Too Much Good Thing?: You might want to take a look what the "Go Ask Alice" online Q&A service run by Columbia U's School of Public Health: http://bit.Ly/17krv3h. "Alice" suggests questions to ask yourself about your patterns of masturbation, your attitudes about it, etc. She points out that different people have very different masturbation habits. There is a wide range of experience. At 21, your experience is common!
