A 24-year-old male asked:

Can masturbating daily, 3 times a day for 5 years or more cause health problems?

Nope: Unless masturbation interferes with your ability to live your life and function successfully in the world then feel free to continue. Masturbation is a normal part of life.

No: There is a wide range of normal libido, or sexual interest. As long as sexual activity does not interfere with other important aspects of your life, then how often you masturbate or have sex is up to you, and is not linked to health risks. You might want to invest in a good water-based lube, so you don't get a blister, though.

Don't rush things, and learn to control your climax. This will help you prevent premature ejaculation when you eventually do have a wife. I'm also glad you're thinking ahead. Best wishes.
