Even on holidays...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It is not harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause acne or hair loss, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage vision.

Yes: And it's ok for guys, too. And several times a day if you have time. As long as this activity doesn't interfere w/school, work, activities, family, friends & personal relationships, etc.

Sure: If you're obsessed with erotica so that you're missing out on other things in life that you should / want to be doing, your doctor can help. It's usual for a young single man to enjoy his body daily; many young women do as well. Vary your technique to prepare yourself for different partners.

Indeed it is: This is around the norm for most young men, and many young women. You learn about your mind and body in preparation for adult roles, and stay comfortable and able to focus on other things.

Masturbation: At 17, your hormones are reaching a peak, and masturbation is a natural "release" of tension created thereby. Daily masturbation is not harmful.
