Hi there,

masturbation is a very normal and natural part of a person's sexuality, and during the teen years masturbation typically happens more frequently.

Your physical urges to masturbate are not abnormal, but if you feel as if you are masturbating too often than consider doing it less often rather than not at all - as otherwise you are probably setting yourself up to fail.

If you want to not masturbate every time you get an erection use other activities to divert your attention. But deciding on total self-denial is unlikely to work.
