You might have heard some things about masturbation, such as that it causes you to go blind, or for hair to become infertile. These are all myths – masturbation won’t cause any of these things. In fact, masturbation has no effect on body growth at all.
Masturbation isn’t “bad ” – regardless of whether you’re doing it during the week or on the weekend. The only time that masturbation may be considered harmful is if you’re irritating your genitals or if you’re experiencing pain. If masturbating is all you can think about, or it gets in the way of your daily activities, you might be spending too much time doing it.
