  • Pleasuring yourself is common with over

  • 50% of woman and 70% of men masturbating on

  • a monthly basis.

  • But what would you, just, completely stopped masturbating

  • forever?

  • after a week male testosterone levels go up by 40%

  • or at least that is what a 2003 study found

  • Which caught worldwide media attention

  • And in part lead to the no fap community

  • fapping being slang for masturbating

  • supporters of the no fap movement

  • also claim improved sexual performance and high sperm quality

  • along with feelings of improved motivation

  • self-esteem and happiness

  • but how valid are all these claims?

  • what most media did not mention is that

  • while the study did see increased testosterone

  • it went back down to normal levels

  • on day 8 with no explanation.

  • other abstinence studies have found no difference

  • at all in testosterone levels between those who masturbated and those who abstained

  • suggesting that other variables like

  • changing diet and exercise

  • which also impact testosterone

  • may more likely be the cause for any changes found

  • in people who stopped masturbating

  • in terms of sexual performance

  • abstinence from masturbation

  • does not seem to improve premature ejaculation either

  • after three weeks of no masturbation

  • a study found that participants

  • had roughly the same ejaculation time as those

  • that did not masturbate

  • and as for sperm quality

  • it turns out that those who ejaculated more frequently

  • had sperm that were stronger swimmers

  • which improves chances of fertilization

  • in fact this is one theory behind why not masturbating

  • for extended periods of time

  • may lead to more nocturnal admissions

  • or wet dreams

  • as a mechanism to cycle out old sperm

  • 83% of men and 37% of women

  • have experienced a wet dream at least once

  • but the evidence for why is still in- conclusive

  • as there haven't been many studies given

  • the awkward nature of studing

  • people orgasm in their sleep

  • apart from this for men when sperm isn't ejaculated

  • it can be broken down and the nutrients are recycled

  • back inside the body

  • Now masturbation addiction is a real thing

  • and curbing the habit can potentially

  • impact your motivation, self-esteem and happiness

  • masturbation can increase dopamine and serotonin

  • neurotransmitter release which stimulates the reward

  • pathway in the brain

  • the only issue is that constant masturbation

  • leads to constant release of serotonin and dopamine

  • which leads to our brain becoming desensitized

  • to these specific neurotransmitters

  • our brain would then require a higher level of

  • dopamine and serotonin

  • to obtain normal levels of happiness and motivation

  • so if you stop masturbation you then

  • allow the brain to become sensitive to

  • dopamine and serotonin again

  • but the science behind masturbation

  • shows that it can improve sleep

  • reduce stress & pain and improve your immune system

  • along with sleuth of other health benefits

  • which we covered in another video on masturbation here

  • in men it can even reduce prostate cancer risk

  • of course these studies investigated primarily the

  • experiences of men and currently there is a lack of

  • evidence to suggest that polishing the pearl

  • is anything but beneficial to women

  • so if you wantto stop masturbating for personal reasons

  • Go for it

  • some say it helped their lives

  • but for most, in moderation

  • masturbation is a healthy activity with some genuine

  • scientific benefits

  • if you want know even more masturbation's healthy effects

  • we just uploaded the newest episode of our

  • podcast sidenote to youtube for the first time

  • where we have a scientific debate about masturbation
