I'm sitting here bored and trying to remember some of the old websites I used to go visit...

and while on collegeclub I found this....

Love Yourself...
We spend so much of our time trying to make others happy that we forget who is truly important, ourselves. We need to be conscious of our needs and our vices. More time should be spent on making us happy. And what better way is there than masturbation? I know a lot of you are probably snickering and are wondering I chose to write about this, but masturbation is a great thing.
Most of us claim to be in control of our sexual selves and assert that we know what we want. Well, how come no one wants to talk about masturbation? We'll blab to everyone in hearing distance about how we hooked up, how many times we've had sex in the last week, what new sexual position we discovered and that menage trois, but won't let ourselves talk about our own self indulgence. Something that is so natural and stimulating is seen as a sinful demeaning act.

What is it that prevents us from talking about it? Maybe it stems from our childhood when we spent adolescent years hiding from our parents in fear of getting caught. Maybe this transferred into our repression. This then shifted over into those immature high school years when no one could possibly admit that he or she played with themselves. Admitting would lead to trauma induced by classmates, classmates who secretly participated in this act in the depths of their own bedrooms.

Well, we are in college now. But this comes with worry as well. Dorm rooms are small, and gossip is rampant. Now instead of worrying about our parents, there is constant worry about a roommate encounter. But, as humans we are resourceful, and our sexual drives are immense. Of course we will find a way to do this. Unfortunately, people skip classes, come home unexpectedly and we never know just what could happen. If you are one of those unlucky people that have been caught, gossip disappears fast, and really there is nothing to be ashamed about.

"The ones that deny it probably do it more," says Eden, a 23-year-old student.

Now that our innermost fears have been dealt with, masturbation holds many benefits. First of all, how are we ever going to know what we want in bed if we don't explore our own bodies? If we experiment with ourselves we can be more receptive and confident when there are other people with us.

"By the time I lost my virginity I was a pro," says Lindsay, a 21-year-old UWM student.

If we are sexually active then we can use masturbation to notice anything out of the ordinary. Because we are exploring our bodies we'll know what is normal and what is unordinary.

A benefit also is the risk of STD transmission is nominal. It is possible, however, during mutual masturbation. If you've just had a wild encounter with lots of touching, it's probably a good idea to wash your hands as well. But, just being alone with that tub of Vaseline doesn't put you at risk.

But what about that stigma that once you are in a relationship, masturbating is an insult to your sexual partner? Wrong again. Masturbation is important regardless of situation. By participating in this act we may discover new pleasure zones, therefore improving our sex lives. Our partners should not feel insufficient if they catch their mate masturbating, it is completely natural.

The main point, which should be evident by now, is that we need to masturbate in order to truly know ourselves. It provides great freedom and we can do it as much and as little as we want.

"I masturbate at least once a day," says Aaron, a 20 year-old student. "There is no way in hell anyone can go through life without masturbating."

So next time you're home alone and bored, just think, there's something you could be doing.

And guess where it comes from....

that's right...UW-Milwaukee's Dan Bialzik
