Brief Answer:
It purely depends on your health

Detailed Answer:
Dear Willis. Thanks for the question.

First of all, you should understand that masturbation is not a necessity for any human being. Having said that it is also not in any way harmful to human health if you can make it healthy.

If a young person marries, he does go for sex with her wife twice or thrice a day in the beginning and then once per day for many months altogether. Here the person's and partners health count how many times sex can be done. Masturbation is also same. If you can, if you are healthy enough, you can go for it daily.

Here you can clearly see that masturbation can be directly proportional to your health.

At the same time, it is also clear that masturbation or sex consumes energy. But the energy can be regained easily.

So according to your health and age, you can masturbate thrice or four times a week in adult ages and if you are middle age, twice or once a week.

Now you should determine whether you are addicted to masturbation or not. If you are doing it daily or once in two days repeatedly, you are addicted. That does not mean that it is harmful to health (if you are healthy) and you need to stop it. Masturbation addiction is behavior addiction and if you are healthy enough do not worry about it at all and go on and enjoy.

Take care
