I always become erect whenever I see sexy pictures or someone talking about sex and

I masturbate. Is this normal?

Dr Eve responds:

The purpose of sexy pictures, sexy writing or 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. I encourage you to also socialise and engage consensually with real people.
