      Unfortunately, masturbation has some negative effects that range from physical injuries-such as bruising and burst blood vessels. However, the most negative effect of masturbation is its tendency to result in addiction. when someone mustarbates, the body releases hormones and chemicals such as dopamine which the brain easily becomes addicted to. This results in dependancy so that people addicted to masturbation might end up not being able to carry out proper functions such as sleeping, etc unless they have had a ‘dose’.
