Does masturbation affect my muscle growth and size even if I keep my diet proper and exercise regularly?

Hi, Lybrate user, masturbation, twice a week is healthy but frequent attempts to it be hazardous to your health in future. Tk, care.

No. There is no correlation. It’s a myth. There are many myths about masturbation. Even though many of these have been debunked several times, they seem to resurface time and time again. Most claims about masturbation are not backed up by science. There is often no scientific evidence to show that masturbation causes any of the adverse effects suggested. Masturbation will not cause: blindness hairy palms impotence later in life erectile dysfunction penis shrinkage penis curvature low sperm count infertility mental illness physical weakness some couples worry that their relationship must be unsatisfying if either one of them masturbates; this, too, is a myth.
