Male Masturbation/Quitting

Question
Would it hurt anything if I just quit?  How would that hurt anything?  What if I just quit?

Answer
You couldn't quit masturbating if you wanted to.  Even if you could, a sudden decrease in your ejaculatory frequency could be bad for your prostate gland and other organs.  Male sex organs work best when used frequently.  Regular, frequent ejaculation is good for the body.  I don't think you can quit, but I think you could cut down, perhaps to once a week.  Why not try that and see what happens.
