A much-debated issue gets a closer look in light of Single's Day. I hope you can help me with a dilemma. I am a year-old man who is single and lives a healthy life. I confess, when I was much younger, I was somewhat mischievous and had no self-control and was masturbating on a regular basis. Every time I engaged in this, I felt guilty and worried.
Masturbation is self-stimulation of the genitals for pleasure and self-comfort. Children may rub themselves with a hand or other object. Masturbation is more than the normal inspection of the genitals commonly observed in 2-year-olds during baths. During masturbation, a child usually appears dazed, flushed, and preoccupied. A child may masturbate as often as several times each day or just once a week.
