Masturbation: Masturbation is a normal and common part of human sexuality. Nothing in your story worries me from a medical perspective. Every man or boy your age or older masturbates or has masturbated. Some do it even more frequently than you. There is no health reason to limit your sexual activity.

Not a problem: Ed is a mainly a function of anxiety or chronic medical conditions causing nerve function problems. It is normal for adolescents to masturbate.
