Masturbating 4X/day: This is not normal to spend so much time each day masturbating so often. Talk to your doctor to see if you do not have an obsessive disorder that is causing you to behave in this manner. Treatment can be of great benefit to you.

Too much: Sounds like you may need some help...Speak with your doctor.

Not normal: Are trying for the guiness book of records? Perhaps ok on week-ends when its raining and you have nothing better to do. My suggestion is to reduce the frequency to a couple of times an evening, unless the whole thing only lasts a couple of minutes or less. You might like to consult with a psychologist or a psychiatrist if you are really masturbation addicted.

Sad road ahead: No this is not normal but may be convenient. If you continue down this road you may lose the ability to ever participate in real partner sex without years of therapy (if then). It may be convenient and fill some void in your life but is an addiction like any other. You can go to your grave with this as your life or find some help & find out why you are drawn to this pattern.

A 21-year-old member asked:

How can I communicate to my partner that sex doesnt interest me?

Openly and honestly: Sex is the ultimate in intimacy for both partners. What one does affects the other. Each must know the other emotionally, physically, mentally, and intimately. Tell the partner you have issues with desire and see if there are things that can be better to re-interest you in sex. There may be medical issues. Get a good check up and needed testing. Counselling may be needed. Good luck!

A 36-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have an aa sponsor of the opposite sex?

Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky
Pediatrics 35 years experience
It's irrelevant;: Whether your sponsor is the same or opposite sex, or if the sponsor's sex changes halfway through your recovery, makes zero difference. You both have the same relationship with alcohol - you've both had enough. That's all that matters.

A 54-year-old member asked:

Does playful sex work better in the beginning of relationships or later on?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Samuel Miles
Psychiatry 47 years experience
It depends: If you and your partner are both in a playful mood, sex can be very playful. Early in a relationship when responsibilities have not built up opportunities for play may be more plentiful. But maintaining a capacity for play is a valuable trait in many happy relationships.
A 26-year-old male asked:

Why is sex feel so good.?

Dr. Steven Reidbord
Psychiatry 36 years experience
To make babies!: "why" questions are hard to answer in the natural sciences, as they imply there's a purpose or intent. Biology usually relies on evolution principles to answer "why" questions. In this case, the good feelings from sex motivate the behavior, resulting in propagation of the species. If you seek a neurological explanation (how not why), perhaps a neurologist can answer.
