I masturbate very often, maybe 4 or 5 times a day. Is that normal? A lot of people in my grade seem to think that sexual stuff like that is weird, but I love the feeling. Should I do anything differently?

Thanks for your question. Masturbation is a normal and a natural way to learn about your body and what feels sexually satisfying. Generally, frequent masturbation isn’t harmful; however, your genitals may become sore. If this happens, it’s a good idea to cut back on the number of times that you masturbate in a day. If you experience any pain during or after masturbating, it’s important to talk with your health care provider.
