Masturbating too much
Posted on: 03/02/2005
When I masturbate there is always a drop of cum after all the shots came out. This drop comes when my penis goes back to flaccid. Is it normal to still leak a drop afterwards. I just started to masturbate twice a day, is it healthy to do that? I'm 15. Yesterday after my second time (masturbating) my stomach and testicles ached for a while after. Am I overdoing it?
The soreness is from the tightening up. It is fairly common after masturbation and should go away. You have to be the one to decide what is too much. If masturbating is becoming all you can think about -- if you prefer it to being with friends, or you are ignoring homework, friends, family, chores, sports, music or other interests -- then yes, it may be excessive.
The other thing to think about is that the more you masturbate, the more sperm and semen your body will produce, building up and causing you to want to masturbate more.
