In terms of sperm stagnation in men, there is no difference.

In terms of emotional unloading - everything is individual

In terms of physical activity, both sexes have a difference. Coitus is an excellent physical activity for the prevention of heart and vascular diseases. Masturbation will not give such effects

Answer 2

I agree with the above. But I will add more from myself. Masturbation is very useful for girls, not even in terms of health, but in terms of pleasure, the more she stimulates the clitoris, the easier it is for her partner to handle it later. Many women who refuse to masturbate tend to have no orgasm or decreased sensitivity. For a guy, frequent reckless masturbation is harmful, the body spends a lot of energy on the production of sperm, which can be put into work, sports or sex) So it's better not to abuse it.

From the point of view of basic physiological reactions - perhaps not.

But the psychological component differs significantly. When having sex with another person (strictly speaking, masturbation is also a sexual act), a lot of useful things are experienced. For example, tenderness, acceptance, aggression, self-affirmation, discovery - through sexual intimacy with a new person - new facets of oneself. Since our body still functions as a kind of psychophysiological unity, the final answer will still be - yes, it is different.

... But about the "sperm components necessary for a woman" (then these are prostaglandins) - it seems no, nothing particularly necessary - this is to the old legends))

(Eeee ... about expertise: once an obstetrician-gynecologist)))
