Is masturbation normal?


I know a lot of people don't admit they do it, but I suspect they do secretly. How normal is masturbation? Can it cause any problems?

There are a couple of good websites that explain this issue.

The best one I can find at the moment is:
[link url=http://advancedmasturbation.com/]Male and Female Masturbation[/link]

http://advancedmasturbation.com/male/

and also:

http://advancedmasturbation.com/female/

But to answer your question in short sentence: Yes. It is "normal" if you define the word "normal" to mean the "majority" of people. It is true that most people do it, including boys and girls. About 50% of people masturbate for the first time before puberty, while the other 50% begin masturbating during the onset of puberty. Adults also masturbate. This includes men and women who are older, married people, people who have children, and even lots of people who are "mature"; that is: They are older (retirement age).

It is true that boys and men masturbate more often than women, and men also admit to masturbating more often than women. However, the majority of girls and women do it too.

Most doctors and scientists agree that masturbation causes absolutely no harm to the human body. This is in stark contrast to the past when doctors were either brainwashed or coerced by the church to tell people that masturbation caused all sorts of debilitating disorders. For the most part, even religious organizations have stopped teaching that masturbation causes any physical problems. Strict anti-masturbation religions, such as Mormonism, now refer to psychological or spiritual harm instead of any type of physical harm.

Today, enlightened doctors and psychologists agree that masturbation is both normal and healthy. Studies show that 95 percent of all males have masturbated and 89 percent of all females have done so. The only time masturbation is not okay is when it causes a disruption in regular life or sexual relations with a spouse. This is usually only the case in excessive masturbation or the desire to masturbate in public.

Masturbation is a healthy way of relieving sexual tension and other forms of stress. Masturbation can relieve sexual pressures or feelings in a safe way. When masturbating, a person doesn’t have to worry about unwanted pregnancy or sexually transmitted disease.

Occasional masturbation is so healthy and beneficial that it has actually been prescribed by some doctors. Masturbation can be an important therapy in sexual dysfunction. It can also alleviate the symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome in women. Masturbation has been used as a treatment for insomnia. Additionally, masturbation has been shown to strengthen the muscles in the genital region. Lastly, increased frequency of ejaculation in males is associated with lower rates of prostate cancer.
