So, naturally, we asked our community to tell us about their journey to masturbation. I was on the playground climbing a pole and it felt really good!

They say that even infants are often found stimulating themselves , knowing that it feels good, and not knowing why. While we're inclined to not really "count" that, probably most people remember the first time they realized what it was they were doing, and what they liked about it.

You may be excited, confused, or intrigued. And once you realized what it feels like to masturbate and what was happening, you were probably just looking for new ways to do it again and again. What was it like masturbating for the first time? I remember I was young and just fantasizing about a date with a boy and I ended up humping my pillow.
