I have read where that could be a form of PTSD and that its done as a triggering or coping mechanism because of what you have been through.

I have never used masturbation as a form of self-harm, but it does sound a lot like using sex as self-harm which I have done.

Using sex as self-harm was a way of making me feel worthless also. I think they are in very similar veins, so I would definitely say this is not totally abnormal.

I know this is a bit late but I don't think it is odd. I have not suffered from any sexual trauma (that I have remembered, at least) but I suffer from depression and I use masturbation as a way to make myself feel more worthless sometimes. Depending on my mood, masturbation can make me feel better or sometimes more empty. So during times that I know masturbation will make me feel more empty and I feel absolutely horrible, I will do it to make myself feel worse.

I don't even know anymore.
