Masturbation: masturbation is completely normal and will not cause you any issues. Feel free to enjoy as you see appropriate. Good luck.

You're fine, man: No two guys enjoy their bodies in exactly the same way. If somebody tell you that being creative with this stuff will spoil you as a husband / father / spiritually / make you go bald or whatever, they're just trying to manipulate you. If Dad's a reasonable guy, talk with him about this; otherwise, feel free to talk with your physician or some other guy who's got it together. Cheers.
