Q & A: "Is masturbating good for you? "

Q. Is masturbating good for you?

A. For many people masturbation is an enjoyable way of
playing out sexual fantasies, releasing sexual tension,
and becoming more comfortable with their own sexuality. For some
people, masturbation is a part of the enjoyment of sex when
shared with their partner(s). For others, it may help curb
impulses to have sex with someone that might later be regretted.

These aspects of masturbation may be good for your health
psychologically and emotionally (and certainly it is healthy to
be free of guilt or fear just because you masturbate). But there
are otherwise no physical benefits to your health from
masturbation.
