The only effects of masturbating too much are potential irritation/chafing from handling yourself too roughly, and potential difficulty maintaining relationships and/or attending to responsibilities if masturbation becomes an addiction. Anything you've heard about masturbation stunting your growth, causing blindness, hair loss, hair growth, etc. is a myth.

Holding your penis, firmly press the skin back into your body by placing both thumbs, nails touching, over the shaft and your remaining fingers underneath for support. Be sure not to cut off circulation to the penis. Hold for 10 seconds then relax and repeat. You want to maintain a continuous pump action. The farther back the penis is held, the better your results will be. Repeat once or twice daily for five minutes. This exercise can also be performed while semi-erect.
Consider taking L-arginine. This is an amino acid that leads to increased blood flow, helping the penis get larger during an erection. A study conducted at Tel Aviv University showed that some men experienced improvements after taking the supplement for 6 weeks. It's available in natural food stores, and the recommended dose is 1 gram (0.035 oz) three times a day.[2]
Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
