What Is Male Masturbation?

Masturbation is a natural way to pleasure yourself. When masturbating, you often touch and rub your body parts to advance the sexual pleasure you feel. Typically you focus on your penis which you stroke to the point of ejaculation, or orgasm.

Masturbation is a completely normal and healthy sexual activity. It is a good way to experience sexual pleasure and learn about your body. There is nothing to be ashamed of.

Just about everyone masturbates, from young children to teens to married couples to retired people. They all masturbate. Often it was their first sexual experience.

People mainly masturbate just because it’s fun. Touching yourself sexually feels good and an orgasm feels extremely good! An orgasm also relieves the sexual tension that builds up naturally over time. When you’re getting hornier and hornier, and you don’t have a partner, it’s time for a good, private jack off.

Common terms for masturbation
  • Wanking
  • Tossing
  • Jacking off
  • Jerking off
  • Spanking the monkey
  • Shucking corn
  • Celebrating Palm Sunday
  • Buffing the banana
  • Pocket pinball

How to Masturbate?

First, choose a place where you know you won’t be disturbed while having fun with your boner in your hand. A good place can be your bedroom, bathroom or shower; anywhere you know you’ll have privacy.

Next, you need to be in the mood. Try thinking about that sexy girl at school or that nice assistant at the office. If you’re short on imagination, go and find some erotica, sexy images or videos.

With the stimulation comes an erection. To masturbate, you don’t need to have a full hard-on. You can start touching your penis at any time. It is normal that during masturbation the penis may not become completely rock hard.

A record masturbator!

The farthest ejaculation ever recorded by a man is 18 ft and 9 in (5.71 m). It was achieved by Horst Schultz from the USA.

Now that you have an erection, the party starts! Your hand is the most popular instrument used to masturbate. Take a hold of your penis as if you were grasping a tennis racket. Hold it firmly but not too tightly, you should not feel discomfort or pain. Vary the strength of your grip to find out what feels good for you.

Start moving your hand up and down the shaft of your penis. Start gently and speed up when you feel like it. But don’t cross the finish line just yet! Slow down, and caress and stroke your penis. If you allow the masturbation session to take longer, the orgasm will be stronger and feel even better.

Longer masturbation also helps in developing stamina for actual sexual intercourse with a partner.

When you feel you’re about to come, get ready. You don’t want to make a mess on the carpet or on your shirt. Have a paper towel or a piece of cloth ready so that you can capture the semen bursting from your penis.

Sex toys can enhance masturbation

While masturbating without any extras is a lot of fun, using sex toys can boost the intensity and pleasure.

Fleshlights is one of the best male masturbators available. To learn more, see my thorough Guide to Fleshlights. The ​Fleshlight Launch robotic stroker takes the masturbation experience to a wholly new level (read the Launch review).

If you don't want to invest on sex toys, you can also make a pocket pussy at home.

Male masturbation tips

There are many ways to masturbate. I will cover more male masturbation techniques in a follow-up masturbation techniques article. Meanwhile, were are a few tips to get you guys going.

Try different grips. They feel different and you may prefer some of them over others.

  • The Five Fingers: Hold the base of your penis with all five fingers with your fingers pointing to your body, and stroke it.
  • The Backhand: This grip is similar to the regular “tennis racket” grip, but your thumb and forefinger are against the base of the penis, and your palm is touching the opposite side of the penis more than in the regular grip.
Masturbation myths - none of these are true!
  • You'll run out of sperm.
  • Masturbation stunts your growth.
  • Masturbation causes blindness.
  • Masturbation causes infertility.
  • Masturbation causes mental health problems.
  • It is wrong to masturbate in a relationship.

Use lubricant. Lubricants will make your penis more slippery and create a feeling more akin to actual sexual intercourse. Personal lubricants - available in all stores - are the best choice, but for example, hand cream can be used as well. Don’t use soap or shampoo, they may feel good at the time but you will regret later.

Mutual masturbation. Masturbation doesn’t necessarily need to be a solitary activity. Many couples find mutual masturbation an exciting, and sometimes practical, alternative to sex.

Use online porn for immersive masturbation

Lively imagination may be all you need to become aroused. For those that need some extra excitement, virtual reality porn is a mind-blowing way to immerse in a sex action.

Or you might enjoy interactive porn games where you control where the steamy action goes next.
