ANSWER: Masturbation does not make your nerves weak.  Most males your age masturbate about once a day.  If you are really having problems with your nerves and your hands, etc., then you should see a doctor, but masturbation is not the cause, especially when you don't even masturbate as often as most men your age.

QUESTION: I donot have any bad habits like smoking

It's good that you don't smoke.  Smoking is bad for you.  But masturbating is good for you.  Please read what I wrote above.  Masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.  Most men your age masturbate once a day, sometimes more.  See the link I suggested:

I write from the point of view that masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary to sexual health. I am able to answer questions in all areas of sexuality.


I am the author of the web site and have been answering questions about sexuality (especially masturbation) from both males and females for over 13 years.

I have a Ph.D. in a field unrelated to sexuality from one of the leading educational institutions of the world.
