Thanks for your query.
There is no consensus on the frequency of masturbation.
As long as it does not affect your activities of daily living, studies, job, interpersonal relationships etc --- whatever you do is fine.
There is a lot of myth revolving around this issue, that i can affect future erections, child bearing and so on. None of these is true.
You should not feel guilty about it and if so already - kindly remove it first from your mind.
Only worrying can cause anxiety and related problems with erection.
Once a day is fine. It is extremely unlikely to have any adverse impact on your body or on your sexual abilities in future.
All the best and wishing you good health.
