Hello Luke,

 

Guys masturbate all the time even when they don't have schizophrenia so you are not unusual in this behavior.  It is not a sin; it is something guys do.

 

Masturbating will not cause you to have a wrong delusion either.

Masturbation will not hurt you, although if you are obsessed with it, you might want to talk to a counselor.  One positive aspect of masturbation is that you come to figure out exactly where you like to be touched or what stimulates or arouses you.  Then you can share this with a future partner and teach them what kind of sex you like.  (I found this out from Dr. Oz!)
