[FONT="Palatino Linotype"][COLOR="DimGray"][SIZE="3"]Hey there,

I'm sorry to hear that you were touched when you were younger and that you feel you can't stop masturbating and watching porn. I hope we can help you.

Firstly, there's nothing wrong with masturbating and watching porn (depending on your age as in some areas you have to be 18 or 21 to watch porn). As long as you aren't masturbating instead of doing other things e.g. school work or spending time with friends, and you aren't harming yourself by masturbating, there's nothing wrong with it.

That said, it sounds like you feel you can't stop and I'm wondering if you feel you are doing it compulsively e.g. not necessarily because you want to but you feel you have to? Also, while some people may feel negatively after masturbating (due to beliefs from family/society/religion that masturbating is taboo) it seems like your feelings may be linked to what you experienced when you were younger?

Since masturbating is bringing up difficult feelings for you, I'm wondering if it might help to see if you can cut down on how much you masturbate? When the urge hits, you can try to distract yourself instead. You might want to check out our alternatives page http://www.teenhelp.org/alternatives/ for ideas on healthy things to do instead of masturbating or cutting.

You don't need to cut out masturbating entirely if you don't want to but if you do continue to masturbate, it might help to remind yourself that you aren't in the past anymore and that you are in control of your body.

I'm wondering if you have confided in anyone about what you experienced when you were younger or if you are having counselling/therapy at all? Since this is negatively affecting you, it might help to talk to a professional as they may be able to help you to balance your masturbating and the feelings that you have afterwards in a healthy way.

Feel free to reply or use our Live Help and HelpLINK features if you feel it might be helpful. You can also check out RAINN https://www.rainn.org/ for help dealing with sexual abuse.[/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]
