NSFW: When did you first start masturbating?

Asked by jackm (6188 points ) March 2nd, 2010

And how did you start? Did you stumble upon the joy of self pleasure, were you taught, or did you learn by some other means?

Me? I stumbled on it in the shower while washing my body. Took me a few months to understand what was actually going on. Haven’t looked back since.

@jbfletcherfan Before I asked I searched and didn’t find he question had been asked before.

Maybe he’s hoping to read stories from people that began less than a few months ago? Hah me funny.

Seriously, I was 11. Same year I hit puberty. I learned about it by reading one of those erotic fiction magazines…Penthouse Letters or whatever.

6. At least that is the earliest I can remember.

I was 14, I remember that. This was after I had my first sexual dream (I was quite the late bloomer, remember). Anyway, this is going to sound a little pervy, but I had almost seen this super cute guy at my school naked in the locker room and I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. I noticed that whenever I thought about it, I became aroused. Now, I knew what masturbation was at that age, I was just a little afraid to try it, but soon enough, I was. But I had never done it before and I was so freaked out by what might happen that I kept stopping and everything…lol. My first time was a little half-assed, but soon after that I became used to it.

10, stumbled upon after a shower drying off with a towel and the towel rubbed across my genitals. I was thinking, “wow, that felt good” then proceeded to purposely rub it against the towel, my blankets, bottom of the bath tub, etc…then I found lotion, a year or two later….lol. TMI?

Senior year of high school. I didn’t realize that girls did it too, so the thought had never crossed my mind. I had my first boyfriend the summer before, and that was my sexual awakening.

After we split up I became aware of my own sexual arousal for the first time, and I talked to a friend about it. She was shocked that I had never experimented, and taught me the bathtub trick. Aren’t friends great?

Thinking about this brought back memories of being fearful of giving myself AIDS from masturbating. How fucked up is that? if I ever have kids they’re getting “the Talk” as soon as they hit puberty.

Hahaha! I remember pledging (to myself) on my 13th birthday that I’d quit.

I can quit anytime I want.

I was around 6 or 7 – I found that rubbing pillows between my legs felt good…same with my cat…I kid you not, that poor animal…when I was around 9 or 10 I discovered that I can orgasm from the strong water current in the shower…

ChaosCross's avatar

About 12, rubbed some important parts against the pillow I slept with…

So…soft…

@judochop Did it twice, huh? :D

I was 10.. I had a cute neighbor upstairs and he and I somehow got into these “games” that pretty much revolved around us dry humping. So, I figured out that that felt good and moved to stuffed animals, then a crumpled up blanket.

I really don’t remember. Can masturbation lead to memory loss?

gememers's avatar

nine, I think

I was 13. I had to sleep on the cot on a soft sleeping bag that night because the guest was using my room. I was lying on my stomach, and the movement against my penis felt good, so I kept on doing it. I was totally shocked when I came! I didn’t know what was happening. I thought something had forced me to pee or something. But that didn’t bother me. I wanted to do it some more. And more.

Another funny thing. It took maybe two more years before I was sure that what I was doing was masturbating. I’d read about it, but the explanations were not clear enough so I could be sure. Eventually I asked a couple of friends if what I was doing was masturbating and they assured me it was. Phew!

21. No joke.

I always knew about it but just never bothered to actually do it…

Bagardbilla's avatar

@jackm it took you 5008 lurves to ask a question that lives up to your name!? :)

I’d say I was about 9 or 10, learned it fr an older friend…
“hey, go home and try doing this”
“ok”?

wtfrickinfrack's avatar

I was 11. I overheard my parents talking about a neighbor that had recently died of complications from vaginal cancer – so that night I checked myself for lumps in a panic…..and I found one… a very ticklish one ;)

ranwulf's avatar

The question isn’t when I started, but have I ever stopped :D

forestGeek's avatar

The best I can remember is that it was probably around 11–12.

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

I guess I was around 12 and discovered it felt good to lie on my back in bed and rub the head of my cock against the top sheet. I found out how messy an orgasm can be without sufficient planning! I quickly learned about friction burns due to low thread count muslin sheets!

Violet's avatar

Maybe around 8 or 9, I had this back massager

Sophief's avatar

I think I was around 7. I had a big teddy bear and I pretended he was Superman and I used to rub myself up and down and it’s leg!

ratboy's avatar

About twelve minutes ago. I must sign out now and grab a tissue.

I think I was about 12 years old when I first realised that I could make myself orgasm. I remember as a kid that I would rub against the bed sometimes and one day I orgasmed. It had always felt good which is why I did it but I had never experienced that feeling before that moment. It took me a long time to make myself orgasm with my fingers though, I think I was about 15 years old when that finally happened.

Edit: Having read the rest of this thread I am amazed at how similar other peoples experiences were to mine. This is the first time that I have admitted how I first orgasmed because I always thought it was a bit weird!

@lostinyoureyes Yikes, I’m sorry…or maybe I should ask, were you sorry you waited?

Me, I was like the author, I discovered it in the shower at around 15 years old…I was late to mature (apparently like @DominicX), so I was still about 5’ 4” tall, etc. My mom & dad had one of those Waterpick showerheads, that had the hand held sprayer…one night in their shower I just took it off, laid down in the tub, and pointed it. Took me about 3 nights to get up the nerve to get over that horrible tickle…and then wow. I would’ve said wow in capital letters, but I didn’t want anyone to overhear.

DominicX's avatar

@nope haha…I was 5’1” when I was 14… :( I remember I celebrated on Facebook when I finally reached 5’4” when I was like 16 going on 17.

nope's avatar

@DominicX Oh! I think you were in my PE class then! Oh wait…Facebook, lol…probly not…oh well.

QuartzKitty's avatar

I was 11, I believe.
