You'll go blind, and your hand could get stuck.
I'm JUST KIDDING. From everything I've heard, not only is it not harmful but it is actually healthy and natural. If you want some official answers you should go to a website that talks medically about such issues....sexuality, growing up, etc.
Don't let people make you feel bad about your feelings!

    No! It is a myth that:
    a) your hand will fall off,
    b) your penis will fall off, or
    c) you will go blind.

    None of these will happen. Masterbating was long considered dangerous, but crossing a main street today is far more dangerous!

    All those people who are saying it's bad are liars. Masturbating is perfectly normal, and practically everyone I know masturbates.

    Not only is it not harmful but is is a healthy thing and anyone that tells you otherwise is an idiot.

    Why is it healthy?

    1. Well..first of all, it's a great stress reliever.
    2. It can't make you sick or a daddy before your time.
    3. You can begin to learn to control your orgasm, lasting longer and longer so you will be a better lover when the time comes.
    4. You may be better able to wait for sex.

    Our bodies crave sex just as we crave food, air and water. We are biological beings that were meant to reproduce.

    However uncontrolled sexual activity has tons of very ugly problems. Masturbation can relieve that need without putting any other aspect of your life or health at risk.

    So spank that monkey and do it often. Don't let it become an obsession but it is my understanding that most young males do it alot.

    And clean up after yourself. Your mamma doesn't want to find that mess!

    Nope, the fear of all those bad things happening to you are religious freaks who think that if people love themselves then they cant love god as much so they make up stories to scare kids into loving thier god. Its a load of bs. Masturbate its really healty for you because it cleans out the system. Nothing worse than months old sperm, mmm dead cells crowding in your balls. Yeah go jerk right now

    No, it is part of the growing up process. Some religions and cultures will cause believers and its members to feel guilt for the performance of this act, but it is a private matter!

    Only if you cause an irritation (similar to a rug burn). Otherwise no. Much better to do this than other things. If you can, see what your parent's views on this are on this subject. They may surprise you in a good way.

    No, not unless you do it a lot and your schlong starts to chaff or something. Don't worry about it being "morally wrong," as that doesn't really make any sense. Touching yourself affects nobody besides you, so do what you want.

    No, but if you feel like you do it too often, you may want to speak to a doctor.
