In brief: Old wives tales...

There is a great deal of misinformation out there about masturbation, often more closely tied to religious and social values than medical fact.
Masturbation is generally considered a normal part of teen sexual development, and can in fact have some health benefits. It has not been associated with premature aging, erectile dysfunction, or other male sexual or hormonal disorders or conditions.
