10 Fun Facts You Didn't Know About Masturbation

Masturbation. A night in for one. Playing with your hand or flicking the bean. Eurgh. Bean. Whatever you want to call it, you're aware of it and you probably do it yourself. The history of masturbation isn't exactly a pleasant one as it used to be considered destructive to living a good and moral lifestyle; so it didn't just make you a bad person in the eyes of society, but it was also thought to damage your state of mind. All that power in one hand... Of course, masturbating doesn't cause you any physical harm (unless you're a bit too, erm, vigorous) and it most definitely doesn't mess with your psychological state in the way that the Victorians believed that it did. But don't worry because it's common, it doesn't make you dirty and it's instinctive behaviour for both men and women. But here are some fun facts that you might not have known about the act of masturbation.

10. Humans Aren't The Only Species To Masturbate

Did you think that you were the only living species on this planet that has needs, sexual needs? Just because you have a conscious, the ability to think rationally and walk and talk, does make you any different from the likes of birds, apes and horses. That's right, you all have one thing in common: you love to jerk off. Whenever these animals feel like they're in the mood for some lovin', they'll just do it, there and then. They don't even care if anyone is watching. And that's definitely the biggest difference between you and these animals; it's not that you can't fly, it's because you don't like an audience.
