Our expert says:
There is nothing wrong with masturbating or seeing a prostitute to fulfill your sexual desires as long as no one gets hurt and your sexual activity is safe. However, visiting prostitutes is not a substitute for a loving relationship. Many human needs are satisfied in an intimate relationship--needs for approval and affirmation, for companionship, for meaningful ties to community, for a partner with whom to face life's challenges. Truly satisfying relationships go well beyond sexual behavior.
Many times, lasting relationships develop from friendships. Why not try spending some time alone with one or two of your female friends? How about getting involved in some of the activities such as "Fast dating"
Back to masturbation and visiting prostitutes, if you are feeling guilty about it, don't go. Or go, and understand the benefits and limitations of these visits--don't expect more than fulfilling your physical desires. Don't despair, however--there IS the right woman out there for you. But it is a process of trial and error--you have to start dating and meeting people so that you can have a choice and learn to discover the qualities you are looking for in a girlfriend or long-lasting partner.
