Masturbation/growth: By natural self-stimulation by masturbation, that is a form of self-pleasure. It does not stunt growth or cause any hormonal permanent changes, though in the moment might increase heart rate and hormones during this act. It is safe as long as no redness or irritation occurs from the frequency of it.
