Re: Too much masturbation??

How often a person masterbates is based on their sex hormone levels...ex: too high/too low. Hormones fluctuate every day in men and women. If a person is genetically susceptible to addictions, ex: a craving/a release---the brain learns to expect that release unless it is weaned off of the habit. There's a great book called Mapping the Mind that talks in detail about how the brain works sexually. It's all chemical. This is also why commercials for antidepressants warn of "sexual side effects" aka loss of libido. Wanting to masterbate in addition to sex should not be taken personally. It's wired.
