Does anyone else view Masturbation as unhealthy/ against human nature?

I just dont see how a caveman for that matter would waste time/energy on the act of self pleasuring, . I firmly believe it is only used to pregnate a women, And since we lose lots of valuable vitamins/minerals in sperm I think its bad to do it excessively for the health of humans. How many WILD animals do you see out there doing this? NONE.

I just read that a man loses 5mg zinc every time - but I haven't confirmed it. Guess I better up my zinc intake!

Really? I can't believe that anyone could be so naive, repressed or stupid as to ask such a daft question. John Quincer (I'm thinking "John The Wincer" MUST be a troll.

As George Carlin once said "This guy over here has his pants full of little Debbies and little Timmies". Between Carlin and Python, 'tis a good time all together.

Try getting someone to do it for you. I mean then it's not true masturbation but you don't have to feel like you are going against nature. They are, damnit. You can even wear a sack over your head.

Also, if you are concerned about losing nutrients through semen or vaginal secretions, you've got bigger problems on your plate.

Dogs, cats, lions, bears, and a number of other mammals self-stimulate with their front paws; randy walruses use their flippers. Horses and donkeys, whose masturbatory habits have been particularly well-studied, engage in "rhythmic bouncing, pressing, or sliding of the erect penis against the abdomen" (PDF); male deer do the same. The 19th-century physiologist Karl Friedrich Burdach has even described something like female ejaculation among solitary mares, which "rub themselves against whatever obstacles they find, often spurting a white, viscous mucus." A bull, meanwhile, stimulates itself by alternately protruding its penis from a genital sheath, while some moose can ejaculate simply by rubbing their antlers on bits of vegetation. According to observations made at the University of Buffalo in the 1940s, both male and female porcupines manipulate their genitals with inanimate objects???they're also known to "seize, straddle, and ride sticks about the cage."

It appears that there are many reasons for masturbation, even though it may seem like a "waste of energy". There are theories about it with wild animals, and I'm not really an expert in that. But I know that humans also masturbate for pleasure, such as in times of stress and anxiety or even boredom. Even toddlers masturbate, not because of sexual needs, but because the brain releases "feel good" chemicals during the process. It's considered a healthy part of development. I would say that since humans these days have goals on earth extend far beyond just food and shelter, masturbating makes sense. Why not? It's self-medication in a way.

I would prefer to have sex, but if she doesn't want to it's called rape.

SIGH I probably shouldn't do this, as it seems to be a troll...

If this is not an attempt at trollint, I'd suggest a little Google research before posing the question.

Dude, I have a cat and he knows how to use his tongue on himself. Many, many animals masturbate and I am positive cavemen did it as well.

Anyone else reminded of the 'precious bodily fluids' quote from Dr. Strangelove?
