Not harmful: Masturbation does not cause injury unless performed extremely vigorously. If you find yourself injured after masturbation (and that was not your intention), then explore methods which are less aggressive or try using lubricants. Men can masturbate multiple times a day without injury. But don't ignore work or healthy interpersonal relationships!
