The Brain Science Behind Mastubation

The brain science behind masturbation

There are a lot of different opinions out there regarding masturbation. Struggling individuals and mental health professionals rarely stop to consider the brain science behind masturbation–why it’s so powerful, addictive, and difficult to stop.

Masturbation triggers the brain into releasing a tidal wave of neurochemicals including endorphins, dopamine, serotonin and more. These natural “drugs” can provide temporary relief from negative emotions, feelings of stress, insomnia and other struggles. Masturbation quickly becomes a “drug-of-choice” for self-medication and escape.

Stop Fighting the Urge

Stop fighting the urge–It’s not about trying harder

When trying to overcome masturbation addiction, a common strategy people use is sheer willpower–”When the urge hits me, I just need to fight harder and refuse to give in!” Others believe avoidance is the answer–”I just won’t think about it. I’ll force the temptation out of my mind.”

Of course, both of these strategies only provide temporary relief, or immediately fail altogether. Fearing, fighting or avoiding the urge to masturbate is not the answer. These strategies only plunge the individual into a deeper and more intense addiction struggle to stop masturbating.

The key lies in working with your brain’s natural tendencies, not fighting against them. Candeo will show you how to harness the Brain Science of Change to break out of the Masturbation Avoidance Cycle that has you trapped. Read more ››

Masturbation can lead to impotence

Masturbation can lead to impotence

There’s a popular notion that masturbation coupled with sexual fantasy is a harmless pastime, or even a healthy outlet. Unfortunately, many men (and women) around the world have discovered these claims to be seriously flawed.

Over time, the brain learns to prefer the unlimited variety, exaggeration, and instant accessibility of sexual fantasy and masturbation to real sexual intimacy with one partner. In fact, the brain’s “arousal circuitry” can become so completely wired for self-sex, that performance with a partner is increasingly difficult and eventually impossible. Masturbation can definitely lead to impotence in men and women.

Candeo helps individuals literally “rewire” the brain’s sexual arousal circuitry so they can return to healthy sexual intimacy with a partner. Read more ››
