Would you consider masturbation an inherently homosexual activity?
After all, in the case of men, you're stroking and stimulating a cock, making it feel good. I know in the case of heterosexuals they are most likely fantasizing about a woman - but I'd argue the physical act of stimulation is 9 times out of 10 more responsible for the orgasm.
Seems to me this explains a lot about the roots of homophobia and masculine fear of homosexuality - for the great, vast majority of men the very root of the sexual experience is homosexual, not heterosexual.
I think str8 guys love their penises, too, OP.
Just not anyone elses.
Precisely, OP. I've thought this myself for years. Some fundie preachers say pretty much the same thing as their basis for why one shouldn't masturbate.
What do you think all those soccer Moms are doing with their copies of "Fifty Shades of Grey?"
Really, op? You're really gonna make me respond to this?
OP...No. Everybody does it.
No - bringing yourself to orgasm is not gay, but doing so with another of the same sex is.
Suppose you masturbate with an artificial pussy? That is, you stuff a jar with warm, oil-soaked bits of rags and use your finger to poke a tunnel in the middle of the wet mess. Then get to work.
Females masturbate too. Is the whole human race homosexual?
OP...masturbation is exploring and releasing one's feeling of sexuality. Homosexuality is being attracted to another human being of the same sex--not being attracted to your own genetalia.

Mary, OP, I had a sister who claimed to be able to cum hands-free whilst being rogered by Latino cagemeat. She is the 10%!
No, OP. You're ridiculous.
This is the dumbest thread of 2012
$18 for this??
I know gays love to seduce straight guys, but this belief is frigging ridiculous.
Straight women must be lesbians.
No, because you're fantasizing about an object of desire when you do it. If that object is female it is not a gay activity.
OP...not everyone is gay no matter how much they wank.
Certainly not saying that jerking off makes you gay. Just that you're arguably engaging in homosexual conduct, totally different. Should have realized I'd set off the moron literalists who love to stomp around threads acting like know-it-alls.
I think you make an interesting point, OP.
All guys (whether gay/straight/bi) love big dicks (whether it's their own or experimenting with buddies as kids or comparing sizes during gym showers). Wasn't there an article posted not too long ago that revealed that one of the biggest search queries men used when searching for porn was big dicks?
I know from conversations with them that straight guys are obsessed with comparing their dick size to other men's, so I'm not in the least bit surprised that would be the top search query.
There's a female lesbian comic, Ashley Linder, who makes the exact same point in one of her jokes.
I think most of you are misunderstanding the OP's point, which I agree with (although his wording could've been clearer).
I've had men and women jack me off...and it feels very different. The hand's texture, muscle, intention, and overall energy feels quite opposite when given by either a man or a woman.
I'm certain for SOME straight guys the feeling they've grown accustomed to with respect to their own hand on their cock is one so private and enjoyable that ANOTHER male hand would be almost too similar, and jarring, to them, and that self-intimacy can't (and shouldn't) be replaced or substituted with a different male hand than their own.
I think that's what the OP was saying. The root of homophobia for SOME straight guys might be this very basic concept of another man not deserving the right to touch their junk, as such right is reserved only for themselves.
The OP and  are ridiculous. Most sex actually happens in the brain
[quote]Most sex actually happens in the brain
Which is ACTUALLY triggered by nerve endings in the PENIS, which feels different in the hands of a woman vs a man...and is tied to other intimacy issues in THE BRAIN...
Ridiculous R20, who is convinced you don't get it.
Sometimes when I can't fall asleep and have gone to bed before I'm tired, I lay awake in my bed stroking my big cock. When everyone is asleep I put on my slippers and go down to the kitchen to get some Crisco from the pantry. Father keeps the house cold at night. As I slip back under my blankets I look at the stars and wonder how many other guys out there are enjoying the same experience.
Mastubation is not homosexual conduct. Webbie, just ban the dumbfucker/OP already!
If your fantasizing about fucking a dude or looking at nude guys--then yes, masturbation is a homosexual act.
Someone can have sex with a person and fantasize about being with someone else, to make the sex act possible. It is quite common, either by straight couples who are interested in sex but not the person they are with, homosexual couples who are interested in sex but not with the person they are with, and straight hustlers interested in getting paid for gay sex, or homosexual guys looking for legitimacy in a heteronormative sense by getting involved with a woman.
[quote]The root of homophobia for SOME straight guys might be this very basic concept of another man not deserving the right to touch their junk, as such right is reserved only for themselves.
This statement is equally ridiculous as the OP's post. EVERY MAN MASTURBATES, period, except for a TINY percentage of COMPLETELY fucked-up Catholic types (less than 1% of the American populace). It has NOTHING to do with sexual orientation, PERIOD.
Let it go, hon.
Yes, OP. Also salivating, self-flaggelation and wiping your ass.
You're really reaching OP. Stop being a desperate straight chaser. Not a good look.
R26, you are really stupid to think I'm saying masturbation equals homosexuality, after reading that.
Really really stupid.
The act itself is a tension relief mechanism. What makes it sexual is the visual stimulation (mental images, magazine pictures, porn clips or scenes, fetish stuff like underwear or shoes, etc.) men use in order to climax.
Stop trying to make gayness the center of the world, OP. It s not.
That 'masturbation is / makes you gay' rethoric is so 'everytime you masturbate god kills a kitten' or 'you can go blind from masturbating too much!'.
Masturbation IS homosexual behavior! Give that masturbator a lobotomy!
[quote] Stop trying to make gayness the center of the world, OP. It s not.
I've never understood why so many guys use lube when they jack off. Personally, I like the rough, sandpaper friction of my unlubed hand.
Isn't a str8 guy washing his ass an inherently gay thing?
OP you sound like a Jehovah's witness. That is exactly what they think and ban the activity for being homosexual.
Depends on how deeply he washes it r37
Correct, R39 and the number of soapy fingers entering the veil of pleasure. One can be considering perfunctory.
I'm a just a washin' my azz, quite deeply.
If you cum in the potato salad, does that make you a chef?
I once masturbated with a guy who was HIV poz. He was one one sofa, iMon another. We didn't touch, but seeing him cumpoz sent me over the edge. I'd like to touch a poz man, jerk him and have him cum ON me, Is that wrong?
R43, you need counseling, dude. Your life and health are in danger.
Masturbation is a homosexual experience for me, but certainly not for everybody. I suspect it gives me much more pleasure than a heterosexual person. I love to watch myself in a mirror while I massage my hairy chest and just enjoy my whole body. I love the feel of my body and especially the way it feels to fondle and stroke my genitals.
Charlie's from the UK
Masturbation is a male thing, aparently. I've watched horses and other male animals masturbate to orgasm (No, I'm not sexually into animals...I was raised on a horse farm/cattle ranch).
Female primates such as the Bonobo masturbate.
I think you raise an interesting theory, OP. I Googled your original statement and other message boards have had similar conversations.
