I am unable to concentrate due to masturbation, what do I do?
Q: I am a 26 years old engineer preparing for my MBA entrance exams at home. I cannot control myself from masturbating 2-3 times a day. Because of this I am finding it difficult to pay 100% attention to studies. Whenever I start studying, sexual thoughts and masturbation keep coming to my mind. My hands automatically start arousing my genitals leading to erection and forcing me to masturbate. What should I do to control my thoughts and concentrate more on studies?
A:Masturbation is not a problem. It is normal and common. It is not causing any harm to you. Don't try to leave/resist it. More you try to leave it, more it will bother you. Sense of guilt or shame associated with masturbation is more harmful. Accept it as normal and natural. You are resisting the ‘nature’. Don't fight with the mighty and powerful nature. Give yourself the freedom to express your sexuality either through masturbation or by having a relationship with some eligible partner. Fighting with ‘nature’ will only make it worse.
