How do you know when you are ready to start masturbating?

    • I didn't really know what was going on back then, but i was very young (around 10) when i got my first erection. I was curious and started touching it and it felt good, so i continued until i had an orgasm. From that on i did it regularly. I didn't know if i was ready, i just did it.
      So you can do the same. Just try it out and see if you like it. You don't need to watch porn. The touching alone can be enough to get you hard and lead to an orgasm. Or you can imagine things you find sexy. I had no porn when i started. I just imagined sexy girls when i masturbated.
      Just don't stress yourself. :)

      Ok thank you for the reply. I think I'm going to try it tonight and see what happens.
    • it doesn't matter if you are a boy or a girl, there is no right or wrong time to start. As this can be a highly personal experience (first time or rest of your life) it all come down to you. How do you feel about it? Do you have enough privacy/time? Are you wanting to just experiment and see what feels good or do you want to cum. Try to plan ahead, if you know when you want to try it or start.

      If you are a boy, you might need to think about where are you going to cum and how will you clean up (first time not likely to be much mess depending on age and stage of development). Are you wanting to use lube or spit to help increase pleasure? Some guys do it dry.

      If you are a girl, maybe have a towel or something under your bum in case you get very wet, or very unlikely squirt if you are just starting or still exploring. But again, how will you clean up? Will you need to or can you just pull up your panties and not have much mess? Are you planning on using lube or spit? Maybe not experiment with more then just a finger or 2 inside if you want to feel penetration when first learning

      In the end, do what feels best/right for you. Take you time and don't rush. Have fun and be safe. Also as I am a guy, if any girls have better advice please leave it
    • I completely agree with @Heretohelp916 - it's all down to you when you want to start. I first masturbated when I was about 6, though I had no clue what it was.

      In terms of prep, it's probably also adviseable to make sure you won't be interrupted because that can be quite embarrassing so probably best to do it in your room or the shower.

      Watching porn doesn't matter, it has nothing to do with masturbating. You're ready when you're ready. No age limit to it. You don't have to cum, but can still masturbate it feels great.
    • IMO, porn just cheapens the masturbation experience by making you cum too quick with overstimulation, so it’s not as enjoyable as it
      should be. It creates a vicious cycle where you jack/ jill off so much that you only can self pleasure with porn. Not to mention, it can be unrealistic through airbrushing and photoshopping and edited videos as well as objectifying and demeaning and creating unrealistic standards that all hinder actual relationships.

      But do you want to enjoy your masturbation time or just go for a quickie? If you only do it a couple of times a week, that’s fine. Don’t let the posts on this website tell you otherwise that people may masturbate an excessive unreasonable amount like 10 times a day or whatever. And don’t rush, either into or during masturbation.

      Just enjoy what God gave you how He intended it to be if and when you do it...naturally!
    • Well I don't masturbate but one of my friends mentioned it to me and how he does it so if you want to do it find a good time where you cant get caught easily like in bed of in the bathroom are all good ideas for times for it but be warned my friend told me he likes it so much that he has a hard time stopping so in my advice don't try it.

    • Masturbating isn't like sex where there can be a load of emotional baggage with it that means it can be wise to wait to have sex beyond the time when you'd be physically capable of doing it. With masturbation, if started getting horny and if you've started to become curious about masturbation then it's probably time to try doing it.
    • Whenever you feel comfortable doing it. You don't have to watch porn to masturbate. In fact, I'd recommend just using your imagination and going with the feelings for a while before getting porn involved. And remember that porn isn't real life and sometimes it's good to take a break from it.
      What's up, my dudes?
