Brief Answer:
Mastrubation is not harmful

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns about Mastrubation and testesterone.

I am happy to know that you are trying to get physically fit and build your body. But unfortunately you are having some misconceptions and let me clarify them.

1. Mastrubation is not harmful. Either for future sex life or further body building.

2. Mastrubation is a natural way to fulfill sexual desires and it is not associated with any effect on body.

3. Steroids should not be taken and please avoid them as they have many side effects.

4. Continue working out at gym without steroids and have mastrubation as you like.

5. Let me reassure you that mastrubation is completely normal and healthy. Your gym instructor is wrong.

6. You dont nees any tests.
