Q: I am worried, that I masturbate too much?
A: Here are some physical and psychosexual symptoms, that may indicate, you have a habit, that is affecting your life negatively.
1. You hurt yourself. It could be a mild skin chafing, or a condition called reduced penile sensitivity (RPS) or so called Death-grip syndrome (DGS), caused by using too much pressure while stroking it. Desensitization from overstimulation is enough to cause erectile dysfunction (ED).
2. You feel guilty and your intimate life, family, work and social life suffers. Of all the types of acting out, with or without adult content, is maybe the most secretive and isolating.
3. You find it difficult to release. Basically you teach your brain and body to get off, only by using a specific type of visual and physical stimuli, and you experience problems getting it up, or finishing with a real-life partner.
4. You try to cut back, but fail. One of the major criteria, of any type of out of control behavior is the loss of control.
