    First, to John: When someone uses the phrase “why the fuck,” you know what a worthy representative of “jesus christ and christianity” they really are. Now to Dr. Suzy: Thank you for your wit and wisdom. Please don’t be put off by these Christian Fundamentalist lunatics who use the word “fuck” more often than you do. We need you!

    Dear Dr. Susan: In recent years I learned about the atrocities religious leaders have imposed upon us for over a millenium and how obsolete many superstitions and preconceptions about sex, masturbation and sexual partner biases are. It took at least two terrorist attacks like the Oklahome City bombing in 1995 and the September 11, 2001 attacks that destroyed the twin towers to wake up our population to evolve from these now detested “chastity” proposals that has ultimately crushed a typical person’s self-esteem. One dumb-assed auto-parts dealer even ragged that “God makes us old so that we don’t need to put a gun to our heads!” What “purity” really did was contaminate our souls with shame, fear and ultimately hatred, prejudice and bigotry. Today, the only way to purify yourself is to unlearn the preconceptions that were taught or imposed upon you in the first place. As Frank Oz explained when performing as Yoda in Star Wars, “…you must unlearn what you have learned.” When I was 11 years old, almost 12, I discovered the pleasures of masturbation when I felt an unexpected need to experinece what would happen if I rubbed or grinded my penis in any way. That was my bery first experience. I didn’t even learn what was sex! I was never taught a single grain of truth about sex. Only when I turned 15 after which I was in 10th grade was it when I first learned about sex when a trio of girl classmates began fondling me around lunch hour, back in 1987. In 1989 I began to learn about the dreaded disease, AIDS and by 1990, when I was in college studying AutoCAD, nearly all my classmates were discussing about sex and masturbation. No less than half-dozen women my age developed attractions towards me. Two of them offered me their hands for courtship. After I left college, in 1992, by summer I had my very first sexual dream one night. After that first night, I felt depressed not sure if it was normal but some of my self-righteous, prejudiced family members still clung stubbornly to what was earlier considered to be “the truth.” 10 years later I attended a sexual education chat with a group of handicapped companions. A doctor who was part of the conference assured me that it is normal. The sexual therapist, Myrna Medina, who conducted the conference, affirmed to me that the religious leaders are cruel and are no better morally or compassionately than any radical extremists and terrorists. Thankfully, 95% of Americans today have considered masturbation to be normal and healthy. Even Cuban exiles like the sex education therapist, lawyer and psychiatrist, Dr. Nancy Álvarez affirmed masturbation to be a normal part of a teenage boy or girl’s development as they grow into adults. Really, it is no longer “taboo!” The preconceptions that it causes me to grow hairs on my palms or to go completely blind or become insane is pure obsolete, antiquated, invalid and just-plain egotistic garbage! Today religious leaders must respect the opinions and rights of individuals… otherwise, they will never know the day that an Al Qaeda extremist or an unsatisfied hate-crime radical would plant a bomb in their church that would wipe them out with no mercy,along with the congregation. The more religious beliefs you impose on others, the more the terrorists keep on planning their next propaganda. In other words, voilence only spawns violence… garbage in, garbage out! So the more you smite a boy for doing what is wrongfully considered a sin, the less he will listen to you. And boy the consequences are deadly and hate crimes are no less frequent amongst the results apart from peaceful protests and ever growing medical research that proves the opposite of the preconceptions, misinterpretations and egotistically puritan atrocities that has littered our society with radical movements and hate crimes. Even more amazing it is how religious leaders have actually raped women for their own pleasure while chastening the general population??? And the Mormons are no exception! Child molestation, sexual abuse and rape became noticeable amongst those who were once unconditionally considered to be “pure!” So for those who thought about the atrocities against masturbation now have to mature, wise up and grow up and learn the truth. Before you teach your son (or daughter) how to masturbate, you have to wait until he (or she) reaches puberty and develops his body into a man or woman. The subject should be kept confidential and away from kids until they reach the age mature enough to learn and understand about sex. Unlike masturbation, notice that chastity actually has made our “mature” adults insane, mental health problems including obsessiveness, compulsions and mood swings that put effects caused by drugs to shame. Prostate cancer, for instance, doesn’t develop in the man’s body naturally because of age. Chastity has actually resulted in needless cases of death from cervical, anal, prostate and breast cancer, especially during the earlier centuries in America. And you thought tobacco was bad, huh? Yep, it still is! I hope that your website can raise awareness against the prejudice that ate us all alive. Not to mention, the medical researches that prove to The Bible (according to and depending on the religion one was raised to believe in) much the contrary. Even I placed myself into exile and in hiding, I observed a changing world more aware of the possibilities though which we continue to learn as we age until the time we are buried in the grave. Take care! Kind regards,Angel Pérez

    I won the runner-up prize once in Good Vibrations’ National Masturbation Month art contest with a piece called “Happy Friggin'”. I’ll e-mail it to you. They sent me a gift certificate to their shop, and I bought a couple books with it. One was The History of Sex. It’s good. I keep it in the bathroom along with Ben Akerly’s X-Rated Bible.

    Well I never heard about masturbation ever being anything other than a consensual act. And if there is an exception to that, then that individual is burdened with an exceptionally bad cases of schizophrenia, and masturbation is the least of their worries. As far as it being a dirty act, picking your nose and using the toilet is also dirty and after all the mentioned acts, a civil person will wash their hands afterwards, especially if cooking a meal. There is a greater chance of spreading illness if the restaurant worker either picks his nose or does not wash their hands after using the restroom . No STDS or unwanted children ever came from masturbation. And no rejection is associated with it. So as long as it done in the privacy of a person’s own residence, why would any sane individual concern themselves with anyone else’s personal activity ?

    Dear Dr. Block, Great article about the world’s most popular pastime. And thanks so much for your personal testimonial: so hot! It gave me an excuse to whack off (as if I ever need one!). I wish I were there, licking your fingers, too. Then again, I have considerable, and frequent, love for my own hand, and perhaps shouldn’t risk making it jealous. After all, it’s always been there for me, even when no one else has been. Remember: when you make love with yourself, you’re with the one who loves you the most. Thanks for informing me that it is National Masturbation Month. Believe me, I will not forget to celebrate, often and with passion. I’ll even include you in that pornocopia between my ears (The Best Movie Ever Made, Coming Soon, to the Theater of Your Mind!), imagining you performing your solitary labor of love. Oh, Christ…here I go again…where’d I put that Vaseline?! Sincerely,James Feltus

    I love your writing on male circumcision, “child abuse”. You said it. You can’t call your self a doctor if you circumcise babies, I would say your a sick person if you would cut apart a infant or anyone’s genitals without their consent. Rick

    Thanks for this MayMasturbation essay. It’s terrific. I am especially grateful for the Twain quote and the info about the origin of oath-taking (testify). And for testifying on the bizarre brutality of circumcision. Be well, Jeanne/ Vermont
