I'm not sure if I'm masturbating "properly" can you help?

Question - (30 November 2007) 6 Answers - (Newest, 2 December 2007)
A male United Kingdom age 22-25, *ing writes:

When I was young, I literally had no idea 'how' masturbation was 'meant' to be done. I wasn't aware of the conventional method, so perhaps in my naivety I just did what felt good.

When masturbating, I would lie on my back and with the palm of my hand rub my penis against my stomach. I am worried that this has caused my penis long-lasting damage.

At the age of 14-15, I kind of became aware that what I was doing wasn't 'normal' compared to other kids so I went ahead and started doing it the conventional way.

Now, I am just slightly worried as I feel that the time for me to start having sex is approaching and I'm worried about whether I will be able to.

I don't have a problem getting or maintaining an erection and I'm pretty well blessed in terms of size.

Just some info and then maybe if some of this seems odd then you could inform me?

-When lying down my pens points towards my face/shoulder area, however there is very little upward direction if you know what I mean.

-When standing up or kneeling down my erection points slightly upwards/sky wards. Could this have been caused by my stupid masturbation technique?

I'm sorry this is a long post but I guess I am just feeling really paranoid about things. Am I worrying about nothing, or have I got a problem and if so, what should I do?!?

Please help me to put my mind at rest. :(

Thanks for the answers guys. This is a very useful site as the users are knowledgebale and sensitive, while of course it's a a great outlet to discuss issues that would be hard to do so in person.

It seems everything is O.K. I'll try to stop worrying. Guess when the oppurtunity arises I'll find out.

Hopefully I can report back with some sucess.

Richard_EMids agony auntHi buddy. Your old masturbation method would not cause any problem or injury or defect. And from what you describe about yourself now everything sounds perfectly OK and normal.

Don't worry you aren't the only one, many boys don't start in the conventional way. And when you start getting intimate with teenage girls you'll find what you did is nothing. Some will pull it, bend it, squash it and hurt it before you show them how to treat it more carefully. It doesn't do any damage, just hurts.

Don't worry any more.

Richard

You're fine. Everything sounds normal. If you're worried, though, go to your doctor and get a physical. You don't have to explain your "method," just have him do a routine check up.

Hi, sorry. To clarify I'm sure I'm doing it(Mastrubation) right now, I just pretty much know I wasn't in the past.

Cheers.
