Although I masturbate both clothed and naked, I need to be naked for really enjoyable masturbation. Nudity fills me with a wonderful sense of sexuality.
- age 21, Ontario, Canada
Usually I have my pants pulled all the way down just for convenience. If my mom pulls up in the driveway, I can quickly pull them up. Also, I don't have to bother with taking them completely off and then having to put them back on. As for my shirt, I usually unbutton it, or in the case of a T-shirt, I take it off so I don't mess it up.
- age 16, Texas
I usually masturbate with my clothes on, because my dorm room is not kept warm enough, and I do not want to be caught masturbating (people know if I am in my room and not answering). Skimpier clothing makes me want to masturbate because it just feels sexier.
- age 15, Massachusetts
I only like to masturbate naked. I don't see how someone would like to masturbate with their clothes on.
- age 17, Ohio
Clothes off! Clothes are claustrophobic; I feel restricted and furtive in them. I am stimulated not by clothes but by the air enclosing my entire body (not just my genitals). The first day of summer is the first day I get naked in the sunshine! Clothing makes me want to masturbate less. Ban clothes!
- age 41, United Kingdom
Definitely without clothes! I have to share my bathroom with two brothers and a sister, and it seems like everyone has to use it at the same time. I don't even feel like I take all my clothes off that much. But when I get alone and can get naked I masturbate like crazy. I just want to spend one day to just go naked and masturbate.
- age 16, Texas
I always masturbate buck naked because I don't want to be hampered by any clothing. I want to see my full chest and massage my nipples and testicles freely. I always get horny and want to masturbate when I wear surfing or rowing shorts without underwear because my penis is swinging free. My rowing workout always makes me horny, too.
- age 25, California
I usually like masturbating with *almost* nothing. For instance, I find it more fun when I wear just socks and my sunglasses. It makes me feel more naked than when I wear nothing.
- age 17, Holland
I prefer to take my time, which allows me to get naked. It's easier to explore and enjoy my entire body without the constraints of clothes. There are many times, however, that there is not enough time to get naked and take my time. There is still something cool about pulling on my penis through my opened fly when there is little time but the urge is present. The best thing I did was change from jockeys to boxer shorts – they are infinitely more sexy and exciting.
- age 31, Ohio
I usually wear my clothes. I would like to get into wearing a "masturbation uniform" or something, but I can't figure out what kind of clothing would be appropriate.
- age 16, California
Since I was 12 I've masturbated with my clothes off. I've been into weights and stuff and I have a pretty good body, so I like to see myself naked and masturbating. Clothes don't matter to me except to get them off. It's a turn-on to be naked and masturbate on the beach near our house.
- age 18, California
I usually do it with my clothes off. It just feels better that way. Plus, I get hot when I masturbate, so this helps keep me cool.
- age 18, Michigan
I usually masturbate with my clothes off. Certain kinds of clothing make me want to masturbate. If I'm wearing red, I tend to masturbate more because for some reason red turns me on.
- age 14, Russia
Almost always now, it's clothes off. I just feel more free to be naked. Also, my wife and I sleep nude and she doesn't mind if I masturbate before going to sleep on nights that we don't have sex. When I was younger and privacy was a problem, I did it with my pants and shorts around my ankles, usually in the bathroom.
- age 45, Michigan
I usually masturbate either naked or with socks on. It's curious because it seems that the socks help – perhaps for more friction when I move my feet and legs around. Most of the time, though, it's only with socks.
- age 15, Illinois
I usually wear a T-shirt, often socks, and a jockstrap from time to time. Also, I occasionally masturbate wearing briefs or boxers. I generally prefer to have something on, rather than going totally nude. I live alone, so I like to let the semen dry rather than cleaning it up; it's exciting to see the product of my evening's entertainment when I wake up the next morning.
- age 29, Missouri
Usually I'm buck. But sometimes I like to masturbate through my clothes. Like sometimes I unzip my pants, go through the fly of my boxer-briefs, and have just my pole showing. The only clothing that affects my desire to masturbate is a nice, fresh, tight pair of boxer-briefs.
- age 21, Pennsylvania
Without clothes on. It doesn't matter to me what I'm wearing at the time. Whatever clothing I have on doesn't make me want to masturbate any more than any other piece of clothing.
- age 16, Indiana
I certainly prefer to masturbate with my clothes *off*; it makes me feel free and invigorated – just an all-around sexy feeling. It's a lot more pleasurable on every level. But most of the time, folks, it just ain't practical to strip down to nothing. So I usually just pull the pants down and the shirt up and hop to it.
- age 24, Florida
If I am wearing pants or shorts, I take them off and masturbate with my panties on, but if I am wearing a short dress or skirt, I just reach up into my panties without taking off the dress or skirt.
- age 17, California (female)
I am usually wearing something – often just a T-shirt and underwear or something. There are certain types of clothing, like jockstraps or nylon soccer shorts, that always make me want to masturbate. Maybe I'm a sicko, but even wearing certain types of shoes makes me horny. Putting these things on by themselves or in combination usually leads to a great masturbation session.
- age 23, Washington
If time permits, I like to get totally naked. If people are home, naturally you need to have your shorts no lower than your knees, *just in case.* As for types of clothing, it really doesn't matter. I like to masturbate regardless of what I'm wearing.
- age 35, Hawaii
I always like it naked. That feels best, and if I can do it out under a tree or lying on the grass naked, it seems to feel really great!
- age 15, Washington
I always masturbate completely nude. I can't imagine wearing clothing at all during masturbation or sexual intercourse, even outdoors on a sunny day. Being naked is such a turn-on, it adds more stimulation and makes my orgasms really explode.
- age 39, Pennsylvania
I masturbate completely naked 98% of the time. I find that I am rather excited by masturbating naked, partly because of the chance of being caught. No particular types of clothing make me want to masturbate.
- age 14, Michigan
I sleep nude and I usually masturbate in bed, so I am usually nude when I masturbate. However whenever I put on particularly sexy underwear or a Speedo bathing suit I immediately start to get an erection. I think it's because I imagine the guys who model that kind of clothing and think I look the same. This sometimes gets embarrassing in the beach changing house.
- age 25, Massachusetts
Usually with my clothes on. I'll bang my pillow and fantasize that it's someone very attractive. I like to masturbate in blue jeans sometimes, because of the restriction it causes. Corduroys feel awesome to a different degree. They feel so loose, its almost like you don't have any clothes on.
- age 14, Arizona
I like to wear women's undergarments, such as panties and brassieres. I am straight, but it really turns me on to wear women's clothing. But when I want to masturbate in a hurry, I usually just unzip my fly.
- age 20, Minnesota
I usually masturbate in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I usually just keep on whatever I'm wearing. I lift up my T-shirt or nightgown over my breasts, so I can fondle them with one hand, and I reach into my panties with the other. Keeping the panties on keeps the moisture contained. When I masturbate at other times I start by touching myself with my clothes on, and then I gradually take them off piece by piece. By the time I get to my panties, I'm just a minute or two away from orgasm.
- age 32, Pennsylvania (female)
I like it with clothes off, but sometimes I have to do it with them on. Then I really make a mess in my pants. If I wear silk boxers or nylon underwear, it makes me more horny than just regular cotton undies and I masturbate more frequently. It always makes me horny to wear my white Adidas shorts with silk boxers under them. The shorts are sort of transparent, and it makes me horny to know everyone can see what kind of undies I'm wearing other than the waistband that shows above my shorts.
- age 19, New York
Whether I'm dressed or not sometimes depends on the masturbation method I'm going to use, whether I'm alone, and how much time I have. The shower massage usually necessitates undressing first (haha). Sexy underwear or no underwear is great – I like the feel of fabric brushing against my nipples. Plus, no underwear makes me feel a little "out there" and puts me even more in the mood.
- age 40, Maryland (female)
I like to strip down to nothing except socks. I don't know why I do this, but it really turns me on!
- age 17, Missouri
Masturbating with my clothes on doesn't give me any pleasure. I love my body, and I love to enjoy it by observing it carefully.
- age 15, Macedonia
Nude 90% of the time. From time to time I like to masturbate while wearing only a T-shirt and socks. It turns me on quite a lot to shoot all over the T-shirt!
- age 44, Georgia
If no one is home and won't be for a while, the clothes go off! If someone is home and I'm trying to keep it quiet for fear of getting caught, I keep my clothes on. A nice pair of jeans makes me want to masturbate because all day I'm riding the seams and it stimulates my clitoris. When I get home I have to relieve myself.
- age 15, Kentucky (female)
I always masturbate completely naked. First, I like the way my testicles swing when I masturbate, and I like to rub and squeeze them – I cannot do that when I have clothes on. Second, it's much easier to clean up when you are naked rather than clothed. I think I first started doing it naked so I wouldn't get anything on my clothes, and I've been hooked ever since.
- age 17, California
Usually with my clothes off because it lets me explore my body freely with my hands. Some clothes definitely make me want to masturbate more. Clothes like silk give a slick feeling – a real turn-on. Also, when I wear clothes I was wearing when I did something sexual, I get more aroused.
- age 15, Wisconsin
I usually masturbate with most of my clothes on. There are six people in my family, so it's very hard to get any privacy. I usually have to do it quickly in one of the few lockable rooms in my home. I would do it without clothes more often if I could. As far as I'm concerned, clothes are nice, but I'd rather be in the all-natural suit I was given!
- age 17, Arizona
Usually with my clothes off, but I almost always put on my favorite cologne before a session. If you spray it all over your chest and especially around your penis, you really notice the scent because your body naturally starts to perspire while you masturbate. Having a masculine scent around really helps you get into the mood and can even lead to a stronger orgasm. The only downside is that once you start doing this, you'll notice your cologne lasts only half as long as it used to!
- age 17, Indiana
I like to wear my Tommy Hilfiger cotton boxers, because for some reason, when it rubs against my penis, it feels *amazing.* My silk boxers also make me want to masturbate more.
- age 18, Toronto, Canada
Most frequently, I masturbate with my upper pajamas on and trousers either off or pulled down. But when I am alone at home, I prefer it completely naked. Sometimes before actually masturbating I put on some elastic underwear, such as tights. It is exciting to watch in the mirror as my erect penis stretches my tights.
- age 53, Czech Republic
It really doesn't matter to me.. Clothes off if I'm already naked and getting into the shower – clothes on if I'm just plain horny.
- age 16, Kentucky
I like to masturbate completely naked. However, I sometimes get really turned on just wearing a T-shirt and nothing else. Also sometimes with a T-shirt and jockeys with my genitals sticking out the fly. I guess I'm saying I like masturbating!
- age 25, California
I like wearing sweaty athletic shoes. Nothing else, though.
- age 32, Washington
Since the most common place I masturbate is in bed at night, I am almost always completely naked. But for some reason, whenever I buy new underwear, I go crazy and just have to masturbate with it on.
- age 16, Utah
I masturbate naked and in the shower, since I'm engaged and constantly within 20 feet of my betrothed. Silk is by far the sexiest cloth; sometimes only the thought of it will arouse me.
- age 28, Washington, DC
I have some black Nike sports shorts that really tun me on. My neighbor's brother wears these a lot and I'm extremely attracted to him. They are also smooth and light, and if my penis slides out of my briefs they rub against it. Despite my fetish for these shorts, though, I masturbate naked.
- age 15, California
Almost always naked, but I often find that if I wear khakis with no underwear, I become aroused if I'm home alone. So I become naked and masturbate, but *hey,* I blame the pants!
- age 17, Texas
Naked is definitely the way to go. I find that if I wear silk boxers under baggy pants, it makes me really horny. The soft feel of the silk, combined with my penis flopping around against my leg, really turns me on big time.
- age 37, Ohio
Usually, but not always, I'll wear nothing but a really short T-shirt or a tank top. Nothing down below, of course. Being naked from the waist down turns me on, for some reason.
- age 15, Canada (female)
Two words: "Board shorts!" Besides lots of girls running around in short board shorts (the hottest surfing fashion in California), running around all day in slick, slippery shorts just makes me want to masturbate.
- age 17, California
I usually have nothing on when I masturbate. I find that wearing a tight-fit tank top makes me want to masturbate as it makes me feel more muscular and attractive.
- age 25, China
I'm usually forced to masturbate with clothes on, at least my shirt, because even though my door is locked my mom has become quite the locksmith. So it helps to get dressed fast and open the door. If my mom is not home, I usually take off all my clothes and extend my session. I don't know why, but my orgasms are a lot better with all of my clothes off.
- age 16, New Jersey
My experience is not complete unless I am totally nude. I like being nude as much as I like to masturbate (although it is important to remember that nakedness and sexuality are very different things). I enjoy the best of both experiences this way: masturbating while enjoying my body the way my creator meant it to be – unclothed.
- age 28, California
Usually with no clothes except when my parents are home. Then I will have my clothes to my ankles and I will try to go as fast and as quickly as possible without letting out any noises or trying to waste too much energy or run out of breath. I find that when I am naked, the feeling is much better, probably because I am not in such a rush as when my parents are home.
- age 15, Canada
I normally masturbate when I just wake up, so I am in just my undies. I never like to be totally nude in case of emergency and you have to hurry and get dressed.
- age 25, Pennsylvania
I tend to masturbate spontaneously, so it's with clothes on. Wearing boxers turns me on, mostly because it's so loose down there.
- age 15, Virginia
Clothes off, definitely. I like to turn the air conditioner way up to get the room icy cold; then I get butt naked and sprawl out on my bed. With my fan on, the cold air sweeps over every part of my body. Then I just rub myself all over with my ice-cold hands. Feels so good sometimes I don't even masturbate.
- age 17, Louisiana
Unless already nude for a shower, etc., I usually start with clothes on. Stripping has always been an exciting part of my personal ritual. By the time I get my underwear off I'm really hot and ready to shoot. Wearing briefs of any kind – including Speedos and jocks – has always gotten me hard. I can't wait to masturbate when I'm wearing 'em. Why? The look has always been sexy to me, because they highlight the genitals, and each type feels great "down there" in its own way. A little bit of the right clothing is always, in my opinion, more sexually arousing than outright nudity.
- age 53, California
I usually masturbate with a T-shirt on, no bra, and no panties or shorts. I want to masturbate when I wear pretty panties under my clothes or no panties at all. Clothes do affect the quality of my pleasure.
- age 17, Texas (female)
I sometimes masturbate with my clothes on, sometime off. It depends whether or not my roommate is home! If he is, I masturbate clothed so that if I have to answer the door, it won't take long to get there. It also depends on the amount of time I have. Also, wearing tank tops or other muscle- accentuating clothing make me want to masturbate more. What can I say? I turn myself on.
