    Yes, it is healthy and normal as long as you are not doing it excessively. You will know you are doing it excessively if you experience discomfort, pain, cramp, redness, irritation, etc.

    Here is the truth. YOu do not need to stop masturbating. It is normal and okay and in fact it is healthy for you. It promotes good health of the prostate and the penis. It is good for you in that it relaxes you, releases stress, helps you to control your sexual anxiety , and it feels great. You should masturbate as often as you want or feel the need. There are no harmful side affects, no negative consequences. It is not wrong or a sin. So enjoy your manhood.

    Yes and do it often as you like. There are no health problems associated with it except for a chaffed penis from over doing it. Don't listen to all the lies people have told you and will tell you about masturbation. There is nothing wrong with it.

    Who Masturbates?

    Just about everybody. Masturbation is a very common behavior, even among people who have sexual relations with a partner. In one national study, 95% of males and 89% of females reported that they have masturbated. Masturbation is the first sexual act experienced by most males and females. In young children, masturbation is a normal part of the growing child's exploration of his or her body. Most people continue to masturbate in adulthood, and many do so throughout their lives.

    Why Do People Masturbate?

    In addition to feeling good, masturbation is a good way of relieving the sexual tension that can build up over time, especially for people without partners or whose partners are not willing or available for sex. Masturbation also is a safe sexual alternative for people who wish to avoid pregnancy and the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases. It also is necessary when a man must give a semen sample for infertility testing or for sperm donation. When sexual dysfunction is present in an adult, masturbation may be prescribed by a sex therapist to allow a person to experience an orgasm (often in women) or to delay its arrival (often in men).

    Is Masturbation Normal?

    While it once was regarded as a perversion and a sign of a mental problem, masturbation now is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity that is pleasant, fulfilling, acceptable and safe. It is a good way to experience sexual pleasure and can be done throughout life.

    Masturbation is only considered a problem when it inhibits sexual activity with a partner, is done in public, or causes significant distress to the person. It may cause distress if it is done compulsively and/or interferes with daily life and activities.

    Is Masturbation Harmful?

    In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. Some cultures and religions oppose the use of masturbation or even label it as sinful. This can lead to guilt or shame about the behavior.

    Some experts suggest that masturbation can actually improve sexual health and relationships. By exploring your own body through masturbation, you can determine what is erotically pleasing to you and can share this with your partner. Some partners use mutual masturbation to discover techniques for a more satisfying sexual relationship and to add to their mutual intimacy.

    Very much so. Whenever you enjoy sex and orgasm, your body releases endorphins which are very good chemicals.

    Yes, it is normal for all men and many women. It is a healthy way to release sexual tension. It is a preferred method to indiscriminate sex or perversions such as rape. There is nothing perverse or unnatural about self gratification. Unless it comes to a point in one's life where you can't get sexual satisfaction in a relationship.
