Addicted to Masturbating?

Dear Mouthy Housewives,

I’m not really sure if you give this type of advice but I was wondering if there are any negatives from abstaining from masturbating? I do it five to six times a day and I would like to maybe give it up for the year?

Signed,

Dear It’s a Hobby,

Welcome to the Mouthy Housewives! You must be new here because if you weren’t, you’d know we’ve answered that question a million times. “Are there any negatives to abstaining from masturbating” is right up there in popularity with “my mother-in-law is driving me crazy” and “Facebook etiquette.”

So is there a downside to no longer masturbating five or six times a day? I can’t think of any negatives but I can think of a few positives like you’d have time for a job and wouldn’t have to buy as much lotion.

Although I’m not sure I’d advocate going cold turkey for a whole year. Maybe just try cutting back a bit. Perhaps it’s time to put down the porn and get outside. I know lots of people are addicted to exercise. I haven’t yet figured out how to acquire this addiction but it seems like a good one. So get out and start running, biking or hiking. And if this masturbation issue is really concerning you, you might also want to seek the advice of a therapist.

But wait, are you a 16-year-old boy? Then sorry, you’re totally fine. There’s nothing wrong with you. Go about your business and someday you’ll outgrow this.

Okay, I’ve gotta run. I need to go explain to my husband why I’ve been googling, “How To Stop a Masturbation Addiction.”

Good luck,

Kelcey, TMH

Comment by BOB is my friend.

It appears given the lotion remark you are assuming the letter writer is male. As a female in her mid 30′s married to a man in his late 40′s I could have written a similar version of that letter. When DH just isn’t interested more than once a week, you have to go the self service route and yes, sometimes it is multiple times a day.

Consider checking into testosterone replacement for your mate. And if it works, you’re welcome.

Just watch the movie Requiem for a Dream several times. It will snuff out any impulses of sexuality and happiness and desire to live.

I suppose one negative from not masturbating 5-6 times a day is your hand strength will decline.

Hopefully he/she knows to alternate hands. Can you imagine the disproportionate forearm muscles. Embarrassing!

Aside from not being able to share your hobby with your coworkers, what’s wrong with it?
