      Many people believe that Carpel Tunnel is caused from repetitive motion of wrists - however in truth if your diet supplies the bodies cells with enough anti oxidants all cells have enough elasticity to stretch and then go back to the correct shape.

      Thus if masturbation causes carpel tunnel it is because you play when it is dinner time too often.

      I'm getting hungry!

    You have just obliged me to learn something new. Not a bad thing!

    Carpal tunnel syndrome (note the spelling). . . .
    "There is little clinical data to prove whether repetitive and forceful movements of the hand and wrist during work or leisure activities can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. "

    However . . .
    "Women are three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome, perhaps because the carpal tunnel itself may be smaller in women than in men."

    Watch out ladies!

            A mystery hand is when you sit on your hand until it falls asleep and you....and it feels like someone elses hand. lololololol

      Of course it does.  Masturbation causes not only carpel tunnel but blindness, in lab rats; it also causes baldness in Rhesus monkeys.

    thranaxposted 8 years ago

    Yes, you can get it from doing any activities like that, including moving a mouse. Both aren't very far off from the same thing, other then arm position and what it is your doing with the mouse.

    There is a reason why we were built to use our legs to preform the same task.

    Now where is that feller Pest when we need him? Ain't he the one that wrote a hub on masturbation? He knows a lot about it, Vaseline, soap and socks. Oh yeah, that hub got yanked out from under him after two weeks of fun. Can't have too much fun 'round here no more, someone might just flag ya. wink Don't think he ever spoke about this tunnel thing though. Seems like that would be mighty painful down there.

    It can! Repetitive use injuries are quite common so it all depends on how often you engage. The good news is, with proper training and exercise you can overcome the pain!

    Not in to my knowledge. But I think if you post this in religious forum, you'll find all kinds of things that it causes, including God killing kittens, etc.

      LOL, I bought a friend of mine this packet of mints with a really cute picture of a kitten on the box. Underneath it said, "every time you masturbate God kills a kitten.... Stop, think of the kittens". She started to read it out loud in the vets surgery waiting room where she worked, and then stopped (just in time), and doubled up laughing.
