Excessive masturbation can shrink your penis; is this true?

According to http://www.library.ayurvediccure.com/over-masturbation/truth-about--masturbation.htm and other sources, excessive masturbation can shrink a male's penis. In short (unfortunate pun) it claims the shrinkage occurs for two reasons: firstly due to atrophy, caused by the physical exertion and energy deficits. And secondly because of physical damage and scarring (this is posited to occur because of the friction - which is minimized during actual sexual intercourse by natural lubricants).

It is also claimed in the article that 'overmasturbation' can cause vitamin deficiencies in various nutrients including zinc, acetylcholine and nitric oxide.

I found this article quite disconcerting since I masturbate, on average, 7-8 times a day. Therefore, I'd be interested to hear peoples' opinions on the validity and reliability of the information provided in this article.

Thanks.

yes but common sense should say to you that this study is totally false as if it were true, then having sex would also shrink your penis ?! It makes no sense...
One thing, when we have sex aren't we supposed to add lubricant, especially when using a condom? That infers that a womans "natural lubricant" isn't always sufficient right? Plus, I'm sure sexual intercourse is more physically exerting than a ****. So according to this article, wouldn't that mean sex is shrinking my penis too? I don't know.. correct me if I'm wrong.

you one horny fella. My limit is 4.
Holy cow, how do you find the time? And no, I doubt you can shrink the tissue or constrict blood flow from working it too hard.
Nah, what a load of tosh. File that one away with hairy palms and blindness and ... uh enjoy yourself I guess, not that you don't
7-8 per day haha that is ridiculous. My record is 11 times though I average between 1-3.

I hope not. Mines isn't big enough to be able to afford any shrinkage.
7-8 times! ...you have far too much time on your hands :P
Well obviously not, that would be silly... it's the opposite...

Yeah, 'time' :teehee:
It wouldn't have any physical adverse effects. But it has been shown that people who excessively masturbate are prone to depression

Well, like I said in my OP, sexual intercourse doesn't involve the same degree of friction as masturbation because of the natural lubrication in the vagina. But yes, with regards to the atrophy due to the physical 'cost' and energy deficit, it is implied that excessive sexual intercourse could shrink a man's penis.
