Men Masturbation Make Your Penis Smaller

Masturbation is a sexual act that involves self-sexual stimulation of the genitals for sexual arousal and sometimes up to the point of achieving an orgasm. The act of sexual stimulation is usually done by hand, fingers, or with sex toys such as vibrators or dildos.
