Query: Seeking insights from a sex therapist or psychologist for an article I’m writing: What do the things you think about while masturbating say about you to pitch, please comment at least 2 or 3 of the following typical thoughts during masturbation, from a clinical psychology perspective. What do they mean, and should we respond to them in any certain type of way? Also, if I’ve missed any common thoughts people have while masturbating, please include them in your response!

  1. Random stuff like work or your to-do list (in my opinion, this means meaning the person should slow down and be more mindful)
  2. Past sexual memories with people you’re not even into anymore but have a history with (makes sense, but if we are not really into them at the present, then why?)
  3. Exes, and all of their lingering emotional entanglements (we all have that one person, right? Does it mean we aren’t over them, or they’re just available “low hanging fruit” memories?)
  4. You watch porn, which basically erases thought (What is the psychology behind that? How can it be damaging?)
  5. Random fantasies that have no basis in reality (Which are the most common fantasies?)
  6. Intrusive thoughts or not sexy things that make you cringe or turn you off, making you say “dear god why did that just come to mind” (Why does this happen!?)

Requirements: Licensed sex therapist or psychologist
