First off, thank you so much for your quick reply on my other question, and thank you so much for your advice. Sorry to ask again so soon, but as I mentioned in my other post, I can't really masturbate, as it is uncomfortable and will probably only make things worse. But I am also a very horny 17 year old. It is getting to the point where it is only adding strain to my everyday life, causing me stress, frustration, and irritability. I am sorry to sound overdramatic, but I literally feel like I am being driven insane. Any tips on how to deal with this, without having to reach orgasm? Because in my current condition, that is not an option.

There's really nothing a person can to to control their *feelings.* And feelings of sexual desire and just like feelings of happiness or anger: they're things that simply happen, not really things we can make happen or keep from happening.

But like other kinds of feelings, we can choose to hold on tight to them or just let them float in and out. We can also do things with them to express them or kind of give them a place/way to feel expressed.

Obviously engaging in sex of some kind, alone or with a partner is one way to do that. But often, just doing things where we're actively in our bodies, or exploring pleasure more generally can be ways to kind of let those feelings out, too, or let them come and pass away more easily.

Thank you again for replying so quickly, but I am not sure you understood what I meant...? XD I never thanked you properly, but I was the one that asked you about clitoral damage. I have scheduled a doctors appointment soon, and I would totally love to do what you are suggesting, but I can't. I actually would have asked you about this on that other topic, but didn't know I could reply to you until now XD I am not that good with computers, so it took me a while to figure out. But thanks again for your time [Smile]

If you don't think I understood, perhaps you can try wording your question differently?

(And you're welcome!)

*laughs* maybe you do understand what I mean, but I am just being too pigheaded to see it. I will think more about what you said before trying to re-word my question [Smile]
