Hello

This is a myth.

Masturbation is an activity which different people practice with different frequency at different ages.

There is no upper limit or lower limit for frequency of masturbation and therefore it cannot be defined what is over masturbation.

Masturbation does not affect the ability to get strong errections.

For the past 6 months I have been suffering with depression and anxiety, which has left me with a low libido and soft erections.. However I have still been masturbating on a regular basis. I'm scared I may have damaged my nervous system or something.

Thanks for replying.

Depression and anxiety can cause problems with erections.Certain drugs used for treating these conditions may also cause loss of libido.Masturbation is not responsible for any problems with erections or loss of libido.

You cannot damage your nervous system by masturbation.
