Brief Answer: No stretching of frenulum Detailed Answer: Hi. It is good to know that you have no sexual exposure till now. It is very common for the meatus to get swollen after masturbation. Penis is an organ which is erected due to engorgement of blood. A harsh act does cause this puffy swelling. It is good that it settles on its own , and do not need any attention. May be you need to adjust a bit avoiding friction over the glans and meatus. Frenulum is the the fold of skin on the under-surface connecting the glans and the skin. It can tear and has no direct relation with the meatus in a person with normal anatomy. So I do not think you have overstretched the frenulum. Use a good lubrication like Skin/hair oil or KY Jelly.

Brief Answer: Nothing to worry for the normal changes. Detailed Answer: Hi. As I already mentioned , penis is composed of a different system of engorgement. If you have no other symptoms and the subsides on its own, just relax. There is nothing to worry about. There is nothing you can/ should do about it.

Brief Answer: you can post actual photographs here Detailed Answer: Hi. I can understand your worry and being passionate about it. IF YOU STILL HAVE DOUBTS you can post actual photographs in both the positions (puffed up and not puffed up ) so that I can guide you more. If the puffiness goes away by evening and you have no other problems , no pain , no itching , no urinary problems - you may have to live with it. How many times do you observe this in 24 hours ?

Brief Answer: Seen the photos Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for sending the photos. I do not think this is something to worry about. This is just a reaction to harsh rubbing or so. As I told you This also is a part of penis which is engorged / distended as a normal process. This should settle with time. Do not be harsh during masturbation, use proper lubrication. This is NOT a disease. So relax.
