Masturbation or rubbing your genitals is a natural way to learn about your body. Some guys do it, and others don’t. Either way, it takes practice to find out what feels good and what doesn’t. Many guys need to feel aroused to be able to masturbate which may include for example: thinking of something sexual, watching a video or looking at photos in a magazine. Also, depending on your cultural or religious beliefs or myths about masturbation you may have heard about, you may feel uncomfortable with masturbating in general. As you begin to learn about what feels good and what doesn’t, you’ll be more comfortable with your body and be able to experience sexual pleasure.
