I always become aroused

whenever I see sex pictures

or when I hear someone talking

about sex. This makes me to

masturbate. Is that normal?

Dr Eve answers:

The purpose of sex pictures,

sexy writing, pornography,

is to arouse you. Every

person is aroused by different

sexy pictures. I’m sure you know

what images turn you on the

most. And it feels wonderful.

When you see these pictures

your body feels aroused and

responds with an erection.

Once you have an erection you

feel even more excited. And this

leads you to masturbate.

You sound like a sexually

healthy person. I encourage you

to also socialise and engage

consensually with real people.
