If you want to see people mentally freak out while trying to appear calm on the outside, ask them to talk about the first time they masturbated. Given that your friends might find that a tad strange, the folks at Cut decided to do it for you.
They asked 100 people this very personal question and filmed their reaction. Oh, and their answers, too. And it was amazing.
One woman just looked super, super uncomfortable. There was a lot of nervous laughter. Still, some people opened up about it.
Plenty of women talked about using a shower massage head to get off, while others noticed something was different when they climbed a metal pole on the playground. “I was like, ‘Whoa. What’s going on?’” one woman said.
Other women said they started out by humping their stuffed animals. “My parents would catch me doing that and they were like ‘Stop, stop that!’” one woman recalled.
And speaking of parents, Cut even got one guy’s mum to ask him the question, and he totally wasn’t having it. But other guys got real about the experience, noting: “It was like a massive tickle fight with your d*ck.“ A different guy added, "All of the sudden I thought I was going to pee."
The age that people started ranged from four to 30, and one woman said she felt guilty afterward because she was so young. Still, other women said they’ve never done it. “Why would I do it to myself when I can get someone else to do it for me?” one said.
A lot of people used magazines and shows for their inspiration, including the Victoria’s Secret catalog, Real Sex, Fear Factor, and Sex in the City.
