DEAR DEIDRE: I’M ashamed to admit that I need to masturbate three times a day to get to sleep.

I’m 69. My wife died four years ago. Since then I’ve rediscovered the pleasure of masturbation. It’s like I’ve become a teenager again.

I started doing it once a week but I do it at least three times a day now.

As much as I enjoy my secret pastime, I can’t help but feel guilty.

I’m getting on a bit and I’m meant to be a pillar of the community.

I sing in the church choir and am a governor at my grand-children’s school. I can’t be acting like this.

Besides, there must be health risks of masturbating so often at my age.

I’ve tried to give up the habit but I can’t fall asleep unless I give in to the temptation of self-pleasure.
