Will removing clitoris help to reduce compulsive and excessive masturbation ?

I am a 54 yo female. I have a problem with compulsive & excessive masturbation. I skip meals and don t leave my apartment unless something importment happens. This has been going on for 9 months. I was wondering if I had my clitoris removed. Would that solve my problem?

hello Ms Anon,
can you tell me if the masturbatory activity is to exclusion of other sexual behavior. do you masturbate for pleasure ;or do you feel edgy and nervous ,and are unable to resist masturbating .

Hi
This isnt an option.Sexual urges is a complex emotion combining hormonal and psychological elements.You could try counselling with a sex therapist to understand and deal with the problem.

I am 25 years old man I have been suffering with sexual weakness and erectile dysfunction for almost 2 years , in the beginning it was just about seminal emission after urination. But now I feel severe pain in my stomach during and after erection, I also feel pain in the areas surrounding my genitals organs and premium during erection and after ejaculation … I don’t ejaculate too much and it takes me days or week to recover from the weakness caused by the ejaculation. In the past I used to masturbate a lot, but I have almost stopped it now and mostly do it once a week but I feel extremely weak after ejaculation as I mentioned earlier and it takes me week to recover. I have been to different doctors who have run tests on me and they say that I have no infection of any kind and it’s just weakness. My hairs have got thinner due to this condition and my whole facial look has changed as I am aging prematurely. Can you tell me what’s wrong with me ?? Please help me I am in great deal of trouble
