The most basic and common male masturbation technique is to simply grip the penis with a loose fist and then to move the hand up and down the shaft. This simple type of stimulation is usually all that is required to achieve a basic sexual climax and ejaculation. The objective is to create gentle friction that stimulates the sensitive nerves on the glans (top) of the penis, which causes a sensation of pleasure.
The "Full Fist" masturbation illustration (shown below) displays how all the fingers and thumb may be wrapped around the penis. However, the masturbator may choose to use only certain fingers. The up and down motion can be used at any comfortable speed during masturbation. The speed may vary according to the pleasure responses the masturbator feels during the session. Moving faster when approaching orgasm is common.
If the penis is uncircumcised, the masturbator can pump the skin up and down to cause it to glide across the shaft and the glans. If the penis is circumcised, lubrication may be required if the friction from masturbation causes discomfort.
Tip - The "Stop-and-Go" - Many men like to stop for a moment and then start again to prolong the masturbating session. In addition to stopping and starting, squeezing the penis to cause the erection to subside a little bit during the stop period can also add to the time before orgasm.
