Just how prevalent or permissible is jerking off in the military? I've heard different reports from several of my buddies who were in the military service. One str8 buddy of mine said that it's officially prohibited and punishable if discovered. Another str8 buddy (a recently released Marine) said that the soldiers used to joke about stopping every mile while on patrol in order to "beat their meat." On this site, I read a post by a former Navy guy that said that the guys on his ship would beat off regularly and openly in their sleeping quarters at night, not caring who saw them or heard them. So, can anyone give me an honest and definitive answer? Is there much JOing going on in the military service or not? In a related story.... Has anyone heard from our returning Iraq soldiers about any sexual activity (like jerking off or more) that our men engaged in while there? Just wondering.... Pleae note: I am former military myself, and I do not mean any disrespect in any way to our brave and valiant military men by asking these questions. Thanks!
