It's a good thing: If you are obsessed with erotica and this is interfering with what you realistically know you must do or should be doing (work, relationships with real people), get with your physician now; it's treatable. Otherwise, it lets you learn about your body & mind to prepare you to be an adult, keeps you comfortable and focused. Think about the girl you'll marry, and good luck.

Does daily masturbation have any effect on your health?

Not harmful: Anyone in this day and age who tells you that this causes illness is either a fool or trying to manipulate you through fear. You learn about yourself and your body, you can keep the pressures under control, and you can even think about the person you will marry. I'm glad you asked what may have been a hard question; talk with some folks, perhaps even mom / dad for more good advice if you can.

Not Necessarily : I am not aware of any studies confirming any benefit ... I certainly haven't seen any prescriptions for this regimen. =).
