Define long periods: Not sure how to answer this... Depending on how "long" these "sessions" last, maybe you should stop them so you can go about a normal life. Seriously, if you are saying you get heart symptoms with masterbating, perhaps you should consult a cardiologist first. Males your age should not have any symptomatic problems while "loping the mule". Get your heart checked out, but otherwise should be ok.

You're a man!: Hey buddy! You're 20 years old. I'm glad you're enjoying your body like all the other guys. This physiologic response is fine. I hope you get just as excited when romance comes into your life. If you're taking too much time focused on erotica, and it's compulsive, we can help. Otherwise, enjoy being young. Maybe you could even talk with Dad about your changing body.
