How did you first learn about masturbation?

Just a curious question to go along with my similar question earlier about how you learned of blowjobs and or cunnilingus.

When i was a kid i found out on my own about masturbation. At some point, in elementary school, my mom had got one of those seat massager (the kind you just lay over a chair or lay on a bed) and i somehow figured out when i lied on it, it made me "feel good."

Trying it on my own, found it one day how good it felt and couldn't stop though back then it was considered sinful and was always watching the doorway to my bedroom when living at home.

I didn't realize it was something people did until I found people talking about it on the internet. It's not really my thing.

I figured it out on my own at a really young age. It's a fairly natural thing...little kids do it all the time. We just teach them not to, and that it's bad/dirty. The coolest response I've seen so far to young kids (5 and 6 year old girls) masturbating was their mom telling them that this wasn't something that you are supposed to do in public. It's something you do in your room or the bathroom, and you need to wash your hands and go to the bathroom after. No shame, no guilt, just facts and rules to keep other people from feeling uncomfortable and the kids from a UTI or something.

All from my neighbors (household of 4 boys). I thought it was totally gross. I was like 6 at the time though.

I don't remember exactly, but I wouldn't be surprised if I learned from my church! The LDS (Mormon) Church teaches that masturbation is a sin, so I may very well have learned about it from that. I didn't figure out how to turn myself on for a long time, though, so despite a few attempts, I was never successful until the age of 21.

I discovered it on my own by exploring and experimenting with my body.

Hard to remember, but I think on my own.

When I hit puberty and got my period my mom gave me a couple books on sex and bodily functions.

I think that I started touching myself on my own, but never orgasmed from it. Not until erotica/ reading guides online.

When I was 12 I would skim my mom's romance novels for the "good parts"...I read about it there and then tried it for myself.

To answer my own question, I discovered it on my own. Good thing to, because I was never around anyone who discussed it and the Internet was a long way off when I was a kid.

I think on my own. I am not sure.

I figured it out as a preteen before I even knew what it was exactly, it just felt great haha. I was actually scared that it was something harmful at first until I started seeing stuff online about it, thank god for the internet!

When I was 10 years old I went into my parent's room to grab a book from the shelf since I had finished the one I was reading. My mom came over and handed me a book and told me to go read it. It was a book about sex for kids and one part mentioned masturbation. I had recalled sitting certain ways that made me feel good there, but thought it was wrong to touch myself in that way because of how I grew up. I started kind of touching through my underwear, and eventually took the plunge and explored myself a little more.
Learned on my own, but first heard about it from a sibling's friend trying to see how much I understood.

I didn't start masterbating until I was in my 30's. I've seen it in porn magazines when I was god round 13 on up then I watched a video or two that did nothing for me.

I sort of figured some of it out on my own, but I needed a little help to get all of it. My family had a "shower massage" hand-held shower thingy, and I discovered, right before puberty, that it felt good on the head of my penis when I was aroused. But it didn't send me over the edge.

Around that time, I spent the night with a friend of mine who was a little older. We "camped out" in his big backyard. He had just discovered masturbating to completion and proudly demonstrated. I was AMAZED at how far his cum went when he came! I tried it, but couldn't get off then. But I did soon after that, in private. And the rest, as they say...
