Turns out masturbation does cause social anxiety
 
I don't know if I'm having a lucky couple of days but I remember a few days ago someone posted a thread about how masturbation can cause you to have anxiety.so I figured, what the heck? How does that have anything to do with social anxiety? Then I thought, hmm I might as well give it a try. I haven't masturbated in 3 days and I'm already starting to feel better. I know it's cause of masturbation because I haven't changed any of my normal routines besides refraining from masturbation. Plus I saw articles about the negative effects of masturbstion; anxiety, fatigue, blurry eyes, lower back pain, etc. i had all of those symptoms. I'm not ashamed to admit I masturbated once a day every day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and that's gonna change. Trust me on this for those who masturbate a lot, limit ur masturbation and you will see positive results!

Seen a million of these threads and still don't understand how masturbation and anxiety relate.

Good for you though.

Maybe its just a placebo effect? I can see why it might cause some lower self esteem issues..Like if your masturbating to porn all the time and feel guilty,gross....but I don't think it's the cause for anxiety. I hardly ever jerk...

Same thing I thought until I tried it. It might have worked for me since I used to masturbate a lot and when I say a lot, I mean a lot.

Is the only evidence for this claim just a bunch of anecdotes?

"I dunno how it works guys, just trust me on this"

How would a math debate work? You argue over whether 2+6=8 or something?

This makes no sense because its something that most people do SA or not.

lol

I've found out there is a strong clear relation between masturbation and anxiety/depression. It causes some kind of negative brain chemistry change for me. Something to do with dopamine maybe? I'll get back after I research about it.

Is there some secret organization that pays people to say this? I've said it before and I'll say it again, Masturbation is a healthy way to release sexual tension. There is no evidence to suggest masturbation causes social anxiety. It doesn't even make any sense as you are more likely to be stressed and and anxious without some kind of sexual release.

lawd, not this again.

This may just be the most overposted topic, right after "Am I Ugly" and "I'm X and I've never had a GF"

i think you could quit brushing your teeth and then 3 days later say 'not brushing my teeth helped my anxiety!!"

it's more that if you want the anxiety to stop anything will work

this is weird as it's supposed to make you feel relaxed and happy due to the endorphin's. :S
Could be a placebo effect I guess. Or, do you experience shame for some reason when you masturbate? Could be somewhat related.

Also thanks for the advice, but I know it has no impact whatsoever either way for me lol.

Wasn't there a thread on here at one time suggesting that too much water intake daily could cause anxiety?

WD3 10-29-2012 06:00 PM

I just went cold turkey a few days ago. There are a lot of success stories out there and I hope this helps. I have a good feeling it will. Only time will tell.

Usually we would just ask the teachers personal questions so they would get distracted and waste time.
