Most modern foreign sexologists and some domestic sexologists consider adult masturbation even useful. In some cases, it is really necessary. The method of sex therapy, developed by sex therapists for the treatment of sexual disorders, necessarily includes masturbation. It is believed that if a person does not know his body and ways of effective stimulation, it negatively affects his sexual functions and the ability to experience orgasm. This is especially important in the treatment of sexual coldness in women, since the vast majority of men have experience of masturbation.

But what has been said applies to adults...

When the libido moves from the Platonic to the erotic stage, the adolescent has an interest in the intimate side of the relationship between the sexes, erotic literature, and photographs of erotic content.

In works of fiction, adolescents like the description of the rendezvous scenes and explanations in love. An adult in these descriptions may not find a hint of sexuality, but they excite the imagination of the teenager and encourage him to erotic fantasies.

This interest can, like an epidemic, spread to a team of teenagers with normal psychosexual development. Only children with delayed psychosexual development and hormonal insufficiency remain indifferent to him.

About the pathogenic effects of masturbation before (up to the 60s of the early 70s of the XX century), wrote a lot and almost all those who touched on this topic. The opinion about sinfulness and its extreme harm existed for several centuries. In the Christian world, the idea of ​​sinfulness of onanism was promoted by the spread of the worldview of a number of theologians. In this connection, in particular, Augustine (4th century AD) was mentioned, who believed that every sexual act and ejaculation should be carried out naturally and have as its goal the conception. Since masturbation did not lead to procreation, it was classified as a sinful act.

Erection is a functional increase in the volume and tension of the penis. Erection allows you to perform sexual intercourse and enter the seed into the vagina. It occurs as a result of increased arterial blood flow into the corpus cavernosum, an increase in pressure in the arteries supplying the blood to the penis, ie, a simultaneous decrease in the outflow of venous blood. Erection is the result of a clear interaction of nerves, arteries, veins and muscles. Violation of the filling of cavernous bodies with blood is most often due to disorders of the nervous system that regulates sexual function. In rare cases, erectile dysfunction can be associated with the pathology of blood vessels or perineal muscles, which to some extent also participate in erection.

Erections can arise as a simple re...

It is necessary to pay attention to the psychological and physiological (physiological processes, subject to tonic deceleration and phase acceleration) aspects of sleep. They are usually related, but this connection may be disrupted (for example, after stereotactic damage to the Kahal nucleus, which is probably accompanied by damage to the arch, which is an important part of the limbic system). It is possible that the physiological processes in the dream will proceed without disturbances, while in the mental component of sleep disorders appear, that is, the person will not see dreams or will not be able to recall them [Jovanovic, 1965]. However, only 40-50% of healthy men feel subjective in their sleep, usually at a young age.

Although erections are managed biologically in a dream, they ar...

Sexual deviation (parapathy, paraphilia, parerosia, sexual paresthesia) refers to the basic concepts, meaning any deviation from the norm in sexual behavior, regardless of its manifestations and nature, severity and etiological factors. This concept includes both sexual disorders in the sense of deviations from social norms, and sexual disorders in the sense of deviations from medical norms.

Some authors identify the concepts of deviation and sexual perversion (perversions), which is wrong...

Just like the term “sexual potency”, the concept of sexual excitability has two meanings. Sexual excitability, estimated by the categories of the body’s reactions to the impact of the environment, especially on interpersonal influence *, indicates the degree of compliance, readiness and ease of occurrence of sexual arousal under the influence of external stimuli.
