Masturbation is one of those things we’ve come to know as mainstays in the society. There are way too many young people who engage in the act, so much that most have become addicted to it, and even though they don’t know it, masturbation also has a lot of negatives to it. It can make you lose so much, and before you realise it, it would have been too late. If you’re one of those who practice masturbation and you’re maybe not sure how deep into it you are, then, this post is meant to solve that problem for you.
Here’s how you know you’re addicted to masturbation, and need to stop immediately.
1. YOU CAN’T CUT DOWN ON THE FREQUENCY
If you are finding it difficult to reduce the number of times you jerk off on a daily basis, then you definitely are addicted to masturbation, and must get professional help as soon as possible. The inability to stop is as a result of the fact that you’re hooked.
2. IT’S AFFECTING OTHER PARTS OF YOUR LIFE
A masturbation addict finds it difficult to control the urge; instead, they are controlled by the urge. They can do it at work, in the car, in a public restroom, etc, without minding the consequences. If you’ve had to go late to work or other important event/place because you needed to masturbate, then, you are in it deep and must stop before you inflict more damage on your life.
3. YOU’RE OBSESSED ABOUT IT
It’s an obsession when it’s all you can think about. You can’t look at a woman or man or even a picture without thinking about jerking off— you’re addicted, and need help.
4. IT’S AFFECTING YOUR SEX LIFE
People who masturbate too much tend to care very little about the real deal because they know they can get satisfaction some other way. If you’re losing interest in having actual sex or you maybe aren’t performing as good as you used to, your masturbation is definitely on an unhealthy level.
5. YOU FEEL PHYSICAL PAIN
If you start to feel pain in your privates or your hands as a result of masturbation, then it’s because you’re doing it too much. You need to stop before it’s too late.
6. YOU CARE MORE ABOUT QUANTITY THAN QUALITY
The idea of jerking off is to get maximum sexual satisfaction, but you find out that some people do not really care about how much they enjoy it, but how many times they can go a day. Some even compete with their friends who can go most times a day. If this sounds like you, then, you’re definitely addicted.
If you get this addicted to it, masturbation can damage your life seriously.
