how's your relationship with masturbation?

snippets of what people shared on campfire.

Sometimes I feel there is an injunction to masturbate, like if someone doesn't they're looked at they're missing something. I started very early like I think I was maybe 8 or 9. Recently I came back to it after a looooooong period of a year without doing it. It's nice to be back at it!

I started early too but didn't actually figure out how to do it until I was 16-17

β€œI went straight in with using a vibrator for masturbation, I was 16 years old and it took me a good while to finally orgasm from it because it was such an intense feeling. I quickly became addicted, even at times spent hours with it. It didn't help me in exploring my body though the reliance on it to achieve that "high" did cause some damage to me and my relationships. I've definitely gotten to a healthier place now and learnt to explore touch and sensuality without toys as well as with.

so I don't do it much personally but I have no qualms against it. I own a few toys and use them from time to time but I also am okay with not using them! i think it's a very good way to figuring out what you like and how to communicate that to your partner but I understand that there's a lot of hang ups about it so not everyone would comfortable with it.

I do it occasionally but would prefer not to. It feels multifaceted, and I hope I don't appear 'weird'. I have had different stages of my experience with masturbation, primarily:1. Teenager. Where the sensations were new.2. Now as a guy in my 40s. Where I just need 'get it out of my system' to try to not be distracted by sexual desire, usually when it's time to sleep.

Weird is awesome ❀️

I don’t like masturbation, don’t know if it’s because of sexual trauma, religion or being on asexual spectrum. It might be also the association I have with it being a male/penis thing, lack of exposure growing up. I’m up for pleasure and sensuality - being turned on all over my body/mind. The pussy focus and orgasm might be another factor πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ I much prefer for someone else to give me that.

It's interesting when masturbation becomes more like a 🍡 Japanese tea ceremony where you truly connect with yourself/your body vs πŸ” wank'n'go. For the record, I love a good burger
