hi my age is 42 i m male masturbating since my childhood at various frequencies now a days i masturbate 4-5 times a day i get full erection does it effect at later age and how to overcome it

Masturbation is natural, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.  Your frequency is an extreme one.  Most men your age are sexually active or working at being sexually active, and most only masturbate once a day or less.  It is good that you still get a full erection.  Masturbating will not make it tougher for you at later ages, but I suspect you're not looking to be sexually active when you masturbate that often.

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 in the world.
