Q&A: Masturbation Guilt And Health Problems

I’m 25 years old and I don’t have sex often, but I have masturbated every day for about two years now and I feel so guilty about it. I’m scared, too, because I’ve heard that masturbation can cause health problems or physical damage. Is that true?

Q&A: Can Masturbation Cause Physical Damage To The Clitoris?

My new girlfriend tells me that she started exploring her genitalia at quite a young age and that she stimulated her clitoris frequently between the ages of 12-18. She now (age 21) thinks that her clitoris is not giving her the normal sensations when it is stimulated (i.e. she wonders if it has possibly been de-sensitized by the earlier activity).
