Few days ago i got an email from someone who told me that he feels so guilty when he masturbates and that he wants to know the psychological explanation behind it. In order for me to explain that i have to first go through the psychology of guilt quickly. In my previous article about Dealing with guilt and shame i explained how your mind uses guilt to motivate you to stick to your core values. If you violated your values in a way or another your mind sends you guilt in order to motivate you to avoid doing that thing again, See the power of negative motivation. Now as you might have already guessed your beliefs about masturbation determine to a great extent the amount of guilt you feel when you do it.

Why do I feel guilty after masturbating?
I stopped the pornography stuff. I don't use the Internet for that anymore. I always think about something else, and I escape from it. The problem is: When I masturbate, I feel guilty. I did it yesterday, and I didn't think about women or anything, I just did it. I thought a lot about why I feel guilty, and it's because I think that if my parents asked me if I had masturbated in the past, I would have to say the truth. And it would hurt them because they believe it's wrong.
The Boys' Growing Up in the Lord
I have been masterbating for a very long time, i do it evry other day. I was getting really worried because I thought I was the only one in the world who did it. After i do it i get a huge feeling of guilt and shame but it dosn't stop me doing it again. I question myself if im normal and make myself upset about it, i carn't talk about it to anyone because its a very persanol, embarrasing topic. I have developed a slight sense of uncomfortableness around family members, and am having the odd awful nightmare about certain relitives having gay sex.
