I'm excited that this thread got so big. As an 18 year old male, this is an issue for me, and this quote I think sums it up. The question we have to ask ourselves as aware human beings is, should we be addicted to it or not??
Whenever we say "addiction" everyone shutters, but in reality, I don't think being addicted to masturbating or sex is that bad of a thing. A man who masturbates once a day is shunned by society, but a man who has sex once a day is a pimp, player, mack, exc... Physically speaking, and putting all of the ego boosts from real sex aside, it is the same thing.
Based on personal experience, I'm not sure how sexual energy works. I don't think it's as simple as, you release -> you lose energy. I think I said this in another thread, but people who are highly sexed, and those who abstain from sex both seem to have more of an energy boost that regular people.
Who knows?? Hopefully someday we'll figure it out, but in the meantime, I'm gonna go meet some beautiful babies.
