Define Ur parameter: Virginity is a term that has different meanings to different people. Some consider a tight hymen, the thin ring of tissue at the vaginal entrance, as a sign of virginity.However, that tissue may be loose or fully open naturally without any past sexual activity. Some consider any sexual act involving genital contact as "losing it".It just depends on what the term means to you.

Maybe: Both are natural. So long as the your partner is healthy, then sex can be good for your mental health as well as your physical health. Masturbation can relieve stress. Assuming you are not masturbating to the point where it interferes with your other life activities, it is ok for you to do so.

It : It is unlikely that your masturbation is causing you to reach orgasm more quickly than you would otherwise. One thing you might try to improve your endurance is to reduce your sensitivity by wearing a condom. It might also be helpful to spend more time on foreplay. There are physicians who specialize in sexual therapy who might provide additional information.

What happens?: Get with your physician. Post-coital / post-orgasmic headache can be a very serious problem; Propranolol may help but your physician is the one to see. There are other syndromes as well, such as severe sneezing, that can be managed.

This is ED: What you describe is exactly what ed is - the inability to achieve or maintain an erection. It doesn't have to happen every time. It is common in younger men to experience ed with intercourse but not masturbation at first for reasons not completely understood. Medications (like viagra, (sildenafil) etc...) can help, and in younger men are only needed for a short time. See your doctor for an assessment.
