My question is exactly what the title reads
Is masturbating without ejaculation, still count as masturbation. In other words stroking my penis, getting it up, but not having an orgasm or ejaculating count as masturbation.
I'm at a point where I'm trying to quit the habit of masturbating and porn. Together and individually. Both I believe have very negatively affected my sexual well being. Because of them I have always had trouble with real sexual intercourse with women. I'm 32 now, and still have this problem. I have quit watching porn on Jun 3 2010, but stupidly went to a strip club on Jun 27 2010. So In reality I quit on Jun 28 2010. At the same time I quit ejaculation also Jun 28 2010. It has now been about 22 days. I do feel better, but I have stroked my penis on a number of occasions. so I would like to know
Is stroking my penis without ejaculation count as masturbation and does it hurt my recovery?
