You little sexy miscreant ;)
soul groove feline Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
heh... dude. i'm the *queen* of the aformentioned subject. of course it would be me.
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
hee. i wasn't surprised, either.

and it occurs to me that i haven't yet visited the chick-friendly sex toy shop in chicago. something must be done about that.
Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

There's a really gross porn 'n' novelty shop near my house.  Have always wanted to recruit a female friend and go in character as highly charged, sappy, yet very angry lesbians.

I don't know.  Please don't ask ;P

Hell.  Ask.  Maybe I'll figure it out ;P

Samantha Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
*giggles* I did that when I was 16.. it was pretty funny.. ... Also, since we're on the subject.. for all ye wymmen out there, I was reading some scientific study.. i think they put it in some newsletter I subscribe to or something... that achieving an orgasm can aid in alleviating menstrual cramps... so, you can kill two birds with one stone.. release the internal tension, and the sexual tension... WAHEY!
Michael (foof) Maki · 16 years, 10 months ago
I wouldn't know, I've never done it.

Well, maybe once. But it was on a dare. ;-D
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

Michael (foof) Maki Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
...are you coming on to me?
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

Not so much "coming on" as saying "oh come ON". :)

Kris 'engaged' Bedient · 16 years, 10 months ago

Sometimes self-service just works better. It's faster, usually neater, much more efficient. It's a different kind of orgasm too, from my experience. (yes, there have to be different kinds of orgasms, b/c I have them).

More fun to have sex, but sometimes you just can't wait that long.

Yes you who are reading this. Please put your hands back on the table.

Thank you.
soul groove feline · 16 years, 10 months ago
It's not just a pastime for me. It's an art and a skill that i work at almost as hard and i work at guitar and songwriting. there's so many different ways to achieve different results, even if the differences are subtle...

and i can achieve climax using only my mind and thigh muscles. like, no hands. though it's not quite as enjoyable. antje duvekot wrote a song about that, i think. it makes for the ability to do it in a lot of interesting places. ;)

i have an extensive collection of toys, although i prefer a more natural, hands-on approach. i've done it in (almost) every household location (not the kitchen, which is surprising, because the kitchen is the most erotic room in the house, but it doesn't seem fair to do it there, because other people actually have to *eat* in that kitchen...) i've done it in 2 different countries, 2 different provinces, and probably about 15 different cities. i've done it underwater, in a paddleboat, on a train (the non-hands kind)...

for me, it's mainly about the process, not really the "result", unless i'm really horny. then i'm as antsy and fast as Secretariat.
Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

hey, as long as it's TMI thread...

I can't orgasm. 

It really sucks.

Not saying that I'm incapable, but just...  yeah. 

Hi.

*hides*

goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
no. dude. believe me, i totally understand.

(for the record, i can and do...but actually letting myself can be a whole big process and is all tied up with control issues and self-hatred and blah and blah and blah and why am i going on about this in a public forum? *hides*)
100% dainty! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

it takes practice. maybe someday you'll be able to. :)

Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

you know, if I were looking to totally embarrass myself, I'd say that I wasn't lacking for practice but...

I just said that, didn't I?

damn it all to hell.

stealthlori Back · 16 years, 9 months ago

some medications make it hard to orgasm too.  not impossible, but ...

in this one area, life was much much better for me *before* Prozac.    

Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

I couldn't orgasm until about 3 years ago, and I thought something was wrong with me, but then I got some really good advice. "Just mess around." I followed the advice, and now I can orgasm (quite nicely in fact).

Calls for a demonstration!

Heh. Who would've thought that this poll would elicit the act it's discussing?

Breathe, dave... breathe.

You really think that's a surprising result?

Heh. I guess not. :)
soul groove feline Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
*demonstrates*

how refreshing. ;)
meh · 16 years, 10 months ago

if it isn't fantastic, you're doing it wrong.  if you can't please yourself and have fun pleasing yourself, you're not going to be any good at sexual encounters with others.  knowing how your body reacts will not only help you tell them what you want but it will also give you ideas for what they might want.  masturbation is teh healthy and fun.  you should do it everyday.

and i don't mean that you have to be vanilla about it.  get a toy, grab a porn, go outside.  use your imagination.

i *heart* masturbation.

Rimbo · 16 years, 10 months ago
Kinda funny that the "never tried it" choice is still unchosen. Not funny "ha ha," more like funny "everybody masturbates."
Rimbo Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
Oh, by the way, my response to the question, "How do you feel about masturbation?"  Usually with my right hand.  BA DUM CHA!!!!!!!!!!!!
Starfox Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
One of those attributed-to-but-not-sure-if-its-true quotes is

"95% of all men and women masturbate. The other 5% are liars." -Mark Twain.
dave "buh" · 16 years, 10 months ago
no one here would really want to know my thoughts on the matter anyway :-)
lawrence · 16 years, 10 months ago
I bet all of you who work at offices with insane web filters and proxies are loving this thread, huh? :)
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
no, the anti-sex web filter here only seems to go after streaming independent radio. bizarre.
Phoenix Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
hee. Not at all. IIRC the filter is ip-based, not content based. So fhdc could offer anything... And it blocks every internet radio station very effectively. Yarch.
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
here, they only block the good radio stations. so my coworkers can listen to "the lite" and "the mix" and "the crapadelic testosterfest" to their annoying hearts' delight.
Misch Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
Yeah, the 'labs block Sirius. Damnit.
100% dainty! · 16 years, 10 months ago
what's the weirdest place you've ever done it?

Rimbo Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

Ok, here's the thing.

Do you think it's easier for women to do it . . . covertly?  I mean, honestly, a guy would have trouble keeping it a secret.  There's the question of cleaning up.

Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
some women can actually do it quietly too, while men tend to grunt and then make a mess.
lawrence Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
some men can do it a) quietly and b) without making a mess.
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
quietly?

ahahahahahahahahahaha.

oops. i just revealed too much again.

hey, look! a bunny!
Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
carey's a screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeamer!
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
*hides*
Nik Chaikin Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
i can do it quietly.
soul groove feline Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
i *can* do it quietly, i just prefer to do it... extremely unquietly.

housemates once ran upstairs... "what's the matter?! what's going on?"

ever since then, when other people are around, i usually either do it quietly or turn on TMBG or Fruvous really really loud if i'm at home so i can be really really loud and not be heard. and. um. verbally explicit. then again... is it weird to really like talking dirty to yourself?

*whistles*
Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

I just can't talk dirty. 

Heh.  Great story.  Ask me about the first and last time I was ever called "bitch" in a sexual situation.

Privately, of course ;)

100% dainty! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

i think it might be easier for men in that there's a higher chance that you'll orgasm.  and it's easier to tell too.  (though i am never in doubt. ;)  heh heh . . .ah TMI)

but doing it discreetly is so easier for women, because you can do it through your clothes, and you can do it quietly (some can at least.)  i have a friend who can masturbate when there's a party goin on, surrounded by people, and nobody knows.  and yeah, the lack of cleanup is a plus.

Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

weirdest place?

the floor of the staff bathroom in the margate public library

*whistles and hopes jim never reads this*

dave "buh" · 16 years, 10 months ago
is anyone else getting a sort of voyeuristic thrill from tihs poll?
lawrence Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
if they are, I think it would probably be less creepy if they kept it to themselves.
A girl named Becca Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
Does anyone else not find the thought of other people masturbating remotely attractive or in any way sexy?
Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
mastubating's like sneezing.  a release, nothing more.
A girl named Becca Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
Right. Like, I didn't mean to sound like "ewwww I don't want to think about people masturbating! Gross!" I just...like, for some reason it's supposed to be hot (or at least, the thought of girls masturbating seems to appeal to most guys I know) and I just don't get it. *Shrug.
Samantha Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
I like the way you put that.. *snickers* I'm putting that in my book with all my favorite quotes... half that came from Carey's website.. *runs*
Bender Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
wow!  I'm all kindsa flattered :>
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
eeee!

also, i'm with leah...i don't find the idea of people masturbating to be sexy at all, no matter how sexy i might actually find said people.
Misch Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
mastubating's like sneezing. a release, nothing more.

That's why I take pepper.

My friend told me that once her mother noted that sneezing was just like getting an orgasm, so now everytime she sneezes she follows it by saying, "Oh baby!"
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
Hrm.....I wonder how that correlates to Renita's full  body sneezes. :)
renita Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
baybee, wouldn't you like to know. ;->

i had a long running joke with a friend of mine, based on the sneeze/orgasm correlation and the fact that the nose is mucus producing membrane as is another body part....

this turned into him finding it sexy every time i sneezed. if i was only sniffling he'd call me a tease. he threw his cat at me once to make me start sneezing.

it was awesome, whenever i had a cold, or bad allergies and was feeling, stuffed up and unsexy, i could call him up. and he'd tell me how sexy it was. *sigh*

then he got married. :/
It's a girl! · 16 years, 10 months ago
i've tried it and it does nothing for me. i just feel really gross and like i need to take a shower and think clean thoughts. ick.

i don't know- i mean, i don't see the point. it just smacks of desperation to me. sex for me has always been about enjoying the company of my partner and sharing pleasure-- alone, it's about as sexy as sneezing. i daresay if i wasn't as repressed as i am and actually got off from it, i'd be singing a different tune (although i also don't understand what's so all fired great about orgasms that you have a desperate urge for them, to be honest-- i mean, they're nice, but...*shrugs*)

(i don't mean to come across as disparaging to those who do masturbate-- just saying how i personally feel about my own experiences)
100% dainty! · 16 years, 10 months ago
I would just like to say that in one of Jian's letters last year, he listed as one of his top 10 remedies:

self-love(making)

that is all.
elfy, teacher of many Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
hmm..  "remedies" for what exactly?   Getting recognized while sitting alone in a strip club in Toronto?  (I heard that story in an interview.  It took him several minutes to tell that story - comme toujours, eh?)
100% dainty! Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
woa! i do not know this story!!
Talcott Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
I think I've heard it.
This is the one with the Drinking Song dance, right? ;-)
Rachel Marie aka RAI · 16 years, 10 months ago
Is anyone else really uncomfortable with this or is it just me?

Like, not the topic, but with the fact that everyone's all, "Look at me, I do it!" I dunno, for me this is one of those things you don't talk about. Ever.

Or maybe I'm a prude. :o/
lawrence Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
well, I think everyone's point in mentioning it so casually is that it isn't that big a deal. or shouldn't be. it's just something people do. (or in the case of up to 11% of the people in the poll, something they don't do)
Rachel Marie aka RAI Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
Yeah, but talking about it is like... watching porn or PDA. Somethings should just be PRIVATE, ya know? No one else's business.
Phoenix Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

dwd. I love my PDA. It has never crossed my mind that there's something gross about it.

;->

lawrence Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
well, it's an individual's choice to make it public, right? no one is forcing anyone to read about it.

it's not like people are actually masturbating publicly. they're just discussing it. I think that being able to discuss it in a forum like this is very healthy - I mean, it is normal and suggesting that it should be repressed and taboo, as has been done for a very long time, suggests that it is not normal and that people who do it are somehow wrong/different/evil/all of the above.
Beth Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

While I don't mind reading about this, I totally dig what she's saying. I voted in the poll, and I have my own ideas, but I don't want to talk about what I do or do not do. I guess I stand in between.

There are a lot of normal, natural, and even more necessary things that people need to do everyday and if we were talking about those, then I think a lot more people would be kind of put off by talking about it, regardless of how universal they are. Uh hm, I forgot the point I was making, and even if I remember it, I won't be able to say it the way I want to, so I'm splittin'. {g}

Talcott Back · 16 years, 10 months ago
But when I hear the phrase "watching porn" the first thing that comes to mind is sitting around with friends in the dorms and watching bad cinamax softcore stuff (often, I was the only guy there too, and when I wasn't, I was the only straight guy).
In the end, it comes down to what you're comfortable with, but I don't see any of it as being objectivly personal. *shrug*
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years, 10 months ago

Yeah, it's not on the wall or anything. And yeah sometimes TMI enters the wall but we usually keep it to a level below this kind of candor. It's an easily avoidable forum if people don't want to read and don't want to participate.
