Question: Does masturbation actually cause blindness?

 Ross - Thu Aug 11, 2005 7:13 pm

I used to have very good eyes, infact they were better than all my friends, in the past two years they are gone so bad i can barely see someone 10 feet away from me, i have now found out that masturbation causes blindness, if so, and it is the cause will my eyes go back to normal if i stop masturbating or are they permantly ruined.

User avatar Hi Ross,
I would attribute the changes in your vision to other causes. To my knowledge, masturbation causing blindness is a myth.

Thanks, that makes me feel so much better.
