She loves sex and masturbation as much as her boyfriend, to the glee of both of them. In fact, she cannot go more than a few hours without sex. But her passion has caused a problem in that her nerves are desensitized in both her clitoris and vagina. It’s recommended she take an herbal formula to repair damaged nerves and cleanse her body.

Concern:

My female friends often tell me, “Lauren, you should have been born a man!” And my boyfriend tells me, “I’m glad your sex drive is as high as my own!” I love sex. So what! I cannot go a whole day, let alone a few hours, without sex. I need it. I desire it. When my boyfriend is away, I masturbate. Now, to be clear, I masturbate to him. But now I worry my habits have ruined my body.

Discussion:

The old adage that too much of a good thing can hurt certainly applies in this situation. Engaging in intercourse and masturbation are natural ways to express your sexuality. They both feel good and impart such health benefits as stress reduction and pain relief. But just because sex feels good doesn’t mean you’re free to over-indulge. If you do, expect health problems to ensue.
 
The Drug-Like Effects of Sex
Pleasure of all degrees starts in the brain. While sex and masturbation stimulate genitals, the enjoyment you feel is made possible by the brain. Nerves in the clitoris and vagina send messages to the brain that are interpreted as satisfying. These messages also activate the brain’s pleasure center, known for its function of “rewarding” the body. A sense of reward comes from many different activities, including exercising and eating, because they ignite the desire to repeatedly engage.
 
These acts vary in nature but contain one common element: they stimulate high levels of dopamine. Dopamine is released at the onset of arousal, meaning it is present throughout the duration of sex or masturbation. Orgasm produces a final push of this chemical with various opiates to make the pleasure almost unbearably intense.
 
Understanding these chemicals is key to understanding why you crave sex. Yes, part of that craving is hormonal, but dopamine can in and of itself trigger addiction. Orgasm has been likened to the high produced by street drugs because it activates the same pleasure center of the brain. You thus need to be careful when indulging in sex each and every day; it can come to rule your life.

Why Masturbation Hurts
Over-masturbation hurts on two different levels. The first is psychological, in which you become sexually exhausted. This term sounds like you’re fatigued, but the reality is that your body is flooded with an abundance of hormones. You thus start to experience side effects like clitoral and vaginal desensitization.
 
The other impact of masturbation is physical. Just like the nerves in your arms and legs, those of the clitoris and vagina are intended for occasional stimulation. Repeated and direct contact desensitizes the nerves. Keep in mind the clit alone contains 8,000 nerve endings that extend to more than 15,000 total throughout the pelvic region. Over-stimulating just this organ can have consequences on the vagina and select parts of the abdomen.
 
Use of a vibrator and/or dildo can be particularly harmful. These devices are made to stimulate genitalia, but they are without the ability to gauge any harm they might cause. They also move at increasing speeds and intensity to allow you to personalize your experience. This can enhance pleasure but also means you’re likely to cause more damage. In addition, as you start to lose sensitization, you must automatically increase stimulation in order to render the ultimate result – orgasm. This, too, causes still more damage.
 
Restore Sensitivity and Pleasure
Desensitization is your body’s way of telling you it needs a break. Stop masturbating and/or engaging in intercourse for at least a few days and take your mind off sex with other activities you enjoy.
 
As you rest, you can speed up your body’s healing process with a natural formula designed to enhance sexual response and sensitivity. (SEE: Herbal Remedy for Vaginal & Clitoral Revitalization) People have used herbs throughout the centuries to remedy a variety of maladies. This blend contains such ingredients as Grape Seed and Evening Primrose Oil to repair damaged nerve endings and restore balance to hormones. You will quickly regain sexual pleasure and achieve orgasm with renewed vigor.
