Re: Masturbation-Good or Bad?

Some scientists think that the effect it has on your body is much like if you sleep with your partner too soon: The hormones make you feel good about them, even if it's someone wrong for you. With no actual direction, it can mean feeling that someone almost random can be the butt off these emotions, even if they're not really 'right' for you.

From Wikipedia:

It is held in many mental health circles that masturbation can relieve depression, stress and lead to a higher sense of self-worth [39]. Masturbation can also be particularly useful in relationships where one partner wants more sex than the other – in which case masturbation provides a balancing effect and thus a more harmonious relationship.

In 2003, an Australian research team led by Graham Giles of The Cancer Council Australia[40] concluded that frequent masturbation by males appears to help prevent the development of prostate cancer.

A study published in 1997 found an inverse association between death from coronary heart disease and frequency of orgasm even given the risk that myocardial ischaemia and myocardial infarction can be triggered by sexual activity.

So basically, masturbation relieves stress, helps prevent prostate cancer, and helps prevent coronary heart disease.

I don't see any reason as to why masturbation should be considered bad.

...Headmaster?? I like the brits? Hope that's what you are. Or else I'll sound like an idiot.
The teacher is an idiot for forcing his religious views on his students.
