Can too much masturbation hurt your sex life with your partner? Well it depends on whether you mean physically or emotionally? It depends on what you do, how often you do it, and what and who you're thinking of during the deed.

Overly vigorous external stimulation may result in abrasions, and penetrative techniques to achieve arousal and orgasm may cause more severe injury - especially if you're using large objects.

This, of course, will affect your sex life because you'll need time to heal. If that cute co-worker is the cause for your arousal, then stop before you're tempted to act on that fantasy!
