Exclamation Wanking?.. - November 14th 2012, 07:09 PM

Oh my this is awkward. But hi, I'm Maddie Joy.
I don't know if you'd classify this as an addiction, but I wank alot. Like, alot. Three times a day average. I started when I was 14, now It's 2 years later and I'm still at it.
I have odd fetishes, but they really get me going. I'm a virgin 100%. Never even had my first kiss..
But I'm ok with that. I don't want sex until I'm married. Back to the point, I've used vibrators and fingers. But I don't know. It just feels unhealthy how much I get off. And how easily I get turned on. Is it just teenage hormones?
Please, any feedback is welcome. Mwah x

What you're experiencing is normal, and it's a healthy part of your sexual health.
The only point where you should be worried about how much you masturbate is if you're doing physical harm to yourself, or if you're putting off doing other more important activities (such as going out with friends or doing homework) because you'd rather be masturbating.
If that's the case, you could always try picking up a new hobby to occupy your time so you're less inclined to masturbate. Things like going for walks, healthy exercise, or reading a book are good examples.

Totally normal. If you were to the point that you were hurting yourself or shrugged off responsibilities in order to masturbate, then you'd have a problem.

As long as it's not taking up so much time in your life that it is interfering with other things and you are not causing harm to your body, I see nothing wrong with masturbating a few times a day.

Unless you decide to stay home from school to masturbate then it's fine. You're not hurting anybody, it's normal

In my opinion, waiting until marriage is a great thing as it will really feel special. What your doing is PERFECTLY normal. It is your hormones and as life goes on, you'll find out that hormones cause the body to feel and act weird. But, your doing everything right

As everyone else has said, this is perfectly normal. Since it doesn't sound as if it's interfering with your daily life, it hasn't become a problem.

Also, since it seems like no new advice is being offered, I'm going to go ahead and close this. Maddi, feel free to PM me if you would like this thread re-opened. You can also always create a new thread at any time!

foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
