Long story short, “NO” your body is not affected by masturbation (Unless you overdo it). Stop believing the myths that float on your WhatsApp group and start following the facts like an awaked user. We all have been self-isolating and staying inside for months now! It may make you feel lonely and frustrated, after all, there’s only so much you can watch Netflix or your favourite TV shows. During this time, if you feel the need to pleasure yourself, just do it and don’t worry about it affecting your immunity anyhow; here’s why:
1. Masturbation boosts your immune system.
The increase of oxytocin and dopamine that causes a decrease in cortisol levels can help boost our immune system because cortisol (well-known for being a stress-inducing hormone) actually helps maintain your immune system if released in small doses. According to a hormone-therapy specialist, masturbation can produce the right kind of environment for a strengthened immune system to thrive.
A study conducted by the Department of Medical Psychology at the University Clinic of Essen (in Germany) shows, the white blood cell count of each participant was analysed through measures that were taken 5 minutes before and 45 minutes after reaching a self-induced orgasm.
The results confirmed that sexual arousal and orgasm increased the number of white blood cells, particularly the natural killer cells that help fight off infections.
See there are factual proofs and experiments? You were just believing the rumours and avoiding all the self-pleasure, fun and the love to your body. Shut the rumours off and touch yourself today!
The findings confirm that our immune system is positively affected by sexual arousal and self-induced orgasm and promote even more research into the positive impacts of sexual arousal and orgasm.
2. Masturbating Releases Hormones
Masturbation causes your body to release a number of hormones. These hormones include:
- Dopamine. This is one of the “feel-good hormone” that’s related to your brain’s reward system.
- Endorphins. The body’s natural pain reliever, endorphins also have de-stressing and mood-boosting effects.
- Oxytocin. This hormone is the love hormone and is associates with social bonding.
- Testosterone. This hormone releases during sex to improve stamina and arousal. It’s also released when you have sexual fantasies,
- Prolactin. A hormone that plays an important role in lactation, prolactin also influences your mood and immune system.
Masturbating can cause you to release healthy amounts of the above hormones, which is why it can positively affect your mood and physical health.
3. Improves your focus and concentration
Teenagers have a problem while focusing on their study and concentrating on something without distraction. There is a solution for that in masturbation a “post-nut clarity”: a situation where your brain suddenly feels focused after you have an orgasm.
Indeed, many people find that masturbating helps them concentrate better. As such, they might masturbate before working, studying, or taking a test.
There’s no scientific explanation for this, as it hasn’t been studied specifically. However, this sense of clarity and focus might be a result of feeling great and happy after an orgasm.
4. It can help lighten stress and Anxiety
This is very helpful for people during this time. You may feel alone, distressed, frustrated with things going on in life, so instead of believing the myths and staying away from masturbation, you need to get under your sheets and get done with pleasuring yourself and have fun!
While oxytocin is commonly known as the “love hormone” and associated with social bonding, it’s also associated with de-stressing and relaxation.
As one 2005 study points out, oxytocin plays an important role in regulating stress and reducing anxiety. It does this by reducing blood pressure and lowering your cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone which associates with stress.
So, if you’re hoping to relieve some tension after a tough day at home, masturbating might be a good relaxation technique!

You may be so bored that at night you may not be having a proper routine for sleep, or you may be so tired all day doing nothing that even you can’t sleep properly. Anecdotally, many people use masturbation to fall asleep.
Oxytocin and endorphins relate to relaxation, so it makes sense that masturbation can help you sleep, especially if stress and anxiety are keeping you from getting some shut-eye.
