According to Shannon Ethridge, anyone, no matter how smart, popular or religious can develop a sexual addiction. In her book Every Young Woman’s Battle Ethridge outlines six facts about women and masturbation:

1. Masturbation is a problem for both men and women.
2. If you are tempted to masturbate, it does not mean that you are a bad person, only that you are a human being with sexual desires and passions.
3. Masturbation can be habit-forming and addictive.
4. The momentary relief that self-gratification may provide is not worth the long-term stress it can create.
5. Masturbation does not satisfy sexual desires; it intensifies them.
6. You will not automatically stop masturbating once you get married.
