Masturbation/Prone Masturbation



I have a problem with Prone Masturbation. I was doing it ever since the second grade, and I can't stop. I tried abstaining from masturbating for about 3 days by using your site but I reverted back to prone. Please help me learn how to masturbate correctly.

Thank you very much.

Prone masturbation, masturbating by lying face down and thrusting the penis into or against something, is a cause of sexual dysfunctions in males.  You can give up prone masturbation.  Many males have done so after masturbating that way much longer than you.  You will have to go longer than three days.  Most males go seven, some longer, some shorter.  Please be determined not to go back to prone and to follow the advice about giving up prone masturbation on

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 in the world.
