I cannot sleep without masturbating. What should I do?

Sexual Health Physician & Medical Sex Therapist Dr Vijaysarathi Ramanthan answers this query.

Every night, before going to sleep, I need to masturbate or I can t sleep. Also, I am not happy with the sixe of my penis and tend to ejaculate even after someone touches it. What do I do? Also, I wanted to know if masturbating will affect my chances of becoming a father? Please let me know.

Answered by Sexual Health Physician & Medical Sex Therapist Dr Vijaysarathi Ramanthan

It is true that the chemicals released during masturbation (or any sexual activity) could make you relax. But, you have programmed your brain in a such a way that you can only sleep after masturbating and now you are feeling that you can t sleep without doing it. However this is NOT a serious problem as there are ways to revert brain programming (behaviour re-modification) by scientific methods. Also, please don t jump to conclusions about your penis size without knowing what the average penis size is for Indians.
