Post masturbation and girlfriend

hi all!

i have a question i was hoping could get some advice on. i'm 19 and have been going w/my girlfriend for almost a year now. b4 we got together i prolly masturbated 4-5 times a week, but now i only do it 1-2 times a week or less cuz obviously me and her are doing stuff a lot, not intercourse yet but oral instead. the problem is, we talk about this sometimes (masturbation) and she feels hurt that i still do it, as if she's not satisfying me enough. i try to explain to her it's still a normal thing and when i'm alone and i get aroused, i will still want to jack off cuz she's not always there obviously. maybe something is wrong w/me...do u guys still masturbate frequently or at all when you have a gf and are active w/her? if what i'm doing is still normal, then can someone please suggest a better way to explain things to her and make her feel less down about it?

thanks a lot!

My hubby of six years still masturbates, not to mention the fact that I still do too! I think it's completely normal. Sometimes you just need release without it actually being a sexual thing. Does that make sense? At least, that's how I feel about it.

It is completely natural to continue to masturbate. And you said you lowered the number of times per week that you are doing it because you are dating this girl now. That means that masturbating is not getting in the way of your relationship. Some people take this personally as your girlfriend has. Just keep trying to talk to her. You are not alone and what you are doing is perfectly natural.

hey man, i think what ur doin is completely normal. ive been datin this girl for a while now, and im just like u, i used to do that alot then i reduced it, when we started dating. u just need to tell her that its a normal thing and that its healthy for u mentally. it helps u relieve stress and has nothing to do with her not being able to satisfy u, becuz im sure she does that. just tell her how much u appreciate her and that this in no way will ever affect that!

I have been with my husband for 8 years and he still masturbates. It doesn't bother me. Its his and he can play with it all he wants. Your gf is just going to have to understand. She's needs to be more open minded and realize that all men do this no matter who they are with and how often they have sex.
