More happiness in a relationship correlates with less masturbation.

And big surprise, LOL (irony here), if people have a lot of partner sex, they tend to masturbate very little.

Who knew???

Interesting new study finds that - contrary to the sexology advice of the last decades - more masturbation and more partners do not increase women's ability to orgasm during partnered sex.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Touch has been found to entail positive effects in the person receiving it, whereas effects on the person giving touch have previously been unexplored. We investigated whether stroking the partner also is a pleasant experience for the person performing it, and whether it has similar effects on well-being and autonomic nervous function as being stroked or stroking oneself. Furthermore, we compared the hedonic and autonomic nervous effects of stroking the partner and self-stroking.

New research has found that excessive pornography viewing can cause serious psychosexual problems in men – most commonly erectile dysfunction.

Not surprisinly, I think the observed symptoms have more to do with orgasm than with "coitus," and I can't get the researcher quoted in the piece to consider that possibility.]

It seems men can find sex as unfulfilling as women but they’ve been keeping this guilty secret to themselves for years

The traditional version of sex is that the man has a good time no matter what, then turns over and begins to snore, oblivious of his partner.
