Dear Leg & Back Pain After Masturbation,

FX cannot say for sure why you are experiencing leg and back pain when you masturbate, but our guess is that it's probably because of muscle tension. When you become sexually excited, muscle tension builds up in your body, and releases during orgasm. You might try concentrating on keeping your legs and back more relaxed when you masturbate, or even try masturbating in a new position. If the pain keeps up and causes concern, you should make an appointment with your doctor or healthcare provider. If you do not have a doctor and you live in northern New Jersey, please call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at (973) 971.6475. If you live elsewhere, get in touch with your local adolescent health center or clinic.
