Do I Masturbate too Often?

mastubating too oftenI’m a 31 year old married male and masturbate at least 5 times a day on average. Sometimes I can do it as often as 10 times in one day. Is this normal? Is there something wrong with me? Or does everyone please themselves like this but don’t admit to it?

Everyone, at some point or another, will please themselves. Some do it more often than others. There isn’t really a “right” amount of times to masturbate on any given day. What’s important is that you don’t let your habit interfere with your everyday life nor should you let it interfere with your marriage or sex life.

The reason for excessive masturbation is usually not sex related. This is usually caused by high levels of stress or anxiety. It might be a good idea to pinpoint what is causing all this stress and to try to find a permanent solution to eliminate the stress or to at least minimize it to a level where you’re not constantly looking for an escape or release.

Another point worth mentioning is the possibility of injury. It could be something mild like skin chaffing or a more serious condition like Peyronie’s disease (the buildup of plaque in the shaft of your penis that can result from using too much pressure while masturbating). Softening your grip can help you avoid most injuries caused during masturbation.

If your masturbation habit isn’t hurting you or anyone around you, I don’t see anything wrong with choking the chicken multiple times a day. If this is causing you to lose interest in your better half or if it is interfering with your life in any way, I would suggest trying to cut back or even seeing a therapist about trying to reduce the amount of time you’re spending alone with your penis.
