Mental Effects Of Over Masturbation

Question:

Dear Dr. Lin,

I think I might be over-sexed as I am experiencing many of the negative symptoms, including poor concentration, slowly deteriorating eyesight, mood swings, anxiety, uncomfortable sleep, un-pleasurable and undesired arousal, loss of patience, and sleeping more than 9 hours a day.

I have been masturbating since 12 and did it quite frequently about 6 times a week. I went to see a psychiatrist for mild depression symptoms and he said it was due to stress and other factors, but I would like to think it's from being over-sexed.

Whenever I stop masturbating for more than 3-5 days in a row, I tend to feel some sort of relief and serenity and my sex drive will feel more pleasurable.

Although I have this condition, I believe I have not destroyed my sex organs, as I still can have an ejaculation of up 0.5-1 meters in height and an erection angle of 1-2 o'clock (that's when I refrain from masturbating for at least 3 days). But I believe I might have spoiled my brain's neuro-chemical balance.

Right now I'm on 1000 mg fish oil a day, spirulina, vitamin C, colustrum and RO water, and I believe this had also help relieve the symptoms a little.

Judging by my condition, how would you advise my sexual practice to be from now if I desire to fully recover into a 'full person'? Will I be able to recover completely as if nothing happened? Will I be able to practice the penile ballooning technique and multiple orgasms so I won't burn out my brain and body anymore? Please advise me. Thank you for taking the time.

Answer:

It does sound like you are fundamentally healthy as it pertains to sexual function, judging by your erection angle and ejaculation power. And since you experience relief from your symptoms by refraining from masturbation, it seems apparent you are suffering from sexual exhaustion as a result of over-masturbation. Your ability to fully recover depends on your age and other factors, such as diet. But yes, you should receive tremendous benefit from reduced masturbation and practicing penile ballooning.

Let's start with how your body responds during normal sexual activity. The adrenal glands and sex organs produce androgen hormones which stimulate sexual function in men and are the precursor to the female hormone estrogen. The hypothalamus releases the neurohormone dopamine which results in sexual arousal. When you feel sexually aroused, the brain releases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine into the bloodstream in the sex organs. Then acetylcholine causes the endothelium in the blood vessels and in the spongy penis chambers to produce an enzyme called nitric oxide synthase that helps to produce the gas nitric oxide. This is derived most commonly from the amino acid arginine or, alternatively, from nitrogen compounds in foods. Nitric oxide then triggers the release of yet another enzyme-induced neurotransmitter, cGMP. At the command of cGMP, the blood vessels relax, permitting increased blood inflow to the penis. As the chambers of the penis engorge, the sudden surge of blood into those chambers exerts pressure on the veins. Now inflow is greater than outflow, and the penis remains erect so long as there is a continuous production of cGMP mediated by nitric oxide. A very similar sequence is involved in lubrication and vaginal and clitoral engorgement in women. As sexual activity intensifies, the neurotransmitter GABA is released, increasing dopamine levels and ultimately igniting a euphoric feeling and increasing sensations during orgasm.

At the end of sexual activity, cGMP is disabled by the enzyme PDE5, and nitric oxide production decreases, causing the penis to return to its flaccid state or female sex organs to return to normal. The anti-inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E-1 is released to relax tissue and muscle fiber and calm the body after sex. The pituitary gland releases the hormone and neurotransmitter oxytocin to induce a sense of sexual satisfaction after sex or orgasm. The pituitary gland also releases the hormone prolactin to repress the effect of dopamine, thus reducing sexual arousal by decreasing the levels of estrogen in women and testosterone in men. The brain also releases the neurotransmitter serotonin to modulate sexual desire.

All of these processes, however, break down when you engage in too much sex, masturbation, pornography viewing, or sexual fantasy, and especially when a man over-ejaculates. Excessive sexual activity and over-ejaculation lead to overproduction of androgen hormones, causing adrenal and sex organ fatigue, and excess release of dopamine to maintain prolonged sexual arousal. Since dopamine is the precursor to the stress hormone epinephrine (adrenaline), excess dopamine results in the adrenal glands overproducing epinephrine and putting the body in a prolonged state of fight-or-flight stress. At the same time, norepinephrine is synthesized from dopamine and released from the adrenal medulla into the blood as a hormone, along with the stress hormone cortisol. Epinephrine, norepinephrine and cortisol fuel the fight-or-flight response, directly increasing heart rate, triggering the release of glucose from energy stores, and increasing blood flow to skeletal muscle. All of this has a severely taxing effect on the body.

The hormone prostaglandin E-2, which serves an important function in sexual arousal, is also overproduced and has an inflammatory effect on the body, damaging tissues, nerves and joints, weakening immunity, causing muscular and nervous pain, and promoting infection, inflammation, and even cancer. Chronic elevation of epinephrine and prostaglandin E2 results in severe damage to brain cells and parasympathetic nerves in the liver, lungs, adrenal glands, heart, blood vessels, digestive system, pancreas, gallbladder, ovaries, uterus, cervix, testicles and prostate. As a result, you can experience a variety of symptoms, including depression, anxiety, bodily pains, vision problems, persistent sexual arousal and sexual dysfunction such as impotence and premature ejaculation in men and a lack of sexual stimulation in women.

All of this over-activity and stress causes the pituitary gland and testicles (ovaries in women) to become disabled for a few days or even months, leading to a long refraction time or a long-term sexual exhaustion and inflammation. First, you may feel your muscles and joints become very tight and rigid upon ejaculation. An extremely exhausted adrenal function can cause an extreme low level of DHEA and cortisol, resulting in fatigue and pains throughout the body, including the back. The pain becomes severe at about 2-4 hours after ejaculating due to the sudden drop of DHEA, testosterone and DHT. You may experience pains for a couple of days until your prolactin and cortisol levels are returned to their normal ranges.

In order to reverse the ill-effects of excessive sexual activity, over-masturbation, or over-ejaculation, stop sexual activity for a few weeks. Let your body rest and replenish. Then you can come back to it with a lower frequency. A healthy habit is to ejaculate a total of three to four times a week.

ViaPal-HGH-P, ArginOx and fish oil (1000 mg each meal) will help you gradually rejuvenate your neuro-endocrine function and boost your prostaglandin E-1/E-3, oxytocin and nitric oxide production for erection and orgasm. American ginseng and maca help to rejuvenate your entire body. Horny goat weed and yohimbe will help increase flood flow and nutrient absorption for a harder erection and better ejaculation control. Damiana and saw palmetto will heal your prostate, which is responsible for producing and releasing semen and which is most likely overworked with your excessive sexual activity or masturbation.
