This article discusses women who have sexual compulsivity, a disorder that is intensely shame-based and difficult to treat. The case studies presented show the family preconditioning of abandonment in childhood through inadequate care, abuse, neglect, and the presence of other addictions. As children, these women searched for something to soothe their distress when they could not rely on their caregivers. Maladaptive coping mechanisms, such as masturbation, food, romantic or violent fantasies, and any behavior to would gain attention, maintained their sanity in childhood. However, these behaviors also advanced to autonomy, eliminating the option of choices.
Compulsive Masturbation: The Secret Sexual Disorder
Masturbation side effects: Myths and facts
Masturbation is a normal and healthy sexual activity with few side effects. Many bizarre claims surround masturbation, such as going blind, and most of these claims are untrue. Masturbation is when an individual stimulates their genitals for sexual pleasure, which may or may not lead to orgasm. Masturbation is common among men and women of all ages and plays a role in healthy sexual development. Research has found that among adolescents aged 14—17 years in the United States, around 74 percent of males and 48 percent of females masturbate. Among older adults, roughly 63 percent of men and 32 percent of women between 57 and 64 years of age masturbate. People masturbate for many reasons.
Female sexual compulsivity: a new syndrome
Of all the types of sexual acting out, compulsive masturbation, with or without pornography, is the most secretive and isolatingand also the most common in both men and women. Because many individuals view sexual self-stimulation as shameful, dirty, or sinful, those who engage in the practice compulsively are unlikely to discuss it with others, even a therapist. Instead, that individual is far more likely to report anxiety, depression, feelings of loneliness and isolation, and the inability or lack of desire to form intimate relationships with other people. Some people who masturbate compulsively do so as part of their daily routine.
