People have this idea that masturbating is bad, and masturbating too often is especially bad. This is not the case. Whether you choose to masturbate once a month, once a day, or 5 times a day, it's all the same. The problem is we have created so much shame around pleasuring ourselves that people feel guilty for doing it when it's actually a very healthy thing to do! It helps you relieve stress, and most importantly, it gives you an opportunity to explore yourself and get to know your body, which is important in maintaining a healthy sex life.
