Masturbating right or wrong
Posted on: 03/14/2005
I just wanted to know if it is healthy for a girl or anyone to masturbate every other night? My friend had told me that she does it every night and I was just wondering if it is normal and healthy. She said that there are some nights she can't sleep and if she masturbates it'll put her to sleep and it'll make her tired and it feels good at the same time. She also said she feels more pleasure when she masturbates than doing it with a guy. So I would like to know more on that part -- if she is right or wrong.
There is no right or wrong to masturbation. It may help her relax and there is no physical harm. The only problem would be if the focus on masturbation keeps someone from working, going to school or having relationships with other people.
