Hello !

I have a question regarding my masturbation habits. I am recently grown concerned over it as I have read a few articles on the internet mentioning its detriments when it comes to overuse. I am also worried about masturbation and/or pornography addiction and I would be very grateful if you could give me some expert feedback on my habits and let me know if I am healthy or if I am going towards addiction.

I apologize in advance for the long detailed text, but I would like to ensure I fully describe what goes on in my head.

I am a 21 year old male and have been masturbating since age 11. Since then I have been pretty much masturbating every day and my habits haven't changed much. I usually do it once or twice a day, but it also depends on my timetable - if I am at home and bored I can do it up to ten times a day but I can also skip it for a couple of days if I am busy or sick. I never went without for longer than a week.
When alone at home and with nothing substantial to do, I feel the desire to masturbate almost every hour - the 'rest' period between my sessions are often quite short. I generally have a ''half'' erection which I turn into a full one after a bit of stimulation. However I rarely get aroused when busy, even when dancing sensually in sensual classes with women which is the closest potential to arousal in my daily life. Nonetheless, masturbating keeps the unwanted erections at bay and I know I would get one in such situation after even 2 days without masturbating.
Since I have my own PC and Wifi I watch porn most of the time to enhance the stimulation. However, over the years, my porn hasn't gone more ''extreme'' as one would expect, but I rather find myself browsing more and more softcore/erotic videos that put emotions of pleasure forward. I find myself using my imagination a lot to ''complement'' the porn. I have grown tired of simply masturbating to exposed body parts and like to indulge in ''forbidden fantasies'' more often.
While I assume this is not a negative sign, I do spend a lot of time browsing for and gathering ''suitable'' content - sometimes as long as 30 minutes. This leads to me sometimes wasting literal hours on explicit content.
What worries me most is my difficulty in stopping my mental arousal. I do feel that whenever there isn't something on my mind, desire for sexual intimacy (and a romantic relationship, but that's another topic) settles in. This almost always leads to masturbation and I feel I cannot really stop myself from doing it. I do not know whether I have a strong libido or whether I have fallen into some form of addiction. I sometimes feel winded and unable to focus properly after several sessions, and sometimes end up having headaches. These only happen after masturbating 5-7 times within a few hours though. Despite these symptoms, the mental desire remains.

Thank you for reading. Please let me know what you think. If you have any questions please fire away !
