I find masturbation excellent with dealing with stress. Frustration. Or just something to do when I am bored.
As a student and a relatively young member of this forum (16) I think I speak with very little experience but a hell of a lot of understanding and I think people who bad-mouth masturbation obviously DON'T DO IT and probably think its bad for your health (If you do that you'll go blind).
and ermm...I am not really sure where I am going with this post. My brain seems to have stopped.
