Is this masturbation method safe?

Unread postby Akari225 » Tue May 05, 2020 7:36 am

Hi,

I'm a guy, 17 years old, and I like to masturbate in a kinda wierd way. What I do is lie down on my stomach and use my fingers to rub my foreskin over the back of the head of my dick. It feels really good but I'm worried it might be bad for me, especially cause I'm not really erect when I do it, I'm mostly flaccid. I can do it the normal way too, should I stop this and only do it the normal way?

Hi Akari225,

The basic guideline with masturbation is that as long as a way of doing it isn't causing you pain or discomfort, the method you're using is fine. From what you've described, I don't see any indication that the way you like to masturbate is bad for you. Is there a certain reason why you're worried it might be?

That's great to hear, now I can Do it without feeling guilty. It's just That I've read things online about it being bad to not be erect when masturbating because your body doesn't associate pleasure with erections

Great!

You know, our most important sex organ is our brain, not our genitals. The key point is that it feels good for you - whether you have an erection or not. Sure, some types of sex are easier when erect but it's pretty limiting to say there is only one "right way" to do it - you know?
