First of all, hello everyone.

I wanted to tell you guys something that is important, it's about the harms of masturbation and pornography on the brain and body.

Contemporary doctors and psychologists usually say it's healthy...let me just tell you this : they DO NOT know what they are talking about, they simply don't have the perspective of a porn addict. Porn viewing is linked to less grey matter in the brain, check the latest research.

Quitting masturbation and pornography has been the best thing I've done for myself in the last few years. Most people don't realize how harmful it can be.
I personally can't believe how much time I wasted on these things.

Here are some of the benefits of abstaining from both masturbation and porn for a few weeks :
- Feelings of well-being. Being calmer. Easier to laugh, less anger.
- Feeling MORE pleasure from everyday activities, this benefit is amazing. :D
- More creativity. The sense of humor comes back.
- Better memory. Better ability to concentrate.
- More natural confidence, less social anxiety.
- Easier to give up other addictions (smoking, too much caffeine, gaming, thinking about someone of the opposite sex).
- More motivation to do important things.
- Music becomes more pleasurable. In fact, music tastes could even change.
- Less sleep is needed.
- Easier to talk, less stutter.
- Being able to remember dreams.
- Less sexual problems, better erections.
- Feeling emotions more strongly, like love for example.
- Emotionally more resilient.
- The skin will look younger, less acne.
- More physical strength.
- A deeper voice.
- A stronger immune system.

Note : Most people who quit get these benefits, but some need more time to be cured.
Note 2 : Beware the withdrawal symptoms in the first few days (irritability, loss of motivation. crying...)

Here are lots of testimonials of people who quit (imo a MUST-READ) :

Thanks for your honesty.

When one embarks on the slippery slope of ANY addiction then it is only with the help of Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala that one can cure it.

Ideal remedies include reading the Qur'an and Hadiths, praying, fasting and Dhikr.

Your anecdotal information and experiences are well taken, however it is incorrect to conflate porn and masturbation. Likewise, most healthcare professionals are indeed aware of the harm caused by porn addiction. Masturbation, unlike porn, in my estimation, requires a more practical and nuanced approach. In other words, to the best of your ability, porn should be completely avoided. Masturbation, given individual circumstances, can be problematic, as well as, beneficial in my opinion.

Hello all. Sorry I have not been here to answer.

Please share this !

Masturbation is a real mystery, having an orgasm with one's hand is DAMAGING.

The "friendzone" is usually caused by masturbation. Masturbation sometimes attracts bullying. Porn will destroy your soul. Here are many testimonials about the GREAT benefits of quitting porn and masturbation, this is a MUST-READ :

Low spiritual vibrations = depression, loving metal music, porn, piercings, tatoos, low quality sex, violent behavior when stressed, taking naked selfies, feeling the need to insult others, drugs etc...

Being on the lower spiritual plane is like having major myopia, you do not "see", you cannot see the "real beauty" of the world, the faces of women, art, "higher" music for instance.

Remember how much happier you were when you were a kid? Small things delighted you, everybody loved you, you were happy from the moment you woke up to the moment you went to sleep.

Chronic masturbators usually attract people of the same spiritual plane, everywhere, even on the internet, vidéo games...

Metal music, g-strings, pornography, the fact that women dress in a bad way, tatoos, piercings (except the earrings), vulgar swear words, the impression that time passes "too quickly", the disappearance of true intellect and even the way people walk (no or little grace in movements), is I think, and I am not sure at all, the results of people's sins today, especially Usury and Fornication! wa Allahu a3lam.

I believe that just not speaking against usury can plunge one into grave sin.

Avoiding sins, doing many good deeds like helping others and giving charity will AWAKEN a human being SPIRITUALLY, you won't stand to see things like nudity or hear bad music anymore. And your brain will feel new, wonderful things. Even your food and music taste will change. You will meet new like-minded people. And your words will have much more impact than usual (even on the internet). You will attract better people easily. Your face will be brighter than usual. You will become much smarter.

If you keep on doing tons of good deeds while avoiding sins, you will need much less sleep, eat a lot less yet have immense energy, be a lot more courageous and resilient, you will feel great! Your spiritual energy will be so high that you will attract great friends and wealth without much effort. Strangers will smile at you for no reason, small children will come to you in a trusting way, animals will approach you.

Purify your soul, for you shall feel love everlasting.

Have a nice day.

Where in the Quran it is mentioned masturbation is sin????? You don't have any knowledge and you bombard rubbish, fear because tomorrow Allah may ask you on whom authority you regard maaturbation as sin, I m a doctor myself and I have never read any thing regarding masturbation inmedical books, so plz read Quran and then speak, many people regards ch 23 v 5 in reference to this but it is more for abstaining from adultery or sex b4 marriage, or if you can tell any verse regarding this because I am also enquiring about this and I get astonished how someone confidently label one thing as sin.plz I would be highly obliged if you present me the verse from Quran related to this.

Many Christian sects and the Catholic church teach masturbation as sin. Anything below the belt "they" (whoever they are) condemn as adultery or fornication. It is not.

Sexual drives were a gift from God as are all of our drives and aspirations, any of which we can abuse and call sinful.

A lot goes into what ones attitude is while masturbating. Are you just reliving some excess hormones, or are you in a state of wild lust, shutting yourself off from God's grace. Anything can be sinful if you take it to an extreme, and anything (well almost) can be holy if you treat it with care and respect.
