There may be a: Hormonal or psychological component for your situation. Doctors have seen this before so please go and you will get the help you need. Peace and good health. It is not from masturbation.

Prone masturbation: Frequent or exclusive male prone masturbation places significant pressure on penis & nerves at its base & may cause numbing to arousal / pleasure with other positions. Seek help from your dr. for delayed orgasms, erectile dysfunction or inability to achieve orgasm in other ways.
