>>734230017 But you don't have to masturbate. It could be considered a self-destructive habit of you take it too far, and it's not needed for your body to function. It's just a quick way to fire up the reward centers of your brain.
By the way, i imagine this is difficult for some of the younger guys in here to understand this, but... when your need to masturbate is satiated, it's... horrible trying to force yourself to masturbate again.
Like, the idea that you could just masturbate endlessly and keep getting orgasm after orgasm is just a fantasy you have while horny, or when you're pretty young, like in the early teens.
When your sex drive drops off, forcing yourself to masturbate(or fuck for that matter) when not horny is not a fun happy-time easy pleasure route, it's fucking WORK, or... even torture.
So I am a recovering herion addict. For me drugs set off a catalyst, once I take one I can't stop until someone or something stops me. Now I would consider myself a porn addict aswell. But my thing is like im just a plain addict. Anthing that makes me feel good I will abuse so I kinda have to watch out for that and work on myself mentally so I don't do it. The difference between a drug addiction and a porn/materbation is different in the science and the consequences. Drugs trick your brain into thinking that it needs them. Sex can be the same, but unless your fucking kids or raping people your not gonna go to jail. And for me since i got clean from drugs have found i will act out in all other ways, like fucking anything that comes my way, stealing, diving fast, gambling ect, but i can controll those things, unlike drugs. Pic semi unrelated
>>734233174 And yeah I've found that on my dry spells ill masterbait at least twice a day and then when i do end up fucking a girl its hard for me to keep it up and even hard for me to cum without jerking myself off and it just isn't as pleasurable. After about a week or so of fucking and not jerking off its back to normal but still.
>>734229304 The difference lies in the fact that other addictions are chemically based, while masturbation addiction is emotional. The guys who claim that masturbation harms you (aside from friction burns or if you manage to actually break you dick in your zeal for an orgasm) have never provided me with any empirical evidence for it. This is a remnant of puritanism, without religion being a necessary component.
>>734233441 Not sure exactly what you mean, but not really. Its something I'm having to learn how to do. For many years all I did was chase the next high, or big score, or ass, whatever, and was always plottibg and scheeming and didn't stop to enjoy little things. Didn't know how. But now i can
>>734234021 It still takes a specific sort of mind to get addicted to masturbation, drugs on the other hand can make addicts out of almost anyone. I'm not saying that people can't masturbate to excess, I'm saying that advocating against normal masturbation habits is excess in the other direction.
>>734234381 I agree. And being a herion addict, i consider sex/masterbation addiction to be a joke if not a falsehood. Nobody should be forced or told what to do with their bodies. There is healthy masterbaiting and unhealthy, and i have experienced both and the latter definitely has side effects
>>734233702 Stuff like gambling is an addiction and is a non-substance addiction.
Porn can be a problem like heroin is for some. The really nasty part is that relapsing is easy AF as you just have to fantasize over porn, rather than having to get some money and drive to a dealer's house.
>>734237749 That might seem like a sound logic, but I have been in forced abstinence before, even quit for a while to prove to myself and other that i wasnt an addict. It's like in shameless frank was doing great quitting booze because it was for like 3 grand
>>734237623 It can be an addiction, I agree, but I posit it is emotional and through that a different creature to chemical addiction. Some no fap guys claim that any amount of fapping, constitutes addiction and that it physically harms you. I'm just here to say that healthy amounts of masturbation exists and that the puritan notion of all masturbation being a mental/physical disease has been debunked.
The typical "sex addict' isn't the same as an addict who faps to porn all day. Hypersexuality is a compulsion but not a true addiction. It's more of an intense drive, like how some people have for eating (in a way). Porn addiction is DIFFERENT and involves a narcotic-like functioning.
With hypersexuality, it's easier to treat, as an example, for some something like meds to lower libido helps, and for porn addicts it's a struggle for them every day to relapse (if they quit) and gets negative side effects like how you would for heroin, cocaine and alcohol.
>>734239919 I understand what your getting at. But i have never met a social heroin user who did not later become very addicted and have negative consequences. Not to mention where I am (MA) the herion is killing people left and
>>734239919 I know anon, that is why I conceded his point in spite of personally having a strong distaste for heroin. >>734239923 It's odd, I've tried coke once and it did nothing for me but provide me with a night long headache, yet I am addicted to cigarettes. Body chemistry is odd.
>>734240357 I think it was a combo of both. Luckily it made my reaction to powdered drugs negative, they make me feel ill when I see them. So I'm avoiding at least some of the shit out there that can fuck me over.
