Posted on Sat, 28 May 2016
Question: Hi Doctor,

This question is more on the educational or informative side than an actual health issue.
Is there a risk, for a potential future disease, if one practices masturbation every day? and would the risk increase if the erection ia kept for up to an hour? I read that the standard coitus should be around 15 minutes.

Thanks.
