Our expert says:
Well it sounds like you have a lot to deal with at such a young age - your sexual prime... There are several ways of managing this. Firstly, I am not sure what help you went for, but if you haven't tried going to counselling (e.g. FAMSA, private sex therapist)to see how to make the most out of your marital relationship, then try that. SEcondly, check that what you are feeling 'most' of the time really is desire. Sometimes men masturbate compulsively and not necessarily because they are experiencing libido but because they experience something else (boredom, irritation, anger, depression, tiredness) and masturbate to sooth/calm themselves. Furthermore, this may be that you are simply 'triggered' or aroused very easily, so if you try to avoid situations where you are likely to be 'triggered', you should have less arousal to contend with. Thirdly, you don't 'have' to help yourself all the time. Your wife might participate from time to time, and at other times you could simply focus your attention elsewhere and try to ignore it....it may be difficult and frustrating, but it is possible. Finally, if all else fails, then perhaps you do need to speak to your GP and see if he/she would be prepared to prescribe a drug with a known side effect of reducting libido. This is far from ideal but worth exploring.
