compulsive masturbation

compulsive masturbation

A type of sexual sexual addiction characterised by a constant compulsion to masturbate, either with or without the use of pornography. Compulsive masturbation is often both secretive and isolating; it can be carried out in a scheduled “programme” or routine, or can manifest as “binge” masturbation. Compulsive masturbators often seek help due to underlying anxiety, obsessive behaviour, isolation, depression and the inability to seek or maintain healthy intimate relationships.
