Says who?: The large majority of young men who are not in regular relationships enjoy themselves about as often as you do. And if you are a young man in decent health, you'll become aroused sexually many times a day by what you see and what you think. Life's hard enough without making this a problem. Think about the person you'll marry, or something else wholesome.

Masturbation: Masturbation, which all men and boys of a certain age and older do or have done, is a common part of the human experience. There are no negative health consequences to this frequent sexual activity. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not acting out of health concern for you or your body. There is no medical reason to stop masturbating.
