The above sculpture shows that there were no inhibitions on masturbation, in some Indian sub-cultures, in some particular geographical areas like Madhya Pradesh. Other Indian cultures have not encouraged masturbation, because semen was regarded as valuable, and limited for humans. Belief: The maximum quantity of semen every male human gets from his Creator, is limited to one double-handful of his hands. Bachelors and celebates should try to preserve their semen for future use.
SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT VIEW IN AYURVEDIC TEXTS (TRADITIONAL INDIAN MEDICINE)
SEMEN is regarded as one of the seven faecuses (excretions). 1. sweat 2. stools 3. urine 4. discharges from eyes 5. discharges from nose 6. discharges from ears. 7. Semen.
If semen is regarded as faecus, it will have to be excreted through ejaculation. The Ayurvedic Texts have not expressly recommended / prohibited masturbation. But Vatsayana kAmasutras an Indian Treatise on Sex, views masturbation negatively.
Many INDIAN YOUTH INDULGE SECRETLY
Since many male Indians seem to believe that their openly engaging in masturbation, will make others, particularly fathers of brides to believe that the groom has been weakened by losing his semen. Hence, Indian male individuals even if they indulge in masturbation, they do not accept or disclose it openly. It is done only secretly.

WESTERN VIEWAccording to the Western Researchers, there no benefits accrue by preserving one's own semen. Like mucus, semen is secreted by glands, and will get self-excreted in due course, even if a person does not indulge in masturbation.

All the Western Websites stress on release of dopamine (chemical which motivates brain for rewards). Their analyses are mainly based on physiology.
Next blog post in this series will deal with non-physiological aspects of masturbation, both male and female. Stress will be more on socio-economic issues.
Ques: Don't write like gODa mIda pilli (cat on wall). Write specifically, whether you support masturbation or not.
Medical Doctors and qualified andrologists may be the proper persons to answer this question, from the point of view of personal physical and mental health of individuals.
SOCIAL MERITS AND, PERSONAL CONVENIENCE BENEFITS OF MASTURBATION
At this blog, we can only answer from the SOCIAL, and PERSONAL CONVENIENCE point of view. When compared to begging partners (male/female/transsexuals whoever they are) for sexual favors, meeting all types of demands from them --demands on time, money, severing relations with other relatives and family members, friends, accepting their arrogance, intrusions, rudeness, greed, obscenities and vulgarities, it always seem to be better-off living with self-love.
Masturbation is just a matter of chemistry of serotonin and dopamine balance in brain, and physical/emotional relaxation of individuals. Though on a first look, it may appear as though, a masturbating person may regard him-herself as lacking self-control, one need not be very touchy about it. It is only a little of loss of seminal fluid, and some futile efforts. In fact, masturbation can prevent persons from becoming rapists and criminals. A masturbating self-loving person will be blackmail-proof and blackmail-resistant against invading partners. Masturbation is a great insulator, apart from being a stress-reliever.
Ques: Won't married sexual lives of individuals be disrupted?
Ans: Ordinarily, a person does not resort to masturbation, when his-her partner co-operates, when his-her partner is reasonable in making demands, is moderate in arrogance and interference into activities not connected to married life. When a partner makes unreasonable demands, the other suffering partner cannot continuously accede to such demands, and hurt others, so as just to satisfy the spouse in exchange for sexual favors. Then, the suffering partner cannot immediately go for a divorce and start a fresh married life.
Second and subsequent marriages/relationships/dates can also generate undue demands.Apart from the legal and financial problems involved in divorces, the suffering partner when starts a fresh life from a new partner, the new partner can also make unreasonable demands. This is an unending, unpredictable cycle with possibilities of recurrences.
