  • Masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one's own genitals for sexual arousal or sexual pleasure, usually to the point of climax. The stimulation may involve hands, fingers, everyday objects, sex toys such as vibrators, or any combinations of these. Mutual masturbation between partners (mutual manual stimulation of the genitals between partners) can be a substitute for sexual penetration. Masturbation involves touching, pressing, rubbing or massaging a person's genital area, either with the fingers or against an object such as a pillow; inserting fingers or an object into the vagina or anus; and stimulating the penis or vulva with a vibrator, which may also be inserted into the vagina or anus. It may also involve touching, rubbing, or pinching the nipples or other erogenous zones while masturbating. Both sexes sometimes apply lubricating substances to intensify sensation. Mutual masturbation involves two or more people who sexually stimulate each other, usually with the hands. It can be practiced by people of any sexual orientation (male – male, Male – Female, or Female – Female), and can be part of other sexual activity like foreplay before penetrative sex. It may be used as foreplay, or as an alternative to sexual penetration. When used as an alternative to penile-vaginal penetration, the goal may be to preserve virginity or to avoid risk of pregnancy. Mutual masturbation can be practiced in pairs or groups with or without actually touching another person. Masturbation is frequent in humans of both sexes and all ages, although there is variation. Various medical and psychological benefits have been attributed to a healthy attitude toward sexual activity in general and to masturbation in particular. No causal relationship is known between masturbation and any form of mental or physical disorder. Masturbation has been depicted in art since prehistoric times and is mentioned and discussed in very early writings including in Kamsutra of Indian saga Vatsayana. Now, religions vary in their views of masturbation; some view it as a spiritually detrimental practice, some see it as not spiritually detrimental, and others take a situational view. The legal status of masturbation has also varied through history and masturbation in public is illegal in most countries. In the Western world, masturbation in private or with a partner is generally considered a normal and healthy part of sexual enjoyment.

    • Wow, that's a long response

  • Masturbating is when you touch your genitals for the purpose of pleasure (it feels good), usually to the point of orgasming. Google is your friend.

  • For some, it's a very natural thing; other people, an addiction; and others, a sin. It's up to you what you want it to be. Still, though. You're young, I wouldn't concern yourself with such perversions, toys, games, and climbing trees are much more important at thirteen, sweetie.

  • Its just like having sex but you do it solo (self) and pleasure yourself
