Clearly the people in the 1800s would have been much better off if these study results had been discovered sooner:


Male Anti-Masturbation Devices


In the late 1800s, masturbation was thougtht to cause everything from insanity to acne. So, it HAD to be deterred.


1. Early Basic Models



2. Spermatorrhoea Ring


6. The Cage



Via the 1885 Handbook of Medicine, "it offered its clients a metal cage that could be used to foil the urge to reach out and touch yourself. Unlike many other macabre designs, it was spike free and actually allowed erections, merely ensuring that nothing came of them."


7. Penis Cooling Device

A literal cold shower, patented by Frank Orth in 1893. It required the donning of waterproof pants, and then the organ was place between two levers, so that should stiffening occur, the levers were spread which caused a flow of cold water to hit the hot spot. Said Orth: "The cold water...cools the organ of generation, so that the erection subsides and no discharge occurs."

Abstaining from masturbating RAISES risk of anxiety, depression and erectile dysfunction, study warns


Participating in 'NoFap' techniques may lead to devastating mental health issues, a study suggests.


Born out of groups on Reddit, the 'NoFap' movement urges men to avoid masturbation to boost confidence, focus and even cure erectile dysfunction. Those who abide by the practice even call themselves 'Fapstronauts'. 


Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) surveyed 587 men who had taken part in the abstinence practice.


They found that men said they felt worthless, shame, sad and in some cases suicidal when they 'relapsed'. They were also more likely to report erectile dysfunction.


Experts support occasional masturbation and sex for its many health benefits. One Harvard University study even found that men who ejaculate at least 21 times a month slash their risk of prostate cancer by a third.

Sex shop gives staff 'self-love' day off so they can 'get to grips' with masturbation


Horny staff working at a top sex shop are being given one day for a very special reason.


Employees of Amorana in Switzerland are not working today (Friday, May 12) so that they can “get to grips” with pleasuring themselves.


The shop is based in Opfikon, Zurich Canton.


It is hoped that the day off will allow the staff to boost their mental health levels.


Amorana's Head of Marketing Isabelle Schmid said: “A healthy and happy sex life involves much more than just toys.


“Self-love takes many forms and masturbation is just one of them.

Origins of masturbation traced to primates 40 million years ago


Evolutionary biologists have traced the origins of masturbation to pre-ancient primates 40 million years ago.


According to new research, self-pleasuring served as an ‘evolutionary purpose’ as it protected men against sexually transmitted diseases and boosted their fertility.


Female masturbation boosts libido and soothes period cramps, according to the scientists.


The study found primates masturbated more than other members of the animal kingdom and it is an older practice than previously believed.


"Our findings help shed light on a very common, but little understood, sexual behaviour and represent a significant advance in our understanding of the functions of masturbation,” Dr Matilda Brindle, lead author of the University College London study, said.
