Question. I am 24 years old. For the last six years, I have been addicted to masturbation. Now, the habit has become a serious obsession. At first I felt satisfied and enjoyed it a lot. But for the last three years, it has become a painful exercise. I haven’t been able to pass stool properly. When I do, semen comes out of my penis. Also, my penis is not as strong as it was before and it has reduced in size. Even when I masturbate, I haven’t been ejaculating properly. I am terribly nervous about this. Is this the end of my sex life?
Answer. The way you have described your woes, it seems like nothing’s working in your body and your penis will soon disappear. Rest assured no harm will come, or has come to you because of masturbation. But you should masturbate only when you feel aroused. See your doctor regarding your physical problems and you will be fine.
