    I guess it depends on the person. Depression actually lowers sex drive for some people.

    Too much masturbation depresses both sexes for sure. Brings on a sense of being alone.

    Physiologically?  No, that's just internet BS.  Psychologically?  Well, that depends.  If you put your feelings of self-worth and achievement disproportionally into sex it certainly can. It's not a healthy thing to do at all, though I appreciate that it's harder to get out of that mindset than just deciding on an instant to think differently when your peers may be pushing sex as the only "real" measure of success.  It says a lot about the paucity of their lives, opportunities and ambitions.  You may have trouble changing your way of thinking because it would mean having to look more deeply at the problems in your life which is terrifying.  If you feel like the lack of sex is causing you to be depressed make finding more things to put your self-esteem into your long term project and you'll probably find that that will also help with the sex thing as a side effect.

    I wouldn't say clinical depression but lack of being intimate with anyone can make you feel depressed because you can get frustrated at not being able to have sex, especially for those with high sex drives and in their prime. That can really lead to negative affects on your mood.

    It can if that's your main intentions. There are other things that can make one depressed.

    It sure doesn't make ME happy but I doubt that it can result in clinical depression.
