Male Masturbation/Time for masturbating

Advertisement


Question
I usually masturbate before bed but wonder if that is very common.  When do most guys masturbate?

Answer
Masturbating is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.  About half of male masturbation takes place at bedtime.  This is not only because males are likely to have more privacy then, but because orgasm tends to promote sleep.  Among younger males, another popular time is right after school.  Among older males, I think the evening is pretty popular.
