Because it's true: It's the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. There is nothing special about masturbation. Children grown best when they have physical activities, eat well, and sleep adequately. Masturbation is just another activity, of which there are many in the lives of girls, boys, men, and women. No worries.

Myths abound: Myths are often created by cultures to enforce taboos. If you choose to believe the myths you heard from your friends and elders that consider masturbation a taboo, do so with my blessing. You never have to believe anything because it's true. It also won't make you blind, sterile, have worse acne and a collection of other things.
