Does too frequent masterbation cause erectile dysfunction? does it have negative impact on sexual activity?

It will lead to more effort and stimulation being required which is a negative impact on sex. Suggest you slowly reduce it to a frequency which satisfies you and is not excessive. Only you can be the judge of that. Too much of a good thing is not necessarily a good thing. You can do it
