I'm a late-40s male who has been married over 20 years and masturbated for about 35. Though I can honestly say I am above average in looks, I have always far preferred my private pleasures to the anxiety and uncertainties of searching out partners for casual sex. While I'd classify myself as being on the straight side of Kinsey's 7-point scale, marriage never slowed down my masturbation fun — it just added another type of regular sex. I do enjoy my left hand: It's always there for me. I don't have to worry about its moods, or about adequate foreplay or premature ejaculation.
Ever since I was in elementary school, I have felt physically advanced for my age. I was always the tallest in my grade, and when the time came, I could see I was the first to be going through puberty. I actually felt proud of this "accomplishment." I noticed pubic hair developing about the time I was in the 4th grade (age 10), and by the next year I had a much deeper voice than any of my peers. By the time I was about 13, my body was pretty much covered with hair, just as it is today (I am currently 19 years old). But perhaps that is a story for a different Web site.
My first masturbation session was probably at age 15 and a half (yes, I know it's late), in the bathroom during the school holidays. I had read a section on masturbation in a book my parents had bought, and I was trying out the technique. Nothing seemed to happen, but it felt good, so I continued. After about 10 minutes my body was wracked with an incredibly powerful orgasm, causing me to cry out involuntarily. (Fortunately, nobody else was home.). My ejaculation was feeble — a tiny droplet of clear liquid appeared at the end of my penis.
This is one of the most bizarre things I've ever done, but I'd like to give it a try. I've read some of the other Biographies, and found them interesting, so I thought other people may be interested in mine.
I'm 19 now, so I don't have a particularly long history, but that's not to say I haven't had sufficient experience!
I masturbated to orgasm for the first time in July 1987. I was 12 years old. I was washing the small amount of pubic hair I had, and noticed that my penis began to get erect. I rubbed my penis with soap using a "two hands praying" method, and it felt very different from how I had remembered it feeling just a few months earlier. Soon I felt my penis becoming very sensitive -- almost ticklish. It felt like I was going to urinate, but more intense. Since I was in the shower anyway, I wasn't that concerned if I did actually did urinate, so I kept rubbing myself.
It seems like yesterday, but actually it was years ago. I was in 5th grade, and a classmate of mine and another guy and myself were walking around the baseball field at recess far from everyone else. My friend asked us, "You guys ever beat your meat?" I had no idea what he was talking about. I just looked at him and said, "Huh?" He said, "You know, play with your d*ck." My friend and I said no, and he went on to explain how to do it. He said you go into the bathroom and get into the shower, take a shower as usual do, and then you take the soap and rub it in your hands until they are white.
I'm not sure exactly how old I was when I first started masturbating -- either 11 or 12 -- but I know I was curious about my body, other people's bodies, and sexuality from a very young age. At age 7 I remember lying in bed, pulling down my pants, and holding up my erection to look at it. There was no stroking, no sexual feelings at all -- just curiosity and amazement. At the same age, I became fascinated with the female body, having seen some female nudity in movies with the help of my older brother, and wanted to know what they had in their pants.
I was about 9 years old when first told and shown about "tossing off" [British slang] by a friend behind the cricket sight-screen at a sports complex that included the tennis courts where both our parents played. He was a year older than I was, and I could not believe what he told me. He also told me babies came out of their mother's tummies. Yuck!
I am 15 and very excited there is such a site as JackinWorld. The first time I ever masturbated (of course that's not what I knew it as), I was 7 or 8 years old. It happened when one of my friends who was the same age came over and showed me how he touched himself and said that it felt good -- so I had to do it, too. Although we never touched each other, it was still fun. From then on I used the regular "Fist" hand grip with spit as a lube. I did this until I was 9, and then I started to masturbate in the shower using soap or shampoo, which I know now is not good for you.
I first discovered masturbation when I was about 12 years old. I was channel-surfing in my bed and found an infomercial, and it had some really pretty women in it, so I pulled down my pants and started rubbing because it felt good. I had no idea what was going to happen. When I reached orgasm I was, at first, scared and shocked. After I realized that it *felt good* I kept going and finished the orgasm. I didn't feel the semen on my stomach, so when I pulled up my pants, I made a huge mess everywhere!
