Excessive masturbation is excess exercise and therefore it is stressful. That is all. Reduce the sexual masturbation to thrice a week.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have read multiple articles and websites about masturbation seeking an answer regarding whether or not it is harmful, and if so in what ways. Unfortunately, some said it s harmless some harmful and listed several things such as hair loss, weakened eye site etc...I would like to know from a medical and professional point of view, which is it? Is masturbation harmful? If so how? What is a good masturbation frequency? I am 22 years old, never been sexually active yet, I weight 155 lbs and I am 5 9 .
