Excessive Masturbation

Masturbation addiction can affect social and personal relationship life. It is a sexual addiction disorder that manifests guilt after masturbation, less involvement in socializing events, hampers day-to-day activities at school and work, the compulsion to masturbate even when not feeling to do so, and masturbating in negative situations. Talk therapy and medications help in overcoming masturbation addiction. Engaging in activities, avoiding triggers, and joining groups with similar goals also help in its management.
