What is masturbation?

We have spoken a lot about masturbation on the site but how many of us know what masturbation actually is? Masturbation is when you touch your body for sexual pleasure. People masturbate in lots of different ways. How you masturbate depends on how comfortable you are with yourself, and what makes your body feel good.

For many of us, masturbation can seem like a scary thing. Especially as we are not taught about it growing up. But it is actually natural and good for you. Not only is masturbation a good way to learn about your body. But it is also great for getting in touch with your sexual side and understanding your body before having sex with someone else.
There are different ways to masturbate. Some people may stroke or rub their penis or vagina. And some may use their fingers to penetrate themselves. Masturbation sometimes results in orgasm and sometimes it doesn’t. The great thing about masturbation however is that it can’t lead to pregnancy or cause a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

A lot of people believe that masturbation is a normal, healthy thing to do. You need to decide for yourself what you believe and whether or not you want to experiment with touching your body. If so, just make sure you have some privacy before you you start. And what ever you decide, remember that it is your body and your choice.
