Maybe. Maybe not.: Sexually active guys with any penis symptoms can get tested for some STD's. Normal masturbation does not cause urethral damage. Likewise, normal sexual intercourse does not cause damage. That means using good technique, and of course, as with all things in life, do everything in moderation. Even too much of a good thing can become a problem.
