What the hell is chronic masturbation? That makes it sound like a disease. What exactly makes it chronic? How and why does it become a problem? Is it weekly, daily, at business meetings or in public restrooms? I honestly donít get where the problem is. Does it make you feel guilty? Why?
If his approach to masturbation is anything like mine was when I was younger (and still is today on occasion) it was fraught with dual feelings of pleasure, of course, but also a base, animalistic, uncontrollable urge over my sexuality that seemed to mimic my abusers lack of restraint psycholoigically catagorizing myself as no better than they were. In this respect it did almost feel like a disease that I "caught" from them. Masturbation is afterall a sex act and has just as much ability to cause all those feelings of the abuse to arise as any other encounter might, especially the feeling of lacking all control.
Not sure if any of that makes sense but that's what I felt when I read the post.
