Men who wank more use condoms more – why?

It’s now proven jerking off is not bad for you and it’s even not only okay for you  – but it’s positively good for your health.   The Pleasure Project has been pushing the art of touching yourself as safe good sex for a while. Now a recent study has shown that boys who report being regular wankers are more likely to use a condom when they have sex.

The study published in this month’s  “Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine” interviewed a small, but cross-sectional sample of American young people and has many findings that would not surprise any of us pleasure seekers.

Across all ages, young men admitted to wanking more than women, 74% of men to 41% women ( come on girls start admitting to your own self-worship.)  Masturbation increased with age and in men, the five knuckle shuffle was associated with condom use, but in women, it was not.

We, Pleasure Propagandists, posit that this might be because those young men love touching their members and know just how to roll a condom on in a sexy way and are, lets face it, more comfortable with themselves and therefore better lovers. What’s your theory?

The authors conclude that “Health care providers should recognize that many teens masturbate and discuss masturbation with patients because masturbation is integral to normal sexual development”.

Um yeh…..so it’s great that masturbation is being seen as “normal” by the medical world and fantastic that an association between wanking and condom use in young men has been discovered.

Just a shame that it’s taken so long.

Whats your theory – why do wanking men use condoms more?
