This question already has an answer here:

Did you know that plain and simple, over-masturbation will lead to sexual under performance by way of premature ejaculation, as well as other sexual problems. “Over-production of sex hormones” Normally, masturbation is a healthy sexual behavior. But like other behaviors, when over practiced it (maximum 2 times a week) can lead to both psychological and physiological imbalances. Frequent masturbation and ejaculation will stimulate the acetylcholine/parasympathetic nervous functions. Excessive masturbation and ejaculation can, and often times will, result in over-production of sex hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin. An unnatural abundance of these hormones and neurotransmitters can cause the brain and adrenal glands to perform excessive dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion, in turn, making the brain and bodily functions perform at an extreme level. In other words, there is a huge change in body chemistry when one masturbates excessively.1

    Could you please work out the relevant claim and leave out irrelevant details, focusing on one point, please? A quoted wall of text won’t elicit many answers, I fear. – Konrad Rudolph Mar 7 '13 at 14:19
  • The quote contains elements of scientific observation wrapped up in far too much opinion and conjecture, all presented as if its fact. There is little doubt that our persistent behaviours in any area have long term effects on how our brain deals with our body, but there is no reason to have confidence in this persons competence in this area. The advice is given on a homeopathy and health forum by people identified as "non-medical professionals". All that said, it seems likely that there is the potential for frequent masturbation to affect a tendency to premature ejaculation in some people. – Russell McMahon Mar 7 '13 at 14:23

    I've been conducting a detailed study on this for over a decade and so far I can report no ill effects what-so-ever. Although admittedly my sample size is only 1. – Ian Mar 7 '13 at 14:23
