Masturbating - is it okay?

Is it okay to masturbate? I've never tried it but my friends have talked about it. I'm 13 and male, if that matters

My personal advice is not to do it. Wait until you are a bit older and have natural sex with someone that you like.

No, why would you want someone to masturbate? Its best he stays away - it will eventually lead to pornography.

Why would it be a bad thing. There are scientific studies that masturbation is perfectly healthy. I believe in moderation, but there's no harm in exploring. Please don't make people feel bad about perfectly normal curiosity.

Hi I want to counteract the people saying to avoid it. It’s a natural human thing that many people venture into. In fact, men who don’t frequently masturbate are much more likely to get testicular cancer.

It may feel strange and weird like something that’s wrong and you shouldn’t do it, but it’s truly normal. Sex and masturbation entirely different also, so the ‘wait until you find someone to do it with rather than masturbate!’concept that a few have mentioned is completely irrelevant.

Also it only becomes addictive and ‘harmful’ if you believe that porn and real life sex are the same, because they aren’t. Porn is often staged to fit specific fantasies etc whereas in real life these fantasies may not be ideal to recreate or may even hurt or harm yourself and your partner. If you remember it’s made for entertainment and entertainment only you shouldn’t have a problem.

please don’t do it it’s not good and you can get really bad addictions and it will defo harm your mental health.
It's normal and has been practiced by humans throughout all of recorded history (and almost certainly in prehistory as well). Unless you have any specific personal or religious reasons not to want to, there's no particular reason not to do it. It's at worst a neutral activity.

I cannot see any problems with it, as long as it's being done with moderation.

Even daily is moderate, as long as you are not busy with it for hours and hours...
