Self-Pleasuring Statistics: What’s the Frequency, Dude? By John Dugan

  in Wellness, Fitness and Diet | Published 2016-10-15 12:37:13 | 277 Reads | Unrated


There are statistics on everything, but it’s hard to know how reliable those are on self-pleasuring. Still, one thing is clear: it’s a popular pastime for lots of men!

Full Content

Considering that it’s something basically all men are alleged to do, there are surprisingly few current statistics about self-pleasuring. There’s no doubt that it’s a popular hobby, but it would be valuable to have a large-scale, thorough study which focuses on self-pleasuring in the way it deserves to be addressed. Men (and presumably women) are going to self-stimulate no matter what the actual statistics are, if for no other reason than it’s fun (and also happens to contribute to good male organ care), but knowing what

the facts are might make the practice of self-pleasuring more acceptable for all.




There have been countless surveys and polls about self-pleasuring, but there problems with most of them. First off, many of them are simply “click bait’ or “engagers,” ways of keeping people involved with a particular website. And that creates some serious sampling biases. For example, if 1,000 men respond to a self-pleasuring poll of an adult website, and 900 of them say they self-gratify twice a day or more, that frequency may be skewed by the fact that the men answering the poll are not necessarily representative of the male population at large.


In addition, there can be problems with scope. If a survey asks if a person self-gratifies, that can mean different things to different people. One guy may answer yes, because he has self-fondled a few times in his life; another who has also self-pleasured only a few times in his life may answer no because he may not consider such low frequency worth reporting. And what happens if one man considers fondling the male organ without releasing seed to qualify as self-pleasuring whereas another respondent does not?




All of which is to say that there are too few self-pleasuring studies of significant value, especially among those conducted in the last few years. However, here are some statistics that are commonly swatted about.


Tenga, a company that manufacturers sensual toy products, conducted a survey of 1,200 adults. The data is likely skewed, but it does present some interesting figures, including:


  • 95% of men and 81% of women have self-stimulated in their lifetimes.
  • On average, men self-gratify 15 times a month and women self-gratify 8 times a month.
  • On average, people who are not in a partnered relationship self-pleasure 16 times a month; those who are in a partnered relationship self-pleasure 10 times a month, on average.
  • Millennials self-stimulate 15 times per month, as compared to Generation X-ers (12 times per month) and Baby Boomers (7 times per month).


That last statistic is somewhat consistent with what is generally “known” about self-pleasuring and age – that people self-gratify more as teens and young adults, then slow down somewhat – although it’s often speculated that rates of self-pleasuring pick up again after age 50 or thereabouts. One 2010 study by the Journal of Sensual Medicine found a somewhat different picture: Only 43% of males aged 14-17 had self-stimulated within the last month of the survey, starting an arc that rose steadily to ages 25-29 (almost 69%), then fell steadily to age 70+ (28%). 


A 2016 online survey by StatisticBrain again found that 95% of men self-pleasure, and that 40% do so daily and 55% self-stimulate weekly. The same survey found that 70% of married men self-gratify and that 17% of all men have used a vibrator when self-indulging.


Staying in good shape, no matter the stats


The statistics may not be 100% representative, but they do verify that a lot of self-pleasuring goes on daily. So in order to keep their members in good shape, men need to regularly apply a top drawer male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin).  Male organs that have been rubbed raw need skin revitalization, which requires hydration, so use a crème with both Shea butter and vitamin E, two excellent moisturizers. In addition, excessive self-pleasuring may cause some loss of male organ sensitivity; a crème with neuroprotective acetyl L carnitine is the ticket for helping restore diminished sensation in the manhood.
