So my Greek friend and I began discussing the topic of sex the other night (surprise, surprise). He said he some sometimes preferred to simply orgasm through masturbation instead of through actual intercourse with a female. 

I found this surprising. I can understand women preferring to reach orgasm through their own manipulation; after all, according to the UK’s 2008 National Orgasm Survey, 85% of women often or always achieve clitoral orgasm by self-stimulation, compared to 36% who said they never or rarely achieve clitoral orgasm during penetrative sex.

In the US, approximately 70% of women do not reach orgasm during vaginal intercourse or vaginal-only stimulation.

But men – you guys orgasm every time, several times (sometimes too quickly) during vaginal intercourse. In fact, approximately 75% of men always or almost always achieve orgasm during sexual activity. If anything, men should stop masturbating as it can lead to premature ejaculation.

I would think men prefer to reach orgasm through actual intercourse if given the choice. However, I suppose I can see some incentives:

  • It’s easier and less effort involved (no need for much foreplay or cuddle time after)
  • Convenient to simply masturbate for both sexes
  • More economical (no need to pay for dates or protection)
  • Faster and more discreet for one person to masturbate than two people romping

The Sperm Bank Fertility Center of California list 10 benefits for males to masturbate. They include:

  • Cures Insomnia.
  • Stimulates the immune system.
  • Keeps you in good health.
  • Releases tension and stress.
  • Releases sexual tension without performance anxiety.
  • Fights depression.
  • Earn extra money by donating sperm.
  • Gives the opportunity for life.
  • Is the ultimate safe sex practice.
  • And can be done anywhere and anytime.

Benefits of female masturbation include:

  • Helps prevent cervical infections and relieve uriniary tract infections.
  • Improves cardiovascular health.
  • Lowers risk of type-2 diabetes.
  • Works against insomnia.
  • Strenthens the pelvic floor, which if strong, helps achieve better feeling orgasms.  

Regardless, I suppose you will do what you wish. We just want to know what you prefer. So for this week’s poll we ask:

  2. Ok, since I am the Greek friend that propably JD had this conversation with, I have to say that some things are true in this atricle. I find masturbation being a natural thing which, let’s face it, comes in handy especially for guys ;). I am in a relationship but I still do it often, since it does make me feel good. Sometimes, I have felt the need for masturbating instead of sexual intercourse, since it can be easily seen as foreplay. The feeling is different and builds up the sexual tension (well, at least in my case, hehehe). about the premature thingie, I think it’s not quite true…….after all, practice makes perfect………

    Yes, you are the Greek in question 🙂

    After I posted the article, I did find a Men’s Health article that said the opposite of what I initially found. According to this article, masturbation combats premature ejaculation, making it more difficult for men to ejaculate during intercourse–which, in essence, does mean you’ll last longer.

    The same article also mentions another benefit for male masturbation. It names an Australian study that found that men who ejaculated more than 5 times a week were less likely to have prostate cancer. Since it may be unlikely you’ll have sex this many times a week, masturbation can be a supplement to flushing the system that often.

    However, masturbating can become compulsive and unhealthy. The Healthy Strokes website (scroll down to “What is compulsive masturbation?”) explains it better.

  5. True on all three points….hahaha. Prostate cancer is definately something that masturbation battles. Premature ejaculation, on the other hand is more of a psychological thing rather than physical, at least 8 out of 10 times. I have to say that masturbation works more on the side of lasting longer but there isn’t a definite answer (at least on my case, if you catch my drift). About the unhealthy and complusive thingie, it is subjective; i.e men are compulsive masturbators from the age of 14 hehehehe. If it interferes with your everyday activities, then it is anti-social and makes you un-productive. BUT, I would prefer to be a compulsive masturbator than an alcoholic or a drug addict or even a sex addict, or even a smoker. From all the addictions in the world, masturbation is probably the least damaging of all.

    You’ve just given me an idea for another Poll…!

    But for now… as the old cliche goes: everything in moderation.

    I just looked up a list of addictions
    http://www.addictionz.com/addictions.htm

    I was going to suggest coin collection addiction as less damaging–but I suppose it can get pretty expensive, which can lead to lots of other worse side effects, so yes, perhaps masturbation is the least damaging addictions of all? I’ll keep searching though!
