Male or female?: The medicated camphor in the petroleum of the Vicks is irritating to mucous membranes.

Stop and reflect that what you're doing is keeping you comfortable so you can do other things, and preparing you mentally and physically for being an adult. Think about someone you love / like rather than internet garbage. ...Read more

Is it bad to masturbate with vicks? And if I already did it what could happen other than the burning?
Yup, it's bad: The burning you know about. There also might be swelling and other inflammation effects. A one-time error that only burns will probably do minimal damage and fade into the past. The lesson to not do it may the the best result. It's a petroleum product - not for internal use of any kind. Use KY jelly or natural edible oily things. Read labels. If irritation persists - go to urgent care or dr. Best! ...Read more

You & everybody else: Ur almost a man, and what u do by yourself teaches u about ur mind & body in preparation for adult life & keeps u comfortable and focused.

What's right 4 you?: If you are a male from an ideological background that has told you that enjoying your body like essentially all teens do is wicked and must be resisted, you may undergo a painful, degrading struggle that you will lose.

If you're not obsessed with erotica ; missing the rest of life, this is fine. ...Read more
