    Hi all,

    I discovered this thread which is really good general advice.

    https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/in-case-you-didnt-know.84619/

    One of the parts I just wanted to highlight is this section:

    IF YOU ENGAGE IN PRONE MASTURBATION (masturbation while on your stomach) STOP THIS BEHAVIOR NOW!!! YOU ARE HARMING YOURSELF!!!

    Please read the articles on prone masturbation if you are doing this – it’s very dangerous and will cause various issues.

    Thanks for sharing this! I've never thought about it, but it makes a lot of sense to why it could be more damaging and why i prefered it most of the time. Although towards the end I was doing it the conventional way because it was easier to watch porn. I started at a very young age doing it prone but at the time i didn't have any porn. Of course till i discovered the sears catalog had some great material lol

    I actually use too. But its been a while since i actually M. I have to sleep on my back, some body problems, so I think its some good months since I last M on my stomach. Sleeping on my back helps. Not sleeping on sides.

    Side effect of sleeping on back... increased wet dreams. When i sleep on my side, i use a pillow between my legs to keep some space and probably the discomfort, reduces urges. On my back, my mind rages with bullshit, till most times I just get up and go for walk.

    I have a question for you guys that masturbate prone...

    When you watched porn and realised that guys would rub their dicks with their hand to get their orgasm and cum (on the face, bum or boobs) why did you continue doing it prone?

    In my case, prone masturbation never occurred to me. But I feel that if I saw how masturbation is done by the majority of men I would have surely have copied that. It is not important, I am just curious. :)

    Another question would be, have you done some serious damage to your dick because of this method. I knew someone that tore his frenulum doing this! Oooouwch! :eek:

    I used to masturbate prone ever since I was 6 years old or something. Just thought it was "diddling myself" until I started researching about porn addiction and came over the phrase "prone masturbation." Anyways, switched to regular type after I started using computers to look at porn in college, hard to masturbate to internet porn while lying on your stomach (unlike the Sears and Kohls catalogs and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition). After a year or so of doing this that I gave up prone masturbation.

    I never experienced genital desensitivity or ED because of it. However, I do think I might have harmed myself physically. To this day whenever I urinate, it comes out in two streams. Not really that much of an issue, but it can be annoying.

    Anyways, if this is your method, I would recommend making the switch right away. You are gonna have your genitals for the rest of your life, treat 'em right, okay?

    I never tried the other method, doing it prone was how I first discovered it unfortunately. I didn't think it made any difference until I found that thread.

    This is really good timing for me. I masterbate this way and have been wondering how this is affecting my health. Thank you for posting this.

    This is the best approach.

    Some prone masturbators will say, "I will have to learn how to masturbate with my hand". :oops: But why? :confused:

    Whatever technique we use to masturbate, it is fake sex because we are trying to mimic a real sexual experience. o_O

    Agreed - trying to stop altogether is the plan

    As bad as this might be, I’m worried I masturbate excessively on my back. I can count the number of times I’ve reached climax while on all fours or standing on one hand. Can my body just get so used to the association between lying on your back and orgasm that it becomes impossible otherwise?

    Omg I honestly thought only I did this, please listen to my story

    I started prone fapping young like 7/8 I usually lay prone, put both my hands on my upper inner thigh then rub up and down. The only upside to this is you use your imagination a lot, I imagine me having intimate experience. In a way this is maybe worse...

    Anyway long story short I'm 28 now and I'm sure all my posture problems are caused because of this position which I can be in for 30-40min a time numerous timsz a day. I have terrible posture, severe apt, uneven hips and shoulders, my right hip is also tilted forward so when I stand relaxed both feet forwards my belly button is actually facing to the left by a big margin, my right leg is also really bent and I think it's caused because when you fap like this:

    -Shoulders Hunch up
    -High chance of knees pointing inwards so you're basically rotating your legs in then working the muscles to thrust in that position

    As the ThisIsYourBrainonPorn website states, I started prone masturbation by self-discovering it when I was very young. I M'd in this prone position ever since I was 4 or 5. It was the only way I could O until high school I finally did it with my hands, kind of by accident.

    But it really can mess you up. As they mention in the link, the extreme pressure on the base of the penis is really intense and pleasurable, and can make normal sex/other types of M'ing less satisfying.

    When I was like 15 or so, we had health class and they told us to inspect our testes for lumps (testicular cancer). I found this strange "lump" down there. Told my mom, we go to doctor. Turns out it was a varicose vein (similar to hemorrhoid) inside my scrotum, around my right testicle.

    I didn't put two-and-two together at the time, but looking back on it, I had just started using porn a lot at 13/14. My method was to watch a lot of P, but not MO, and then turn off computer, go upstairs, and then do prone masturbation.

    So after more research, varicose veins are caused by the breaking down of little gateways that push blood back out of an extremity. Then blood pools down there. My varicose vein in my testicle can be very painful/flare up after weightlifting, or rigourous excerise, or sexual activities.

    Also the shaft of my penis is twisted....I think this is all due to prone masturbation, and the extreme pressures on it. Some times I would even do something like "Locust Pose" from Hatha Yoga, putting all my body weight on the penis to derive these extreme orgasms.

    Now I have permanently damaged my body. I am thankful I can still have normal sex with a partner (no ED or anything), and the varicose vein doesn't hurt most of the time. But when it does, I think, "well this is my penance, my suffering to bear from all that evil poison I watched."
