Can a teen get prostate infection from lots of masturbation?

Can a teen get prostate infection from lots of masturbation?

No: Usually a guy never figures out how he got his prostatitis, but this just isn't possible. Some teens can damage themselves by squeezing at the last moment to prevent emission of sperms -- this is a cultural (i'd say superstitious) practice that's been written up in the medical journals; please don't do this, as this can cause pain and perhaps damage to the prostsate & vesicles. ...Read more

I've read from several articles that frequent masturbation can cause prostatic hyperemia and thus cause prostatitis. Is that real?

Reading is good: Reading is good, and makes a young person well-rounded and wiser about affairs of the world.

So, the effects from vaginal sex or masturbation appear identical to one's prostate. ...Read more
