Hi there to all of you out there wishing to remain anonymous. There have been more than 500 hits on this one-liner & hence its safe to presume this is an important topic for the public & relevant enough for all the views attained. I note there are physicians of all specialities commenting on the same as masturbation is a universal topic. I note with interest that our gynecology friends' shy away from this topic.

Masturbation had its origins as a coined word from latin..manu (mannus..hand) + stuprare (defilement)...this underwent further modification over the years to its current accepted form from about the 15th century AD. An earlier technical word for it was 'Onanism'! This latter term is derived from hebrew after 'Onan' who was the second son of Judah & who after his older brother's (Er) death was ordered by his father to impregnate Er's wife to continue the family line...but for reasons best known to himself, withdrew while ejaculating & 'spilled' his 'seed' on the ground. Make of it what you will but this probably led to his being killed for it & the act of spilling seed deemed henious!

The Kamasutra refers to masturbation & its technique & i quote..."Churn your instrument with a lion's pounce: sit with legs stretched out at right angles to one another, propping yourself up with two hands planted on the ground between in them, and it between your arms"

Masturbation is practiced in women as much as men & i often wonder why not as many women ask about it as men. It is not the sole domain of men. In fact, given our particular indian culture, it is a far more useful tool for women to achieve orgasm & for their well-being & the great Sigmund Freud in fact used it as a medical 'treatment' for 'hysteria' in women with great results & probably was the advent of the 'vibrator'!

Closer home to the question at hand, Yes i can understand your 'subjective' feeling of 'fever' after masturbation & this is well documented. It is on account of a raise in BMR (Basal metabolic rate) & a purely 'physiological' response & normal. Sometimes, it may even be accompanied by giddiness & feeling of 'light headedness' more in women & is a normal feature & related to the parasympathetic nervous system & again, purely 'physiological'..so you have nothing to worry about.

I do hope i have given you a brief insight into masturbation; convinced you there is NO harm; Good for BOTH Men & Women & does have its advantages; Better, Safer & more Discreet than actually seeking out sex when in need & does NOT require any protection & comes Free of the Fear of any Infections.

Good Luck people & please feel free to ask any queries or doubts or technical questions in person or discretely if you so wish (especially women) using the "ASK-A-Doctor" premium feature or in person (either from yours truly or any other specialist nearest you whose address & nos. you may get from our healthcaremagic website).

Cheers!

It's a myth that masturbation is harmful and you need to restore energy by eating more after the act. It's totally harmful and even safe-act by avoiding unprotected sex as well it could help train your penile, perennial muscles to avoid premature ejaculation during actual sex.

even i experienced this ! masturbation is not completely harmless ! only was to combat this is by reducing the time between masturbation say like in 1 week, once. after i changed my mastrbation time to 2weeks per masturbation , i never had this problem ! also eat healthy foods and exercise to increase the levels of testosterone , which is needed for the body . trust me . this works ! just try it out for yourself !

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Masturbation has no relation with fever.
It may be due to stress mediated phenomenon during masturbation.
So don't worry.
Best wishes.

Hi..Mastubation is completely harmless. The hormonal/neuronal changes may be responsible for the rise in temperature...
