Can Masturbation Make Your Penis Smaller


Masturbation is a sexual act that involves self-sexual stimulation of the genitals for sexual arousal and sometimes up to the point of achieving an orgasm. The act of sexual stimulation is usually done by hand, fingers, or with sex toys such as vibrators or dildos.

Planned-parenthood organization recently reported a rising number of cases of men seeking medical consultation due to the shrinking of their penises. Many of them had one thing in common; they regularly masturbated. Click here to view a program that I recommend on improving the length the penis.

This new information got me thinking, can masturbation make your penis smaller? Yes, masturbation can make your penis smaller if done excessively and is generally caused by penile tissue damage either through a process known as Atrophy which is the wasting away of body tissue which in our case is the aggressive physical force caused by a hand during masturbation or penis trauma.

Causes of Masturbation

Between the ages of 11 – 13, boys’ testosterone levels are on the overdrive, and he starts looking at girls differently. The scent of estrogen from the girls and their expanding breasts provide an extraordinary sexual attraction for the boys, and masturbation provides the avenue of the release of this sexual urge built up over time.

I have summarized the causes of masturbation below:

  • Hormones that trigger the healthy development of genitals
  • Having sexual urges and thoughts
  • Unavailability of a satisfactory sexual partner at that time
  • Unwillingness to restrain acting on those sexual urges until such a time a satisfactory partner is available.

Benefits of Masturbation

Masturbation is a normal and healthy sexual activity. Research done on sexual stimulation has shown that masturbation many benefits as listed below:

  • Releases sexual tension built up over time
  • Reduces stress by releasing ‘feel good’ hormones
  • Improves self-esteem and body image
  • Relieves menstrual cramps and muscle tension
  • Strengthens muscle tone in your pelvic and anal areas
  • Couples can agree to masturbate together to explore different desires and to avoid pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Helps you sleep better

Side Effects of Masturbation

Masturbation doesn’t have any harmful severe side effects, apart from the general feeling of guilt depending on an individual cultural and religious upbringing. Below are some of the side effects of masturbation.

Guilt Feelings

The people, who subscribe to cultural, spiritual and religious beliefs that view masturbation as something immoral, will have guilty feelings when engaging in the act and this affects their self-esteem and how they see themselves within their communities.

Addiction

Some people can develop an addiction to masturbation, which would eventually affect their ability to become productive members of society. Spending too much time masturbating can cause you to:

  • Skip your daily chores and activities
  • Miss work, school and even essential events you had earlier planned to attend

Nutrient Deficiency

Studies have shown that excessive masturbation can cause a nutrient deficiency in a variety of essential nutrients responsible for the growth of genitalia such as zinc, acetylcholine and nitric oxide which is extremely useful in opening up blood vessels that take blood into the penis.

Controlling Masturbation

If you feel you would have an addiction to masturbation, consult a counselor or therapist to work out the root causes of the problem. You can cut down the time you spend masturbating by replacing it with other activities such as:

  • Going for a walk or jogging
  • Writing in your journal
  • Get out and spend time with your friends

Factors That Can Cause a Man to Have a Small Penis

There are many factors that can cause a man to have a small penis. While some factors can be prevented, others that there isn’t much you can do about it.

Circumcision

Circumcision can cause a man’s penis to shrink due to the scaring that occurs when the foreskin is removed from the penis. Skin and penile tissue that has been scarred becomes less elastic, and this is what causes the shrinking in size of the penis. However, circumcision has several benefits that over-ride its effects of making your penis smaller such as:

  • Decreased risk of urinary tract infections
  • Reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STIs)
  • Protects against penile cancer in men and cervical cancer in women

Penis Injuries

Injuries on your penis such as burns or scarring can cause your penis to become smaller. Scarring of your penis can occur when your manhood gets caught in your zipper or when you perform excessive masturbation, and your penile tissue and skins get injured since they’re both sensitive.

The most common of burns on the penis occurs in the kitchen when a man is cooking stew, and he accidentally pours the hot stew on his boxers or light trousers.

Low Testosterone

Testosterone is the male hormone produced by your testicles that stimulates the growth of male sexual characteristics and is responsible for the development of increased muscle mass and genitalia.  Having low testosterone levels at the puberty may hamper the growth of a man’s penis resulting in a smaller penis even when fully erect.

Drug and Substance Abuse

Drug and substance abuse affects the growth of your sexual organs such as the penis and testicles. It affects your ability to have or maintain an erection for sexual intercourse. Some of the drugs and substance abuse that can result in your penis shrinking include:

  • Excessive use of marijuana
  • Alcoholism
  • Opioids
  • Cocaine

Genetics

You can’t rule out genetics when it comes to the size of your penis. Some communities in certain parts of the world have been known to have larger than average penis sizes while others have been known to have small penises.

Exposure to Harmful Chemical and Radiation

If a pregnant woman expectant with a male child is exposed to harmful to chemicals and radiation, it can impede the growth of the fetus genitalia, especially the penis.  Radiation from x-ray machines and nuclear waste materials may damage blood vessels such as nerves and articles in your pelvic area responsible for supplying blood to the penis, therefore hampering its growth.


Penis Trauma

Penis fractures occur when the penis is fully erect and get injured during activities such as: rolling over the bed with an erect penis, hitting your erect penis against something such as a door or furniture among others. These injuries can cause a decrease in penis size and function.

Be Creative and Switch Your Body Position

Who says that masturbation must be done in only position all the time? Add some excitement to the experience and switch positions. Sometimes you can do it standing, other times you can try leaning against a counter wall with your hips pushed forward, while others you can try lying down either on your bed or sofa. Remember, whatever position you choose, you must be comfortable in it.

Practice Hygiene
Hygiene is essential when it comes to masturbation. Wash your hands with soap, preferably one that has got anti-bacterial properties before touching your penis. Don’t also forget to clean your sex toys before and after use as this prevents harmful bacteria build-up and infections.

Don’t Forget the Lube

Get yourself a good lubricant. Silicone or water-based lubes are the best. Lubricants are essential in reducing friction and preventing penis injuries such as penile tissue tears and scarring.
