You Can Overcome Masturbation Addiction

by admin on April 13, 2011

Are you addicted to masturbation? Before you just wave this off and answer yes, you should do a real inventory of your life priorities. You see, a lot of people don’t actually realize that they are addicted to masturbation until it’s completely consumed their life. Then they fall into a hopeless depression where they feel helpless to overcome masturbation addiction. It doesn’t have to be that way. Anyone can overcome masturbation addiction as long as you have the right tools.

First things first – before you overcome masturbation addiction you need to really ask yourself if you have a problem with masturbation. There are a few very clear signs that you may have a problem. Be honest with yourself about your answers and you can learn if you truly masturbate “normally” or if you have a problem.

Question 1: How much time do you spend masturbating each week? The average person masturbates once or twice in a week, usually for short spurts (no pun intended) of no longer than 10 minutes. If you masturbate more than this, that is the first sign that you may have a serious problem. Serious addicts masturbate multiple times per day, often for an hour or more. You may not be at that point yet, but if you’ve noticed that your masturbation habits are starting to increase, you may be on a dangerous road.

Question 2: Have you been feeling less aroused by normal sexuality activity? Most people, men especially, get turned on at the slightest hint of potential sex. Chronic masturbators, however, tend to take increasingly large amounts of stimulation to get aroused. The frequent masturbation causes them to become somewhat desensitized to real sexual contact, resulting in a reduced sex drive.

Question 3: Do you find yourself not wanting to work toward satisfying your partner(s) in bed? Frequent masturbators get used to the “easy release” of masturbation. Pleasure from masturbation is totally focused on the person masturbating. Thus, all the effort they put in results in direct pleasure for them. When having sex with another person, the need to sometimes focus on the other person becomes distasteful for a chronic masturbator.

Question 4: How much money and time do you spend on pornography? Porn and masturbation often go hand in hand. Chronic masturbators often find that they start to rely on porn to support their masturbation habit. This can lead to spending a ton of time and money hunting down new porn and watching it.

That should give you a better idea of whether or not you might have a masturbation problem. The good news is that you can overcome masturbation addiction with a little work and the right support system. One of the best support systems is the Healthy Sexuality System. It includes a sixth month sponsorship program referred to as the “Mbuddy program.” Your Mbuddy will be a recovered masturbation addict that can guide you through the steps while offering support on a personal level. It’s a great program that has been proven to work to overcome masturbation addiction.
