Is it possible to masturbate too much?

ANSWER

How often you masturbate is up to you.

When masturbation starts to take over your life, then it could be a problem. If you'd rather hang out at home alone and masturbate than be with your friends, then you may want to talk to a therapist or psychologist for help. If you don't know how to do this, ask your doctor, parent, or a counselor at school to help you set up an appointment.
