It doesn't: Being a teen is difficult enough without somebody trying to frighten you by telling you the enjoying your body will stunt your growth. Find a few reasonable grown men -- maybe even dad -- and talk with them about your changing mind and body.

No: This just isn't true. Whoever told you this is either very ignorant or is trying to deceive you for their own dark purposes. Being a teen is difficult enough without superstition like this. Talk with your personal physician about your changing body -- or (if they're reasonable) maybe even dad. Best wishes.

No: Masturbation is a normal animal activity. There are no health reasons to masturbate or not to masturbate. It doesn't make you more or less manly.
