No: Whether or not a man goes bald is genetic and correlates with the amount of chest hair that he's naturally blessed with. Enjoying your body when you're by yourself won't make you short, bald, hairy, smooth, demented, insane, an unfit husband or father, infertile, pimply, or unspiritual. Think about the person you'll marry rather than trash.

Myths: The answer is no. Absolutely not. Masturbation is a common and healthy part of the human experience. All men you know masturbate or have masturbated. And nearly as many women as well. There are no negative health consequences to this sexual activity. Now that you know this truth please pass it on to your children. These myths are dangerous.
