Here’s the question you’ve been wondering since 10th grade. Do men masturbate more than women? Overall speaking, yes.
According to studies: 5% of women ages 25-29 engage in masturbation more than 4 times a week, while 20.1% of men do. The gap closes in for those who reported masturbating multiple times a month, with 21.5% of women ages 25-29 and 25.4% of men in that same age group. As we age, women masturbate at least 10-15 percentage points less than men in each category. The older we get, the more likely men and women are to report not masturbating at all, ever.
Many psychologists attribute this to a difference in sex drive between men and women. Men have incentive to have sex to pass along their genes. Women may be hard-wired to choose their partners carefully, because they can get pregnant. They are likely to be more attuned to relationship quality because they want a partner who will stay around to help take care of the child. They’re also more likely to choose a man with resources because of his greater ability to support a child.
Another theory about the difference in sex drive and masturbation habits: “Women want to talk first, connect first, then have sex,” says Esther Perel, a New York City psychotherapist. “For men, sex is the connection. Sex is the language men use to express their tender loving vulnerable side,” Perel says. “It is their language of intimacy.”
Those with higher sex drives and men who are less sexually satisfied masturbate more while more satisfied masturbate less. Some men wonder if they masturbate too much. There is no ‘normal’ amount of masturbating but it should not be getting in the way of daily activities or responsibilities. Some people even find that masturbation can help with sleep.
Masturbating is a personal activity than can help people relieve stress, get in touch with their sexual side, and sleep better. Whether you are a man or a woman, masturbating is normal and can have numerous health benefits.
