I voted yes. Because I have had very satisfying sexual experiences masturbating...alone. And then there is mutual masturbation with a partner which I have really enjoyed more than a few times!!

Oh thank god. I was starting to feel like the odd man out here! hehe

Case in point. Last weekend I had a self pleasure session that was really good! Granted, my gf walked in and out of the room a couple times while I was doing it (she wasn't in the mood... how she could resist me, I don't know. She did affectionately tell me I looked sexy doing it... ), so that did enhance it a little, but even if she hadn't , it still would've been a very good, multi-orgasmic session.

Later in the day, I went to visit one of my sweeties. We had sex. He didn't really seem to be in the mood (jeez, must've been something going around that day!) and the sex was just ok. He seemed a bit distant. I guess had other things going on in his life that were distracting him.

So, even tho the 2nd session was with a partner, the solo session was much sexier... I had several Os with my sweetie also, but still, I had been more turned on by myself earlier than I was with him. So, same quantity of orgasms both times, but different quality.

Well, as you know, Ari, I arouse easily and often as well. I guess it's just a matter of semantics. If it involves stimulating and gratifying engorged reproductive organs, it's sex, in my book.

and dictionary.com agrees with me.

sex (seks)

noun

1. either of the two divisions, male or female, into which persons, animals, or plants are divided, with reference to their reproductive functions
2. the character of being male or female; all the attributes by which males and females are distinguished
3. anything connected with sexual gratification or reproduction or the urge for these; esp., the attraction of those of one sex for those of the other
4. intercourse (sense )
5. the genitalia

I actually knew I was bucking the trend. I know thats what it says, but I just can't bring myself to use it in that context ...

I seem to remember a previous thread where you described your stimulation and engorging enjoyment

mmmm. engorgement. haha.

I think it's interesting how split the poll numbers are, both male and female. And 4 magical brownies is pretty darned delicious.

I have a recipe that works for me. Seriously. Fires up a lot of the same brain chemicals. If I hadn't developed a low carb, sugar free version I'm pretty sure I'd weigh 7 or 8 hundred pounds by now.

Mocha Tuffle Kisses, they're called. My partner has another name for them. he calls them Chocolate P*ss**s.

Mmm hmmm . . .

*mentally comparing ingredients list against ingredients on hand in kitchen*

Ok, yeah, see y'all later. I just thought of something I need to do . . .

You CANNOT tease me like this! Can you share the recipe? (BTW, I love your partner's name for them.)
