Still, there are many myths about how harmful masturbating can be. The reality is that there are numerous benefits and side effects to masturbation.
Although no real physical damaging side effects from masturbation have been found, there are a few things to keep in mind. Anything done in excess can have a negative impact one way or the other. Some people may experience guilt after playing with themselves. Others are chronic masturbators and may spend a great deal of time viewing pornography to help them do so. The one negative side effect is the feeling of shame and guilt after doing it. The guilty feelings may be due to a person’s religious, cultural or spiritual beliefs.
