Medical Breakthrough: Effects of Chronic Masturbation

The things we learn in med school...

Well, this actually wasn't covered in class. It was passed on to me by a fellow classmate. Nonetheless, I found it just too... unique... to not post immediately.

Chronic penile oedema secondary to chronic masturbation. Int J STD AIDS. 2004. Jul;15(7):489-90.

*Added 15 Feb in response to comment:
Oedema, more commonly spelled edema, is swelling of tissues due to excessive fluid accumulation.

Thank goodness it's only two pages.

I'm flattered you're putting my pubmed discoveries on your blog. Sadly, I have so many more... I tend to over-procrastinate causing chronic failure.
