Heavily addicted to masturbation, how to stop? Consequences?

Posted , 31 users are following.

Hi, I am 24 year old asian male, never had a girlfriend. I used to masturbate almost everyday since I was a teen, and each time, i came. Everytime I came, I felt sinful. Each time I tried to stop, after not touching myself for a few days, I have the strong urge to masturbate again - the feeling to release the load. It kinda became a habit and it is really hard not to have the feel of not to do it.

Today marks the 7th day of me, not touching myself and the feeling sucks. I get aroused and fantasized at small little things easily. I am really determined to control myself not to end this streak.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestion to perservere on here. On the side note, since I ejaculate almost everyday last time, I believe my balls are used to produce the amount of sperms. What happen to these sperms if they are not released like what I used to release them? I am afraid that I may be infertile in the future. Could anyone advise?cry

    You are suffering from inappropriate guilt about masturbation. This is a cultural phenomonen sometimes referred to as DHAT syndrome and goes back to anchant teachings about the evils of sperm loss.

    You will need to rid yourself of that nonsenscical guilt. Masturbation is a normal expression of your sexuality. It is healthy and necessary and does not have any untoward effects. It does not cause infertility and will have no ill-effects on your or your future marreage. It is univercilly practised by both men and women. So please, stop beating yourself about it.

    Hi Curious90, I had the same exact guilt when I first started to masturbating as a teen.

    After understanding that it is simply a normal bodily function and not harmful at all. I finally learned to enjoy this gift of nature.

    I remember a couple of funny, but wise quotes that I heard from some folks I respect very much.

    1. If God didn't want us to masturbate, he wouldn't have made our arms so long ! - and

    2. The people that say they don't masturbate - are probably lieing !

    LOL, funny but true...  SO relax and enjoy this wonderful gift that nature has given us.
