Medieval era... very strict moral rules...masturbation was considered a sin happy times? well, ya...if you don't mind the whole crusades thing, massive death, torture, etc. modern time rampant masturbation population explosion...tolerance...medical breakthroughs...fantastic standard of living for 2/3rds the world population comparatively. so...this evil thing..what exactly is evil about it? btw, I never have orgasms without love...if I didn't love it, I wouldn't do it
Ok. I agree with you except on the part ''fantastic standard of living in 2/3 of the world''. You must be really out of your mind to say something like that. It is rather 1/3 and less. Really get your numbers straight.

Now you give it TIME. And refocus your energy to other "higher things" such as your work, hobbies, friendships, exercise, etc. Over the course, your energy dedicated to the drug impulse slowly transmutes into the love of self improvement and the love of others (social and familial relationships). You learn to ignore (and finally dispel) the old whispers of constantly needing drugs...
You can separate yourself from your sexual wants by knowing the reality other than the physical. The easiest way to do this is by transmuting sexual energy. If you are governed by your sexual yearnings at present, this may seem stupid and impossible. After reading some of the responses here this is evident.
And as for nocturnal emissions, your body is trying to remove old sperm for the new. Otherwise it is absorbed into the body. Your body and mind are 2 different things and realities. Separation can occur with dedication and practice.
If you are willing to try and have some patience-- it is definitely worth it.
Make fun and jest all you want naysayers, you'll never know the pleasure of sex with love and one-ness through orgasm.
P.S. Drugs was the easiest example to use here. I know they aren't the same. But intrinsically they share similar struggles.edit on 24-4-2011 by donatellanator because: extra DIV
