I'm new to this site. Pretty cool really. Anyway, how many of you guys here have friends that you can actually talk to about masturbation? I am very open sexualy and verbaly. Yet it is not a subject that comes up much between men. Other then in an awkward joking manner usually. (I work construction. Imagine that coming up at lunch break.) My girlfriend has said the same about women and masturbation. I was very surprised about that too. I grew up with zero talks about sex or masturbation from family members. Yet, I am very open myself. It's great that men can "chat" on the net about most any issue that they want to discuss. But in real life we find it difficult to speak about something that we all do and enjoy. And yes I realize due to Puritanism, social pressure etc. that it is considered not very exceptable. I have had two friends in my life I could talk about masturbation very openly and often. It was not really erotic but very cool to be able to say what I or they felt about this act or that. We could laugh about the ammount of times we have masturbated and or embarassing moments. Just as we all are doing when we read from this forum. Both my friends have moved. I miss the open discussions from masturbation to sex with our wives/girlfriends. It was details of our own intimate moments most men don't discuss.
