  • It's been suggested to me by my therapist that I stop masturbating for thirty days.

    I told him that it just wasn't possible for me to do so. As it turned out, I was wrong about that.

    A long time went by before I did happen to refrain for thirty days. It started out as seven days of my being extremely busy before noticing that a week had passed. I thought OK, I'll shoot for thirty days. It turned out to not be a big deal.

    He said that thirty days is sufficient time for hidden emotions to surface, to then be dealt with.

    I found there to be no upwelling of new emotions.

    When I told him that I'd refrained for the prescribed time and that I had noticed nothing in particular of an emotional nature, he said to go another thirty days.

    I indulged in self-pleasure as soon as I arrived home from our session.

    In my situation of being married to a completely asexual woman, I see no reason to forego even a solo sex life.

    I value the time spent with my therapist. We just happen to disagree on that point.

    • Sorry to hear about your wife being asexual. Good that you are at least finding enjoyment solo.

    • Thanks, I deal with it.

  • I STRUGGLED for years! I just couldn’t fall asleep- I was going 1-3 times a day and the depravity of porn was escalating into chats, sexting, etc. until I felt like I felt the urge to make my relationship with my wife better. I decided to give all my sexual energy to her and only she can allow masturbation. It’s tough from time to time, but our sex life is SOOOO much better than it used to be!

    I used to roll around and toss and turn trying not to masturbate. I’d eventually give in and do it just to get to sleep. If not that, I’d be trying to get work done around the house and I’d see something or hear something that would set me off and I couldn’t concentrate on my tasks until I had a big orgasm.

    Now, 6 years since giving her control, I’m MUCH more in control of my life because she’s in control. I’ve gone from 700-1000 cummies a year to under 100 and it’s been SUCH a blessing!

  • No. I’ve never done this. Well, not since I was like thirteen and my priest said masturbation was okay. Not forbidden by the Bible or anything. That was the last time I really struggled with masturbation. Since then it’s been pretty much guilt free.
