’t affect health of a person. Also, there is no defined frequency of masturbation but excessive masturbation can lead to addiction which may lead to decreased sperm count and rarely, difficulty of erection (which is also only psychological).

Whenever I masturbate, my sperm releases fast. What to do that it releases late?

Immediate discharge of semen during masturbation should not be much of a concern but if during intercourse, there is an early discharge on multiple occasions, then one should see a doctor, preferably a urologist or andrologist.

My penis gets erect when I fantasize about males, but it erects slowly when I think about female partners. And when I masturbate it ejects very quickly (in 1.5 minutes). Is this normal?

Unless you have had sex with anyone, one can’t comment on the actual problem you may face during intercourse. For masturbation, there is no well-defined duration for discharge.

Does masturbating three or two times a day result in muscle loss?

No, excessive masturbation doesn’t lead to muscle loss or any health problem.

Is masturbation harmful for health if done once a week? And does it affect size of the penis?
Have questions on sexual health? Write to us at SexEd@thequint.com and we will get experts to answer them for you.

Masturbation once or even less a week has nothing to do with one’s health or size of the penis. But if done very infrequently, semen may be released by itself occasionally as nightfall.

My age is 20 and I have a habit of daily masturbation. Will it cause any deficiency in my sex life? Is daily masturbation a bad habit?

Excessive masturbation may decrease your sperm count later in life and transiently makes you feel exhausted. Some people may rarely experience difficulty in erection due to dependence on porn or fantasies which are then regularly required for their foreplay. So it’s better to avoid it on daily basis and try to concentrate on other daily activities or your job.
