(NSFW) What is masturbation to you?

Asked by XOIIO (16865 points ) February 26th, 2014

So, an obviously NSFW question, something I figured I’m ask you all, men or women it doesn’t matter. (I was originally going to use a fake account to ask this, but what’s the point in it?)

What is masturbation to you? Why do you do it? I ask because for me it’s probably a bit different to what everyone else does.

For me, it’s basically just maintenance. Sure, it physically feels good for a bit, but the way I see it is just maintenance to help keep a clear head. Get it over with, and that’s it. I’ve found that if I don’t have a “release” from time to time those more primitive urges gain a bit of a foothold in my mind, and can get quite annoying. I don’t see it as “practice” for anything as I figure some might, my first and last sexual encounter was almost four years ago, I have had nothing happen since, and probably won’t have anything for a long time, if ever, so this is basically just a release so that I can keep my mind clear and focus on other things.

What does it mean for you guys (or girls). I imagine women are not as likely to have a somewhat… er, “practical” view to it.

It’s a quick remedy for sleeplessness.

@Seek_Kolinahr Ah yes that’s another use I forgot. Doesn’t always work though but it can.

Masturbation is a healthy response to sexual desire. However, like any actions the produces pleasure it can be done to excess. It is common for lovers to masturbate each other. Some adolescents learn to use solitary masturbation to reduce anxiety. Because of fantasies that accompany the act it can lead to unrealistic expectations of sex with a partner.

Masturbation kills millions of sperm.
It is mass murder and worse than abortion.
Masturbation should be illegal.

As Woody Allen says, “Don’t knock masturbation — it’s sex with someone I love.”

This showerhead comes highly recommended by my friend who operates a sex shop. (this is the lowest price I could find)

To me, it’s more than maintenance. Certainly, sometimes I do it because I’m horny 24/7 and practically every guy I see is turning me on, but I do enjoy it and sometimes I make it last longer on purpose. That said, I don’t do it as often as I used to when I was younger (and part of that is knowing that I find it more enjoyable if I don’t do it as often).

When the wife ain’t in the mood for sex & I mischievously persevere, she may tell me to “go fuck myself!”
I do as i’m told & have a wank, i’m a good boy I am.

Suddenly starting testosterone therapy at the age of 44 gave me an insight into why teenage boys just can’t leave it alone. Its an urge that cannot be resisted.

I masturbate because I enjoy an orgasm and if my boyfriend’s not around to help me then I have no problem helping myself. That’s really all there is to it.

@Seek_Kolinahr I had one of those in my old house. Must have multiple water features.
Indoor jets outdoor jets. haha

It’s a physical response…kind of like sneezing, but not as publicly acceptable.
