Male Masturbation/penis and masturbating

Question
Can masturbating hurt the penis skin?  What if I get a nick on my penis?  Wouldn't it hurt like crazy?  What would I do then?

Answer
Yes, it is possible to injure the penile skin through masturbating, but the good news is that you shouldn't expect it to happen more than once every 1000 times.  A nick would hurt like crazy, but most likely you would only cut or tear the skin slightly.  If that happens, just put a little lotion or lube on it and avoid touching that particular spot.
