Masturbation: Masturbation is perfectly normal but do not do it so much as to exclude relationships.

Potentially: If masturbation is excessive to the point where you ignore the people who are important to you, fail to address work or school responsibilities or allow it to become the dominant issue in your life - that would be problematic.
