Yes, it does. Excessive maturation has a negative event on the hardness. Guys who are addicted to masturbation usually have hard erections when they masturbate or their partners masturbate for them. However, I've found the erections are not that hard when it comes to penetration sex for the guys addicted to masturbation. Moreover, guys addicted to masturbation find penetrative sex to be less satisfying. Sign In.
Porn and ED: What You Need to Know
If Joseph Gordon-Levitt's stint as an obsessive porn addict in Don Jon taught us anything, it's that certain masturbating habits can wreak havoc on your sex life. A new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine just revealed that men who have unusual masturbation habits—defined as techniques that cannot be easily recreated by a partner's hand, mouth or vagina—may experience a variety of sexual problems. These men also expressed frustration over the sex they were having with their partners. In fact, their sexual dysfunctions included everything from loss of sensation and low sex drive to erectile dysfunction and difficulty achieving orgasm. Doctors and sex therapists assigned to these cases prescribed a period of abstinence from masturbation, followed by "masturbatory retraining" a sexual intervention which included replacing old masturbation rituals with practices that simulate intercourse and time spent focusing on sensations of pleasure during sex with their partners.
Masturbation does not directly cause erectile dysfunction in men. This idea overlooks some of the complexities of masturbation and the physical and mental causes of erectile dysfunction, many of which have nothing to with masturbation or porn. One study looked at the case of a man who believed that his masturbation habits caused him to be unable to get an erection and consummate his marriage, which nearly led to a divorce. He was eventually diagnosed with major depressive disorder. This diagnosis, along with sexual education and marital therapy, allowed the couple to establish a sexual relationship within a few months. Some research suggests that frequently masturbating to porn can contribute to ED by desensitizing you to certain imagery and physical intimacy.
