Masturbation Normal: Nope. Masturbation is a common part of the human experience. All men you know masturbate or have masturbated, some even more frequently than you. There is no medical or health reason not to masturbate and there is no disease that can come from simple masturbation.

No: The world would be a far more sickly place if that were true. Growing up is difficult enough without people peddling unfounded fears. Learn about your body, perhaps think about the person you will marry, and use this to become an adult. And talk to someone sensible -- doctor, pastor, coach, even (!) a parent.
