I am a 17 y/o male and sometimes masturbate for a long time ( few hours) without ejaculating, is this bad? Does it have any side effects?

In brief: Masturbation

One usually does not go to the doctor to learn proper sexual technique.
But, in this situation the only thing that medicine might comment on would be if you had pain, changes in the shape of your erection, abrasions or other skin damage. Otherwise medicine would, appropriately, be silent on your sexual choices.
