Hi, i'm a fourteen year old girl and i've been wondering for a while is a person is ever too young to masturbate. I've been really curious about this as i'd like to start but have been afraid that because there are laws in place that prohibit sex until a certain age that masturbation falls under those laws, if that makes sense.
Maybe i'm just being paranoid. Either way, help please.

Hey DuckWithGoggles and welcome to Scarleteen!

No, one is never too young to masturbate. In fact, many young children masturbate instinctively.

So long as a person (of any age) masturbates in a place that isn't public, there are no legal considerations. The laws around age and sex have to do with partnered sex.


Here's an article all about masturbation.

Is Masturbation Okay? (Yep.)

Does all this help you worry less?
