Every young person masturbates, which is a normal part of the growing process. This is when a person sexually self-stimulates their genitalia for fun and comfort. Children might rub themselves using their hands or something else, but it’s common for them to do so. Masturbation is more than just looking at your own genitalia.

It is an act that is meant to make you feel sexually aroused and meet your own sexual needs. A child who is masturbating for pleasure will usually act confused, flush, and busy while doing it. Depending on how much they want to act out their sexual fantasies, young teens might masturbate once a week or several times a day.

A child is more likely to masturbate when they are drowsy, bored, watching television, or under stress. When your child puts his hands down his pants or your little girl rocks on her tricycle seat, don’t immediately call your local psychologist. Instead, pause to reflect on why this topic makes you uncomfortable. Many adults have intensely painful jolts of guilt at the mere mention of “masturbation.” 

Nobody notices when a toddler tugs at his ear or strokes his arm. So why are parents worried and reprimanding the child who pulls his penis while ignoring the young guy who pulls his ear? They either think that genital stroking is a sure symptom of a psychiatric disorder or that genitalia is evil, mysterious, or off-limits. These are both untrue.

The majority of kids play with their genitalia; this is normal during childhood, typically between the ages of two and six. Adults object to genital fondling because we often see children’s behavior through an adult lens. 

Masturbation is normal

Masturbation is Normal

Masturbation is a common way for kids to explore these parts of their bodies and the good feelings they give them. As babies explore their bodies, they learn that some parts are more fun than others. Once these locations are known, those tiny hands are usually discovered there. A youngster enjoys having his or her genitalia massaged. It’s not “bad” or “filthy,” either. A child won’t start to worry and be perplexed until they hear these words from adults or sense their distress.

There is no need to chastise, blame, humiliate, or penalize kids for exploring or stimulating their genitalia because they aren’t doing anything “bad.” Avoid implying that these are undesirable bodily parts at all costs. When well-meaning but overzealous adults don’t handle early sexual worries well, it often leads to sexual hang-ups later on. Because they were shamed, scared, and punished as children for being gay, these parents may have never been able to accept their own sexuality.

Growing boys frequently engage in masturbation, especially lone men. According to recent studies, men who masturbate report feeling more confident, happier, and less worried. These elements may have an impact on your marital life. But it has been seen that as people get older, they get so busy with other things that they slowly stop self-masturbating without even realizing it.

Life is ever-changing, and for adults, it constantly throws up new challenges and interesting avenues into which these growing buddies can quickly escape. This is what we mean by maturing and growing up.

Having said that and cautioning let me reiterate that masturbating is a perfectly natural human process and a perfectly healthy sexual practice in men, not a harmful one. Men experience a very high level of sexual desire during adolescence. Masturbation is a technique to lessen the intensity of the climax. You can practice ejaculation and sexual experience to get ready for an adult sex life by knowing how to “self-address” in moderation.

Is excessive male masturbation acceptable?

Anything that is excessive in this world is abnormal and thus unacceptable. When something is done in excess, some counter-action is taken to balance the excess. When masturbation is done in excess, the body is bound to show some resistance in the form of disability or discomfort. Some defects appear after a period of time or after a prolonged addiction to the cause and may not be apparent right away.

Masturbation is the act of sexually stimulating oneself with one’s hands or other objects in order to elicit an orgasmic feeling and a sense of sexual fulfillment. Most men over 15 often masturbate because the hormone testosterone is so strong. Men mostly want satisfaction for this reason.

However, “selfie” behavior doesn’t just happen to teenagers; it also happens to married guys and older males.

Masturbation is a technique for older, unmarried guys to satisfy their sexual urges. Like sex, masturbation helps reduce feelings of worry, exhaustion, stress, and tension. It also stimulates the activity of the cardiovascular system, raises the breathing rate, and boosts metabolism. Men can inhibit their sexual drive by masturbating.

harm from excessive male masturbation

Masturbation directly affects one’s psychology. When men masturbate too much, they often become addicted to it and think about sex and “selfies” all the time. Masturbation, if it is too mild, can also be a factor in sexual deviation, which is the tendency to prefer exclusively those of the same sex to those of the other sex.

i) May Affect CNS

Frequent masturbation has a direct impact on the human central nervous system. Potential indicators of mental disease, such as weakness and memory loss, are brought on by this. Also, when they do things that go against social norms, many men who masturbate feel bad about it. Although there is much more open discussion about this topic currently, this does not mean that selfie users do not feel bad about their actions.

ii) May Decrease Sexual Interest

Masturbation decreases sex interest. Men will lessen or lose interest in “sex” with their spouse if they take frequent “selfies.” The reason is that they are used to giving themselves things to do in order to have fun. This situation’s long-term consequences will have a significant impact on married life, marriage, and family.

iii) May lower the standard of love 

If you masturbate too much or get an “addiction” to it, it can affect your mental health, make you less interested in sex, and even cause you to ejaculate early or cause other problems. Erectile dysfunction is a condition that negatively impacts sexual performance.

iv) may Create early Ejaculation leading to unsatisfaction

Men who masturbate often keep their minds in a state of excitement all the time, which slows down the part of the brain that controls sexual experience. At this point, ejaculation could happen early because the genitalia only needs a small impact to start the process. When people climax too quickly from masturbating too often, it leaves their partner unsatisfied, lowers the quality of their love life, and in the end, lowers the quality of their marriage.

v) Genitals may get damaged

Excessive hand-masturbation may also be harmful to the genitalia. One of the factors thought to contribute to male illnesses is masturbation. Men’s psychology, quality of life, and health are directly impacted by this aspect. Many often the development of the penis may get affected or may induce a curve penis o a deformed penis with excessive masturbation.

May Impact sexual prowess and fertility

Masturbation can impair sexual prowess and fertility. Men who have been masturbating for a long time require intense stimulation to ejaculate, which makes it difficult and creates male illnesses. impotence or even erectile dysfunction. 

vi) Reduction in sperm count

Also, people who masturbate too much often have a sperm count that is almost half that of healthy people, and their sperm are less likely to survive and move around. serious, so the quality of the sperm is weak or not good, which hurts the fertility and quality of the male race.

vii) May induce UTI

Prostate and urinary system illnesses can be brought on by mutilation. Masturbation can cause the spread of several pathogenic germs from the hands to the genitalia, which can result in urinary tract infections and other urinary system illnesses. urinary tract infection, chronic prostatitis, which frequently results in cloudy urine and has symptoms like lower abdominal and vaginal pain…

viii) May harm the Kidney

Excessive masturbation causes multiple ejaculations, which harm the kidney, which is essential for both male and physical development. So, the most dangerous thing about masturbation is the chance of getting diseases like severe kidney disease.

Advise for male masturbation

To make “selfies” safe, male experts advise paying attention to the following concerns when leading men through the masturbation process: Masturbation that happens between two and three times a week, which is the most that can be allowed, and Sanitize your hands and genitalia. To prevent damaging the genitals, perform the manipulation with care and gentleness.

Take a selfie when you’re at your calmest and most at ease; masturbating when you’re anxious or terrified of getting caught is never a good idea. Select “selfie” poses and formats that make you feel comfortable and appropriate. select private areas for masturbation. 

Don’t, or only occasionally, view sexy movies while masturbating. Masturbation should be combined with a rational and logical lifestyle, diet, and rest. If you have strange symptoms while masturbating, you should go to the emergency room at a hospital or clinic. You may also seek help from your family physician, your sexologist, or a sex consultant to learn about all the available treatments and avoid any physical or mental repercussions.

Religious Viewpoint

Masturbation is considered to be wrong by several religions. We have no desire to contest this way of thinking or set of values. Simply put, parents of babies or young children who don’t do sexual things themselves out of moral obligation need to be careful about how they handle this situation. As the youngster gets older, he will have plenty of opportunities to learn how to appreciate his genitalia in a religious sense.

Strategies to Address Child Masturbation

Even though genital stimulation is a normal thing for kids to do, it can be annoying to parents and, if done too much, can be annoying to kids as well. Here are some ways to keep a regular action from turning into a bad habit:

1. Typical Childhood Plaything

Recognize that it is natural sexual growth to desire to use one’s body parts for pleasure. Even though enjoying your body parts helps you become sexually healthy and like your body, masturbation does not require you to have a good opinion of yourself. So, touching one’s private parts occasionally isn’t dirty, dangerous, or a sign of a deeper emotional problem or bad parenting. For the majority of young children, it’s an ongoing discovery that they enjoy. That’s all there is to it.

2. When Masturbation Turns Into a Problem

Girls could get urinary tract infections if they rub their genitalia against something hard, like the saddle of a toy horse, too much and too hard. This could hurt the opening of the urinary tract and cause urinary tract infections. As with any form of self-pleasure, it’s normal to have habits that give you a break from the norm, a quick way to get rid of boredom, a need for comfort, or a chance to let off some steam once in a while. It becomes abnormal if the person becomes so reliant on this kind of self-gratification that he or she stops looking for alternative methods to feel good.

Girls could get urinary tract infections if they rub their genitalia against something hard like the saddle of a toy horse too much and too hard. This could hurt the opening of the urinary tract and cause urinary tract infections. However, medical problems from genital stimulation are uncommon. (Girls’ shorter urethras make this less likely to be a problem.) As long as little hands are clean, manual stimulation won’t hurt tissues unless the youngster purposefully hurts themselves as a result of the compulsive intensity it causes. Parents should take action as a result of this alert.

3. Do it in private 

Anjali, your dear aunt, is seated in your living room. Neelam, a four-year-old, is clearly seen as she climbs up the couch’s arm. She starts to wiggle, and soon her face is beaming with joy. People in the room start to blush. Adults feel embarrassed when they see someone masturbating. Tell your child in a matter-of-fact way that anything that has to do with her “private parts,” like going to the bathroom, is private. Don’t judge her behavior.

Take advantage of the opportunity to teach your child by saying, “Go do it where I can’t see you—it makes people uncomfortable.” The youngster will typically decide to halt the activity so that he or she can remain close to you. People often have to put off their own wants or feelings in order to show respect for the feelings of others. The best thing to do is to quickly change the child’s focus to something that is more acceptable in society.

4. Help young children develop balanced self-esteem

Children who are happy with themselves on a variety of levels (at home, with friends, at school, and in extracurricular activities) are less likely to turn to frequent genital stimulation. Ranveer, age six, was going through a period of having a negative self-image. He didn’t get along with his family or friends, nor did he seem to fit in at school or in social situations. 

Ranveer’s mother noticed him spending more and more time in his room, especially at night. Unaware that he was in his room one day, his mother opened the door and found him masturbating. She quickly closed the door after making the correct decision to do so, then went downstairs before breaking down and telling the child’s father, “I caught him doing that.”

Because the mother cared about her son’s pride, she didn’t want to shame him, so she and his father agreed to meet with Ranveer later. Ranveer’s mother referred to his penis as “your tiny self” during their conversation (which was not a conflict). Ranveer’s father skillfully changed the word “penis” to one that his wife and kid were familiar with. 

 Did they speak of “the act,” instead emphasizing Ranveer’s separation from the family as the issue that needed to be resolved rather than what he had done? They assisted Ranveer in becoming more at ease in the days and weeks that followed, both with family members and with activities outside the home. He started to leave his room with the door closed less frequently.

Children who are constantly bored typically seek stimulation from their bodies. Keep young children’s bodies and minds busy. Casually divert them from their self-interests into other pursuits when the tiny girl starts rocking or the little guy sticks his hands in his pants.

5. Avoid using fear tactics

The following are some terrifying myths about masturbation that were once spread by adults: “You’ll develop warts on your hands if you keep doing it.” You will become blind. Stop doing that; you’ll become sick.

Children may have stopped doing it because they were scared, but it also made them feel bad about themselves, hurt their self-esteem, and gave them bad ideas about sexuality. Advice on other sexual topics also fell under suspicion once kids realized these threats weren’t real.

6. Offer sage advice

If you step in to stop child masturbation, you must follow through with sound counseling.  If your child is old enough, try the following strategy (dads should speak with their sons and mothers with their daughters): “Ramesh, your penis is a healthy part of your body, and it feels nice to play with it.” When I was younger, I did this a little bit. But if you do these things too much, they keep you from finding other fun things to do. 

What kinds of activities do you want to do? What do you want to accomplish as a group? These discussions are an instructive opportunity. Even though these talks may be uncomfortable for the parents, they are good for the child’s developing sexuality and can teach them a lot. and children.

7. Hire a Consultant

If you feel uncomfortable talking to your child about sexuality—as many parents do—your youngster will probably infer from your body language and your tense words that sex is a taboo subject. Ask your child’s doctor to look into the issue as part of a checkup if your child regularly masturbates. I’ve been asked to do this by hundreds of angry parents over the years. I agree, but with the caveat that if a parent gives a replacement control over something important, the parent doesn’t get the chance to grow as a leader and advisor.

The doctor or other advisors should talk about this as part of a regular conversation about sexuality, not in an accusatory way. Otherwise, the kids may feel that the parent is squealing at them. Reminding the regular masturbator to be careful not to rub their vulva too forcefully is a good idea.

Masturbation for self pleasure

8. Dispense different tension-releasing agents

Seema, a six-year-old girl, came to me for help because she always masturbated so much before bed that it hurt. Her astute mother correctly deduced that the habit served as a stress reliever. We were able to help Lara by figuring out what was causing her stress and giving her more ways to deal with it. 

This child’s life has recently been very stressful due to a recent move, a new school, and new friends. Her parents gave her back rubs and put on calming music as she dozed off to help her cope with adjusting to these changes. Not only did she stop masturbating as much, but she also learned how important parents are as a support system during hard times.


When discussing masturbation, some people may feel embarrassed, guilty, or humiliated. Masturbation, however, is not wrong, healthy, or something to be ashamed of. Masturbation won’t make you blind or harm your physical or mental health. Masturbation frequently has more positive than negative consequences for health.

The only time masturbation becomes an issue is when it starts to affect one’s everyday life and relationships with friends, family, coworkers, and romantic partners. In some cases, it may be helpful to talk to a medical professional, especially a sex therapist.
