is masturbation harmful and will result memory loss im a 13 years old , and sometimes i masturbate frequently, is this okay?, and will not result loss of memomory?, and when i masturbate i feel i need to release some stools, is this okay?

Masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.  It will not harm your memory and is probably good for your brain.  More educated and intelligent people masturbate more than others.  Masturbation sometimes causes a feeling that you are aware of in your intestines, but as you get more practice, you will be able to ignore the feeling.  Have lots of fun!

Feel free to ask me more questions!

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.
