side-effects of masturbation
Feb 4, 2005

Does vigorous masturbation will result in HIVs or some STDs. Also what are the side-effects of masturbation.

Response from Dr. Frascino


No, despite what Sister Missionary Position might have taught you in Sunday school, masturbation does not result in HIV or STDs.

What are the "side effects of masturbation?" well, let's see . . . ah . . . sticky fingers, feeling ecstatic, grunting or maybe screaming Oh My Goddddddd! and finally getting yelled at by your mom for being in the bathroom too long with the door locked.

Testing too early?
