Male Masturbation/masturbating

Question
Should I be able to masturbate with either hand?  I always do it right handed.  I've tried it left handed but it just doesn't feel good.

Answer
Most males masturbate with only one hand.  Some are able to switch hands.  It's probably better if you can but doesn't mean anything is wrong if you don't.  If you want to prepare your body to use the other hand, it helps to abstain from masturbating for 5-7 days.  After that your penis is more sensitive and will respond better to the touch of the other hand.
