19 Year Old Woman Masturbates Frequently; Wonders About Health Risks

Sagittarius CupDear Elsa,

I masturbate quite often. I’m worried if this is seriously affecting my health.

United States

Dear Sagittarius,

Is masturbating a lot harmful to your health? No I don’t so. In fact I think it’s enormously healthy and good for you especially considering you have Mars conjunct Pluto in Scorpio and various other sundries that need to find expression… or else.

I can see why you would worry about this though. You’re 19 and you look around and it seems you are far more sexual that your peers. You are far more interested in fantasy and sexual experimentation that your peers and guess what. You’re right! If there is a continuum of sexual interest along which all people fall, you are going to be towards the end of it but so what? This is who you are.

Forget the worry. Unless this is interfering with your work or school… unless you have crossed the line into a bona fide addiction (where your masturbating is causing problems outside of “worry” which is a false thing ala “manufactured fear”), then I think you should continue doing exactly what you’re doing because you need the release. It’s actually healthy for you… when you have a muscle, you ought to flex it.

I say accept and embrace your sexuality because it is part of your nature. And for people who gawk at you like you are some kind of freak… never mind them because they have monkeys of their own to deal with, don’t let them tell you otherwise.

Good luck.

  1. I wish more women would (admit to and)masterbate. No, seriously! How else are you going to learn about your body if you expect everyone else to do the exploring?

    Sadge, I’m a highly sexual Pisces, who’s been in touch — heh — with my own sexuality since I hit puberty. It’s made intimacy with other people so much easier, so much more enjoyable.

    And like Elsa said, as long as it’s not interfering with the rest of your life, there’s nothing wrong with it at all!

    Have fun! 😀
