Maybe: Hi Sarah, Generally, masturbation is healthy/normal. Have you discussed your concerns with him? Is he under a lot of stress? Are there religious/cultural concerns? It would be concerning if he consistently looks forward more to masturbating/watching porn than connecting with you, it interferes with his work, it becomes a primary coping strategy, and/or he has difficulty controlling the behavior.

Also recommend that the two of you together, or with the help of a therapist, discuss your views on masturbation and pornography, and come to an agreement that you both feel comfortable with. Hope this is helpful. Take care.
