It depends: It depends on your age and desire. You can do 1-2 times per day.

You choose: Some men prefer a "hard" ejaculation and wait several days between sessions. Essentially everybody does it, and it's your business. If you are missing appointments, not finding time to do the things you want to do or should be doing, or are avoiding meeting people who might be that one special person for you, then think about resetting your priorities. Otherwise -- enjoy yourself.

Limited by society: There is no law and i've never written a prescription for this. It is possible to rub your penis raw, but it heals quickly. Religion often weighs in on this issue and you might want to check with your religious leaders or your parents. The department of labor requires several breaks during each work day. Your employer or school may have a specific policy.
