Masturbation normally floods the brain with dopamine as it will happen with sex, food or drugs thereby flooding the brain "during addictive behavior". Frequent masturbation *could*, in theory, make your brain less sensitive to dopamine. Note, this happens only when you are addicted.

Alternatively, you can also eat food which might increase such activity. There are so many drugs to do this also. But before that consult a doctor.

Get well soon,
