Compulsive Masturbation and Porn | Sex and Intimacy

“Compulsive Masturbation? I just like porn –a lot!”

While many people with sexual problems race to therapy the moment they have serious relationship, legal, work or health problems related to their sexual behavior, the solitary nature of those who compulsively masturbate often leaves their actions less subject to obvious problems. The compulsive masturbator will more often seek out therapy for relief from his depression, loneliness and relationship problems and not necessarily for sexual issues as compulsive masturbation carries some of the most shame, secrecy and isolation of all problem sexual behaviors– in both men and women.

Often avoidant of intimate sexuality and healthy intimacy in adult life and frequently raised with extensive histories of childhood abuse and/or neglect, compulsive masturbators are often the last to seek help as they don’t see or relate to their solo sexual behaviors as being an underlying source of their adult unhappiness. Many attend psycho-therapy for long periods of time unfortunately never discussing (sometimes never being asked to discuss) masturbation, thus their problem remains underground and untreated.

Compulsive masturbators do eventually have negative life consequences caused for example by viewing inappropriate materials i.e. child porn, physical injury or by masturbating in inappropriate places i.e. the workplace or car. However, the most frequent the long-term negative consequence of compulsive masturbation (with or without porn) is a life devoid of closeness, longstanding feelings of detachment, removed from deep emotions and relationship connections. Compulsive masturbators constantly live with hidden, isolation and shame along with an inability to work through the deeper psychological issues that are often the engine driving these addictive sexual behavior patterns.

  1. I put the fact that I masturbate over pictures of my sisters down to the fact that my first handjob was off my sister Emma when I was 12. I first properly ejaculated as a result of a handjob off Emma when i was 13. Did anyone else have similar experiences.

  2. I do feel shame, and it is part of the arousal cycle. And I have many negative consequences, lost career opportunities, smaller network of non-masturbator friends, and loss of wife’s pussy. But can I change it? No. Would I change it? Probably not.

  3. haven’t experienced the negative repercussions of masturbation addiction, only the gr8 and wonderful life the cums with being a chronic addicted masturbator. I love every minute of it, simply love it, wouldn’t change a single stroke
