Is it excessive to masturbate 4 or 5 times a week?
It’s great to masturbate regularly and 4 or 5 times a week is nowhere near being a problem. In fact, there’s some solid research showing that men’s prostate health is helped by ejaculating between 5 and 7 times a week.
It’s a lot easier to tell a partner what you like if already know. Women who masturbate regularly to orgasm tend to have higher desire than those who don’t. The vagina is kept at optimum health through regular lubrication, best achieved via masturbation.
It doesn’t matter if you’re male, female or other, masturbation is a positive and healthy thing to do for your mood, confidence and sexual knowledge, once you enjoy it.
For all people, there are helpful and not so helpful ways to masturbate. Many people develop masturbatory styles when young and stick to them. This can be limiting if they tend towards fast and furious action. It’s always fun to try new techniques, toys, lubes, positions and even places.
As with any behaviour, masturbation is only a problem if your work, social life, finances or health are being impacted negatively. Otherwise, you have my blessing!
