Masturbation is good for you.  It is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.  Most males your age who are not sexually active masturbate about once a day.  So you are doing it less often than average for your age.  Masturbation does not make your arms thin.  If it does anything, it makes them thicker.  I would encourage you to keep masturbating as often as you are and maybe to do it more often.  You should also start lifting weights, which will make your arms bigger.  A healthy diet will also help.

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 in the world.
