I use masterbation to get sexual as well as emotional fulfillment. Do you use masterbation for the same purpose? Is it different , in terms of purpose, from males and females?

Hey. I know I'm posting on all the sexual threads. So, I'm a sexual person. So shoot me!

When I was in therapy years ago, I came to the stunning realization that I was masturbating out of anger or shame a lot of times to punish myself if I felt I did something wrong. It was a way of continuing to abuse myself when I thought I deserved it. This was a shocking realization for me.

My therapist (who is a nun, ain't that a kicker!??) suggested that I learn to appreciate my body, in all its glorious imperfection, and focus on knowing when I was masturbating in an attempt to punish myself.

I still struggle with poor body image, but have learned to concentrate on meeting more of my emotional needs when I masturbate. It is much more satisfying when I give myself foreplay instead of just going to town, and stay focused on using masturbation as a way to love myself both emotionally and physically.

Ple-Ese...give me a break.

The nun said you were punishing yourself? that's a hoot

I was brought up Catholic btw.

I'm still laughing.....of course she is going to be against it

They all are against sex

But just look at the mess they are in

I should not post mid-migraine. I'm not doing it well.

The nun didn't tell me I was punishing myself. I told her in a session that I was very angry with myself over something, and realized it when I was masturbating. The way I was thinking, how I was treating myself, it felt abusive. When I disclosed this, then she suggested that I work ascertaining my feelings before I did anything sexual because it was a way for me to act out against myself.

I'm looking at this and thinking I probably didn't make anything clearer... Oh well.

It's just a release. Physical and emotional, I think. Feels good to know that I don't NEED another person (at least literally) to bring about pleasure. Feels good to know that there's one thing that I can do for myself that is...well...quite satisfying every single time!

I equate that to traveling alone, which I also enjoy. I can do what I want, when I want and spend as much or as little as I want...A real vacation to me! I'm not bound by the limits of time, space or other people.

Any feedback on that?

Thanks Arwen for the revelation. Now I could understand why I used to masterbate so hard whenever my dad used to beat me when I was a teenager. It was a a sign of defiance and anger.

I masterbate now to get all the love and affection that I can not get in real life. How sad!!!!
