Safe: Masturbation is safe. The main negative consequence is that you could get a rash or irritation from rubbing up against the sheets. It could be problematic if masturbation interferes with your life otherwise - you stop socializing or stop wanting to be around other people, for instance. That's pretty unusual however.
