Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 19 years old, male. I am prone to masturbation since a very young age, I tried to do normally and I fail to orgasm even though it seems close. I do ejaculate a bit, but I have to follow it up with prone masturbation. I do not have erectile dysfunction for now, do not know about later. I only try to do the normal masturbation for two minutes.

1. How long does it normally take to ejaculate and orgasm?

2. What possible effects does proceeding with prone masturbation have on me?

3. What methods should I follow to stop prone masturbation? I stopped masturbation all together for 16 days and it was really hard but I still needed prone.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Following are the answers to your questions.

1. Whenever a person ejaculates, the orgasm is simultaneously achieved in most of the cases. The interval between initiation of sexual stimulus and ejaculation or orgasm is depended upon the many factors and varies from person to person. It can be from less than two minutes to more than five minutes.

2. and 3. The masturbation can be done in any position. There are no side-effects of prone masturbation. It is a psychological feeling that you can erect penis in prone position only. You need to remove that thought and you can do masturbation in any position.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
