How men masturbate themselves to orgasm

Few boys masturbate before the onset of adolescence. Only 10% of boys are masturbating by the age of nine and only 13% by ten years of age. Male masturbation frequencies vary significantly indicating not only a range in responsiveness but also the different conscious choices men make over how they enjoy their arousal cycle from erection to ejaculation.

There is a link between masturbation frequencies and creative imagination. Boys only start to use fantasies once they have some sexual experience (either alone or with a partner). A boy engages in fantasies (at least to start with) because he enjoys remembering a real-life episode. He uses his memories (perhaps enhanced over time by imagination) to achieve what initially occurred spontaneously or through physical stimulation alone.

Men can orgasm through a variety of penile stimulation techniques including intercourse, masturbation and oral sex. Men masturbate to orgasm within a minute or less because of the more specific physical stimulation that masturbation provides. Some men choose to masturbate because they enjoy the variety of sexual outlet. Masturbation is a substitute for the intercourse that may not be available. Men do not masturbate if there is an opportunity for intercourse because of the eroticism with a lover.

Only 92% of men masturbate. Out of every hundred men, 8 men never masturbate. Some boys have their first ejaculation through intercourse. They may never masturbate because they have intercourse sufficiently frequently that they never need the additional sexual outlet. A few men have a sufficiently low sex drive that they have no need to masturbate.

Men masturbate by emulating the male role in intercourse. Men use two or three fingers from one hand to vigorously massage the shaft of the penis. Men typically stand and hold the end of their penis between their thumb and second finger. They move their foreskin firmly and with considerable speed back and forth over the glans. They tend to look at their erection as they press their erect penis downwards and thrust their hips forwards.

Men are usually very flexible about where and in what position they can masturbate. They have no difficulty being masturbated to orgasm by a lover. Some men can masturbate in public such as in front of their same-sex friends. The most natural position for male masturbation is standing. The standing position allows a man to tense his buttocks. But men can also masturbate when sitting or lying down if they are with a lover for example.

Men masturbate with their eyes open. A man may squeeze out some pre-cum liquid to lubricate the glans. A man is aroused by the visual evidence of his own arousal. He typically watches the action of his hand pumping the shaft of his penis. As he approaches orgasm, a man raises himself up on tiptoe and pushes his hips forward. This has the effect of tightening the buttock muscles, which put pressure on the internal sex organ.

Although male speeds to orgasm are quicker with masturbation than intercourse the orgasms may be erotically less rewarding. Masturbation relies on being able to imagine turn-ons whereas, with intercourse a man has the turn-on of a partner that allows him to achieve the best sexual release. Intercourse has the benefit of providing a warm and wet environment. Men enjoy the arousing sensations of thrusting that intercourse provides especially as they age and their hormone levels fall.

Male masturbation simulates intercourse as much as one can by using just a hand. The action of using fingers to massage the skin covering the shaft of the penis rapidly up and down over the glans, stimulates the penis in a similar way to intercourse. Men also use mental images or sexual fantasies that relate to relatively realistic opportunities for intercourse.

Highly responsive and younger men are easily aroused. So men only need to use fantasy to boost their natural arousal during masturbation alone. Some men rely purely on imagination but often visual material is more effective. Masturbation relies on having a creative imagination. The closer a scenario is to real life the easier it is to create a scenario in one’s imagination. Movies are better than images. Young men naturally transition to sex because their fantasies revolve around realistic scenarios.

As technology improves, some men even use inflatable dolls to masturbate into. This is a reflection of men’s dependence on the erotic stimuli involved in having a real-life partner. The advantage of a sex doll is that it is always available. Sex dolls are typically female. Gay men do not need sex dolls. This is a reflection of men’s active role and women’s passive role. Women do not buy sex dolls or try to replicate the erotic stimuli of a real-life lover because they are not aroused by real-world erotic stimuli. Women do not imagine real life partners or realistic scenarios when they masturbate.

In the human male, masturbatory techniques are largely manual. … Most males carry the activity though to climax as rapidly as is possible, which means it does not ordinarily continue for more than a minute or two. (Alfred Kinsey 1948)
