From A Respected Leading Authority
Masturbation addiction is a very common addiction particularly with men but also with woman with the easy access of porn
on the internet it can be used as a release from anxiety and depressive moods but it can be a very serious addiction which can affect that individual’s life.
I have treated many people males and females for masturbation addiction and I have found it can be a really serious Addiction based on the Taboo factor and the individual doesn’t know where to turn.
The most common downsides of masturbation addiction can be:
Lack of energy or motivation to get simple tasks done
Can seriously affect relationships to the point of break up
Can affect that individuals work to the point of constantly calling in sick to stay at home to masturbate or even worse they find there selves masturbating at work
Can stop that individual looking for relationships if not already in one
Can make that individual full of guilt or low self-worth
Most clients that I see for masturbation Addiction find it hard to talk about as it is still such a Taboo subject and not
one they can speak openly to their friends and family about, it can also be very hard to realise when the problem is occurring if it’s a problem issue or a healthy activity, from my experience it becomes a problem if the client finds it effects there daily life.
