Safety: Is masturbation safe?

[Add New]

Pro

  • While masturbating, one cannot catch STDs. While the sexual intercourse is definitely connected with not so slight chance of contracting a STD (sexually transmitted disease), it's virtually impossible to catch a STD, if only rudimentary hygiene is adhered to during the process of masturbation.
  • Masturbation cannot lead to unwanted pregnancy. Masturbation can in fact be seen as a kind of contraception.

Con

  • Masturbation can dangerously easy evolve into something more. It is rather highly possible, that mutually masturbating couple will be rather strongly tempted to proceed further.

Con

  • Long-term lone masturbation can lead to serious psychological problems. While masturbation is almost completely safe, very practical, and (literally) always at hand, when carried out alone for long periods of time it can lead to psychological problems.
