Masturbation doesn't: cause baldness. See a dermatologist for other reasons for early hair loss.

Dr. Saurbourn is correct. If masturbation caused baldness then virtually every teenage boy would be bald.

No: Masturbating will not cause you any harm. It does not cause hair loss, acne, dementia or any other disease.
