Masturbation -- for anyone -- is basically simply whatever people do, with their own bodies, for themselves, which feels sexually pleasurable for them. That can just be about stimulating your genitals (your penis, testicales, anus) with your hands or other objects, and/or it may be about stimulating other parts of your body which feel good to you.

But masturbation does not increase or change the size of a penis, no.

Here's more on male masturbation for you: Jerking Off.

I'm sorry your class or instructor didn't clue you in Demon7. Heather's right it's all about pleasure and learning about your body. You can have all the confidence in the world about this, and it's perfectly healthy and normal. It's ok to masturbate as much as you need to (alot of guys do it everyday, me probably three or four times a week), I would just suggest that you find a private and comfortable place so you can relax and enjoy every minute of it.
