There has been a lot of debate recently about vaccinations and their potential side effects. This climaxed in a storm in the German language press in the last few days focusing on the link between vaccinations and increased masturbation in children. Here is a review of some aspects of this important issue.
Readers of my personal site at ChisDuggleby.com will be well aware that one of my hobbies is to scan the German language press to find interesting news articles which may not have received much attention in the English media. Sometimes these reports can be amusing (for more examples check out my Alpine Press Reports or my personal Blog).
As I am currently working in my music studio in South Africa with the Pretty Spandex Boys one article in the Austrian Press particularly caught my attention. It was first carried on 17th February 2017 by the portal oe24.at under the title: “Heilpraktikerin warnt: Geimpfte Kinder fangen an zu masturbieren“. For those who struggled with German at school here’s my rough translation “Natural Health Professional warns: vaccinated children start to masturbate“.
The original article has been removed – presumably following official complaints to the Austrian press regulatory body. You can however still see the title page in the Austrian newspaper Kurier.at using the link here.
The original article quoted a Swiss Natural Medicine practitioner who, it claimed, had warned parents against vaccinating their children. Apparently this natural medicine practitioner had noticed that following vaccinations children had started to masturbate and later had to cope with serious side effects like dyslexia, sleep problems, stuttering and even brain tumours.

According to other press reports the article on oe24.at did not attempt to give a balanced analysis of views for and against this viewpoint – this is presumably what led to the complaints and the article being withdrawn from public circulation. Oe24.at is well known in the German speaking world as a Boulevard or gossip/tabloid portal however many other publications felt that with this article it had reached a new low point in its professional integrity.
After doing a little more research in the German language media I discovered that the 54 year old Natural Medicine practitioner was qualified from the Homeopathy school in the Swiss town of Zug. She had shared her views with the local Toggenburger Newspaper. Roughly translated, these were: “Today I would prevent my children from having vaccinations. This is because, if nothing else, after vaccinations children can suddenly start to masturbate”.
Here’s another Pretty Spandex Boys video – they have all been vaccinated (also available from iTunes using the link here)
This situation she believes is an indication of the “vaccination illness”. She acknowledged that there can be other causes of excessive masturbation which should be included in future research. If you want to check out a German review in Huff Post you can find a report here. The Huff article also presented the opposite view, for example, by referring to the 120,000 deaths each year from Measles which could be prevented by vaccination.
The German Sueddeutsche Zeitung (SDZ) tried to also present a more balanced review with a touch of Bavarian humour. The German press do enjoy taking the Michael out of their smaller neighbours in Austria and Switzerland. The SDZ explained that as well as masturbation there were a number of other childhood phenomena that might ‘theoretically’ also be linked to vaccinations – like:
- the wearing of trousers or T-shirts that are too wide/too tight/too short or too long
- the following of YouTubers
- listening to pop music with too much/too little bass/beat/melody/guitars/keyboards/sense/meaning
- using Headphones with the trade mark ‘Beats’
They suggest that such traits in children should be added to masturbation in any serious study into the side-effects of vaccination.
As well as the Pretty Spandex Boys – on Sundays I work with the local choir (also available from iTunes using the link here)
To maintain balance the SDZ pointed out that the relationship between vaccination and masturbation had not been convincingly disproved. They reported that following a review of literature they felt they could safely claim that vaccinations in general led to children being more healthy. Healthy children are more likely to enjoy the kind of things that content kids do like, they suggest, masturbate. Their logic was that a child in bed suffering with measles was unlikely to be interested in masturbating whereas a child without measles would be in a better mood and therefore more inclined to have fun. So theoretically the vaccination could be held (indirectly) responsible for the child having more time to enjoy such ‘fun’ activities (the SDZ article ‘The truth about the relationship between vaccination and masturbation‘ in German is here).
If you have had a vaccination the following may be a little gentler on the body…
