    I'm a regular gym goer and I always enjoy moments when I know that I've been making gains, however when I masturbate I always think it causes muscle loss. I've researched this and most websites have said it does not cause muscle loss but I still seems to affect me psychologically. For example if I masturbate one day I think I look smaller the next day and I just blame on masturbation, conversely if I can abstain then I feel like I'm bigger even though I know it's not as a result of abstinence. As a result of all this I always feel depressed about myself and my body anytime I masturbate and I don't know what to do.

    Start believing the fact that it doesn't cause muscle loss. Kinsey proved that almost seventy years ago.

    What's probably happening is that unnecessary guilt over having masturbated is leading you to look at yourself differently. What does the tape measure say?

    Or you've spent three hours snoozing after having come, rather than lifting weights...
