Is it narcissistic if someone masturbates in front of the mirror?

Or even homosexual? I'd say it's more on the narcissistic side than gay side.

  • Definitely NOT gay. That's not at all what gay is.

    Some narcissistic people may do this, but I think that the majority who do it aren't that way. I think they are either just curious, or they are visual and find it hot to look at, and it wouldn't matter if it was themselves, or someone else, that they were looking at.

  • i deserve best answer :D

  • None of the above. It is normal and is a great way to become comfortable with yourself.. and learn how to please yourself. It will help you in the future. It is your body and you can do what you want with it.

  • There needs to be a neither option. Different strokes for different folks. If you find it hot and it doesn't hurt others, knock yourself out.

    • But think of a basic psychoanalysis, why is this person is getting off on it? I'm not saying it's wrong, between you and I (and everyone who will read this comment) I've done it.

  • I don't really think it's either. It's not gay to look at yourself...It's narcissistic if just looking at your face gets you rock hard/ soaked.

  • I think it's great because you're loving yourself!

    • Do you do it, then?

  • Idk, I think this can be sorta fun. Same as having sex in front of a mirror. It's like watching a p*rno with you as the star which I guess can be sort of a turn on. I guess its just interesting knowing what you look like sometimes, when you're having fun.

  • Theres a scientific name for the sexual attraction to ones self, begins with 'Auto-' but I can't find it. But it's generally unrelated to narcissism and homosexuality.

    • Autosexuality, but I thought that was just like another way of saying masturbation

    • No, that is another way of saying masturbation, also called Autoeroticism.There's one called... Auto-something-philia. It's a fetish

    • hmmm.. I'll try an find it

    • Show All
  • I'm sure we all had our curious/adventurous moments with our sexual side, but I tried it because my girlfriend at the time told me if I find it sexually thrilling.

    To be honest, I felt a little gay doing it, but if they do it occasionally, I think they're narcissistic depending on what they are thinking about.

  • I think I would have to agree with you

  • Maybe if they feel turned on by themselves, it could be considered narcissistic. But otherwise, maybe they just want to see what's going on down there or try something new. I don't think it can be assumed so generally.

  • I think its hot if a beautiful woman is doing it.

  • There's no "neither" choice...

    • Just answer neither

    • Okay... neither...

  • Who does tihs?

    Also, if you do, video or it doesn't happen. Clearly you must record it and show it and prove it to us -_q

  • so if I play with myself that makes me gay?

    • If you suck your own d***, is it gay?

    • its my d***, I would if I could, and id still like girls like you xD

    • :o

  • Id say Narcissistic.

  • if that's gay then, masturbating in itself is gay since you are sexually pleasing yourself. However it is kinda down right conceited because I don't think even super good looking people do that

  • Narcissistic.

  • Narcissistic

  • Who masturbates to themselves in a mirror lol. Oh wait, you probably do :p

    • I have lol

    • I knew it lol ;p

  • I have done this and feel some shame about it (hence why I searched for the question), but here are the reasons I think it turns me on:

    1) The biggest one is that I am codependent. I get off on the idea of getting my crush/partner off, and I can't even come if my pleasure isn't enjoyed by a man. I am working on that actually, but anyway. Basically, when I look in the mirror, I imagine my crush getting turned on by me.

    2) I have an objectively hot body 36-25-37, and masturbating in the mirror helps me get over body dysmorphia. I developed an eating disorder as a teen and actually hated and abused my body for many years. In this way, I think it can be a form of self-love and acceptance.

    3) I do not like porn. So much of it is so fake and unbearable for me to watch that I can get turned off while searching for a video. If I want visual stimulation and don't have a partner, the mirror is often easier.

    4) I do have some narcissistic tendencies (not npd), but I am working on them and my other issues in therapy. What I think really matters is whether or not behaviors hurt myself or others. In my normal non-sexual life, I take accountability for my mistakes and always try to see issues from other people's perspectives. People who can't do those things have much more serious narcissism problems than people who masturbate in the mirror...

  • This is DEFINITELY narcissistic! Gay is when you're attracted to the same sex and interested in a romantic relationship with someone of the same sex. If you love yourself to the point of masturbating in front of a mirror then you absolutely have a case of extreme narcissism. I consider myself somewhat narcissistic and I don't even do this!! I might be obsessed with selfies, looking in mirrors, and being the center of attention but what's the point of masturbating to yourself? I honestly see no point in doing this whatsoever unless like I said, you are VERY narcissistic and most likely have other personality disorders mixed in...

  • i've done it. didn't really look at my body all that much, I just like watching my boner get huge and explode at the end from another viewpoint. haven't done it since though cause its pretty boring

    • right

    • oddly enough though every time I pass by a mirror I HAVE to look at myself...i don't even think I'm that great looking but its become a habit ;D

    • I think most people do that.
