What Is Masturbation?
Masturbation involves sexually arousing yourself by touching your genitals. Both men and women can masturbate, and you can masturbate yourself or someone else.
Is Masturbation Normal?
Yes. Apart from the pleasure it gives, masturbating can help you learn what you like and don’t like sexually. Men can also use masturbation to learn how to control their orgasms, while women can find out what helps them to achieve an orgasm. Many couples masturbate together and find it a very enjoyable part of their relationship. Other people don’t and that’s fine: it’s a personal choice.
How Do You Masturbate?
There’s no right or wrong way to masturbate. Men usually do it by rubbing their penis. Women usually touch and stroke their clitoris and the area around the vagina. The clitoris is a small soft bump in front of the entrance to the vagina. It’s very sensitive, and touching and stimulating it can give strong feelings of sexual pleasure. Most women need the clitoris to be stimulated to have an orgasm during sex or masturbation.
What Is Ejaculation?
Ejaculation occurs when semen shoots out from the penis when a man has an orgasm. There is usually about 5ml of liquid, but there may be more, especially if a man hasn’t ejaculated for some time. Women can also ejaculate fluid, but this is far less common than for men.
Is Masturbation Safe?
Yes. For the record, masturbating doesn’t cause blindness, insanity, or acne and won’t make hair grow on your palms. Joking aside, there’s no risk of pregnancy or catching a sexually transmitted infection (STI) from masturbating on your own.
However, there is a risk of pregnancy with mutual masturbation if sperm is transferred to the vagina on your or your partner’s fingers.
There is also a risk of catching an STI if you touch someone else’s genitals and then touch your own. This is because STIs can be passed on through infected semen or vaginal fluid.
There is a risk of infection if you use sex toys during masturbation and someone else with an STI has used them before you. Any object used in sex can be called a sex toy, whether it’s designed for this use or not. It’s important to keep sex toys clean. If you’re sharing sex toys, wash them between each use and, where possible, put a new condom on them each time. Find out more about cleaning sex toys.
Can You Injure Yourself When Masturbating?
You’re unlikely to do yourself any harm, although there is a risk of soreness, cuts or bruising if you masturbate too roughly or too hard, or use an object that could hurt you or cause damage. Men sometimes worry about whether they could break the penis. This is rare and only happens when an erect penis is violently twisted, usually by somebody else. Find out more in Five penis facts.
Does Masturbation Affect Sperm Count?
Masturbating will not affect a man’s ability to produce sperm. Men will not run out of sperm, as they produce it continuously. After a man has ejaculated, it will take some time before he can ejaculate again. This is normal and doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with his sperm.
Can You Masturbate Too Much?
Masturbation is harmless, but if you do it a lot your genitals may feel sore. If men do it a lot in a short space of time, they can get a slightly alarming looking swelling of the penis, called oedema, caused by fluid in the tissues. The swelling does disappear within a day or two. However, if you feel the need to masturbate is interfering with your everyday life, talking to a GP may help.
6. Use Headphones, Because All Of Your Not Masturbating At The Same Time
Respect your roommates’ privacy as well. Who knows he is really doing meditation behind the closed door. Hence, it is a better idea to use headphones while watching porn or listening to audio erotica.
7. Discover Your Preference
Do you know what turns you on? Discover your preference down to the tiny details. Who knows you may like candles that double as massage wax.
8. Are You Warm Enough?
It is easier to reach orgasm if you are warm. Under the cover or in a warm bath or shower may remind you of your partner’s body.
9. What To Wear? Or Should You Wear Anything At All?
It depends on what kind of mood you are in. Wear nothing at all if your are comfortable. Or try some sexy lingerie if you are playing with fantasy.
10. Think About Lube. Think About Batteries
You have bought batteries for your toothbrush. It is working perfectly fine inside your vibrator. Not a bad idea. For extra sensation use lube. Be it your toys or your fingers, both works well when things are little bit wet.
