Brief Answer:
Not at all.

Detailed Answer:
Very interesting question.

There are no side effects of daily masturbation. You are doing this only for 10 years and you started doing this at the age of full maturity- 19 years.

This should not at all affect your upcoming sexual life. The only difference then would be to have vaginal intercourse , rest of the things remain the same. So why should you be bothered. Masturbation id a very personal part of life where you alone are involved to relieve yourself plus have a sexual pleasure. In intercourse only a partner is added. and if your partner is understanding cooperative you may have better sexual life.
