graymane (31) NOT EVEN CLOSE .....
I'd venture to say a surprising number of women rarely mastubate, if at all.
Contrarily, I submit one would be hard-pressed to find many males who don't flog his log every chance he gets.

Interestingly, I think with the advent of porn's acceptance and popularity on the rise (slight pun) and a relaxed view of sexual taboos gaining a foothold with women, we'll see this ratio soon make a dramatic turn in catching up with their male counterparts.

Cybertoad (104) The simple answer is no.

The more complicated one is women as specific sexual being. They require a certain set of circumstances to require the degree to masturbate. Men on the other had just have to not have sex a few days and are ready to toss one off while brushing their teeth.
Men can just about pee anywhere with ease and minimal time and so goes masturbation. Women require more time and at least some convenient access to their erotic zones. Men need a place to grab their pecker. I think the access issue alone would make this a no answer. The other is women more easily can shut off those I got fuck something feeling then men can. It is why some women think men are pigs, not true but psychologically we reach a point it will stay on our minds until something is done about it. Either pussy or pull but we do not retract those feeling that easy.

jberryl69 (12) I think it depends upon the age and sex drive of the person we are talking about. A 15 year old male vs a 15 year old female, probably the guy. A 25 year old woman vs a 25 year old male - probably about even. A 45 year old male vs a 45 year old woman, probably the woman. An 88 year old of either sex, neither.

BadMrFrosty (56) Depends entirely on the person, I dont think it is fair to generalize.

pat362 (367) I say no but I believe that the number of women who regularily masturbate is a lot bigger today than it was a decade or more ago.

gaypornolover (38) Difficult to say but on the whole I'd say no.

Men need to ejaculate regularly after all, so I'd say there's more of a physical need that way.

Of course there's always exceptions, but on the whole I'd say men do it more often.

I do believe most women do it though - polls which claim to show a percentage of women who don't just mean women lied to the pollsters as far as I'm concerned.

Toadsith (48) I would say "no" under the assumption that the poll is discussing women and men living in Western culture. Masturbation is practically expected for men, though still shunned by some groups. Masturbation for women is viewed with much, much more stigma. There may also be some biological factors - there is a biological benefit for men to try to be polygamous (trying to pass along their genes as best as possible) while simultaneously requiring women to be monogamous (males that did this are more likely to pass along their genes as well if their mates are mating with only them). So biologically it would make some sense for males to be more sex obsessed, however a species where the females were entirely uninterested in sex probably would survive.

I think lower percentages of women masturbating is most influenced by our culture, but also somewhat impacted by biology. Of course, every human behavior can basically be described this way.

For a small sampling of how much culture has scared some of the fun out of masturbation for women, check out all the comments on this article on women masturbating (apparently 92% of 23-30 y/o women did in 2008, n = 1000): http://jezebel.com/5107639/92-of-women-m...-often-do-they-do-it

Denner (233) I think BadMrFrosty said it.....some women/girls do it frequently, some now and then - and then again some rarely...ect.

He is right. Seriously.

Men's Health Magazine: Health and Sexual Benefits of Masturbation

I know that isn't the most reputable source, but it was the first one I found after a quick search. I've seen similar stories reported in more reputable publications.

No offense intended, but "need" is a pretty definitive word, your cited "study" notwithstanding. I'm sure Congressman Akin could find a "study" which cites that women don't get pregnant from rape. Or that drinking too much water causes cancer.

And what I got most from the article was that it's okay to whack off and there were things to learn from it that can play a role in your sex life.

It's just that masturbation is a pleasure act, not a medical act. In fact, a man's orgasm is not the same as his ejaculation. Though you cannot have an ejaculation without an orgasm, it is possible to have an orgasm without the ejaculation.

And no physician I have ever talked to has told me I need to ejaculate ever X days (or hours or anything) for the health of my body. Yes it feels good and like everyone else I like to spill the seed, but "need"?

Toadsith (48) REPLY TO #13 - jberryl69 :

True, "need" might be an overly strong word, but I don't believe it is hugely debated that masturbation (keeping in mind the whole all things in moderation adage) is generally beneficial.

In regards to "no physician I have ever talked to" - again, yes, I doubt you'd ever get something so specific like the recommendation of changing a car's oil every 5k miles, but lack of being informed by a doctor doesn't negate somethings validity as a health recommendation. Frankly, there's a lot that doctors don't get around to recommending. I think it is because they are too busy going to the bank, but who knows? So - does one "need" to masturbate? Probably not. Should one with certain, if not exactly specified, regularity? Probably, yes.

Of course, it has to be recognized how little we (humans) know about our physiology. It has oft been cited (I read it in Mary Roach's Stiff) that a visit to the doctor's office didn't achieve a measured chance of actually improving a patient's health until the 1920s. Thousands of years of health care and before then, you were basically guaranteed to be worse off after visiting a doctor until the 1920s. So, despite all the strength given to doctors' opinions, they've really only been marginally good at this for about 90 years.

So, the whole medical opinion regarding masturbation could change again, perhaps not back to the "it's the work of the devil" era, but maybe in the future humans will be living in some monkish realm of abstinence. Who knows? My point was simply, that there has been some science supporting the claim of masturbation being good for the body, and shouldn't so quickly be dismissed with a sarcastic "Seriously?".

RustyJ (145) I don't think so and I have only my personal experiences to support the idea. But others seem to agree.

Sorry Toadsith, I am by nature sarcastic but it wasn't a dismissal as much as I wanted him to expound as you have done. So if you read this GPL, I apologize if you were offended by my one word question.

As far as your marginally good, sometime around 1950 my tonsils grew back and the medical remedy at that time was to zap them with massive dosages of X-rays. Opps - turns out that treatment is highly carcinogenic.

DISCLAIMER: I have no objections to masturbation by either sex, either manually or with an instrument of choice. I, in fact, do so even with my ED (frustrating), so please lets everyone whack away - it might even be good for you.

Toadsith (48) REPLY TO #16 - jberryl69 :

Thanks for the clarification about the intent of the original remark - I misinterpreted it as not only incredulous but also somewhat accusatory. Therein lies the occasional failings of communicating strictly through a written medium. Btw, here is a study in the British Journal of Urology International (a peer reviewed journal) that linked masturbation as a means for lowering the chance of prostate cancer. I really should have done a better search the first time. (All I had to do was check in with my favorite science rag, The New Scientist.)

I'm always amazed to hear about people's experiences with X-Rays because the technology was used so liberally that it was silly. My absolute favorite is the absurd X-Ray Shoe Fitting machines. These days your experience would be easy grounds for a lawsuit.

I should note that I assumed you had nothing against masturbation for anyone - I can't imagine any contributing member of this site having such opinions. I do hope that some quality science in the near future will help you with the ED as it has so many others, but I commend you for persevering despite it - so many don't even bother trying.

As I mentioned to Graymane recently, my motivation for porn and masturbation has waned somewhat this past month. I have pills for it but even that didn't help my head - got the woody but not the eroticism needed to push me over the edge. And for some reason it doesn't bother me all that much. I figure there is always tomorrow. I can't totally blame it on ED since I've got other physical issues which I find at best distracting (and sometimes painful). But then, isn't that life?

marcdc1 (165) Seems to me in general women have a lower sex drive. It seems to me if we polled the membership of PU we would see an over representation of males over females.
