Masturbating

Masturbation is a self-stimulating sexual practice involving touching and massaging the genitals to promote intimacy, explore self-pleasure, desires, and needs, and improve sexual health. Masturbation has several health benefits, including stress reduction and the release of hormones that make a person feel better. However, excessive masturbation can decrease sexual desire, prostate cancer, and erection problems.
