Is Masturbation Addiction a real addiction?

Masturbation can be considered an addiction under certain circumstances. Some treatment programs and therapists note that using masturbation as a way to fall asleep or as a way to control anxiety can indicate an addiction.

However, moderate use of masturbation or other sexual activity for relaxation or stress relief cannot actually be called an addiction. To be an actual masturbation addiction, porn addiction or other sexual addiction, the sexual activities need to meet the following criteria:

  • The activity needs to be problematic when it creates a disruption to normal life.
  • If the behavior affects the ability to have normal sexual life with partner this could signal an addiction.
  • Constant thoughts & conversations about the activities can strongly indicate an addiction.

Some research studies revealed phenylethylamine(PEA) and stress related neurotransmitters are possible physical reasons for masturbation addiction.
