What are your top reasons for masturbating? (Besides the obvious...) - from Em and Lo

Em & Lo Em & Lo
A college student contributor at EMandLO.com recently posted her top 10 reasons for masturbating, from procrastination (a.k.a. procrasturbation!) to politics -- she says it's her "own little private F you to the social pressures telling me that good, normal girls and women shouldn’t enjoy their bodies the way that I do." So, what are YOUR reasons for masturbating? Besides, you know, having an orgasm!

Bitchiness level is on par to how much tension I'm under - it's a release valve to keep the world safe.

I sometimes refer to masturbation as my Prozac. I use it as a release valve to keep me sane!

To write reviews of sex toys, obviously. I'm just selfless that way.

I Jill off to preserve vaginal health.

Once you're in menopause, if you don't regularly do something to increase blood flow to the area, girly bits shrink, thin and become more fragile. My gyn tells me that without stimulation, women can become so small inside that sex is impossible.

The hubs cannot help with this anymore, leaving me to my own devices.

Stress relief, procrasterbation, and my own little way of getting back at my roommate who sexiles me from the dorm room at 1 in the morning on a freaking Tuesday. If I can't even get into my room, I might as well get off.

I hadn't masturbated solo in about 10+ years (even prior to My Mister... except for phone sex with My Mister). I feel like I'm just rediscovering my body. Learning what I like. Trying new things. Looking for my damn g-spot (which I've found... but now I'm looking for that damn g-spot orgasm). It also helps endorphins and helps stave off a bout of depression. Not to mention stress relief.

well mostly because it's fun

I do it when I can't sleep, if I'm really worried about something, or if I just need a distraction for a few minutes.

Many reasons but mostly I'm entirely too damn horny as of lately and it's wonderful for relieving the tension that builds up. Also masturbating is simply a means of escape and abandonment.

Masturbation is fun, makes me happy, and helps me to not be so stressed out.

One reason I think I started is because my parents brought me up in a very conservative lifestyle, with no one really telling me masturbation was good or bad, it was just treated like masturbation was non-existent and I that I should't have sex till after marriage. So I started doing it as a "F-you" to my parents and also because it just feels damn good and helps relieve stress!

Oh, I just love this, LOL! At least you're doing it for altruistic reasons.

Yeah, I find what many of you have said to be true: in addition to fulfilling sexual arousal, it relieves tension and puts me in a better, more relaxed mood!

The main reason for me right now is the Procrasturbation reason, lol. I love the political one too, next time I masturbate I'll be saying F you in my mind.

Mostly though, to relieve stress/tension/boredom . Rarely but on occasion to help me sleep/wake up on the bright side.

Relieving menstrual cramps, easing tension, getting happy chemicals into my blood stream, not killing husband or lifepartner for not being available when I need relief!

It's a variation of reason #9 "It’s Monday (Or Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday)."

Stress/anxiety relief. My boyfriend complained a lot about how tense I was when we first started going out... then he bought me a toy, helped me to learn how to relax a bit. Masturbating is a sure-fire way to make sure that no matter what crap I had do deal with during the day, I would go to bed happy.

To learn more about my body. Until I started masturbating some months ago I had never experienced a g-spot orgasm.

Most of the time lately, it's been to review toys, out of boredom, or because I cannot sleep.
