In search of answers, Buzz Feed asked people of all ages, genders, and sexualities to describe the nitty-gritty of how they actually masturbate. "I typically start by reading stories on Literotica or maybe I will look up porn on the web (hell, sometimes both).

Masterbate video chats-79

I generally start off a little slow, but it usually only takes me like three minutes to come so sometimes I go three times in a row really fast.

I've never enjoyed penetration so this is all I need."—24/F/Asexual "Mostly 'traditional' masturbation for a man. The main area of focus is jacking my dick, but I use my other hand to play with my nipples and my balls. When I have the time, I love running my free hand over the hair on my chest and abdomen while I touch myself.

Always incognito on Google Chrome."—21/F/I don't discriminate "When I feel like masturbating, I'll usually pull up a porn site or a cam site and watch that to get myself hard.

Many times I'll just go to a video I've watched dozens of times or I'll just think about one of my partners."Since I'm alone, there's no reason to keep my mess-aversion in check, so many times I just stand over the toilet bowl while I jack my penis vigorously.

#Not Throwing Away My Shots"—23/M/Straight "Sometimes I like to masturbate in the stalls of a busy bathroom at my university.

There is something thrilling about the possibility of someone knowing what I am doing, so it is fun to do it when the bathroom is really busy.

I try to wait until a good part before letting myself finish.

Then I shut my computer and finish again by grinding on a pillow."—23/F/Gay "I usually start by scrolling through Tumblr and touching myself through my underwear, and then when I start to actually get turned on I switch to porn.

I stop, and wait to get a little harder, then wank til I cum."—29/M/Straight "I get my adrenaline pumping by blasting some Kanye, Nicki, or Hamilton, usually 'My Shot,' or if I'm looking for something more upbeat 'The Schuyler Sisters,' and do a quick workout.

After that, I grab some lube, head over to Tumblr to find some free porn that won't pose risk of viruses like most porn sites, and beat the meat.

But my tastes are pretty specific and this is hard, so I usually revert back to the old ones I know will work.
