Question: Masturbation delaying penis growth?
|Confused16 - Sat Jan 20, 2007 10:45 am||
I know that penis size is usually genetically determined, but is it possible that the growth is delayed by masturbation?
|Dr. Chan Lowe - Sat Jan 20, 2007 11:33 am||
Penis growth is related to the presence of testosterone in the body. This is essentially genetically controlled and primarily occurs during puberty. Masturbation does not affect penis size.
