Many people described how the risk of discovery heightened the eroticism of the session so that the climax was one of their most memorable.]
Whenever my cousin comes to visit (maybe twice a year), we usually go into my room, take off our clothes, and look at each other. One night while she was asleep in the bed next to me, I got really turned on. I lifted up the sheets and looked at her with just her underwear and bra on, so I just started masturbating. After I ejaculated, I carefully cleaned myself up with a towel that was near the bed and went to sleep.

Occasionally I masturbate in bed next to my wife while she's sleeping. But once I did it secretly near someone at work. One day I got really horny, so I went into a little-used restroom there, sat down in one of the two stalls, and began to stroke. Someone else came in. I could see through the crack in the door that it was one of my good buddies. He sat down in the stall next to me. I thought about it for a while, and then continued my activity. Somehow having him sitting there just a couple of feet away on the other side of the metal partition became such a turn-on for me that I had a wildly intense orgasm and found it really hard to keep quiet. As far as I know, he had no idea what I did.

I was in my bedroom on the computer. My best friend was asleep next to me. As I was looking at JackinWorld, I started getting horny. That was when I did it. I don't think she knows – but if she does, she didn't tell me. It was a great experience: the "fear" of having someone catch you fingering yourself.

Once I watched my girlfriend shower. She asked me to bring in the new shampoo she had left on the table after putting away the groceries. Until then I had not yet slept with her or even seen her totally naked. When I saw her, I gave her the shampoo, and then I shut the bathroom door but stayed in the bathroom. I masturbated, climaxed, and cleaned up, and then sat on the toilet and watched her some more. When she opened the clear curtain, she was happy to see me still there. Then we went and made love.

I was at my friend's house. Not to be sick, but his mother is very attractive. One day she was wearing a bikini and came downstairs where we had been hanging out (although he was upstairs at the time). She turned her back to me, bent over, and started looking for something in some boxes on the floor. Her bikini bottoms were sliding up in the back, and all the buttocks flesh was exposed. I got turned on, so I pulled my pants and underwear down just enough that I was fully exposed, and began to masturbate. His mother turned around and saw me. She just smiled at me and said, "Don't worry, I won't tell. You can keep doing it," and went back to looking around in the boxes. I was very turned on by this.

I've masturbated in bed while my wife was sleeping. I'm addicted to masturbating, and it has always been my fantasy to masturbate in front of my wife. She has never approved of me doing it in front of her, so I came up with the idea of doing it while she was asleep. I was enjoying myself so much that I climaxed twice the first time. I continue to masturbate in the room while she lies sleeping in our bed. Sometimes I'll do it sitting on the bed totally naked while reading Penthouse.

I once had about 10 friends sleep over. We were all in the same room, and I was masturbating. I thought they didn't know – but when I closed my eyes, I heard a giggle and then I found them all watching me and laughing.

I was working out of town with a friend who is straight. He was checking out the girls while I was scoping for guys. That night we were in the room together and the place was totally dark. He was in the next bed snoring away, so I figured what the heck. I couldn't get this one guy I had seen out of my head, so I went at it and had a great time. I told my friend about it later and he had a good laugh.

One time my boyfriend and I were on a road trip and we were fooling around in the back of the car while his dad was driving. We masturbated each other several times the entire trip. We don't know if he knew or not, but the excitement of getting caught added to the other thrills and made it great.

My friend was staying overnight, as he does every so often. I had been really horny and woke up in the middle of the night masturbating. This happens to me a lot if I don't masturbate before I go to sleep. Eventually I finished with him about 6 feet away and totally unaware. It wasn't really enjoyable – no session that starts before I wake up is. But, that he was *right there* added a lot to it. I could almost swear that I hit him when I ejaculated because I shoot rather far, but since he's never mentioned it, I doubt it.

I was hospitalized and in traction in a semi-private room when a girlfriend visited me. We were both in the mood, so she felt under the blanket for my erect penis, and then adjusted the movable screen so the patient in the other bed could not see us. After masturbating me for a short while, she sat down in the visitor's chair, pulled up her legs, pulled down her panties to expose herself, and started to masturbate. I did likewise. The poor sick guy next to me was unaware of the action. Sometimes we had to stop when a nurse attended my roommate, but when we finally climaxed it was one of the best ever – for me and for her.

I wasn't in a room but in the lake at my camp. My guy friends and I got naked in the water, and it made me so horny I just put my hand down and let it work. I didn't climax, but it felt extremely good. I look forward to doing it again!

If my wife falls asleep and I want to masturbate, I do so next to her in bed while she sleeps. It's just okay, not great. A couple of times it has awakened her, and that turns her on so she helps out. However, that doesn't happen as often as I would like.

I was at a friend's house and had seen him masturbating earlier. That turned me on, so when we were playing video games later that night, I sat on the couch behind him and masturbated. Later that night I told him that I had seen him wanking earlier. He apologized. I asked him if he wanted some help with it, and he hesitantly agreed. For the next couple of years until he moved away we got together regularly and masturbated with each other.

I masturbated while reading and studying for an accounting exam in college. My roommate was in the bunk beneath me. Accounting is not really that interesting; I was bored and looking for something else to do, so I started masturbating. Then I realized I had forgotten that my roommate was in the room. At this point it became more arousing, and I wanted to see how far I could go without him discovering. The further I got, the more excited I became. It was one of my best orgasms ever. Later, I found out that he masturbated regularly with me in the room when I didn't know.

Once I masturbated in the barbershop. Since the robe thing they put around me was so big, I could easily move my fingers around. Even though I couldn't moan and stuff like I always do, it was extremely exciting knowing that no one else knew I was masturbating.

Several times. My favorite was on the way back from a family vacation. It was more than a 12-hour car ride, and I was feeling exceptionally horny. My dad was driving, my mom was in the passenger seat, and I was alone in the back seat. I was bored out of my mind, so I slid my hand into my pants and played around. Once I had an erection I couldn't resist; I started stroking my penis. I kept it in my pants, but my shorts bulging with each stroke made it very obvious what I was doing. Pretty soon, we were stuck in a traffic jam. I knew my parents were unaware of what was going on, but I looked out my window and saw this truck driver watching me. Having a complete stranger watch turned me on even more. Being a little more daring, I pulled it out. He smiled and gave two thumbs up. I felt an intense orgasm coming, but I didn't want to shoot all over, so I pressed two fingers just below my scrotum to have a clean orgasm. [Note: JackinWorld does not recommend this technique -Ed.]

When I was in the Air Force, I used to masturbate under the sheet late at night when everyone else was asleep. I would climax quickly just from feeling the tension of doing it with around 40 other people in the room (barracks). I would climax even faster when I would hear someone else doing the same thing.

I had recently bought a new computer and got one of my smart friends to come over and help set it up. He had lost his Internet privileges when he was 12 because he was looking at porn. I felt bad for him, so I let him look at some sites. Soon I looked over and saw that he had an erection. Wow! That really turned me on. So as I was lying on my bed, I started to rub my clitoris. That got me all excited. When I saw him start to stroke it, I unzipped my pants and slid a few fingers in. As far as I know, he never knew. So, that was my exciting experience with the computer nerd.

I had a roommate right after high school who was in the room taking out his contact lenses. I was masturbating and had an orgasm right then and there. He came over and started talking to me and probably never knew what I had just done. I was lying in bed at the time and really scared that he would figure it out. I cleaned up as soon as he left the room. It was scary and exciting at the same time.

I share a room with my sister and sometimes I masturbate quietly under the covers. But shhh, don't tell!

I was in a boarding school where we slept in huge dormitories (about 12 guys in each). I guess we all did it! We were all around 13 years old and horny as hell. Some guys would put on displays for the rest of us. Mostly, though, I would do it alone and devise ways to do it every night without making too much noise or motion. This went on for 5 years. I got quite good at it! Recently I've wanked in the same room as my girlfriend with her asleep, in the same double bed as my best friend, and in a movie theatre. I love it!

Several times. I go to a camp every summer for 2 weeks. We live in one-room screen houses, sleeping beside each other in sleeping bags and cots. I masturbate in my bed at night after the lights go out. I have heard other guys doing this, too. It seems that if one person starts, others will, too.

I was staying with my girlfriend's sister, and we shared a room (separate beds). When she thought I was asleep she started to masturbate. I heard her low moans and got hard instantly, so I masturbated like there was no tomorrow. To me, that was the biggest turn-on. Unfortunately, that was the only time she did that when I was around. But to this day, I still think about it when I masturbate.

I had to masturbate near someone when I was 16. I was at summer camp with my church youth group, and one night after my tent-mate and I had bedded down, I had an overwhelming urge to masturbate. Since I knew I couldn't get to sleep unless I did it, I slipped my hand down inside my pajamas and started masturbating. Having someone lying only inches away made it even more arousing. Somehow I managed to climax without waking her up – talk about a heavy sleeper!

I masturbated in the same room as the girl that I love while I was sleeping over at her house. I'm friends with her brother – he is a year younger than I am; she is my age. It felt incredibly amazing. Also, I got to see her in her bra!

As far as I know, my college roommate doesn't know that I masturbate in the middle of the night while he's asleep. Usually, I wait until it's real late or listen for him to start snoring. Once I woke up while he was doing it, but I pretended to stay asleep, so I don't really feel so bad about it. It seems more enjoyable sometimes when there's a risk of discovery.

I masturbated at school once in a lesson. I sat in the back of the class and did it discreetly with my left hand while continuing to write with the right one. There were 30 other people in the room, which made it kind of exciting, but I didn't really want to do it again. I hate to think what would have happened if someone had seen me!

I masturbated at my friend's house with her in the living room sitting right beside me. All I did was cross my legs and kick my leg up and down. That feels seriously good, and it brought me to an orgasm. If you ever see a girl kicking her leg while it's crossed, she may not be just releasing tension!

When I was 14 I stayed over at a friend's house. In the morning we were still in our sleeping bags, playing a board game. I masturbated very slowly under my bag, being careful not to allow my face or breathing to give me away, and I managed to keep playing the game the whole time! It was exciting while I was doing it, but immediately after my orgasm I felt silly and sort of ashamed, even though my friend had no idea.

Before I started ejaculating, I used to do it all the time. I would cover up with a blanket while watching TV or something, and masturbate. I've done it with every one of my family members in the room as well as many of my friends. They didn't have a clue (or at least if they did, no one has ever said anything). When I started ejaculating, I stopped doing this – it became too much trouble when there was a mess to clean up.

I masturbated at my friend's house while watching his mother change. That is the closest I have ever been to a person without them knowing I was masturbating. I had just gotten out of the shower as she was undressing to use it after me. She saw me naked and turned her head so I could get dressed. But instead, I masturbated right behind this gorgeous woman without her seeing me.

I'm afraid I've had to sneak one in on several occasions when I've been with a man who is terrible in bed! I normally never go back to the same man once he's been so abysmal! It has been quite enjoyable for me to do this, but then there's always that feeling of, "Hurry up! You don't want to make the bed creak and wake him up."

I've masturbated in a room with someone many times, but never secretly. Sometimes when I'm in the situation and I start masturbating, my friends will say, "are you masturbating?" I say yes, and it turns everyone on. Then we all masturbate together. So, even if I did try to do it without anyone else knowing, they would always figure it out.
