Yes. Masturbation: is only a problem when you do it too much (then it hurts or isn't pleasurable), or when you use it too much to not deal with other things, like bad moods, anxiety, etc. Masturbation is a personal thing, and so is the frequency. If it doesn't interfere with the rest of your life, enjoy.

Everyday: this is a personal and subjective condition. everyone is different. There is no health hazard to the quantity.

Commonplace: This is part of a persons life.Having sex, whether it be alone or with a partner is part of life. Few cultures are open about the subject, but it is the norm not the exception. The frequency is more common during early adolescence and diminishes as more outlets for sexuality are present.
