To Your Health

This morning on the way to work, I was listening to 89X. That, in itself, is not unusual. I listen every day and try to catch the news if I'm early enough. They talk about all kinds of stuff. Very funny show, and often very informative.

As I was saying, this morning I was tuned in while Dave, Chuck and Lisa were discussing women who believe their partner is cheating on them when they masturbate.


Am I one of the women who believe masturbation is cheating? No way!

But as they were discussing it further, other scenarios came out. It's not just sitting at home, watching a porno and whacking off. They debated about cyber sex and paying for porn, which, I agree is different from 'regular' masturbation. In fact, I would be a bit upset about that myself. (You can find tons of free porn online, why pay?)

Now, I'm no stranger to self-pleasure. My husband is no stranger to self-pleasure either. There are probably about four days per month that we do not have sex or masturbate. Mutual masturbation? Even better.

There's no problem if Owen pops a porno in the player. Come on, that's what they're there for. And he's got plenty to choose from. Go do your thing, dude.

I suppose there are just some things that are off limits in a relationship. I don't think masturbation should be one of them. Nor do I know anyone who thinks it should. Masturbation is not evil. It's not shameful. It's normal. It's healthy. It's a stress reliever. And best of all . . . it feels good.

I had a woman ask me about this... see she and her husband as very sexually active... yet he's secretly masturbating ALL THE TIME. Just about every night he'll wake up in the middle of the night and sneak out and do the deed... and sometimes during the day he will too...

Just like anything else in life, it's not a bad thing unless it becomes a problem in your life. If you're withholding sex from her AND masturbating... well the question has to be "why"?

I had another woman tell the story to me about how she walked in on her boyfriend doing the deed in the shower... She was very turned on by it and asked him if she could help him out... He got all freaked out by being discovered...

You know... maybe it's a little weird that women keep talking to me about their SOs masturbating...
