    Absolutely not. Think about it. Every guy masturbates. If masturbation stunted growth then every man would be only three feet tall!

    It won't cause any other problems either as long as you don't do it so much that your penis becomes sore. It will not cause you to go bald. It will not damage the veins in your penis. It will not cause you to go blind. All those claims and more are said by control freaks who just want to invade your privacy and make you feel guilty about something that is absolutely normal.

    Not only is masturbation normal it is GOOD for you. It releases sexual tension. And it also helps you to learn about your penis and what feels good so that when you have a partner you can share that information and have a better sex life.

    Enjoy your penis. God made it. There is nothing wrong with enjoying it as long as you don't make it sore.

    masturbation is such an icky word. it is an urge you will need to fight all you life. if done frequently, it causes all sorts of problems. it affects hormones and does indeed make your hair thin and fall out. they have done no research to determine if the mechanical action of pounding away with such a delicate organ can damage the veins and capillaries such it shrinks. many suspect that it does. it needs to be overcome with other activities. try running or cycling.

    Source(s): george k. holmes, a former porn star, who is now totally bald and has damaged his penis which will not erect with viagra or anything. he blames it for his heart problems, too.

    No, but Viagra will certainly increase your growth! Keep masturbating to keep it in check or learn about condoms to keep from having unwanted pregnancy.

    No. It doesn't stunt growth. It also does not make you go blind. these are old wives tales to make you afraid to do it.

    No, that's just a load of crap that people come up with to try to discourage people from masturbating.

    I'm 6' 3".

    I can tell you from daily experience that it does not.

    I would reckon that it is good for you if anything!

    Like working out in the gym...

    I know that it's not true but now for the next day or so I won't be able to look at short men with a straight face. Thanks, Yahoo! answers, for making me that much more socially awkward.
