Many experts recommend that adults learn how to masturbate for a whole host of reasons: it helps you learn about your own body, it means you don't have to rely on a partner for sexual stimulation and orgasm, and it has a reputation for being a stress-buster and general health boost. It's also cool if you don't masturbate, of course; not masturbating is also perfectly normal and healthy, so don't feel as if you're being left behind while everybody else runs around on the Touching Themselves Train. But what's actually happening in your body and your brain while you're stimulating yourself? And is it substantively different than what goes on when you have sex with a partner? Masturbation has had a particularly difficult reputation over the years; humans have been warned away from it by threats of hairy palms, madness and going blind. No, none of this is true.

Background: Normal anal vein-containing-cushions are located in the wall of the rectum and anus and may become enlarged symptomatically and displaced to the distal of the anal canal and form the hemorrhoids. Multiple predisposing factors have been proposed for hemorrhoid development. Hypothesis: We hypothesized that frequent and lengthy masturbation is a predisposing factor for development of hemorrhoid. Rarionable and Discussion: During masturbation, impaired venous return and consequently congestion of blood in the anal cushions and engorgement of the hemorrhoid plexus occurs. We found, through a literature review, that other conditions which enhance the development of hemorrhoids act by a similar mechanism in which venous return is impaired.
