Top Ten Reasons You Shouldn't Masturbate

The Top Ten

1 It can be addicting

The only valid item on this list. But to be honest lots of things can be addicting...

I stopped doing it. Yayayayayayayay!

Its true. 2 years, trying to stop, I think I should do something really good to other people

No nut november

2 Your life will be overall better

You will awake every morning knowing that you are probably one of the only people on planet earth that doesn't touch themselves and you will feel AWESOME.

Masturbation is one of the opposites of peace and it is a very deadly addiction. Overdoing it could ruin your life.

Yeah you 're right

Grow that bank account, quit spending all the time

3 It's a sin

Where, and in which religious text, does it say this? I have yet to find it in the Bible.

Is it a sin against nature? I don't believe in god but even if I did ; isn't it god who created nature and humans after his image? If he did I'm sure that god is a masturbater too because it's a natural thing to do.

Explain to me how exploring your body is a sin?

It's in the commandments

Yep! It's in the not-well-remembered eleventh commandment:
"The Lord spoke to Moses, and said: 'Thou shall not masturbate.'"

4 It's too distracting

It really is too distracting, I started in a young age and look at me now!

5 You're having sex with yourself

What is this list, is it a joke. I think it's a satirical list made to make fun of those few Christian and religious people who think masturbation is a bad thing.

This list is so stupid

*bursts into laugher*

Exactly! Why watch porn when you can be having sex with someone else?

6 You will think about sex when you're not supposed to be

People can think about sex whenever they want... it's the matter of actually doing it that might be a concern.

7 If you don't you will get more attention from females

When you don't ejaculate for a long time you hold in a lot of sperm. Humans are designed to reproduce so every time you masturbate your brain thinks your having sex or reproducing. Your brain doesn't know the difference. When you'r brain notices your not masturbating it will make your body give off pheromones to attract women and reproduce.

You do know that females can masturbate too, right?

Thumbs down for factually true information? Hypersensitivity is what this site has too much of. - Therandom

I like to watch my girlfriend masturbate and she likes to watch me masturbate. And sometimes she gives me handjobs. So, everything on this list is a joke.

Girls/Women can also masturbate not just Boys/Men

8 Masturbation kills drive

After you masturbate you don't want to do anything you just want to sleep. Your confidence will be low and you will feel empty. People will notice it on you.

I had the most awful depressive episode after I did. Safe to say that might be the last time I ever do it again.

It's the other way around! People (and certainly females ) will notice that you are agressive because you to tense. Your drive and confidence works better if you release some steam once in a while.

Not really it increases your sex drive.

9 You will feel accomplished if you don't masturbate

This is only true if you are actively trying to not masturbate.

If you can do something you know no one else is doing or can do you will feel like the best in the room at all times. You will be Glowing.


I was masturbating for the first time in months, the first time since I gave my life to Jesus, and that's the one that stopped me :) ty for this epic list

10 Mind fog and lack of nutrients

Take notice for your self. All of these things on this list I agreeing with

Again where is your proof of such a invalid claim?

The Contenders

11 It will mess with your brain

Porn and masturbation have a psychological imprint on those that do it. The more you do it, the more addicting it becomes. After a while You would then crave more gruesome and hardcore porno and soon you’ll be acting your sexual desires out in public.


Ah, it will morally corrupt you, and you will become a lust-fueled shell of your former self. - TopTenTed

12 You will appreciate women more

You wont see women as Sexual Objects and that will in turn improve your dating life. You will learn to love girls for there personalities. But don't be mistaken you will get VERY attracted to a beautiful girls even more than you did before but that's a good thing.

I can partially agree with this but not because I think more of a woman when I don't masturbate but because when I do it too much I notice more trivial things my partner does that I don't like. When I don't do it too much I often notice more things I like. Strange

Depends on what you're jerking it to. There's a big difference between porn and, say, erotica.

That's maybe ok if you want to stay in the friendzone but when the times come that she want to have sex ( yes, girls want and like sex! ) you will be a totally loser.

13 You will be a beast by nature

After not masturbating for a long time you're temper will get worse. You will say anything to anyone you will be scared of nothing. If you see a hot girl your brain will force you to talk to her because it wants to reproduce. Basically you will be King Kong on the inside.

You need sex. And giving it to yourself can be nice. But if you don't you will become anxious, eager, you will not be afraid to talk to chicks, you will lose all fear, you will try everything, thus increasing chances of getting laid

This claim is ridiculous... it really is...

14 You're testosterone will be through the roof

There's a reason boxers withhold sex before a fight. Testosterone is what makes you a man if you have more than another man you will be more manly therefore get more dates,success in life etc...

15 It's gross

You can just do this thing in private, do you really thing everything has to be seen by the world?

The person that added this must also think having sex with someone else is gross, and will most likely never have a spouse or children.

I like to swallow not spit

Not really. If you do it in the privacy of your own home and clean up afterwards, then it's perfectly fine.

16 Feeling guilt

Yeah... Fap on

17 It make kids think stupid

So true it could change there whole way of thinking about wemon all together not just any wemon all wemon

18 You won't put women on a pedestal

You're not suppose to put women on pedestals... I think that's one of the things they hate. They want an Alpha not a stool. A necklace is what I would give to my wife after 2 years of marriage not to some skank I want to shag... get real.

You will never put a women's needs above yours because you know that you don't need sex that much. You wont buy her a necklace just because she may give it up for you or anything like that.

19 You will gain the upper hand in a relationship

The girl will not own you, she cannot use sex as a weapon or take it off the table or anything like that. In fact She will probably be the one asking you for it.

it love I

20 Overdoing it can cause mood swings

Where is your proof of this claim?

There’s no proof lil boi.

21 It makes you seem desperate

It's just weird and not right.

22 It makes you demotivated

Overall, this is the truth. It makes you like a mess and gives you feeling worthless for nothing. Masturbation is attracting you to negativity.

Actually it makes you more MOTIVATED, and prepared for sex... but whatever.

23 Can make you disrespectful and change the way you act to other people

Thank you for the solution.

24 It makes you lazy

You lose energy when you ejaculate.

25 Overdoing it can lead to depression

This is true. I've been masturbating for a whole week and it's made me instantly depressed. It really is a side effect of overdoing it.

This never happens if you overdo it.

Nah, it makes you happier.

I've seen no proof that it leads to depression... like at all...
