When I first started whacking off at the ripe old age of... oh... probably 2 months... I found that I needed to lube myself up in order to achieve any stimulation. This led to certain... ::ahem::... unpleasant experiences (shut up!). In any case, I soon found out how to manually pleasure myself without the use of a lube. I'm exclusively a "dry" masturbator now.

So I'm wondering... from the man who brought you the "Grow-ers & Show-ers" thread... which men masturbate with a lube, and which do it dry?

Originally wet only. Then I tried dry, but it led to drying of the skin and general discomfort. Now, most people would take the easy road and go back to the lube, but I just toughed it out and before long dry was just fine (and a whole hell of a lot cleaner, easier and more convenient). So now, almost exclusively dry, though lube every now and then (when I have time and can be sure nobody will hear the squishiness sound) is nice.

And, I can't believe I just posted that, squishiness and all. I don't know how you people do this so regularly.

This is fascinating.

Besides mess, are the sensations much different between wet and dry?

If you have your druthers, do you prefer wet or dry when someone else is, um, handling you?

Yeah, the sensations are different, for me, anyway. With lubricant, you can generally make long, harder strokes. But with dry, I use the loose skin of the shaft itself to provide the "smooth stroke" for stimulation. This limits the length and power of the stroke... so it's the difference between fewer, longer, and harder strokes, and more, shorter, softer strokes. In terms of reaching orgasm, I've never noticed much difference.

Never had someone else handling me, so I'll have to get back to you on that.

I've noticed the sensation is more intense when wet during the actual "procedure", but the climax is much weaker and less fulfilling than when dry. Plus there's the issue of clean-up.

Dry. It's more convenient, neater, and cheaper. Yes, I am a pragmatist at heart.

I go dry 100% of the time out of the shower. Now, when you say "wet", are saying WET as in just spit/water or "wet" as in baby oil/lotion? Cause WET as in water just SUCKS. In the shower im a bar soap guy all the way. Now about the handling by others part. WOMEN CAN NOT GIVE HAND JOBS!! I'm not gay, but I'd be willing to bet that a man would give a 10 times better hand job than a woman. I'm sure there are exceptions. And I'm sure we will hear them. But they will be lies. Women, ITS NOT A FRICKEN HAMMER and it aint an egg either. Gentle yet stern. Firm yet foregiving. O screw this, just spread 'em.

Wet 95% of the time. Lotion, baby oil or soap. Oh, or Wet (a single drop of this goes a loooong way.)

Started dry, then tried wet, now I'm mostly dry. I go wet for an occasional treat, but the mess is more trouble than it's worth most of the time.

Oh, and thinksnow, soap? What is your dick made out of, dude? Soap does bad things to Junior, so we avoid it.

Get yerself Abolene cold cream/makeup remover!

I was going to post a thread about this topic one day when I had the, er, balls to do it.

Folks, listen up! Hand jobs are great, and should be added to all sexual reportoires(sp?), both single and with partners! And dead0man, you are wrong. My wife LOVES to give me handjobs, and has learned to give me manual pleasure better than I can give myself. She is creative, attentive, teasing & pleasing. She takes me up to the point of orgasm and then makes me ride the edge forever, then once I think I'm going to go crazy, she picks up on my mood, and either goes slow and long, or fast and furious, and I enter an orgasm that can last for over 30 seconds. There is a book out there called "ESO: Extended Sexual Orgasm" Buy it! Through Kegels, timing, communication and practice practice practice you can have something else to do in bed that I find as sensory blowing as blowjobs. Fact. I consistently have HUGE orgasms from handjobs.

The lube that they got me using is called Abolene Unscented (face cleanser, or make-up remover or ???). It comes in a large 16oz jar with a blue lid. I have found it at Walgreens, a few King Soopers, and other small pharmacy-type places. It is half Vaseline, half parafin wax. The consistency is remarkably like vaginal lubrication, but it doesn't dry out. It is totally different than baby-oil, hand lotion, pure Vaseline, etc. It is great! (There is also a recipe in the ESO book for making your own, in case you can't find it at the store)

I like dry sometimes, but I find that the pleasure from using Abolene is well worth the added mess. After one or two tries, you can find the general amount that just adds, not takes away, feeling. You know that feeling you get when you first enter a woman (or guy, I guess)? That "OHHHHHHHYYEEESSSSSsssssss..."? Ya, it feels like that. Try it.

One of the main things to try with this stuff is going slow. Which I guess is the point of dead0man's complaint. My wife will take Mr. Happy and go slow and steady, with so many different techniques it would be hard to list them all. Here are a few: make an 'O' with your finger and thumb and start at the head and slowly go to the base, when you hit the base, her (your) other hand starts at the top and then goes down, repeat. Or she'll hold both hands, one on top of the other, and make a tunnel that I can either thrust into, or she'll do the work- sometimes she'll start with 1 slow, then 1 fast, then 2 slow, then 2 fast, etc. up to 10 each, then back down. By the end of that I'm groaning and moaning, begging her to finish me off.

Just as I can learn to rythmically rub slowly and lightly around the sides of her clit, she can learn not to treat my dick like a hammer. And going solo with this stuff allows you to do many more things than just your up-and-down, finish the job stroke. You can experiment, then grab her hands and show her how.

Handjobs: the underated sex.

I've done it dry all my life, except when in the shower of course. I think people with plenty of skin on the shaft can do it that way. People who were cut too short probably can't since there's no extra skin when at full attention.

Funny Story:
I started when I was very young by having mock sex with stuffed animals that would produce an orgasm (no, I didn't have any goat stuffed animals). There was no ejaculation though, I guess I started before I hit puberty. The first time there was ejaculation though, I thought I broke it and was afraid to touch it for weeks after that.

And that's your dose of TMI for today.

Oh does that bring back memories. Not the goat stuffed animal part, but the "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT" part. Thought I knew it all, next thing I know I'm checking the ceiling for spots.

Er...98% dry, 2% wet (lotion, lubes mostly. Soaps and shampoos make it sting afterwards).

As you were.

Soap has always worked just fine. I'm not saying use Lava or lye-soap or something, but Ivory, Dove or Irish Spring works just fine. You aren't humping the bar, m'man, just using the sudsy-goodness to help things along when the mood strikes you. Shampoo works, too, FTM.

Eeeeeowch! It burns, it burrrrrns!

A nice, wet masturbation, please, but not too soggy, thank you. Enough to allow the hand to glide without grabbing or sticking.

When I was just starting out soft cloth was good enough.

Now I prefer KY, a mild, non-scented hand lotion or spittle .

And for the record, I really like it when my partner gives me a hand/blow job. But then, who wouldn't?

Medical professional checking in here, gang.

Soap is fine, just wash it off after. I've seen some nasty alkali burns with guys who just zipped up after and went on their way.

Beware using too much saliva too long with a lot of friction. Spit has amyases, lipases, and proteases that do start digesting tender dermal and mucosal tissue.

I masturbate dry.

I've never understood how anyone could use a lube to masturbate. It feels wrong, it is messy, ind if you use the wrong lube, it can hurt.

I have to say I go dry 95% of the time; the other 5% I'll lube up with some WetTM when I'm waxing the tadpole.

I have to say I go dry 95% of the time when I'm flying solo. The other 5% I'll lube up with some WetTM when I'm waxing the tadpole after my partner has already climaxed. If I've already got lube on my johnson, I have to keep it lubed in order to get off, otherwise the friction can be painful as the lube dries. For some reason, I'm unable to have an orgasm through intercourse or getting head; I just stay rock hard for a long, long time. Great for my partner, not so great for me.

I feels right to me. There are fewer things less sexy than a dry woman or a dry hand. Why risk friction burn?

If you're whacking off in the shower, I would recommend a conditioner over shampoo. Preferably one of those non-scented conditioners... there was one time when Lil' SPOOFE (and my left hand) were left smelling like vanilla and jasmine.

BUT... if all you've got is shampoo, I've found that - strangely - Head (no pun intended) & Shoulders performs nicely. Smells a tad strong, but it's nice and slippery.

You impugn my dignity here boy. While I pride myself on blowjobs, I would like to think I can give a mean hand job. I understand that it requires teaching, but y'know, I'm a damn attentive learner with enough of a sadist streak to keep a guy on the edge for a good half hour or so.

Its called communication. Here, I'll demonstrate "Harder... harder...ohhhhyesss...goddamn....mmm...oh,oh,oh...littlefasterlittlefaster...please..."

Try it sometime and if you are with a woman of any worth at all she'll adjust to you, applying the pressure you like in the way that you like best. (And beyond that all guys are different and there is a learning curve that cannot even be started until you tell me what you like. As intuative as I am, I am not a mind reader and while groans and moans are fung "UNggghhghghhhh..." is hardly informative about my technique.)

As for the question, I don't go solo and I'll ask my guy when he gets home. (*grin* He'll love what I'm discussing online today.
"Let me get this straight hon, you talk about blowjobs with random strangers?"
"Yup, and by the way sweetie, how do you masturbate... there's a poll on my boards."
"Anyone call you a slut yet today?"
"Love you too.")

If I'm squeezing one out real quick or right before bed, then I go dry.

If I have some time and don't mind having to clean up, I always use lube.

Hrm.... I go 50/50 here... sometimes with lube, sometimes dry. Yeah, dry can be good and the best part, you can lick your own spunk (if you're into such things ). But wet, wow... the intensity of the sensation is so much better. And differing your stroking rhythm feels so good. For me at least!

Always dry. I start with my bare hand, then use a Puffs tissue to climax and contain the mess. (Softest tissues on the market!) I tried KY jelly once, and while the stroking feels a little better, as Chief Crunch noticed, the actual orgasm is just blah.

Three words about dry:










Ow. Ow. And ow.

Lube was a revelation for me. I recommend the top-of-the-line Eros, which is made of silicone (safe for latex).


Oh, and thanks for the info, QTM - I, um, kinda discovered that problem the, um, hard way. OxyJr hates getting chafed.

From Hints from Heloise:

Quote:
To facilitate male masturbation and subsequent successful male seminal clean-up, use a handy-dandy prophylactic! You can even use a french-tickler if you want! Simply lubricate the penis liberally, then apply the condom...then you have the wet without the mess, and clean up is a SNAP!
Okay, just kidding about it actually being a real quote. If it had been, she would have reccomended using white vinegar, as that appears to be the multi-purpose solution for all Heloisian conundrums. But I have it on good authority that a well-lubed whacking within a rubber is well worth it. After all, it's not a trust issue, it's a "tired of Kleenex splotches on the dick" issue.

Wet if I'm in the shower. Dry if I'm using the method that involves applying pressure to the base of the penis with my finger while laying on my stomach. I only do this if I DON'T have an erection, go figure.

Eh, when I want to jerk off, I want to jerk off. I lube now and again as a special treat, but it is all about dry. Gimme orgasm now! Actually, I wrap him up in toilet paper to avoid spillage, too.
