Masturbation is one of the most addictive habits that have affected a large number of people all around the world. Both men and women can indulge in this habit and eventually might end up in loss of mental peace and a persistent effort of guilt. Masturbation addiction is usually associated with pure physical pleasure but sometimes people intentionally or unintentionally link it with the mental rest. According to different scientists all around the world this interpretation of masturbation addiction is not true. Associating the masturbation with relied of mental stress is considered lame. In the long run this inculcates the sense of guilt, restlessness and dissatisfaction.
Though many studies have proved that limited number of masturbation cycles may not result in major physical changes in your body but still the social and psychological effects of masturbation addiction are under-reported. This is considered taboo in most of the social circles and almost every religion discourages such indulgences. This is the main reason that masturbation addiction is usually associated with feeling of guilt and disgrace.
There is not a definite number of how many times one will masturbate to be included in the category of masturbation addiction. It would be wise to say that whenever the feelings of sexual arousal that subsequently lead to act of masturbation become uncontrollable by will and start to interfere with your daily performance and social life this should be considered as masturbation addiction. Proper psychological treatment must be considered for such problems to improve the psychological status of the person and enhance the self esteem and composure.
