Excessive sex / masturbation by no means is the only cause of erection dysfunction or health problems. There are wide variety of different causes of loss of virility. When everything works on maximal strength, there is great virility and strength.


If you need to force erection, or have health symptoms after sex/masturbation then you did do damage to your body. It depends entirely on what is your body's healing rate and how big are your internal organs energy levels: how much you can afford for sex so that ejaculation/porn does not cause any problems or weakness.

Staying healthy is all about of staying in balance and living as natural life as possible. Everything we do affects our body and mind in some way. Body will affect the mind and mind will affect the body. We will be just fine if we favor natural approaches, practice correct breathing, learn to relax and 'let go', eat organic foods, drink clean water and avoid doing anything in excess. By avoiding negative emotions and thoughts, we create the correct circumstances for healing. Negative thoughts easily create heat and stagnations to our internal organs, which will eventually start causing various problems and symptoms. You may already know the destructive effect of stress, sorrow or hate.

Read the forum about other causes of disease/sickness.




"The body must invest a lot of essence and energy to fully replenish semen supplies and re-establish proper hormone balance after a man ejaculates.

When ejaculation frequency exceeds the capacity of the body to fully replenish semen, men experience chronic fatigue, low resistance, irritation and other symptoms of essence and energy deficiency. They also lose all sexual interest in their partners, who may well be ready for more action.

An ejaculation should leave a man feeling as light and refreshed as a woman feels after orgasm- not exhausted, empty and uninterested in further sex.

Every man must establish his own ideal emission rate as an overall guideline, but he must also consider the unique circumstances of each occasion before deciding whether it is appropriate to ejaculate or not."

"THERE are two classes of sexual disorders in men, the venereal diseases or infections on the one hand, and the various sexual weaknesses and disturbances of function on the other. Through proper instruction and right living both, however, may be avoided. "

"The prevalence of sexual weaknesses is one of the most amazing conditions with which our civilization is threatened. Everywhere one finds great numbers of men lacking in the first essential of manhood—virility."

Well, if this text was written one hundred years ago, the doctors back then would probably classify most of todays men sexually weak.

"The medical quacks find here a profitable field in which to enrich themselves."

Because this is so importance issue to many men, guys like Dr. Lin are quick to use this as an advantage.

"In considering this lack, or lessening, of virility, often called "lost manhood," the first need is to understand its causes. If the cause or causes can be discovered in each individual case, it simplifies the problem of finding the correct remedial treatment, which of course must include the removal of these causes."

You have to eliminate and find the causes of your problems, you will not succeed by just looking for a remedy to overcome the symptoms.

"Virility, like health, is natural, and a natural life invariably means virility and all the superb mental and physical qualities associated there-with. Impairment or loss of virility is, in every instance, the result of an unnatural life, involving abuses or excesses of various kinds. The influences tending to destroy virility may be of two kinds, those which directly affect the generative system and those which indirectly affect it through lowering the tone of the entire bodily organism. In other words, virility is affected on the one hand by abuses of the generative system itself, and on the other hand by abuses of the body as a whole, as for instance through the use of alcohol or tobacco."


"A point which cannot be emphasized too strongly is that loss of virility is not a condition which concerns merely the sexual organs, but one that means also a loss of energy and impairment of function throughout the whole body, involving, in most instances, a failing of mental faculties. Nothing indicates this more clearly than the difficulty of mental concentration in hard, sustained work that is experienced by those suffering in a marked degree from weaknesses of this type. The loss of memory that follows too frequent seminal drains shows very plainly the relation of virility and healthy sexuality to mental vigor."

You can see the relation of memory problems, concentration problems and mental problems with sexual weaknesses already on this forum.

"Masturbation is undoubtedly the first and most important of all the causes of sexual weakness. Not only, is it the active cause of trouble in by far the greater number of cases, but it is especially serious because it commonly begins earlier in life than other abuses. Owing to the importance of this. particular practice in causing both sexual and general debility I shall devote a special chapter to it. If this one evil could be eliminated it would save literally millions of men from sexual weakness and the generally lowered vitality that accompanies it."

"Sexual excesses of any kind, whether within or without the sphere of marriage, tend to weaken and destroy virility."

"There are various abnormal and unnatural practices which are just as harmful as masturbation, in some instances even more so, and which may even be classed with masturbation.

Among these are unnatural methods of inter-course, which, if long continued, tend to bring on either impotence or other serious weaknesses associated with congestion of the prostate gland and other parts of the generative system. The most widespread of these practices is coitus interruptus, often spoken of as "withdrawal." This consists in terminating the sexual relation just previous to the climax, or moment of highest in-tensity. This naturally involves a severe shock to the nerve centers concerned and cannot fail to be injurious both locally and to the general system. It is debilitating to the man, but it is usually an outrage upon the woman. The relation, if entered into at all, should be carried through in an absolutely natural manner, resulting in the orgasm or climax being experienced by both husband and wife. If this does not occur, then it is devitalizing in its effect. Men who practice this method of intercourse for a term of years gradually experience a lessening of power, the ejaculation either being retarded or becoming more and more premature, and also develop a train of symptoms characteristic of nervous disorders as well as digestive and other functional disturbances. "

Maybe prolonging the erection is not so good after all. I know taoist teachers have their methods for seminal circulation and withdrawing from orgasm but it is highly unlikely one can master these methods unless years of practice. Many men on the forum have also masturbated too much at one time ( me included ) so this has been extra burden to the body.


"Another injurious practice is the attempt to prolong the marital act beyond natural limits. The direct effect of this is to bring about a serious congestion of all the parts concerned, though it is probably most exhausting to the nerve centers involved. Of course the sexual act can only be prolonged by stopping it from time to time. Even then, if it is finally terminated in a natural manner, the result is not so bad as when the attempt is made to avoid the orgasm entirely. This is thoroughly unnatural and invariably harmful in the long run."


"If one wishes to conserve vital energy by avoiding the waste of the spermatic fluid, then the way to do it is to live a continent life, free from sexual excitement of any kind. Or, if not a completely celibate life, one in which temperance in the marital relation results naturally from obedience to a wife's normal instincts, as suggested in previous chapters. To avoid waste of this fluid it is not necessary to practice absolute continence, and certainly there can be no advantage in achieving such an end by the sexually exciting and yet unnatural practice of engaging in sexual relation-ships in which the orgasm is suppressed. The harm done to the nervous centers, under such conditions, and the congestion of the parts will more than offset the fancied advantage of retaining the seminal fluid. If the passions have been aroused to the extent of demanding the sexual act, and if it has been entered into, then it should be concluded naturally."

"Whether continence is harmful or not—a question which has been very widely discussed, with much difference of opinion—depends almost entirely upon whether or not one can live a life comparatively free from sexual excitement. If one can avoid sexual stimulation, it is both easy and beneficial to live a completely continent life. But if one has very strong sexual instincts and one's passions are frequently aroused, then continuous abstinence would not only be difficult but unsatisfactory in its influence on the general health."

If you forcefully try to avoid sexual practices, you might not do too good to yourself because it is un-natural.


"To avoid sexual excitement it is not alone necessary to avoid the physical intimacies above mentioned. Erotic thoughts will do just as much harm, and after the habit of stimulating the sexual centers mentally has once been formed it is likely to be very persistent and insidious in its influence. This sensual state of mind keeps the sex centers in a state of constant excitement and the organs concerned in a state of congestion. It leads to prostate trouble, urethral congestion and irritability, varicocele, and a general weakening of the entire function. This habit can best be described by the term, "mental masturbation," and the fact is that after a time, as a result of its weakening effect, it becomes possible for the victim to induce an emission merely through his thoughts. Of course this indicates that he has reached a condition of serious weakness."

Now, you can see why pornographic material is so harmful. Also, if you practice this "mental masturbation" it can also lead to these extreme symptoms. Again, cases are found on the forum already.


"The general bodily influences which tend to destroy virility may be said to include almost everything that lowers vitality and weakens the body as a whole, and particularly anything that acts as a poison to the system."


"Drugs and stimulants of all kinds are, similarly destructive to virility. There are certain drugs which are supposed to be sexually stimulating, but in the end they will be found to be injurious. Remember that anything which over-stimulates the sexual centers will only tend to exhaust them the sooner."

Yes, we have known this for a long time and indeed it is true. If I remember correctly, many exhausted men have said some supplements worked for a while, but in the end they left his body more exhausted

"And while we are talking about the effect of drugs in producing impotence or sexual weakness, it should be said that medical literature has much to answer for in this respect. It is true that the greater burden of blame falls upon medical quacks, but the fact is that standard medical works are quite as apt as the quack to advise treatment which robs the patient of what little vigor he may still have had when he applied for relief. I have had any number of letters from men telling of their experiences with medical treatment, and pointing out that after a course of medication, usually the taking of bromides, their power steadily declined, complete impotence being the outcome in many cases."

See above, its getting too easy and clear now.

"The medical profession as a whole has never given much study to the subject of sexual weakness. For a long period venereal diseases were practically ignored, perhaps on the theory that the victim deserved punishment for his moral transgressions. But while as much attention is now given to venereal as to other diseases, the same cannot be said of other sexual disorders. The great reason why quacks and charlatans have been able practically to take possession of this field is that the reputable members of the profession know but little about it and have ignored it."


"All bodily influences of a debilitating nature tend to lessen virility. Anything that lowers vitality or weakens the constitution cannot fail to have some injurious effect upon reproductive strength. Nerve-strain, especially, has a weakening effect, and many years of mental overwork, such as is conducive to neurasthenia, may be the cause of serious weakness in the sex function or even of partial impotence. Naturally, we must distinguish between overwork and hard work, for a healthy, virile man, living under right conditions, can do a prodigious amount of hard mental work and still remain vigorous. Hard work does not hurt one. Under proper conditions it is the very best thing for one. But when it is carried too far, when the bodily health is not conserved by daily periods of exercise and outdoor life, when a man loses sleep year after year through working day and night, and especially when his labors are carried on in the face of worries and trials that involve excessive nerve-strain, the system will eventually break down, and virility will suffer at the same time."


"Underwork is a condition likewise unfavorable to the highest degree of virility, for the reason that with too much loafing the body as a whole deteriorates, and all the organs suffer in common. It is only when living an active life that one can be at one's best. Vigorous exercise, or good hard work each day, both physical and mental, are highly desirable both for one's general welfare and reproductive strength. A great objection to underwork, too, is that idleness, in the case of one lacking in character, permits the mind to dwell too much upon erotic fancies. Also, in some instances, the failure to use the energy of the body in legitimate ways sometimes leads the idler to divert an unnecessary and undesirable amount of it to sexual channels."

We did sit in our homes masturbating, and maybe the too much idle time is the problem to this together with computers / net.


"Social dissipations, especially when they involve much excitement, are as bad as, or worse, than mental overwork. It is all a question of the amount of nerve-strain involved. Late hours and excitement are among the very worst of dissipations. It used to be thought that dissipation meant smoking, drinking and other immoral behavior, but one can be dissipated while doing none of these objectionable things, simply because one is wasting one's forces. Novels and plays of an exciting, stirring character, too much indulged in, have a decidedly weakening effect. The same is true of worry and other depressing mental states. I do not mean to say that a short period of worry, in the case of one possessing vigorous sexual health, will have the effect of producing any material disorder, but it is true that a state of worry and mental depression, continued over a long period of time, will not only undermine the health generally but the reproductive system as will. Sexual weaknesses are a common source of worry. Many cases of impotence are of a "psychic" character, the result of long brooding or worrying over weaknesses or mistakes of the past, until the victim is unable to utilize even such strength as he may possess. But the more he worries over it the worse the condition be-comes. This, however, is a matter to be taken up in detail later."

"An appreciation of these various causes of sexual weakness will enable the reader to judge somewhat of the requirements of his own case. To know the cause of the trouble is half the battle. In most cases of impaired or lost virility favorable results may be expected by avoiding the causes of the weakness in the future, and by building up the body and increasing vitality. Definite results cannot be promised in all cases, for the results will, to a certain extent, depend upon the character of the abuses to which one's body has been subjected, and the extent to which they have been carried. Nature will work wonders, however, if given a chance, and the methods which I will outline in the following chapters have accomplished remarkable results in the cases of thousands of sufferers from these various disorders."
