are you still going to school? doing your chores? not allowing the masturbation to rule your life? as long as you dont let it interfer with your daily responsibilities, 5-6 times is fine. how ever many times is fine. masturbation is totally healthy as long as it doesnt rule you. at your age, 4 a day was regular for me.

DoubleM agony auntWell that post from the anonymous female cracked me up. Would be somewhat true if she had known me about 45 years ago, best as I can remember. lol In truth, I think the last time I ever exceeded one time a day was when I was about 14. Okay, maybe 34.

5-6 times is just too much but understandable for a guy your age. For tips to stop compulsive masturbation I would follow the advice of an old hand (get it) like DoubleM who fights the urge to masturbate furiously between serial marriages.

A reader, anonymous, writes (15 December 2009):

Allow yourself one morning session and one evening session. Stop watching porn. Try to keep yourself occupied with sport (start going to the gym), start a new hobby and every time you feel the urge to wank, get a picture of your grandmother into your head watching you. That should help make it go back to sleep. But seriously, you have way too much time on your hands; literally. Get busy doing stuff other boys your age do.

DoubleM agony auntWell, I don't recall ever doing it 5-6 times a day in my life (62 years), but a couple times daily on occasion, yes. But who is to say what is normal?

Once a week should prevent your testicles from swelling up and exploding. In the meantime, wear boxing gloves when indoors.

at your age 2/3 times a day should be sufficient with one full day a week without. Cut down on the porn too.

Yos agony auntOnce should be enough most of the time. It's possible to get an obsessive compulsive disorder focussed on masturbation, which can be very damaging.

If you really can't reduce the amount by yourself, you might need some counselling / therapy to help you. I recommend not ignoring this for too long as the longer the behaviour goes on the more the behaviour becomes habitual.

I recommend tracking down the UK documentary 'I can't stop masturbating' if you can find it online. It interviews men who have become compulsive masturbators: and shows how to overcome it.

Ask a doctor?

You know, it's unhealthy when ot becomes and obsession, an addiction. It sounds like its passed that with you, since you say you tried to stop but you can't. So you have become addicted. And the only thing to do then is stop complitely. What you do with your body should be something you choose to do out of the pleasure it gives you, not out of compulsive behaviour that you can not stop even when you try.

I wouldn't say 5-6 times a day is bad. Only if you get sore and it hurts etc. But being addicted to anything in general is bad. Being addicted you are no longer in control, no longer able to choose what you want to do. If you are absolutely unable to stop, and I mean stop completely until the addiction goes away, I would adive yuo to seek help. Go see your doctor.
