Question

Sir,

I thought masturbation was going to relieve me of my sex urges but it has increased them. I'm 15, what do I do? Thanks.


Answer

Your urges increase all the way until you are in your early twenties. People often make the false assumption that if to things happen near the same time that the one causes the other, but that is not necessarily true. Because you are now producing semen, you've started masturbating. The masturbation is not increasing the urges but allowing you to manage yourself while they are increasing.
