Masturbation is healthy and doesn’t cause any serious health problems nor does it have any long term effects. It’s completely normal to masturbate and it’s a natural way to learn about your body and find out what feels sexually satisfying. Most people agree that masturbation should be done in private though. However, if you find that it’s all that you think about or it interferes with doing other things such as getting to school on time, or your genitals become red, sore and/or irritated, you should talk to your health care provider or a counselor. Just in case you were wondering, masturbation does NOT cause blindness, stunt your growth, or cause disease or infertility. These are just myths.
