What is the truth about side-effects of Masturbation. I heard people saying that it might stunt your growth, etc.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Masturbation stunting growth??? Gosh, if that were true, I'd be two feet tall and working as part of the Lollypop Guild, welcoming folks to Munchkinland.
The only side effects of masturbation are feeling great and having sticky fingers. It will not turn you gay. You won't run out of semen. You won't get hairy palms. It won't make your eyesight go bad. It does not cause acne. It won't cause your penis to shrink. Masturbation is normal and it's healthy!
Stay well, Jack-a-roo! Dr. Bob
