1. Why don't you consider the use of toys masturbating?

2. If any person man or women were given the opportunity for real sex or masturbation, what do you think the popular choice would be?

3. With those first two questions asked, what are you really saying?

In my opinion in order for masturbation to do anything for you, a few things must almost always be true. 1. You must be someone who can get arroused. 2. It helps if you have a good imagination. 3. No contrary belief systems that make you feel guilty for doing it.

I agree that women seem to have a lower sex drive then men (in general) but I don't think it's enough difference to account for the difference in the number of women vs men who masturbate statistically. All those statistics hint to me, is that perhaps more women lie about it.

I began to masturbate when I was in 6th grade (I know, a bit young) and did it all throughout high school. When I went to college, I rarely had time to my own, and if I was on my own, I would be in the library studying. Two years went by, and I didn't touch myself once. I did not crave it - hell, I didn't think about it! I began to notice my sexual drive begin to wane, as I no longer got as "turned on." Hook-ups were unbearable - seemingly eternal! I'd past out before my partner and I could get to third base. My lack of endurance made me very insecure about myself, and my sexual desire was practically non-existent. But then I met the sweetest, most respectful guy, and I could actually feel his longing desire to ravish the hell out of me - though he never imposed anything on me. In doing so, he boosted my confidence to a record level, and that's when my sexual nature got the best of me: I began to masturbate at least twice a day everyday AND have sex two to three times in the day. I doubt that I'd be as sexually active if I my now-boyfriend didn't boost my confidence, and I didn't masturbate. Strangely enough, masturbating makes me even more horny. I'll read up on different positions/sexual techniques, and then fantasize about putting my new-found knowledge to use and trying it out on my boyfriend. I always fantasize about him - no other man in my fantasies! Then I make my fantasies part of my reality. You have no idea how much better our sex has gotten ever since I began masturbating and fantasizing about my man everyday! I'm 22, he's 24, and we're going mighty strong. Not to mention, he's still as sweet as he was the first day I met him Smile To every girl that hasn't tried this, please do so! I'm telling you, you're missing out!

women masturbating
from my understanding every time I have asked a woman if they did they would deny it. I have never getten a yes answer to a woman I have dated or was married to. my current wife does because i have seen her but when i confronted her with she said "no I hade an  itch" she was scratching I guess it itched for quite a long time because I watched her for about 10 minutes

my wife can't have "o" either. it sucks bigtime. I can't get her to masterbate for some reason. I think no being in tune with her body is why she can't have "o". She also is short on the juices. Our sex life is a really big strain on our relationship. At least for me anyways. It makes a guy look at other women a lot harder when he's not getting anything at home.

Great analogy!
I agree completely with Lissachele's comment.I also respect Her honesty about how she feels.
I feel the same way as her, and feel that she needs to be commended for Her true feelings.
If I were Her spouse,I would give Her tremendous respect for what satisfies Her.
Thats what a TRUE spouse would agree with!

men get lonely and hurt too
i am fourty three and been single since i was twenty eight

i raised four children alone for fifteen years
and being single is hard

I am a christian man and its not good for a man to be alone

i have my own food and a cookstove and woodstove

we are self sufficient but

if masterbating is going to send me to a so called hell
when the bible says that hell itself will be thrown into the lake of fire

then i would be screwed but it is god that justifies
the ungodly and the only thing that keeps me going
is getting to release once in a while

I am fourty three and have a very very very high sex drive
so i guess getting married is not in my future
and that just sucks

well i just masterbated 3 times in a row and it was fantastic...i actually started about 5 or so months ago btw im 21 and before, i thought it was sooo gross. why would i want to touch yet alone pleasure myself. well my bf an i split and i wasn''t going to just sleep around with anyone....so i tried. HALLELUYAH..lol anyways i know now the reason why i was so grossed out by it was because i wasn''t comfortable with my body or in tune with it. today if someone came up and ask me if i did it...i would not hesitate to say HELL YES!!! it is definately not a substitute for sex but on the other hand there is soo much out there to catch..defintaly STD, AIDS, and pregnancy proof. and plz dont say there is condoms cuz that not even 100%.

LOL beproactive, so glad you could take a break to update us!! Smile

You indeed discovered the secret to a happy and healthy sex life while you are not in a committed relationship. And yes, you are quite correct, there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. And while you are discovering yourself, you will learn some new ways that excite you that you can tell your next bf about.

Take care!

In my experience most women like 4-out-of-5 masturbate at some point in life but none do it quite to the extent men do. Some do it a bit in their teens or 20's some don't begin in their mid-to-late 30's but if they aren't getting consistent satisfying orgasms women tend not to continue or else they'll go several years between attempts at it. I do know a fairly small and I'm sure even exadurated minority of women that are lifelong masturbators, most of them have pretty voracious sex drives.

Women also tend to frame the idea of masturbation differently then men when you ask them. If they aren't currently in a period of their life where they Masturbate then they don't masturbate. I have more than a few girlfriends that swear they don't masturbate and when I find a vibrator in their closet they explain that they used to but they haven't pulled that thing out in forever.

100%!!! if us women relied on men to take care of us all the time, we would be more miserable than we already are. A little rub a dub dub in the tub never hurt anyone. Dont feel guilty, have a glass of wine and get to know yourself. Hec, I'm doin it right now, and you know you are too.

Masterbating is in a sense natural, but personally i do believe that it is wrong.
i''m a christian and i won''t hide the fact that i''ve tried it before.
At first it feels great and all but after doing it i would feel this sudden chill and then i would feel alone or not fully satisfied. I googled some blogs and i learnt that it was natural for people my age to experiment( btw,i''m a teenager) but even when i would tell myself it was natural it still never felt right. So,i decided to look into the bible because for me it is the ultimate truth and i found something very interesting:
1 Corinthians 6:18
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.
God clearly states it in his word that sexual immorality( in this case masterbating) is wrong. I no longer masterbate and i won''t go back to doing it.
i'm not going back to it because it was gross or anthing. I guess it just wasn't for me.

I see it this way, there are TONS of double standards in our culture that inhibit women. Yes, any woman who feels that masturbation is "gross" is entitled to her opiniin and no, it is NOT unnatural/wrong to feel so. What I don't understand is why women INSTANTLY run to the Bible in search of an excuse to NOT do it, let me assure you, your men aren't as worried about the holiness, or unholiness, of the act, nor do they find it disgusting, wrong, or defiling. I do agree, to some point, that masturbation helps to clarify your bodies needs, pleasure points, and appetite. How can you tell someone to please you, when you yourself don't know how?! I have read the bible full through, and find many laws not obeyed and many more under dispute, but I have never seen one forbidding masturbation, and in reality, what danger does masturbation pose? With that said, I am referring to masturbation with the mindset that it is practiced in a healthy manner, and by a well rounded individual. I think it's easier to call a spade a spade, and admit that women are taight their bodies are dirty, sex is wrong, and if you enjoy it, you too are dirty and wrong. Men don't have douches to wipe away their dirtiness, men aren't the victims to a slew of products designed to change the way we smell, taste, look, and feel. Sex in itself is a beautiful thing, and even the bible mandates that you are to love your spouse, as your own body, so if that is so, then how can sex with yourself be considered ugly and dirty?

@MizQt and bible to the rescue
@MizQt

I appreciate your appreciation of searching for truth and finding a right path to follow. But often assumptions are made when finding that path. The quote you mention does not specifically point out masterbation as immoral, you actually assumed it did. Perhps it means raping and pillaging is immoral while masterbation is OK. At the end of the day, it is about you and how you feel about and logically relate to what is right and what is wrong.

PEACE!

Statisicly 75% of population masterbates and 25% of married couples do when they are apart from each other. In psychology the term maspatory insanity was used until the late 60's and early 70's. Before this time if you masterbated you would be considered insane, infact they had lock like devices to prevent the person from masterbating. Now since the early 70's in psychology, it's considerd a norm to explore your feeling. As for couples, I guess your level of commitment gauges your actions. Some are seeking pleasure and others reproduction. Enclose I believe the subject comes down to feeling and a true since of needs and who is going to feel that void in responce to the select boundries to self and those you select. Please, Please, be Pleased with yourself.Kiss,Kiss

Laughart, Until that time there was also an illness that beset woman, called 'hysteria'. Hysteria was particularly prevalent in unmarried women or women with husbands that travelled. From records, it is clear that the married women were by far the majority of women that got treated for hysteria on a regular basis.

The treatment for hysteria was to go to your doctor where he or his assistant would masturbate you until you orgasmed. This was actually the start of the vibrator industry when it was realized that a person's time can be better used than to masturbate strange woman for money.

Doctors started employing these vibrators until they started making it into homes. Of course not a vibrators but as massagers. But it was pretty clear what it was meant for.

There is a very good book on the subject, the Technology of Orgasm, "Hysteria", the vibrator, and woman's sexual satisfaction by Rachel P Maines.

It is actually strange what was going on in those days, woman that masturbated were considered sick, woman that got sexually frustrated were considered sick, and your medical insurance would pay for another person to masturbate you to orgasm.

What a strange world we live in.

Hotasfrick, no, I don't think I ever will do it and you have no idea what kind of a person I am, it is rude to say that I am not in tune with my body. There is nothing wrong with a person not wanting to masterbate, I know lots of people who don't do it. I am also very christian and I don't believe in it. The bible says it is wrong.


lissachele, for those who do not do it might encounter problems for their marriage. Your husband missed that part of the fun. Men do not want sleep with a dead fish. they want to sleep with a natural women.
