Masturbation or Masterbation which term do you use and why?

Fun Lover Fun Lover
I have always spelled masturbation this way, but have seen it spelled masterbation, and have often wondered why two spelling, according to our Webster's the first spelling is the correct one.

People who spell it masterbation are idiots.

Masturbation is the correct way. The other people are hooked on phonics and not the dictionary.

If can't spell it, you shouldn't be doing it

No need to be mean. Those who spell it wrong aren't idiots. We all have things we are bad at. English is terrible when it comes to consistency and that is a great part of why some people are so bad at spelling. We can't spell our own words right and we can't write or pronounce others words right because just our vowels have too many possibilities. But I won't deny I get really annoyed by common misspellings.

Heh, the OP mentioned Webster's. I don't trust dictionaries so much anymore for various reasons. I've kind of argued with people from a few companies over spellings/pronunciatio ns. But that is another tale.

To answer the original question, I use "Masturbation", it is the standard way. If you take out the u, a part of the word's origin of turbare ("to disturb") isn't there?

I could potentially see Masterbation being linked to some form of BDSM, but that's usually a 2+ person activity, so that still doesn't make sense. Masturbation it is.

LMAO. Couldn't agree more. I'm not an idiot, so I spell it "masturbation."

Let's make sure we're not insulting others. We all have our pet peeves. For some of us it's grammar and spelling. Let's choose our words carefully, folks!

Personally, I pay a lot of attention to the red squiggly line that shows up under a word whenever it's misspelled, but I know I'm guilty of forgetting to go back and correct something.

Wondered why two spellings? There aren't. There is only one. I suppose you could misspell it in an infinite number of ways, but that is all it is-a misspelling.

I use masturbation because I'm just that way, but I suppose someone might choose to do masterbation for a reason.

"Masterbation" and "vegitarianism": two things that are important to me, two things that are ALWAYS misspelled.

It depends, to me its self "masturbation". But if I am doing to someone else then it is mutual "masterbation". Thats just how I use it and also partly due to my involvement in the D/s commuinity.

I don't have a reason to deliberately spell it incorrectly. It's masturbation.

I spell it correctly...because I'm kind of neurotic about spelling.

Masturbation's the only way we've known how to spell it, which is obviously the correct way.

It's always been masturbation for me. I didn't even know that there were people who spelled it differently.

Its Masturbation.....great fun.. The English language is a tricky thing especially when different countries using what was originally the same language, spell the same word differently.
