DO I HAVE AN ADDICTION??

i think i have a sex addiction. im not sure what exactly a sex addict is but i have to say that i usually masterbate at least 10 times a day. i think that might be a lot for a woman but maybe not a for a man. is this normal? is it too much? or should i do it more?

  • there was a lady on The Doctors.
    she had this problem.
    All i can say is go and talk to a doc.
    I can have sex all the time but i can control it.
    hope you get help.

  • Hun, ten times a day is a lot for a man. I'd say you might have an addiction. If it's more of a physical need than a mental need then it could even be a medical problem. Is this consistent or are you just going through a period of strong sexual feelings?

  • You should talk to your doctor, sex addiction can start with an addiction to masturbation but progress to dangerous behavior.

  • You need to seek psychological/medical assistance. That is not normal for anyone, male or female. Maybe you have anxiety or something. Try to work with your doctor to find other ways to relieve your stress/anxiety.

  • Sounds like a masturbation addicition rather than a sex addiction. Maybe compulsive behavior is more like it. If you can fit it into your day, I guess it is harmless enough. But if you make decisions about your life around it, then it might be a problem.
