Male masturbating - a common practice

Male Masturbating

Male masturbating (also known as ‘jerking off’) is often a secret and somewhat guilty pleasure but it is nonetheless very common and certainly not an unhealthy pastime. Masturbation is stimulation of the genitals for the purpose of advancing sexual arousal. In males, this generally means rubbing the penis to the point of ejaculation, or orgasm.

Jerking off is a very normal practice with 92% of males practicing it. Males begin masturbating between the age of 12 and 14, and by 15 close to 100% of males have masturbated to orgasm. The most commonly used technique to achieve arousal is to form a loose fist around the penis and pump it up and down.

Male masturbating has a specific need to rid the body of older sperm so that the newest and best are ready to leap into action. Male masturbating is at its peak in the adolescent years with most males masturbating eight or more time a week, but will continue throughout life, with or without a partner.

The Male started Jerking Off a long time ago!

Male masturbation is one of the most popular sexual activities known to man and is also one of the oldest too. Male masturbation is the act of manually stimulating the penis to produce some type of sexual pleasure. For adults and older teenagers, masturbation typically ends with ejaculation, in which the liquid that contains sperm cells, semen, is ejected from the penis. In most cases, ejaculation is accompanied by an orgasm, which is a feeling that comes over your entire body that is so pleasurable and powerful that it cannot be compared to anything else. Orgasms are different for everyone, so there is not just one way to experience it; everyone feels it in a different way.
Female and male masturbation - a Taboo

Masturbation is still considered by many to be taboo. It is something that a majority of people do; the figures revealed by Alfred Kinsey in his 15 year study back in the 1940s and 1950s reported that 95% of males and 60% of females had masturbated. The question then why is it not a subject that is more openly discussed?

One of many reasons is the influence of faith that often stated that masturbation was a sin. This belief has left a stigma attached to masturbation that continues to the present day. This article will hopefully allow people to appreciate the positive aspects that come about from self-loving.

Since long times, masturbation has been considered something shameful and derogatory to human culture. Though men and women have been masturbating through all ages – the cave painting of Khajuraho in India and ancient artworks of Japan are prime examples – the issue has never been discussed in the open. This has led to a kind of taboo building around the subject of masturbation. But, let us face the fact. Almost all the men of the world masturbate. Since they cannot do that in the open, they do so in the privacy of their own bedrooms and bathrooms. As masturbation was a very individual act until lately, almost each man has developed his own techniques in order to masturbate and achieve pleasure.

Female and male self pleasure - An important activity

Most people have no idea that this solitary sexual practice is surprisingly beneficial for mens and womens health! A recent study you may have heard about has also suggested that frequent masturbation in men may help decrease the risk of developing prostate cancer. While this is not 100 percent certain, there’s a good chance it may prove to be true. Of course, nobody recommends masturbating in order to prevent cancer, but men who engage in this practice frequently should not feel as if they’re doing something wrong because, it turns out, this activity may even help them in their old age. So, as you can see, there are good things to say about masturbation and even some benefits to be had.

Female and male self pleasure - Reasons

This may see simplistic and an obvious conclusion. The definition of masturbation is the excitation of ones own or anothers genital organs, usually to orgasm, by manual contact or means other than sexual intercourse. The sooner you can accept that the more fun you can have.

2. To relieve tension (sexual tension or general tension)

Yes it happens you may go a while (up to the individual) with out intercourse for one reason or another. It can lead to becoming irritable. It may not be a replacement for sex but masturbation can at least alleviate the tension for a while. It has been proven to also relieve general tension by releasing endorphins into the body.

3. To relax

Masturbation can help with stress. The release of chemicals that come from reaching orgasm include endorphins that have been shown to have a calming influence on the body. The rhythm of masturbation can also have beneficial effects.

4. To learn about what feels good and how to be stimulated or pleasured

Self-loving can be a voyage of discovery. It allows an individual to experiment and discover what feels good to them this maybe done by one self or through mutual masturbation either way masturbation can increase awareness that ultimately leads to greater pleasure.

Masturbation has many advantages and should have a better understanding in society as the positives gained from regular self-love have proven medical benefits. The idea of masturbation should be embraced and may even lead to a better sex life for you and you partner. If you can become more open about the pleasures of you own body to yourself and then later with your partner then it will lead to a greater sex life and ultimately a happier life.
