Question
sir i would like your advice on edging.
masturbating to the point of ejaculation and stopping
then starting again.
i have heard it helps controlling ejaculation.
can this practice of masurbating and not ejaculating hurt or damage the penip?
like causing ed?
kind regards

Answer
Marco:

This was sometimes used to help control premature ejaculation, but it is not recommended.  First, you are interfering with a normal function.  Trying to do this can cause increased pressure and possibly reflux type prostatitis.  It will not hurt the penis or likely cause ED, but still we would not recommend.
