Healthy Masturbation: No. I do not see any medical or scientific reason for the trainer's recommendation. Masturbation is a normal human experience. Plain and simple frequent and regular masturbation is not only normal it can be a sign of good physical and mental health. We do know that those gentlemen who ejaculate on a frequent basis have less prostate cancer. One is never too old to have a healthy sexuality.

Sounds like a pretty intense trainer. I agree with Dr Killian.

Maybe find another trainer that's not so interested in what you do with your penis!
