Is Male Masturbation a By-Product of Pent-Up Sexual Needs Or Physiological in Origin?

Masturbation has existed since Man has walked the Earth and hardly, in the history of Man, been positively looked upon. Is masturbation just a catharsis for lack of sexual contact or may it have in it a deeper, more physiological function?

It’s certainly worth thinking about… Truly there is nothing worse than making someone feel “dirty” for doing something that may apparently be a natural function of biological checks and balances. Such is the case with male masturbation.

Let’s start with the female of the human species to have something comparable. This will help us better understand the male aspect of masturbation. When a female is born she is has, in her possession, about 500,000 eggs. This is down from about seven million that have been culled out by the body as being “below-grade.” By the time she hits puberty, she’ll have about 400,000.

The body is smart enough to realize which eggs are the healthiest and these are the first to be released (about every 28 days). This is why, as women age, there is an increased risk of birth defects. Suffice it to say, the body chooses the healthiest eggs first. As time goes on, the quality of the eggs decrease, as the best eggs have been picked first. Yes, the human innate intelligence is actually that smart. In fact, smarter than we will ever be able to mentally grasp.

The female ovulation cycle is based on the Lunar Phase. This is why in human history, archetypically and symbolically, The Woman is related to The Moon and The Man is synonymous with The Sun. Anyway, because of the lunar cycle, women typically ovulate every 28 days. If the egg is not fertilized, the endometrial lining that was created to help with fertilization is shed until the beginning of the next cycle begins. 2/3rds of it is absorbed by the woman; the rest is expelled as particles and blood during menstruation.

Thus, for the case of women, the body produces a physiological mechanism to rid the body of material that is no longer needed for fertilization.

Instead of eggs, men create sperm. These little critters are the ones that are utilized to fertilize the egg. However… The male does not have such an automated purgative device for getting rid of dead sperm. Since sperm are being created constantly to ensure that the male has a constant and healthy supply, what happens to the sperm that die before being ejaculated? It’s an interesting question, since men seem to be lacking a “menstruation” process to purge the body of their dead sperm.

This build up of dead sperm is not a problem for men who are sexually active. The reason for this is that they will be ejaculating enough sperm that they won’t create a build up of sperm.

However, what happens to the man who is not sexually active? Really, if he is not sexually active it makes sense that he will have an overabundance of sperm, a good portion of which will be dead and unable to fertilize the egg.

The last thing that “Nature” wants is for a man to be carrying around a load of dead and useless sperm. So, there must be a natural mechanism (as in women) to rid the body of sperm that are no longer of any use. This is where masturbation comes into play. It is a natural and instinctive response that a man engages in to help rid his body of sperm that are dead and useless. In fact, if any men are interested in creating “wet dreams,” here is the way to do it: Stop having sex or masturbating. As the body continues to build up a large portion of useless sperm, it must have some form of mechanism to get rid of them. If you don’t masturbate or have sex to get rid of them, then the mind creates “wet dreams” to stimulate the nocturnal release of these sperm. That’s what “wet dreams” are for (after the post-pubescent hormone deluge, understandably).

It is also believed that some dead sperm are actually reabsorbed by the body. However, it has been postulated that the energy that is required to reabsorb spermal material and “recycle” it by the body is a waste of energy (it requires more energy for sperm absorption, breakdown, and recycling than if new material was utilized to create new sperm). So, unless the body is deficient in certain minerals and proteins, the body will vote for releasing them through “wet dreams” (again, if sex and masturbation are not being performed).

Back to the original question posed in the “header” of this article: Do men masturbate because they are sexually deficient or because it is just a normal physiological process of the body?

Probably both; and why not? Masturbation is an incredible way for men to relieve stress and frustration. This is why it is enjoyable. Nature rewards men for masturbating with the gift of pleasure. This ensures that a man will have a supply of healthy and active sperm, instead of an oversupply of useless sperm.

However, if a man masturbates too much it can be a problem. The reason for this is that it creates a shortage of sperm. Mature sperm are not created overnight. It takes about 30 days for them to mature. This is why having sex or masturbating to excess can make a man less fertile. Of course, if he is not interested in sex for reproductive purposes, then he’s hardly going to worry about it.

To summarize: A man’s desire to masturbate may not necessarily be activated because his hormones are running amok and he needs some method to help corral them and release his sexual desires through a “fantasy” experience. Masturbation, for men, may just be a normal, built-in physiological mechanism to rid the body of useless sperm. Therefore, it hardly warrants the negative publicity that masturbation has garnered over the years. No man should be made to feel guilty for taking part in something that is just a natural and in-born reflex.
