Masturbation Facts

Forget whatever you’ve heard about masturbation. Masturbation is one of those topics you very rarely ever hear the facts about, but no one wants to talk about it. As any topic having to do with sex or the genitals, masturbation is not a topic for polite conversation. But when you’re young and healthy, you’re bound to have questions about your body. Hopefully, this will give you all the facts about masturbation you really need to know.

Masturbation is when you manipulate touch your genitals to get an orgasm. It usually feels really good. It also feels really intense. Your genitals often put out as much moisture as if you’ve urinated, but you haven’t done anything wrong. It’s natural. Animals masturbate. Ever wonder why Fido keeps licking the same spot over and over again? Now you know.

Masturbation is something you do in private. It’s a good time to find out about your body. Many people think the orgasms from masturbation are better than in actual sex. It’s good to know how to please yourself, so you can teach a lover later on. If you don’t want a lover (which is all right), you can release tensions and have a good time. Some people find when they can’t sleep, masturbation helps them to get drowsy.

There are many myths about masturbation. Many people still are told that “touching yourself” or “playing with yourself” will led to blindness, madness or hairy palms. You won’t. You can’t get pregnant by masturbating. Some religions state that masturbation is a sin, so doing it leads to guilt. Having orgasms outside of marriage does not hurt your body in any way.

So why do many people think that masturbation is bad, or sinful? Perhaps because an orgasm is such a powerful, all-encompassing sensation. You feel out of control and strange, unusual and shocking thoughts can occur. This probably led to some religions thinking that any kind of orgasm that didn’t have to do with making babies was bad. Perhaps thinking their children are interested in sex is a sign that they are growing up, which can make some parents very sad, because they want their children to stay young forever. Masturbation is only bad when that is what you want to do all the time. It’s like eating only chocolate. Your body just can’t eat only one kind of food in order to stay healthy. Our sexuality, including masturbation, is a part of our complicated lives.

Everybody has their own way of masturbating. We are all unique individuals, with individual likes and dislikes. Some like to fantasies while masturbating, some like to look at sexy images, and some just turn their minds off and go with the flow. Some rub, some use sex toys like vibrators, and some prefer their hands. And some people are just not interested in orgasms. That’s okay. Don’t make fun of anyone if they say they never masturbate. They could be telling the truth. Would you like it if they made fun of you for liking chocolate, or needing to wear glasses, or something trivial like that? The biggest fact about masturbation is that it only plays a small part in our lives, and so is nothing to worry about.

I am worried very worried can some of you people can help me our. I am 30 year of age. Never married till now. So I have never been to any lady. It means I have never done sex with any females. I have done gay sex for 10 or 12 times then I left it too. But I masterbate alot. Can you imagine I started from the age of 9 years and I have not stopped still. and I feel alot of sickness in my dick. Like now it don’t have the powerful errection though its ok and hard but so hard as it was 4 or 5 years back. and I feel alot of scarceness. Somebody told me that you will not be able to satisfy your wife when you get married. Now please can anybody tell me what to do? is this bad or not? I mean will it be bad for my dick or not? and I be able to satisfy my wife or not? but I tell you all people honestly its a shit (Masterbation). Rather you should do sex with your wife.
What you people say can any body guide me truely as I read all these comments and to be honest I don’t agree with all these comments. Because I am most experienced person in these comments I hope. So I have not found it good and next you can think it better.
Thanks and bye
A Prior Note to you all guys and gals:
Masterbation is very harmful to all you people because I am having it right now. So I don’t want you people to suffer. And honestly I tell you that till the age of 25 you will not feel it even but after that you will clearly feel weakness in your sexual power. Trust me and I request you people not to do this anyway. Bye

hi guys.

I noticed that heaps of people are say is it wrong to? Am i weird and its a sin. First i dont know howwe can emphisise that masturbation IS normal! Belive me! I am 13 and i’ve been doing it since i was 11 i’ve had oral and its almost the same as self love only it is more exciting because of the randomness from your gf/bf.

Is it wrong to. If you do it and it feels right to you. O ahead. If you want to no if some else does it, ask a close friend. Find some-one to confide in. From personal expirience dont go to your perents… XD

Its a sin. It all depented on your religion. It all depends on how deep your belifes are! As someone said before, animals masturbate. So we can be classified as animals. And to answer MC question, no there is no concivable way to get pregnant by the act of self love. Hope i helped

ha I read one comment saying they were a proffessor. But spelled that wrong.. and also used the word “ur”.. thought that was funny!

I quite enjoyed this article! I completely agree! Masturbation is a perfect empowering thing for people of any age or sex. You can do it everyday, it’s so healthy for you as well! It sends out endorphins to the brain creating that very pleasurable feeling! Because of this great endorphin release it can relieve things such as stress.

Thanks so much for writing this!

Ha and to the 14 year old comment, you feel weak because your entire body spasms, aka muscle spasms, drink some water, and lay down for a little, you’ll feel just fine.. Also when you have a release your body releases hormones that make you very tired, so it’s an extremely normal feeling!

Its one of my weakness that I have, But I truly like to masturbate for hours. Enjoy the pleasure on my male body. I truly like the feeling I give my body. I am very good at this so it relaxes me alot.To be Honest I’m a Catholic Male who like’s to masturbate often even though I go to Church Regularly I feel the Priest masturbate’s also. We all are sinners. So I enjoy MASTURBATION often.

Well, I’m like what, 12, and my mom doesn’t talk about masturbating yet, but there was like one day where i went to my friend’s house, and her mom’s all like, talking about masturbation to my friend. I asked what it was and her mom said that my mom should have told me by now. I found out that it was good for you, (weird) and wondered if I should do it. I feel nasty sticking my finger up THERE, so can someone help?

There is absolutely nothing wrong or immoral about masturbation. I am both a Christian and a minister and have studied the matter extensively. So go ahead and enjoy yourself. God placed you hands and your genitals in close proxmity for a very good reason.

jacking off is not bad. but at the same time its not good if you do it execively… if you do it like 2wice a day every day, by 6years you will need viagra because your penis will not be as strong… if you do it once a week thats normal
