hello everybody. well, i'm a 22 year old male and just recently (10 days ago) i went on a huge 10 hour porn binge. it was terrible really and i've felt all the symptoms described here. i'm so relieved to finally find a site that expresses what i've always felt. I actually decided to be porn free and masturbation free a long time ago and went for a year and half before my relapse a week ago (which occured partially becuase i wanted to numb the pain from a recent breakup). My question is this.. it says that it's healthy not to mastubate and have an orgasm for 2 weeks and then for as long as possible. while i've felt the result and agree iwth the orgasm part, my question is this: is it ok to masturbate (of course without pornography) if you don't achive an orgasm. The reason i do this is that i find that after long period without any stimpulation it's very hard to last long with my first sexual encounter. Is it unelthy to masturbate if you dont' achieve an orgasm? will it get in the way of my true recovery? i've found that when i do this often the next day i have stronger erections but don't want to continue if it's at the expense of recovering. a respons would be much appreciated. thanks to whoever created this site. you've finally put in words and science what i've always felt to be true.
