Masturbation

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are concerned that masturbation or too much masturbation is bad for your health. the short answer is no. There are no disease associated with masturbation. The biggest thing we are concerned about with masturbation is the mental aspect. With masturbation we live in a fantasy world and really don't get out and be with other people and having normal couples sex life. This goes into the pornography issue and the toll the world is costing with pornography. The degradation of women and exploitation of vulnerable people. So the short answer no medical risks with masturbation but psychological and social issues with masturbation.
