Does Masturbation Affect Penis Size? The Definitive Answer

Written by Jeff Ferrara on December 1, 2017


Guy wondering if masturbation affects penis size.

Does masturbation affect your penis size? The short answer.

No.

This is the definitive answer to put this question to rest:

Normal masturbation will not affect your penis size, overall.

But what is considered normal masturbation?

Normal masturbation is anything that includes 2-7 masturbation sessions per week, taking 5-15 minutes to orgasm from start to finish.

The intensity at which you grip your penis is also "moderate" in that you're not completely choking your penis to death.

Normal masturbation can also be considered when you do it "dry" or with a water-based lube - it doesn't matter.

The short-term effects.

There are some short-term effects to consider, however.

Depending on how you masturbate, you can actually get a temporary boost in size.

However, this size will go away within 30 minutes to an hour after masturbating.

How to masturbate to get more temporary size?

Simply use a "loose" grip and push the skin foward as if trying to overlap it over the skin in front.

If you have a foreskin, it's like "stretching" your foreskin.

Even if you don't have a foreskin (because you're circumsized), you can still simulate this motion with the skin that's still left on your penis shaft.

In terms of te short-term results, more specifically, you will see a temporary increase in the girth of the penis.

Why?

Because you're essentially doing an ancient penis enlargement technique (which originated in the Middle East) known as jelqing.

Jelqing is still done to this modern day and many guys stick to a solid jelqing routine because of the aforementioned benefits and results.

The long-term effects.

Jelqing does have long-term effects, but the reason that jelqing provides long-term effects and normal masturbation does not is because there is a very special technique required for jelqing.

Not only that, but you have to be very disciplined with a jelqing routine by doing at least 5 sessions a week.

So, jelqing aside, what are the long-term effects of masturbation?

The simple truth is:

Nothing.

If you were an ordinary teenager who discovered masturbation and do it pretty much everday, once a day - you wouldn't see much of a long-term increase (or decrease) in penis size.

A common misconception with teenagers who just discover masturbation is that if they do it more often, their penis will actually grow larger.

This simply isn't true.

What's actually happening is that a teenger will still be going through puberty and their penis size will get its last significant boost in growth in their lifetime.

That's why it's easy to confuse masturbation as the source cause of increasing penis size, when it's actually just puberty.

What masturbation does to the penis.

Physically, what's going on to your penis tissues?

When you masturbate, you're rubbing your penis shaft tissues.

On the surface of the penis shaft, you are using your hand to stimulate the nerve endings in your penis.

If you're using a lubricant, you're diluting the stimulation and "smoothing" it out across all the nerve endings.

If there's no lubricant, you are effectively stimulating a lower number of nerves but with more intensity.

That's why a lube naturally feels better than without one.

At the surface, the skin is merely being rubbed.

However, as you go lower, below the penis shaft skin, the physical pressure that's being applied to the tissue becomes less and less.

The stimulation naturally makes more blood flow into the penis.

It's your body's natural "aroused" response to stimulation to the genitals.

However, that blood flow to the penis is extremely routine and does not affect penis size.

Only with a dedicated, intense, significant stimulation like jelqing will be a more surefire agent for size change.

What happens if I masturbate a lot?

Again, think about what's going on when you masturbate.

If you're only doing it for 1-10 minutes that's really not a long time.

Especially since masturbation is a naturally gentle physical motion.

What if I take an hour per masturbation session?

Given a moderate intensity - some things may start to occur if you masturbate for this long.

Your blood will be inside your penis for a "long" time.

Remember, when your penis is flaccid, there is practically no blood in there.

Blood is what inflates your penis to give it size.

So if you keep the blood in your penis for a long period of time, over time, you will start to see your penis adapt.

However, I don't want to get your hopes up:

Your penis will engorge slightly over time from extremely long, moderate masturbation sessions.

However, you have to consider the time and effort for such a minimal net gain.

Most guys simply do not and cannot masturbate for an hour - the anticipation and desire would not allow it.

However, this cause and effect is important to note because it is a good demostration on optmizing time for results.

For example, spending hours a week for the sole purpose of incresing your penis size by 1 mm is not efficient at all.

Wouldn't it be better if there was a more efficient way to permanently increase your penis size?

Fortunately there is.

Believe it or not, these same methods are commonly used in plastic surgery every day in Hollywood.

It's called, the "Traction Principle".

Traction is the use of devices and braces to hold a body part in an extended, stretched position for a long period of time.

Depending on the procedure this "long period" can be defined as hours, days, or weeks.

In the case of rhinoplasty, the traction is held on the order of days to make sure that the bone structure is adjusted to accomodate the modified nose tissues.

You can bet that this same "traction princple" has been applied to the penis to get permanent results.

In fact, more guys are using this method, right now as we speak.

Other effects of certain masturbation techniques.

You'll last longer if you masturbate like this:

If you masturbate for long periods of time without cumming - you're effectively doing a penis training exercise called edging.

Don't be scared - it's actually a really good exercise that you can do for your penis and sexual health.

Why?

Edging helps you to last longer during sex.

It also helps to prevent premature ejaculation!

If you're like me, I'm sure you've always feared getting in bed with a sexy/cute girl and only lasting a few minutes.

With edging, there is literally a way to train yourself to prevent this nightmare from ever happening.

Other benefits of edging include increased ejaculate load and even multiple orgasms with low "recharge" time, especially for those who have been doing edging for a long period of time.

In Conclusion

So does masturbation affect penis size?

In general - no.

There are, however, more strenuous penis enlargement exercises that can affect your size.

But they require more effort and discipline compared to casual masturbation.

Ultimately, masturbating does not harm or help you.

It's only when you start going to huge extremes that non-zero effects start to kick in.

But at that point, just like with anyting in life, the key is controlled moderation.

Otherwise anything can be viewed as a bad thing.

So, if you were fearfult that your masturbation was possibly shrinking your penis size - don't worry.

And if you thought you were getting a size boost - well, nice try too.

Only our traction devies and dedicated exercises can help you there.
