How often is normal for a male around the age of 35 to be masterbating per week? Is there a medical amount of time specified before a man [b]needs[/b] to release himself before too much builds up?

I noticed that over 4000 people viewed this thread, but only 3 responded. Sex sells, I guess.
Anyway, I'm not a doctor, but my guess is masterbation is like sex drive. Some people do it more than others because they have a higher sex drive. Also, some people can use it to relieve stress or for other reasons. My opinion is, if it doesn't interfere with your regular life, don't worry about it.
