There is nothing terrible about it, neither it harms sexual organs nor leads to any psychological illness until you are addicted to it, overdo it or practice prone masturbation. Lovegasm, a company that advocates the use of safe sex toys reiterated that many people engage in prone masturbation without realizing or being aware of its long-term damaging effects on their sex lives.
What Is Prone Masturbation
Most of the reports on prone masturbation are focused on people with penises. It is estimated that about 5-10 percent of men masturbate in the prone position, i.e. lying on belly with face down and thrusting or rubbing the penis against a pillow, bed, floor or sex toy. But this act can be dangerous and every men should be aware of it.
If you are a male masturbating in prone position stop doing it. Although we have very limited research this type of act. But there are research and anecdotal reports that suggests that this act can lead to sexual complications that are termed as traumatic masturbatory syndrome.
Why Masturbating In Prone Position Is Wrong?
The objects that are used as sexual stimulants by males who masturbate prone do not provide resistance just like the partner’s body. Even a mattress or pillow does not provide strength like a female vagina. Thus, a lot of pressure is placed on the base of the penis as well as vital nerves found there. In comparison to the sensations that are felt while having sex with your partner this pressure is far too intense. The participants have a hard time reaching climax. In the long term, it may cause damage and dulls the effects of sensations. The subject is unable to achieve the expected sensation or level of pressure and the act of masturbation or intercourse becomes less pleasing.
About 60 percent, prone masturbation addicts have reported suffering from a real sexual issue or complete inability to achieve orgasm during the intercourse. This condition is termed as anorgasmia.
In 30 percent cases prone masturbation numbs the body to pleasure and arousal. These patients thus reports having difficulty in having erected penises or maintaining erection while having oral sex, foreplay or penetrative sex. They also have delayed orgasm or complete inability to reach orgasm.
All this effects the ability of males to have a healthy sexual relationship reduces. The females of such male partners find the outcome unusual, and man’s ability to reach climax through intercourse is blamed because even after getting engaged in sexual intercourse for over 30 minutes they are unable to attain climax. Sexual issues lead to mental and emotional stress. Man starts worrying about his sexual abilities and this in turn affects his performance leading to greater dysfunction and then the cycle goes on.
