Masturbation may be a man’s favorite solitary activity, but it actually also has incredible health and wellness benefits. Not only does it relieve stress, make you feel happier, and remove pent-up frustration, but it can also have a number of objective measurable health benefits. In fact, the benefits of masturbation are so widespread and diverse that science (according to several studies) suggests that men should masturbate at least 21 times a month!

So what are the exact benefits of masturbation? In this article, we delve deep into male masturbation to explore their specific benefits.

What are the Benefits of Masturbation (Male)?
Reduces Premature Ejaculation


There’s nothing quite as embarrassing and frustrating as premature ejaculation when you’re having sex.

For most people, especially those who are single, the availability of sex can be erratic and unpredictable. There’s usually a lot of pent-up excitement about the prospect of sex. But if you don’t masturbate often enough, your body doesn’t really have a high tolerance for sexual stimulus.

What does that mean?

It means you run the risk of ejaculating a few minutes after initiating sex! This can be personally embarrassing, it can be frustrating because you can’t extend the pleasure, and it can also be frustrating for your partner because they don’t get to finish.

However, regular masturbation can help you build up a tolerance. And masturbating about two hours before sex can drastically increase your sexual stamina.

Prevents Prostate Cancer


A research conducted by Harvard University found that male masturbation at least 21 times a month can cut down your risk of prostate cancer by up to 33%.

The study was conducted with a sample size of 31,925 men and it found a direct link to the participants’ frequency of masturbation and their risk of prostate cancer. Basically, masturbating almost on a daily basis can improve your prostate health greatly.

Enhances Sperm Motility


This specific benefit of masturbation is based on a convincing theory. Basically, when you masturbate, you release residual or inactive sperms from the semen transporting tubules. As such, if you have sex shortly after masturbating, you release fresh sperms with far greater motility that are more likely to lead to impregnation… if that’s your goal.

Improves Sex Life


Sex therapists and researchers across the globe have confirmed that masturbation can drastically improve one’s sex life.

Male masturbation can help you better understand your body’s wants, preferences, and desires. This allows you to better communicate your desires with your partner so you can both enjoy a more fulfilling sexual experience.

Male masturbation also takes the pressure off your partner to be your sole source of sexual relief, which takes a great pressure off your relationship.

Elevates Mood and Mental Health


Male masturbation can help release pent-up sexual energy and frustration, thereby elevating your general mood. Furthermore, masturbation also releases the feel-good hormones called oxytocin. The release of oxytocin in the body can help improve your mental health considerably as it prevents anxiety and depression.


The benefits of masturbation for men are too widespread to be completely listed out and explained in a single series. The benefits of male masturbation range from sexual, physical, mental, and so much more.
