Question
Hi,
I'm a 21 year old male, i have been masturbating for the last 10 years.Currently my frequency is 5-6 times a week,first i used to come after ten to fifteen minute but since last two years i come after 1 minute.is it premature ejaculation?is my frequency too much?i'm scared about my sex life.

Answer
Your frequency is very average for your age.  Most younger males masturbate about once a day.  Just relax and take your time.  Enjoy what you're doing, and you can learn to put off your orgasm for a few minutes at a time.  Try to take a little longer every week, and soon you will be able to last five minutes.  Masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.
