In brief: Certainly excessive

Sperm production is steady & constant under normal circumstances.
Thus sperm count per ejaculation is less when ejaculating frequently. Will not affect your sperm count if when U get married & wish 2B a father. Sperm count, at that time, can be maximized by ejaculating/having sex once every 3 days. Otherwise, if not trying for pregnancy, have sex as often as U & Ur partner wish.

In brief: Father's Day

Of course. Plenty of guys enjoy their bodies several times a day.
Your sperm count may be a bit lower because you re absorb less fluid between episodes. One of the cults tells teens this will make them sterile but it is hogwash. If you are obsessed with erotica and missing it on life otherwise, your physician can help. Otherwise, enjoy being young.

In brief: Sperm count

Masturbation really only has a short term effect on sperm count.
It lowers your count for a day or so. Certainly once you are ready to have a baby you may want to avoid masturbation for a day or so before.

In brief: No danger

Infertility cannot be caused by masturbation.
Frequent masturbation may reduce the quantity or quality of semen in the short run but will not reduce your ability to get a woman pregnant.
