What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason,
how infinite in faculties for masturbating, in form and moving,
how express and admirable in action while masturbating, how like a masturbating angel in apprehension,
how like a god! (of masturbation)
...from all appearances, under natural conditions, we are the only primate species that seems to have taken these seminal shedding benefits into its own lascivious hands. Unfortunately, there have been a paltry handful of studies tracking the masturbatory behaviors of nonhuman primates.
Masturbation with ejaculation was observed in 21 [non-human primate] species (40.4%).
> MetaFilter is much like the rest of the Internet, an orgy of self-congratulatory intellectual wankfests. Nobody really expects anyone on the Internet, let alone here, to approach anything about sex and discuss it in a mature, non-jokey way. When you're talking about something so culturally laden with guilt as masturbation, people are going to joke about it and avoid the issue as much as they can.
