Male Masturbation/problems of prone mastrubation


dear sir i have been facing sexual dysfunctions due to prone mastrubation.. i have given it up..please tell me some remedies to cure these and how long i will need to get back to normal

Masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.  Most younger males practice it daily.  But masturbating should never be done in the prone position.  Prone masturbation means a male lies face down and thrusts his penis into or against something, like a bed.

Once you give up prone masturbation and learn to masturbate by hand, you ought to notice a difference in your erections within a few months.  I advise males quitting prone to be able to masturbate by hand daily for a month before trying sex with a partner.

I write from the point of view that masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary to sexual health. I am able to answer questions in all areas of sexuality.


I am the author of the web site and have been answering questions about sexuality (especially masturbation) from both males and females for over 13 years.

I have a Ph.D. in a field unrelated to sexuality from one of the leading educational institutions of the world.
