Masturbation

 

(also onanism), a surrogate form of sexual satisfaction in which the erogenous zones—most often the genital organs—are artificially stimulated for the purpose of producing orgasm. Masturbation is widespread in the animal world. Most often in humans it is practiced at the age of puberty and no longer after a sex life is established. It is associated principally with sociosexual disharmony, which is caused by an awakening of sexuality before the individual is socially mature. The negative effects of masturbation are caused primarily by fear of consequences and can lead to neurosis.
