Your ignorance is impeccable. Cite the study or studies that unequivocally proves other animals lack conscious introspection. Besides that, you clearly couldn't connect the dots. I don't quite know how else to explain it though. Masturbation is clearly a biological function, as is eating. You can voluntarily stop eating, but you'll die as Gandhi almost did. You can voluntarily stop masturbating, but will it serve any purpose? NoFap claims it not only doesn't serve a purpose, but is healthy not to. Which implies there is not only no healthful gain to masturbating, but actually a detraction to your health for doing so. I would like to see a study that shows this as well, that would be a sight for sore eyes. The reason NoFap has succeeded with convincing an ignorant minority with its claims of addiction being as little as once a month (if I recall the claim correctly) is simply due to this kind of inaccurate understanding of what addiction really is. They have managed to convince people that a single instance of a biological function is addiction, quite a comedic tale in my opinion.
