The Latin verb masturbari is of uncertain origin. Terms such as playing with yourself, pleasuring oneself and slang such as wanking,  jerking off,  and frigging are common. Self-abuse and self-pollution  were common in early modern times and are still found in modern dictionaries.
A large variety of other euphemisms and dysphemisms exist which describe masturbation. For a list of terms, see the entry for masturbate in Wiktionary. It may also involve touching, rubbing, or pinching the nipples or other erogenous zones while masturbating.
Both sexes sometimes apply lubricating substances to intensify sensation. Reading or viewing pornographysexual fantasiesor other erotic stimuli may lead to a desire for sexual release such as by masturbation.
Some people get sexual pleasure by inserting objects, such as urethral soundsinto the urethra the tube through which urine and, in men, semen, flows a practice known as urethral play or "sounding". Men and women may masturbate until they are close to orgasmstop for a while to reduce excitement, and then resume masturbating.
They may repeat this cycle multiple times. This "stop and go" build-up, known as " edging ", can achieve even stronger orgasms. The most common masturbation technique among males is to hold the penis with a loose fist and then to move the hand up and down the shaft.
This type of stimulation is typically all that is required to achieve orgasm and ejaculation.
The speed of the hand motion varies throughout the masturbation session. Male masturbation techniques may differ between males who have been circumcised and those who have not.
Some techniques which may work for one individual can be difficult or uncomfortable for another. For males who have not been circumcised, stimulation of the penis typically comes from the "pumping" of the foreskinwhereby the foreskin is held and slid up and down over the glanswhich, depending on foreskin length, is completely or partially covered and then uncovered in a rapid motion.
The outer foreskin glides smoothly over the inner foreskin. The glans itself may widen and lengthen as the stimulation continues, becoming slightly darker in colour, while the gliding action of the foreskin reduces friction.
This technique may also be used by some circumcised men who have sufficient excess skin remaining from their circumcision. For circumcised males, on whom the glans is mostly or completely uncovered, this technique creates more direct contact between the hand and the glans.
To avoid friction, irritation and soreness from this resulting friction, some may prefer to use a personal lubricant, masturbation creamor saliva. The shaft skin can also be slid back and forth with just the index finger and thumb wrapped around the penis.Masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one's own genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm.
The stimulation may involve hands, fingers, everyday objects, sex toys such as vibrators, or combinations of these. Manual stimulation of a partner, such as fingering, a handjob or mutual masturbation, is a common sexual act and can be a substitute for.
