    No, Jackin' off is good when you want to do it.  When I was 12, my dad told me that and and that all men do it. And he said that it's usually a private thing-we assume that others don't want to see us do it.

    Definitely. It’s considered normal for boys and girls around the time they hit puberty, as there are a lot of hormones racing around the body. As you masturbate though, make sure you’re not overdoing it, make sure you’re well hydrated with lube, and also always have safe sex to keep you in good health. Would also recommend a penis health crème if you’re trying to impress the ladies with a smooth and supple -penis.

    Yes, it's perfectly OK to masturbate, as well as being perfectly normal, perfectly common, and perfectly healthy.  The only testosterone that's lost by masturbation is the tiny amount that's in the contents of the semen that's ejaculated.  When it was sitting in storage it wasn't doing anything for the body anyway, and it gets regenerated as fast as the next wad of spooge is built up.  So jerk away.

    No. It does not lower your testosterone.

    Masturbation is beneficial because it provides for the need to ejaculate semen.

    Masturbation is fun, pleasant, enjoyable, safe, healthy, normal, harmless, contributes to prostate health, relieves sexual tension, and pain from overfilled seminal vesicles. Frequent masturbation prevents wet dreams, and the painful condition known as “blue balls”.  Masturbation leaves one with a feeling of relaxation, contentment, and well-being.  Masturbation aids sleep when done before bedtime.One cannot get an STD from masturbation.Masturbation is not mentioned in the Bible, so there is no reason to believe that it is sinful or immoral.Masturbation is considered harmless, but circumcised guys may get friction irritation if they don’t use lubrication.Masturbation should be done in a place where one has privacy.   Failure to do so, may cause acute embarrassment.http://www.steadyhealth.com/medical-answers/keepin... the window shades or blinds.  If you have a door to lock, then lock it.  Do it quietly so no one hears it.

     Favorite places are on the toilet, in the shower, or in bed at night.

    If you do it in bed, then keep the covers over you in case someone walks in. Keep your foreskin over the head so that it does not rub on the blanket.  If you masturbate in bed, then an old sock is useful for catching the ejaculate. There is no lower or upper age limit for masturbation. Some pre-school boys masturbate and some elderly people masturbate at least into their late seventies.One may masturbate as much or as little as one wishes, however one may experience temporary sexual exhaustion due to very frequent masturbation.Three times a day works well for many teens.1. Do it before school in the morning. This helps you get through the school day without being excessively h*rny.2. Do it after school because you have gone a whole day without masturbating.3. Do it before going to sleep. This helps with restful, sound sleep.The movable, internally-lubricated, nerve-laden erogenous foreskin and its gliding action is an important aid to masturbation.Circumcision was introduced in Victorian times to unforeskin the penis, tighten the skin to make it movable, and make it impossible to masturbate. It failed to stop masturbation but it made it harder to do and less enjoyable.  Guys found that they could still do it if they used lubrication.How one does it depends on whether one has an internally lubricated movable foreskin that glides up and down the shaft or whether you have been unforeskinned.If you are foreskinned, then all you need to do is glide your foreskin back and forth. It is not necessary to retract the foreskin. The outer foreskin glides over the inner foreskin. The foreskin is internally lubricated with lymphatic fluid and glides without friction. The numerous nerves inside the foreskin are stimulated by the motion and generate pleasurable sensations. Foreskinned males must be careful not to tear the frenulum.  It is not necessary  or recommended to retract the foreskin to masturbate.   Most guys prefer to keep the foreskin forward over the head.Long and vigorous masturbation can cause the foreskin to become edematous and swollen, which is painless and not a cause for alarm. The edema usually goes down within about 24 hours. Pulling back too hard is apt to stretch the frenulum and may tear it.It is common for an unforeskinned male, who has been deprived of his internally lubricated foreskin, to have friction irritation if he does not apply external lubricant.If you are unforeskinned and the skin is taut and immovable, then you will probably need some lubrication and you need to slide your hand up and down the shaft. You will likely injure yourself without lubricant. Friction irritation is common when a male without foreskin masturbates without lubricant. Some lubricants are baby oil, vegetable oil, personal lubricant, soapy water, and saliva.After a male ejaculates, there is normally a “refractory period” before he can have sex again.  During the refractory period, the penis becomes hypersensitive and one cannot continue sexual activity.

    Your testosterone levels increase slightly during arousal, returning back to normal afterwards pretty quickly.

    If anything it increases it.  Use it or lose it.  There are so many myths made up about it order to stop people masturbating for religious reasons when it is not at all harmful and within reason it is even beneficial.
