No: If it were wrong, we're living in a wicked world. Only a fool or a fearmonger would tell you this. Learning about your body and keeping the pressure at bay is part of the process of becoming and being an effective adult. Partner expectations that you will not touch yourself are unrealistic; handle this how it seems best or say you think of the other person. I admire your courage in asking.
