Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?

Masturbation is to be limited or stopped completely. Whenever I used to masturbate I would get a headache/backache, problems with racing thoughts, weakness, tiredness, low energy, feeling empty, etc. I had to limit the amount I masturbated in my early twenties because I realized that the reason I felt so much anxiety and other problems was because I was masturbating 2+ times a day. It does have some benefits, but if you weigh them against the cons it seems clear that it is harmful and a waste of time. However, sex with a partner would not be a waste, as you are connecting on a physical level with someone you're attracted to.
