Some handy facts...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause hair loss or gray hair, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage eyes.

No significance: No matter what your #s, there are others who are "more active" than you, and they are not fragile-boned, endocrine messes. Our bodies can adapt to many "stresses, " even if used for stress relief.

No real effect: The only danger is to you as a person, and it is the obsession with erotica rather than the self entertainment. If you are looking at lorn instead of studying, working, or socializing, tell your physician. It is a dead end and we can free you.
