when do teens usually outgrow masturbation?
 
When do teens outgrow masturbation? I have been masturbating since I was 14 and now I'm 17. I feel like it has stunted my growth because during freshman year I used to be taller than this one guy I know. Now I notice my face has shrunk a bit, and my height has not really increased over the years. Is there a possibility that masturbating can stunt one's growth and development?

I don't think teens grow out of masturbation. They grow out of being teens first :)

There is no way your masturbation stunted your growth. In fact, having a healthy sex drive would indicate that everything was working properly. Your height is probably just the result of your genetics. I've seen many people who are tall when they're young end up not-so-tall adults, and vice versa.

I'd be more concerned about eating a healthy diet, and getting all your vitamins for good bone and muscle growth.

Masturbation is normal and healthy so don't think you did yourself any harm. Take care.

First of all, masturbation doesn't stunt your growth.

Second of all, masturbation isn't just a teen thing. You don't outgrow it.
