Top 10 situations when most people masturbate from a recent survey of the flossy. audience.
One of the main reasons we started flossy. was to shift the conversation about masturbation from one that feels taboo, seedy or hypersexualised to one that integrates self-pleasure as a completely normal part of health. Experiences of self-pleasure can be about as unique as our fingerprints and there's certainly no "right" way to do it. As long as it feels good for you, then guess what - you're doing it right! Go you.
We surveyed over 2000 people in the flossy audience and you might be surprised to learn that only one of the top 10 reasons had any mention of masturbating when they feel "horny." The other top nine could easily have the word "masturbate" swapped out for "yoga" and you'd never know we were talking about self-pleasure.
So without further adieu, here are the top 10 reasons our audience reported for getting off.
1: "I'm horny..."
2: "Can't sleep..."
3: "I'm bored..."
4: "I'm stressed..."
5: "I'm procrastinating..."
6: "I don't have anywhere to be..."
7: "I stopped taking the pill..."
8: "I'm a little cold..."
9: "I have a headache..."
10: "I have period cramps..."
The biggest thing to remember when it comes to solo sex? There's absolutely no "should" when it comes to how or why you choose to get off. Self-pleasure (as shown by these 10 examples) can be a way to release, with side effects often being a deeper connection to our bodies.
So, we invite you to explore your self-pleasure why and when. The only rule? No judgement or shame about what you might find!
