I was wondering is excessive masturbation bad for your health?

What's excessive?: It becomes a problem if, and only if, you're so focused on enjoying your body and on human sexuality that you're missing out on other things in life that you should be doing -- being with people, learning, working.

I'm sorry there are people like this. Enjoy yourself and when it comes time for love, be responsible. ...Read more

In general...: One can find other things to do with his time. In a normal person, there is no problem with masturbating. However, in a person with excessive guilt, the person has a problem with guilt, not with masturbation. There are so many things to do in life to help one's family, community, and the world around us. So, one can either stop the guilt, or replace the masturbation by doing other activities. ...Read more

Hi I like to know masturbation is bad or good for health and body or growing or eny thing else thanks?

Prob. Beneficial if:: Masturbation is normal behavior done by almost everyone. It can help relieve stress. There is strong evidence it significantly reduces risk of prostate cancer in men.
