Prone masturbation means to masturbate by lying prone (face down) and thrust the penis into or against something, like a mattress or pillow.  You have succeeded in deciding to give up prone masturbation forever.  Good job!  For most males, abstaining from masturbation for a week is enough to sensitize the penis to be able to reach orgasm from a new form of masturbation.  This is not true for everyone.  You might just need to abstain for a few more days and try again.  To learn more about prone masturbation and how to overcome it, see

I write from the point of view that masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary to sexual health. I am able to answer questions in all areas of sexuality.


I am the author of the web site and have been answering questions about sexuality (especially masturbation) from both males and females for over 13 years.

I have a Ph.D. in a field unrelated to sexuality from one of the leading educational institutions of the world.
