In brief: Myth

In many cultures you will find a variety of myths that espose a list of horrible events that will affect anyone who masterbates.
This is more an attempt to shame people than reflect real information.Self sex is a normal part of human sexuality.It is known to peak in the early sexual years but may persist through a lifetime.Preoccupation to the point of disengaging in life is possible, but rare.
