Question: Is it OK not to Masturbate?


 quetionous - Sat Jan 24, 2009 12:17 am

I am 25 year old male and have been masturbating daily for years. I am wondering if it is OK for me to stop masturbating (have my own reasons why I would like to stop)? Is there any medical problem I could experience if I stop masturbating completely?

Thanks

To quetionous,

Should be fine whether you masterbate or not. You might notice an increase in nocturnal or nightime erections and wet dreams, also normal. Good luck.
