Someone asked us: 

Im 18 and I masturbate frequently for the past few years. I planned on having kids when im 30. But I've had worries that i might have a low sperm count or no sperm at all. Will this effect my chances? 

No, masturbating won’t cause you to have a low sperm count or affect your ability to have children. Masturbating is normal and healthy. And it’s totally okay to masturbate a lot – even more than once a day. As long as masturbation doesn't get in the way of your everyday life, you don't have to worry about doing it too much.
