Question
i have heard that there is a layer on the penis that goes away when a male is not a virgin.  i want to know if masturbating will make this layer go away.  can i lose my virginity by masturbating?

Answer
I have never heard of such a layer.  Most males would say their penis stays the same from puberty on.  You cannot become a non-virgin by masturbating.  The only way to lose your virginity is to have sex with another person.  Masturbating is normal and healthy and fun and will not affect virginity.
