Too much of anything: Too much of anything can be bad. If you ejaculate 2 or 3 times a day there will be less sperm in each then if you do it 2 or 3 times a week, but that is temporary; as soon as you reduce frequency your sperm count will rise. Masturbation can be a healthy release but can be detrimental if done compulsively or enough to cause irritation. If so, consider other outlets like meditation and exercise.

Masturbation to "release or relieve" so-called Blue Ball Syndrome is not essential for life, but more mental thing resulting from obsession and overindulgence which are the commonest chronic killers of life yet least mentioned so to serve the high demand of political correctness - not invading privacy.
