Question

Every night for me to sleep i have to masturbate.I now do masturbation as a night sleeping tablet.Will this affect me mentality? Since the sperms will dry on my bed will any body who gets to the dried sperms get the virus.Is it health to masturbate while 40 years old? How can i stop it?

Answer

Masturbation is a normal activity that is part of a healthy sex life which has no negative effect on mental status. It can be an effective way to relax and improve sleep. Unlike your pattern, compulsive masturbation and/or sexual preoccupation can indicate a problem which needs to be addressed. HIV is a relatively fragile virus when exposed and dried sperm on your sheets does not indicate a transmission risk.
