Depends: If masturbation is creating stress in your life, altering your life, taking up a large part of your time and thoughts, causing you psychological or physical harm or embarrassment or if other issues, then you should seek help. Sexual addiction can be helped. See your pcp, a counsellor dealing with sexual issues or a pshychiatrist. You can begin by setting gentle limits and carrying limits out.

Find real love: All young men enjoy their bodies in this way and can't abstain totally. This doesn't make you an "addict", but if you are missing class / work or ignoring friendships and real-life romance that you want, get guidance. A tiny dose of a rx can end a compulsion, or reflect that those images of perfect bodies will only frustrate you long-term and are no replacement for someone who loves you.
