When you get a good sexual partner in due course of life, this habit fades without letting you know. So, don’t over-react as it could send distracting signals to mind which can have an overall bad health effect.

Answer. Yes, masturbation affects the brain. The sexual responses of the body, the feeling of sensation, sexual fantasies, orgasmic feel, and all the aspects of sex are related to the brain. When you do masturbation, your mind also feels relaxed because the special kind of chemical that secretes during the high time of testosterone in the body is countered by another chemical that secretes after masturbation. And so mind feels relieved of tension and the burden of sexual fantasies.
Q.7 What is the difference between masturbation and addiction of masturbation?
Answer. The difference is very clear and wide. Anyone can figure it out with a small self-analysis. The masturbation is done when the person is feeling sheer urge to ejaculate while the addiction is the situation when you start masturbating on the drop of a coin (like as soon you get the glimpse of sexual content, or get a sexual thought or anything)
When you do the masturbation and get engaged in other productive activities or just get in bed, it is normal. The addiction is when you do the masturbation and thinks of sexual content again and again and again. Your maximum time is spent in cooking sexual thoughts and ejaculating them. (Exception – someday in a week or a month, every person becomes horny)
The addictive behavior can also be observed if the masturbation and sexual thoughts process are repeating itself to the extent that it starts interfering with your important life activities. You are feeling weakness but still doing masturbation, you have a test paper to complete but you are masturbating, you have to go somewhere but you cancel it because you are exhausted due to masturbation, or similar instances. (All such instants can’t be compiled here. Get the feel and understand)
If masturbation is the most important to you, if you have a girlfriend but you prefer masturbation rather than making out with her. If you don’t feel such excitement in bed with your partner as you do during masturbation, if you have a very short and uncontrolled ejaculation because of the masturbation habit, then you might be going towards addictive masturbation.
And the biggest factor to figure out addictive masturbation is when you are repeatedly doing it and still not finding a satisfaction point. Your lust is increasing more and more, dragging you in weakness and fumble, dark eye patches and unnatural cheekbones curving up, you are finding it hard to remember things, the brain is slow like you are on a hangover, feeling fatigued in small physical activities and you can’t help yourself contain your sexual urge. It is the point when you should be aware of your addictive masturbation habit.
Q.8 Is masturbation addiction similar to alcohol addiction?
Answer. In terms of mind practices, it is similar to some extent. Studies show that the satisfaction you get from excessive masturbation and cravings you feed by consuming alcohol, both soothes the same sensory part of the brain. However, the body and mind’s impacts are different as you don’t swallow any harmful substance in your body in masturbation.
Q.9 What is the right age to do masturbation?
Answer. When you achieve puberty, the hormones start showing their signs. Most adults start doing masturbation in their 17s or 18s but there are no guidelines for the right time to do this. However, a man should do masturbation after 21. It is the time when your body becomes ready for proper semen and testosterone production.
Q.10 When and how to quit masturbation?
Answer. When masturbation becomes addiction then it is the time to control it. If you don’t fall in that area then you have nothing to worry about. It would go away with time when you get a good sexual partner.
Q.11 How can I get rid of masturbation addiction ?
Try these methods and you will surely be able to come out of your scenario.
Get a girl (make your girlfriend, even for one night), and spend some time with her. Feel her and understand how it is different from your sexual fantasies. Don’t haste for sex, you can do it later. First, note the difference. Do you find anything irregular or out of order in your mind? Do you need to correct some sex fantasies which lead you to repeated masturbation? Figure out which part of a girl pinches your sexual fantasies the most? In this way, you will be able to match your sexual urges and fantasies with the reality which will bring stability to your thoughts.
When you masturbate, give it the time. Don’t do it in a hurry. It is the biggest factor that will unwillingly take you to premature ejaculation and repeated masturbation. The quick ejaculation also leaves unburned desires in mind that cloud your brain as soon as you become conscious after masturbation.
Don’t keep/hide/suppress any guilt feeling, bad feel, negative thought, or other similar types of feel in your mind. If you have attached masturbation to such aspects, then you need to reestablish your principles. Do you know your mind urges you to do those things again and again that you try to ignore your best.
Engage your mind in other productive things. Set some small goals for yourself, or include a learning activity in your daily schedule. Indulging mind in some productive activities leave a very positive impact on your mind and also brings you out of the void.
Don’t separate yourself from social and family connections. Even if you like to be lonely or you are shy, try to spend some time with your loved ones. Try to share your personal thoughts with them. It helps the mind to develop, create and learn new things, brings a level of maturity in you and you start understanding yourself better.

Your body and your mind tell about it, you should only know how to understand it.

Q.17 When should I masturbate?
Answer. Masturbate whenever you want, but do it in full flow. It should not be half-done. If there is any interruption/ distraction, avoid doing masturbation rather than going for quick ejaculation.

Q.18 Is it ok to watch porn and masturbate?
Answer. It depends upon the frequency of watching porn and doing masturbation. If you watch porn every time during your idle time, it might take you to unsettling levels of sexual desire. The masturbation, in that case, pushes you towards undying desires of lust. It is not good for mind and body. The porn watching and masturbating creates an unusual experience for mind which it can’t get in real life. So, try to keep masturbation as original as possible. Don’t feed your mind on the thoughts and fantasies of others.
