Yo! This is a wide topic to discuss but here are a few things you may need to understand about masturbation, locally known as “Kasabuni”.
But first, the introduction; Ye masturbation “bye biki?” It is the sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm. The stimulation may involve the use of one’s hands, fingers, everyday objects, sex toys like vibrators, or combinations of all these. “Kasabuni” is frequent in both sexes and can be at any age.
So, what do you need to know about it? Here we go;
Masturbation is not an escape from contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Nigga you can actually contract an STI through musturbation. Wondering how? Some pips may have “close buddies” with whom they share sex toys and this leaves them at a high risk of contracting STIs. Let no one lie to you that it is impossible or you cannot contract a sexually transmitted infection through masturbation. Be careful.
It is actually addictive. Y’all know how addictive watching some series can become. That feeling of watching the first season of Game of Thrones or Prison Break and yearning for more and more seasons never wanting the series to stop. Now, “Kasabuni” can become worse than this. It gets very addictive and can harm your relationships and other parts of your life. It may also interrupt your work or studies by lowering your productivity.
You risk having that object getting stuck. Like earlier mentioned, some people use objects like dildos to pleasure themselves. But did you know that both babes and dudes can fall prey to this problem? Well, now you know. Masturbation can be a nightmare especially when the object (s) used gets stuck in your “nankani.” This can be very problematic and a danger to your genital system.
Decreased sexual sensitivity. Hey lads, like the saying goes; “Too much of anything is dangerous.” When masturbation gets aggressive or excessive, it may lead to reduced sexual sensitivity. This mainly happens in dudes. masturbation that involves having a tight grip on the penis, can cause your genitalia to experience decreased sensation over some time.
Suicide and masturbation. We may have pals who have fallen victim to suicide or even have heard about a young person who died because they committed suicide. You may not believe it but some of these suicides occur as a result of the stigma around masturbation. Even though many medical professionals and scientists have found large amounts of evidence that masturbating is healthy and commonly practiced, stigma on the topic still persists today in various communities. Many young people are often afraid to admit that they masturbate and this is likely to bring guilt amongst them hence having suicidal thoughts.
