Default masturbation

well i will be honest. sometimes when i am depressed i do self love. seems to help, doesnt make me super happy but it does get rid of the sadness. and i guess thats whats important. figured since it is natural im better off doing that than going on medication. has anyone else tried this form of "treatment"? i know it sounds a bit gross but for me especially it does work!

I actually had a shrink ask me once if I did...his reasoning was that if you masturbate, then you care enough about yourself to give yourself pleasure. I know that when I am depressed I can't no matter how hard I try :(

hey woundedheart

you should try focus on something besides the cause of your depression when you do it, other "media" may do the trick. thats what usually works for me. and yeah il always do it because i hate the idea of taking pills that could potentially damage my body.

You know what's funny....it actually used to be the way they treated forms of depression and...hysteria I think it was....back years and years and years ago. Doctors would administer it too...either with pressure water or just....do it themselves...lol....If you don't believe me I think you can do a google search on it...I can't remember what year it was in...maybe 1800's...I can't remember but I was recently shown this on a history website...they even had pictures of how it was administered.

I'm guessing they used to think....if you were hysteric or unhappy you obviously needed a bit of lov'n?...can't say I disagree with that one....well...not entirely anyway...sex...and masterbation are great ways to cheer you up because they release endorphins

Religions say it immoral, but maybe I don't see why it should be. I haven't 'gone blind' yet. It reduces stress and some say that frequent ejaculation lessens the risk of prostate cancer. So if it is done in private and as long as you don't have any disturbing thought/fantasies while your doing it, what is so wrong about it?

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.

by those idiots saying that, they are making the whole unplanned pregnancy problem / std transmission rate bigger. but they never see it that way because they can never fault themselves. i think theres a reason why we can do it.

Religion says anything to do with pleasure is immoral, the religion wasn't always like that either, I can't give an exact date but there was some Pope dude that declared all physical things were sins, and everything spiritual wasn't. Satanism contrary to everyday belief counteracts the religion by embracing all pleasure...and know they have nothing to do with sacrifices and all that hype given by the media.

That's really interesting about the media using it as a cure for stuff. I tried to look because I thought that was interesting but could not find the articles in google.

You know there are some religions that actually believe Masturbation is key to a lot of good things. LoL I don't know, I know that for me Masturbation is used as a way of masochism when I do it or I can't feel, so the only way for me to feel is with pain...I don't really get pleasure from it though.

But if it helps it helps! :). I think the only concern would be if it became an addiction and started to take over your entire life.

Of course I masturbate. You know how they say if you masturbate you will go blind?

Well.... I guess I masturbated a bit too much as a kid. Wink.

All right all joking aside, I use it masochistically too. For me masturbating is a form of self harm. Same page as AlbinoRat.

Although I can see how it would be therapeutic for a lot of people.
