Over the years we have been hearing a so much different things about masturbation that we might have ended up being confused. Don’t be. Here are 7 myths about masturbation that are absolutely over-exaggerated.
Masturbation At A Very Young Age
It has been instilled in many since their adolescence that it is absolutely unethical and sinful to indulge in any sexual activity such as masturbation. Why? Because orthodox beliefs say that masturbating since adolescence he/she is sexually hyperactive and addicted of sex. It does not affect your sex-drive or libido in your adulthood; in fact, you get an early head-start to explore your sexual side.
It Kills Sex Drive
One of the silliest myths about masturbation is that it kills sex drive or mellow down one’s libido. In fact, masturbation helps you understand what really makes your click sexually, what are your likes dislikes, etc. This will help you tell your partner exactly what and how you need.
It’s Not Meant For Women
Probably THE stupidest myth about masturbation is that it is not meant for women. What a nutcase he/she would seem to be while stating this! In fact, women LOVE masturbation because we know what and how we want. And doesn’t it feels wonderful to give it to ourselves?
It Has An Age Limit
Another myth says that masturbation should stop at a certain age.

A Lot Of It Is Unhealthy
This myth might go on the line of ‘too much of anything – until the brink of insanity – will definitely result in you being locked up in a mental asylum ward’. But it does not limit to masturbation at all. It is simply about anything and everything. Even drinking too much of water is unhealthy but that does not mean that water is unhealthy too. One must definitely go for masturbation if he/she wants to satiate arousal on his/her own.
It’s Wrong To Masturbate When In A Committed Relationship
What a silly thing to talk about! Masturbation is such a natural process that, with or without a partner, if one feels like doing it, he/she does it! It’s as simple as drinking water when thirsty (though preferably in utter privacy). No matter how good your partner is in bed, it does not define your fidelity in your relationship in any angle. In fact, there are many committed couples who enjoy knowing and/or watching their partners masturbate.
Masturbation Does Not Give You The ‘Real Thing’
Real thing or not, masturbation will make one feel really good. If the definition of ‘real thing’ is an intense sex act with a partner, then obviously masturbation does not fall into the category for obvious reasons. But it is also true – ‘When you want it, you want it’… Alone or with matter, does it really matter? *Wink*
