So I've been batting around the idea of giving up masturbation for a long time now and I was wondering if anyone else has done it or is trying to do it? I've been masturbating since I was 12 and I'm pretty much a 1-2 time a day guy. I guess that is a lot, I'm not really sure, but most of the time I jack off before I go to bed because it helps me get to sleep. But I have this condition, I think maybe my urethra is irritated or something (just a guess) but 90% of the time after I ejaculate I'll eventually have to go to the bathroom REALLY REALLY badly even if my bladder is empty. So its kind of a bother. On top of that there is the dependence I have on masturbation to get to sleep (not that I absolutely have to do it but it certainly helps) plus its so damn messy. I guess if I had a girlfriend I wouldn't have to masturbate but despite being very good looking and being hung I have absolutely no game whatsoever and in general consider dating to be a bother. The longest I've ever been without masturbating was 6 weeks in basic training for the military because quite simply you just couldn't masturbate, let alone get morning wood or take a shit because you are so stressed out and tense. I remember after all that when I finally could jerk off it was nice, but it was no better than any other time I masturbated. I guess what I'm saying is anymore, what's the point of masturbation? How do the rest of you all feel on this subject? What advice do you have or do you think I'm just nuts?
