Prone Masturbation - What It Is and Why You Need to Stop Doing It

As sexual attitudes become more liberal in Indian society, many men turn to prone masturbation, or simulating sexual acts to simulate sexual intercourse, and enhance sexual pleasure. However, some types of masturbation are dangerous because they can lead to sexual dysfunction, lower sexual performance, and other sexual problems. Prone masturbation is one such example.

What is prone masturbation anyway?

Prone masturbation relies the man stimulating the penis while lying on his stomach with his hand, pillow, mattress, or sex toys. It is estimated that approximately 10% of males engage in prone masturbation.

How prone masturbation can damage the penis in the long-term

Because prone masturbation places tremendous pressure on the penis base, it can make its participants have a hard time achieving an orgasm - a condition known as anorgasmia. Nearly 60% of prone masturbators have reported anorgasmia - a real sexual problem.  Additionally, prone masturbation can make it harder for men to have erect penises - approximately 33% of prone masturbators have trouble with erectile dysfunction.

How do prone masturbators stop and reverse any potential damage

The first step to accomplishing this is to completely stop engaging in prone masturbation and resume with traditional ways of masturbation. Once engagers have completed this step, they can turn to herbal remedies to treat the nerve and tissue damage leading to penile damage. Perfect examples of herbal remedies are Astragalus Membranaceus, Cornus Officinalis, and Opiopogon, which are completely safe herbal remedies which work wonders in terms of stopping and reversing penile damage from prone masturbation.

Many people engage in prone masturbation without realizing or being aware of its long-term damaging effects on their sex lives because they think that it is the best simulant for the pleasures that sexual intercourse bring.

However, sex does not destroy the penile base or lead to major sexual problems, if anything, its stimulation may strengthen the penis and make sex more pleasurable. It is for these reasons, along with the reasons mentioned above that no man should engage in prone masturbation because of its dangers to his sexual health and pleasure.
