Our expert says:
Masturbation is a normal ‘sexual milestone’ and most teenagers will start masturbating between 12 – 15 years of age. Negative messages about masturbation, sometimes received from religious groups or parents, can cause unnecessary guilt or stress. The frequency of masturbation varies from person to person. Relax and accept yourself and your sexual development positively. These negative attitudes can cause problems in sexual relationships later in life.
