Could someone clarify masturbation to me?

Okay, I'm just a little confused with what masturbation actually is. Is it even small things like stroking or touching, or is it only masturbation when you climax? I just woul really like this to be clarified, and I'm sure many other people would too. And another thing as well, I'm not gay at all, but I used to watch gay porn, I don't know why, but the memories of those things are stuck in my head, is there any way to get rid of those memories or make it harder to remember them, it's been about 6 months since I've been addicted to them.


Your situation is more similar to mine than you know    
"I saw your other blog and you never replie to anyone, so hopefully you will here. First off are you still using porn? That's all porn not just gay porn.

I'm assuming your a guy, but your thinking wrong. It's not about how far you can go without climaxing because you will always end up masturbating. I think you should focus on how often you masturbate. So how often per week do you mast.?

and like I said I have a similar story as you so I'll give you my email if you want to talk about that it's: moronidenovo @"

"I view it this way. Accidentally touching and accidentally arousing yourself isn't - but if after you are you keep going then it is. The for strength of youth says do not arouse those emotions in yourself or others, but I would add on purpose. My opinion is that it is intent, not whether you climax or not. However, for a long time I felt differently. I figured that even if I went as far as I could go that it wasn't until I climaxed. My Bishop corrected me on that one when I made some comment.
I'm a girl,so it is different.But essentially intent is key.

As far as how long it takes? In a sense it never goes away. The brain is like that. I have things from several years ago that I can remember perfectly that I wish I didn't. It does fade with time though."

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
