Hello I remember it was 6th grade so it was around 2005 I started masturbstion get. Then I started masturbating maybe once twice a week. I remember the feeling at the first time and then as It continued it became an addiction in its purest sense. Regret and repeat. Ten came high school, big dissapointment + bullies and I became anti social. Since finishing high school I have masturbated daily for 6-7 years to the present day. So I have pretty much masturbated almost daily for 10-12 years. That's about 4000 masturbations. In 2015 I was diagnosed with hashimoto thyroiditis. At the time I naively blamed it to my sedentary lifestyle, as I work from home on computers. I took some med for some time. In 2017 I meet a beautiful girl, the first girl in my life at 24-25. I was like crazy. I noticed I had difficulty ejaculating, years of hand action had ruined my senses. I needed more than 40 minutes of action to finally ejaculate. It was not a good sign, but I also was nervous. Then I did the worst thing I have ever done. Unprotected anal with her, more than a couple times. After 7-8 months, I made a test because I had pain in head of my penis and I found: enterococcus faecalis + mycoplsma Hominis which gave me prostatitis. Porn had corrupted my brain, into thinking I could have anal sex without protection(heck i didnt even like it compared to vaginal, but i still did it because porn fucked me up). Amongst the guilt feeling to having caused her and myself an infection, I learn that the infection cannot be cured. I have tried about 1.4 months of different antibiotics, cipro, avelox, augmentin. Only to make things worse. It has ruined my life. 1. Masturbation is a slow death. It depletes the body from vital nutrients, google what sperm/semen contain and see for yourself. It destroys your immunity day by day. It's like cutting forest at a higher pace than its able to generate. 2. Porn ruins your mind, creates dirty thoughts, perverse thoughts, I was ready to lick her ass, she stopped me. I wanted to make a threesome with her, again what was j thinking? 3. Hashimoto thyroiditis is a terrible autoimune disease, very rare in males and they say its rarer in males because testosterone has a protective function or the thyroid. Get the connection? Masturbation > constantly low testosterone > Autoimune disease. Also depleting your body from vital nutrients, like zinc, selenium etc, ruins your gut, and the gut compromises about 80% of the imune system, all the diseases start from the gut, a corrupt gut will ruin your health. Also because of this I believe I needed to remove my appendix in 2009 (corrupt gut) 4. Prostatitis is also a terrible disease as It's not curable and very painful. It compromised my sperm and I won't be able to have children because of the infections. Search infertility bacteria on Google. I have all sorts of symptoms, balls are shrinking, painful ejaculations, clogged sperm, reduced sperm, heat sensation and dull pain in testicle and balls and what not. This is what porn has done to me, and other people around me. I hate my self every day. If I was to return back time. I would have never masturbated, not a single day. I'm 26 now and I feel like 80. With 2 terrible unreversible diseases and it's only the start. I have started thinking about suicide. This is my story. Please if you read, try to reply with your experience, or opinion about what I said. I may be too deeply depressed to see everything so dark.
