No, but...: Masturbation (regardless of whether it is male masturbation, female masturbation, self masturbation, or mutual masturbation) can have no effect on sexual dysfunction, can decrease dysfunction or can increase dysfunction. The effect depends on issues such as the person(s) views on masturbation and whether or not the masturbation increases the level and duration of sexual excitement for each person.
