    I masturbate every day, sometimes two or three times a day. Can a man masturbate too much?

    If you mean can it do you any harm, the simple answer is no. I would only be concerned if it was interfering with your everyday life or relationship.

    If you mean can it do you any harm, the simple answer is no. It’s not uncommon for someone (male or female) with a high sex drive to masturbate two or three times a day; it’s an individual thing. I would only be concerned if it was interfering with your everyday life or relationship.

    Masturbation serves different purposes: apart from the obvious one of sexual release, it relieves tension, helps us sleep, can be a comfort… and recent research even suggests that frequent orgasms can reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men.

    Another function of masturbation I’ve mentioned before is as a ‘training ground’ for a man to practise extending the time he can last before ejaculation - taking himself almost to the point of coming, and then slowing right down again to delay the moment.

    There’s nothing wrong with a ‘quickie’ when that’s what you fancy, but developing the ability to last a bit longer and savour the build-up can give you more exciting orgasms - and will carry over into your lovemaking. Speaking of which, don’t let’s forget that masturbation can be an enjoyable feature of sex with a partner too, whichever one of you is ‘hands on’.

    I think it’s only a cause for concern in a relationship if it becomes preferable to sex with a partner, in which case I’d have a look at what’s going on and try to redress the balance.
