There are men
and women who enjoy masturbation for its own sake, even if not in
preference to sex with a partner. These people will opt to
bring themselves to climax regularly or occasionally despite the
presence of an active sexual partner. This is more common
among men and I have often been asked the inevitable question, 'Is
this wrong?' In short, no.
I find it rather sad
when masturbation within a relationship has to be carried out in
secret, but some men say their wives disapprove strongly and, in
fact, feel very threatened by what they perceive to be an unnecessary
indulgence. Guys either do it simply because they like it
quite separate to making love with their partners, or to supplement
what they see as an inadequate supply of sex.
Obviously, at times such
as pregnancy, physical absence and illness, masturbation is a useful
substitute but I see no reason for anyone who wants to masturbate
to have to feel guilty, regardless of the reason.
