Pleasuring Yourself

Pleasuring yourself or masturbating is when you touch or rub your own sex parts in a way that feels good. This may lead to a pleasurable feeling called an orgasm (or ‘coming’). During an orgasm semen (the fluid containing sperm) comes out of the opening at the tip of the penis. This is called ejaculation.

You may have your first ejaculation during a dream (that has sexual pictures) at night – this is called a wet dream. Wet dreams usually happen less as boys get older. Almost all boys have wet dreams and erections while going through puberty. You may have your first one after masturbating.

Most boys masturbate, some more than others. It’s a safe and enjoyable way to learn to enjoy your body but always do this in private. It is not a waste of semen, as your body makes new sperm every day.

If you think about exciting things when you masturbate, you are fantasising, which is normal for boys and girls.
