can masturbation affect a man’s erectile ability?;I’m a christian, i don’t indulge in sexual activities, except masturbation. what advice can you give?
Chuks - I’m not a physician but the conventional wisdom out there seems to be that masturbation does not cause any physical harm that will interfere with the ability to have an erection. However, there does seem to be some sentiment that masturbation with the use of pornographic images may interfere with the ability to achieve an erection with a partner unless it’s part of foreplay. There are a couple of links out there on the connection between masturbation and ED that you might find interesting.
