Published: September 30, 2014
Dear TeenhealthFX,

Hello...i am girl,19 years old....i have a boyfriend and we are committed since past 5 years...but since i am catholic and he is well aaa different...we have maintained a "no touching" policy till now . Currently i am doing M.B.B.S from D.Y Patil college..and he is in NIT agartalla . Since we are getting too "turned on" due to our imposed restrictions and all....he educated me about "masturbation" about a month ago...and last day ...insisted..that i try it in order to prevent being " desperate " . So i masturbated for the first time last day...and i have urges to do it again ever since..i become wet again and again while chatting with him since yesterday because "masturbation" is the most intimate topic we ever discussed...Doctor i just want to know...what should be my limit ? and about the harmful effects of masturbation...please help me .


Dear Limit On Masturbation,

TeenHealthFX realizes that your religion seems to play a significant role in your life. We are mindful that different religions and cultures share many different beliefs when it comes to masturbation.

 

From a medical standpoint we can say that masturbation and pleasing oneself is completely normal for all people. There are many false myths that masturbation can cause health problems but these claims don't hold up under scientific investigation. As long as it is not interfering with your life and it is done in private, masturbation is a healthy expression of one's sexuality.

 

Given that information it is important that you come to an understanding that incorporates your belief system which incorporates your thoughts along with religious guidelines.
