Also, many women in porn were previously abused, & are working out their issues on screen instead of in therapy. A sad business. ...Read more

Not sure..: It's just never a good idea to smoke while pregnant. Ever. And because there is no positive effect, why take a chance? Think if you were the fetus. Would you want your mom to smoke while you were trying to grow and survive?

No: In general, this is a very safe activity after being in a monogamous relationship where both partners have been tested for sexually transmitted disease.

Can avoiding masturbation permanently,effect my body in any harmful way?if yes,how least often should i masturbate to remain in mental n phy. health?
Doesn't matter: It absolutely doesn't matter how often a person masturbates as long he or she is living a normal happy life... and the masturbation is not interfering with one's normal daily activities. If that is not the case, and a person is masturbating too little, or too much, and it's becoming one of life's stresses, then he can take a trip to the doctor's office to evaluate the whole picture (big picture). ...Read more
Masturbation: No. If you overdo it and get irritation locally, best to cut back a bit. As a young adult, a healthy libido is to be expected. My concern is that if you rely on self stimulation to the exclusion of social interaction with your peer group, you could isolate and miss opportunities for relationships. If you have an enjoyable social life then i see no problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Qualified NO: Masturbation is a normal sexual process. It starts in infancy and is carried out through the geriatric population. Only when it becomes a major part of one's daily activities and one is preoccupied with this activity and it interferes with social health and mental health and is a detriment to other relationships, is it a problem. The old saying "everything in moderation" stands. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Masturbation: Masturbation is neither good nor bad. It is normal and common and part of the human experience. There is no medical or health reason not to masturbate.

This shame is very damaging to the human experience. ...Read more

Neither good nor bad: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem).

It's good for you: Essentially all male and a majority of females enjoy their bodies while alone. It keeps you comfortable and able to focus on other things, and prepares you mentally and physically for adult roles. It won't make you sick, fat, short, hairy, smooth, infertile, or an unfit husband / father. Anyone who tells you otherwise is misinformed or worse. Think about real love rather than internet junk. ...Read more
Of course!: The short answer is yes, and really the chinese medicine philosophy of everything in moderation should be followed here. People often think that if a little is good, more is better.

Fact of life: This is an important part of life for all male and most female teens. It lets you learn about your body and mind in preparation for adult life.

Few folks develop obsession with erotica; we can rx this if needed. ...Read more
No: It will not make you short, hairy, smooth, stupid, bald, infertile, an unfit husband / parent, unspiritual, insensitive, or any of the other things you've been warned about.

Think about that one special person in your future rather than about internet trash. Best wishes. ...Read more
