Like almost anything, it’s all about moderation (and it depends how a person is masturbating). If masturbation is causing physical discomfort or is negatively affecting a person’s life (i.e. losing interest in/not participating in other activities to masturbate) then it might be too much. Another issue is how it’s affecting relationships. If someone is masturbating exclusively with the use of Internet porn, problems can arise (no pun intended). Masturbating to porn can make it difficult for people to engage in real relationships, thus causing a problem.
