In brief: Your choice

If this is what you want, it's fine.
Plenty of adults don't care about sex or think it's not worth the trouble, despite what pop culture keeps telling us. Almost all men do feel the need to relieve pressure / get enjoyment by masturbating, and there's evidence (though controlled studies are impossible) that to try to resist doing this is bad not only for your mood but for your prostate.
