How old were you when you learned to masterbate?



I was around 8. I used to think I was so smart for catching on young. Then I found out a lot of people leared this useful skill at a tender age.



A neighbor told me he learned in the cradle. He says the younger you learn, the smarter you are. I think he's wrong on both accounts. Therefore, if you are a late bloomer, don't feel bad at all!



How old were you? Do you want to share the discovery experience?



I don't know how to use the polls, so if someone want to clue me in, don't hold back.

I was 18. It was after I had sex for the first time. Sad, really. I did make up for lost time though.



Strangely enough, my mother was open about her sexuality and masturbation in general, I read a lot about sex and I had the freedom to do whatever I wanted with my body for the most part. It just didn't really occur to me to do so. I also thought it was something boys did more than girls because I didn't really have the urge to do it myself.

I sort of figured it out by accident when I was around 11 or 12. I was doing it before I knew what I was doing had a name, and that it was something to be embarassed about.

Most children masturbate first when they are in their preschool years (3-5), and although they do it because it feels good, it isn't sexual in any way.



Then they kind of forget about it until they reach pre-adolescence. I think I was about 9 or 10. I thought it was a dirty and shameful thing to do, because that's what the Christian sex book my mom gave me (in lieu of the "sex talk") said. I willed myself to never do it again, and I didn't until college, when I took a human sexuality class and learned that these bodily functions are normal and are not evil!

Hmmm...yeah...I'm a late bloomer myself.



Now, I knew about sex and masturbation at a very early age. I was 18 the first time I had sex...and 20 before I really learned and began to enjoy masturbation.

I still don't think I've learned! Well, if you mean actually giving yourself an orgasm, no, I still haven't learned. But if you just mean touching yourself because it feels nice, I can't remember not doing that.

I was about 12... it was after reading a Judy Blume book. I forget the title... ("Now and Then?" No... I forget.) Anyway... the character in the book talks about touching her "special place."

by accident at 8 or 9 while climbing a pole. i did it all the time afterwards but i'd always try not to and say this is the last time b/c i was ashamed of it till... forever like 17 when i finally realized it was normal and religious beliefs became absurd to me.

I believe the book you're referring to is 'deenie'.

My mom gave me a book about girls sexuality and it had a small section on masterbation but not really. it was more about learning more about your body parts. putting a mirror down there etc and i got interested and did it then. i was about 12. but didnt do it anymore until i was about 20.

I was pretty young, I can't remember exactly, maybe 9 or 10. I really enjoyed it. I thought it was wrong to do though, but I dunno maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much

I would say that exact thing to myself, too. It was like I was trying to quit smoking or something. I was constantly trying to quit, keeping track of how many days since I had done it, etc. It was such a relief once I finally quit.



All through highschool, I would have these feelings of guilt for those pre-adolescent years that I had masturbated. I felt that I had done something horribly wrong, something I would never be able to tell anyone, and I would have to live with the guilt my whole life.



Thank goodness I finally discovered that not only was masturbation completely normal and okay, but that pretty much everyone does/has done it at one time or another. I hope that, as a parent, I am able to convey the message to my own kids that sexual feelings are normal and healthy, so that they don't feel ashamed of them the way I did.

I think I started in first grade. When I got a little older I was worried I'd go to hell for doing it.

I guess the only reason I think it is sad is that my first sexual experiences with men would have probably been better if I had a better idea of what felt good to me. Besides that, any time is a good time and it is not sad at all.

I also never masterbated until after I had had sex. I just didn't have a sex drive until the wild beast was unleashed ... 20 I guess.
