Is it common now for guys to prefer masterbating than sex? is it a younger guy thing?

I’m getting this from a TikTok I watched about a women who constantly got rejected by her boyfriend but he’d instantly masterbate and did that daily. I’ve never had that but in an argument in a long term relationship a guy told me at points he preferred masterbating to sex. He never really went a week without masterbating. The comments were tonnes of girls agreeing to this situation. I’ve never had rejection for it but I’ve been told it’s better than sex at points and the guy always had to go home three days a week and I’d ask jokingly if he did which he would every time.

Superb Opinion

  • I think younger guys from 16 to 20 may prefer masturbation to sex because of his high hormone and the hassles that comes with sex.

    Yes, hassles, like the need of a partner, protections, which to a guy who has no earning power is hard to come by.

    Hence, not that they don't want sex, but circumstantially difficult. (This leads to their TikTok showing the fake side of them.)

    But for older guys, who knows how to make some money and able to get girls for sex, he sure prefers it over masturbation.

    Also, many who have a relationship and have sex regularly may even attempt to stop porn and or masturbation altogether.

    This is because they know how harmful those acts are to his relationship and hence choose to endure than masturbate.

    To conclude, I think its a younger guy thing. Once we grow past our poorer and needy state, we'll choose sex over masturbation.

    • Why do you think it’s a money thing what if the guy doesn’t earn much and is on minimum wage

    • Money is always a thing in a relationship (not implying the girl is a gold digger). Bare minimum, if he cannot even afford condoms or too lazy to buy it (happens), he'll likely not get girls. Also, if he doesn't pay for meals, somehow today, girls still will view him as stingy. And his chances to lay her goes down. Obvious contrast the above with say a guy why now has cards and cash and a car. Won't you like to date him? At least for 5 dates to know more about him? PS: of course many girls married poorer guys. That's love and yes, those guys I think will choose sex over masturbation.

Most Helpful Guy

  • I think that BOTH genders, and the others, in between are more likely to self-pleasure than engage in shared sexual activities.
    Mostly, I think with the Virus, and also, because nobody talks to them about it, and all they see is online, and some of that is scary, freaky sht!!
    It's safer, easier, to be alone, and just feel your own things, and do what you like.

Most Helpful Girls

  • To be honest there are times where I am horny but can't be bothered with sex so I can see why they might do that. The thing is that if you do that too much it will damage your relationship. I guess my answer is that it's probably not better, just quicker.

    • A lot of the comments said that too that guys want a quick effortless way

    • A lot of them said too it’s guys need someone new since that’s their biological programming

    • Or long term relationship which I get there’s points it dries up but surely not that much

  • everyone masturbates so expecting them to stop is useless. sometimes we just aren't in the mood or have to energy to actually have sex, maybe try riding on the guy for once?

  • Well I would much rather have sex than use my own hand so... it's not just about me getting off but her as well. Which makes it better for both of us at the end

  • Sounds like they are either addicted to masturbation, too lazy to put in the effort necessary for pleasing their partner, or just want instant gratification.

    Personally, I'd much rather have sex, by a factor of a million. Masturbation is great, as as a means to control the urge, but it in no way compares to sex, at all.

  • technology make people lazier than ever
    yes SOME guy would prefer wank to porn because it is much easier than putting some effort to make a girl to sleep with him
    i repeat , SOME guy

  • I only masturbate when I’m single.
    When I’m in a relationship, she gets all my sexual attention.

    • And you’re age says 36 so you’re form the older generation which seem to be the trend I’m going to need to get me an older man

    • You are very right.

  • when you "masturbate" the only person you need to please is "yourself" and that never requires "Guess work" mmm do I like it? do I feel good? do I want more... lol... but really its very satisfying

  • Some people have their preference.
    Anyway it's quicker and there's no room for insecurities

  • I don't know why but it's not that complicated and it feels better and I don't have to care for someone others pleasure

  • Less stress

  • Don't know, I've only masturbated.

  • Well it doesn't come with any strings or issues attached. Just sit/lay down, pop on your favorite porn, and get to jerkin'. Sex calls for prep work, things needed, attention to the partner, etc. Sometimes you just wanna get off.

  • It's called, "porn creep." and it's a real thing. If you compare one-on-one sex to the wild scenes in porn, there's no caparison. Sex is 90% mental, and real-life, can't compare to the fantasy world. It's only going to get worse when the sex bots get less expensive.

    • Could you explain this more to me please

    • What do you mean mental would this be why if I change it up the guy finishes instantly

    • What if they watch normal porn like just blow job porn etc
