Patient :Hello there, I have a question regarding masturbation. I'm someone who is addicted to masturbation, but I haven't been masturbating for one week now. Because I read in some pages that masturbation decreases the number of dopamine receptors and that it changes the brain chemistry, which makes the person feel weak and depressed. Is this all true? Does it decrease the rate of dopamine receptors?
