A 19-year-old male asked:

masturbation has less sensation, due to less penis sensitivity maybe??

Penile Trauma: If one masturbates so frequently and without lubrication then there could be damage to the skin and the nerves of the penis. We cannot see or examine your penis and do not know your sexual practices. But, if you are causing damage to the skin by having too much abrasive friction without lubrication you may be damaging your penis.

A 18-year-old member asked:

Is bed masturbation safe. The one in which people lie down on the bed and rub their penis against it ! what could be the negative consequences ?

Safe: Masturbation is safe. The main negative consequence is that you could get a rash or irritation from rubbing up against the sheets. It could be problematic if masturbation interferes with your life otherwise - you stop socializing or stop wanting to be around other people, for instance. That's pretty unusual however.

No effect: The penis will be the size it is. It will not grow beyond full adulthood. Masturbaton will have no effects on increasing or decreasing the size of the penis. Don't worry, be happy!

Possibly: Curvature of the penis comes from repeated damage to the tubes in the penis that fill. With blood to produce an erection. Squeezing too hard and bending instead of rubbing the penis can cause permanent curving, .

Does a lot of masturbation increase the penis hole diameter?

No: Some men have a wider diameter to the meatus when erect because of the way the corpus spongiosum is configured. That's distinctive for the guy, just as nose shape and size.

No: Life and growing up are difficult enough without people trying to upset you with foolish ideas like this one. Dad might be a good guy to talk to right now. Best wishes.
