There is no right or wrong way to masturbate. As long as it doesn’t interfere with other aspects of your sexual life. Masturbation is like anything. Use it in the context of the rest of your life and look after yourself and others.

This still needs to be reinforced in 2020. That we still need to tell each other it’s ok to touch yourself is a strange judgement on self-professed enlightened souls.

But we do need to tell ourselves this.

In fact, masturbation isn’t right nor is wrong. It just is.

Psychology Today describes masturbation permissions this way:


Masturbation is sex

Masturbation is okay

Not masturbating is okay

Masturbation with a partner is sex

Self-pleasure is okay

Masturbation without orgasm is okay

Masturbation with orgasm is okay

Masturbation in and of itself doesn’t take away from sex with a partner

Masturbation can be a way to self-soothe

Masturbation can include sexual fantasies

Masturbation can include no sexual fantasies

Masturbation with a Fleshlight, vibrator, or any sex toy is okay

Masturbating while watching porn and reading erotica is okay

Masturbation can be your entire sex life
