In brief: 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. All men you know masturbate or have masturbated. It is a normal part of a sexual life. What can be bad for health is shame instilled in our youth that touching themselves is some how evil. This shame is very damaging to the human experience.
