[Intriguing] – Tenga’s Report on Masturbation
If you are a sex geek like me, you find the company Tenga Self-Pleasure Report fascinating.
What are your thoughts on this report?
Lots of info in the report. And as you can see, most men and a lot of woman masturbate at least occasionally. I think it is important to talk to your spouse and have an understanding that it is ok to
do, but not cheat each other out of full sex or intimacy.
Masturbation is just another part of sex that can be used for pleasure and relaxation. It doesn’t mean you don’t want your spouse at all, unless you are doing that and then not having sex with your spouse. It can fill the gaps of desire levels or energy levels and not leave one spouse feeling so horny or overwhelmed and unhappy they are getting enough sex.
It can be difficult for some couples to discuss, but as you get older, it gets easier. I think it is an important discussion to have.
Rather…exhaustive…report! I noticed there was no data (that I recall) on married vs. unmarried, plus I’m certain there was no indication of which unmarried people who masturbated were attempting to avoid actual sex until marriage. I also wonder, did the sex toy company do this research or did an outside scientific firm do it?
As a teenage girl 30 years ago, I was absolutely certain it was a horrible sin and every time I succumbed to the temptation (because my now-husband and I were so aroused by each other but waiting for marriage), I felt wracked with guilt and shame. What should someone have told me then?
NOW, Hubby and I find stimulation to be a good thing, no matter who does what to whom and it’s just all part of ML, but in the beginning of our marriage I had a lot of those guilt feelings left over and just couldn’t be comfortable talking about it at all. Actually pretty scary even to post this, despite how freely I can share on so many other topics.
