Can masturbate lessens random erections

Patient: Hi im a 17 year old boy and im still getting random erections i probably masturbate 2 times a day do you think masturbating less will cause less erections?

 

 

Doctor: There are 2 points I would like to make clear here.Firstly, random erections are a normal part of male arousal and I w ould not be concerned form a medical standpoint.Secondly, no amount of masturbation should cause any long term erectile difficulties.
