Does masturbating cause erectile dysfunction?

Both Erectile dysfunction (ED) and masturbation are common happenings among men. Yet, there’s still an ongoing belief that masturbation causes ED. Thankfully, new reports answer the age-old question: Does masturbation cause erectile dysfunction? 

ED Defined

ED is when a man is unable to get an erection hard enough, or for long enough, to have sex or masturbate. It can be caused by a number of factors, and 40% of men experience it regularly. While masturbation isn’t a health condition, the statistics are still surprising; reports show 92% of men in the U.S. participate in the act.

The link between masturbation and ED

Here’s the good news; it is universally accepted that there is no link between masturbation and ED. The majority of scientific data confirms frequent masturbation doesn’t hurt one’s ability to gain or maintain erections, and any connection between the two is officially a myth.

ED is caused by a lack of blood flow to the penis, or if the brain isn’t sending signals correctly. Assuming standard techniques are used, masturbation doesn’t interfere with blood flow or nerve signals, thereby not affecting erections. 

It is true that a man may not be able to achieve an erection soon after ejaculation. This is usually just a common part of the male refractory period, and shouldn’t be confused with ED. The male refractory period is completely normal and can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. So if you need a break in between orgasms, don’t worry, it is not necessarily a sign of ED.

Masturbation has health benefits  

Masturbation is not a cause of ED. On the contrary, masturbation is widely considered a healthy activity. It can help to reduce stress, release tension, and improve sleep. In some cases, masturbation can even help ED. 

Masturbation does not directly cause erectile dysfunction symptoms.

When ED is caused by psychological issues like stress, performance anxiety, or depression, masturbation can be an effective method to gain back confidence needed to perform with a partner. In short, masturbation can help with your overall sexual health and wellness and can contribute to an improved sex life.

Treating erectile dysfunction naturally

Some men may find comfort in knowing that masturbation is not the reason for their ED, but are still seeking ED treatments. When it comes to achieving erections for the purpose of masturbation, not all ED treatments were created equal. One ED solution proven for masturbation is a new wearable device called Giddy. Giddy is registered with the FDA as a class II medical device for the treatment of ED without side effects from drugs. You can use Giddy alone, or with a partner, and if used correctly it will assist in achieving and maintaining healthy erections.
