User avatar Hello,Masturbation is safe sex and is a good way to keep off from other less safe practices like multiple sex partners,and not taking necessary precautions like condoms etc.
There is no evidence to show that masturbation cause any problems sexual or non sexual.
The only problem that causes problem is the guilt complex and the resultant performance anxiety.
You need not worry about fertility since despite population explosion today , most fertile of these would have masturbated at some point.
Best wishes.
