The Danger of Being Addicted to Masturbating

by admin on April 13, 2011

How often do you masturbate? There is a line between healthy masturbation habit and excessive self-pleasuring. Have you crossed that line? The tricky thing is most people don’t actually realize when they do go too far with masturbation. Masturbation is a generally seen as an innocent act that is completely normal. But just like anything else, doing it excessively can be very dangerous.

Masturbation is especially dangerous because it messes with one of the most important things we do as humans – have sex. Sex and arousal are as much about the brain as they are about the body, and excessive masturbation has a way of rewiring the brain and messing up how a person perceives sex. Being addicted to masturbating can lead to all kinds of problems that can result in negative feelings and broken relationships.

Not convinced? It’s very easy to dismiss the idea of masturbation addiction as just being overly puritan thinking. But let’s examine the threats of being addicted to masturbating more closely. Then perhaps you will understand just how bad this condition can be.

The first thing that happens when a person gets addicted to masturbating is that all their time starts to go down the drain. There is a popular technique among masturbation addicts known as “edging.” This technique involves pushing the body to the point orgasm without actually crossing the threshold. With practice, a person can keep themselves “edging” in this hyper sexual state for an hour or even several. This is often something that addicts do daily, or even multiple times a day. That could add up to over 10 hours of masturbation a week or more!

With all that lost time comes a sense of shame and loneliness. Many people masturbate because they are lonely, but it becomes a consuming problem that actually ends up keeping them from going out and making a real connection.

Sometimes, masturbation addiction can even affect a person in a committed relationship or marriage. In these situations, the addict often finds themselves desiring masturbation more than they even desire their partner. Needless to say, this can tear relationships apart very quickly as the person’s partner beings to feel unattractive and neglected. The wasted time factor also plays a role here: the addict wastes time on masturbation instead of spending time with his or her significant other.

If you’ve already noticed the signs of masturbation addiction in your life, it’s not too late to make a real change. All it takes is the will to do it and a solid system such as the Healthy Sexuality System. This program can guide you through the steps you must take to overcome masturbation addiction.

In addition, it links you with a sponsor known as an Mbuddy. The Mbuddy is totally anonymous, but they are a former masturbation addict and thus can offer real advice based on their own life experiences. This method of therapy has been proven to work wonders and it may be just what you need.
