hey all...
is it true that most guys can't go through a week without masturbating? most of my guy friends say that, and they think that guys who can abstain from masturbating are weird. i guess that guys are different in their sexual needs...i don't know...
i was just wondering...:P

Well, it's technically possible, of course. All in all, going a week without masturbating is probably relatively easy. Whether guys (or anyone!) wants to is another matter entirely. Some people have higher sex drives than others; some people masturbate frequently and some people masturbate rarely or not at all. It really varies from person to person. It's pretty rare for me to go a week without masturbating, though I'm a female.

I can count to purple backwards!

My boyfriend says he didn't masterbate for the first time until he was seventeen. And this was after he'd lost his virginity. So, if this is true - then that discredits what those guys say.

But like above - maybe these guys you talk to have high sexdrives - and that's fine. But I'd bet money that there's no medical reason they must masterbate, or else.

It just depends. Some religious people don't masturbate at all. A lot of women masturbate every night, or very often. It's not that special for guys. It can be a very dumb generalisation, like saying that guys only want sex, while a lot of women are like that too. I know a guy who actually promotes restraining from masturbation if you're on a long streak of "unwanted celibacy". For most guys I know it's a once a night deal, but they can stop if they want to.

hey, i'm a 19 yr old guy. I am still a virgin (reference).
As far as how often a guy masturbates;for me it depends, anywhere from once a week to many times a day. But it really depends on whether i was havin a good time flirtin and teasing my girlfriend. But on another question. how long is avg for guys to take before they orgasm. For me its always in the 15-20 minute range. Is that normal?- i heard from a couple of girls whom i know that its unusually long. is that indicative of a health problem or somethin? Anyhow, just wonderin, because i think the girl i am dating now may be the one, and don't want to screw up the first time.

Dont quit, for youre
not a failure,
Until you fail to try

You may find that you orgasm faster during intercourse than during masturbation. Or not.

Either way, it's normal. Yes, it's quite common for young guys to reach orgasm quickly, but that doesn't mean that you have a medical problem or are going to "screw up" somehow if you don't.

I Am a guy and I enjoy partaking of it at least once a day if not two. Once when i wake up, before i take my morning shower - to get my heart-rate up and going (which wakes me up.) Then again when i go to bed or before my shower that night. But if I am busy and have alot going on that week I will do it less maybe every other day. The last time I went a week without doing it was probably like several months ago. I think nowadays our society has gotten more "enlightened" to pleasures of the body so much so that its not considered a taboo for woman to enjoy thier "private time" just as much as the guys. I actually think that the girls of our generation are actually seeking out ways to bring themselves more sexual pleasure. Which for one, this guy thinks is really neat and two which I think will continue into the main stream thus allowing sex-toy sales to be a major area of revenue for retailers. Any commments?

from what i've seen, i agree that it's not about not being able to do it, but is actually about not wanting to do it. i mean even personally, when i first realized how fun it was i was doing several times a week for awhile... but after a few months hehe i only do it maybe once every two weeks if that.

my boyfriend says hes done it maybe once every two months since we've been going out, which i find kind of funny cause it turned into a long distance relationship, different colleges and states and all... and now we see each other once a month if we're lucky... and i would have assumed he'd do it more often since we see each other so little. but he says he just doesnt feel the need or anything.

in the end, it just comes down to the each guy individually. and i was just curious if you asked your guy friends all at the same time together or separately... because they're opinions might have been slightly skewed if they were all together... just a thought.
