Patient : I am not sure if this is a medical problem or psychological problem. I am a 26 year old mail. I masturbate almost every week, once or twice in a row (on the same instance). My problem is if I do not masturbate for a week or so, I sometime have insomnia. I am not thinking about masturbation particularly but I have noticed that I cannot sleep if unless I masturbate. I am concerned if this is normal or would I be considered addict? Also, will this have any side-effects? If I do not masturbate from insomnia, my main reason of masturbation is when I am physically tired, it helps relax my body. Your opinion will be great. Thanks!!
