Masturbation/Does living alone increase masturbation guilt?


Is it true that people who live alone and feel alone tend to have increased guilt about masturbation versus those who don't live alone and don't feel alone?

They might, but I don't think it's because they live alone.  If they live alone, then they're single (probably) and they have the same feelings about masturbation that many single people have.  Most people are more guilty that they're not coupled and/or reproducing than they are about the masturbation itself.

Feel free to ask me more questions!

I write from the point of view that masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary to sexual health. I am able to answer questions in all areas of sexuality.


I am the author of the web site and have been answering questions about sexuality (especially masturbation) from both males and females for over 13 years.

I have a Ph.D. in a field unrelated to sexuality from one of the leading educational institutions in the world.
