My friend use to mastiburate from 5 years. Now it has become a problem for him, he just can not control this habit. He just can not stay without it, he has to do it twice or thrice in a day. Any consultation for him how to control it n what are the disadvantage of it. Is it unhealthy for him? Will it affect his body? And can it be controlled?

Excessive masturbation around 5 to 6 times a day can get addictive and cause you loss of concentration in doing your regular activities and prevent you from doing your job and study. The appropriate masturbation frequency is 2 to 3 times a week and not more than once in a day. You can do other activities like listening to music, talking to friends and reading a book when you get masturbation thoughts. This will help you to control masturbation. There is no need to stop masturbation completely as it is a normal behavior when done within limits. Please do not worry.
