There is no such thing as being too young to masturbate. It’s a personal decision. Most people masturbate, and the age you decide to start is up to you.  

Masturbation is completely normal. It can help you explore your body and learn what feels good to you sexually. Bonus: there’s no risk of pregnancy or STDs

As long as you do it in private, masturbating is harmless. It’s a good idea to set boundaries in your home or living space. Find somewhere where you can be alone and speak to your family about knocking before they enter your space. Everyone deserves to feel comfortable exploring their own body in private.
