6 Things to Avoid if You Are Addicted to Masturbation 

Masturbation is explained as the manual erotic stimulation of the genitals or other erotic regions, often to orgasm, either by oneself or a partner. In other words, masturbation is when you use your hands to jerk your gbola until you cum or when you use your fingers and objects (cucumber, banana, dildo, etc.) to reach orgasm.

Masturbation is a chronic addiction that can be difficult to quit at times. The consequences of masturbation can’t be overemphasized. If you think you are battling with masturbation, here are six things you should stay away from to avoid making things more complicated than they are for you.


1. Long-Distance Relationship.

A man or woman battling with masturbation must avoid long-distance relationships.

Perhaps people in long-distance relationships are prone to masturbation due to the absence of their partner. If you are addicted to masturbation and are still trying to overcome it, please avoid long-distance relationships.
