I was just curious, what are the effects of masturbation and what are the effects of abstaining from it? I've heard claims that it improves your attractiveness to the opposite sex or that it makes you more focused but of course I was skeptical since so many religious folks seem to say anything to push their own agenda. Based on the studies I've read about it seems like masturbation is more beneficial to the body than sexual abstinence. So, PFers... What would the difference be between, say, masturbating daily or abstaining for days or weeks at a time? Let's assume we're talking about healthy men that are between 18 and 25 years old.
