I am a guy, and when i masturbate, after i ejaculate, i pretty much lose all sense of being aroused, and i lose interest in masturbating. Is this behavior normal or am i doing something wrong?

This is entirely normal. In fact, you're going to find very few guys out there that can go more than one round simultaneously, if you know what I mean.

After ejaculation/orgasm, men go through what is called a refractory period, where arousal/erection is difficult to maintain if it can be maintained at all. This can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours, but it happens to all guys.

So, nothing is wrong with you, nor are you doing anything wrong.

Just thought that I would add that I am a female and I am the same way. Definitely normal.
