  • Haha wow... I beat all of you as far as age when I first masturbated. I was like 4 or 5 when I first did it. I didn't know what I was doing. All I knew was that it felt really good and my parents actually saw me do it once because we were all on the couch and I got myself off but I mean I didn't really know what it was I was doing until I was like 9 and I got the talk.

  • I think it's a personal question so I won't answer directly. I guess when they feel the urge to do so, it's natural, but I guess too early would be a little freaky and not during the hormonal period would be somewhat abnormal. but there isn't a set age to which it is deemed appropriate either, I guess whenever one is ready.

  • dude I was 3/4 I don't know I remember my mom telling me that's something personal and that if I wanted to do that I had to go to my room. So.. I always just did it secretly up to this day. haha. the weird thing is I do it the same way now as I did then. crazy.

  • i was 4 or 5. I remember having my first orgasm around 5. I have a very strong memory of me thinking the kid's equivalent of "what the f*** was that?" I was hooked ever since. it took me several "go to your room" talks before I learn about discreetness and "time and place"

  • I was like 9ish where i would rub up against things accidentally and it would feel good, like sliding down those poles at the playground. At age 12, i knew what i was doing.

  • I was 12 I think, maybe 13. seriously, that's a normal age to start experimenting. I think a lot of people get curious around that age.

  • Technically, fetus.

    "Ultrasonographic observation of a female fetus' sexual behavior in utero." American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology 1996

    I guess it varies what age but I guess (and it's a pure guess) around 12 most have learnt or are soon to learn about it.

    Being the nerd I am my first time was an 'experiment' after learning about it in school. I was wondering what the hell and gave it a shot. Thought I was having a heart attack at first and didn't do it again for like 6 months.

  • Pfff get out of here you children. I started at 3. Probably one of the best feelings I had at the time. I couldn't shoot though. Too young for that.

  • I found around age 6 that playing with my dick felt really good and would do it until I had a dry cum. I started squirting about age 12 and enjoyed making myself squirt.

  • I'm really surprised at how old some of you guys were.

    I started 'full time' when I was maybe... 9 or 10, but I always 'experimented' with it all when I was younger.

  • That's a personal question, but I started to fap when I was in grade school, probably 9 when I started to watch porn.

  • I remember when I was about 12 years old I was flicking through channels during the night and I stumbled upon a porn channel. For a bit I was just watching, and eventually I ended up masturbating and have pretty much daily ever since. Best method of stree relief :p
