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?"

No - bringing yourself to orgasm is not gay, but doing so with another of the same sex is.

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%!

I know gays love to seduce straight guys, but this belief is frigging ridiculous.

Straight women must be lesbians.

by Anonymousreply 1212/24/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1312/24/2012

OP...not everyone is gay no matter how much they wank.

by Anonymousreply 1412/24/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1512/24/2012

I think you make an interesting point, OP.

by Anonymousreply 1612/24/2012

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?

by Anonymousreply 1712/24/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1912/24/2012

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 [20] are ridiculous. Most sex actually happens in the brain

by Anonymousreply 2112/24/2012

[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...

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!

by Anonymousreply 2412/24/2012

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.

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.

R26, you are really stupid to think I'm saying masturbation equals homosexuality, after reading that.

Really really stupid.

by Anonymousreply 3012/24/2012

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!'.

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?

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.

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.

It's a well known fact that straight men do not use their own, masculine hands to masturbate, they use the hands of female mannequins they buy from people who work at department stores
