I vote magical brownies because I swear I had an orgasm looking at that molten lava cake... That said, my husband and I disagreed...at first. I said it is sex, he says it isn't, because it should involve two people. I brought up cybersex and mutual masturbation, which he does believe is sex, and I believe is good fun when done with the right person. Yes, oral is sex! It is hot, sloppy, wonderful sex! =^.^=

Default is masturbation sex?

I said yes. I think it depends on what the intended purpose is, if it's ok sex or great sex.

Sometimes when I do it it's like just needing a stress relief, or I'm horny and need to just let one go. Other times when I'm really into it and my mind goes to fantasies or past experiences, man! My head spins when I'm done. The energy flows right out of my body and I'm out like a light.

Of course it's different when you're with someone. The orgasms maybe intense but in a different way.

As someone else mentioned, "the results are the same". Masturbation frees your mind and body for a brief moments in time. So does sex with others.
