Let's talk about sex
How common is masturbation?
Masturbation is a natural sexual activity that most people practice at least some time in their lives. There is no normal frequency: some people masturbate more often than others, and it is not considered a problem unless it becomes a compulsive activity that disturbs the normal course of everyday life. An American survey in 2010 investigated the sexual behaviours of nearly six thousand people, revealing that masturbation is more common among teenagers under the age of 14 and adults over 70.
