Masturbation is something you hardly ever think about anymore, isn't it?
I mean, no one really bats an eye these days. I remember when I was in high school, and I hadn't even taken it up, masturbation was still really frowned upon. Anyone who admitted to it (and believe me, I don't remember anyone EVER admitting to it) was a poof. Yes, you were a homosexual if you masturbated because you were touching a penis. Granted, it was your penis, but still. If you were touching a penis - even your own - that meant that you liked it. And if you liked to touch one penis, then you obviously liked to touch others. And that, ipso facto, meant you were a poof. You weren't gay back then either. That came much later. Oh and, obviously, women NEVER masturbated. How could they? They don't have penises.
Nowadays, it would seem odd if you DIDN'T confess to masturbating. At least a little. I certainly think it's a bit odd, especially for a bloke. To not masturbate is to deny oneself one of the true pleasures of life. The simple things. And, let's face it, it's so easy for us blokes. The whole thing can be over in five minutes. Not for me though.
Five minutes is a marathon.
