No: Masturbation is a normal animal activity. There are no health reasons to masturbate or not to masturbate. It doesn't make you more or less manly.
Dr. Heidi Fowler
Psychiatry 25 years experience
No: Masturbation does not cause a male to be any more or less masculine.

What are alternative ways to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation?

Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
The most obvious: The most obvious way to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation, is to have sex with a willing partner. Sometimes sexual desire can become compulsive though, relating more to obsessive anxiety than to genuine sexual desire. If you're wondering about your own situation, consulting with your family physician or a psychiatrist may help.
